God-ordained Pastors

Posted by admin on October 30, 2016 at 8:31 am

I have heard someone say that the age of the local church is past and that there is no longer any use for God-ordained Pastors. It is easy for a weed to speak this way, because it can thrive upon that which is natural, without any tending, but the flower of God’s planting is not [...]

No longer servants Chris Cunningham John 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants, for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth . . .

Joy or offense “Free pardon is a comfort to a malefactor, but it implies guilt, and therefore they who have no apprehension that they have broken the laws, would be rather offended, than comforted, by an offer of pardon.” John Newton This quote from John Newton describes exactly what happened when our Lord taught in [...]

By the prophets

By the prophets The word prophet in the OT means, “spokesman,” and is from a root word which means “to speak under divine influence.” Interesting that this root word would come to be used for God’s spokesmen and it is because if a sinner is going to speak for God, God must bless that sinner [...]

OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS

OUR RIGHTEOUSNESSThere is but one human righteousness, and it is Christ, His Person and work.

Revelation 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him. And there shall be. . . It is the delight of the believer, on the authority of the word of God, to think on what shall be. [...]
