No Fear Of False Cults

False cults did not take our Lord by surprise and they ought not to take you by surprise because this world is full of false cults and apostate Christians. There are many who trudge to church Sunday after Sunday whose lives are not changed. And on top of that, they are twice-fold the children of hell because they are in false religions. I am amazed at how many people who were once in Bible-believing churches are drawn aside because they do not understand ... Read More

From Faith To Faith

Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.’ ” How is the righteousness of God revealed? From faith to faith. God gives you truth; you believe that truth; God gives you more truth. The reason some Christian... Read More

A Built-In Knowledge Of God

Did you know there is a built-in knowledge of God?  St. Augustine said, “The soul of man is restless until it rests in God.”  God made man to serve Him and to know Him, and until he does, he’s like a round peg trying to fit into a square hole.  Now, what is an atheist?  All atheists are not atheists because of intellectual problems.  They are atheists because of moral problems.  You may say, “But I know some brilliant people ...

Jesus, The Only Way

Here is a question for believers and unbelievers alike: Is God a righteous God? Is He a just God? If we put it in our terminology, Is God fair to let a person die and go to Hell who has never even once heard the name of Jesus? Can those who have never heard of Jesus go to Heaven some other way? I will let God answer those questions: Truth #1 – God is righteous. Psalm 50:6 says, “And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God is judge Himself.” ... Read More

No Retreat For The Christian

There is a story about some of Caesar’s soldiers who were warriors in a ship. They docked off the coast of Britain and planned to raid a small island. The villagers thought they could defend their land. They gathered sticks, pitchforks, rakes, rocks, and anything they could get. Then they started down the hill to meet these soldiers. They weren’t prepared for what they saw. The soldiers got out of their boat, turned around and set fire to it and shoved i... Read More

The Virgin Birth

Is the virgin birth incidental or is it mythological? No, it is ultimate and foundational truth. Your eternal destiny rises or falls on the virgin birth. Without the virgin birth you could not be saved. Why? Had Jesus been born of a natural birth, rather than a supernatural birth, He would have been a child of Adam, not a child of God. Had Adam been His father, He would have been a sinner because He would have had Adam’s nature. First Corinthians 15:22 s... Read More

To Them That Love God

Looking again at Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Do you know what encourages me about this verse? Others may be able to give more than I can give, sing or preach or serve better than I can, but there is no body on earth who can love God more than I can or you can. Many people may have more resources than you have. They may have more opportuni... Read More

Worshipping In The Spirit

Have you ever been in a worship service where people are trying to worship God in the flesh? It is like a circus. How tedious and tasteless it is. But hopefully you have been in worship services where those who are leading the worship are filled with God’s blessed Holy Spirit and the people are singing praises to God and worshipping God in spirit and in truth. John 4:24 says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in t... Read More

The Holy Spirit Is A Person

Ephesians 5:18 commands us to “be filled with the Spirit.” The Holy Spirit is not a substance or a thing—the Holy Spirit is a Person. When asked about the Messiah, Jesus said, “I am He” (John 4:26). If you saw me wearing a blue tie, you wouldn’t say, “It wore a blue tie.” You would say, “He had on a blue tie.” Don’t de-personalize the Holy Spirit. Don’t think of being filled with the Spirit as if you are some kind of a vessel and the Holy Spirit i... Read More

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
