The Bible a Perfect Guide

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105.

We all need a guide through the many strait places in life as much as the sailor needs a pilot over the sandy bar or up the rocky river, and where is this guide to be found? We point you ... to the Bible.

God, has given us His Word as a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Its teachings have a vital bearing on our prosperity in all the relations of life....

The Bible is the great standard of right and wrong, clearly defining sin and holiness. Its living principles, running through our lives like threads of gold, are our only safeguard in trial and temptation. The Bible is a chart, showing us the waymarks of truth. Those who are acquainted with this chart will be enabled to tread with certainty in the path of duty, wherever they may be called to go.

When faith in God’s Word is lost, the soul has no guide, no safeguard. The youth are drawn into paths which lead away from God and from everlasting life.

To this cause may in great degree be attributed the widespread iniquity in our world today. When the Word of God is set aside, its power to restrain the evil passions of the natural heart is rejected.

When God’s Word is made the man of our counsel, when we search the Scriptures for light, heavenly angels come near to impress the mind and to enlighten the understanding, so that it can be truly said, “The entrance of thy words giveth light....” Psalm 119:130.

The Word of God is light and truth.... It is able to guide every step of the way to the city of God.

Jesus Last Love Letter: A Revival for Children, Youth, and Adults

Jesus Last Love Letter: A Revival for Children, Youth, and Adults

Children, youth, and adults all desperately need to know that Someone loves them and will never leave them in this turbulent time! However, He warned us that prior to His coming, “most people’s love will grow cold.” We see that this prophecy is being fulfilled now! Families are splintering under strain and stress, communities are polarizing, and in our preoccupation to survive these times, we often become too rushed for the One who loves us the most--God. Yet, nearly two thousand years ago, Jesus prescribed a remedy for “love grown cold” in His message to Laodicea, and it has special relevance right now! His message in Revelation 3:14-22 is His last love letter to His people of all ages before He returns. (This is a leadership tool for multi-generation revival!)
