Our Infinite God

April 4, 2020

      Words to Describe Our Infinite God   There are many words that have been used to describe our Almighty God.  “Almighty” is just one of them.  But other words are “eternal”, which in the case of God, means without beginning and without end.  And “Omniscient”, which means..  all knowing, with absolutely nothing being hidden from His awareness;  And “omnipresent”, which means, in the ultimate sense..  to be…

    James Chapter 3, Verse 1   Verse 1, of  James Chapter 3,  says;  “Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing, that we will receive greater, judgment.”    A “teacher” in that verse, refers to someone who teaches God’s word.  And so it refers to..  someone who is “equipped” and “qualified”, to teach others, about God’s will, and about God’s plan of salvation, and about our…

    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…

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…

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…

September 28, 2019

    Putting Away Sin, And Longing for the Word   Verses 1 & 2;  “Putting away therefore, all wickedness, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, as newborn babes, long for the spiritual milk, which is without guile, that you may grow thereby unto salvation..” Those verses remind me of  James 1, verse 21.  Listen to the similarity.  James says;  “Wherefore, putting away all filthiness,…

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…

November 25, 2018

    Why Has God Communicated With Man?   Our question for today is this;  Is there any reason for God to have any further communications with man, in addition to communicating with us through the bible?  In the bible, we have the entire history of God’s communications with man.  From Adam, up until the complete revelation of the new testament law of Christ. We’re reminded of what it says…

Is The Bible A Testimony Of The Life Of Jesus ?

June 15, 2018

    How do you see the bible?     Here’s a statement that was made to me this past week.  “You see the bible as a rule book, instead of a testimony of the life of Jesus.”   That’s an interesting comparison;  A rule book on the one hand, and a testimony on the other.  How do you see the bible?  Do you see it as nothing more than…

      What is Anointing ?   Last week in bible class, the subject of anointing was brought up.  AndWe talked a little about it, but I thought that I saw some questions on some of the faces in the class, and so I thought that maybe I should talk about anointing, in more detail today.
