Giving & Receiving

Does the Bible Teach “Seed Faith” or “Seed Offering” Giving?

By Danny Parkes

Does the Bible teach that if we give money to the church, we will get money in return? The answer is, not really — although there is a connection between being generous in your attitude and being blessed in your life. Proverbs 11:25 says, “The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will…

Will God Provide?

By Danny Parkes

Sometimes we get so pre-occupied with whether or not God will provide for our needs, that in our obsession with our own need, we miss the real picture. Jesus Christ made it clear when he said, plainly, and simply, in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will…

The Roots of Poverty

By Danny Parkes

I was listening to the radio the other day, when I heard about a noble plan of some organization to eradicate poverty in the world by some certain year. A noble thought, to be sure. However, if you look at the Scriptures, you’ll see that Jesus made this interesting comment: “The poor you will have…

Blessing in the River

By Danny Parkes

Some people see analogies between the physical world that we live in, and spiritual realities.

So analogies have their limits. But…

My daughter has been asking for years for a dog. I would say something like, “Elizabeth, how’s it going? Is there anything you would like?” And she would answer, “I want a dog!” She answered me that for quite a long time. And I encouraged her to do that, too, based on a certain passage…

By Danny Parkes

The experience I am about to relay to you is quite unusual, indeed. But on a particular morning, I got into work, and attempted to sit down at my chair. When I did so, however, there was a distinct grieving in my spirit to the point of almost feeling like I was going to be…

God’s Word is True, Chapter 1: The Encounter Before I give this testimony, I would like to say, I am a Christian. And the one who deserves all the credit for this testimony is Jesus, the God of the Christians — and not only the God of the Christians, but the God of the whole…

God Really Does Answer

By Ellen Harlow

I bought a mobile home 10 years ago after going through a period in my life of being homeless. The Lord really supplied my needs even though at the time it was hard for me to see His intervention. He brought people into my life that allowed me to stay in their home until I…

The Hug

By Danny Parkes

I walked into the chiropractor’s office. It was like any other visit. Almost. There were many people there that filled the room. I’d say there were 30 or 40 of them in all. Packed. As usual. This chiropractor was busy! Why? Well, I am convinced it had something to do with his faith! Scripture all…
