Going After the Heart of God
by Ed Newton on May 25th, 2023
“My soul clings to you your right hand upholds me.” – Psalm 63:8  How do you know what God wants for your life? In the same way you know what your best friend, your wife, or your child wants; you spend time with Him. The more time you spend with God, the more you learn about His heart. What God wants is for us to be more like Jesus. And as our heart becomes more like Jesus, that character pours ou...  Read More
The Truth...Doesn’t Hurt
by Ed Newton on March 17th, 2023
“Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but those who act faithfully are His delight.” - Proverbs 12:22  Have you ever heard the phrase, “The truth hurts?” While this can be true, I’d argue the truth doesn’t least not as bad as the lie, especially after it has been uncovered. If you read the Bible, it won’t take long for you to find out that God hates a liar.  Proverbs 12:22 says, “L...  Read More

And you don’t just have any ...  Read More
Fully Known
by Ed Newton on November 21st, 2022

All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.” - 1 Corinthians 13:12 Did you know that God fully knows you? That’s right. He knows everything about you. That is a big statement. It might seem o...  Read More
An Illusion of Time
by Ed Newton on October 7th, 2022
“Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.” - Proverbs 27:1   One day, Satan called his three highest-ranking demons to a meeting. He said, “I need a strategy to distract and disorient people away from God. I want people to get away from God. What strategy and tactic can I use?"  So the first demon came up and said, “What if we told everyone that the Bible isn’t real?”...  Read More

by Ministry Support on June 2nd, 2022
“You rejoice in this, though now for a short time you have had to struggle in various trials so that the genuineness of your faith—more valuable than gold, which perishes though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:6-7).Making weaponry and tools by hand is a fine art, and it would have been a much-needed service back in Jesus’ time. A...  Read More
