by Thomas Bass | Les Feldick https://youtu.be/ZWLN9kbMRZs It’s good to start another lesson, and we always like to emphasize that this is an informal Bible study; we don’t claim to have all the answers. We don’t claim to be right and everybody else is wrong. All we like to do is get people involved in … Continue reading Review – Escaping Remnants
Oh how it thrills our heart to hear from those of you who have gotten a new enthusiasm for the Word of God, and how you are now able to study it by yourself, or with your family. Remember the only reason I teach is to help people get interested in this Book. As you … Continue reading The Body of Christ Removed from the Earth (2)
I guess as we begin that I should remind you that Paul is writing to a group of believers now with whom he had only spent somewhere between 3 and 4 weeks. He calls it 3 Sabbaths which could be 21 days or on up to 26 or 27, but nevertheless it was a very … Continue reading The Body of Christ Removed from the Earth
"Strong in faith." (Romans 4:20) Christian, take good care of thy faith; for recollect faith is the only way whereby thou canst obtain blessings. If we want blessings from God, nothing can fetch them down but faith. Prayer cannot draw down answers from God's throne except it be the earnest prayer of the man who … Continue reading But without faith how can I receive anything of the Lord?

The battle belongs to you, my God of Peace and Lord
In your love I rest, not in the might of flashing sword
Safe from the trial of distressful battle, my fears depart
Your embrace heals, consoles, all of my wounded heart
You are my strength, comfort, help, and shield
The battle won by trust in your love, as I yield
I rest in you, enjoying the comfort of your breast
Letting all my fears and anxiety go, while I rest
My confidence is in you for victory is sure
You give me vision and provision is assured
The guarantee in you comes in tranquil trust
No need for me to run, fret or frantically rush
You make me peaceful, comforted, whole and complete
Broken places healed, I’m soothed, filled full and replete
You are my rest, restoration, refreshment and health
My prosperity comes by faith and…

The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith [our ability to confidently trust in God and in His power].”Luke 17:5 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
There is a reason we need to humbly request the Lord to increase our faith.
The number one reason is because as we increase our faith (which means trust) in our Beloved we get to know Him ,love Him and worship Him more and more thereby getting ever closer to Him.
The number two reason is that when our faith increases so too does our confidence in the Lord whenever satan comes a knocking. Having confidence in the Lord terrifies satan and his minions. Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.
Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of…

For three days I wasn’t able to post anything because I had accidentally deleted this blog. I meant to delete an old, neglected blog, but for some reason this blog got deleted instead. If you click on that big ? encased in a blue circle on the bottom right of your screen, it will take you to the help section. You will see others asking how do they get their blog restored. The answer is you only can if you contact WordPress within 30 days and tell them it was a mistake. I thought about starting a new blog from scratch, but that means losing my followers. So I sent emails to WordPress support. It took 2 days for them to restore this blog.
During those 2 days I did a lot of reflecting. I thought about prayer and my own praying. Was I seeing answers? Was my heart right?…

How Deep The Father’s Love For Us
If a truth is unpopular, often it is a sign that it calls for our closer scrutiny of why it may be unpopular. Is it because it is not truth? Or, more importantly, is it because it causes a general discomfort in many? If it is discomforting, it begs our investigation into WHY do so many find it uncomfortable? Often we find that it is discomforting because so many prefer anything that makes them feel good over truth. Even if it is a false sense of well-being. The burgeoning drug/alcohol culture bears witness. -g.w
What does ‘Many are called but few are chosen’ in Matthew 22:14 mean?”
This statement is the conclusion to the Parable of the Wedding Feast. Jesus spoke this parable to show what the kingdom of heaven will be like when the end of the age comes. In the…

Due to the mainline churches of today increasingly becoming more prone to apostasy and heresy in their desire to be “relevant” in a changing society, I find it increasingly more fruitful to re-discover the words of mighty stalwarts from our Christian past. -g.w.
From the Letters of John Newton: Letter to a new Christian
March 18, 1767
You have one hard lesson to learn, that is–the evil of your own heart. You know something of it, but it is needful that you should know more; for the more we know of ourselves–the more we shall prize and love Jesus and His wondrous salvation.
The more you know Him–the better you will trust Him.
The more you trust Him–the better you will love Him.
The more you love Him–the better you will serve Him.
This is God’s way. He is teaching you these things, and I trust He…
