Its focus is […]

Schools and the Fear of God

Evaluate along this same line the infulence of the school your children attend. If God says that the fear of God is the chief part of knowledge, then I think it is right to say that the absence of the fear of God is the chief part of folly. And if that is true, many […]

The Fear of God and Revival

What happens to a community of ten thousand people if suddenly two thousand of those people begin to walk in the fear of God? The conduct of those people is no longer governed by the eye of the policeman but by the eye of God. The students in the schools conduct themselves not with reference […]

Laying Hold of Sabbath Joy

Did you know that the Sabbath was made to secure joy and justice? In Isaiah 56:1-8, we learn that the love of God is secured in the keeping of His commandments.
