The Consuming Fire

“Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God (Deuteronomy 4:23-29).” “Wherefore we […]

The Deepest Need of the Human Heart

Many churches are spending vast sums of treasure and tears trying to be relevant. That means being enough like the general culture to make people feel accepted and comfortable when they attend the services. The thought of being sidelined, or made not to matter to the larger culture, is unthinkable. The mantra is that unfamiliar […]

Who Is God?

The essence of unbelief is to believe everything. If everything is true, or has the potential of being true, then everything is false and has the potential of being false. If there is no objective truth … if all truth is subjective…based on “feelings,”  then there is no one standard for truth, and chaos reigns.  […]

Duck Dynasty And Satan’s Losing War

I have never seen Duck Dynasty. We don’t have A&E with our Dish package. :>) From what I can tell I would not agree with this family’s view of salvation. There seems to be a lot of talk about Jesus among them but baptism seems to be necessary for salvation as well. If that is […]

Learning Better the Love of God!

It is a bright Christmas morning. A mother is busy in the kitchen preparing Christmas dinner for her family. She glances out the window to the street and sees a taxi pull up in front of her house. Her son, who has been away for several years in the military, gets out of the back […]

A Word For Suffering Saints

2 Corinthians 1 1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:  2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed be […]

The Loser

Are you a loser? Have you lost your purity? Have you lost your self-respect? Have you lost your purpose in life? You are totally empty on the inside aren’t you? You live from day to day with no hope of ever being anything but the sinner you are now. Your life is lived totally for […]

Life Out Of Death

The Lord makes a promise and then often makes us wait for the fulfillment. He does this so that no one will get glory but Himself. Abraham received promises from God concerning a son. God waited until Abraham and Sarah were physically unable to make that promise come true in themselves. Then the Lord acted […]

The Book of Revelation and Apocalyptic Literature

The book of Revelation offers unique challenges when it comes to interpretation. One of the mistakes people commit when trying to  interpret this book is that they begin from a wrong perspective. Many people consider the book of Revelation a guide book for their future. They believe that the primary purpose of the book is […]
