Is Earth Visited by Celestial Beings?

There is the Bible view and the secular view. Hardly a day goes by without television shows on this subject. The interest in extraterrestrial life and contact is universal. Bible accounts of who visitors are and why they come are also very prolific. Jude 1:6 refers to angels who left their ‘first habitation’ (heaven) and came to earth….

Giving Precedes Getting

We are driven to satisfy our own needs and desires. That’s what is on our minds when we begin praying. But that is not what God advises us to do when we approach Him. Exodus 23:15: ‘No one will appear before me empty-handed.’ Oops! We came to get, not give. Psalms 100:4 says, ‘Come within…

The Psalmist David wrote in Psalms 26:13: “I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.” Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is the substance of…
