It is a sad but true statistic that one out of two marriages in the Western world ends up in divorce. Among Christian conservatives, the statistic is one out of three. This is alarming. It appears that even among Bible-believing Christians, the divorce rate is not far behind the rest of the Western world. What is more alarming is that this gap is closing.
How can a Christian man win his wife's heart back is not really that different than any other, the biggest difference is that you believe in Jesus Christ, and you are doing your best to be a good man! If you have lost your wife, and want to win her back there is a sequence that you can follow to achieve such a goal. From one Christian man to another, to get your wife back, one needs to have true dedication, and the courage to accept the things you can not change, and change the things that you can...
That is more important? Should a Christian woman go to college to become a career woman or should she learn all she can about how to be a good helpmeet to her husband and stay happily married for life? I see much confusion and conditioning in the mainstream Christian culture of today. When career and money become more important than commitment and love many Christian people are being deceived.
The following powerful Scripture compares two opposite philosophies of education, two contrary perspectives of God and the world, two completely opposing worldviews.
"See to it that no one takes you CAPTIVE through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principle the world, rather than according to CHRIST." Apostle Paul, Colossians 2:8
If you’ve grew up in the church, you probably have heard the term, “Spiritual Warfare.” In the past, you might have reacted and said, “I don’t like conflict. I want peace.” However, here’s the truth! If you are a Christian, you are in a battle whether you like it or not. When it comes to horizontal relationships, you should avoid conflict (1 Thess. 5:13; Heb. 12:14). When it comes to your spiritual walk, however, you cannot avoid conflict because there’s an enemy out there who wants to make your life miserable.
Scenario: I have a foreclosure soon to take place on my first mortgage. What happens to the second mortgage if it is paid up to date? I was so stupid that paid a company XYZ to negotiate a plan for paying the first loan. they promised me that the first mortgage lender would surely accept their plan. But they dropped the ball and the first lender won`t take anything. Now, it`s just 10 days left for the foreclosure sale. The lender is simply trying to blame it on me. Is there anyway I can get back the? What`s going to happen when they sell off the home?
Churches and religious organization are automatically exempted from tax payment on the net income from their exempt activities. Unlike almost all other non-profit organizations, churches enjoy these tax exemptions even if they have not obtained the exempt status determination letter under section 501 (c) 3 from the Internal Revenue Codes. This does not mean that the church cannot engage in profitable ventures.
Many homeowners in the United States today may have fallen victim to fraudulent or predatory lending practices. If your client is having difficulty paying their mortgage-you have options, especially if there may be proof that their lending institution mislead or failed to disclose the terms of their loan properly. In many cases, clients who have hired Wellspring Mortgage Services to perform a Mortgage Audit, have been able to avoid foreclosure, have their principal reduced, switch their adjustable to a fixed rate loan or even have their payments lowered.
Rosemarie Homan was born with a rare genetic disorder known as ‘Sacral Agenesis’, I had severely deformed legs with feet pointing in opposite directions.
There was no feeling in my legs and, as a child; I was in danger of harming myself. When I was two years old my mother and father, after consulting with many doctors at the Children’s Hospital, decided that the best course of action was to have my legs amputated. This insightful decision by my parents allowed me to lead a fairly normal childhood.
This prayer is designed to take authority over conditions that bring on pregnancy failure. It is recommended that the believer say these prayers until their desire is manifested.

Iris Liang was brought up to do it herself, never to take a handout.
Her parents were raised in Communist China at a time when religion was forbidden. They came here to live out the American dream, sending their daughter to an Ivy League college, where she was expected to follow in their footsteps of hard work and upward progress.“I grew up with a really works- and merit-based mentality,” Liang says. “My parents came to America to get me the American dream. That meant if you worked hard enough and got a good education, you could climb the ladder and get to the upper middle-class lifestyle. They sacrificed a lot to get me here.”
Greetings, brothers and sisters in Christ.
This is the month the Lord has made; we must rejoice and be glad in it! We thank God for seeing us from the beginning of the year till now. I pray that uncommon testimonies will be our portion throughout this month, in Jesus’ name. Our prayer focus for the month is Boldness: confronting your fears.
Your child needs to know what to do when he has nightmares or bad dreams. I taught my daughters and grandsons that whenever they had a bad dream or if fear came into their heart, they should sing, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so…” You can teach them to say, “In the name of Jesus, I will not be afraid!” and “Jesus is my Lord.”
After much evaluation of my life, my past, my present and visualizing my future, it is imperative for me to move forward. I realize I can’t move forward while being hindered and distracted by my past failures, hurts, mistakes or my present issues. So I have filed for a Divorce.
"First bind...then spoil..."
