I know many of us were hoping we would get another chance, through the election, to turn this country around and stall off the impending and long over due intervention of Justice. The elections have caused us to see more clearly than ever, the terrible state of moral decay and blatant rebellion we are in as a nation, and we are sad. The mourning is appropriate, and actually a gift from God, that we ourselves will begin to take this ...Continue Reading →
I realize you may be as skeptical as you are sick to death of the gimmicks, the self helps and quick-fix promises made by churches and individuals claiming to represent Jesus Christ. You are as “turned-off” by the pony-ride, inflatable gospel as He is!! So, what are we going to DO about it?
The first order of business is to REPENT. We must admit we have used, abused and misused the testimony of Jesus Christ and His Gospel to sell everything from investment opportunities ...Continue Reading →
Because of the apostasy in the church, it is as hard to find the real Jesus in the church as it is finding real food in the grocery store. Many are disillusioned and wandering from teaching to teacher, trying to please a God they neither know nor like. Most have concluded that they will “do the best they can under the circumstances and take their chances”. What a freaky absurd approach to determining their eternal destiny and the daily care ...Continue Reading →
Living in these uncertain days has made us certain of one thing, Jesus Christ must come back. There seems to be no human solution to the complex problems and personal pain we are in. Our Government is broken as well as broke. The bottom line is not raising the debt ceiling or taxes or lowering spending or any magical combination of the two.
The bottom line is sincere and absolute repentance. We need the Revelation of Jesus Christ to understand the ...Continue Reading →
For some yesterday, May 21, 2011 was just an ordinary day, a day we either served the Lord Jesus Christ, or a day we frittered away on the things of this world. For others, this was supposed to be the Big Day. Homecoming didn’t happen. But that does not mean it won’t.
Actually, Jesus said He was coming in a day when we did not think He would. It will be an ordinary day. So, let us not worry about when ...Continue Reading →
All of us have heard some version of the story of the little boy sent out to watch his father’s sheep who called “wolf, wolf”, when there was no wolf. But just because there was no wolf, – at least not that day – the threat of there being any wolf at all soon faded from mind and the alarm lost its power to bring warning or help.
How many times have we heard the alarms of the Bible sounded without there being any apparent danger? ...Continue Reading →
Another scare about the date the world will end has been issued by those who may think they have heard from God, but do not know their Bibles. It says expressly that we do not know the day, May 21, 2011, or the hour, (Matt. 24:36). We, those of us who have ears to hear, will know the time and the season.
“Times” in the Bible often speak of years and “seasons”, would denote the time in the year. We all have our opinions about where ...Continue Reading →
Wow!! What’s happening out there? Earthquakes, wars, riots, bloodshed, lies, treachery and betrayal of countries by kings and citizens by their governments! The bigger question, however, may not be how did we get here, but where are we going and what are we going to do about dangerous place we are in?
Everyone will answer that differently. Some will try to get more involved in their church, or country, or make a shift in the direction they sense their moral ship is going. Others will continue to ...Continue Reading →
As good soldiers we must know what we believe in and how to “contend earnestly for the faith, (Jude 3). Let us begin with the basics. “”In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1).
“In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD was God.” ( Jo. 1:1). God spoke the worlds into existence through the WORD. Jesus Christ is the WORD of God incarnate. He is the “appointed heir ...
