12 Reasons It Pays To Be Generous

Written by Harold Herring.

There are just some things in life that you don’t or can’t understand with a natural mind.

For instance, I don’t really understand why a black and white cow can eat green grass give yellow butter and white milk.

There are things people in the world, and even some Christians, don’t or can’t understand about the things of God.  However, our lack of understanding doesn’t make them any less true.

Get ready. . .there is something God wants released into your life.

1 Corinthians 15:20-22 says:

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

I looked up the words “. . .in Christ shall all be made alive” in the Strong’s Concordance.

Who's Causing All The Trouble?

Written by Harold Herring.

There is one thing you can know with absolute certainty.

Behind every evil activity on planet earth. . .there is a single mastermind, Satan. . .the devil. . .the enemy. . .old slewfoot. . .the thief. . .the dude with the pitchfork. . .the one who’s going to live eternity in hell!

Regardless of what you call him. . .the devil is behind all and I do mean ALL the troubles of this world . . .terrorism. . .wars. . .crimes. . .murders. . .thefts. . .greed and deceitfulness just to name a few.

In Ephesians 2:2 CEV Paul is addressing those who found Christ and explains the devil’s role in their past and the influence he can still have on those who don’t obey God:

“You followed the ways of this world and obeyed the devil. He rules the world, and his spirit has power over everyone who doesn't obey God.”

7 Steps To Become A Kingdom Conqueror And A World Overcomer

Written by Harold Herring.

I have always been intrigued by Romans 8:37 which says:

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”

I decided to look up conqueror in the Strong’s Concordance.  It’s the Greek word hypernikaō(G5245) and it means:

“to be more than a conqueror, to gain a surpassing victory.”

I noticed that conqueror comes from the root word nikaō (knee cow o) (G3528) which is translated 24 out of 28 times as overcome.  So it became obvious to me that in order to become a Kingdom Conqueror you must first be a World Overcomer.

What does the Word have to say about being an Overcomer?

Keep Your Relationship Alive, Alert, And Responsive

The Lord dropped this sentence in my spirit:  “Marriage is very similar to a relationship with Me.”

As I was meditating on this sentence, three keys came to me:

1.      When you meet your spouse to be …it’s the beginning of a new and exciting adventure...  like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.  You can’t get enough of this other person … you hang on their every word and you are anxious to know all you can about them.

2.      After the courtship and wedding you settled down but all of a sudden … life happens.  The circumstances you face will either pull together or pull you apart.  You decide.
