1. Revelation 4:1-11 - The Vision of the Throne Room of God
• What does John see in his vision of the throne room of God (vv. 2-6)?
• What is the significance of the creatures and elders worshiping around the throne (...
1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. 2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. 3 He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.s...
I grew up hearing that old adage, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me.”
What a lie! The kids in school always made fun of me because I was from the country. They made fun of me because I didn’t know how to speak English at the time. Sometimes, my nickname was “A racial slur.”--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/carlos-a-morales/message
Many times as Christians, we believe we should be “stronger than that.” Often from past teaching or from a lack of understanding, we are convinced that, as Christians, we should not come under the attack of depression or hopelessness. On the other hand, unbelievers sometimes feel as if they deserve to be in darkness because they don’t believe in a higher power or they are not “living right.” Sometimes we are embarrassed to ta...
I remember the night that I literally gave up. I had been doing much better with the depression and my wrecked life. I assumed I was okay, but I was not. That night, I lost the desire to fight. Curling down into a fetal position, I felt the darkness sinking in. Tears spilled over each eyelid and fiercely rolled down my cheeks and neck. I felt tight in my chest like something heavy was pressing against it. “It’s too much,” I thought...
Mental disorders are both common and disabling worldwide. They affect beliefs, emotions, identity, and relationships in such a way as to impact the very essence of the human experience. They are associated with stigma and prejudice, and they disproportionately affect those who are poor and those who belong to marginalized groups within society. Increasing attention has been given in recent years to the importance of spirituality fo...
One of the most often quoted and deeply treasured New Testament Bible verses is Romans 8:28: “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (Romans 8:28, NLT).--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/carlos-a-morales/message
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposi...

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1).
In this verse believers are commanded to “test the spirits to see whether they are from God.” This same command is echoed in other parts of Scripture as well. For example, in 1 Thessalonians 5:20-21 we find Paul exhorting the Christians to not “despise prophecies, but...

The most difficult thing about the Christian concept of the Trinity is that there is no way to
perfectly and completely understand it. The Trinity is a concept that is impossible for any human being
to fully understand, let alone explain. God is infinitely greater than we are; therefore, we should not
expect to be able to fully understand Him. The Bible teaches that the Father is God, that Jesus is God,
and that the Holy Spirit is ...
David and Samuel appointed 212 gatekeepers for “positions of trust” in guarding the temple of the Lord (1 Chronicles 9:22), and those so appointed rotated through week-long assignments (verse 25). Verses 26–29 speak of the four principal gatekeepers, “who . . . were entrusted with the responsibility for the rooms and treasuries in the house of God. They would spend the night stationed around the house of God, because they had to gu...
The Bible: God’s Words
Turn in your Bibles to 2 Timothy 3:16. Who can read it for us?
• What do you think that means, God-breathed (NIV)?
(The Greek word used here only occurs this one time in the scriptures. It is a compound word, God and breath, that means inspired.)
It’s important that we remember when we’re discussing the Bible, that it is God’s Words, not the words of man. For example, consider the people who wrote the Gospels...
