Powerless Faith is False Religion

The angel told Gideon, “Go in this thy might…” Judges 6:14. The thing that made Gideon a mighty man before God was the courage to DEFY powerless religion! Gideon was right, and Yahweh approved.  God has no use for a dead religious system either. The Lord stood by Gideon with manifestations of power.  MIRACLES. If idolatry […]

Miracles Part 5-Peter’s Adventures in Faith

Our study of Miracles continues from Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4… 1. We know that Paul “preached Christ.” His preaching was attended with MIRACLES and healings. (Acts 14:3-10) He also confronted demonic powers. (Acts 16:16-18) Paul himself testified of his methods: “And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in […]

(Luke 3:20) As human frailty crept into his soul, perhaps he saw […]

Miracles Part 1–Miracles in the Old Testament

Judges 6. The Midianites were ISIS terrorists of their day. “They came as grasshoppers for multitude…and they entered into the land to destroy it.” (verse 5)  “The Midianites were so cruel that many Israelites ran to the mountains and hid in caves.” (verse 2, CEV) When Israel cried out for relief, Yahweh responded by calling […]
