The House That the LORD Built

Long ago, the Psalmist wrote, “Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Psm. 127:1). The great lesson is that with the LORD there is strength and security. Away from the LORD, there is vanity. This truth was

Time is No Factor

It is important to recognize that God is not limited by the subject of time. Oftentimes, human beings feel the crunch of deadlines or appointments. This has never been, nor ever will be, a problem for God. On the contrary, time would not even exist if God had not created the physical universe. “In the

The Kingdom Of God

Many sermons and articles have been written that correctly identify the kingdom and the church as the same thing (Matt. 16:18-19; Col. 3:17). That is not the intent of this article however. Instead, we are to examine two things that Jesus used to describe what the kingdom/church is like. First of all we find, “Then

The Children of Disobedience

It does not take long for one to read the writings of Paul and see his great love for the souls of men. On one occasion, Paul gave a strong warning to the Christians in Ephesus. He wrote, “For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater,

No Prophet Is Accepted In His Own Country

Early in the earthly ministry of Jesus, the Lord addressed a problem that hindered some from accepting the truth. After teaching in Galilee, the Bible records, “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for

God And Mammon

It is important to realize that God will not accept being secondary in any person’s life. The “first and great commandment” is to “…love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matt. 22:37). Yet, so many individuals have little to no time for God

Did You Wash Your Hands?

Can you recall when you were younger? Did you have a mother, or grandmother, that would often call you from your playing to come and eat lunch or supper? If you did, then I can imagine that some of you remember being asked, “did you wash your hands before you came to the table”. This

Vaccination Information

Have you ever tried to tell someone something important, but for whatever reason, the person seemed uninterested? If you have, then you can understand the frustration that comes with such. For generations, God had been telling the Israelites/Jews what would happen to them if they lived sinfully. Yet, time after time it seemed that those

Sound Doctrine

Perhaps you were sitting in a worship service or Bible class, when the preacher or teacher referred to something called “sound doctrine”. Were you confused as to what “sound doctrine” is? Were you curious to find out the answer? “Sound doctrine” is not hard to define or understand. First of all, the word “sound” is

Questions from God

Many years ago, when the Israelite people were still under the Law of Moses, God, through the prophet Micah, asked some interesting questions. “O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me” (Micah 6:3). As it is put in the preceding verse, “…the LORD hath a
