Ephesians 5:26 - "So that He might sanctify her (the church), having cleansed her by the washing of the water with the Word."
More than once the Word of God is referred to as water. The blood deals with sin, but it's water that addresses impurity.

Being born of God entitles us to citizenship in the kingdom of God. In Luke 12:32, Jesus said, "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. " We don't own a part of the kingdom of God, we own it…Continue

Goliath first used fiery darts against David (his words of negativity), believing that the negativity alone would cause David to cower down! Yes, Goliath's negative words were meant to be a "first-blow"…Continue
