Is He alive? If Jesus Christ is alive, then we must look again at His life. He came to earth as an innocent child, but His return to earth will be as a Mighty Conquering King.

The resurrection of Christ from the dead is an accomplished fact of history. This fact powerfully proves Jesus is the Son of God: "Declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead" (Romans 1:4).

Because Christ is the Son of God, He is the only One without sin, who made the payment for our sins on the cross. Jesus Christ is now in heaven seated at the right hand of the Father. He is alive forevermore and willing and able to give life for all who will call on His name. "I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen" (Revelation 1:18).

Dear Friends, the Lord is always ready and willing to give you His strength, peace and hope. "...but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name" (John 20:31). Ask the Lord to forgive your sins and to come into your heart. Confess and receive Him as your Lord and Savior!


1. The God of Abraham is still our God. He hasn't changed!

2. The God who made the iron ax head to swim is still Almighty God.

3. The God who brought water from the rock is still the Great I Am.

4. The God who delivered Daniel from the lion's den is still full of power and might. He is the Everlasting God.

5. The God who healed people in the past is still King of Kings. He is our awesome Lord.

6. The same Lord God who said to Abraham, "I will be God to you and your descendants after you." He is Most High God.

7. The God who parted the sea to lead people across dry ground, who appeared for His children, is still our Faithful God. "For He is the living God, and steadfast forever; His kingdom shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end" (Daniel 6:26B).


I like the words from Exodus 2:23, "Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage. So God heard their groaning..." The rest is history...

As the people of Israel prayed and cried out to God, then the Lord made a grand appearance to Moses on the back side of the desert. As far as we know this was Moses's first encounter with God. It was here God initially revealed His holiness to Moses. As Moses became a great leader of God's people, he constantly reminded himself, the God he serves is holy.

 As God spoke to him, Moses removed his shoes as a mark of respect and also as a symbol of laying aside all pollutions from walking in sin and the world. We can also walk in righteousness and purity as we wait upon the Lord to"speed up the process of time" concerning our desires.

Moses had to wait until Pharoah and others who had sought his life died. "Go, return to Egypt: for all the men are dead who sought your life" (Exodus 4:19). As my late husband said, "Waiting on God is never wasted time!"
