They have been given to me as handfuls of nourishment from the Lord. And, like the diligent Ruth, I have benefited greatly from the generous kinsman redeemer. To complete the type, I have kneaded and baked these grains into barley loaves and am offering them to you, my brothers and sisters, to consume, savor and enjoy.

Proof of God
What is proof? It is factual evidence that establishes a truth or conclusion. Many say that the existence of God cannot be proven, just believed to exist. But that would mean there is no evidence at all. But is this true or just assumed?

Getting Past the Guard
Sometimes the concept of salvation can be hard to grasp. To put this procedure into perspective, a fictitious story is employed featuring a famous movie director.
The words of Jesus do not end in the Gospels, in fact, the most detailed prophecies regarding the age in which we live are found elsewhere. Are we nearing the end of this age? If so, how close are we? The time has come to hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
The Lying Prophet
Ezekiel was given command by God to portray the fate of Jerusalem by lying on his side and cutting his hair. But what did it all mean? How accurate were the pictures and to what were they referring?
One glorious quote from Jesus may encapsulate the entire theme of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. This theme is the key to finding salvation and eternal life.
Do all Roads lead to God?
There is a growing philosophy that whatever God a person worships, in reality they are all the same God manifested in different religious dogma; and that all roads lead to the same place.

The veil of the tabernacle separated the Holy Place of the temple from the Holy of Holies. Yet this curtain is more than a cloth barrier, it is a model of the suffering Messiah and that by His blood access is made into the very presence of the Most High.
Where Eagles Are
A cryptic statement spoken by Jesus may allude to the rapture of the church and present a caution to students not to take Bible study for granted with assumptions.
The person not well versed in the Bible loves to wield a verse or two into the face of Christians. One of these is “Judge not lest ye be judged”. To the unlearned, it is another way of saying, “mind your own business”. But what does that mean? Are believers really to never judge?

Is there any evidence for a pre-tribulation rapture? One word in the Greek text contains the answer.
