  • Nothing strikes terror in the mind of a student in school more than the word “test”! Our lives are, as Christians, sometimes filled with God’s testing. His testing is not to determine whether we “fail’ or “pass“. If we belong to Christ, He sometimes tests us in order to strengthen…

  •  The Beginning? There are several references in the Bible that refer to a “beginning” or “beginnings”. Some include reference to an “end” or “endings” of an event or events. Jesus refers these dramatic events as the beginning of the end. Sorrows and unimaginable…

  • Is it wrong as a Christian to seek eternal rewards from God? The Apostle Paul affirms that every Christian who remains faithful until they die will also receive an award from Jesus. Even more than this, Jesus Himself affirms and speaks directly of those who struggle to grow spiritually. To those who overcome difficulties…

  •  Do you find yourself reliving and rerunning your life, reflecting on your life as far back as you can remember? As we all grow older, this tendency increases for some. And eventually they may wonder why…why does the mind tend to begin to play reruns of events from our past? Assuming that it does (and will)…

  • There is an old Christian melody that includes the phrase. “…troubles trouble us all”. Who among us, if we are striving to live as Christ wants us to live, have not experienced troubles of one kind or another. In a world that steadily grows more dangerous and difficult to live in as Christians, at…

  • Have you heard any bad news lately? Are we entering the “time of the end? Most who are middle age or older have probably heard much regarding the prophesied time of the end…when Jesus returns and prevents the destruction of all mankind. There is a theory regarding world affairs and their relation to…

  • The two are beautiful illustrations of the principle of “type and anti-type“; the same at different times, and in different ways, in different places. It is felt by some that understanding the Old Testament is so frustrating and difficult that they become discouraged and finally discontinue reading it at…

  • During the years that the Apostle Paul preached to and guided the converts of that day, he admonished the churches under his responsibility according to the necessities that he observed in all the churches of that dispensation of the gospel. His times are not our times now…our world, and its inhabitants, and those…

  • Regardless of yesterday, today, or tomorrow as we walk each day, striving to live in Christ, the third member of the Godhead, is always with us and in us. Being convinced is the challenge. Part of the Holy Spirit's job is convincing. He actually has three duties: convicting, convincing, and encouraging. (John 16:7-8…

  • There is a time sometime in the future, when those who are alive, and those have died - even those who have perished in oceans and seas, even all those since mankind was created - will be resurrected and be judged. Those who have believed will be made immortal and be rewarded with eternal life and glory with God. “You…

  • There comes a time in the history of every age when the sheer complexity of life and living becomes so burdensome and therefore so complex, that it is almost impossible to chart our lives with any dependable certainty. That time is coming for our times. If not already upon us. There is a strange, almost universal…

  • Do you ever wonder about your relationship with Jesus Christ? There are times when weaknesses may seem to undercut our assurance that we are saved, or that God is angry with us because of a perceived weakness. Being still human, we are susceptible to an array of influences in our lives that are broadcast satanic thoughts…

  • Have you ever been deeply offended by someone in some way, either accidentally or deliberately? You can suffer day and night from the hurt. Especially if it was totally unexpected, and done by someone who had complete trust; a long-time friend, or someone you trusted unconditionally. Perhaps the hurt was or was not…

  •  We are told that there no two humans on the earth that are exactly alike…in every detail, outward and inward. This is difficult to believe. Surely…in so many billions of humans - there are at least two who are exactly alike. However, if there were, surely someone would have found them and told the world…
