GOD’S ELECT IN PUBLIC ASSEMBLY

Posted by on November 3, 2019 at 10:56 am

GOD’S ELECT IN PUBLIC ASSEMBLY Since the days of the apostles I see them. All around the world I see them. Some are Jews and some are Gentiles; some are employers and some employees; some are prosperous and well to do and some are poor and hardly make do; some hold degrees in education and […]

Even your own relatives think you are almost insane

Even your own relatives think you are almost insane (J. C. Philpot, “The Abiding Comforter” 1858) “The Spirit of truth. The world cannot receive Him,because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.”John 14:17 The world—that is, the world dead in sin, and theworld dead in profession—men destitute of the lifeand power of God—must have something […]

Christ Our Rule

Christ Our Rule Galatians 6:16 “And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them.”And what is this rule we walk by? The Law? No. It is this, “God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Galatians 6:14). Truly, this is the believer’s rule of life. This is our […]

OUR RULE OF LIFE

Posted by on April 29, 2019 at 10:45 am

OUR RULE OF LIFE Many religious people claim to believe a sinner is saved by grace but then they also claim that the believer must still strive to keep the law. They say, “How else will you control people?” One big concern is giving. False religion keeps people under the law of the tithe because they know stingy, selfish […]

Let Us Labor to Rest

Let Us Labor to Rest “Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest” (Heb. 4:11). Seems to be a contradiction in terms, labor to rest; but in reality, it is not. Let us eagerly strive and earnestly pursue to count all our works as “dung and filthy rags” and to “cease from our own […]

THE CONSTRAINING LOVE OF CHRIST 2 Corinthians 5: 14: For the love of Christ constraineth us; When it came to believing and preaching Christ, some accused the apostle Paul of being beside himself. Others accused him of being too serious. But by the Holy Spirit of God, he answered, “Whether we be beside ourselves, it […]

Believers are motivated by love

Posted by on August 20, 2018 at 11:54 am

“I defy anyone to find a solitary text of Scripture in the New Testament that uses the law to motivate, inspire, regulate, or even guide the believer. Believers are motivated by love, inspired by gratitude, regulated by grace, and guided by the Holy Spirit. The whole Word of God, the complete revelation of His will, […]

Love and the Law Acts 15: 5: But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses…7: Peter rose up, and said unto them,…10: Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke […]

Walk In Love

Posted by on July 23, 2018 at 10:27 am

Walk In Love And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour. Eph 5:2 Here we see the motive for the performance of all duties and responsibilities (which are really privileges and blessings) of believers in […]
