In the account of the call of Nathaniel in John 1:45-49, we see a generous outworking of the depth of access that Jesus had to life and the scroll that was written concerning the life of men. One crucial thing is, men that have made a habit of praying the scripture and beholding the Lord or waiting in His presence live on a deeper level of experience with the Lord. He says, “You will bear fruit.” Fruit-bearing in the New Testament is two-fold. There is an INWARD FRUIT-BEARING: growing in love, in......
The best posture every believer should sustain is on his kneels before the Monarch of the universe – an expression of reverence and submission to His Government through the agency of prayer.

A man that kneels most is a picture of a man’s persistence & consistency in the place of prayer. That is the best form of standing.

With the jawbone of a donkey, Samson brought down a thousand Philistines, and with just a sling and a stone, David killed their all-time champion.

The power lies in the message, not in the presentation. “Where the word of the king is, there Is power” (Eccl. 8:4). Moses was a man of stammering tongue, but he......
Main Text: John 14:16-17 “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seest him not, neither knowesth him; but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you and shall be in you”.
