I recently heard someone say that Satan desires to destroy the innocence of children. This reality weighs on my soul and more so now that I have three small children of my own. I investigated what Jesus said about this which lead to this rich discovery.

This is the last part in a five-part series on the first several chapters of 1 Samuel. I thought I knew how this was going to end, but the Holy Spirit concluded this study with an interesting revelation that confirmed the original purpose of True Vine Life. Here the success of Samuel's judgeship reveals what is needed for the faithful remnant church to come. 

The first several chapters of 1 Samuel provide a relevant picture of the Western church in the year 2016. In part 3 of this series, we learn the real reason for Israel's catastrophic loss of the ark of the covenant. I then explain what the faithful remnant needs to do to escape the same fate, and somehow, Lynyrd Skynyrd finds its way in here. 

The first several chapters of 1 Samuel provide a relevant picture of the Western church in the year 2016. These Scriptures also reveal an important pattern of how God brings positive change amongst His people in any era. As we continue in this series we see the devastating consequences that come to God's people when He is not first in their lives. There is an important lesson here for the faithful remnant.

In discussions on the topic of salvation, the question is sometimes raised: “What happened to the Gentiles who lived before Jesus Christ or everyone who lived after, who died having never heard the gospel?” Here is my answer to that question.

The first chapter of Daniel reveals a pattern for preparing one's life to glorify God. This teaching examines the underlying components of (1) resolving to obey God, (2) acting by faith, and then (3) receiving Spiritual gifts from God. Daniel's experience in Babylon also provides a great deal of insight for parents raising Christian youth today. This is part 1 of a 2 part segment. 

The night before Jesus went to the cross, He explained to His disciples three important things that the soon-coming Spirit of truth would do in their lives. As we examine each, we will see how the Spirit reveals God's pathway for each of our lives.

Do you think that if Jesus told His disciples something six times in one night that it was important? You bet. As we examine these six times we discover God's simple design for prayer.
