    Is Biblical Prophecy Fulfillment Always Exciting?

    Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse, they did. We overcame COVID, we’re taking a collective breath together, and now there’s this conflict over in Ukraine.

    We live in a time when our society is becoming increasingly disjointed and divided. Rather than celebrating what we have in common, it seems nowadays that we emphasize the things that separate us.

    Why the Crisis You’re Facing Might Be a ‘Divine Disruption’

    Let’s admit it: Life can be really hard. We all go through storms and trials and difficulties in life. We all experience loss and tragedy and suffering. Why are we made to go through hardship?

    Spirit-Filled Pastor: You Can’t Borrow Someone Else’s Walk with God

    We all have probably played the child’s game of Hide and Seek. Someone closes his eyes while the others hide, and then the “it” player counts to 20 and says, “Ready or not, here I come!” In a sense, that is what Jesus was saying in a parable He told about a Jewish wedding. In
