Submit, Resist, Draw, Cleanse, and Purify – Part One

The book of James has been called the Proverbs of the New Testament.  The reason for such is the great amount of wisdom and knowledge that can be gained from a study of it.  Through simple and easy to understand statements, James instructs the child of God on various issues.  Take for instance the following

The Beauty Of The Body Of Christ

When one does a study of the church, he will find that God uses different synonyms to refer to it.  On one hand, the Lord acknowledged that the church and the kingdom are the same thing.  “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church;

Yes, It Is Still There

When writing to the church in Corinth, the apostle Paul dealt with many problems and errors that existed in that congregation. One specific issue involved a son and his father’s wife. The record of this teaching is found in First Corinthians chapter five. Paul did not “beat around the bush” with this issue. He got

The Coming Of The Lord

I cannot tell you how many times that I have either read or heard of someone claiming to know when the Lord is coming back. Many religious people have followed teachers that predicted certain dates, but all have been wrong. Most of the time, problems come from misunderstanding certain Scriptures. In particular, a lot of

A Good Work

The twenty first century has many threats that can hinder, harm, and harass the church of Christ. In the modern society, sin is not only accepted, but encouraged.

Never Compromise

The Bible is full of many great examples and encouragements from by gone years. One of those accounts details the tremendous courage and resolve of three young Jewish men named Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (Dan. 1:6-7). It is possible that you know them better by their Babylonian names of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These Jewish

One of the duties of a prophet was to be a sort of “spokesperson for God”. To further clarify, prophets would receive revelation from God, and then the prophets would tell such to people. This is important to understand for the remainder of this article. The reason is that we will be introduced to a

Stablished In The Faith

When Paul penned what we today call the book of Colossians, he was struggling inside over the fact that he had not seen those brethren in person. He wrote, “For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen

What Will It Be Like?

Often times, mankind fears the unknown. Being ignorant about a certain thing seems to amplify the apprehensiveness. With that being stated, many people do not understand what it is going to be like after we die. Granted, we are limited in the amount of information that has been revealed to us by God, but we

The Words Of The Preacher

After years of studying God’s Word, I am still amazed at the depth of knowledge that is contained therein. Even though it has been almost two thousand years since Its completion, the Bible is just as relevant as if it were written today. The New Testament instructs modern man how that he should live during
