"Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to dwell in." ~ Isaiah 58:12
“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.” (Matthew 12:35)

In this world, we live in a constant warfare: Personal, for our Families, for God’s Church, for our Civil governments. Everything is easily understood when we know and accept this fact. If we don’t know it, or refuse to accept it, then we put ourselves under the warning in the Scripture:

But there is one who has set himself against that Kingdom belonging to God, and tried to usurp its power. That one is satan, called in the Bible, the adversary of God. Thus, Jesus was equipping His followers with the understanding that we walk in a constant warfare in this earth.

We’re seeing this warfare over who will rule in civil government happen in a big way right now in Alabama. The race for U.S. Senate between Judge Roy Moore and Doug Jones is Continue reading →
