The Seasons of Life

 

by Paul Benson

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up… Ecc 3:1-2

The Seasons Of Life

One of the things I like most about the Scriptures is they show us that many of the different aspects of earthly life are given to teach us about heavenly things. The relationship between a husband and his wife, as well as those with mother, father, sisters and brothers, all in one form or another speak of the way God desires to relate to mankind. In the same fashion, the many seasons of life – spring, summer, fall, and winter – infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old-age also speak to us of the different seasons in God’s dealings with us.

A Dream-Vision Where I Met Jesus!

A very realistic dream I had about dying and meeting Jesus. Has stayed in my mind for many years.

A Dream That Was Not JUST A Dream

I would like to share with you a dream that I had many years ago. It was so real that to this very day I could not say for sure that it was only a dream. Have you ever had a dream so realistic that you could remember all the details, even the emotions of it, years later? That’s how this experience has stayed with me; like the memory of an important day or event, that returns to your mind from time to time. Continue reading “A Dream-Vision Where I Met Jesus!”

Give me a hand, please?

Maybe you could help me with my research. I have been looking for years for answers to some questions the rapture theory raises in my mind. The problem is I cannot find any Bible verses that clearly teach these major facets of the rapture theory (of which I am assured are quite Scriptural). Continue reading “Some Rapture Questions”

Celebrity Minister Worship or Hey, I’m Up Here!

Are Christian ministers and entertainers getting a little more attention than they ought to? Ever wondered how God feels about such a thing?

 

Celebrity Christianity

by Paul Benson

Worshiping Celebrity Christian Speakers

There is an aspect of modern Christianity which has in recent years grown to the point of becoming quite unattractive. I am referring to the rising trend of ‘celebrity worship’ among followers of Christ. Celebrity ministers being worshiped instead of Jesus Christ. Many of today’s most popular ministers are being treated (and acting) more like deity than humble servants of Christ.

There have always been men and women of God who have stood a head and shoulders above the crowd. People who have been used of God in a remarkable way, and have gained the respect and admiration of the masses. And who among us as a believer does not have any favorite(s)? I have mine, and I am sure you do too. But, considering the Bible’s warnings against idolatry, shouldn’t this be a concern to be carefully pondered?

The Benefit of Embracing Truth

Truth carries promise of reward. We need to be sure we are not robbed of that reward by being turned aside to the erroneous teachings of man…

by Paul Benson

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom. Psalms51:6

As Christians everything we are in Jesus Christ, and everything we have from him, revolves around the truth; for he is the truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth; and the Word of God is the Word of Truth. The Bible is a book of promise; and those promises will all be fulfilled to those who embrace a steadfast faith in the one who spoke them forth. But our faith must not be misplaced; putting confidence in a falsehood or a lie will only lead to disappointment (or possibly destruction).

With all the amazing benefits realized from opening up and receiving God’s truth is it any wonder Satan would be so hard at work (Kill! Steal! Destroy!) trying to turn us aside to myths and fables promoted as ‘sound doctrine’? He obsessively wants to rob us any way he can. Continue reading “The Benefit of Embracing Truth”
