It Shall Be Perfect - Published on May 26, 2020
...    The voice from the cross did not summon men to do, but to be satisfied with what was done, “It is finished.”  The sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ is the only perfect thing which has ever been presented to God on man’s behalf.  “It shall be perfect to be accepted, there shall be no blemish therein”  (Leviticus 22:21)....

A Believer is a Mystery - Published on May 26, 2020
...    The believer is a mystery to others and to himself, also.  He is sanctified, yet he feels himself to be the chief of sinners.  He loves God’s law, yet he wrestles with an inward desire to have his own way.  He has great sorrow and heaviness of heart over others, yet he rejoices in the Lord always. His spirit longs to be with Christ, yet his flesh clings to the earth.  He knows that he is secure in Christ, yet he examines his faith conti...
Doctrines Exceedingly Distasteful - Published on May 26, 2020
...    Man’s entire apostasy and death in sin, so that he cannot save himself, and God’s entire supremacy, so that He saves whom He will, are doctrines exceedingly distasteful to human pride.  But they are Scriptural.  Why was one thief saved and the other lost?  “Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in Thy sight” (Matt. 11:25-27).  God was not bound to save the one and He had power enough to have saved the other, and neith...

A Trumpet of Alarm - Published on May 25, 2020
...    My dear brothers and sisters, these words are intended to awaken, alert, and hopefully alarm you to urgent prayer and action.  Satan is waxing bold in these days.  Never since man’s fall, never since the Garden of Eden has Satan been in such a paradise.  Satan and his preachers have the ear of the masses in these days in which we live.  Arminian, free-will, human works religion is rampant, being the norm of the day.  Consequently, there is no lie, no ...

The Old and New Man - Published on May 25, 2020
...    In Romans chapter 7 we have two natures identified which are in every believer. One is called “sin that dwelleth in me”, the other is described as wanting to do good, and as not having done the evil that the other does (7:20). One is said to serve the law of God, and the other, the law of sin. Here they are called flesh and spirit. Those who walk after the Spirit are not sinless, because they are still flesh also. But neither does sin have dominion over them, because, b...

The Sovereignty of God - Published on May 25, 2020
...    There is no attribute more comforting to His children than that of God’s sovereignty. Under the most adverse circumstances, in the most severe trials, they believe that sovereignty has ordained their afflictions, that sovereignty over-rules them, and that sovereignty will sanctify them all. There is nothing for which the children ought more earnestly to contend than the doctrine of their Master over all creation, the kingship of God over all the works of His own hands, the th...

License to Sin? - Published on May 25, 2020
...    Free grace no more makes a person want to sin than health makes a person want to get sick again. The notion of sovereign grace giving people a license to sin is the foolish excuse of Pharisees who are not willing to give up their own righteousness....

Another Gospel - Published on May 25, 2020
...I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel. - Gal1:6     If the world will not come to Christ, if the people of our “enlightened” age will not accept the gospel of Christ, the wisdom of the world tells us that we must make Christ more acceptable, we must tone down his teachings, that we must take the offence out of the gospel. Such foolishness we have come to expect from self- serving, man-pleasing reli...

Great Plainness - Published on May 25, 2020
...“Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech.” - 2 Corinthians 3:12     I see a lot of men who claim to preach the Gospel of God’s grace in Christ Jesus, involved in a lot of hairsplitting confusion and debating of complicated irrelevancies. Thank God for those who, by His grace and power, preach the clear, plain simplicity that is in Christ Jesus. If little children cannot understand (intellectually) your gospel, then your gospel is w...

He Hath God's Ear - Published on May 25, 2020
...    Christ who is Mediator, is near unto God, and as near unto us, the Father hath Called, Chosen, Anointed and Accepted of him in our behalf; he can sympathize with us, he knows our Infirmities, and he hath always God's Ear, and God's Heart, and represents us, and our Cause to the Father....

The Importance of Doctrine - Published on May 25, 2020

The Most Monstrous Lie - Published on May 25, 2020
...    Like Muslims we assume that God will judge us “on balance.” If our good deeds outweigh our bad deeds, we will arrive safely in heaven. But, alas, if our evil deeds outweigh our good ones, we will suffer the wrath of God in hell. We may be “marred” by sin but in no wise devastated by it. We still have the ability to balance our sins with our own righteousness. This is the most monstrous lie of all....

Everything that Happens to us is Good - Published on May 25, 2020
...    If God is able to make everything that happens to us work together for our good, then ultimately everything that happens to us is good.  We must be careful to use the word ultimately. On the earthly plane things that happen to us may indeed be evil… Yet God in His goodness transcends all these things and works them out to our good.  For the Christian, ultimately, there are no tragedies. ...

The Reason for Election - Published on May 25, 2020

Miracle of Grace - Published on May 25, 2020
...    Every saved sinner is a miracle of grace. The Lord will make every vessel of mercy know, feel, and acknowledge this—for He will give him from time to time such deep discoveries of his sin, as will convince him beyond all question that nothing but the rich, sovereign, distinguishing, and superabounding grace of God can save his soul from the bottomless pit!...

What Shall I Cry? - Published on May 25, 2020
...“What shall I cry?”   - Isaiah 40:6     In the text above we have in the spirit of prophecy the last of God’s prophets asking of God His message.  What was he told to cry?  He was told to cry two truths.  First, he is to cry of the absolute weakness, and inability of man to restore himself into the image of God.  “All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field.”&nbs...

The Gospel of Pure Grace - Published on May 25, 2020
...    After many years of studying and preaching, meditation and observation, I think the Lord is beginning to show me just a little something of what He and Paul meant by the “Offense of the cross” (Matthew 11:6; Galatians 5:6).     The message of the cross (Christ crucified - I Cor. 1:23; 2:2) is of such PURE GRACE, that once the gist of it is perceived, it will inevitable offend man’s pride. Like a “two-edged sword” (Heb. ...

The World and the Gospel - Published on May 25, 2020
...The world bears the Gospel a grudge because the Gospel condemns the religious wisdom of the world. Jealous for its own religious views, the world in turn charges the Gospel with being a subversive and licentious doctrine, offensive to God and man, a doctrine to be persecuted as the worst plague on earth.  As a result we have this paradoxical situation:  ...

Some Thoughts on Criticism - Published on May 24, 2020
...    We have all been guilty of being too critical toward others and we have all experienced the fires of criticism leveled against us. Here are some thoughts concerning being critical and being criticized.     Regarding being critical, may we always remember that what we criticize others for we are guilty of ourselves (Romans 2:1)!   Also remember, “With the same measure you meter withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38)&he...
