Never Not With God

by Tyler Dirks

Luke 10:21-24 Jesus rejoices. About what? Jesus says, “Thank you Father, for hiding true blessedness from “THE WISE” and “THE UNDERSTANDING,” and instead revealing true blessedness to LITTLE CHILDREN.” What is true blessedness? True blessedness is – – – > Knowing the Son of God. Not knowing about the Son of God; but KNOWING the […]

No Escaping Neediness

by Tyler Dirks

I guess you could say we were experiencing “tough times.” I longed to be back home, and I couldn’t look at Haddie without tearing up. Haddie’s mannerisms reminded me of my uncle, and the way she laughed sounded just like my aunt. I felt a strange mixture of happiness and helplessness; I was thankful for […]

Protest

Picture a man who has just been forced to venerate his enemy in the presence of an entire city. Subsequently, this man sulks home (scorning the shame of honoring the man he hates), only to be told by his wife and his friends that he is inescapably cursed, and will soon fall at the hands […]

Resurrection of wealthy family’s son. Remedied the death stew. Food multiplication. Curing an extremely high-ranking, and oppressive, Syrian military official of leprosy. […]

Primary Highlights & Partial Summation of the Old Testament

Genesis [Joe: What you meant for evil against me, God meant for good; to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today – Gen. 50:20 …For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. […]

Concerned For My Friend

by Tyler Dirks

Pray for my friend Eli y’all. Eli has made some enemies (powerful enemies); and as such, he spends a lot of time avoiding detection. He takes a lot of excursions into the wilderness, and claims that God has specifically commanded him to take these retreats; and what’s really crazy is that he claims God has […]
