Bearing the Name: Jesus

“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21, ESV) I’m just going to come right out and say it.

It was so bad in these places that God sent down fire to consume them and everyone in them. He... Continue Reading →
