5 Peace Promise Scriptures for Christmas

At Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Besides the name Jesus, He has many other names, including the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6). What is real peace? Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “Know God, know peace. No God, no peace.” Peace begins with God and a relationship with Him through Jesus. To experience peace in our families and relationships, first we need to make eternal peace with God. Peace with God comes before we can experience the peace of {Read More}

Nativity Alive: Celebrating 2 Advents

Recently my friend wrote me, “After much prayer, I finally finished decorating our home. It’s much different than it has ever been.” She continued, “We are no longer celebrating the birth of a baby, we are celebrating the soon coming of the King. The One who is faithful and true.” (See Revelation 19:11.) What an exciting reminder! As we celebrate Jesus’ first Advent, we can also anticipate His second Advent. Although my decorating isn’t much different this year, I am listening {Read More}

Handbook to Help Understand End-Time Prophecy

* Afflilate links included. With nearly 900 prophecies about Jesus’s Second Coming in the Bible (three times as many as for His first coming), I certainly had questions about key events that will take place before the Lord’s return. I found The Prophecy Answer Book by David Jeremiah a good place to begin finding solid answers. Dr. Jeremiah’s book is organized by questions and answers on these topics: current events, the Rapture, the Tribulation, the Antichrist, the Second Coming, the Millennium, {Read More}

Sharing God’s Goodness with Your Grandkids

“We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. (Psalm 78:4 NIV) When I told my teenage grandson I would soon turn seventy, he asked, “What have you been doing all those years?” I laughed. “Well, for one thing, I raised two children, and one is your mother.” He smiled and nodded. “After that? Time with five grandchildren!” Although I chuckled at Peter’s question, it prompted me to think {Read More}

Is Cancer a Death Sentence?

As my husband and I sat in the doctor’s office, we held hands and prayed. Soon the oncologist entered and greeted us. He seemed like a kind man, but his words sounded harsh: “You have incurable cancer.” “Will I be dead in six months?” I asked. “I don’t think so,” he replied. “But I don’t know if you’ll get hit by a car.” “Good,” I replied. “We’re expecting another grandchild in six months, and I want to be here for {Read More}

Are You Facing Difficulties?

If you’re a sports fan, no doubt you’ve experienced the euphoria of seeing your favorite team come back and win when it looked impossible. Even if you’re not a sports enthusiast, perhaps you’ve known someone who faced great personal challenges and succeeded against unbelievable odds. The Bible also includes some amazing comeback stories. For example: King David committed adultery and arranged to have the woman’s husband killed in battle to cover his sin. Later, David repented and wrote many psalms {Read More}

Why Read the Book of Revelation

* Affiliate links included. When I told my friends I was reading Revelation, their responses showed why they shied away from reading the last book of the Bible. “I don’t understand it,” said one. Another replied, “It’s too scary for me.” I can relate to their comments, but perhaps they missed the prologue. Revelation is the only book of the Bible that comes with this promise to readers and listeners: “Blessed is the one who reads the words of this {Read More}

6 Opportunities for a Banner Year

“May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God” (Psalm 20:5 NIV). “Look! The Christmas banners are still up,” I told my husband as we drove through a nearby small town. Although the banners must have flapped in the wind for weeks, I noticed them for the first time in January. “They’re so colorful,” I continued and commented on each symbol as we drove by: candles, snowflakes, snowman, Christmas tree, {Read More}
