APRIL 2, 2015—THE GREAT DECEPTION—11 Thessalonians 2: 3-4

History records that the intense persecutions of Christians began at the time of Christ and has continued, tpo one degree or another to this day. Even as early as the 7th century when the first Pope was elected and Mohammad was initiating the Islamic faith, true believers began to identify the source of their problems as the antichrist Pope and false prophet Mohammad. Tens of millions of Christians were martyred during the dark and middle ages. If […]

APRIL 1, 2015—PRAYER THAT WORKS—Psalms 62: 8

Prayer is an activity and as such must be voiced, however, it is more powerful and effective if it is a true attitude of the heart, for it allows one to obey in the areas of ‘praying without ceasing’, ‘importunity’ and ‘fervency’. These are things that our Lord asked of us but they cannot be rotely duplicated in reciting prayers. anymore than a young man can say all the correct things to his prospective wife, that pack power, […]

MARCH 31, 2015—THE IRONY OF THE TRUTH—11Corinthians 6: 10

The real truth is spiritual and stands in direct opposition to the natural man. As such the spiritual world is the substance while the physical is the shadow. This is a concept that we humans find almost impossible to embrace except for the grace, enlightenment, wisdom and mercy of God. The key verse describes the Christian “as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.” Further […]

MARCH 30, 2015—STRUGGLING IN PRAYER—Mark 14: 18

For many it is hard to understand why a healthy prayer life is so difficult to maintain. There seems to be so many roadblocks like finding the time, avoiding the interruptions, keeping our minds focused on what we know we should pray for, and even being importune and fervent in our approach to the Lord. Or it may be the fact that sometimes doubt has been placed in our minds as to whether He will answer anyway?

But as […]

MARCH 27, 2015—THE SALT OF THE EARTH—Matthew 5: 13

For the true and faithful believer, the Christian life is love, peace, rest, joy and enlightenment. It is exciting and rewarding and is all that God promises and much more. No one who has experienced this personal relationship with the Lord would willingly give it up, often not even in the face of death.

There is, however, another side of this Christian life that we must all be aware of and that is “All that will live […]

MARCH 26, 2015—SPECK IN YOUR BROTHERS EYE—Matthew 7: 3

It has been said that we live in a “It’s not my fault” generation. The criminal says that someone offended him or made him do it so it’s not his fault. The unscrupulous businessman says the buyer should beware and have checked the product more carefully, it’s not his responsibility. A lawyer files suit against anyone and everyone near the complainant that has money to be had, claiming to serve his client It’s not his […]

MARCH 25, 2015—WHERE THERE IS NO VISION—Proverbs 29: 18

The King James version states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” while the Revised Version says, “Where there is no vision, the people cast off restraint”. Oswald Chambers has apply stated that there is a great difference between following an ideal or following a vision. An ideal has no real inspiration while a vision does. What we have today in mainstream Christianity is millions of people trying to follow an ideal, trying to do what it […]

MARCH 24, 2015—WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION—Philippians 2: 12

When considering the subject at hand one must be very careful to not think for one minute that we, man, have the power to acquire, earn or facilitate in any way, our own salvation or new life in Christ. It is a gift! And only the Lord, Himself, knows when and if that LIFE should be given. We can, however, accept that gift or reject it. For those who accept, the recipient of that New Life […]

MARCH 23, 2015—BORN AGAIN—John 3: 7

My father was the pastor of a holiness church, Nazarene, and alter calls were offered weekly. Most of the preaching tended toward the “get saved or go to hell, maybe tonight” and like most guilty folks, especially teenagers, I made my way to the alter almost every week, to get my ticket punched to avoid hell fire and brimstone. By the time I left home for college, I was ripe to rebel big time, and I […]

MARCH 20, 2015—I HAVE SET WATCHMEN—Isaiah 62: 6-7

“I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, and give Him no rest till he establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” How much time have we Christians, as modern watchmen on the wall, spent in serious intercessory prayer for those in this world who are in sin or those hurting for […]
