What Was I, That I Could Withstand God? The church was a moment of transition, working according to the plan of God. It’s hard to believe they forgot such an important part of the gospel. It was to be spread from Jerusalem to the uttermost parts of the world. Jesus told the disciples this before he ascended. They forgot they were to reach...
The Trial and the Rending This is a message of warning for professed Christians. We must mean business with the Lord—mean what we profess. Here a man did something visible which meant little. The Bible says “he rent his clothes.”  Aside from the usual definition we think of, the dictionary defines “rent”...
Learning to Fear– Learning the Fear of God “Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.” Deuteronomy...
The Workmanship and the Work Shop The Lord used Paul greatly to show us how it is between man and God and how we are when it comes to the working of salvation. Philippians 2:12 “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling....
Jesus, Where is My Miracle? The Bible talks about things that were done for this person and that person.  Why am I still in the shape I’m in?  That’s what the people asked Jesus when he went home to Nazareth. They said “you’ve done miracles in Capernaum; why not here?” Is this your question? If so, you’re not all...
His Name is Reverend Fearing the Lord: His name is reverend. There is a right and a wrong kind of fear. The New Testament says “fear not” many times. John says perfect loves casts out fear.  We don’t have a sinner’s fear, but we should have a believer’s fear. Psalm 111:9 “He sent redemption unto his people:...
The Lord’s Table Communion and feetwashing are two of the ordinances. Jesus never intended them to be essential for salvation. Having a home in heaven and sins forgiven are only through access to Jesus Christ. There are times, because of physical limitation, that baptism by immersion is not possible, but it won’t stop...
That He May See Sight should never dictate your faith.  The prayer in this text is that a person’s eyes be opened for him to see. He needed to realize that he didn’t have to worry about what he saw. Sight does not define God. He’s God regardless if we see him or not. Look at what you don’t look at, what’s...
Estimation, Change, and Exchange For everything you can think of, government to individual, God drew up his law for Israel. It was not to show how cruel or stern he was but how interested he was in them and protected they were of him. God is to Israel as a parent, therefore he made rules to go by. Israel still forsook them time after...
