When we think of Judgement Day, we think of it as being somewhere out there in the future. We really don't consider that thousands of people around the earth will spend their final moments of life on earth today. The next thing they will know is the face of Jesus. Yes; it could happen to you or me today. Isn't it strange that though we know in our minds that what I just described will definitely happen someday, we just don't think it will be one of us today. But for many it w
Our message for this week considers what we do with our time that God has allotted us while we are here on the earth. I think we get so involved with living life that we forget to live life. The Lord has appointed or allotted us only so many days upon the earth. If we get so busy with the things of the world that we forget the things of the Lord, we will one day, maybe sooner than we think, regret it. Many people think that when we die that's the end of it.

Well, we think we would never deny our Lord and Savior. Peter said he not only would not deny Jesus, but he would go with Jesus to the death if necessary. It is so easy to be brave when you are in a crowd of believers who support you. But what happens when you are by yourself in a crowd of non-believers? Would we be like Peter and not only deny we even know Jesus, but accompany our falsehood with a curse? Peter never thought he would do such a thing. It is so much easier for
Many times we as Christians are confused as to what may constitute a denial of Christ. We think, like Peter, who had said, "“Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you,” (Matt 26:35b), that we would NEVER disown our Lord. Really! Have you too, made that decision? Though everyone else denies Christ, will you not also deny Him? Though we trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for our salvation and life eternal, we also fight against darkness and evil in high pl
