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…

Unto This They Were Appointed

October 12, 2019

    We Are All Appointed For Something   1 Peter 2, verse 8  says that for some people, Jesus Christ has become “a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense.  for they stumble at the word, being disobedient;  Wherein also they were appointed.” We are all appointed by God, for something.  We’re all “called” for a specific purpose.  But I’m not talking about being “called” by God, to…

October 1, 2019

      How Dare Anyone, Contradict the Word of God!   Our topic is contradicting the word of God.  How dare anyone contradict, what God has said..  What God has ordained!   “For the Lord of Hosts has purposed, and who shall disannul it?  His hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?”   (Isaiah 14:27) Is a human being going to change God’s plan of salvation,…

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…

God Wants The First And The Best

July 21, 2019

    Malachi 1:6-8, and 13-14   God wants certain things from us.  A few weeks ago I talked about the fact that God wants our patience, and God wants our loyalty.  But here’s two more things that God wants;  He wants our best, and He wants what’s first. Let me read a few verses from the book of Malachi.   God says in  Malachi 1, verses 6 thru 8; …

      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…

The Works Of The Word Of God

May 26, 2019

    The Works of the Word   I want us to consider six separate, but related works, that the Word of God has accomplished, and continues to accomplish, and will accomplish. First, the Word of God has created life, as we know it.   Second, the Word of God creates faith in God the creator.  Third, the Word of God became the sacrifice for the sins of the world. …

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…

Hungering For The Fatness Of God

May 4, 2019

            The Fatness of God   The bible says, in  Psalm 36, verses 7 & 8;  “How precious is Thy lovingkindness O God!  And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings.  They drink their fill, of the fatness of Thy house, and Thou does give them to drink of the river of Thy delights.”   What’s “the fatness of God”?…

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…
