Upper Room Futility

John 20:19, "On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews," In spite of the fact that several women had encountered the resurrected Lord Jesus on that first Easter Sunday morning, and Peter and John had visited and seen with their own eyes the empty tomb, their fear of the Jews was still greate...

The Climax of History!

The final week of Jesus' life in which he went from death by crucifixion to bodily resurrection in the space of three days, was literally the climax of human history. Many wrongfully think that the climax of history will occur at the Second Coming of Christ. But the Second Advent will result in the consummation of history. Thus, the first Advent of Christ is the most signi...

What Is True Christian Spirituality?

Is being spiritual some mystical, ethereal, existential experience that happens inside you and is to be kept private? Is it primarily about striving to become more like Jesus in inner essence of character, being a faithful church attendee, and learning to have your own personnel quiet time, until you can get off this old corrupt world and go to heaven? Or is it something ...

The Jews are God's Chosen People!

It is my firm persuasion that the Scriptures teach that no one can be made right with God. i.e. saved, without being chosen in Christ, becoming a true Jew, and being saved by Christ alone, through grace alone, by faith alone. Immediately you perceptive Bible students will pick up on a phrase I used and accuse me of heresy. That being that everyone must become "a true Jew"...

Standing With and United for Israel!

It's my firm conviction that all Christians should stand with and be united for Israel. In fact, the very title of "Christian" ("Christ-like follower") is contradicted when we fail to do this, since standing with Israel is the foundation of our faith. Also permit me to add one more confession and conviction: In addition, I have abandoned replacement theology. However, le...

The Goodness of God

Romans 11:22a, "Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God..." Many of us were taught to return thanks at the dinner table by beginning our prayer like this: "God is great. God is good." Some years ago a phrase became very popular and spread throughout the church around the world. It was used in a call-and-response pattern. The worship leader or pastor would sho...

Pampering Saints or Preparing Sons?

Hebrews 12:5-8, "And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives." It is for discipline that you have to endure. God is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom his fathe...

The Severity of God

Romans 11:22a, "Therefore consider the goodness andseverity of God..." Our last article was well received because of its theme - "the GOODNESS of GOD."However, the text we used in the previous article contains a second truth that is usually either overlooked and omitted by most believers or denied and vilified by others -- that truth being the SEVERITY of GOD." The word ...

Attending the Burning Heart Bible School!

Luke 24:32, "They said to each other, "Did not our hearts burn within uswhile he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?" Our text is the response of the two followers of the freshly resurrected Jesus after they had been His students in the "Burning Heart Bible School" for one incredible afternoon walk and talk. Having listened to their grief-fill...

Doing The Best of Things in the Worst of Times!

In the midst of very difficult and tumultuous times, a tribute was written to the local pastor of the Harold Church in the village of Staunton, England. It remains today on the wall of the church and reads, "In the year 1653, when all things sacred were throughout the nation destroyed or profaned, this church was built to the glory of God by Sir Robert Shirley whose singul...
