June 1, 2019

      A Religious “Tract”   A friend of mine found a little religious tract the other day, and he showed it to me, and here’s part of what it said;  One day John’s friend stopped him..  “John, I’ve got some good news for you!  “Really?”  John said.  “Yes, the bible tells us that heaven can be our home, since Jesus Christ died for our sins!  “That is good…

Two Books Of Life

May 26, 2019

    The Book of Life   You’ve heard about the book of life, haven’t you?  Most people have, if they’re at all familiar with the bible.  It’s spoken about in the old testament, and it’s spoken about in the new testament. In  Exodus 32, verse 32,  Moses speaks these words to God;  “And yet now, if You would, forgive their sins;  But if not, blot me I pray, out…

A Comprehensive Study Of The Holy Spirit Of God – Part 4

May 11, 2019

      Receiving the Holy Spirit   This part of our study of the Holy Spirit, deals with receiving the Holy Spirit.  To begin with, we need to understand that receiving the Holy Spirit, is not the same thing as receiving “the gift” of the Holy Spirit.  Receiving “the gift” of the Holy Spirit is spoken of in  Acts 2:38.  In that verse, the “gift” being spoken of is…

Spiritual Conditions – Part 2

April 27, 2019

    A Saved Condition, and a Lost Condition   This is Part 2 of the lesson called “Spiritual Conditions”.  In  “Spiritual Conditions – Part 1,  I referred to this as “food for thought”.  And I’d like you to look at this lesson as more “food for thought”.   The reason I call it that, is because there’s more than one way to look at this subject, and so this…

The Conflict Of Two Natures

April 27, 2019

      What’s the “Nature” of Man?   The bible tells us that a human being is made up of two “natures”.   We have a physical nature, and we have a spiritual nature.   Genesis 2, verse 7  tells us;  Then the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, (that’s our physical nature) and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life..”  (that’s our spiritual…

Justification By Faith, Perfected By Works

April 12, 2019

    Faith or Works, or Both?   The title of this lesson is ” Justification By Faith, Perfected By works”.  But let me explain exactly what is meant by that.. The justification that God gives to a person, is because of their faith, which has been “perfected”, or “made complete”, through their works.  The word “works” simply refers to deeds that are done.  But I’m not talking about doing…

Spiritual Conditions – Part 1

April 10, 2019

    What’s Your Spiritual Condition ?   I just want to give you some “food for thought” today.  Here’s a lesson on what the bible teaches, about what I call, “spiritual conditions”.  When I say “spiritual conditions”, I am contrasting, being in a spiritual “condition”, with being in spiritual “place”.  I believe that when our bibles use the word “place” in regard to our spiritual destiny, such as it…

    Are You in as Good a Condition, as You Used to be ?   Suppose you needed to buy a car, but you didn’t have much money, you’d probably have to look for an older car, that didn’t cost so much.  But then you’d have to worry about what condition it would be in.  So you find someone advertising an old car, and you ask him;  How does…

Neither Could They Blush

March 28, 2019

        Blushing Have you ever felt embarrassed, and blushed because of it?  Listen to what an encyclopedia says about blushing; “If we blush about doing something we shouldn’t have done, it shows that we are ashamed or embarrassed, that we recognize that something is out of place. It shows that we are sorry about this. It shows that we want to put things right. To blush at…

Becoming A Christian

March 4, 2019

  The Forgiveness of Sins There is only one purpose for seeking to have your sins forgiven, and that one purpose is so that you can receive the promise from God, of spending eternity in heaven, and avoid spending eternity in hell.  If you don’t believe in heaven and hell, then there is no reason to seek to have your sins forgiven.  As a matter of fact, a person who…

Out Of Egypt

February 2, 2019

    Israel Comes Out Of Egypt   Israel was in bondage.  They were slaves in a foreign land.  Even though none of the Israelites who were brought up out of Egypt, had ever lived anywhere else, Egypt was not their home.  There was a land that they had never seen, and that land was their true home.  I’m sure that they had heard about it, but none of them…

A Study Of The Holy Spirit Of God – Part 1

January 26, 2019

      Who Is The Holy Spirit ?   In our study of the Holy Spirit, the first thing we need to do, is to answer the question, “Who is the Holy Spirit”?  And of course we’re not going to speculate about it, but as with all things, we’re going to simply see what the bible says about it.  Then we’ll be sure that we know the truth of…

Why Is The Bible So Hard To Understand ?

January 6, 2019

      Do You Think The Bible Is Hard To Understand?   Do you think that the bible is hard to understand?  I believe that most people think it is.  A man recently commented to me and said; “If God is so omnipotent, then why couldn’t He give us a book that everyone could understand?  That’s a good question.  Why couldn’t God have given us a book that was…
