A Closer Walk

Attitude of the Righteous


Our ministry is to reach out to the world with the Good News of Jesus Christ and to help believers be equipped with a solid knowledge of the Word of God, the Bible, and be encouraged to apply it in every aspect of their daily lives. There are simple truths for these complex times to help people live in a way that brings real spiritual victory to them and more importantly, through the Lord Jesus Christ, glory to God our Father.

Judges 6:23
And the Lord said to (Gideon), 'Peace to you, do not fear; you shall not die.'

Because Israel had done what was evil in the sight of the Lord He gave them into the hands of the Midianites for seven years. {Jdg.6:1} And during that time the people of Israel were sorely oppressed and brought very low. Then the angel of the Lord came to Gideon calling him a valiant warrior—calling things which are not as though they are {Rom.4:17}—and followed by saying to him, 'Go in this your strength and deliver Israel from the hand of Midian. Have I not sent you?’

It became a bit of a complex and convoluted campaign, but it was successful as promised! And also as promised, Israel was freed from the oppression of Midian and Gideon did not die! Today you and I, all who have accepted the free gift of God—have truly been set free indeed. {Jn.8:36} And the only blood that was shed to accomplish that greatest gift, unlike the battles with the Midianites and virtually every other enemy Israel faced, was the blood of Jesus, the Lamb, on the cross of Calvary. Of course, that was the most precious blood ever spilled.

Now we can know and understand the fullness of what God spoke to Gideon. Jesus said to Martha, the sister of Lazarus, and to us, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” {Jn.11:25-26}

In the world people have often said that there are only two sure things in life; death and taxes. Well, I don't believe that taxes will go away any time soon, but death and life are another story! So very long ago while the Hebrews were in the wilderness between the bondage of Egypt and the land of the promise, God spoke and said 'I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life that you may live.' {Deut.30:19} It is still a choice today—Choose wisely!

“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whoever believes may in Him have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through Him.”

(John 3:14-17)


Paul's 2nd Letter to Timothy - Part 6
2 Timothy 1:12-14 — It comes down to guarding the treasure that the Lord has given us…entrusted us with. Greater than all of the treasures of the world and far more enduring, we are blessed to have been given it in abundance, to overflowing, so we have so much to share with others. We are to pour it out to saints and sinners alike!

Don't Give In, Don't Give Up
God spoke through the prophet Hosea to declare that He wants our 'steadfast' love. That is an unwavering, unshakeable, unchanging love - in response to His steadfast love for us. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
