Continuing his series on verses every believer should know by heart, Mitch Kruse introduces us to his third pivotal verse for believers. We’ll let him share it with you live on the air, but think about these things as you listen to the show: We all devise ways to either pull people toward God or to push them away from Him. The determining factor is how we respond to the life-giving inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Learn how God pulls those separated from Him and how we can inhale the breath of Life from God.

Chances are, you learned the story of Noah and his Ark when you were in a children's Sunday school class. A fascinating story, certainly, but it is so much more. It's the story of a tragedy - in which God poured out judgment on the earth - and it really took place. Jesus said in Scripture that the final days of the planet would be As It Was in the Days of Noah (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0-7369-6138-7), and Pastor Jeff Kinley joins us to examine clues of what is to come and equip believers to live wisely and redeem the time we have!
