THE MARVEL OF GOD’S CREATION

And God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
Genesis 1:11‭-‬13

THE DANGER OF JUDGING OTHERS – PART 1

Judging the conduct of other Christians is a subject of such universal concern within the church that the collateral scriptures applicable to this question should be remembered here.

THE TEMPLE IN HEAVEN + THE SUPERIORITY OF OUR HIGH PRIEST

It is our conviction that such language is used by the Holy Spirit in order to bring down to the level of human comprehension those heavenly realities which are not capable of any complete finite understanding, and that the eloquent words used in the sacred text are accommodated to man’s weakness and limitations, and that the marvelous realities thus described are fantastically beyond the total human knowledge of them, the very power and ability of language itself, as a means of communication, being helpless to transmit anything more than a typical or suggestive outline of the things that are in the heavens.

THE NEW AND BETTER COVENANT – Part 2

This ten commandments covenant, the first and old covenant, is the one in view by the author of Hebrews is evident and becomes certain in the light of his mention of “the tables of the covenant” being placed within the ark of the covenant (Hebrews 9:4).

FEAR GOD AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS + THE GREAT DOCTRINES OF CHRISTIANITY

THE GREAT DOCTRINES OF CHRISTIANITY ARE: The Existence and Power of God

God is the Creator

God is the creator of Man

Immortality of the Soul

The Resurrection of the Dead

God is the Shepherd of Israel

The Existence of Moses’ Law

God’s Commands Available in that Law

That Law a Divine Revelation

Man’s Accountability to God

The Eternal Judgment (Heaven and Hell)

Rewards and Punishments

THE NEW AND BETTER COVENANT – Part 1

In Hebrews 8:6-7, this “new covenant” is contrasted with what is called “the first covenant,” or “the old covenant,” indicating that the new covenant would replace not merely those lesser covenants, but it would take the place of that covenant which was so great and comprehensive, overshadowing all others, that God called it the “first covenant.”

“SAUL, SAUL, WHY DO YOU PERSECUTE ME?”

In Acts 9:4 appears one of the profoundest doctrines of Christianity, namely, that Christ is still upon earth in the person of his followers who compose his spiritual body; and that whatever is done to Christ’s church is done to himself!

THE PARABLE OF THE GOOD SAMARITAN

It is our conviction that “a certain Samaritan” in this parable does not stand for non-religious humanitarians at all, but for the Christ of Glory, who alone, of all who ever lived on earth, has shown infinite compassion and pity upon all.

THE KINGDOM THAT CANNOT BE SHAKEN

Jesus himself used the terms “CHURCH” and “KINGDOM” interchangeably in his announcement at Caesarea Philippi (Matthew 16:18) It is mandatory to view the Lord’s words there as a reference NOT to two institutions but to ONE.

HOW CAN THESE THINGS BE? – John 3

The natural man finds it very difficult to receive spiritual things, due to his inherent preoccupation with the mechanics of them, the “how” of everything. Nicodemus’ question is therefore one of remarkable interest to all. How persistently man probes every mystery!

THE OLD TESTAMENT WITNESSES OF JESUS CHRIST – Romans 3:21

The verbal prophecies, numbering some 333, foretold the coming of the Messiah in such detail and clarity that hardly any phase of our Lord’s life and character was omitted.

NOAH’S ARK AND THE GREAT FLOOD – Genesis 6

The Great Flood attested both by the Word of God and evidence from the natural world in which we live.

In addition, every culture, from every continent, has historical records of a great floor happening in ancient times.

THE PHENOMENON OF HARDENING OF HUMANITY – Genesis 6

It is fitting enough, and absolutely in accord with what is revealed in the prophets that the judgment should finally come at the end of the Fourth Great Transgression of humanity.

IN CHRIST ALONE IS OUR SALVATION – 1 Corinthians 1

There are four things mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 1, which belong to the Christian by virtue of his being “in Christ.” Satan, death and hell have no claim on the one who is “IN CHRIST!”
