What is the direction to heaven from earth? (Nepal)

The Bible does not specifically give this information. However, for the natural man, God has associated Himself with a northerly direction.  Consider Psalm 75:6,7 , "Promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south, but God is the Judge.

How can I discover my spiritual gifts? (United States)

A person's self-discovery may be different from God's direction. We walk with God by praying for opportunities of service. If you are sincere and humble, the Lord will open your eyes to the needs of others. Daily, we will begin to see ways to aid others, both spiritually and naturally.  Most of the time, we help in small ways.

When I was growing up, these ancestors caused strange sicknesses until people obeyed their wills. (South Africa)

Many today believe that the dead are not dead, but are really more alive than ever. They do not realize that they are believing the original lie taught by the Serpent, “that you will not die, but you will be like God”  Genesis 3:4-5. Satan uses scriptural parables and dark sayings, taken out of context, [...]

How much less this temple which I have built!” God’s greatness is beyond our comprehension. Isaiah 55: 8, 9  “For my thoughts are [...]
