πŸ‘‘ The Origin of Lawlessness

To what can we attribute the lawlessness that currently plagues the world?

It is a product of the mystery of iniquity, which is Satan’s plan to undermine all God-given authority. He has been effectively working behind the scenes since the days of the Apostle Paul to bring the world … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ What About Me In The Future?

Is it not amazing that men who can produce intricate electronic mechanisms, build giant sky-scrapers, fly men to the moon and back β€” is it not amazing that such men often do not even know what will finally become of themselves! And what is more amazing still is that … ➑

πŸ‘‘ That Precious Deposit

The story is told of how a wealthy man and his son loved to collect rare works of art. They had everything in their collection, from Picasso to Raphael. They would often sit together and admire the great works of art. When the Vietnam conflict broke out, the son … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Why No Replacement for James?

“If the apostles picked a replacement for Judas when he died, why didn’t they pick a replacement for James when he was killed?”

We know that the Lord told the Twelve that “in the regeneration” they would “sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel” in the … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Day Of Itching Ears

For the professing Church the day of theological controversy has passed. Ecumenism is now the word on every tongue. Church leaders appear to have become convinced that the stifling confusion in the Church can be overcome only by all of us getting together, minimizing our differences and emphasizing those … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A Stone Of Stumbling

Some thirty years after the death and resurrection of Christ, St. Peter wrote to the believers of the Jewish dispersion:

β€œUnto you therefore which believe He is precious; but unto them which be disobedient, the Stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Puffed Up Believers?

The knowledge that God has placed divisions in His Word is, indeed, precious. It helps us better understand truth in Scripture, and dissolves what otherwise would seem to be contradictions. But there areΒ two dangersΒ we should be keenly aware of and avoid.

The first is to search only ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Rightness Of God

There are many theological words which most people β€” even most Christian people β€” do not under-stand. Among these is the Bible word β€œrighteousness”. Actually, though, this word is very simple and we ought to understand about God’s righteousness even before we learn of His love.

Righteousness is simply … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Bible and Its Author

Back on the shelf she placed the book with a sigh. It was too dull and uninteresting to wade through. She didn’t feel like reading anyway; in fact, she was utterly bored, and didn’t feel like doing anything.

The next night was different β€” very different. At a party … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Gladly The Cross I’d Bear

The above title is based on an old Christian joke that tells of a hymn by this name that was misunderstood by a child to refer to a cross-eyed bear named Gladly! It is not known if there ever was such a hymn, but the idea for the title … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Continue Thou

β€œEvil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse…but continue thou” (II Tim. 3:13,14).

These were among the last words of the great Apostle Paul, written in view of his approaching martyrdom, to Timothy, his beloved son in the faith.

Circumstances, outwardly, were anything but encouraging. It seemed that … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Redeeming the Time

“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Eph. 5:16).

Time is a very precious commodity–here one minute, gone the next! If we were to paraphrase “redeeming the time,” it would probably come out something like this: “Making wise use of the opportunities we are given.” This, of course, … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Resurrected Body

Winter is a great time of the year to sit down by a crackling fire with a cup of hot coffee and read a good book. But thankfully, winter’s blast eventually turns into the warm breezes of spring when the flowers begin to bloom. We go from the barreness … ➑

πŸ‘‘ True Thanksgiving

Many people entertain only vague notions about thanksgiving, just as they do about faith.

They confuse faith with optimism, will power, presumption, imagination, and all sorts of other things. A doctor tells his patient that but for his faith, he never would have come through his illness. Somehow the … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Confessing Christ

β€œβ€¦if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom. 10:9,10).

In these … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Living God

β€œMy soul thirsteth for God, for the living God” (Psa. 42:2).

For years we supposed that the term β€œthe living God,” in the above passage, had reference to God’s power to help, in contrast to the impotence of dead heathen idols. A careful examination of the context, however, leads … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Christ’s Death For All

Paul preached Christ’s death for all men. In I Tim. 2:4-7, he states emphatically that this glorious truth was first committed specifically to him:

β€œWho will have ALL MEN to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Understandest Thou What Thou Readest?

This was the question Philip asked of the Ethiopian prince as he sat reading from Isaiah’s prophecy (Acts 8:30), and it is a question which we should continually keep asking ourselves as we read the Holy Scriptures.

There are always those among God’s people who do not muchΒ care ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Puzzle Or Picture?

Where β€œrightly dividing the Word of truth” (II Tim. 2:15) is concerned, our spiritual leaders are like a group of people, each one of whom holds a part or several parts of a jig-saw puzzle, but who fail to put them together and so never get to see the … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Bethlehem’s Babe Exalted

The Bible accounts of the birth of Christ are touching indeed. The angelic announcements, the virgin with child, deeply embarrassed, yet highly honored; the holy Babe in a stable because there was no room in the inn, wrapped in swaddling bands and laid in a manger; the night suddenly … ➑
