The Four Horsemen

Sunset-David(sharp) (1)

“I looked, and there in front of me was a *white horse” ~Revelation 6:2


“As we come to Revelation, chapter six, the scene shifts to earth, and the question naturally is: What happens on the earth when the church leaves? The Great Tribulation takes place, and that is the subject of chapters 6-18. The opening of the seven-sealed book is the subject specifically of chapter 6 through verse 1 of chapter 8. These seven seals open up the Great Tribulation Period. The Lord Jesus breaks the seals, and the four horses ride forth.

   The important thing for us to keep before us is the One who is worthy to open this book. He is directing everything now. As we were told at the beginning, this is the Revelation, the unveiling, of Jesus Christ. He is no longer the High Priest, standing as intercessor, but He is now the executor of God’s will upon the earth as He opens the seals of the book. All the judgments of the Great Tribulation usher forth from the seals out of which come the trumpets, the persons, and the bowls.

   The church will be delivered from this period of judgment because they are saved by the grace of God. Only those who reject the grace of God go into the Great Tribulation Period. There are certain factors that are brought into focus which increase the intensity and the ferocity of the Great Tribulation:

  1. The Holy Spirit will restrain evil no longer. Do I mean that He will leave the world? No, He won’t leave. He will take the church out of this world, but that does not mean He is going to leave. He will still be here, but He will not restrain evil any longer. In other words, man is going to have his little day during that period, and so is Satan.
  2. The true church, as light and salt, will be gone from the earth.
  3. The Devil knows he has but a short time. He is going to take advantage of it during this period, and God is going to give him free reign.
  4. Evil men will be free to carry out their nefarious plans. In other words, Antichrist will be able to take over this earth for a brief period of time.
  5. There will be direct judgment from God. We see that here in vs. 17, which says, “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

   I do not think that the Great Tribulation breaks suddenly like a great tornado. The opening of the seals is gradual, logical, chronological. They are opened one at a time. The Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, takes the seven-sealed book, and He breaks the first seal. Christ is going to break all the seals one after another. He is in full charge, and every creature in heaven is moving at His command. So the four horsemen are now going to ride forth. He breaks each seal, and says, “Go.”

   The Lord Jesus, the Lamb, opened the first seal and the first horseman on a white horse in Revelation 6:2 appeared, which likely refers to the Antichrist, who will be given authority and will conquer all who oppose him. The antichrist is the false imitator of the true Christ, who will also return on a white horse (Revelation 19:11-16).

   Antichrist does not appear as a villain. After all, Satan’s angels are angels of light. He is not going to have horns or cloven feet. Rather, he is going to be the most attractive man the world has ever seen. They will elect him, and the world will acclaim him because he has come in his own name. But when he takes over, it sure is going to be bad for the world.

   The Lamb broke open the second seal and a horseman on a red horse (Revelation 6:4) with a long sword and the authority to banish peace and bring anarchy to the earth  was revealed. War and killing broke out everywhere.

   The Lamb opened the third seal and I saw a third horseman, riding a black horse (Revelation 6:5-6) holding a pair of scales in his hand representing a world-wide famine.

   When the fourth seal was broken, a rider on a pale horse was seen (Revelation 6:5-6). It’s rider was named Death, and Hades was close behind. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine, plague; and by wild beasts of the earth!

   The pale horse represents plague and pestilence that will stalk the earth. It also encompasses the possibility of germ warfare. Dr. Frank Holdman, head of the University of Tennessee’s bacteriological department, said, “While the greater part of a city’s population could be destroyed by an atomic bomb, the bacteria method might easily wipe out the entire population within a week.”

   We have seen the riding of the four horsemen, and this follows exactly the pattern that the Lord Jesus gave while He was on the earth. In Matthew 24:5-8, in the Olivet Discourse, He said: “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many [the white horse]. And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars [the red horse]: see that you are not troubled: for all these must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines [the black horse], and pestilences [the pale horse], and earthquakes, in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” This is the opening of the Great Tribulation!

*White – speaks of peace (the true prince of peace, Jesus, rides the white horse in Rev 19) but this is a false peace and a false rider coming in the name of peace in Rev 6 – the antichrist.

Red – the red colour speaks of bloodshed and war which is what this rider on the horse causes.

Black – pictures famine here. Used in Lam 4:4,8-9 to speak of the effects of famine.

Pale green, Ashen – the colour of death which is what this horseman brings.

God’s Antidote

September 10, 2014

“My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life” Ps 119:50

When life brings circumstances beyond our control (and most actually are) we don’t always react in a Godly way. Sometimes fear and uncertainty take over, leading us away from God’s promises. Those feelings, although quite strong, must be brought into submission by our faith in God, whose promises will turn us away from fear and uncertainty.

