Psalm 23 is a challenge to learn about God in times of loneliness. Listen to what David experienced, what he clung to from his long dark nights, and long lonely days. As you listen, ask the Lord to give you the same desire. Then, echo each of David’s affirmations and make them your own testimony. Confess these loneliness lessons and find them true!

As Hebrews 6:18 reminds us, we are to flee to Jesus our Refuge each time we feel: unclean (Kedesh), weary (Shechem), homeless (Hebron), helpless (Bezer), hopeless (Ramoth), or tempted (Golan).
This video lesson was shot on location in the valley of Hakeldama. Dr. Barnett uses the Bible's descriptions of Hell to bring home the reality of an ETERNAL damnation. Christ offered the only way, and those that do not accept Him are bound for an awful eternity.
Sitting on the side of the mountain Herod built, we open to Matthew 2 and consider one of the greatest and most powerful kings of all time--Herod the Great. As we look at the largest palace complex ever built in the ancient world, and think of all his wealth, power, splendor and achievements--we are reminded by the dust and rubble of his desecrated and robbed tomb, that nothing ever lasts. At the instant of death we lose everything but the promises of God. How many of the promises of God are you sure that you are holding tightly to right now?
