What a better way to take on the New Year than by receiving a new heart and spirit in Christ? In the last part of this little mini-blog-series (Two Hearts), I talked about the two different states of heart: the heart of stone and the heart of flesh. The heart is much more than a blood-pumping organ, it is endowed with spiritual significance. As I said, it is the capsule of our personalities, the content of our consciousness, and it is the state of our mind and being. It is the crux of our spirituality. Because whatever is within our heart flows outwardly, either affecting or infecting every aspect of our lives. Continue reading “The Hardening of the Heart”
Mainstream science would have you believe that the heart’s main function is to pump blood. However, one of many scientific truths in the Bible tells us the heart is involved in thought, emotion, and personality.
According to the TODAY Show, “Psychologists once maintained that emotions were purely mental expressions generated by the brain alone. We now know that this is not true — emotions have as much to do with the heart and body as they do with the brain… we now know that the heart sends more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. And the brain responds to the heart in many important ways.”
So what does the Bible have to say about our hearts? And why is it so important? Continue reading “Two Hearts”
Why do bad things happen to good people? We ask ourselves that constantly. Storm clouds roll in and the skies darken. Things seem bleak. What do we do? Where do we run? What is going to happen now? We claw at any morsel of reassurance. I’m here to tell you, no matter who you are, bad things happen to you. It’s a part of life. But there is hope. Continue reading “Hurricane”
Hell is a place of separation, darkness, and torment. We established that in Part 2 of this series. We also examined why such a horrible place would even need to exist in the first place in Part 1. If you have not read the previous parts, please do so before continuing. In this particular installment of my hell interpretation series, I am going to be talking about what has not yet been answered in the previous additions. I talked about the why and the what of hell. Now I will talk about the who. Most specifically, I will talk about how we can avoid hell. Continue reading “Hell: Part 3”
In the first article of this series I discussed the logic supporting hell’s existence, as well as what scripture says about its reality. In this second installment I will write about what hell is actually like, what scripture says about it, as well as some of the things we can assume lies there. As I said before, this article contains sensitive material. Moreover, this particular entry may disturb you. Continue reading “Hell: Part 2”
Hell is a big deal. It is one of, if not the most sensitive topic discussed in the Bible. The idea of an entire world devoted to nothing but pain and torment is at best unthinkable to us mere humans, but it is something we need to understand. Continue reading “Hell: Part 1”
Love is something we do not understand. Or at least, we get the jist of it, but we do not comprehend its deepness or its intricacy–whilst staying simple and soothing.
This article is going to be a bit different than the usual. While it provides a lesson, I find it impossible not to include bits of my own testimony. I will talk about the actual sacrificial love of Christ, and how this love is unconditional, deep, and how it can be realized. Continue reading “Barabbas”
Resurrection is something under a lot of debate in the Christian world today. While Christians should universally believe that Christ rose from the dead, we often differ on the next instance of it in the Bible: when it pertains to us. Some believe that resurrection happens during a Pre-Tribulation Rapture, others believe it happens during the Second Coming, and some, I have found, don’t even believe in it at all. I intend to do two things with this article: 1) give you a deeper understanding of what resurrection actually is, and 2) paint a more colorful picture of how it affects us.

Among the things I write about, by far my favorite subjects are those that deal with spiritual feelings. The past few weeks have been extremely transformative for me, spiritually. Not only transformative, but incomprehensibly revealing. God has showed me issues I was never aware of before, and has given me bite-size answers at such a slow, steady pace that it has been easy for me to digest.
Among those things, God has showed me that several of my previous articles have led up to this one. I have written about looking back on our past life, experiencing spiritual dryness, and having a trapped spirit. These revelations have led me to a lesson I personally consider to be absolutely amazing, at least in my own walk with God. So now I will write about being spiritually “Frozen”.