Here is a partial list of feelings we all have that seem bigger than life. The antidote to these feelings is a strong dose of reading the promises of God daily!

Anxiety Phil 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:6-7 So, humble yourselves under God’s strong hand, and in his own good time he will lift you up. You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon him, for you are his personal concern.

Prov 12:25 An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up

Weakness 2 Cor 12:9 He said to me, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Comfort Ps 91:2 This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God and I trust Him.

Death Ps 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?

Blessings John 10:10 I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Fear 2 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love and a sound mind.

His Love For You Rom 8:38-39 I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Worries Phil 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Matt 6:34 Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

1 Pet 5:6-7 If you will humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, in his good time he will lift you up. Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.

Hope Romans 5:3-5 We can rejoice too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Anger Prov 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Peace John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.

Tired Isa 40:30-31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Trials James 1:2-4 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

Job 2:10 “When God sends us something good, we welcome it. How can we complain when he sends us trouble?” Even in all this suffering Job said nothing against God.

Weariness Matt 11:28-30 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.

Just as we learn math or English by studying textbooks, we also learn of our God and His promises that never fail by studying His book. More powerful than any textbook, the Bible is bathed in life-changing words of hope, infused with the Holy Spirit.

As life brings challenges and disappointments, His word will always give us guidance and comfort.

Self-serving Sermons


Does not our preaching contain too much of our own opinions and convictions, and too little of Jesus Christ? Let us try to get away from the poverty and pettiness of our own little convictions and problems, and seek the wealth and splendor that are vouchsafed to us in Jesus Christ.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Behind Closed Doors

Multnomah Falls

The Lord has said to me in the strongest terms: “Do not think like everyone else does. Do not be afraid that some plan conceived behind closed doors will be the end of you. Do not fear anything except the LORD Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. If you fear him, you need fear nothing else. He will keep you safe.”  Isaiah 8:11-14  New Living Translation 1996

The Power of Our Minds


“What he thinks is what he really is.”  Prov. 23:7


            “What’s on your mind?” Stan asked his good friend Evan. “You seem preoccupied.”

            “Funny you should ask,” Evan replied, stirring his coffee. “Lots of things are spinning around in my mind and some of them I am not happy with.”

            “Can you share?”

            Evan looked at his friend and decided to be honest…fully honest. “I think of how much better my life would be if I had not been passed over for promotion. And that leads me to think of how I’d like to tell my boss just what I think about that. Sometimes I actually imagine grabbing him by the shirt and yelling in his face. Stupid huh?”

            “No. Not stupid. Honest. Have you ever told anyone your true feelings about this before?” asked Stan.

            “Actually I haven’t and it feels good to get it out there. Now that I hear myself saying it, I realize how wrong it is and the word forgive pops into my mind. I’ve spent a lot of wasted time being secretly angry and bitter over what I thought I should get instead of taking my feelings to the Lord and giving Him the burden.”

            “Praise God, Evan. But don’t feel like the Lone Ranger. I spent several years being angry with Pastor Tim because I didn’t get selected to be an Elder. Since he and I don’t always see eye to eye, I knew he was behind it. And then one day over coffee, Tim told me he voted for me in every case but it seemed as though God was preventing my name from being selected. That shocked me and took me to my knees, asking God to forgive me. The power of the mind is staggering, Evan. And the power of forgiveness is even more powerful.”

            What do you “think”? Are you building a secret thought life that gives you the pleasure and gratitude you “think” you deserve? Are you secretly angry or disappointed but unwilling to share that with a friend? Satan is the father of lies and is willing and able to help you along that road. He did remind a hungry Jesus that He could turn stones into bread!

            John 5:39-40  “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! 40 Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life.”

            Philippians 2:5  Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus. . .who gave up all He had and took the nature of a servant.

            Matthew 22:37  “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.”

            Rom. 12:2-3  Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.3 Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.

            1 Cor. 8:2-3  Those who think they know something really don’t know as they ought to know.3 But the person who loves God is known by him.

            1 Cor. 3:18-20  You should not fool yourself. If any of you think that you are wise by this world’s standards, you should become a fool, in order to be really wise.19 For what this world considers to be wisdom is nonsense in God’s sight. As the scripture says, God traps the wise in their cleverness (Job 5:13);20 and another scripture says, The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are worthless (Ps. 94:11).

            Eph. 3:13-21  So please don’t lose heart because of my trials here. I am suffering for you, so you should feel honored.14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth.16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

            The power of thought to bring wealth has been the subject of many best-selling books; Because there is truth in it. A kernel of truth that says you will walk in whatever you think. Therefore, we must “Fix our thoughts on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and worthy of praise,” according to Philippians 4:8

Trust In The Lord


Do not fear anything except the LORD Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. Isaiah 8:12


Teddy spent his life debating issues with friends and fellow workers. He always had the latest information and had uncovered the deepest government secrets. He loved stunning and shocking everyone with his disturbing revelations.

