Prayer

May the God of us all bless and be with you and your family, friends, saints, and even those whom are secular coming to hear the Gospel. May all hearts be touched and secular peoples hearts be pricked with His Word that they will genuinely repent and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior through their newly founded God--Satan, leave this child of the living God along--touch him or her not in Jesus name is my prayer. Amen.

August 25: Riddle Me This
Isaiah 50:1–51:23; Luke 20:1–40

Jesus’ enemies regularly attempted to make Him look foolish or to disprove His authority. The absurd questions they concocted to discredit Him are rather amusing. The Sadducees posed one of the most preposterous questions about the resurrection of the dead and its relevance to divorce (Luke 20:27–33): If a woman has been married seven times, whose wife will she be when the dead are resurrected?
