Make no covenant with Nahash

On Monday the 27th my wife was afflicted with some kind of eye problem in her right eye. It was like the onset of migraine which she does NOT suffer with. The only other time that she had a migraine…

Don’t be entangled again

There has been a change of Covenant between God and man which is not based upon our ability to obey His laws but upon His promise. When we start being badgered into whether or not we are holy or whether…
