You give them something

35 Late in the day, his disciples came to him and said, “This is an isolated place, and it’s already late in the day. 36 Send them away so that they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy something to eat for themselves.” 37 He replied, “You give them something to eat.” But they said to him,Continue reading “You give them something”

Stephen

Members from Cyrene, Alexandria, Cilicia, and Asia enteredContinue reading “Stephen”

Parable of coins…

14 “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who was leaving on a trip. He called his servants and handed his possessions over to them. 15 To one he gave five valuable coins, and to another he gave two, and to another he gave one.

A lesson from the fig tree

29 “Now immediately after the suffering of that time the sun will become dark, and the moon won’t give its light.

The Spirit

Times and Seasons

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers and sisters, you do not need to have anything written to you. 2For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3When they say, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them, as laborContinue reading “Times and Seasons”

Present Sufferings, Future Glory

18I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. 19For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the children of God; 20for the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will but by the will of the one whoContinue reading “Present Sufferings, Future Glory”
