God's Word Is the Living Word (5 of 6)
THE WORD FROM THE LORD
Dr. Stan Coffey
1 John 5:6
We looked at Jeremiah 37:17 where Jeremiah was asked by King Zedekiah this question: Is there any word from the Lord? That's what the modern age is asking today. What does the church have to say? What do Christians have to say? What do believers have to share to the answers to the problems that we face? Is there any word from the Lord?
