End Times

All growth, even Spiritual, is painful

The book is a great study tool and/or intro to topics in Spiritual growth.
Where the book really shines is in destroying the image of the dark night of the soul as a bad experience that’s only pain and nothing else. May does a great job of explaining how the dark night helps us and is essential for Spiritual growth.

Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Today I present another Christian book for The Christian Book Corner. Today’s book is The Dark Night of the Soul by Gerald May.

Today’s post is a proper review, since the book is a modern…


End Times

Why be afraid of The End of the world??

The only fear we should ever have is a healthy fear of the LORD, the one who can destroy both body and soul. Everything else can only kill our body, and then they can’t do any more, they can no longer harm us. They’re nothing to be afraid of.

Christian Book Review

A journey of self-discovery into the soul

It is no small pity, and should cause us no little shame, that, through our own fault, we do not understand ourselves, or know who we are. Would it not be a sign of great ignorance, my daughters, if a person were asked who he was, and could not say, and had no idea who his father or his mother was, or from what country he came?


End Times

Being judgmental and confrontational gets us nowhere

But we have to love and respect these people as we love ourselves no matter what. Which is also the only way we’ll ever have any success at shifting them away from their false beliefs. Lost people need Jesus, not hate. And Jesus is love, not hate, so protesting Mormons (etc., etc.) with hateful energy is not bringing Jesus to them.

Part 50 Recap Post

Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Today I present another End Times post.

In some recent posts, Part 79 and Part 80, I wrote about the topic of prophecy vs. false prophecy. This is a topic that’s especially relevant now, in the End Times. Jesus warned us there would be many false prophets at the End. It’s no coincidence we’re seeing many false prophets and prophecies these days.

It’s always worth revisiting this topic, even though I wrote about it as recently as Part 79 . …


End Times

Demons torment us, but our choices are always our own

(6) The LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why do you look so resentful? (7) If you do the right thing, won’t you be accepted? But if you don’t do the right thing, sin will be waiting at the door ready to strike! It will entice you, but you must rule over it.”

Genesis 4:6–7 (CEB)

Christian Book Review

An ancient, intimate personal testimony we can all relate to

I fell away from thee, O my God, and in my youth I wandered too far from thee, my true support. And I became to myself a wasteland.

The day of Jesus’ ultimate victory should not be a somber one

Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross is His one momentous act that set us free from sin. This sacrifice, as horrible and painful as it was, is what gives us our Salvation. So shouldn’t we celebrate on Good Friday too?

Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Time for another post.

Today is Good Friday, the day when we honor the sacrifice of our LORD and Savior and Love on the Cross. Today is the day when we reflect on His agonizing and humiliating death, a punishment reserved for the most heinous criminals. Certainly not a punishment for someone who healed the sick…


Stay focused on God, and keep going in the right direction

We don’t want to relapse into older sins and go back down a level. We want to stay at our new, higher level. Then, the next time we do a season of fasting and prayer, we’ll start new growth from this higher level and hopefully reach another level even higher than that!

Hello Readers, hope all’s well. Time for another post.

Lent is almost over now-this is the last week, and Easter is on Sunday. If you fasted or sacrificed something or not, I pray you enjoyed high-quality Spiritual growth during Lent. Lent is a great opportunity for rapid Spiritual…

The 5 worst places in the world to be a Christian

Every day, 13 Christians worldwide are killed because of their faith. Every day, 12 churches or Christian buildings are attacked. And every day, 12 Christians are unjustly arrested or imprisoned, and another 5 are abducted. So reports the 2021 World Watch List (WWL), the latest annual accounting from Open Doors of the top 50 countries where Christians are the most persecuted for following Jesus.
