The Heart and The Mouth

The Heart and The Mouth Romans 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

God’s People Are a Broken People “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit” (Psalm 34:18). A broken heart, a contrite spirit and a subdued will are rare things. In this day of human rights, everyone extols the imaginary dignity of man, [...]

What Does God Require? Henry Mahan If a person has concern and doubts about his hope of grace and eternal glory, he might consider the following questions. 1. God requires perfection. Am I perfect? No! Then do I have ONE who is perfect to stand for me, and I in Him? 2. Do I have [...]

The Fear of God

The Fear of God Without the fear of God a sinner cannot worship God. The fear of God is so important in worship, that throughout the Old Testament instead of saying “the worship of God” the scriptures call worship, itself, “the fear of God” and those who worship “those that feared God.” (Ps 5:7) Fearing [...]

WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD TODAY?

WHERE IS THE FEAR OF GOD TODAY? Where is the fear of God today? Is this not what is wrong with us? Is not this the whole story? This present generation is so taken up with the idea of our own importance and so occupied with the dignity of man, that we no longer fear [...]

We are not justified by the law

Posted by admin on September 25, 2016 at 6:25 am

The Scripture distinctly teaches us that we are not justified by the law nor is the law a rule of life. That which can only curse can never justify and that which can only kill can never be a rule of life (Romans 3:20). Both the Jews who had received the law and the Gentiles [...]
