His Grace Reigns!

Rom 5 is the end of a great section of Romans that begins in chapter 3, which is all about our justification through faith in Christ’s payment for our sins on the cross. Of course, you cannot have chapters 3-5 without chapters 1-2. They are essential set-ups to the payoff verses about how we may ...

Citizens of the Heavens

F.B. Meyer, who was a contemporary of Moody, a Baptist, once wrote, “The nearer the saint comes to the perfect life, the farther he feels from it. It is only when we have climbed the foothills that we realize how lofty the mountain summits are. But there is no need for discouragement. We have eternity ...

We Are One – A Study in Organic Dynamics

The Organic Union We live in an age when individual rights, self-reliance and independence is greatly valued (at least in word if not always in substance). People everywhere are “doing their own thing.” This attitude is also pervasive in the Church, the Body of Christ and manifests itself in many forms. One form that many ...

Nobody’s Perfect? The “Perfecting” Of The Saints

Col.1:28] Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: [29] Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily.

Getting Dressed for the New Year

Col 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. 3:14 And above all these things put on ...

Unsatisfied

Our flesh is in a continual state of dissatisfaction. It relishes all the religion and self-effort that we can throw at it and then screams for MORE. “Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances, {21} (Touch not; ...

Being An “Acceptable” Living Sacrifice

Rom.12:1] I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. [2] And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and ...

Jerusalem, Our Mother

Gal 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. Isn’t this a fascinating verse? Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all! The Jerusalem that is above is our mother! How amazing is that? How often do we hear grace pastors celebrating the ...

“Beware Lest Any Man Spoil You”

Col.2:8] Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. The Apostle Paul knew that his warning to the Saints in the epistle of Colossians was not to be taken lightly, he let them first know that it ...

Universal Reconciliation?

Occasionally, I check out various writings on subjects that interest me and lately I have been perusing Universal Reconciliation websites. It is puzzling to me about all the hoopla over the translation over the Greek word ‘aionios’ (everlasting, eternal, etc.). The common vein is to question all translations of the scripture and to suggest that ...

The Watchers are Cool

There is a ton of craziness said about the watchers in Christendom today. I would just point out that this story we’re about to read in Daniel 4 is the only reference to the watchers in the Bible. There’s a verse in Jeremiah 4 talking about “watchers come from a far country”who gave “out their ...

“Fools Despise Wisdom And Instruction”

Prov.1:[7] The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Eze 28:15  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.  Eze 28:16  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, ...

A Spirit-Filled Thankfulness

Paul wrote in Eph 5:18, “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.” I knew one pastor who struggled to understand why the Lord put these two seemingly different commands together in one verse. How does one equate being drunk with wine to being filled with the Spirit? ...

The Essence of Grace

“Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” What a marvelous declaration from God that echoes through this age, as penned by the Apostle Paul! However, it is so sad that many people are ignorant of the fact that we live in a time designated by God ...
