Gospel Opportunities In Evil Days

Is there anybody who would deny that these are evil days? We are up against the organized, mobilized, demonized forces of hell, and it comes in every way. Sometimes it is a frontal attack. Sometimes it is very subtle. If you don’t know there is a war raging today, you are deaf, dumb and blind to spiritual things. But even though there is a war waging, there has never been a greater opportunity to preach the gospel of Jesus than right now. There is mo... Read More

Filled With The Holy Spirit

Ephesians 5:18-21 says, “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.” When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you are controlled by the Holy Spirit – y...

Christians In The Workplace

Ephesians 6:5-8 says, “Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eye service, as men-pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.” Th...

Overcome Worldliness

When we say someone is “wordly,” we are saying this person loves the world and the things in this world more than God. The love of the Father is not in them. Suppose you’re driving and you notice the oil light blinking red on your dashboard. What do you do? Take a hammer and break the light? No! The light is a warning that your engine is out of oil. To solve the problem, you add oil to the engine, right? Of course. Now if you are worldly, warning signs w... Read More

All Of Me

There was an evangelist of yesteryear named Wilbur Chapman. One day he was talking to William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army.Chapman asked Booth, “General Booth, God has used you in a great way. What is the secret of God’s use of you?” Booth moved the hair out of his face, looked at Chapman with his piercing eyes and said, “There have been men with greater brains than I, men with greater opportunities; but from the day I got the poor of Lond...

Refusing Your Pardon

One of the strangest stories ever told is a true story that happened in 1829. George Wilson was sentenced to be hanged in the state of Pennsylvania for murder. President Andrew Jackson pardoned Wilson (for what reason, I do not know). They took that pardon to Wilson and said, “The President of the United States has pardoned you. You will not hang.” Wilson said: “I refuse the pardon.” As a result, Wilson was hung by the neck until d... Read More

Inner Strength

In past years, I had a friend named Paul Anderson. Paul was the strongest man in the world—literally! On one occasion, he lifted 6,270 pounds off the ground with his back. He was the strongest man on earth, but he died at 61 years of age. Isaiah 40:30 says, “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall.” This verse is talking about you and me. All human strength will utterly, ultimately fail, but the Bib... Read More

Losing Your Soul For Nothing

Suppose someone approached you and said, “I have the ability to give you all the wealth, power and pleasure this world has to offer, but there is a price. I want you to give me your little finger. Just get it surgically removed and all this is yours!” Would you do it? Now let’s suppose that he did not ask for your little finger; suppose he wanted your ability to hear instead. You will never hear another sound, but you can have everything... Read More

Faith...Taking God At His Word

What is faith? Faith is not a hunch. Faith is not positive thinking. Faith does not believe everything will work out. Faith is not responding in emotion or feeling to miracles and signs. Faith does not simply believe that God can. Faith knows that God will. Real faith is death to doubt. Faith is taking God at His word. It is dumb to discouragement. It is blind to impossibilities. It knows that God will. Now this is the kind of faith we need. Romans 5:1-2... Read More

The Principle Of Obedience

The greatest principle is that of obedience to God, and it always takes priority over the lesser principle of obedience to men. You can find examples of this throughout the Bible. If they told me not to preach anymore, I’m just going to keep on preaching! They may take off my head, but I’m going to keep on preaching because God has told me to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And if that’s disobedience, so be it! The Pharaoh in Moses&r... Read More
