Pastor Dwain Satan's Plans Against the Church 0 Comments

(You can read the earlier entries in this series here.) It’s possible to live in the same building as another person and not share life with them.  It’s likewise possible to attend a local church and not share your life with those who also share that local congregational gathering.  This, too, is one of Satan’s diabolical plans: to isolate us …

(This is part of a series. To read part one, click here.) Satan hates enabled, grace-filled, fully-functioning bodies. He is working to bring disablement to the body of Christ as well.

Someone Needs You

Pastor Dwain The Church of Love

Matthew 13:20-21 – The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy.  But since they have no root, they last only a short time.

You are a new creation. Behold, the old is gone and the new has come! This is true whether you are experiencing it or not.

Raised Up as a New Creation

Pastor Dwain Raised to Life

Paul states very clearly that the believers in Jesus are raised up together with Christ, but he makes this statement in the context of the cross. It is there that he also states that we have been buried with him and that the body of sin has it been put to death. This is found in Romans chapter 6. If …
