THE INDWELLING SPIRIT – Romans 8

The Holy Spirit is the blessed Spirit, a member of the GODHEAD, who takes up residence in Christian hearts in consequence of their being sons of God (Galatians 4:6), and in fulfillment of the apostolic promise of such an indwelling to all believers who will repent and be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38f), and is thus identifiable as the “Holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).

THE CHRISTIAN RACE – Hebrews 12

The analogy becomes a contrast in the matter of how many may win. In the earthly contest, only one receives the prize; but in the heavenly contest, every man may do so, since his victory does not depend upon any relationship between his achievement and the achievement of his fellow contestant.

A FUTURE OF HOPE! Jeremiah 29

Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.

You will seek me and find me
When you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes

SEEING THE INVISIBLE

Things not seen, that are invisible, include everything in the whole area of faith, the creation of the universe, the incarnation of Christ, the judgment of the world by the deluge, the second advent of Christ, the final judgment, the ultimate reception by every man of the destiny, good or bad, that shall be assigned to him by God’s enforcement of universal judgment, founded on justice and mercy.

GOD’S PLAN OF SALVATION

Christ made it clear enough that salvation is the result, not of merely believing but of believing and being baptized. The preconditions upon which Christ promised to transfer sinners into himself are here stated as faith and baptism.

GOD’S PROVIDENTIAL CARE FOR HIS CHILDREN – Matthew 10

The mystery of how God cares for the myriads of his creatures both great and small is an unfailing marvel. Anyone familiar with wild life is aware of the remarkable continuation of every species from age to age. That God does indeed do this is a certainty.

THE ASCENSION OF JESUS CHRIST

In Acts 1:9-12 a cloud obscured the actual “going up” of Jesus; and, as the holy angels announced the ascension in connection with that disappearance, their word identifies that event as the ascension.

INTO THE DARKNESS

Many people, even Christians unfortunately, grow accustomed to being in darkness, which becomes comfortable for them. The comfort is a lie, from the father of lies.

17 ATTRIBUTES OF GOD

I found this on one of my journeys to the great state of Florida.

God so loved the WORLD that he gave his only Son – Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT PARENTING? – Hebrews 12

Finally! Someone has written a book that is long overdo for the over indulgent parents of this country. Across the Earth, far too many people in every society have been mentally conditioned, their environments prepped, and attitudes altered for our “modern” world.

THE GOOD CONFESSION – 1 Timothy 6

The fact that a Christian has been called of God and is equipped for service by the gift of the Holy Spirit does not eliminate the necessity for strenuous effort.

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

The love of Christ has nothing to do with the worldly concept, but when you define love as Jesus does, the then title works!

DO YOU REMEMBER TO PRAY?

Our lives get busy, the day grows long, perhaps we’ve binged more than we care to admit, and before we know it is time to go to bed. Have we remembered to pray throughout the day?

ARE YOU READY? – Luke 12

This parable forms a beautiful emphasis upon the warning against unreadiness and was apparently invented by the Saviour for the sermon of this occasion.

WHY LOVE IS THE GREATEST THING – 1 Corinthians 13

1 Corinthians 13 may be viewed as one of the most important in Scripture, not merely for the truly marvelous things said of LOVE, but also for the firm word therein regarding the cessation of the miraculous age.

THE CITY FOURSQUARE – Hebrews 11+ 13

Believers, after the judgment, shall all be joined in one society or community with the angels. It is called a city which has firm foundations, because it is a community which is never to be dissolved.

THE LUST OF THE FLESH AND THE LUST OF THE EYES AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE – 1 John 2

God so “loved the world” that he gave His only begotten Son (John 3:16), but “world” here has a different meaning. It is an inclusive term for all those who are in the kingdom of darkness and have not been born of God.

COULD CHRIST HAVE SINNED? – Hebrews 4

Regarding the temptation of Christ, the question inevitably appears as to the possibility, even, that Jesus could have sinned; but there seems to be no satisfactory explanation of how any person, even the Son of God, could be tempted to do anything impossible for him to do.

MILLSTONES, STUMBLING, AND BABES IN CHRIST – Luke 17

One of these little ones … is a characteristic reference of Jesus to those who are “babes in Christ,” whose faith is young and weak.
