‘…BECAUSE HE MARRIED THE DAUGHTER OF AHAB…’ (Ladies Only)

Sisters, you are powerful.

And I am not saying it in that bra-burning, fist-clenched, arm-raised, wild-haired, hardened-feminist kind of way.

No. I’m saying it with much fear and trembling.

Sisters, you are powerful.

A TALE OF TWO FAMILIES

The Ark had been…captured?
The ARK ‘OF THE LORD’ had been captured?!
No one could believe it.
The heart of everyone who heard it turned to stone.
Eli fell from his seat backwards – and broke his neck.
His daughter-in-law went into premature labour. Instantly.

DO YOU ‘REALLY’ BELIEVE IN MIRACLES?

I’m not only referring to getting a job you have been praying for, money coming into your bank account, or protection from an accident.

HOW TO KNOW A GOOD MAN(1) (Ladies Only Series)

I love the Bible for two reasons:

(1) It Is Very Relevant
More and more people are realizing that – from money to marriage to business to sex to raising children to the workplace – the Bible really gives solid advice that is very relevant in our present world.

(2) It Is Very Real
Humans have a tendency to idolize or demonize people – painting those they love as complete saints or angels, and blackening those they dislike as total devils.

LADIES ONLY: The Making Of Eve (2)

(continued from last post)
Now, the rib was straightened and stretched, but it was too thin. Too narrow – compared to the man. So, what did God do next?

(3) He EXPANDED her…

BOOTCAMP PURITY (2) – Generational Purity.

God is a God of generations. Transfers. Flows. Lineages.
He rarely does anything that stops with an individual, group or nation.
He thinks continuity.
He is a long-term God.

One day, I attended a JCCF meeting on campus (that’s Joint Christian Campus Fellowship – the umbrella body of all Christian fellowships on campus)…
