Accepting the Word

 Most religions have professional clergy that facilitate the requirements of the religion to the common people. In Judaism the priest offered the sacrifices that covered sins. The eastern religions have priests that serve a similar role. In some Christian sects a priest is necessary to absolve sins and administer sacraments. However, the Bible teaches that [...]

You’re Fired

Donald Trump made this phrase popular on his TV show, "The Apprentice." Each week contestants would compete with others on teams or individually till only one champion remained and was hired as an apprentice by Trump's Company. The major point of interest to the audience was who would be fired and why. Mr. Trump and [...]

The Dallas Statement

The Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel (or the Dallas Statement) is a statement of faith, drafted in the summer of 2018 in Dallas, TX by a group of evangelicals led by John MacArthur, in response to how certain evangelicals have drifted away from the Christian Gospel towards a social gospel, the latter being [...]

The Perfect You

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." (Psalm 139: 14). Scripture acknowledges the wonder creator God incorporated into the human being. Even so, our fallen human nature in this fallen world full of corruption is far from perfect. Mankind's legacy on earth is [...]

God The Father

"Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit. For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as [...]

World In Decline

It is quite easy to observe the decline of this world's system. It can be quite interesting to remark and analyze the nuances of its encroachment and outright attack upon truth and righteousness. I have written about certain of these aspects, but lately, I've been convicted regarding the virtue of such pursuits. As American citizens [...]

Humility

This is the most powerful state of being for the Believer. It is the key to unlock the door of God's will. Yeshua took on the form of a servant and humbled himself. He taught us, "The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who [...]

What the Bible Says

I was visiting my ninety-seven year old father-in-law and he was telling me about the old man who was cutting his lawn at that time. He interjected, "He speaks in Jibber-jabber." I paused offering a quizzical expression, to which he added, "We used to call them Holy Rollers." I just said, "Oh", as there are [...]

The Thwarting of the Wicked

Treasures gained by wickedness do not profit, but righteousness delivers from death. The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry, but he thwarts the craving of the wicked. Proverbs 10:2-3. For to the one who pleases him God has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he has given the business of gathering and collecting, [...]

Give Me Jesus

The Hiding Place, by Corrie ten Boom is one of my favorite books and movies. My friend likes it perhaps more than I and we have had great fellowship discussing its lessons of God's love in the midst of horrific unjust circumstances. I have walked in the courtyard at Yad Vashem where a tree memorializes [...]

New Life

Perhaps the most current, tangible, widespread and ongoing evidence of the truth and power contained in the message of the Bible is the transformation experienced by every believer. It is described therein, by Yeshua Himself in a conversation with Nicodemus, a zealous religious leader who admitted to Yeshua, " 'Rabbi, we know that you are [...]

Highest Evangelical Outreach

Just recently, Alice Johnson was pardoned and released from prison and gave a stirring speech thanking God and President Trump. She said that her time in prison was not wasted and that God knew her name. Many prisoners come to faith while incarcerated. You might be surprised at this, but it's true. God is working [...]

World History (Or a Part Distinctly Unique)

Deuteronomy Chapter Four can only be described as such, because it denotes the basis for civilization, God's law; the centrality of Israel as God's chosen nation, inseparably including, Yeshua Messiah, and the believers who through Him are part of Israel; prophecy regarding the future redemption of Israel, their dispersion and regathering into the land, forever [...]

Shaking Off Shackles

Do you have bad thoughts? Discouraging thoughts about yourself and others. Do you see things around you that bring grief to your inner being or turmoil to your mind? Do you have memories that bring regret, sorrow, or pain from events, encounters, missed opportunities, or failures? The mind is a battlefield for your soul. When [...]

Least in the Kingdom

"Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 5: 19). To set aside what the Lord has commanded and to teach [...]

The Intercession of God

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22:31-32.  "Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit [...]
