The Beautiful Fruit of Clinging to Him – Part Two Maggie Kimball

In last month’s article, I shared not only about the negative fruit which comes about from making poor decisions, resulting in brokenheartedness, bitterness, jealousy and feelings of abandonment, rejection and loneliness, but also  what happens when we fully surrender to Yeshua.

Prayer Changes Things Martin Boardman

In my last article, “Stephen – Full of the Ruach HaKodesh,” we examined from Acts chapter 6 the calling of Stephen, our first Shammashim (Deacon), where the Emissaries (Twelve Apostles) recognized the need for the care of widows so that they might continue in the ministry of prayer and the Word.
