God Almighty, The God Of Faith

“God is a Faith God. We are a Faith Family.

We are all born by Faith. We live by Faith.

By Faith we live, breathe, and have our being in Christ.

If there are no Miracles, then there is no reason for Faith.

If there are no Miracles, God can’t answer prayer, because He can’t answer prayer of any character that is not a Miracle.”

Excerpt From “In His Presence” By E. W. Kenyon

The Spoken Word- The New Audio Bible From OliveTree

The new audio Bible formats from OliveTree.com are fantastic. At VWC.jp, we read the Word every day. However, it’s not always easy as we get tired or distracted and sometimes can have a hard time concentrating on what we are reading. That can make it difficult to soak in what we need to refresh spiritually.

The new audio Bibles are something Olivetree.com is selling. So even if you already bought the New King James Version Bible translation, you’re still going to need to buy the audio version separately. From our experience, worth the $20+ dollars. With the audio Bible you get

  • The app reading the translation you have out loud to you while displaying the text.
  • Something you can just listen to when you’re tired or don’t have free hands (such as driving)
  • You can still highlight, book mark and make other notes on your audio version just like the written translations of the Bible you already have on your OliveTree.com Bible study app.

Great new idea for how to keep yourself strong spiritually through hearing the Word.

PS if you can’t afford to pay for an audio Bible, there is one other option we know of. For the iPhone you can find it here. It’s called the Youversion Bible App.

Once You Forgive, Quit Talking about it

Proverbs 17:9 (NLT)

Love prospers when a fault is forgiven,

but dwelling on it separates close friends.

It is important to quit talking about past things that someone did to you. If you forgave them, don’t bring it up every time something you don’t like happens.

With forgiveness, the statute of limitations is the minute you forgive. You cannot keep talking about what happened last year, last week, or even yesterday. Forgiveness is YOUR decision, whether the person you forgave asked for it or not. The condition of your soul (mind, will, and emotions) is up to you.

Preaching Peace With A Sword

And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near.

Ephesians 2:17 (NKJV)

The good news that Jesus died and resurrected from the dead to bring us eternal life is undeniable. We teach peace but it comes through a spiritual sword. That sword is the word of God and it is living and active (Hebrews 4:12).

The Holy Spirit speaks through the Word of God.
