Son Of Man And Son Of God

When a reader starts studying the New Testament, He will eventually learn that Jesus was known by different descriptive terms. One of which is the word Christ. That is simply a reference to Jesus being the anointed One of God. Then there are other terms like “the good shepherd”, “the door”, “the way”, “the truth”,

Keeping The Faith

It can rightly be said that faithfulness is absolutely essential for the salvation of man. In His letter to the church in Smyrna, Jesus stated, “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten

The Resurrection

The truth of Christianity hinges upon the legitimacy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus did not come out of the tomb triumphantly, then Christianity would be one of the biggest frauds in the history of mankind. However, the Word of God accurately states the following: “Now upon the first day of the week,

The Vanity Of Their Mind

When one studies the New Testament, he will find certain phrases that are very poetic. Take for instance the following passage in the book of Ephesians: “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind” (Eph. 4:17). There it is,

Keep On Keeping On

Have you ever stopped to think about how much of the Bible was written to advance endurance. There are many occasions where inspired penman took the time to write words of encouragement to children of God. Take for instance, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord,

Lord, To Whom Shall We Go?

The historical record does not end there though. After the departure of some of His disciples, “Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away” (John 6:67)? It was decision time for those men. Would they follow the multitude that turned away from the Lord, or would they continue to follow Him? On

A Dilemma

Are you familiar with what a dilemma is? Without having to retrieve a dictionary, let me try to define “dilemma” in simple and easy to understand terms. Imagine that you are presented with a decision that you have to make between two things. Unfortunately for you though, if you decide either way, you will have

The Yoke Of Bondage

It is disappointing that at this stage of human history, many people are truly ignorant of God’s Word. The average man on the street struggles with some of the most basic truths in Scripture. It is reminiscent of the time when Hosea lived. He wrote, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou

The Grace Of God

One of the simplest, but often misunderstood attributes of God is His grace. The Psalmist wrote, “…the LORD is gracious and full of compassion” (Psm. 111:4). That indicates that God bestows much on mankind that man does not deserve. If man received what he deserves, then mankind would have been destroyed a long time ago.

Faithful Unto Death

The life of a Christian is portrayed by Paul as a “warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18). As with any “warfare”, a Christian should understand that there is the possibility of casualties and deaths. Paul himself would live his life in such a way that his life was taken due to his faithfulness to God. Paul’s courage
