They held that the truthfulness of Christianity rested upon…

How to Know if a Person is a True ProphetI do not believe we should be looking for prophets today. However, for the sake of discussion, I will give three biblical tests of a true prophet. They are a good way to test prophets for any age or time.A true prophet never turns people away from the true God, even if their signs and wonders come true. This kind of prophet is sent to see…

Prophecy or PredictionWhat is the main difference between “Prophecy” and “Prediction”?The general purpose of prophecy and prediction is the same: to tell what will happen in the future. However, their source of authority for this information is very different. Prophecy relies on the authority of God-given information. True prophecy is therefore never wrong because it always carries the authority of God’s truth and character. On the other hand, the prediction is based on man’s ability…

I will start from the general definition of the terms and then get to your particular situation.The four terms you mention–vow, oath, swear, and pledge–are referring to three very different situations.

I have seen many people asking this question over and over again about going to Heaven with tattoos. Many people are asking to find out that if having tattoos can hinder them from coming to Christ. My answer is NO. Having tattoo does not hinder anyone from coming to Christ, because Christ did not give us restriction to those who can come to Him. Rev 22:17And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let…

Is Anything Too Hard For the Lord?Pastor Tommy WensilGen. 18:14 The eighteenth chapter of Genesis is power packed. It begins with an angelic visit to the home of Abraham. Two of Abrahams visitors were obviously angels and the third was none other than the Lord Jesus himself– before Bethlehem (Gen. 18:33; 19:1). The visit was a confirmation and reassurance that Abraham was going to be a father (Gen. 17:15-19; 18:10-14). Isaac was to be the…
