Voice of the Lord
Devotional for 'Tammuz 27'

"Today's Word" with Skip Moen
Verily

Verily - The Greek word here is not Greek at all. It is a Hebrew word. And this Hebrew word is a word that we have brought over into English without translating it. The word is amen.

Morning and Evening with A.W. Tozer
Morning / Evening Devotional — July 21

God called Israel… … — (click here to read more)
