THIS IS THE WAY, WALK YE IN IT—Isaiah 30:21

It is absolutely essential in the Christian life that we know the Lord’s voice and are certain that He is the one leading us. Everyone is so busy these days and we have so many ‘time saving devices’ or, at least, that is what we are told. Television brings the news instantly, Automobiles and airplanes are so fast and convenient for travel and phones and pagers save even all that travel time. So, why are we so busy, having […]

HE MUST INCREASE—John 3:30

There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of short phrases in the Bible that go a long way toward describing the whole of the gospel message as given by Christ and the apostles. John the Baptist offered one of those when he states the “He must increase but I must decrease.” That very powerful doctrine, if I may call it that, has been perverted, disguised and abused by many who call themselves Christians. Whether we have taken the time to become […]

THERE WE SAW THE GIANTS—Numbers 13:33

The Lord led the children of Israel to the promised land in direct answer to their prayers, but when the they saw the giants they were afraid and refused to go in. There is a very simple and straight forward spiritual lesson to be learned here. As we travel the Christian way in this life we are required to overcome the giants in our life. It’s not an option; it’s an imperative at least if one expects to experience […]

THE MERCY OF GOD—PSALMS 136

Just as there are physical laws of nature such as, “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”, there are spiritual laws like, “the wages of sin is death”. These laws were established by God at creation and are unchangeable, except for His mercy. From the time that Christ was on earth He and his followers have continued to overrule nature by the power and mercy of God in the healing of the sick and the changing […]

INSTANT OBEDIENCE—Numbers 13 & 14

Almost everyone is familiar with the account surrounding the Israelites when they came to Kadesh-barnea. They had been in the wilderness only a short time and the Lord intended to send them into the promised land. Moses had sent spies to see what they would find and they, except for Joshua and Kaleb, brought back a discouraging report. The people, then, murmured against Moses and Arron and refused to go into the land because of the giants that lived […]

REND YOUR HEART, NOT YOUR GARMENTS –Joel 2:13

The Old testament book of Joel is similar to other prophetic books in that it is a warning to the people of Israel about God’s coming judgement. They had become prosperous and complacent, they took God for granted, became self-centered and idolatrous. Does this ring a bell? It is a condition that has repeated itself before the time of Joel and after even unto today. Many times the Lord has warned about this and called His people back to […]

AN EASY THING FOR THE LORD—2 Kings 3:18

It is recorded in 2 Kings that the king of Moab, who had been paying a tribute of 100,000 lambs each year to King Joram of Israel, rebelled and refused to continue to pay. So King Joram joined forces with King Jehoshaphat of Judah and the king of Edom and the three countries marched against Moab. When they met in the wilderness of Edom they realized that they had not planned properly and there was no water for their […]

MYSTERY OF INIQUITY—11 Thes. 2:7

No one knows precisely how and why evil came into being in God’s perfectly created universe. It’s a mystery that man may never totally understand until after the great day of the Lord and His coming. We do know from Scripture, however, that Lucifer, the devil, was found to have pride in his heart, desired to be god and was cast out of heaven. Further, he would give power to a ‘man of sin’ ‘antichrist’ who would appear after […]

THE POWER OF THE SPOKEN WORD—John 1:1

The Word of God is not simply a written record of what God has done in the past and a guideline for living today. God did not speak once and then lie dormant for the next several thousand years and let man fair as best he could. The Bible is the written Word of God and because it is written it is confined by paper and ink and does not, in itself, possess the infinite power of God. The […]

WHO ARE THE REAL CHRISTIANS?—Matt. 5:3-9

The sermon on the mount in Matthew chapter 5 gives us a clear picture of the difference between the true Christian and the man of the world. They are, in fact, at opposite ends of the spectrum and it is the reason why the real Christian has stood out like a sore thumb throughout history. And the more one stands out, apart from the group, the more he is the brunt of ridicule and persecution.

In the world we find […]
