I’m So Tired!

The “Foolish” Wisdom Of This World

1st Cor.3:18] Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.[19] For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.[20] And again, The Lord ...

Does God intervene today? Absolutely. Did God not intervene when He called you by His gospel? Did God not intervene when you were convicted by His Holy Spirit and you chose to embrace His gospel by faith? Did God not intervene when the Spirit indwelt you and baptized you the moment you believed? Did God ...

“Let This Mind Be In You Which Was Also In Christ Jesus”

Phil.2:2] Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.[3] Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.[4] Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things ...

Satan vs. God

After the temptation in the garden of Eden and the fall of mankind into sin, you have this fascinating back-and-forth in a spiritual warfare between God and Satan. When man fell into sin (Gen. 3), God by His grace sought man out, sacrificed animals, clothed them with skins, and told Satan that a redeemer would ...