Briefly: "BINDING" THE ENEMY SIMPLY MEANS STOPPING HIM FROM ACTING, THEN DESTROYING HIS WORKS.
Prayer must, therefore, be (1) destructive, (2) constructive. Wield (1) the AUTHORITY of the NAME (Mark xvi. 17); (2) the BLOOD of the Lamb; and (3) the TESTIMONY against Satan (Rev. xii. 11), that he is conquered and must withdraw.
If there is anything the enemy loves, is the failure of divine destinies. He loves failure and dislikes success. He will always try to abort a success plan before it takes off. He is only interested to abort a dream before its fulfillment. His mission as usual is, to steal, to kill, and to destroy. John 10:10, and continually, he moves to and fro looking for whom to destroy. 1 Peter 5:8. For every divine dream, there is always a plot from the pit of hell to cause a miscarriage or total stoppage.
The Marine Kingdom is one of Satan’s most powerful strongholds. It is also the least understood of the three strongholds, the others being the heavens and earth.
The Lord in His love for man, when He created us gave us dominion and authority over these three areas:
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Why should a Christian pray? How often should I pray? These questions and many more are constantly heard from people. Some people wonder if there is really any need to pray. This article is to emphasize the importance of praying to a Believer and is listed in no particular order.
Christian warfare consist of a battle against the monarchs of darkness and spiritual powers of wickedness in high places, against demons of the world and of the mind. The bible declares that we are to recognize and cast down vain imaginations. We are commanded to resist those things that are exalted against the knowledge of God. We are empowered to bring unrighteous thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Jesus Christ.
There are several successful habits of highly effective Intercessors of which demonstrating dominion is one.
Biblical dominion is defined as the authority and ability that God gave to man in order for him to effectively reign and rule over the earth. Through Adam's sin we lost our dominion and through Jesus' righteousness we have regained it. But even though we have regained dominion, which is the authority and the ability to rule, we still need to demonstrate that authority and that ability in a very real and practical way on a daily basis!
People more commonly associate depression with adults rather than with the younger generation. Recent studies, however, show alarming statistics on teenage suicide as a result of depression: Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death for all persons regardless of age, sex or race; the third leading cause of death for young people aged 15 to 24; and the fourth leading cause of death for persons between the ages of 10 and 14. Depression now occurs in about 5% of adolescents at any given point in time and often without parents even knowing about it. According to a recent survey of high school students, teens (60%) often think about killing themselves and some (9%) say they have made an attempt at least once. In the past three decades, teen suicide worldwide has risen up to 300%.
Today, shockingly, I learned two people I know are either getting divorced or already are. An older couple that I have known for over ten years, and a couple that are very good fiends of my oldest son and daughter-in-law. Was it a covenant or a contract that they recognized between them?
You should love your life because the Bible says God has given us richly all things to enjoy (I Timothy 6:17)! Unfortunately for many people, life is just made up of one struggle after another with little to no enjoyment whatsoever. Some may even resort to using alcohol, drugs, food, or sex to escape their unfulfilled lives in an effort to mask their frustrations, resentments, and sadness.
March 30, 1970 - That was the day I graced the world with my presence. Little did I know how tumultuous my life would turn out to be. I was born and raised in San Francisco. My father and mother were both immigrants from China and Hong Kong, respectively. They eventually had five children, but, at that time, there were only my two sisters and me. My younger sister and brother were born four and five years after me. While my mom was pregnant with me, she had rubella (German measles). So I was born completely blind in both eyes. Thank God for his first miracle in my life. The doctors operated and were able to give me sight in my left eye.
Did you know that God commands that believers marry in the Lord? If a believer marries a non-believer the marriage could possibly weaken the Christian commitment of the believer. Even so, some Christians marry unbelievers because love has blinded them.
Some Christians believe they can change their spouse to be what they want them to be once they are married, but that is not true at all. In fact a person has to be willing to change for themselves, and not for anyone else.
Divorce breaks the hearts of those involved couples, children, parents, friends, church, and the heart of God. One of the greatest underlying events destroying marriages today is adultery. The following is a frank and spiritual message on how to save a marriage after an affair.
My fervent passion is in saving marriages and making them healthy and holy again. I encourage you to at least make a commitment not to remain at a disinterested distance when couples you love have their lives coming apart.
Too many men walk around wondering who they are. I Believe they are asking the wrong question. It's not about who you are ... It's about whose you are. When you realize that you are a child of the king, you have no need to walk around with your head hanging in shame, acting like your life is insignificant or waking around filled with pride and arrogance like no one can touch you. You are a prince. Don't you think it's time you start acting like it? The reasons so many of us are walking around aimlessly and like we don't have a clue is because we don't. How can we know who we are, when we don't know whose we are. We need to take the time to get to know Him, like in any relationship.
