Preparing for the Latter Rain
Pharisaical Righteousness vs. Christ’s Righteousness
Pharisaical Righteousness vs. Christ’s Righteousness. The religion of the Pharisees revolved around their pride in their own theoretical knowledge and external ceremonies. But it’s only by faith in God and a vital connection with Christ that we can become righteous.
How important it is that we as believers avoid comparing ourselves with others and flattering ourselves into a lackadaisical state, forgetting the spiritual battle that must be overcome in God’s strength.

Petitioning the throne of grace in behalf of our children brings results to a far greater extent than we tend to realize. Read this inspiring testimony of a doubting adult son whose heart was drawn back to Christ through the persistent prayers of his God-fearing mother!

“The Most Precious Message”
The message of “Christ our Righteousness” is a truth presented in our seminars to prepare a people to be ready for the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. It lays the glory of man in the dust and uplifts the risen Saviour as our only Source of strength in the Christian walk.
