• THE MESSAGE OF THE APOSTLE PAUL IS OUR MODEL

    by
     
    In our study through 1 Corinthians we have learned that, FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE, HE HAS CHOSEN THE “FOOLISHNESS OF PREACHING” TO SAVE LOST SINNERS AND INSTUCT BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS IN THEIR SPIRITUAL LIFE. That mandate from God has NEVER CHANGED down through the years. In other words, GOD HAS NOT CHANGED HIS MIND ABOUT HOW TO REACH PEOPLE WITH BIBLICAL TRUTH.

  • THE WORK OF GOD AND HIS CHILDREN

    by
     
    The concept of “WORK” is found throughout the pages of scripture. From the beginning of creation mankind has the responsibility to maintain a “GOOD WORK ETHIC.” Adam and Eve had to take care of the Garden of Eden even before their fall into sin. The Word of God teaches in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 that if “ONE DOES NOT WORK HE SHOULD NOT EAT.”

  • SERIES - THE PERSECUTION OF GOD'S PEOPLE

    by
     
    One condition that has been around for many centuries is the PERSECUTION OF GOD’S PEOPLE. We read about it in the Bible. We read about it in history books. We even read about it in newspapers and see it on television these days. But yet, we often seem to PUSH IT ASIDE and say, “YES, I KNOW PERSECUTION IS A FACTOR, BUT IT WILL NEVER EFFECT ME.” Oh, we all may wish that to be true, but the fact is we all may really face persecution in the future. In July of 2013 I attended a pastors conference in California where we were told that “IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE MAJORITY OF YOU PASTORS WHO ARE HERE WILL SPEND SOME TIME IN GOVERNMENTAL HOUSING ONE OF THESE DAYS.”

  • CURSED WITH A CURSE

    by
     
    Recently we had the opportunity to study what the Bible has to say about TITHING. We learned clearly that WHEN WE TITHE, GOD BLESSES US GREATLY! But that is only a half of the lesson we need to learn about the tithe. THE OTHER HALF of the lesson is that WHEN WE REFUSE TO TITHE, GOD CURSES US GREATLY! In light of that, please allow me to give you a very serious but real fact. IF YOU ARE NOT TITHING NOW, YOU ARE CURRENTLY UNDER THE CURSE OF GOD! WHY? BECAUSE NOT TITHING IS ROBBING GOD!

    Salvation is the GREATEST GIFT EVER OFFERED TO MANKIND!  It is THE GIFT OF GOD to all sinners.  It is THE ONLY MEANS for the forgiveness of sins for all humanity.  It is THE KEY TO A LIFE that is worth living for all who receive it.  It is the DOOR TO HEAVEN for all who call upon the name of the Lord.

  • THE SURE ROAD TO THE BLESSING OF GOD - Tithing

    by
     
    Everyone wants a blessing from God. And yet, there are many Christians who really miss out on the easiest way of receiving God’s blessing. What way is that? THE WAY OF THE EASIEST BLESSING FOR THE CHRISTIAN AFTER SALVATION IS TITHING, OR GIVING UNTO THE LORD. If you tithe, you will know this as a personal fact as you have seen God work in providing a great blessing for you over the years. If you do not tithe, you really have no idea what we are talking about here. So, let’s observe Malachi 3:8-12 where God sets for the PRINCIPLE OF THE BLESSING OF THE TITHE.

  • THE PRIORITY OF PREACHING IN THE LOCAL CHURCH

    by
     
    The study of the New Testament Epistles will give clear insight on every principle that is to be practiced in and through the Local Church. It is in the New Testament Epistles that Church Truth is taught and thus all that is accomplished or attempted to accomplish in the Local Church should be derived from the pages of those Epistles. Now understand that this concept DOES NOT IN ANY WAY DEVALUE OR OFFSET THE OLD TESTAMENT, THE GOSPELS OR THE BOOK OF THE REVELATION! ALL SCRIPTURE IS FOR US AND IS RELEVANT FOR US TODAY!

  • THE NATION THAT BLESSES GOD WILL BE BLESSED BY GOD

    by
     
    We all love the song “GOD BLESS AMERICA.” And when Kate Smith sings it most of us have a huge spike in our PATRIOTISM. That particular song is in reality a prayer asking GOD TO BLESS AMERICA. Certainly all of us want God to bless America but the question is, CAN HE DO IT TODAY? There is NO DOUBT that God ha blessed America in the past. The book entitled, “THE 5000 YEAR LEAP” describes how things in the world went along just about the same for years until America was founded.

  • WHAT CAN CHRISTIANS DO TO MAINTAIN AMERICA

    by
     
    INTRO: Recently, along with a few other pastors and historians I was invited to Ukraine to participate in a SUMMIT OF INTERNATIONAL LEADERSHIP on developing a nation on biblical principles.  During that Summit I experienced something that I likened to the founding days of our nation (even though I was not there) where our founding fathers had the desire to build a nation on the BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES OF  JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES.  It was totally amazing for
    me to learn what some of the leaders of Ukraine wanted for their nation.

