πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Repentance or Grace for Us?

When the sinner is convicted by the Holy Spirit of the seriousness of sin and of judgment to come, and cries to the Lord to save him, he has, of course, repented, orΒ changed his mind, as the Greek word signifies. Many of God’s servants, however, considering only … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Why God Waits

St. Peter was not wrong when he declared at Pentecost that the last days had begun (Acts 2:16,17). They had indeed begun, but God had a secret plan to give the world a period of grace before putting down its rebellion and sending Christ to reign.

This secret purpose … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Payday Someday

While our children were growing up, by God’s gracious provision, our family had a small janitorial business to supplement our financial needs. We always took the children even if all they were able to do was gather the wastebaskets. One day, the girls were less than enthusiastic about their … ➑

πŸ‘‘ Forgiveness That Cannot Be Revoked

Centuries before Christ, the Psalmist said:

β€œIf thou, Lord, shouldst mark iniquities… who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with Thee…” (Psa. 130:3,4).

It is doubtful whether the Psalmist understood the basis upon which a just God, through the ages, has so graciously forgiven sins, but this has since … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Prophesied vs. Testified

“If it was Paul who revealed that Christ gave Himself a ransomΒ ‘for all’ (1 Tim. 2:6) as opposed to the “many” in Israel (Matt. 20:28),Β how do we explain John 1:29?”

“…John seeth Jesus…and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Do You Say ‘You’re Welcome!’?

When I was a boy, I was taught that if someone says “thank you,” the polite way to respond is to say, “You’re welcome.” In recent years I have noticed that “you’re welcome” has been replaced by “no problem,” or “not a problem.”

I’m not sure why this vexes … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How to Get to Heaven from Your Current Location

Are you (or do you know someone who is) trying to find acceptance with God apart from Christ? The defense may be, “I’m not so bad. After all, I’ve never murdered anyone,” as if God will accept us because we’ve never committed the act of murder. But which sin … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A New World Order

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy…” (I Tim. 1:12,13).

As “a blasphemer,” the Apostle Paul had good reason to be … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Who Would Think That God Could Lie?

“In hope of eternal life, which God,Β that cannot lie,promised before the world began” (Titus 1:2).

πŸ‘‘ Something We All Need…

“Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness” (Col. 1:11).

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How to Have Spiritual Discernment

Honest, prayerful study of the Word brings us to spiritual maturity and understanding. But does it not require superior intellectual powers to understand these β€œdeep things of God”? No indeed. Superior intellects among unsaved men are unable to appreciate even the β€œsimple” truths of the Word, for β€œthey are … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ What’s Hiding Under that Cloak?

“If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin” (John 15:22).

What on earth did the Lord mean here when He said that if He hadn’t come, the unbelieving Jews He had mentioned in the previous … ➑

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ The Violent Take It By Force?

“And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force” (Matthew 11:12).

The “violence” that the Lord said the kingdom had suffered since John’s day was the violent resistance that the unbelieving leaders in Israel waged … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A Successful Church

In our day, it’s easy to be wrongly programmed to equate numbers with a church being successful. Certainly, we want to grow. However, the Lord has a far different standard for success that we need to embrace as our standard. Paul said, β€œβ€¦ it is required in stewards, that … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A Heart Matter ❀️

β€œThy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11).

Today’s Scripture, believe it or not, lies at the heart of prayer.

Like innumerable other Christian subjects, prayer is terribly misunderstood. Superstition thus lurks in this realm. Since not considered dispensationally, prayer … ➑

β€œPraise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul. While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being” (Psalm 146:1,2).

Why does the Psalmist exhort,Β β€œPraise the LORD?”

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Jesus’ Earthly Ministry or His Heavenly Ministry?

In the controversy over β€œPauline truth,” not a few Fundamentalists have joined Modernists in attempting to exalt β€œthe teachings of Jesus” (on earth) above the Word of God through Paul. β€œWhich,” they ask, β€œshould bear the greater weight with us, the words of Jesus, or the words of Paul?”… ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Reigns of Christ

For 2500 yearsΒ β€œdeath reigned from Adam to Moses” (Rom. 5:14).

During this period of history it was demonstrated that β€œdeath passed upon all men,” not because the Law of Moses had condemned them to death, but simply because they were the offspring of fallen Adam, and depraved by … ➑

Two boys fight in a back alley. Fists fly. Shouts go up from the other youngsters standing by. β€œGive it to ‘im! Let ‘im have it!”

Finally one of the two struts away with an arrogant bearing, head and shoulders wagging. He has won!

But has he? Look at … ➑

πŸ‘‘ A Jealous God

We heartily thank God for every politician, athlete, actor or even criminal who comes to know Christ as Savior. But conversion alone does not qualify one for a place of prominence in Christian service. This, especially in Paul’s epistles, is reserved for mature believers, wholly separated to God and … ➑
