A soldier that was on the Philippines during WWII reported that even though the area was pretty secure the enemy often tried to infiltrate the food storage area. One such man dressed in GI clothing worked himself into the chow line at noon. The camp cook spotted him and called for the MPs who were patrolling the area.

agf-blanco.com 630 AM KSLR @ 4:30 PM Sat. 1Peter 1:7 says, “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perishes, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.” Peter goes on to say in 4:12, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you.” It is clear from these verses, and many others, that our faith as Christians ...

By Mrs. Lawrence Coffee “1 My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, 2 for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. 3 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Prov.

God’s Word is SO GREAT! For me, it doesn’t matter who wrote it, or even why it was written or to whom it was sent; I gain by reading it. I learn of God and His ways, and how He shared His love and Wisdom to man over and over and over again.

A wise man once remarked, “Drawing on my fine command of language, I said nothing.” If you cannot speak with purity, the best thing that you can say, no matter how large your vocabulary is nothing. We read, “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Ephesians 4:29).

I encourage you to read Mat 19:1-9. Verse 4-6 says “And he (Jesus) answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Paul said, “We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and love which you have for all the saints; because of the hope laid up for you in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of the truth, the gospel..” (Colossians 1:4-5). A look at Paul’s prayers reveal the mind of a spiritual man.

Some people don’t like the Wisdom of Proverbs, but I hope you make it through this one! Proverbs are great! In the Amplified Version the word ‘wisdom’ is capitalized, and to me that means wisdom is of God, or is God. Solomon was given wisdom of God, by God, and so the wisdom Solomon shared was from God.

I encourage you to read 2Tim 3:8-15. Verse 12 says, “All who live Godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution”. Last Sunday was National Day of Prayer for the persecuted church around the world. Many don’t realize it, but there is more persecution against Christians in the world today, than in any other time in history.

I may have published this Psalm before; it’s one of my favorites. We go through highs and lows (biorhythms). Lawrence calls it going through the hills and valleys. All I know is some days I’m up and some days I’m down. Some days I feel strong enough to read Ephesians, and some days I just need the reassurance of Hebrews.

Ephesians 5:31-33 says, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” This week we will continue our series on marriage by revisiting a sermon I preached over a year ago titled, “Marriage and the Mystical Union

The 91st Psalm is such a great writing of faith and hope, and even for good health. Have you read it lately? When I read it, I insert myself into it as a prayer, present tense. Psalm 91 “1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover ...
