The Offering of Cain

Ever since the fall of man into a state of sin, there have been two different means by which man has attempted to find acceptance in the eyes of Yahweh. These two means are illustrated in the offerings brought to Yahweh by the brothers Cain and Abel. Genesis 4:3-5 It came about in the course of...

Christ is Not Far Off

When God’s Word Tarries

Joseph Herrin (12-08-08) Many of God’s people, and more than a few who read this blog, are in a season of waiting upon the word of God to be fulfilled in their lives.