            And then one day he realized his so-called “pursuit of truth” was eating away at his own peace. His verve for life was losing its lustre. His valiant efforts of tearing down the walls of deception had become self-destruction, like slowly drinking drams of poison.

            Teddy’s faith in God was taking a back seat to the latest developments of his quest for truth. The horrible accounts of governmental lies and deceptions were eating away at his joy and peace that Christ offers all believers. His focus had shifted from delight in God’s promises to delight in uncovering the latest business scam or pack of lies from Washington D.C.

            As He always does, the Holy Spirit brought Teddy back to his First Love to bathe again in God’s precious truths and eternal promises of redemption. Nowadays, when he does begin overturning those rocks to peer at the ugliness beneath, Teddy is quick to let them lie, reminding himself of God’s magnificent love found in His Living Word, the Bible.


  • Isaiah 8:11-14  The LORD has said to me in the strongest terms: “Do not be afraid that some plan conceived behind closed doors will be the end of you. Do not fear anything except the LORD Almighty. He alone is the Holy One. If you fear him, you need fear nothing else. He will keep you safe.”
  • Isaiah 41:10   Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
  • Prov. 3:5-6  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.
  • Psalm 9:10  All those who know your mercy, Lord, will count on you for help. For you have never yet forsaken those who trust in you.
  • Psalm 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
  • John 14:1-3  Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.
  • Romans 9:33   God warned them of this in the Scriptures when he said, “I have put a Rock in the path of the Jews, and many will stumble over him (Jesus). Those who believe in him will never be disappointed.
  • Romans 15:13  I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Rev. 21:5   And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.”


After a great magic trick people usually say, “How did he do that?” Even more so, by placing our faith in Jesus Christ we can say: “How did He give me such peace?” “How did He change my thinking like that?” And “How did He cleanse me from ALL my sins?”


He did all these things and more because we have trusted in Him.

Faith. . .It Requires Exercise

  “If it is alone and includes no actions, then (faith) is dead.” James 2:17

Tim’s life was a wreck after two marriages and a handful of job failures. Sitting alone at a local tavern, finishing his third beer, he wondered if there was any point in continuing his life. He was spiraling down into the abyss of despair, fueled by loneliness and discouragement. “What’s the point?”, he muttered to himself.

Just then he felt the familiar buzz of his cellphone in his pocket. “Bill calling” it announced. He paused a moment and decided to answer. That act changed his life.
“Hey Bill,” Tim said, as he headed for the door to talk in privacy. “It’s been awhile.”
“Tim, God put it on my heart to give you a call. I know that sounds crazy but it’s true. I have been fighting this urge for several hours but I’ve got to give you a message from the Lord!”
Although not drunk, Tim was a little foggy and deep within his pool of pity. “What are you talking about, Bill? This is crazy.”
“I know it sounds crazy, Tim, but I have a message from God for you and I have to tell you. But I’ve got to tell you in person. Let’s meet at your apartment in twenty minutes.”

Tim had barely kicked off his shoes and put on a pot of coffee when the doorbell chimed. A few minutes later, warmed by coffee, he and Bill sat on the couch.
“I’m not a guy who goes around telling people, ‘Thus sayeth the Lord,’ Tim. But I heard God speaking to me and it was for you. I have to tell you what He said. What you do with it is up to you.

So here goes: ‘I love you, Tim. I have always loved you. You are not a failure, you’ve simply made some bad choices along the way. The reason you are confused about your life is that you have not walked in faith. Just like a body needs exercise to make the muscles strong, so your faith needs exercise for strength.

‘Your joy will return as you practice living your faith. Faith by itself is dead. But don’t worry, Jesus is the author and perfecter of faith and we will encourage you along the way. You have been born again, Tim. Now walk in that faith.”
Tim’s life was changed forever by his faithful friend’s obedience to God. He dusted off his Bible and returned to fellowship groups and Bible studies, strengthening his faith, walking in forgiveness and the power of God.

Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Through their faith, the people in days of old earned a good reputation. By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.

James 1:5-8 If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.

James 2:14-26 My friends, what good is it for one of you to say that you have faith if your actions do not prove it? Can that faith save you? Suppose there are brothers or sisters who need clothes and don’t have enough to eat. What good is there in your saying to them, “God bless you! Keep warm and eat well!”—if you don’t give them the necessities of life? So it is with faith: if it is alone and includes no actions, then it is dead.
But someone will say, “One person has faith, another has actions.” My answer is, “Show me how anyone can have faith without actions. I will show you my faith by my actions.” Do you believe that there is only one God? Good! The demons also believe—and tremble with fear. You fool! Do you want to be shown that faith without actions is useless? How was our ancestor Abraham put right with God? It was through his actions, when he offered his son Isaac on the altar. 

