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
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?
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!
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?
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!
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?
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
This world is dark because sin has separated people from God. Many prefer the life of sin, don't want to know God, and are even offended by the name of Jesus. Some cling to anti-Christ religions; others choose to follow false doctrines; many more prefer to make science their god, while multitudes claim to be atheists so they … Continue reading Our Soul Cries Out
When Adam and Eve ate from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, they fell from the grace of God. Their eyes were opened to the existence of sin and they chose to follow it instead of God. Ever since that day, every person ever born has been given that same choice and … Continue reading What are You Doing With God’s Grace?
Often when people hear a Christian talking about the salvation of Jesus, an alarm goes off in their head. They either run and hide to avoid an encounter, or boldly speak against the “religion” of the Christian and declare that they have their own religion. So why do Christians continue to talk about Jesus anyway … Continue reading Why Talk about Jesus?
It’s not the challenges in life that make us who we are; it’s how we deal with them that reveals our true character. If we want to know who we really are inside, just wait until we are under pressure, facing a challenge or stressed. This is when our real attitude comes to the surface. … Continue reading Bad Attitudes
Too many Christians prefer to ignore sin rather than take a stand against it. Is this what Jesus told us to do? How can we share the gospel or be a witness of God’s love or of His saving grace if we don’t get out there and tell the world that sin is wrong? How … Continue reading Walking with Blinders
Like a well-stocked department store that offers a diversity of products to please its different customers, this world offers a wide selection of so-called Christianity that caters to individual needs and desires. And variety is good when pleasing our personal tastes, but there is only ONE Christianity that revives the soul. And the only choice … Continue reading The Road to Jerusalem
Many people in our country will go hungry today or will suffer from lack of money or needs to get through the day. And many more in the third world will starve and die from poverty. But sadly, in our ignorance, many of us will choose not to see or care about their needs and … Continue reading Crumbs Under the Table
Many people are suffering from physical, mental or emotional stress and they are ready to give up. Their only hope for help was in the world and it has let them down. And that's because the world cannot help when it is the reason for the problems. But as Christians, our hope should be in … Continue reading Jesus Saves
Did you ever notice that life’s motivations go in waves? Nothing is stable. Everything is changing. The fashion industry, TV shows, hit songs, movie themes and even food is forever changing. But most noticeable is our social world where things that were once forbidden are now the norm, what we once called evil is now … Continue reading Things are Changing!
There's a mineral that we use every day and can't live without. It gives life and we use it to accent our food, preserve food, bathe in, and even cleanse wounds. Spiritual salt is also crucial to life, and we must always be filled and ready to respond when we hear, “Please, pass the salt!” Jesus had … Continue reading Please, pass the salt!
Today, we have many different versions of the Bible and even more interpretations. Many see the words as complicated, and God as confusing, so the Scriptures have been twisted, turned, modified, watered-down, souped-up and even deleted to make it easier to understand. However, there is only one gospel and it can be summed up in … Continue reading The Gospel in a Nutshell
Many Christians identify themselves as being “born-again” Christians. Perhaps it’s their way of separating themselves from specific denominations, or perhaps it’s a term they use to show others that they really are Christians. But the fact is that a person who is a Christian does not need to say they are born-again. The changing point … Continue reading Born-again?
