Editor’s Letter | Even in bleak times, there is hope, and hope comes through faith in the promises of God. God gave His only Son so we could receive it and walk in abundance through our journey. However, if we never flex a muscle, it becomes lame. Faith is a muscle that gains its strength through a relationship with Jesus. Each time we believe what the Word says over what the world says, we flex our “faith muscle.” And God will only meet you at your level of faith in His abilities. 

Return Unto Me: Getting to the Heart of the Matter

by Angela Errett | I believe that when God sent you to earth for His purpose, He gave you a piece of His heart. Think of it this way, when someone leaves for a long journey to serve in an army, we will say, “They took a piece of my heart with them.” Same thing! What would happen if your son, daughter, or spouse didn’t want to talk to you while serving? They never call, never write, and you are never a thought that crosses their mind. Or do they only call you on your birthday, a holiday…

REVEALING God’s Glory | Sharing the Walk with God

by Alan Tucker | In the summer of 1998, I finally realized one of my dreams: I got to play at the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links in California. If you have followed my past testimonies, you know that golf was my life at one time. It consumed me. A friend even wrote a song about me once called “Addicted to Golf.” Sadly, the experience of playing Pebble Beach was underwhelming as the golf course was under major repair..

Faux Pas Mercy

by Bob Jacobus | A faux pas is a misstep, often a blunder or tactless act. Untimely, unthoughtful remarks or expression of opinions, gaffes if you will, are also considered faux pas. There are outcomes or consequences to these bloopers, often more severe than the offence. In the Kingdom of Heaven, an unintentional sin and errors in faith, no matter how innocent, are missteps and most definitely faux pas. Aren’t you glad that God has great mercy for faux pas?

The Door

by Angela Errett | What is a door? Anyone reading this knows that a door is a passageway from one space into another. It is a doorway, a gate, you must go through to get from one room to another or from the “outdoors” into the “indoors.” Everywhere you look, there are doors; front doors, back doors, side doors, attic doors. A door on your car. A door on the bus. A door on every building you pass on the street. 

The Harmony and Utility of Psalm 23

by Bob Jacobus | Psalms are beautiful, artistic expressions of faith and hope. Psalm 23 is especially practical. The thing is, how does one translate the abstract beauty of these divine words into applied utility? First of all, one needs to understand a psalm before trying to appropriate the power it contains. Secondly, the psalm must be fully embraced as truth and a gateway to hope. Finally, the psalm needs to be internalized and adopted as part of one’s nature. The treasure of harmony and utility comes towards the end of this essay. Psalm 23 is particularly important because it covers the…

The Child Who Cried Wolf

by Bob Jacobus | In 1867 a story was published in a collection called Aesop’s Fables.

Aesop didn’t suffer from woke expectations; he just told simple stories to teach important truths like “The Shepherd Boy and The Wolf.” This particular story has many applications in today’s world. Another wolf parable with implicit cautions would be “Little Red Riding Hood.” And the Bible also uses the wolf as a literary instrument to express truth and warning. It is not the purpose of this essay to offend; however, it travels through the valley of the shadow of post-modern correctness…

The Land of Nod – Cain and Abel

by Angela Errett | I recently woke from a dream that impacted me deeply.

The backdrop was deep brown with black undertones; however, the subject matter could not be mistaken… Story of Cain and Able

The Perfect Center

by Bob Jacobus | In these modern times, humanity is measured on a linear scale, which functions much like the weight and balance beam. The turning point is the exact, perfect center. To one side is the left and to the other side is the right. No one stands at the perfect center. If you believe in God, then God stands there, except deity is not measured on a human scale. What is the fulcrum, the perfect standard of humanity? With today’s rhetoric and yesterday’s behavior, there can be no doubt that people are either left or right on the balance beam of eternity.

The Narrow Way

by Angela Errett | What will the world look like when God is no longer present? When His hand of mercy is removed for the judgment of the wicked? I do not think even the godless people of the world can fathom the amount of darkness that will prevail when that time comes. Hollywood pumps out scenarios with black-hearted agendas and manifestos, yet, we have never lived in a time when some form of God’s grace was not present. 

Paschal Lamb of Easter

by Angela Errett | Have you ever heard of the Paschal lamb? In the Jewish religion, the Paschal lamb, also called the Passover lamb, is ritually sacrificed in observance of Jewish law on the evening of the Passover.

I Have Redeemed Them: Choose God’s Seal Not Man’s

by Angela Errett | We have entered into unprecedented times with the disruptions of all the world’s systems. However, for the Body of Christ, it will be a glorious reunion with the Kingdom of God. Throughout the Bible, God supplies the needs of His people, protects, and keeps His Word, whether to satisfy His justice or confirm His grace and mercy.

The Price of Admission

by Bob Jacobus | There is a cost associated with every event. Sometimes the ticket is zero; however, that does not mean it is free. Resources are spent or sacrificed to get to the venue’s door. Often a benefactor purchases a ticket and gifts it to another for admittance. Tickets are never free; someone somewhere pays the price.

Are You Existing in the Wrong OS? (Operating System) | by Angela Errett | Recently, I needed to update all of my computer systems. It had been a couple years since I had done anything other than the required operating system security updates and such, so I was dreading the amount of time it would take to complete. I kept putting it off and putting it at the bottom of my list of things to do. Each Monday, I would add it to my calendar, and by Friday, another week would pass by. The attitude was, “Well, I’ll try again next week.”

Another wave of events unfolds. Back and forth, it goes. Up over our toes, then back out to the sea of unknowns.

Cast Your Pearls

Cast Your Pearls | by Angela Errett | So the world wants you to believe it knows the truth. We have been shown by all types of mediums such as news, music, films, companies, social media, TV, video games, and especially popular culture, that destruction, despair, and the plight of humankind is coming. Sadly, they may or may not know they are prophesying for the prince of the power of the air. They undoubtedly can be referred to as the many false prophets spoken of in the Bible. And I have to be honest, for the world, destruction is coming. But there is hope!

Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

By Angela Errett
The Kingdom has a governing body, built by God, who knows the truth about good and evil–abundance and lack.

Water, like air and blood, is necessary for life and all three flow. Man can create none of them; he can only manage them. They are fruitful when they are placed inside of boundaries but can be destructive when they breach their confines. In other words, they get out of balance…
