Just My Imagination?

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis 6:5) Before I go any further, I just want to pass along this disclaimer: This article is not about the “Nephilim.” I repeat: This is not about ...

Logos, the Word

John 1:1 – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Christ was with God, and He was God. We know from Joh. 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us… full of grace and truth.” The Greek word for Word is Logos, ...

The Eternity of God

Everything about our eternal life hinges upon the fact that God is incorruptible, unchangeable, and eternal in His essence. You can find enormous comfort just by meditating upon the eternity of God.

Walking Circumspectly And Not As Fools But Wise

Eph.5:[15] See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,[16] Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.[17] Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.[18] And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; The most momentous and celebrated ...

Where Two Or Three Are Gathered…

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20) One of the most abused Scriptures, out of many, is Matthew 18:20.  This verse is used so often as a verse that proves that the Holy Spirit is present “when two or three are ...

Are We In The Last Days? Dispensational Differences

Faith-FULL!

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. (1 Corinthians 4:1-2) One of the most important things for anyone that ministers, no matter their role, is that they be faithful.  As ...

Marriage: On the Rock, or On the Rocks?

Marriage between men and women (there is no other way) is an institution which has for it’s establishment God, Himself.  He created Eve as a helpmeet for Adam, so that he would not be alone. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an ...

Father’s Day? Calling All Spiritual “Fathers”

Writer’s Block

I think it would be hard to believe that someone who holds before him “the unsearchable riches of Christ (Ephesians 3:8),” that have been revealed, would have a tough time thinking of something to write. Yet, it does happen on occasion. And, it’s not a bad thing, at all! I encourage young preachers not to ...

Be Not “Beguiled” With The Enticing Words Of Man

Col 2:1  For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;  Col 2:2  That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of ...

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” (1 Cor. 9:24) Just imagine your spiritual life is like a racetrack set before you. A straight road as far as the eye can see. And this is the only road you ...

The Amazing Body

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made ...

Elect of God & Predestination

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 ...

Ye Have the Poor With You Always

The Tomb 3 Days Later

So far every Tuesday, we’ve taken the four Gospel accounts and combined them into a single narrative to cover the Lord’s tempting in the wilderness, His Agony in the Garden, His arrest and trial, and His crucifixion. Today, we’re going to look at the resurrection of Christ, specifically the events at the tomb, which is ...

The Passion

“To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not ...

LOVE AND DOCTRINE

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not ...
