One of You is a Devil! - Published on September 9, 2021
..."Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?" - 2 Corinthians 13:5     Self-examination is a necessary—but difficult work.     Self-examination is the setting up a court in conscience and keeping a register there, that by strict scrutiny a man may know how things stand between God and his own soul. By a serious scrutiny of our he...

Judas the Preacher! - Published on September 9, 2021
..."If you know these things—you are blessed if you do them." - John 13:17     To obey the truth, and not to know it—is impossible.      To know the truth, and not obey it—is unprofitable.      For, "Not everyone who says unto me, 'Lord, Lord' shall enter into the kingdom of heaven—but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven." Saving ...

Only Two Families Inhabit Earth! - Published on September 9, 2021
...    In principle,      in taste,      in habit,      in desire,     in eternal destination—      they are as separate as . . .       light from darkness,       heat from cold,       life from death,       Heaven from Hell.      There is the serpent's seed.      There is the heaven-born race.   ...

I Know This — and I Know That! - Published on September 9, 2021
..."In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice: Ha! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? I know who You are — the Holy One of God!" - Luke 4:33-34  "Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting: 'You are Christ the Son of God!'

Another Gospel - Published on September 8, 2021
...    From time to time there arises a debate on what constitutes “another gospel.”  We all know that there are differences among true and honest believers over various doctrines. When do these differences cross the line from mere differences to heresy? When must we cry, “That is another gospel!?” The answer is so simple that there should never again be a debate on the issue. It is “another gospel” when the message is of “another J...

The Voice of the Son of God - Published on September 8, 2021
...    God is a sovereign agent; his sacred Spirit bloweth when and where it listeth; “he will have mercy on whom he will have mercy.” Saul is taken, but, as far as we know to the contrary, his fellow-travelers are left to perish in their sins. They heard a voice, a confused noise, but not the articulate voice of him that spake to Saul, and therefore remained unconverted. Thus it is now under the word preached: many, like Saul’s companions, are sometimes so struck with t...

It Please the Lord to Bruise Him - Published on September 8, 2021
...“It pleased the Lord to bruise Him.”  – Isaiah 53:10     The death of Christ pleased every attribute of the Father.  The death of Christ pleased God’s wisdom. The death of Christ enables God to be both just and justifier.  The death of Christ pleased God’s justice.   Christ suffered for the sin of His people until the debt was paid in full. The death of Christ pleased God’s mercy and grace. ...

How to Stay Joyful In God’s Plan When Things Are Going Horribly - Published on September 8, 2021
...    I have been cast into despair. Truly. I have never had something make me so utterly emotional in my life. It is hard to think about this topic or discuss it without bringing tears to my eyes.      So here it is:      In January, Andrew and I got pregnant with a little ball of joy that never came to fruition. Then we got pregnant again this past month to another baby who will never see the light. When we lost our first baby, I felt fine-ish. I was...

We Stand With - Published on September 8, 2021
...    We stand with the demoniac who is a cutter and is out of his mind because we know a demoniac who Jesus clothed and gave his mind back. Mark 5:1-20     We stand with the woman caught in adultery because we know a woman caught in adultery that Jesus did not condemn. John 8:1-11     We stand with the hustlers and crooks because know a man, a wee little hustler who Jesus went home with and saved. Luke 19:1-10     We stand with the publicans becaus...

True Colors - Published on September 8, 2021
...    It has been said that you'll never know someones true colors until something bad happens. Perhaps, but what's really going on there?     My true colors are many times as much a surprise to me as they are to you. When life falls apart and so do I, something gets unveiled in me, I get to know things about myself that I sometimes wish I didn't know. So do you.     Imagine if I were to face everything you could throw at me and still never lost it, ...

He Must Have the Preeminence - Published on September 8, 2021
...“In all things he might have the preeminence.” (Col. 1:18)     The Lord Jesus Christ must have the preeminence in all things. In our faith Christ must have the preeminence to such a degree that ALL of our trust is in Him. It is not even worth considering trusting in anything we do in the flesh. Christ must have the preeminence in our preaching. Christ and Him crucified is the only subject of our preaching. No other subject is worth preaching about. Christ must have the p...

Assurance - Published on September 8, 2021
...    Assurance based upon personal holiness, personal graces, and personal works is nothing but self-righteous presumption. Lack of assurance based upon the lack of those things is also self-righteousness. True assurance is simple faith, trusting Christ alone for every particle of salvation and eternal acceptance with God....

The Tongue - Published on September 8, 2021
...“Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth of great things. Behold how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and sitteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full o...

Do Not Be Grieved, For the Joy of the Lord Is Your Stength - Published on September 7, 2021
...Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. - Nehemiah 8:10     As we continue in our walk of faith, we will at times find ourselves tempted to be discouraged and also disappointed in many different things.  And this is a daily thing, at least for me.  When I find myself committing sin, over and over and over again, it never seems to end.  I'm tempted to be discouraged.  But the Lord reminds me that all that sin - even future...

A Man After God's Own Heart - Published on September 7, 2021
