God’s Pattern for Parents


We wanted to say Happy Father’s Day and bring this special bible teaching we think is very important. There are many children they do not have a dad today or they have a dad but in physical form only. Pray for these children and if your an adult pray for your dad, God Bless you!

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”
—Ephesians 6:4

If parenting wasn’t hard enough, wondering if you’re doing it correctly adds to the stress and effort. Advice abounds in countless books, blogs, websites, and seminars—some of it can be helpful, some is common sense, some is actually harmful. So how do you discern the good from the bad—the true from the false—when it comes to parenting? What does it take to raise your kids in a way that invites the Lord’s blessing on your family?

In God’s Pattern for Parents, John MacArthur unpacks practical, clear, biblical instruction for dads and moms. An excellent study for new and veteran parents alike, parents-to-be, and even grandparents. [source]

False Religion Leading The Way For The False Savior —> The preparing of a false religion is rising up and for those who know the scripture they can see it coming. A false religion will tell you that everyone can coexist and be united on common ground. In order for the one religion to occur then other religions must be eliminated. Each religion believe…

Anger – Are you expressing Anger? —> Anger is common to man. Everyone has anger. However, anger does not stand alone there are other emotions involved. So how did man become godless, full of doubt, fear, insecurity, and anger? The world blames parents, environment, life issues, and so on. The truth is everyone is born knowing how to pitch fits. Adam and Eve lived in a perfect

Don’t Worry —> Don’t worry sounds so simple but we all know it is not because it is “easier said than done” when we are worrying about something or someone. We even go so far as to worry about the what ifs and things that never happen. Well, for me I became determined to take a different route over worry. Don’t get me wrong, worry and fear still come but I go to God’s word and challenge my thoughts and feelings….

The Terminal Generation


Our planet is terminal but believers are not. In fact, believers today may be the terminal generation in that we are likely the generation that will soon exit. The prominent signs that tell us so are everywhere.

Jesus chastised the Pharisees for not being able to discern the signs of His first coming. So why would God not want us to be watching for indicators of His soon return?

Sure, many of the signs manifest during the Tribulation, but they are casting a giant shadow now. To the Christian, they are a herald of His coming and to the unbeliever, they are a warning that they are running out of time… more

Firmly Planted


Psalm 1:1-3 typography by nthepzzBlessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. Psalm 1:1-3

It is possible to spend your whole life knowing about the truths of God and never experiencing any of them. Simply knowing about the truths of God does not mean that they have become a part of your life. Here is the important question: What are you doing with the word of God? Some people allow themselves to come under the influence of ungodly thinking to the point that God’s Word makes no difference to them. If you seek your counsel from ungodly persons, you will find yourself moving away from the direction God’s Word commands.

If you intentionally seek out sinners as your companions, they will lead you down paths that take you far from God. If you choose to join those who are scornful, you will eventually become cynical. The righteous man does not find encouragement in the opinions of others but in God’s Word. He is not content with a surface knowledge of Scripture but meditates on it day and night until he is satisfied that what he reads reflects his own experience. He becomes like a fruit tree standing firmly on the bank of the river. The tree is well nourished and produces delicious fruit and bountiful leaves. People come from miles around to sit in its shade and eat its fruit.

If you allow God to implement His Word in your life, others will draw encouragement from you. The more you grow in God’s righteousness, the stronger you will become. Some people would look in vain to find anyone they were encouraging, but not so the righteous person. A constant stream of people will seek you out because they know that your life will be a blessing.

Godly Compassion for Hurting People


“The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22-23). Scripture often uses high and lofty expressions of God’s great compassion. But what does that compassion look like in tangible human terms? And are God’s people able to replicate His compassion?

The Old Testament furnishes a wonderful, practical, real-life illustration of God’s compassion in the account of David and Mephibosheth. Mephibosheth, a grandson of Saul, was permanently disabled. From a human perspective, he seemed the least likely person on earth for David to befriend and show kindness to.

He was the sole surviving male heir of Saul, the one person left on earth who might have tried to claim that the throne belonged to him by birthright. He was living in exile when David found him—forgotten, fearful, and essentially an outcast. He did not seek David’s favor, nor did David have any legal obligation to him. Yet David showed him extreme kindness in a way that epitomizes godly compassion, and perfectly reflects what Christian ministry to hurting people should look like…. more

Read all of 1 Kings 18 — below is parts of it
1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.

1 Kings 18:26 And they took the bull that was given them, and they prepared it and called upon the name of Baal from morning until noon, saying, “O Baal, answer us!” But there was no voice, and no one answered. And they limped around the altar that they had made. 27 And at noon Elijah mocked them, saying, “Cry aloud, for he is a god. Either he is musing, or he is relieving himself, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.” 28 And they cried aloud and cut themselves after their custom with swords and lances, until the blood gushed out upon them. 29 And as midday passed, they raved on until the time of the offering of the oblation, but there was no voice. No one answered; no one paid attention.

1 Kings 18 - Elijah on Mount Carmel - Scene 07 - Heavenly fire
by Bible Cartoons

1 Kings 18:30 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come near to me.” And all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that had been thrown down. 31 Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying, “Israel shall be your name,” 32 and with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord. And he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two seahs of seed. 33 And he put the wood in order and cut the bull in pieces and laid it on the wood. And he said, “Fill four jars with water and pour it on the burnt offering and on the wood.” 34 And he said, “Do it a second time.” And they did it a second time. And he said, “Do it a third time.” And they did it a third time. 35 And the water ran around the altar and filled the trench also with water.

1 Kings 18:36 And at the time of the offering of the oblation, Elijah the prophet came near and said, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that you are God in Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at your word. 37 Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and that you have turned their hearts back.” 38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, “The Lord, he is God; the Lord, he is God.”
