THAT WHICH DECAYS AND BECOMES OLD IS READY TO VANISH AWAY

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

God’s covenant with Abraham started with Abraham, not Moses. Thus, the Old Testament Mosaic law was not the basis of that covenant. Paul himself said  that, “Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing. But the keeping of the commandments of God [is what it is all about] (1 Corinthians 7:19).” “For in Jesus Christ, neither circumcision avails anything, nor uncircumcision; but, faith which works by love (Galatians 5:6).” And once again, “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision avails anythingnor uncircumcision, but [the primary issue is one becoming] a new creature [in Christ] (Galatians 6:15).”  Continue reading THAT WHICH DECAYS AND BECOMES OLD IS READY TO VANISH AWAY

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia – Two Tuscumbia men have been arrested in Virginia with a large amount of crystal methamphetamine and a firearm.

According to Virginia State Police, Jonathan Lorenzo Ricks, 22, a.k.a. “J.R.” of Tuscumbia, was arrested recently on one felony count of distribution of over 100 grams of a Schedule I/II drug, one felony count of distribution of a Schedule I/II drug while in possession of a firearm, and one felony count of importation of over one ounce of a Schedule I/II drug into the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Why is Revelation written to the Church and not the Jews?

Now, if Daniel and Revelation describe Israel’s end-time troubles, and not the church’s troubles, then why is Daniel in our Bible, and why is the book of Revelation written to the church and not to the Jews? A good question! Part of the answer: Most of the Old Testament was written about Israel, and not the church, yet Christians treasure all of the Bible. Moreover, when Revelation was written (the late 90s A.D.) the Jewish nation had been scattered throughout the nations (A. D. 70), so could not be reached as a united group. Continue reading Why is Revelation written to the Church and not the Jews?

Alabama is called the “Heart of Dixie”

Alabama’s leading Political Columnist Steve Flowers

As we begin this New Year of 2019, Alabama begins a new quadrennium in state government.

All of our Constitutional state officeholders begin their new four-year terms this month. Governor Kay Ivey will be sworn in for a four-year term on January 14. Also, being sworn in on Inauguration Day will be Will Ainsworth as Lt. Governor, John Merrill as Secretary of State, John McMillan as State Treasurer, Rick Pate as Agriculture Commissioner, Steve Marshall as Attorney General and Jim Ziegler will be sworn in for a second term as State Auditor.

Satan wants everyone to be lost and go to hell

The word tribulation itself seems to be shrouded in mystery. So, let us take a little side journey to demystify that subject. Many obviously think that, if the church does not go through the last-days Tribulation, it will not go through any tribulation. We Christians will miss out on that wonderful blessing. Huh? First of all, those believers who have already gone on to heaven would not be able to get in on that supposed blessing, for they will obviously not be here. Second of all, and just as important, tribulation is not a blessing anyway. Jesus said that some hear the Gospel preached and joyfully receive it, “yet they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a little while: For when either tribulation or persecution arises because of the Word, by and by they are offended (Matthew 13:21).” That means they change their minds about the Gospel, and turn away from it. So, tribulation is certainly not a blessing to those offended ones.  Continue reading Satan wants everyone to be lost and go to hell

Believers to be reunited with their glorified bodies and meet Christ in the air

More Pre-Tribulation Scripture passages: First Corinthians 15:51-52 (KJV): “Behold, I show [reveal to] you a mystery; We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed; in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we [who are still alive] will be changed [get our glorified bodies].” Although Paul unmystified that mystery, many yet shroud that end-time event in mysterious speculations. And, though this passage hints not at the time of that event, the next one does.  Continue reading Believers to be reunited with their glorified bodies and meet Christ in the air
