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
If we knew that today was the last day we would be alive, most of us would make some big changes before the day ended. Some would live it up and party to “go out with a bang”, but many more would want to make it right with God. Even though they never really took … Continue reading What if There Was No Tomorrow?
Today is Valentine's Day. Its origin is dark and satanic, but skipping ahead, it's now considered to be a day of romance. Businesses will rake in big bucks from all the gifts of flowers, chocolate and unmentionables as couples put aside their conflicts and join in the nostalgia for a day of love! To the world, … Continue reading A Day of Love?
Many Christians feel that working within the organization of their "church" building is their prime purpose. They join the various groups, assemble with other like-minded believers for the Sunday message, and find comfort in the familiar faces around them. They have no desire to step outside of their comfort zone, and so relinquish the responsibility of a watchman … Continue reading Be a Watchman!
The issue of abortion has become front-page news and is striking controversy at the heart of many people. The “world” feels that they have the right to abort a baby on demand. Sadly, some Christians also feel that God is not opposed to abortion under certain circumstances. Does God allow exceptions for some abortions? When we study the Bible, we see … Continue reading Does God Allow Some Abortions?
New Age Christianity is doing its best to convince new and uneducated believers that they are now the new chosen people and that God wants only blessings and a good life for them here on earth. The message of salvation has been twisted so that deception has people confused as to whether our life on earth … Continue reading Resort or Battleground?
Christians agree that God is the Creator of everything. Colossians 1:16 says, “For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.” So does that mean that God also … Continue reading Did God Create Sin?
Without hope, we'd have no motivation to do anything. No purpose. No intention. No expectant results. Life within us would become a mere act of survival with no cares or implications for the next moment. We need hope. It's powerful and it's literally the driving force behind our actions, and it comes in many sizes … Continue reading What is Your Hope?
Revised version by Ronnie Dauber ‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house Every creature was praising, even the mouse. The Bibles were open to the pages with care And showed us so clearly that Jesus was near. The children were singing and clapping their hands With visions of a baby being born … Continue reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
