But the Laborers are Few

"My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit u... Read More

Consecration

Being such an important word, it is amazing how little we hear it. So long as we as Christians are not consecrated to the Lord, we will accomplish extremely little or nothing for Heaven. We must learn what this word means and how we can become consecrated to our God. Here is the meaning of the word ... Read More

Desperately Needed: Men of God

"And what shall I more say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of ...

Does the World Love You?

I was recently talking with an elderly brother and sister in the Lord and the brother shared something very interesting that stuck with me. An old friend of his from before he was saved said to him: "I liked you better before you became a Christian." Now this got me thinking. This brother, before he... Read More

Entertainment

Today's western Christians are saturated with entertainment. At this point I can see no distinction between believer and non-believer. Entertainment pervades our Christian lives. When we are at home we seek to be entertained. When we are at church we seek to be entertained. And all the while Jesus C... Read More

Examine Yourself

This isn't anything new or complicated... I just thought I'd post a few simple questions for us all to stop and examine ourselves: 1. Am I nourishing my spirit with the Word of God? Am I eating as much spiritual food as I am physical food? If I ate as much real food as I read my Bible, would I be a ... Read More

Final Exam

At the end of all this will be the final evaluation of your life. You will stand before the Lord of Heaven and of Earth, who made them and everything in them, and who gave breath to all things, and you will give an account of your life, all you did, all you thought, all you said, and so all will be ...

Fire on the Altar

Oh dear friends, here it is. Romans 12:1 - "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship." That we would breath this in and let it become a part of us... that we would seize th... Read More

God's Word to Overcome

"Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth forever." - Psalm 119:160 I want us just to focus in on the Word of God and dwell on the gravity of this book. First of all, imagine if the Bible did not exist... if right now, there was no such thing as the Bibl... Read More

Guidelines for the Godly Man

(For those called to a life of full consecration, obedience and service unto the Kingdom of God) THE CALLING OF THE MAN OF GOD: 1. The purpose of the man of God is to be God's man. As Adam bore a son in his own likeness and image, so the Christian man must conform to the image of the Father. This is... Read More

Hardness of Heart

The sin of our day and age is not external, such as drunkeness, wantoness and other forms of immorality, for these are but symptoms of a far graver transgression. Our sin is that of hardness of heart, a completely fallow and unproductive ground where the seed of God's Word cannot grow. And do not th... Read More

How to be Filled with the Holy Spirit

I definitely think it worthwhile to continue on this subject of the Holy Spirit. By this very simple article I will briefly expound on how to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Here lies the key to receiving the blessing: "And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye sh... Read More

How to Escape Doubting Castle

(This is an expository of Bunyan's immortal tale) In the land there stands Doubting Castle, hidden beyond the eyes of the traveling pilgrims. Living inside the castle is the infamous Giant Despair, who takes great delight in the torture and humiliation of all who may be journeying to Celestial City.... Read More

Let Your "Yes" Be Yes

"Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one." - Matthew 5:37 How often have we said 'yes' to the Jesus? How often have we said 'no' to ourselves? How often have we followed through with what we have said? A vow no longer needs an oath. In fact, ... Read More

Our God is a Consuming Fire (Part One)

"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:28-29 This entire twelfth chapter of Hebrews never fails to cause me to tremble. We find throughout this text ... Read More

Our God is a Consuming Fire (Part Two)

"Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: for our God is a consuming fire." - Hebrews 12:28-29 If we would consider the sacrifice God made upon the cross to redeem us of our sins, we would live profo...

Pure Religion

"He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor will also cry himself and not be answered." - Proverbs 21:13 One night in prayer, the Lord pressed upon me this Scripture, which rather shook me at the time. I have never 'shut my ear' to the poor and have often been filled with compassion for them and do... Read More

Rest for Your Souls

"This is what the Lord says: 'Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.'" - Jeremiah 6:16 Christians must make many decisions... we make them on a daily basis. Some decisions we must make are far mor... Read More

Romans 7 Under the Microscope

Right away in 7:1 Paul points out who he is speaking to and about: "Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" He's talking to them that KNOW the Law. What does he mean, the Law has dominion over man as long as he ... Read More

Sanctification

"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." - 1 Thessalonians 5:23 I believe the Bible is unmistakably clear on the issue of whether or not it is possible to overcome sin in this ...
