The enemy always conspires, consults, steals and twists so to deceive us. And I am not just talking about Satan, that ancient serpent of old who seeks to steal, kill and destroy, at times silent as a snake and again like a roaring lion, but I am talking about his workmen who carry out the deeds of darkness. Yes, humans do conspire and carry out pure evil conspiracies of all kinds. Although the enemy will often take the truth, twist the narrative and launch an accusatory, and retaliatory, attack against those who are wielding truth. Satan even takes the concept of the sword and trowel from the Scriptures twisting it into a perverted form of usage for the Masons. Fortunately C.H. Spurgeon used it correctly and in a God honoring and Christ exalting fashion (You can still get the Sword and Trowel Magazine today).

This last Sunday Pastor Brett Baggett, of Ekklesia Muskogee, gave the last of two messages dedicated to Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." There is little doubt that the exposition given through this verse is one of the best I have ever heard; it was clear, concise and as if one of the puritans or reformers was heralding the Word!
Truly a great means of grace in our day and age in standing firm in the evil days. Brother Don Currin gives a good and powerful message to fight today. Oh that we would be about the "plowing of our fallow ground." (Jeremiah 4:3; Hosea 10:12)
I feel inadequate and unskilled to be able to offer you this humble book review. I am so privileged and blessed of God, in His unmistakable providence, to have read Kurt M. Smith’s new book, “Thundering The Word: The Awakening Ministry of George Whitefield”. This book arrived only last week and I could not help but to lay my current seminary reading...
"God can never make us into wine if we object to the fingers He uses to crush us with. If God would only use His own fingers, and make me broken bread and poured-out wine in a special way! But when he uses someone whom we dislike..."

Trust, Trials and Honor By Stephanie Bys on Aug 24, 2020 05:35 am I lean not on my own understanding...I can't, because honestly this world does not make sense to me. We sat down and had a discussion a few days ago with a young man we know. As he was talking I could see…
