One Of You Shall Betray Me – Master is it I?

Posted by admin on March 22, 2017 at 10:18 am

One Of You Shall Betray Me – Master is it I? When the Lord told His disciples, “One of you shall betray me,” they all replied, “Lord, is it I?” We should have such distrust of ourselves that we would have the same reply. But one of His disciples answered differently, “Master (Rabbi) is it [...]

Betraying Christ with a kiss

Betraying Christ with a kiss Judas betrayed his Master with a KISS! He came to the Lord with evil in his heart, the price of a compromise in his hand, religious devils at his side, and said, “Hail Master”, as he planted a KISS on the Lord’s cheek! This is how most apostates and compromisers [...]

Judas and Simon Peter

Judas and Simon Peter What was the difference between the sin of Judas and the sin of Simon Peter? What they did to our Lord seemed similar yet Simon was forgiven and converted, while Judas hanged himself and was damned.

Two lessons taught by Esau

Posted by admin on February 12, 2017 at 9:26 am

Two lessons taught by Esau The birthright which Esau despised and sold for a morsel of meat (Hebrews 12: 16) was not the natural inheritance of his father but, all of the promises of God in the coming redeemer. To him, it was just spiritual folklore and superstitious tradition. While the concept of such things [...]

If God Is Sovereign – How Are Men Responsible?

If God Is Sovereign – How Are Men Responsible? Todd Nibert God is sovereign. You cannot take that too far or overstate it. Everything that happens, happens according to the sovereign will of God. “He worketh all things after the counsel of His own will” (Eph. 1:11). If God’s will determines everything, how can men [...]

Responsibility

Responsibility “… The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.” Mk 1:15 Responsibility has nothing to do with ability. The words are not even spelled alike (ibility – ability). Man is responsible for his sin but has not the ability to change what he is … [...]

Altogether Vanity

Altogether Vanity Psalm 39: 5 It is the assumption of most that sin is something that comes into their lives at moments of weakness. Anger, jealousy, and pride, finding an occasion, cause their feet to slip and sin enter the door. If they could somehow get rid of these things that have ruined their reputations, [...]

To walk after the flesh

To walk after the flesh “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Rom. 8:1 To walk after the flesh carries with it the idea of the flesh going before us—as our leader, guide, and example—and our following close in its [...]

It is a creature of many lives!

It is a creature of many lives! Man is a strange compound. A sinner, and the worst of sinners, and yet a Pharisee! A wretch, and the vilest of wretches, and yet pluming himself on his good works! Did not experience convince us to the contrary, we would scarcely believe that a monster like man, [...]

As the doctrines of election and perseverance are comfortable

Posted by admin on January 7, 2016 at 11:38 am

As the doctrines of election and perseverance are comfortable, so they cut off all pretense of boasting and self-dependence, when they are truly received in the heart, and therefore tend to exalt the Saviour. … How do our hearts soften, and our eyes melt, when we feel some liberty in thinking and speaking of him!
