We have no king but Caesar!" Strange words coming from the mouths of religious people who hated Rome. A demonically inspired collusion, a marriage of convenience to get their bloody task completed. Could it be that we too make such collusions to serve our own ends?

Old Story. Powerfully new application. Same bottom line. You decide.
01/21/2006
A lone defender of God's honor and truth stood up against an ancient tri-lateral alliance that threatened his life. The same players are all in place for the final showdown just before the return of Jesus. Where are you among them?
02/04/2006
Think persecution is a thing of the past: Bible times, early church, Dark Ages, etc.,not the present or the future? Think again! But then, why don't we experience it more today? The Bible's answer is clear, disturbing, hopeful.
02/25/2006
Faced any closed doors lately? Financially, socially, professionally, health wise? Consider this: those closed doors could be setting you up for God's BHAG! So, what's a BHAG? Very good question. You won't be disappointed in the very important answer.
03/04/2006
Technological advances are conquering outer space and cyber space. But there's one last, great frontier to be conquered for God. And it will be conquered . . . when God's last question becomes our first.

"How long will you go limping?" Aging movements do that, don't they? And yet the Elijah movement in the end will be a race through earth's final storm. The Elijah secret is in the seven-fold prayer.

Dickens' statement sets up this classic reflection on Easter. How is it possible to hold the opposites of death and faith, despair and hope in the same heart?
04/22/2006
What causes you to jump for joy or sends you into a pit of despair? The answer, divinely etched into human nature, also provided the antidote to depression. Imagine, if you dare, the Magic Kingdom!

Level 5 (top rung) leaders, not only in top companies and families on earth but also in the divine economy in heaven, have a common, counter-intuitive characteristic. Do you possess it?

Pioneer Veterans

Adventist active-duty military personnel are eligible to receive a free devotional book, courtesy of the National Service Organization and Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries. Single service members, as well as other employee categories, may choose one free devotional. Married service members may choose two devotional books. You may order these online in your personal profile here at AdventistsonUniform.org. There will be more information about the profile next week.
Our National Service Organization, a subsidiary of Adventist Chaplaincy Ministries offers a free devotional book annually.

To be eligible for NSO-sponsored complimentary devotional books, you must be a Seventh-day Adventist Church member in an Adventist church in the North American Division and in one of the following military-related categories:

  • All North American Division members who are active-duty military stationed overseas for a year or longer
  • DoD civilian employee of the military services stationed overseas
  • DoDEA teacher or principal stationed overseas
  • Military exchanges (AAFES, NEX, etc.) worker overseas
  • Government contractor overseas
  • A spouse living overseas with their non-Adventist military spouse

Keep our service people in prayer. They face some difficult decisions and endure hardships daily and need God's wisdom and protection. Have you any military family members or friends that we can include in our prayers? Send their names to jjnorthjr@gmail.com.
