In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth…
Then God said, “Let there be light and there was light.”
Nature of God
Can we know the nature of God? The scriptures give the believer awesome insight into the mind and heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father. We can know much about their nature, their relationship, their vision, their character, and their action in history through an in-depth examination of the Bible – their Word preserved for our understanding. God has revealed, but it is our task to study to come to know and be known by our Creator and covenant partner.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead so they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

Take a picture of your banner and send it to us!

Don’t think you’re on the right road, just because it’s a well-beaten path.
The inclination of 20th century societies to disregard God has resulted in social degeneration foreseen in the first chapter of Romans as a direct result of failing to fear God. “When they knew God, they glorified Him not as God…”so God gave them their pleasure in unrighteousness, certainly not as a reward, but as a curse. And what a curse it has proven to be!
A common attitude we often see around us is one of fearless defiance of God. This same attitude is also seen in children’s attitudes toward parents or authority figures. We live in a society that shows no respect, no reverence for anything and therefore no awe and no honour toward God. God reminds His people to ‘…learn to fear the LORD your God always.’ Why is fear important and a necessary thing to salvation? (Deuteronomy 14:23) More
The Story of Rahab isn’t often thought of as a “Passover Story” but when we think of the events that are tied to this Holy Day season perhaps the story of entering the Promised Land is as important as the story of leaving Egypt.
This short script in two acts is especially good as a play for the pre-teen set, but could work with all ages as a reader’s theatre script, or a youth bible lesson.
