Time to Fervently Seek God
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   09.17.20
King Jehoshaphat was the ruler of Judah for 25 years from 873 to 848 BC. He had his good and bad moments as a leader, but ultimately, his desire was to honor the Lord, despite his spiritual fumbles during his reign. According to 2 Chronicles 20, the Moabites, Ammonites, and Meunites gathered to attack Jehoshaphat and his kingdom.

How would he respond to these enemy forces coming against him?
The Holder of Our Tomorrow
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   08.12.20
This year has been a very, very interesting year. Some will say it has been a difficult year. Others will say that it’s been a frustrating year. But all would agree that it’s been an unforgettable year.  My last message to my Church before the “shutdown” was a prophetic one, without even knowing it.  It was one that God knew that I and our Church family needed to hear.

It seems like Satan is getting a lot of “positive nods” in the last couple of months.  In December, the Secretary of State’s office at the Illinois Capital in Springfield allowed the Satanic Temple in Chicago to add a monument, which was placed next to the Nativity Scene for Christmas and the Menorah to mark Hanukkah.

By Dr. Joey Krol   |   06.05.18
In the last several years, we’ve seen a strong movement towards unrighteous in our country.  A look at the headlines, news stories, social media and other forms of media, reminds us that this world is not our home.  However, while this world is not our home, we still need to live, work and be an ambassador for Christ.
Cleaning House: A Recommitment to Prayer
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   01.30.17
By now, most of us have out away our Christmas lights and decorations. However, the hope and truth of the Christmas story still remains. Luke 2:7 says “And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” This one verse tells us that Jesus was born in a manger, because there was no room at the local motel.
