BIBLE STUDY BRANDON T. WARD NOVEMBER 24, 2009 The World That Was, The First Earth Age Today, many Christians are confounded by the age of the earth. Christians are taught the earth and all of creation is merely six-thousand years old. Yet, this thought is not logical, nor is it Biblical and I personally believe this teaching is one of the major reasons for unbelief in the world today. Christians themselves would agree, our Father created us as spiritual beings. So why are we walking around in a corruptible flesh… Read more The World That Was, The First Earth Age →
“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”(Psalm 90:12)Now, what that means is this: “Teach us, O Lord to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.” Do you want to make the rest of your life the best of your life? You allow Jesus Christ to be your Lord. Put Him first. Live every moment for Him, and He will take care of the rest.

Where do you think you are going (or yer goin’ for us rednecks at heart).? Honest question that can be asked of most of us. And many times the answer is.. “you can’t get there from here.” This is true on many a road trip where I was lost, or took what I thought was short cut. This is true for many a college graduate looking for a high paying job in Corporate America with a Masters degree in ‘Cartoon Art History’ with a minor in ‘Bagpiping’. Or being mountain climber… Read more You can’t get There from Here →
“I’m speaking for myself, not even on behalf of my family, but I love you just like anyone else,” Brandt Jean said, in part. “I’m not going to say I hope you rot and die.” There were also remarkable shows of forgiveness. The most poignant moment of the day came when Jean’s 18-year-old brother, Brandt Jean, forgave Guyger for killing his older brother, who Guyger shot Sept. 6, 2018, after going to his apartment by mistake and believing him to be an intruder in her home one floor… Read more I Forgive You →
Mark 9:28-29 28 And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out?29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

These men were concerned about their spiritual failure, and they should have been! The answer Jesus gave them is both simple and telling. His answer is… Read more THE LESSONS OF SPIRITUAL POWER – Mark 9:28-29 →

If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.’ But the people answered him not a word.” To falter between 2 opinions literally means, “to limp along on or between 2 twigs.” Elijah’s challenge today is still uncomfortable but awesome because it speaks so clearly to the church around the world. So many are trying to play both sides of the fence, keeping a foot in… Read more How Long Will You Falter Between Two Opinions →
