Saved from East to West

Psalms 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. This ‘east to west’ reference is more than a map coordinate, for within this statement is a glorious promise that Jesus was to fulfill for you and for me. Why “east to west”? To guard against […]

Seventy Times Seven?

Matthew 18:21-22 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? (22) Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven. Why “seventy times seven”? Are we to believe we should forgive every […]

A Thousand Years As One Day

The Bible does not say Peter’s “thousand years” statement is about a timetable foretelling the years found in a dispensation of time.

Locating the Borders of a Promise: Part 6 of 9

Making Wrongs Right Through Repentance Due to the sins of their people, both Daniel and Nehemiah found themselves in exile from the Promised Land. While there, they exemplified the need for individual and corporate repentance. They did this because they knew what was required of God before their people could return back to the land. […]

Locating the Borders of a Promise: Part 5 of 9

Broken Rules Lead To Eviction Time has shown that the more man tries to deify himself, the more demonic he becomes. In this rebellion against God’s land stipulations we see an example of how men can usurp the lordship of God by trying to control their own lives through their own self-governed will. If men […]
