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,

Wells Without Water

In different parts of the Bible, God is very plain and firm when it comes to the attitudes and behaviors of those that live sinful lifestyles. Often times, along with the descriptions of their transgressions, there is a foretelling of the punishment that awaits those that will not repent. One of those places of Scripture

The Comfort of the LORD

Each person needs encouragement, motivation, and comfort from time to time. That includes Christians. Even though we are blessed tremendously, we are not immune to the effects of the enormous amount of evil and sadness in the world. With that being true, where do we turn when those things rear their heads? While writing one

Another Serving of ‘Let Us’

It was not very long ago that I wrote an article titled “Did You Eat Your ‘Let Us’”. The premise was that the “eating” of “let us” was a play on words. Instead of eating real lettuce, the idea was to introduce some things that a Christian should include in his life. The main texts

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,

Helping Our Erring Brethren

The fact that Christians commit sins is clearly taught in Scripture. John wrote, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we

The Axe is Laid Unto the Root

When studying the Bible, one learns that under the Law of Moses there was one select group that was considered “God’s people”. That group is known as the Israelites/Jews. By being of the physical seed line of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, some had come to behave as if they were spiritually untouchable. That mistake is

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
