MODERN DAY PROPHESY—Matt. 6:33

Prophesy (predicting the last days events) has become bid business. Some of those writing books and speaking on the subject are making millions of dollars and there are so many different interpretations out there. Everyone has a theory on who the antichrist and false prophet are or when the tribulation will take place, if it hasn’t already. Some place these events in the future and some say they already took place 2000 years ago. Another contention is the mark […]

HOLY SPIRIT, FIRSTFRUITS—Romans 8:23

The tripartite nature of God is, perhaps, one of the most difficult attributes of God to understand. How can One be in three parts and yet be one? Our human limitations dictate that we just accept that concept and leave it where it is. As we ponder the trinity, however, most everyone has a concept or a picture in his mind as to what God the Father and Jesus the Son are. Some have even painted pictures of the […]

THE WRITTEN WORD AND THE LIVING WORD

There are basically two schools of thought as to how God leads man and in large measure they seem to be irreconcilable, at least in our human thinking. There are variations to each of these but, by and large, they they consist of the following. The first is that God inspired His written word one time in the past through men of old and revelation has ceased. This ideal denies that man receives additional communication from God and that […]

LONGING FOR GOD—Ps. 63:1

Where is our longing for God? Young people are consumed with sports, activities and friends. Young married couples are busy establishing a career and striving for financial security. Middle age finds us accumulating wealth and as we get older we strive for free time to do the things we always wanted to do but didn’t have time for. For all ages we claim to search for God and all these things Oh, yes there is a dab of religion […]

NO FEAR—Ps. 111:10

I have seen a bumper sticker from time to time that reads “No Fear”. Now, I’m not sure what the person that placed it there means; whether it is that he is not afraid of any person, any thing or God. But, whatever the intention, it is defiant toward someone and it is not healthy, for fear is an important emotion especially when it comes to spiritual matters.

It is recorded in II Kings chapter 17 that the king of […]

THE SON ALWAYS SHINES

One thing we can be sure of is that the sun shines every day. It comes up at a certain time and you can count on it. For that reason when we built our new home we installed an off-grid solar electrical system. It was August when we first turned it on and it worked perfectly. The amp meter between the solar panels and the batteries began charging at 48 amps and we could run almost everything in the […]

EARS TO HEAR—Matt.11:15,Mark 4:9,Luke 8:8

“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear” (Matt.11;15) seems to be a rather strange statement. One might say, “Of course, if one has ears he is going to hear” but that is not necessarily so. The most difficult thing about proclaiming the gospel truth is that most do not hear. There are probably many reasons for this dilemma that could be talked about but if we can cut through all that conversation we come to one thing. […]
