“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything…
We can be confident and still be very wrong. That can be insignificant, like when you get lost because you were confident a destination is in one place when it’s in another and you didn’t check your directions. Or it can be more serious, like being confident you turned the power off to a circuit you’re…
Following his ascension, on the day of Pentecost, the Jewish festival of First Fruits, Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in his disciples, permanently. The indwelling of the Spirit profounding transformed the disciples, ushering them out of the room they had gathered in, onto the streets, where Peter's powerful first sermon was the catalyst for the Spirit transforming 3000 new hearts that day. And so the church was born! Let's relive that event together, and explore how it transforms our lives 2000 years later.
Many people are unwilling to experience the new things God is trying to do in their lives because of the baggage that keeps them longing for the past. When we wonder, "what if" or "if only," we rob ourselves of the fresh work of God within us that can take us places we cannot imagine.
Rejoicing Through Revelation
Separation is FROM the world, UNTO God; to stay in Babylon is to both FORFEIT God's blessings and FACE the loss of its ultimate destruction; God's Word invites you today: "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
Introduction Babylon has as long history. Established by Nimrod, Noah’s great-grandson He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.” The beginning of his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. From that land…

As Christians who live in a world opposed to God how can we not simply survive in our environment, but thrive? There are powerful examples and principles available to us by examining the faith of men of God who were taken into Babylon.

Bible scholars talk about "400 Silent Years." Does this mean anything to you? It ought to if you want to know how God prepared Israel to receive her King. We are talking about the time between the "close" of the Old Testament and the "opening" of the New Testament. The "silent years" were anything but silent. Join the Grace United crew as we take a fascinating look at these years and how God wove a cultural tapestry of literature, religion and politics to create hope in his people, setting the stage for the birth of the Messiah.

What did God want humanity to do? Represent him well in every corner of the planet. God said, "Go!" and the people said "No!" They stayed together and built a tower that reached to heaven. We know this as the Tower of Babel. God, as the hero of this story, puts his grace, love and mercy on display. Great is his faithfulness to do what he promised! He said he would send the redeemer, and introduced the one through whom he would keep that promise. His name? Abram. Join the Grace United crew as we hear again, for the first time, the story of the Tower of Babel, and all the begats of Genesis 10 and 11.
The Gospel According to Moses

War is among the uglliest, if not the ugliest activities anybody can engage in. People don't use the phrase, "war is hell" for nothing. Imagers of God actually killing fellow imagers of God with the sanction, with the approval, with the command of one's respective government. It was no different with Israel, as the Lord commanded his people to go to war. However Moses gave instructions about how soidiers were to ready themselves in preparation to fight against their enemy. What were those instructions? Is engaging in warfare proper for God's people today? Come with the Grace United crew as we discover anew and afresh of God's dealing with warfare, from the perspective of his holiness.
