In Spirit and Truth

In Spirit and Truth “God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him, Must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, (John 4:24). Here are two principles of worship without which all worship of God is vain. God must be worshipped in spirit – a heart worship – as opposed to mere forms and ceremonies, [...]

Worthless Knowledge of the TRUTH

Posted by admin on March 22, 2017 at 10:31 am

Worthless Knowledge of the TRUTH When Knowledge of the truth does not lead us to worship the Lord in love with a sense of awe, it is evidence that our knowledge of the truth has not gone beyond our brains – it has not penetrated our hearts. Divine truth was not given to make us [...]

The Pillar and Ground of the Truth The church of the living God as she is seen in her local assemblies is the pillar and ground of the truth. Though these assemblies are few and far between they alone have the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. They stand wherever God has gathered them [...]

Ignorance Leads To Error

Ignorance Leads To Error Tom Harding Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. (Matt. 22:29. Our blessed Lord answers the question of the Sadducees about the resurrection by telling them their problem. The problem is not with Christ and the truth of the resurrection, [...]

Job said, “I know that my redeemer liveth.

Posted by admin on November 10, 2015 at 12:55 am

Job said, “I know that my redeemer liveth.” Which of the two words should be of greater importance — my redeemer? The presumptuous person may claim the blessings based upon the fact that he has accepted the Redeemer as my Redeemer. The true believer embraces the promises as they are in Christ Jesus; He is [...]

Saving faith is not merely a mental assent

Posted by admin on October 31, 2015 at 10:20 am

Saving faith is not merely a mental assent to the Word of God, but a taking hold of God in His Word — believing God. Therefore, unbelief is not the mere disbelief of some statements of fact, but disbelieving God. Unbelief is a rebellious heart calling God a liar!!! Maurice Mongomery

Faith keeps the soul from sinking under heavy trials

Posted by admin on October 31, 2015 at 10:19 am

I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me. (Psa 13:6) Faith keeps the soul from sinking under heavy trials, by bringing in former experiences of the power, mercy, and faithfulness of God to the afflicted soul. Hereby was the psalmist supported in distress. Oh, saith faith, remember what God hath [...]

“SAVING FAITH”

Posted by admin on October 31, 2015 at 10:17 am

“SAVING FAITH” The faith of the natural man, the unregenerate man, is reasonable, logical, and often very influential (Matt. 7:21-23); but the faith of the Christain is a gift of God, a miracle, and is always the producer of a radical change in those who possess it. A man cannot possibly possess saving faith whose [...]

“BUT WE SEE JESUS”

Posted by admin on October 31, 2015 at 10:15 am

“BUT WE SEE JESUS” How do we “See Jesus?” Not by means of mysterious dreams or ecstatic visions, not by the exercise of our imagination, nor by a process of visualization; but by faith. Just as Christ declared, in John 8:56, “Abraham rejoiced to see My day and he saw it, and was glad.” Faith is [...]

An experimental Christian?

Posted by admin on May 31, 2014 at 9:15 am

An experimental Christian? (Winslow, “This God is Our God”) The religion of the true believer is experimental; it is the religion of the heart. He has no dealings with an unknown, imaginary God. He does not know God from the hearing of the ear, or from the reading of books, or from the religious conversation of [...]
