Between trapezes

Between trapezes

The authentic Christian life is a life between trapezes. God gives you a job, a lover, a friend, a place to live and you swing awhile. And then God swings you a new trapeze. We all perceive change as loss but Jesus says TRUST ME. And the only way I can grab the next trapeze is to let go of the one I'm on and be in midair for a while.

Healing our Brokenness

“God made us with physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. And the more we study Scripture, the more we see He is concerned with all of our needs. He fed the hungry, healed the sick, and freed those in spiritual bondage. God also knows exactly what your need is today. He specifically knows the touch you need from Him. He replaces what you have lost with His care, His love, and with Himself.”

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

As you see the day approaching…

A dear friend of mine said recently, “I pay no attention to world affairs.”

Hearing this, I wanted to sink my face into my hands and weep. Wake up, sleepers!  Do you know what a critical hour this is?  Can you not see world events unfolding just as the Bible has foretold?  

You must do this, because you know that the time has come for you to wake up from your sleep. For the moment when we will be saved is closer now than it was when we first believed.  Romans 13:11

The Importance of Bible Prophecy

Where has God declared the end from the beginning? He has told it clearly on the pages of the Holy Scriptures. Holy men of God, guided by the Holy Spirit, wrote of great world events centuries before they were to come to pass.

Since it is inherent in the heart of man to know the future, why should he not examine the prophetic Scriptures with an unbiased mind? The magicians, sorcerers, astrologers, diviners, enchanters and necromancers have all failed to predict accurately things of the future. Even today there are multiplied thousands who pay money to listen to palm readers, teacup readers and fortune telling by varied methods, all because of a deep desire to know the future. I believe that such a desire is present in man because he has a future. The nations of the earth have a future, and God has a plan for the future. 

In spite of all the fanatics, date-setters, and foolish and false teachers, no legitimate reason can be offered for anyone refusing to study the prophetic Scriptures.

~ Rev. Lehman Strauss
