There’s several things about the bible that spark our curiosity.  And the things that seems to spark our curiosity the most, are the things that are not completely revealed.  And I’m sure the…

The Last Shall Be First

March 22, 2020

    Humility and Sacrifice   In  Mathew chapter 19,  Jesus was teaching about giving things up, and taking a back seat, so to speak.  That’s the chapter where a young man came to Jesus, and he asked Jesus;  “Teacher, what GOOD THING shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?”  (Mathew 19, verse 16)  And Jesus answered, and said in  verse 17;  “Why are you asking Me about…

The Promise Of God

March 14, 2020

          New Testament Promises   I’d like to read to you some of the promises that God has made to us in the new testament. First, there’s this promise from  Romans 8, verse 28.   And I think this is the favorite verse of a lot of people, because it’s such a great promise.  Here it is..  “And we know, that God causes all things to…

March 7, 2020

          Accountability for Sin   The bible says, in  Genesis 3, verses 7 thu 10;  “Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked;  And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.  They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife…

The Glory Of Your Spirit

March 6, 2020

            Think About the Glory of Your Spirit..   Think about the glory of your spirit, and the glory of every Christian’s spirit.  Most people spend far too much time thinking about the glory of their appearance, but spend very little time thinking about the glory of their spirit.  But everyone is born with a glorious spirit. God said in  Genesis 1, verse 26;  “Let…

The Scepter Of Righteousness

January 29, 2020

      The Scepter of the Kingdom of God   Consider if you would, the words of  Hebrews 1, verse 8;  “..And the scepter of righteousness, is the scepter of Thy kingdom.” A scepter is basically a rod, or a staff;  However a scepter is almost always an ornamented staff, or a decorated staff, that a king or an emperor would carry in his hands, especially on ceremonial occasions. …

What Is The Spirit, Of Your Spirit ?

January 25, 2020

    Does your Spirit Possess the Proper Spirit ?   In 1968, Kenny Rogers was with a group called The First Edition, and they recorded a song called “I Just Dropped In, To See What Condition My Condition Was In”.   And that became the chorus of the song..  “To see what condition my condition was in”. I suppose maybe you’d call that, a play-on-words, and the reason that I…

James 5, Verses 13 thru 20

January 19, 2020

Concerning James 5, Verses 13 thru 20   Verse 13  introduces a new subject matter, from the previous verses.  James had been talking about those who trust in their riches, instead of trusting in God.  And he had been talking about how the rich sometimes persecute the poor.  And he talked about being patient, and waiting on the Lord, to receive the Lord’s blessings.  And he talked about treating one…

Christmas

December 23, 2019

    Tis The Season   The bible tells us, in Ecclesiastes 3, verse 1;  “For everything, there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.”  A “season” is a definite, appointed time;  A “time” appointed by God.  We’re told in  verse 2;  “There is, a “time to be born, and a time to die”.   Galatians 4, verse 4  says;  “But when the fullness of time…

God’s Everlasting Covenants – Part 3, God’s Salvation

December 7, 2019

      God’s Covenants and God’s Salvation   Today I want to continue our study about God’s covenants.  And I want to show you how God’s covenants, are intertwined, with God’s eternal “purpose”, which is the salvation of man’s soul.  Often times, we refer to this “eternal purpose”, as God’s “plan of salvation”.   But in  Ephesians 3, verse 11,  God calls it His “purpose”.  Here’s what it says…

Knowledge, Rational Thinking, & Understanding

November 23, 2019

      Three Accounts of the Lord’s Supper   Mathew, Mark, and Luke, all give an account of the evening when Jesus gave His instructions about the Lord’s supper.  But they don’t all give exactly the same account.  And that’s where the problem begins.  People then claim that the bible contradicts itself, and therefore cannot be trusted.  How can the bible be the word of God, if it can’t…

The Silence Of The Scriptures – Part 2, The Worship Assembly

November 17, 2019

    The Silence of the Scriptures, and Our Worship   Jesus said, in  Luke 4, verse 8;  “..It is written;  You shall worship the Lord thy God, and Him only, shall you serve.”  The bible isn’t silent about worshipping God.  “It is written;  You SHALL worship, the Lord thy God..”   And it’s also written, in  John 4:24;  “God is Spirit, an those who worship Him, MUST worship in…

Making Bible Study Fun

November 7, 2019

        Do You Think Bible Study Should Be Fun?     Here’s a question for you;  Do you think that bible study should be fun?  I do.  When we try to teach the bible to little children, it’s pretty much accepted, that you’ve got to find a way to make it fun for them.  Otherwise, they wouldn’t be interested, right?  Bible study would be completely boring for…

The Resurrection At The Last Day

October 26, 2019

        Thinking about the Resurrection   You like to think about nice things don’t you?  Well, this morning, I’d like us to think about the resurrection, unto eternal life.  It’s a lovely thought, and it’s a pure thought, and it’s a true thought.  Those who die in Christ, will indeed be resurrected unto eternal life.   1 Thessalonians 4, verse 14  says;  “For if we believe that…

How Dare You ! A Gospel Sermon – Part 1

September 29, 2019

    How Dare You Contradict God !   Have you ever heard someone say these words..  “How dare you!”  Why would someone say that?  Would it be because you questioned their truthfulness?  Would it be because you opposed their authority?  Would it be because someone openly defied what you had told them? Imagine this;  Imagine you have a child, who comes home from school, and asks if they can…
