Oh, give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!

Talk of all His wondrous works!
10Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
11Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face evermore! 1 Chronicles 16:8–11 (NKJV)

Time For The Trumpets?

Time For The Trumpets?
The Bible has much to say about trumpets. They were warning signs of impending danger regarding an approaching enemy. Today we are more familiar with sirens that warn of us of some distinct danger such an approaching thunderstorm or even a tornado. Not all of the warnings we hear materialize, but some of them do. If we are wise, we do our best to heed the sounding sirens. Injuries and death occur sometimes because warnings are not heeded. 
The warnings and sirens we hear are the best efforts of man to protect us. We should be thankful for them even though not all of them bring about what was warned of. 
The trumpets of God, however, are always fulfilled. They are not given in vain. What God has said He will do, He will most certainly do!

Do Christians Have Enemies?

Dr. Walter Olsen

Do Christians have enemies? By Christian I mean one who is truly born again by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. The answer is yes, Christians have enemies. The enemies of Christian are those who do evil, those who practice unrighteousness. King David made this clear when he said, “Those who render evil for good, they are my adversaries, because I follow what is good” (Psa.38:20). In today’s world especially, those who seek to do good and live righteously are often mocked and persecuted by those who live unrighteous lives.
