Hell: Who, How, Why, When?

WHO DESERVES TO GO TO HELL? Everyone! That’s right, everyone. How can it be that everyone deserves to go to hell? Because that is what the Bible, God’s Word, says. “For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). ALL, that means everyone – that means you and me. “But the fear... Read More

The Divine and Human Nature of Christ

Herman BavinckThe testimony which, according to Scripture, Christ has given of Himself is developed and confirmed by the preaching of the apostles. The confession that a man, named Jesus, is the Christ, the Only-Begotten of the Father, is in such direct conflict with our experience and with all of our thinking, a... Read More

The Joy of Being With Christ

John BramhallHave you ever considered that in a very few words, the Scriptures describe the blessedness of those who have gone to he with Christ?

Homily 9 on Matthew

John ChrysostomMatt. II. 16. Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding angry.

For when a soul is insensible and incurable, it y... Read More

John 1:11-13

John ChrysostomHe came unto His own, and His own received Him not. 1. Beloved, God being loving towards man and beneficent, does and contrives all things in order that we may shine in virtue, and as desiring that we be well approved by Him.

John 1:3

John ChrysostomAll things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. 1. Moses in the beginning of the history and writings of the Old Testament speaks to us of the objects of sense, and enumerates them to us at length. For, In the beginning, he says, God made the heaven and the earth, a... Read More

1 Corinthians 10

John Nelson DarbyThis chapter is a continuation of the same subject. All Israel were baptised unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual meat, and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them; and that Rock was Christ. But with many o... Read More

1 Corinthians 15

John Nelson DarbyThe apostle now speaks of resurrection. His keeping it till the last, in this way, is remarkable. We have a great truth brought out in the chapter, in the total identification of Christ with men - saints, but man as man, because he says, if men do not rise, Christ is not risen. I have not the least ... Read More

Compared view of the First Three gospels, etc.

John Nelson DarbyI apprehend that the Gospel of Mark, which brings under our view the service of Christ, and particularly His prophetic service, and, hence, records simply the accomplishment of that service, as the events arose, is that of the three first Gospels, which gives generally the chronological order of eve...
