• THE SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS OF THE BELIEVER

    by

     In many ways it could be said that the BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST is the RICHEST AND MOST BLESSED PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. At times as we look around us and see the "apparent" prosperity of the godless, that may be difficult to realize. Nevertheless it is true that THE BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST HAS MORE IN LIFE AND ETERNITY THAN THE UNBELIEVER WILL EVER BEGIN TO IMAGINE OR EXPERIENCE! One passage of scripture that solidifies that reality is Ephesians 1:1-14 where the Holy Spirit led the Apostle Paul to speak of the SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS OF THE BELIEVER. This text should prove not only to be an academic study of the scripture, but also a passage of GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT as we learn more about what we have in Christ. As the old spiritual song says, "IT IS A GRAND THING TO BE A CHRISTIAN," this text relates to us why that is the case.

  • IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

    by
     
    At various times in the Word of God we see illustrations of situations where people have been blessed by being in the presence of the Lord:
    -Moses: Exodus 3:1-6
    -Isaiah: Isaiah 6:1-8
    -Disciples: Matthew 17:1-8
    EXPERIENCING THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD IS SOMETHING WE SHOULD ALL DESIRE...NOT IN THE SENSE OF SEEING HIM DIRECTLY, AS THAT IS NOT NECESSARILY HOW GOD WORKS IN THIS AGE, BUT BEING CLOSE TO HIM TO THE POINT THAT HE CHANGES OUR LIVES.

  • TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS

    by
     
    There are many things going around us that can discourage those of us who love the Lord and want to see Him glorified. Some of those things take place at work. Some in the family. Some in the church. Some in society. We would do well to remember that things will not be perfect and that no matter where we turn discouraging things will be taking place. Because of the discouraging things many Christians become discouraged, give up, quit, become negative, jump from job to job or church to church and some even leave the community and in certain cases the Country. BUT NO MATTER WHERE WE GO ON EARTH WE WILL RUN INTO DISCOURAGING THINGS! SO, WHAT DO WE DO? Hebrews 12:1-4 has the answer. Let’s take a look!

  • BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES ON BECOMING A BLESSED AND AN EFFECTIVE CHRISTIAN

    by
     
    HAVE YOU STOPPED TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT SOCIETY LATELY? I am sure some of you have and in doing so, if you are a COMMITTED CHRISTIAN, you have not really been encouraged. If you are not a COMMITTED CHRISTIAN what is taking place in society probably has not bothered you too much. In fact you may be inclined to go along with it all. But the 21st Century society in which we live has many moral and spiritual issues. (Bruce "Caitlin" Jenner at the ESPY awards). In my life time THE MORAL AND SPIRITUAL CONDITION OF SOCIETY HAS TAKEN A REAL TURN FOR THE WORSE.

  • THE ULTIMATE SERVANT:JESUS CHRIST

    Many people these days are looking for WAYS TO HAPPINESS. And their search goes into many difference areas. But the text we have before us relates one of the most SPIRITUALLY WHOLESOME WAYS TO HAPPINESS. BEING A TRUE SERVANT OF THE LORD.

  • LIVING IN ANTICIPATION OF THE COMING DAY OF THE LORD

    by
     
    We are living in both EXCITING AND SERIOUS TIMES! The times are EXCITING because we are seeing prophecy being fulfilled before our very own eyes and the RAPTURE IS GETTING CLOSER! The times are SERIOUS because the attitudes and the actions of society are rejecting biblical truth, denying godly principles and opposing the work of Christ. It seems like every day the BASIC ABSOLUTES OF SCRIPTURE ARE BEING AGGRESSIVELY TORN APART BY SECULAR AND HUMANISTIC THOUGHT. All of this is to be expected as we draw closer to the RETURN OF CHRIST and anticipate the COMING DAY OF THE LORD. But HOW ARE WE AS CHRISTIANS TO LIVE IN LIGHT OF WHAT IS GOING ON AROUND US? Under the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit the Apostle Paul gives us clear direction in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11

  • THE DUTY OF NATIONS

    by
    As we celebrate AMERICA'S INDEPENDENCE we would do well to take a good look at what we have
    in this Nation. America has experienced the BLESSING OF GOD far more than any other nation upon the face of
    the earth up to this point in time, including Israel. AMERICA WAS FOUNDED ON BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES
    OF RIGHTEOUSNESS AND TRUTH BY MEN WHO RECOGNIZED THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THOSE
    PRINCIPLES IN GOVERNMENT AND PERSONAL LIFE. But in the last several generations America has
    been on a trend away from those principles of righteousness and truth. AMERICA IS IN THE PROCESS OF
    FORGETTING GOD!

  • NOW THAT SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS THE LAW OF THE LAND WHAT IS THE CHURCH TO DO

    by
     
    On June 26, 2015 something happened in the United States of America that I never thought would happen. Many celebrated! It was a very sad day! THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT HANDED DOWN A DECISION ON HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE THAT INCLUDED:
    1) That all 50 States of the Union may grant licenses for homosexuals and lesbians who desire to get married.
    2) That all States that DO NOT grant licenses for homosexual and lesbian marriage MUST recognize the licenses of the States that do.
    WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN IN AMERICA?

  • CHALLENGES FOR THE MAN OF GOD

    by
     
    Today is FATHERS DAY when people all across America will be HONORING THEIR FATHERS. Indeed we MUST HONOR GODLY FATHERS! Throughout scripture God is looking for MEN to be MEN OF GOD. Sadly there were certain times when HE COULD FIND NONE…Ezekiel 22:30. But most of the time there was a remnant of GODLY MEN who stood for the TRUTH OF GOD! Today, GOD IS LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO WOULD CHARACTERIZE AS BEING "MEN OF GOD."

