Throughout Scripture, the Lord is present in creation in different ways at different times. He can be present to bless, or curse. When God’s favor is upon you, being in the presence of the Lord is something that lands on the blessing side of the ledger. Consider the following passages of Scripture:

16 Verses

Published by: Sam Crabtree
March 4, 2015

Chris Bruno, a former TBI student at Bethlehem, is now a New Testament professor at Northland International University. He has condensed the whole story of the Bible into 16 verses. 

From time to time it can be a helpful exercise to condense the gospel, or the story of the Bible, into a handful of verses. Some have tried to do it in a single verse. Bruno unpacks the 16 verses he has selected in a compact 127-page paperback. I suspect this book will become a very helpful tool for evangelism, for Sunday School teachers, and for small group leaders.

The Silent Ruler

Published by: Sam Crabtree
December 31, 2013

Once upon a time there was a famous Ruler, or at least it was rumored there was.  But he was a silent Ruler. He never came out into public. No one knew exactly what he looked like. He issued no decrees. He just did what he did, and went invisibly about his business, leaving his subjects to make guesses about who he was and what he was up to.

Words about him were inscribed upon the coinage of the land, although skeptics claimed those words were merely the sentiments of coin-makers, having nothing to do with a real ruler.
