WHY ?

Why will people go astray when they have this blessed Book to guide them?” – Michael Faraday
“If all the great books of the world were given life and were brought together in convention, the moment the Bible entered, the other books would fall on their faces as the gods of Philistia fell when the ark of God was brought into their presence in the temple of Dagon.” – Isaac Newton
“There’s a big difference between the books that men make and the Book that makes men.” – Unknown
“What a Book!  Vast and wide as the world, rooted in the abysses of creation and towering up behind the blue secrets of Heaven – sunset and sunrise, promise and fulfillment, birth and death, the whole drama of humanity all in this Book!” – Heinrich Hein
“To what shall we compare it?  It is as though one man entered a Cathedral and struck a note on the great organ and left.  Thirty-nine other men at different periods did the same.  If we were to gather these notes together, are we to suppose that there is a means of preservation, which will make up the great work Handel’s Messiah?  Should we say it just happened?  No.  We would be justified in believing that some great mind had supervised it.”  - Charles Feinberg, Ph.D.
A Bible that is falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t. — C.H. Spurgeon
“The Old Testament opens with man made in the image of God.  The New Testament opens with God in the image of man.”  - Unknown
“There’s enough dust on some of your Bibles to write damnation with your fingers.” – C.H. Spurgeon
“The Bible was written in tears, and to tears it yields its best treasures.” – A.W. Tozer
“One evidence of the value of the Holy Bible is the character of those who oppose God’s Word.” – Unknown
“God’s Word is as good as He is.  There is an old saying that a man is as good as his word.  Well, God is as good as His Word.  His character is behind what He has said.”  - J. Vernon McGee
“The Bible is God’s chart for you to steer by, to keep you from the bottom of the sea and to show you where the harbor is and how to reach it without running on rocks and bars.” – Henry Ward Beecher
“There is no book so varied as the Bible, nor so full of concentrated wisdom.”  - Herbert Hoover

GOD IS NEVER LATE






God Can Move Your Mountain

When things seem so impossible
And life’s so hard to bear,
God can move your mountain
Before you reach despair
.
He’ll never leave you or forsake you-
Trust in Him always.
Be anxious then, for nothing
And never cease to pray.

                             So keep on climbing higher,
Be patient while you wait.
For God is never early
And also never late.

HOLDING ON TO GOD

Job. 2-3        And the Lord said unto satan, hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an up-right man one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?  And still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him to destroy him with out cause.       Now that is true commitment,  Job had lost his health, his children and his fortune, but Job didn't curse God or let go of Him, because he trusted God to do the right thing for him.  Unwavering commitment  is a cornerstone of unwavering faith, it is easy to let circumstances dictate our emotions when times are tough or hardship comes our way, puts us to looking for an escape, but fortunatly we have Gods written promises to help us hold on and that alone can make us victorous in our most intence struggles. If Job could hold on to God in such a time of trouble, guess what so can we. " I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me. Philippians 4: 12-14    When you're at the end of your rope and trouble over takes you, tie a knot in the rope and hold on, God will rescue you.

CHALLENGING QUESTIONS

"What if Heaven isn't real after all?"        "Is Jesus The one and only way to Heaven?"   "Will it really matter at the end of my life how I lived it?"   Many before us have wanted to know, where they could find satisfying answers for such questions as these? We can search "Fine Arts" "History" "Math"  and other books with out much success our  most
diligent search will take us to the "Bible" Where the answers are to be found.        (Question   # One:) What if Heaven isn't real after all?  Acts 7 48-50   Howbeit the most high dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne,and earth is my footstool; what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand made all these things.  ( Question  # Two: ) Is Jesus the one and only way to God?    John 14: 6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the father but by me.    Acts 4: 12   Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name given under Heaven given amoung men, whereby we must be saved.       ( Question  #  Three: )  Will it really matter at the end of my life how i lived it?    John 17: 20-26      Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall beleive on me through their word; That they all may be one: as thou, Father art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may beleive that thou hast sent me And the glory which thou gavest me,I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou has sent me and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. Father I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundations of the world. O Righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love where with thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.                         "FROM THE WORDS OF OUR LORD"

WHAT IS TRUTH ?

Many people today, say there is no such thing as absolute "Truth." From the philosophers around the world the word goes out that "Truth" is only what you want it to be and what is "Truth" for you isn't necessarily "Truth" for anyone else. In the Bible Jesus Christ declares, I will tell you the "Truth" He affirms it by saying in (John 14:6) " I am the way, the "Truth" and the life." We must not be misled by the opinions of others. God has revealed His "Truth" to us Himself, in His written word THE HOLY BIBLE and because Jesus Christ  said He is the absolute "Truth." We can depend on His word of asurity, for the answer to what is truth. Do you trust his definition or mans?