  • SPIRITUAL ENCOURAGMENT FOR THE GODLY FATHER

    by
     
    On this Fathers Day, as we honor our Fathers, particularly those who are GODLY FATHERS, we are going to consider from Psalm 78:1-8 SPIRITUAL ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE GODLY FATHER. I suspect that one of the greatest ways we can honor Fathers today is to give BIBLCIAL ENCOURAGEMENT on how they can be the GODLY FATHER OUR HEAVENLY FATHER DESIRES. Let’s observe the text.

  • WALKING BY FAITH

    We all know that the central part of the Christian life is WALKING BY FAITH?  But what does that really mean?

      WARNING: WALKING BY FAITH IS THE ONLY WAY TO PLEASE GOD.  WALKING WITHOUT FAITH  NOT ONLY DISPLEASES GOD, BUT IS AN ACT OF SIN.  Cp. Hebrews 11:6; Romans 14:23

  • THE SERIOUS EFFECTS OF SAME SEX MARRIAGE ON OUR CULTURE

    by

    Recently United States District Judge John Jones III struck down Pennsylvania’s Defense of Marriage Act.  A day later Governor Tom Corbett of PA indicated that he will not appeal the decision even though he personally is against same-sex marriage.  Immediately same-sex couples began to apply for licenses and marrying each other across PA.  How sad.  All of this will have negative ramifications on our culture if the DOMA is not appealed. The refusal to appeal the decision of Judge Jones has a three fold effect on our culture.

  • REMEMBERING THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR OUR FREEDOM

    by
     
    Today is one of the most blessed HOLIDAY WEEKENDS celebrated in THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! It is MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND. To many it is a time to get together for picnics with the family. To many it is the time to decorate the graves of those who have passed on before us (Decoration Day). To many it means the beginning of the summer season. To many it means the end of school for three months. Now those are all find and good, but NONE OF THE THINGS I MENTIONED IS THE REAL REASON FOR MEMORIAL DAY. MEMORIAL DAY IS THE TIME IN WHICH WE HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE GIVEN THEIR LIVES FOR OUR FREEDOMS IN AMERICA.

  • THE REALITY OF TRUTH

    by
    WHAT IS TRUTH? That question has been asked by many people many times over many years. Perhaps the most famous individual who asked that question was Pilate at Jesus’ trial in John 18:38 when he asked, “WHAT IS TRUTH? In that context Pilate was searching for the TRUTH ABOUT WHO JESUS CHRIST WAS. There was a time in the history of mankind when TRUTH MEANT SOMETHING SUBSTANTIAL AND LASTING.

  • DIVISIONS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST

    by
     
    One of the main reasons that cults in our day have had such an impact in the world is their UNITY. DISHARMONY IS NOT TOLERTED WITHIN THEIR RANKS! Though misguided and abused, such unity is attractive to many people who are tired of religious uncertainty and confusion. On the other hand, most Christians in fundamental churches have experienced DISUNITY AND SPLITS IN LOCAL CHURCHES down through the years. Such IS NOT HONORING TO GOD AT ALL but unfortunately quarrels are a part of life.

  • THE ACCOUNT OF THE LOST AXEHEAD

    by
    INTRO: Often in life we face situations that seem to be small and insignificant but in reality they may be extremely large and very significant! The difference between the two is not the size of the situation, but rather the perspective and the outcome of the situation. Such is the case of the biblical account before us. In reading about the PROPHECY STUDENT WHO LOST A BORROWED AXEHEAD in 2 Kings 6 we may first of all say, “THAT WAS NOT VERY SIGNIFICANT AT ALL.” But then, if we continue to consider the situation and understand that EVERYTHING MENTIONED IN THE WORD OF GOD IS SIGNIFICANT

  • THE EXAMPLE OF A GODLY MOTHER

    by
    Mothers Day is a very blessed day on the calendar when we focus on honoring some of the most precious people in the world…OUR MOTHERS. It is safe to say that MOTHERS HAVE HAD MORE POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON THEIR CHILDREN THAN ANY OTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. Teachers can educate children academically. Pastors can encourage children spiritually. Doctors can help children physically. Policemen can protect children personally. Relatives can love children greatly. But the ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO ALL OF THOSE THINGS TOGETHER IS A MOTHER! Since the days of Adam and Eve God’s plan for motherhood has been for EVERY MOTHER TO GIVE THEIR CHILDREN A SPIRITUAL EXAMPLE TO FOLLOW. BUT WHAT EXAMPLE CAN MOTHERS FOLLOW SO AS TO LIVE A LIFE OF GODLINESS? The answer to that question is relatively easy. The BEST PERSON TO A MOTHER TO PATTERN HER LIFE AFTER IS MARY, THE MOTHER OF CHRIST

  • THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST

    by

    CHRIST HAS RISEN!  HE IS RISEN INDEED! The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND!  To become even more specific, THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST IS THE CENTRAL THEME OF BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY.  WITHOUT THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST, CHRISTIANITY WOULD BE A FAKE, A FRAUD AND A FAILURE.  BUT JESUS CHRIST HAS RISEN…AND THAT IS A FACT!  The DOCTRINE OF THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST is not just a “passing thought” in the scripture, but rather is a doctrine emphasized OFTEN in the Word of God.  On this RESURRECTION SUNDAY, as most of us know the account of the Resurrection of Christ very well, let’s survey the Word of God tin order to gain some SIGNIFICANT FACTS about the Resurrection of Christ that will enable us all to have a GREATER APPRECIATION for THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

  • BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD

    by
     
    For centuries the Nation of Israel had been used to using LAMBS as a part of their God-Designed sacrificial system that atoned for their sin. Those LAMBS, even though they were without spot or blemish as an animal, were very inadequate to totally take away the sins of the people. In fact, those sacrifices ONLY covered the sins of the people while looking forward to the coming of the PROMISED MESSIAH who would offer the ultimate sacrifice that would completely remove the sin of those who believed. As we come into the text before us we see the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE TRUE LAMB OF GOD, JESUS CHRIST, WHO WAS SENT INTO THE WORLD TO PROVIDE THAT ULTIMATE SACRIFICE. That official announcement was made by the FORERUNNER OF CHRIST, JOHN THE BAPTIST. Let’s take a look at how the scene developed.

  • I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD

    by
     
    As we come to the conclusion of our service today we are going to focus on one more PHRASES that relates to the work of Christ on the Cross. It is found in John 10:11 where Jesus says, “I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD; THE GOOD SHEPHER GIVETH HIS LIFE FOR HIS SHEEP.” That statement sort of summarizes the work and the reason for which Jesus went to the cross.

  • CHRIST THE KING

    by
    Our hymn book includes a good number of songs that speak concerning the KINGSHIP OF CHRIST. For instance: “REJOICE THE LORD IS KING.” “CROWN HIM WITH MANY CROWNS.” “ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS’ NAME.” In addition to that, the Bible has a lot to say about the KINGSHIP OF CHRIST because in the future He will reign as KING over all the earth, and then throughout all of eternity! Jesus Christ indeed is KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! Having said that, there have always been those who have rejected the KINGSHIP OF CHRIST! The Jews rejected His KINGSHIP when He was on earth, and many refuse to recognize His KINGSHIP in our modern times. However, the Bible teaches that the time will come when EVERY ONE IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH WILL RECOGNIZE THE KINGSHIP OF CHRIST AND BOW BEFORE HIM IN HOMAGE, WORSHIP AND SUBMISSION. Today is Palm Sunday in which we look back to THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY OF CHRIST INTO JERUSALEM nearly 2000 years ago when He presented Himself as the KING OF THE JEWS! CHRIST’S KINGSHIP was rejected by most of the Jews then and consequently He was crucified on the CROSS OF CALVARY just a few days later. This morning we shall focus on what the WORD OF GOD says about CHRIST THE KING with intent that we all will submit to HIS KINGSHIP in worship, praise and service. HAVE YOU SUBMITTED TO THE KINGSHIP OF JESUS CHRIST?

    From time to time in Bible study one will come across a verse that really gets one’s attention because it says something profound about God.  Isaiah 12:2 is one of those verses.  Isaiah 12:2 is so RICH, so POWERFUL, so FULL, so DEEP with truth about God that is would take an eternity to expound upon it to any measure of completeness.  Let’s take a look at it today.

  • THE CALL OF THE CHRISTIAN

    by
     
    There is no doubt that the best thing a person can do is to TRUST JESUS CHRIST AS SAVIOR and become a Christian. The benefits and blessings of being a Christian are far beyond our ability to count, even if we had all eternity to do so. Some of the things we experience as Christians we never study, think of or hardly ever thing about. Other things we experience we may think of from time to time but do not put forth much effort to understand some of those things. One of the things most Christians have LITTLE UNDERSTANDING OF is the CALL OF THE CHRISTIAN. For instance, WHAT IS THE CALL OF THE CHRISTIAN? Or, WHAT IS THE CHRISTIAN CALLING? Is there any difference between the two? Perhaps many have never really thought that through too much. So, today as we continue in 1 Corinthians we shall focus on verse 9b or chapter 1 where the Word of God speaks of the CALL OF THE CHRISTIAN.

  • THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD

    by
     
    One of the UNFORTUNATE aspects of our society is that we live in a VERY UNFAITHFUL CULTURE. Too often we hear of situations where someone has made a commitment to another person only to change his mind, forget the commitment, or just decide not to do what was promised. This is done in every level of society from the personal to the family to the job to the church and to the government. Being faithful is a measure of integrity that God expects every one of His children to have.
