The Power of Man in Salvation

Posted by admin on July 25, 2017 at 6:38 am

The Power of Man in Salvation Daniel Parks There is no power in man to save, because salvation comes to those who are “without strength” (Romans 5:6) by virtue of being in their native condition “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1). Neither is there power in the law to save, because it is “weak [...]

God has made this same Jesus Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. I hear people speak of a Jesus who is trying his best to save everyone, for it is contrary to his will for [...]

Only Scriptural preaching is good preaching I heard of a preacher who very eloquently said that at the conversion of a sinner an angel of God picks up a heavenly quill and flies from God’s throne to that fountain filled with Christ’s blood, dips his quill into the blood of that fountain and then flies [...]

The answer of a good conscience toward God Bill Green was a faithful member of the church I formerly pastored in Louisville, Kentucky, USA.

Coming to Christ John 6:37, 44, 65 Holy Scriptures contain many exhortations and invitations regarding coming to Christ for salvation. Consider a few. “Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:22). “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who [...]

Faith The Greek word translated “faith” (pistos) means primarily “firm persuasion.” “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1), being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see. This faith is that conviction of the truths of God’s word and [...]

Two natures in one person.

Two natures in one person. The eternally begotten Son of God necessarily from eternity possesses the divine nature – that of His Father. When the Son of God in His incarnation became Son of Man, He received the human nature (but not its imputed sin). He did not cease to be the Son of God. [...]

Sir, We Would See Jesus

Sir, We Would See Jesus Our brother Patrick recently stepped behind our pulpit, directed our attention to John 12:21, and announced he would preach to us on “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” He certainly and immediately had my attention – for “Sir, I wish to see Jesus!” Jesus is the only subject I desire [...]
