  • A favorite ploy of modern deceivers who are self professed healers is to postpone the healing of some diseases due to their nature. In reality, they put them off because they have NO POWER to heal anyone, and that lack of power becomes all the more obvious as the symptoms of the disease become more obvious. In other words,…

  • We live in a culture that is accustomed to seeing and hearing false prophets; they are commonplace among us. All one has to do is turn on the TV at virtually any hour of the day or night. Men and women openly speak and do things contrary to the word of God and all the whilst claim to be spokespersons for Him! I don't…

  • Quoting from our previous message, “Those who claim to speak for God apart from that which is written [the Bible] are purveyors of error and seek to delude others with their lying signs and wonders. There are few exceptions to this rule!” God has spoken through His written word and He still speaks in this manner.…

  • The tragedy of false prophets and false teachers is all about us. Every “Christian denomination” is but a silent witness to error! Most of the teaching that one hears and sees today via television is fraught with error and bears testimony to the fact that strong delusions await those who do not receive The…

  • “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers…

  • There is hearing, and then there is hearing! As we saw recently, it is possible to hear, and yet not hear. In order for this to be true, the word hear must be used in two different ways. First, there is the hearing that occurs with the ears, and then there is the hearing that occurs with the heart. Hearing…

  • “And the disciples came and said to Him, 'Why do You speak to them in parables?' He answered and said to them, 'Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but…

  • The parables of Jesus, precious and memorable as they are, were the source of great controversy. It was here that a great separation of the ways occurred between His followers and His would-be followers. This was all part of the plan, the plan to winnow the harvest of followers so that only the cream of the…

  • What think ye of the parables? Do you see them as neat little stories that could be understood easily and embraced by all with equal comfort. Well, nothing could be further from the truth! The parables of Jesus, precious and memorable as they are, were the source of great controversy. It was here that a great separation…

  • Buyer beware! Caveat emptor! These warnings ought to get our attention. But, how about the warning, “Believer beware”? This is Peter’s message; it ought not to go unheeded! “But there were [in the Old Testament era] also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers…

  • Today’s message takes up by quoting the final paragraph of the previous lesson. It reads: “The non-critical listener is poised to fall. As John so succinctly put it, “…many false prophets have gone out into the world.” (1 John 4.1). This being the case, John implored his brothers and sisters…

  • The love for the truth is distinctly different from the love of the truth. One’s love for the truth occurs as the concepts of truth are pursued; this love motivates toward the discovery of truth. In contrast, the love of the truth results from knowing God and embracing His character as…

  • Jesus said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” (Matthew 11.15). Stubborn and rebellious as we are, we say, “Well, Duh! Why would anyone say something like, 'He who has ears to hear, let him hear?' Of course, someone without ears can't hear!'” And we totally miss the point…

  • “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes...” (Proverbs 21.2a). I can state this another way that is equally truthful but hard to accept; here it is: Until I see myself through eyes other than my own, I will never know the truth about myself! Read these words again; they are of utmost importance! Until…

  • You could read this paragraph hurriedly and go on about your business, but I beg you not to; I beg you to read it and let it impact your life. I do not ask this because it is something I wrote; quite the contrary, it contains a timeless truth that God revealed about you... and me... and about every…
