  1 Then God spoke all these words, saying, 2 “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 3 You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not.   Listen to Pastor Foster as continues his sermon series on a walk through the Book of Habakkuk.

The book of Jonah is just such a story. All of us have heard it. We know how God wanted to send Jonah to Nineveh, but Jonah ran from God, got swallowed by a big fish, and then finally went anyway. He preached to the people of Nineveh, they repented, and God saved the city from destruction.   THE LADDER begins with renunciation of the world, and ends with God, Who is love (1 John ). Although the book was written for monks, any Christian living in the world will find it an unerring guide for ascending to God, and a support in the spiritual life.

Jacob's Ladder (Hebrew: סולם יעקב Sulam Yaakov) is a ladder leading to heaven that was featured in a dream the biblical Patriarch Jacob had during his flight from his brother Esau in the Book of Genesis. The significance of the dream has been debated, but most interpretations agree that it identified Jacob with the obligations and inheritance of the people chosen by God, as understood.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (–) was one of the most influential figures in the nineteenth century. He exemplified the activism of evangelicalism, publishing millions of sermons, pastoring the largest church of his day, founding a college for pastors and an orphanage, and much more. Many books and dissertations have been written on Spurgeon’s life, theological contribution, and far.

God, Why Should I Trust A Book That Condones Slavery And Misogyny. Series: God Why. Pastor Derwin Gray Aug 9, The Bible talks quite a bit about slavery and women. In many biblical accounts, these groups of people were treated as second-class citizens. Does the Bible condone these behaviors.

great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.” C.

The parallels potentially become more poignant when we remember that the author of the epistle is James the Just, the younger brother of Jesus (Matt. Then there were 16 sermons on the armor of God discussed in Ephesians (See: The Priority of Prayer).

I want to conclude this series with a message that will summarize what is necessary to be without fear and have victory in spiritual battle. James states, “Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”. (4) The goodness of God is a foundational truth that shapes our perspective toward God and His dealings with us in this life.

The goodness of God is a fact to which the Bible often testifies. It is a fact which every Christian should believe and embrace. But more than this, it is a perspective through which all of life’s experiences should be.Basically God’s answer is: “I am God, I know what I am doing and you don’t.” God is the one who created this universe and God is the one ultimately in control of it.

We should just trust God. Sure, things happen that don’t make sense or don’t seem right to us. But we are incapable of understanding the fullness of the universe.
