A Burning For God

September 27, 2020

      Burning in our Hearts for God   I’d like to ask you to think about something this morning.  Have you ever had a “burning in your heart” for anything?   It’s like all you have to do is just think about something, and this feeling comes over you.  Have you ever had that burning in your heart for another person?  Maybe it’s for a husband or a wife. …

Fear in the Present Day World – Part 1

September 12, 2020

    Fear in the Present Day World   I’m going to begin this morning by reading from an article titled,  “Jesus and the Problem of Fear in the Present Day World” Jesus said, in  Luke 12 ,verse 32;  “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”  Fear is in no sense a modern problem.  It’s as old as the history of…

Beyond The Sacred Page

September 5, 2020

  Beyond the Sacred Page, I seek Thee Lord   Where do you think is the first place, and maybe the best place, that you should go, if you want to seek the Lord?  Would it be the very word of God, the bible?   If someone doesn’t know much at all about God, where would they go to learn about God?  The bible!  Right? Jesus was speaking to a crowd…

Are you Growing In The Lord ?

August 29, 2020

      Grow In Christ   A couple of Sunday evenings ago, I read a little piece that was written by a lady who’s a member of the church.  And I told you how she seems to have a lot of good ideas in what she writes.  And so last week she wrote something about growing in the Lord, and she suggested that repentance, is a sure sign of…

The Son Of God

August 22, 2020

      God Personified   In the bible, God often times has personified Himself, as if He had a physical body, like we do.  For example,  Psalm 34:15  tells us;  “The EYES of the Lord are upon the righteous, And His EARS are open to their cry.”    And in  Isaiah 59, verse 1  we read;  “Behold, the Lord’s HAND is not shortened, that it cannot save;  Neither his…

I Am Crucified With Christ

I am Crucified With Christ   Let’s begin with reading  Galatians 5, verses 22 thru 25.. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Against such there is no law.”   Listen to that last part again..  “Against that, there is no law.”  The word “against” really means..  “compared to that, or set along side that.”   Actually, it literally means..  “down from that”,…

God, The Perfect Soul

August 15, 2020

    God is a Perfect Soul   Our God, the God of heaven and earth, is a perfect living being.  Is He not?  Is God not perfect?  Yes..?   Yes He is.  God is the ONLY perfect soul, (a soul is a living being) He is the ONLY perfect soul that there is!  Different from all other souls;  Our God is Holy.  You remember what “holy” means right?  It means…

Search the Scripture Daily

Searching The Scriptures Daily   I’d like to read to you  Acts 17, verses 10 & 11..   “The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night, to Berea.  And when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.  Now these were more noble, than those in Thessalonica;  For they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things were so.”   Paul…

A Sin Unto Death

August 8, 2020

  There Is A Sin Unto Death Let me read to you  1 John 5, verses 16 & 17.  We were talking about these two verses last Sunday morning in bible class.  Those verses tell us;  “If anyone sees his brother committing a sin NOT leading to death, (the phrase “sees his brother”, in this verse, means.. if you become aware of, or if you perceive this happening)  And so…

Psalm 51:5

More on Original Sin   Last week I talked about the subject of original sin, and how some people think that the sin of Adam, has been passed along to every human being ever born. And it’s pretty easy to take the bible and prove that idea to be false, with just a couple of verses that teach “foundational” bible principles and truths. And the verse that seems to me…

What’s The Difference ?

  All Scripture..  Inspired and Profitable   I’ve got twenty four verses of scripture for you this morning, from eight different books of the bible.  And according to  2 Timothy 3, verse 16,  ALL of these verses are inspired by God, and they are all profitable.  They are either profitable for instruction, or for reproof,  (reproof is a “proving” of God’s word, and a “proving” of our faith)  And some…

The Sin Which So Easily Entangles Us

July 18, 2020

    Sin Entangles Us   Lately I’ve been suggesting to you that you think on things that are lovely, and beautiful, pure, and honest, and that kind of thing.  But sometimes, we have to think about other things as well.  For example, sometimes, we simply have to think about sin.    I mean, the bible has an awful lot to say about sin;  And we’d surely be being negligent,…

Original Sin

July 12, 2020

      Are We Guilty of Original Sin ?   Several times I have spoken about what I would call, “foundational principles” of the Word of God.   And there are certain verses of scripture that state these “foundational principles”.   For example,  Mathew 16:16  is one of the greatest statements ever made, and it illustrates one of the greatest foundational principles ever given to us by God.   And…

The Beauty Of Innocence

July 11, 2020

  Think on Beautiful Things   A few weeks ago I gave a lesson based on  Philippians 4, verse 8,  which says;  “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”    Have you done that? …

The Evil Of Unbelief

The Evil of Unbelief   The word “unbelief” is only used 16 times in the KJV of the bible, and only in the new testament.  But yet, unbelief, is the probably the most harmful characteristic that a person can possess.  And unbelief, will probably cause more people to be lost, than anything else. Jesus said in  John 8:24;  “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: …

Don’t Be A Jonah !

July 5, 2020

  Don’t be a Jonah !   I’d like to read to you what the bible says, in  Isaiah 6, verses 1 thru 8.   Now this passage isn’t about being a “Jonah”, but instead, it’s about being an “Isaiah”.    “In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple.  Above it (above…

The “Witness” Of The Holy Spirit

The “Witness” of Romans 8:16   Romans 8, verse 16  says;   “The Spirit Himself bears witness, with our spirit, that we are children of God..”   The Spirit of God, bears witness (some versions say, “testifies”)..  either one would be correct.  “The Spirit of God, (which is God) testifies, along with our own spirit, that we are children of God.”   Now let me read to you a question and…

Water Gives Life

Water Gives Life I’ve read that about 71 or 72 % of the earth’s surface, is covered with water.  But of course that’s not including all the water that’s under the surface.  I’ve also read that “Up to 60% of the human adult body is water.  The brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water.  The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys…

Who “Penned” The Bible ?

May 23, 2020

    Who “Penned” the Words of God ?   The title of this lesson is “Who Penned The Bible?  You now what I mean;  Who wrote down the words of the bible?  Today I would like us to focus on the fact, that the bible is not the word of man, but it is the word of God! I was telling Doug the other week, about a man who…
