PEACE AND COMFORT IN TIMES OF ADVERSITY

The reaction of the child of God, or his or her response, to adversity, and the trials of mortal life must be one of patience, submission, humility, prayer, love, hope, and faith.

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 SIX FUNDAMENTALS of CHRISTIAN RELIGION – Hebrews 6

Fundamental truth of the most basic nature is openly denied or presumptuously ignored by an age that seems to feel that it has outgrown such elementary things as these; and, therefore, we may be thankful indeed for the inspired outline of things which actually constitute fundamental Christian doctrine.

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 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.

CHRIST AND A STONE – THE ROCK OF OUR SALVATION – Matthew 21

The example of a rejected stone becoming the chief stone was founded on historical fact.

REGARDING CREATION – John 1

Throughout the Bible, creation is declared to be an act of God and Christ, or God through Christ; and this Biblical explanation of how the universe came into existence is the only reasonable and intelligent explanation ever given.

ADVERSITY IS THE NEW PROSPERITY – CHRISTIAN SUFFERING – Romans 8

It has been proved again and again by Christians that:

PROSPERITY is the blessing of the Old Testament.

ADVERSITY is the blessing of the New.

IF GOD IS FOR US, WHO IS AGAINST US?! – Psalms 46

This psalm is both historical and prophetic. It refers to things that happened in Israel; and it is a prophecy concerning the New Testament Church.

LET US NOT SLEEP – LET US KEEP AWAKE AND BE SOBER – 1 Thessalonians 5

Darkness is used here as antithetical to light, and very similarly to the writings of John; these passages refer not to literal darkness and light, but to the state of rebellion against God (darkness) and to the state of obedience (light).

WORK, LABOR AND PATIENCE – FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE – 1 Thessalonians 1

These six graces:
WORK
LABOR
PATIENCE
FAITH
HOPE
LOVE
properly united in the hearts of people, and thus conjoined will regenerate the human race!

THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS US WITH GROANINGS WHICH CAN NOT BE SPOKEN – Romans 8:26

There are two intercessors for the Christian: (1) Christ at the right hand of the Majesty on High. (Hebrews 7:25) (2) The Holy Spirit within the Christian himself.

THE KEY TO RIGHTEOUS LIVING – WALKING BY THE SPIRIT – Galatians 5

The total corruption of the antediluvian world had been achieved by the evil one when the “imagination of men’s hearts” had become evil, and only evil, without intermission (Genesis 6:5).

THE 7 MIRACLES AT CALVARY – Matthew 27

There are actually seven Calvary miracles, the greatest and most wonderful, of course, being the resurrection of Christ. The rending of the veil, occurring simultaneously with the death of Christ, must be associated with that death; and, looking more closely, it is plain that the veil, in practically all of its functions and even in its colors, was a most instructive type of Christ.
