Don’t Judge Me! (ATP)

 Don’t Judge Me! (ATP) Question: I need some guidance on 2 Chronicles 7:13. The latter part states …”or send a plague/pestilence among my people…” This is confusing me because I thought He didn’t cause or create these things, or am I missing the message here? 2 Chronicles 7:13 “When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts…

Stressed & Annoyed (ATP)

Stressed & Annoyed (ATP) How do we deal with stress and annoyance at work?  Philippians 4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” First, if we’re dealing with stress and the temptation to be annoyed in the workplace, in the home, or in other places, we are…

Unsuspecting or On Guard?

Unsuspecting or On Guard? Ignorance is NOT bliss. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” In other words, God’s people are destroyed by ignorance, and really willful ignorance.  You can’t be a true Christian and choose not to seek the knowledge of God. Jesus said in John 8:31-32, “If you abide in My word, you…

It’s Time to Rise

It’s Time to Rise Christians, I’m talking to you, and to me. If there’s one thing this time of societal unrest and chaos has taught me, it’s that we have been too busy being distracted and too lazy as a body of Christ. I include myself in this.  Matthew 22:14 says, “For many are called, but few are chosen.” As I was…

Focus In Prayer (ATP)

Focus In Prayer (ATP) When you go to pray and just can’t, not because you’re mad or you don’t believe God will answer, but because you can’t focus, you try to pray but 2 seconds later you lose focus, something else enters your thoughts, or it’s just blank, is this a spiritual thing or mental thing? This is a good question, but…

Loving God’s Family

Loving God’s Family Galatians 6:10 (NKJV)Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, ESPECIALLY to those who are of the household of faith. The devil hates family because family is the creation out of the love and very heart of God. It’s no wonder he works overtime to destroy it. Think of society and all that’s been attacked. We…

Why Have You Forsaken Me? (ATP)

Why Have You Forsaken Me? (ATP) Why did Jesus say “my god why have you forsaken me?” Can you explain this and what it means? What a wonderful question this is. At first read, one might assume the Father wasn’t being very loving here, allowing His son to go through such trial. But when we look closer, we’ll see this from another…

Does Satan Go To Church? (ATP)

Does Satan Go To Church? (ATP) This week’s question is: You both say that the Holy Spirit is among us at church. Is satan there too, trying to distract people from hearing the Word or does he wait until we are out of service? We know 1 Peter 5:8 says he prowls around like a lion, but I guess I’m curious if…

Is There a Right Way To Spend Time With God? (ATP)

Is There a Right Way To Spend Time With God? (ATP) This week’s question is, “Is there a “right” way to spend time with God?” Instantly, I’m drawn to John 4:23-24, “…the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit,…

Faith Fix: Trial by God? (ATP)

Question: I know God will use trials for learning purposes and to help us grow, but does he create them? (As I write that, I feel that goes against who He is, but I’m asking anyway.) We know there are certain scriptures that give us this principle. Genesis 50:20 says, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant…