  • THE UNDERSTANDING OF MARRIAGE

    by
     
    We are facing a situation in America today that would have never been considered an issue in the mind of our founders 239 years ago when our Nation was born. It is a situation we would have never considered 50 years ago or even 25 years ago that PEOPLE OF THE SAME GENDER SHOULD BE UNITED IN MARRIAGE. BUT WE ARE FACING IT HEAD LONG EVEN AS I SPEAK! THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT IS CONSIDERING THE QUESTION OF WHETHER PEOPLE OF THE SAME-SEX MAY RECEIVE A LICENSE TO MARRY! BY THE END OF THIS MONTH WE WILL KNOW HOW THE COURT HAS DECIDED!

  • Natural Disasters and the Judgement of God

    by
     
    All around the world and here in America NATURAL DISASTERS and EXTREME WEATHER are becoming more
    and more prevalent. (News Paper Article). The question that comes before us is ARE THESE NATURAL DISASTERS AND
    EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS JUST A COINCIDENCE OR ARE THEY DESIGNED BY GOD TO GET OUR
    ATTENTION, TO WARN US OF IMPENDING JUDGMENT, OR ACTUALLY A PART OF HIS JUDGMENT UPON
    INIQUITY? The answer to that question is not hard to figure out at all when we look into the Word of God, particularly to the
    Book of Nahum.

  • O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD

    by
     
    Many of us miss out on the blessings of the Lord because we have not taken the effort to get to know Him intimately. God wants us to get to know Him in an intimate fashion so that He can be evident in our lives but the choice to get to know Him is OUR’S. He is just WAITING FOR US TO TAKE THE STEPS to get to know Him intimately.

  • THE WOMAN WHO FEARS THE LORD

    by
     
     Ever since the rise of the "WOMENS' LIBERATION MOVEMENT" it appears that the idea of what a woman is has changed in the thoughts of the world. God made the woman to be honored, respected and cared for, but the "WOMENS' LIBERATION MOVEMENT" has made her out to be less than what God intended into an independent, self-sufficient, powerful and sometimes arrogant person who, at times, has expressed the lack of a need for men.

  • A Sincere Devotion to the Local Church

    by
     
    In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s there was a movement among Christianity called “THE JESUS PEOPLE.” They were the Christian version of the “HIPPIES” and had some interesting views about the Bible and the Local Church. Many of them came to the conclusion that the Local Church was not necessary and thus their commitment to the “ORGANIZED CHURCH” was extremely limited. Even after the days of “THE JESUS PEOPLE” such an attitude toward the Local Church has continued in the minds of some and consequently the commitment to the Local Church is not high among certain believers in Jesus Christ.

  • A GROWING PRACTICE OF PRAYER

    by
     
    As we continue our study in “THE DISCIPLINE OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH” we come to another tremendous component included in our SPIRITUAL LIFE and that is A GROWING PRACTICE OF PRAYER. Recognizing that any relationship will grow based upon the level of communication between those involved (husband and wife; friend with friend; employer with employee, etc.), it is therefore obvious that OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WILL NEVER GROW PROPERLY IF WE ARE WEAK IN THE PRACTICE OF PRAYER.

  • A CHEERFUL ATTITUDE OF GIVING

    by
     
     One of the CLEAR INDICATORS of SPIRITUAL GROWTH is maintaining a CHEERFUL ATTITUDE OF GIVING UNTO THE LORD. Now that statement itself may be enough to cause some Christians to wiggle in their seats, but it is true. In 2 Corinthians chapters 8 and 9 where the Word of God teaches us principles of FINANCIAL GIVING, verses 5, 10, and 11 imply that SPIRITUAL GROWTH RESULTS IN INCREASED FINANCIAL GIVING.

  • A GROWING LOVE FOR GOD

    by
     
    One of the clear INDICATORS OF OUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH is that of A GROWING LOVE FOR GOD. Often we fail to keep a close account of our SPIRITUAL GROWTH and before long we find that we have drifted from God. But when we have a GROWING LOVE FOR GOD we will know it because we will experience it and will therefore be able to have no doubts of our CONTINUAL SPIRITUAL GROWTH. So, WHAT DOES A GROWING LOVE FOR GOD LOOK LIKE? Consider the words of Christ in Mark 12:28-34.

    The SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST has been a subject of discussion ever since Jesus said in Revelation 22:20, "SURELY I COME QUICKLY." At times it has even been a controversial subject because of the way different people approach the scripture. As with any topic of scripture, THE PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST WILL ONLY BE RECEIVED WHEN ONE APPROACHES THE WORD OF GOD LITERALLY...THAT IS...GIVING TO EVERY WORD OF SCRIPTURE THE SAME MEANING USED IN NORMAL ORDINARY USAGE UNLESS THE CONTEXT SUGGESTS OTHERWISE.

    Today is THE SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE SUNDAY all across America. In fact this entire week, sandwiched between this Sunday and next is referred to as THE SANCTIFY OF HUMAN LIFE WEEK and on January 22nd rallies, marches, meetings and services will be held with the intent of praying for and encouraging the reversal of the 1973 SUPREME COURT DECISION, ROE V. WADE, THAT LEGALIZED ABORTION. (I remind you that in America, even though abortion is legal, it is still immoral and sinful). How sad it is to consider that since 1973 literally MILLIONS OF INNOCENT LIVES HAVE BEEN KILLED DUE TO ABORTION!
