It’s an old saying that's been used to cover many diverse situations, but it’s a fact that can't be refuted: we canNOT buy love. We can impress, persuade, convince, influence, deceive, flatter, fake, assume, and sell the concept of love, but no one can buy the heart's unconditional commitment. Only ONE person in the world's history has ever truly loved … Continue reading You Can’t Buy Love
Many Christians suffer from some kind of disability that keeps them in a constant state of discomfort, ill-appearance, and/or pain. It’s not easy to get out and be a blessing to others when we can’t see beyond the entrapment of our own infirmity. But if we love God, we need to look beyond our disability and see His love for … Continue reading Looking Beyond a Disability
Many Christians accept Jesus as their Savior, but neglect to make Him their Lord. The reason there are so many doctrines is that they don't obey God, but we don't have a choice; we must obey Him. Why? Because God said so! Most believers refer to Jesus as “Lord”, but do they really know what … Continue reading Because God Said So!
Modern-day “Christianity” says there are several ways to get to Heaven and that we must each find which one is best for us. Universal religion says that we are all automatically saved so we can just live in sin and enjoy life. However, the Bible says there is only ONE way to get to … Continue reading Letting Ignorance Rule
This New Age Society is bold and aggressive because people don't want to be ruled by the old laws (of God) anymore. Now they are free to enjoy a life of sin and not be condemned for their choice of idolatry and immorality. Perhaps the greatest tragedy in this legalized Godless society, though, is … Continue reading Itching Ears
Never before in our lifetime has the issue of “hate” been as globally relevant as it is today. It seems that as Christians, whatever we say in defense of God’s law or His sovereignty is interpreted as “hate”. Sadly, many Christians have chosen to stay quiet because of their fear of spreading hate. The world is … Continue reading Spreading Hate
There is a big difference between Joy and Happiness, and too often we confuse them. Happiness is a temporal state of the mind; joy is a permanent condition of the heart. Happiness is the result of our emotions being satisfied; joy is the everlasting imprint on our heart that gives us strength. We may go … Continue reading Joy Comes in the Morning
People across the globe are proclaiming that God is love and that there is no hell because a loving God would never send His children there. They talk about Jesus as if He’s their best friend, yet, they don’t know Him. They are quick to speak about what the Bible says, but they don’t read … Continue reading Deception Kills
The Old Testament believers looked for the Messiah to come and save them from their sins. They sacrificed animals at the altar in reference to the ultimate sacrifice: Christ Jesus. The shed blood of the animals didn’t take away their sins and they knew that. Their focus was on Messiah who would come and be … Continue reading Formula for Salvation
Many people don’t surrender their lives to Jesus because they don’t have any idea who He really is. They’ve heard of His name, but it doesn’t mean anything to them and so they chalk Him up as a religious figure that they don’t care about. They don’t realize that they are sinners in need of … Continue reading Friend or Foe?
Life is changing, and if you are old enough to look back 30 or 40 years, you can see the dubious transformation of people’s attitudes and values just by observing how they live. We were once a God-fearing nation; now we're watching a changing of the gods. All lives used to matter when God was present … Continue reading Changing of the Gods
Many people enjoy giving gifts or helping others in need. Some give large, notable amounts of funds while others give small and discreet gifts. It is part of our human nature to give, but unfortunately, the purpose behind the giving can vary from one side to the other. As believers, our giving must be from … Continue reading What IS My Motive?
The world is watching us with beady eyes. It might even know our walk with God better than we do, especially if we don’t practice what we preach. It can spot hypocrisy a mile away and knows the ones who are true from those who just want to sit on the fence and reap the … Continue reading The Sponge
As we look around, it’s evident that the world system is falling apart, and it’s hard to see if God has any control over things anymore. Laws are changed to benefit the rich and sinful and to destroy the poor and innocent. Hatred has become a serious global issue and is inflicting death and destruction … Continue reading God’s Calling…it’s for YOU!
People often like to put “things” off until tomorrow. As far as time goes on this earth, tomorrow never comes, so their thinking is in line with this world’s clock. Yet, what many don’t realize is that time is a measure of earth, not of eternity, and it's running out. The tomorrow that lies ahead for those … Continue reading Don’t be Fooled: Tomorrow Will Come!
People tend to judge their own sin according to their own ideas. Some feel that their sin is too great so they won’t ask God to forgive them because they don’t believe that He can or will. Others assume that they are good because they haven’t done anything bad that they’re aware of; they go to … Continue reading Jesus is Able!
Many people pray and expect to hear an audible voice or see a flash of light or something in the miraculous that says God is there and He's listening. Unfortunately, though, God does speak but they are missing His voice because they are not looking for Him where He can be found. As believers, we know where … Continue reading Where are You, God?
As we reach the various ages in life, we’re compelled to look back and see what we’ve accomplished according to the milestones of today’s world. This can be depressing when we’ve failed to meet these predictions, and it can hinder our attitude for the future. As believers in Jesus, though, we must remember that we … Continue reading What Have You Done With Your Life?
Have you ever noticed how some “Christians” seem to continuously struggle throughout life while others just glide through without any issues? Maybe it’s because some have more faith than others. Perhaps it’s because the others fail the tests of faith and so have to repeat the lessons. Regardless, it seems that our prosperity is all dependent … Continue reading When Our Faith is Tested
I have written several messages lately on the urgency of sharing the gospel with others, and it’s because I believe with all my heart that we are living in the last days of this world’s system. Jesus is about to rapture His beloved Home! He first came as our Savior and we’ve been living in … Continue reading Get Ready!
Have you ever told someone about a great book you just read and they responded that they’ll wait for the movie to come out? Many people prefer movies over books because movies entertain the brain; books make it think. Besides that, what can take weeks to read can be portrayed in two hours in a movie. There … Continue reading Don’t Wait for the Movie
As exciting as worship can be on Sunday mornings at church, it should never be limited to just Sunday. It should be part of our daily lifestyle that bursts forth because the heart can’t stop singing praises to God. We need to worship continuously because it’s the fuel that keeps us going. As it says in … Continue reading Worship Breaks the Shackles
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell on face value who is a Christian—a true believer in Christ—and who just professes to be one. Those who we conclude are false become the center of our critical attention as we slowly find fault in all they do and judge them for their lack of spiritual integrity. However, it’s … Continue reading Am I a Christian?
The New Age Christianity has compromised the true gospel of Christ. Instead of glorifying God through His Son Jesus who came to earth and died for their sins, the followers of these false doctrines see Jesus as a superhero they’ve imagined to suit their own desires. They don't realize that salvation requires repentance, and they … Continue reading They Will Die LOST!
Many people today say that they aren’t a slave to anyone; they are their own master, in control of their own life and don’t answer to anyone. But the truth is, we are all a creation of God and have been corrupt with sin, and so contrary to what modern society thinks, we do serve one of two masters! … Continue reading Two Masters
