Proof of Spiritual Life Joe Terrell “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.” ~Malachi 3:1 A believer [...]

Church Member or Christ Worshipper?

Posted by admin on July 30, 2018 at 2:28 am

Church Member or Christ Worshipper? From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure [...]

Simple, Silent, Unassuming Worship

Posted by admin on July 30, 2018 at 2:27 am

Simple, Silent, Unassuming Worship Mark 14:3-9 I find it wonderful how our Lord expresses this woman’s simple, yet focused act of worship in these verses here in Mark’s gospel. How different is this real worship as compared to today’s ‘contemporary’ style. How low key and unassuming and peaceful is this woman’s utter devotion to the [...]

Two Troubled Souls

Posted by admin on February 19, 2018 at 3:28 am

Two Troubled Souls (1 Kings 2:26-34 & Gen. 32:24-26) Here we see two men in some pretty difficult situations, two men very anxious about situations that have confronted them because of their stubbornness and sin of days gone by. One man (Joab) lays hold of the HORNS of the altar and will not let go. [...]

Only two families inhabit earth

Posted by admin on May 31, 2014 at 9:10 am

Only two families inhabit earth (Henry Law, “Deuteronomy” 1858) Only two families inhabit earth. In principle, in taste, in habit, in desire— they are as separate as . . . light from darkness, cold from heat, life from death. There is the serpent’s seed. There is the heaven-born race. There is the world. There is [...]

Who Called and Separated Us

CALLED AND SEPARATED Romans 1: 1, 6-7 The saints of God in this world are described as “called and separated.”  The apostle Paul describes himself and those saints at Rome as such.  When we see how Paul was called separated we see how all God’s saints are called and separated. Who Called and Separated Us [...]

(Charles Spurgeon, “The Blood of the Everlasting Covenant!” 1859) “The blood of the everlasting covenant!” Hebrews 13:20 Long before the day-star knew its place, long before God had spoken existence out of nothing, long before angel’s wing had stirred the unnavigated ether, long before a solitary song had disturbed the solemnity of the silence in [...]

The children of the Promise Chris Cunningham Romans 9:4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, [...]

FOR WHOM DID CHRIST DIE? – THE CHILDREN OF GOD John11:52 Our great, sin-atoning Substitute laid down his life and died for the children of God. According to the prophecy of Caiaphas, Christ was to die, not for the nation of the Jews only, but to “gather together in one the children of God that [...]

No Condemnation

Posted by admin on October 30, 2011 at 11:29 am

No Condemnation No condemnation? Here we are, unable to do even the good, that, because of the new birth, we desire to do. The new nature desiring to refrain from sin, not wanting to dishonour our Lord, and yet so wicked that we cannot help but commit the vilest evil with our hearts, hands and [...]
