One day Jesus asked His disciples, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?" (Matt. 16:13 NKJV). Today, there is still debate over who He is.
Some say, "Jesus was a great this and a great that. He was a mere man. He wasn't a mere man. He was a great teacher and a great prophet. He was the greatest moral person who ever lived."

JESUS SAID He is coming again. So why does He delay? Why does Jesus tarry so long? You may not realize it, but the Church has something to do with Christ's return! Can we hasten that event? According to the Word of God we can.
In the Old Testament, Absalom rose up against his father, King David, and the king fled Jerusalem. After Absalom was killed in battle, people began asking when King David was going to return.
KNOWN FOR its rich culture and ancient heritage, the boot-shaped nation of Italy is home to some of the oldest architecture in the world. Some of these aged structures date back to 70 A.D., their stoned foundations still standing strong.
One strong foundation of the Italian culture is family. Loyalty and devotion are integral parts of the family dynamic, whether immediate or extended. However, one relationship that is seen as being far-off or impossible to have is a personal relationship with God.

THE ENEMY is out to devour us and uses thoughts, ideas, and suggestions to accomplish his task. But our loving Heavenly Father has not left us unequipped to protect ourselves. We have been given armor—not just one piece, but the whole armor of God.
Our armor is not made out of metal, but rather knowledge. It's what we know about truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, salvation, and God's Word (Eph. 6:10–17).

IT'S IMPORTANT to understand God's plan for the last days. If not, it can be easy to become anxious about world events. The unrest we see around us, for instance, is nothing more than what is written in Scripture about the end times. The enemy knows that his time is short, and he's unleased every demon in hell to destroy the Church.
Now more than ever, the Church needs to step out of its comfort zone and be the glorious Church. It's time for the Body of Christ to hook up with the Head of the
WHERE DOES GOD TAKE US? All over the world!
Oklahoma is an unlikely place to start when reaching the uttermost parts of the earth! The unassuming Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow continues to be a starting point for people to come and go around the world.
We thank you, our worldwide family, for your prayers and partnership. Together we carry the torch into the nations and teach God's people faith!

MOST CHRISTIANS are familiar with the parable of the Good Samaritan that is recorded in Luke chapter 10. It is the story of a man who was robbed and left for dead on the side of a road. Both a priest and a Levite saw the man lying in the ditch. Both pretended not to see him. They left him battered, bruised, and bleeding on the side of the road.
A Samaritan saw the beaten man and had compassion on him. In Jesus' day, Samaritans and Jews did not get along. But when this Samaritan saw the wounded man,
ENCOURAGING. AMAZING. ELECTRIFYING! These are words women used to describe Lynette Hagin's 2017 Kindle the Flame Women's Conference. Wives, mothers, and daughters from across the U.S. and around the world experienced three dynamic days of ministry in September. "The joy is contagious in this place!" shared one woman. "I always leave so refreshed," said another.
Over the course of the weekend, the women heard powerful messages, attended workshops, and enjoyed great fellowship. They left changed, set free, and healed! Kindle the Flame 2018 is scheduled for September 27–29 on the Rhema USA campus.

FOR MOST PEOPLE, Christmas is filled with joy, peace, and goodwill. However, the events leading up to the first Christmas were fairly traumatic for one person. His name was Joseph.
MATTHEW 1:18–21, 24 (NKJV)
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.

DECEMBER IS WHEN we focus on Christmas parties and family celebrations. But the most important celebration is the birth of our Savior. When I think of Jesus' birth, I particularly think of the angels telling the shepherds that the Savior of the world was born.
"Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring
