Job 1-3

Written by

john-obrienThe book of Job is the oldest book of the Bible. But that does not mean it is out of date. When you read it, sit down and get confortable and read it at one sitting. It will fascinate you. The Old Teatament has been divided according to content. There are five books of the Old Testament are commonly called the "Books of Poetry".

 

These are :

  • Job
  • Psalms
  • Proverbs
  • Ecclesiastes
  • Song of Solomon

These are not books of poetry. Rather the classification comes from the style of writing in Hebrew. These are “Poetic” stype of writing compared to the narriative stype of writing.

The power of influence

Written by

john-obrienInfluence is invisible, mysterious and powerful. Many people whom have had a powerful influence on my life, actions and thinking have never met me. But now, even 10, 20 or 30 years later their influence still clings to me. It pulls and it bonds.

The Vision of Leadership

Written by

john-obrienYou were chosen to be a leader of His people, because of your selfless yielding to His will. You received an idea, an vision. You were given the vision, you did not originate it. It came out of your relationship with God. This relationship was formed and shaped through prayer and communication with God. God is telling you what He wants done in His local church that you have been placed in a leadership role.

What is a Christian Nation?

Written by

john-obrienEver since I was a child, I have heard of Americas’ story. America was founded by individuals who came here to escape religious intolerance. From there it was related to me that America was founded on “Christian Principles” From there the equation is: America equals Christian equals the reason why American has the leading role in the world. It is not easy to put a definition on the term Christian nation that would be acceptable in logic and in fact. One person remarked: Why do we need to define any nation as “Christian”, that is “Christ like”?

The security of all Christian is the reliable, unshaken, dependable, Kingdom of God. Nothing else can or will match that.
