What's His Favorite Name?

You may have several names that you are known by. If your name is Robert, you might be called Rob, Robby, or even Bob. But, more than likely, there’s one name that you’d rather be called more than any other . . . your favorite name! Well, God has several names that He is known by too! One person might call Him “Almighty God” while someone else calls Him “Jehovah God” and still another calls Him “Lord God.” He has a lot of different names, but, just like you, there is one name that He would rather be called more than any other. Can you guess what His favorite name is?


Seed Thoughts

Lynette HaginBy Lynette Hagin

It seems that I say in every December issue of The Word of Faith, it’s hard to believe another year has come and is almost gone. The years go by so quickly that we can hardly keep track of them. The holiday season is here and that puts most of us women in a tizzy. We think of Christmas shopping, parties, and cooking.


Hope: The Greatest Gift Ever Given


To many people, Christmas is about giving and receiving. There is an excitement in finding the perfect gifts for loved ones and seeing the looks on their faces as they open their gifts. And there is also a joy in receiving a gift that you really wanted or were surprised to receive. To our Heavenly Father, Christmas is also about giving and receiving. The Bible says in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (NIV). God gave us the most precious gift He could give—Jesus Christ. And Jesus gave His life for us so we could spend eternity in Heaven with Him. All we have to do is receive Him as our Lord and Savior. This greatest Gift is available to you right now. If you haven’t made Jesus your Lord and Savior, pray the following prayer:


2009 Year in Review: Working Together To Reach the World!

2009 Year In Review

Pacific Rim Trip
Shortly after the close of a Sunday morning RHEMA Bible Church service in April, Kenneth and Lynette Hagin and a crew of five began a 21,668-mile trip to the lush tropics of Southeast Asia. Hopscotching across the equator, they traveled to Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia.


Living In Love

By Kenneth E. Hagin

The Bible encourages us to let acquiring the love of God be our great aim and quest in life (1 Cor. 14:1 Amplified). There must be a reason why God wants walking in the God-kind of love to be a priority in our lives. Actually, there are wonderful benefits and good results that come when we walk in love.


What Legacy Are You Leaving?

What kind of legacy are you leaving for the next generation? What kind of “history book” are you writing? You see, we’re all writing our own history book—a history of our lives. And we’re also leaving a legacy that someone else is going to follow. The kind of legacy we leave is vitally important, because that’s how we make our contribution to the world!


Kindle The Flame

It rained the week before Lynette Hagin’s Kindle the Flame® Women’s Conference in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. On some days, it poured. But as is so typical before any event Lynette Hagin plans, the rain stopped, the clouds parted, and the sun shone brightly as 1,800 women descended on the RHEMA
Bible Church campus.

“Forget about everybody but you,” Mrs. Hagin told the women Thursday evening. “I ignored my cell phone all day today. If I can do it, so can you.”


The Prince of Peace

Lynette HaginBy Lynette Hagin

We have more conveniences and luxuries today than ever before. And with all these conveniences, you would think that we would have more time and peace in our lives. But just the opposite is true. Instead of having more time, we have less. And instead of being more peaceful, many people today don’t have any peace.


God's Geese

A man by the name of Bob didn’t believe much in God and was quick to let anyone know. His wife, however, was a believer and raised their children to have faith in God.

One snowy Christmas Eve, Bob’s wife and children pleaded with him to go with them to church . He refused. “Christmas is nonsense!” he said. “Why would God lower Himself to come to earth as a man?” So his wife and children left, and Bob stayed home.


Immanuel: God With Us

Kenneth W. HaginBy Kenneth W. Hagin

Our Lord and Savior was born in a stable in Bethlehem. The Christ child lying in a manger was a picture of God and man united once again. God was separated from His creation at the Fall of man in the Garden of Eden. The baby lying in the manger was Immanuel, which means “God with us”! And at Jesus’ birth, God became like one of us.


Heart To Heart

A Time to Celebrate
The lights, the Christmas carols, and the handsomely wrapped gifts are all part of the sights and sounds of Christmas. But is that what Christmas is really all about?

To some, Christmas is the shepherds, the magi with their camels, and the angels singing “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Luke 2:14). But we must not allow the sights and sounds of the season to take away from the true meaning of Christmas!
