The Lessons of Jacob Marley

THE LESSONS OF JACOB MARLEY 1. “I wear the chains I forged in life.” What we do here, determines our position there! Hebrews 9:27 (NET) People are appointed to die once, and then to face judgment.

Christ The Healer Part 2

THE SIN/SICKNESS CONNECTION The Bible shows that there can often be a cause-and-effect relationship between sin and sickness. Psalms 107:17-20 (CW) Our forefathers became sick through their sinful ways and suffered unduly [unnecessarily – in a way that is avoidable] because of their continual wicknedness.