Can’t you see? His faith and his actions worked together; his faith was made perfect through his actions. And the scripture came true that said, “Abraham believed God, and because of his faith God accepted him as righteous.” And so Abraham was called God’s friend. You see, then, that it is by our actions that we are put right with God, and not by our faith alone.  

It was the same with the prostitute Rahab. She was put right with God through her actions, by welcoming the Israelite spies and helping them to escape by a different road.  So then, as the body without the spirit is dead, also faith without actions is dead.

2 Peter 1:3-11  By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.

The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.

So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Faith in Christ as Savior and the works of faith after salvation, are sometimes cause for confusion among Christians. Simply put, faith in Christ is initial belief in Jesus as Savior, with no external evidence.
The works of faith following conversion, are the natural outcroppings of good deeds brought about from the Holy Spirit within the believer. When a person experiences the love of Christ, part of their conversion is the desire to pass on that love in tangible ways to others.


Reaching Out

“The word of the Lord endures forever.” 1 Peter 1:25

As an athlete, Bob Hayes stood out for two reasons: his blazing speed and an uncanny ability to catch the football. But Bob had, what some coaches considered, a design flaw. He was pigeon-toed and knock-kneed!

Until he entered college, his coaches didn’t concern themselves with these apparent problems because Bob performed above all others on the track and football field. He trained hard. He had endurance as well as natural ability.

When he accepted a scholarship to Florida A&M University, the running coaches decided Bob needed help to correct his physical flaws. The result of their “help?” Bob’s sprint times got worse. Finally the coaches told Bob to ignore their suggestions and run naturally. The results were astounding.

While in college, Hayes was considered the world’s fastest man because of his multiple world records in the 60 yard, 100 yard, 220 yard and Olympic 100-meter dash. Hayes is the only man to win both an Olympic gold medal and a Super Bowl ring!Hayes’ endurance and dedication are well-known and easily seen.

And what of us believers? Are we dedicated to serving the Lord, showing love to the world, taking the position as a servant? Is following Jesus the most important thing in our lives or are we satisfied with a little bit here and there, knowing we will be dancing in heaven some day?

Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

1 Cor. 9:24-27 Surely you know that many runners take part in a race, but only one of them wins the prize. Run, then, in such a way as to win the prize. Every athlete in training submits to strict discipline, in order to be crowned with a wreath that will not last; but we do it for one that will last forever. That is why I run straight for the finish line; that is why I am like a boxer who does not waste his punches. I harden my body with blows and bring it under complete control, to keep myself from being disqualified after having called others to the contest.

Phil. 3:10-14 My goal is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, assuming that I will somehow reach the resurrection from among the dead.Not that I have already reached the goal or am already fully mature, but I make every effort to take hold of it because I also have been taken hold of by Christ Jesus. Brothers, I do not consider myself to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.

James 1:23-25 Do not deceive yourselves by just listening to his word; instead, put it into practice. If you listen to the word, but do not put it into practice you are like people who look in a mirror and see themselves as they are. They take a good look at themselves and then go away and at once forget what they look like. But if you look closely into the perfect law that sets people free, and keep on paying attention to it and do not simply listen and then forget it, but put it into practice—you will be blessed by God in what you do.

Are we willing to contend for the imperishable crown of life? We are victors and it is important that we live as though we are. After all, God has given us every weapon necessary to defeat the enemy. Victory is not walking through life untouched, it is walking through life’s greatest challenges with Christ, sustained by our faith.

What Is New Testament Power?


“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you…” Acts 1:8

A major stumbling block to many believers is that we continue to live each day as though God were a future aspect of our lives, a twice-a-week experience or a source of comfort when circumstances become overwhelming. Someone to think about for a few minutes in the morning, or just before bed at night.
God has prepared the perfect scenario with the perfect tools for His followers to be equipped and strengthened to share their faith, fight the devil’s strategies successfully, and shine the light of Jesus Christ in a dark world.

Lk9:1 “Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit…”
Lk4:14 “He (Jesus) gave them power and authority to drive out demons and cure diseases…”
Lk10:19 “I have given you authority…to overcome all the power of the enemy…”
John 14:16 He will give you another helper that He may be with you forever…the Spirit of truth…He abides with you and will be in you.
This is a promise from Jesus. He has provided a helper who will be with us forever. Any time, night or day. In any situation, no matter what the circumstance, He is with us as our helper. A special gift of God to all who believe. Continue reading “What Is New Testament Power?”
