“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1 Thess. 5:18 The Lord is working all things after the counsel of His own will. Knowing then that He Who is all wise, all powerful and merciful toward His people is working everything for His glory and the good […]

Blessed Assurance John 6:37 There is something very comforting to the believer when he sees the “wills”, “shalls”, and “musts” within the scripture. Those words speak of certainty.

THE WAY THEY CALL HERESY But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets. (Acts 24:14) There is only one message that agrees and fully satisfies all that is […]

SALVATION It is most refreshing to hear a sinner confess his need of the Lord Jesus Christ. Knowing that salvation is only by grace through faith, God’s sheep rejoices in that effectual calling by the Holy Spirit. The religion of this world preaches that salvation is man’s response to an offer by God. Nothing could […]
