God s Unique Ways. Part 3

Mike Seale The life of the flesh is in the blood. Yesterday our thoughts centered on “His blood is our propitiation.” Today I want us the think about a second phrase, “redemption through His blood,” (Eph. 1:7). The word “redemption” in this text is the Greek word, “apolutrosis,” it refers to the releasing and deliverance […]

Unique Ways. Part 2

Mike Seale “For the life of all flesh is its blood: you must not eat the blood of any living thing because the life of every living thing is its blood; anyone who eats it will be cut off,” (Lev. 17:14). The first time I ever saw an animal drained of its blood was on […]

Challenging Authority

Mike Seale After the Wednesday night Men’s class, I got home and a life-long friend texted me a six minute video clip of TD Jake’s telling a personal story.
