THE TWO TREES OF KNOWLEDGE In the Old Testament, God’s “Spirit” rested over the Ark of the Covenant; leading Israel out of the wilderness into God’s promises. The Ark of the Covenant symbolizes the heart of a believer.

I will be their…

Romans 13:8-10 (LBP) If you are loving others you are measuring up to the standard that God’s law has always been seeking . . . . If you really love, you will measure up to the whole law without even thinking about it. Jesus saves us, the Holy Spirit fills us, the Father’s love frees us. Romans 5:5 (CEV)…

THE TWO LAWS OF THE BIBLE Legalism abuses God’s law. It says, “Do this or God won’t love you.” A legalist’s favorite verse is: Psalm 7:11 (CEB) God is a righteous judge, a God who is angry at evil every single day. The legalist uses “God’s law” to manipulate and control others for personal gain. The verse they don’t want you to know is: Romans 3:23-25 (NLT) All have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet now God…

The Prayer Advantage

THE PRAYER ADVANTAGE James 5:16 (NLB) Prayer from the heart [spirit] of a man right with God has much power. . . . makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. – AMP John 16:7 (AMP) I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor, Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy…
