Rejoice in Hope The passage we see given us in Romans 5:1-4 is one that should rejoice the hearts of all people, especially those who have taken Jesus Christ at his word and have been saved by their faith in the work that he did specifically for them on the cross. God made an opportunity for all people to be perfectly forgiven for their sin and wonderfully have their hope secured for everlasting life. This is why those who now…
Can eternity be bridged by a conjunction? “THEREFORE being justified by faith we have peace with God” Rom 5:1. Never has a single word been so well placed as the conjunction that begins chapter 5 of Romans.
All that goes before this word so perfectly linked to all that we read after it.
Peace with God, it is that which God desires for all mankind. But only understanding and accepting the first four chapters of this wonderful book will again to it.
What Saith The Scripture? Salvation, is it by works or by faith? This is the question addressed by Paul in this chapter and it is curious that there remains still so much confusion. The answer is plain, but many have sought to confuse the words in the chapter to make them not mean precisely what they say. What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? 2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he…
Privileged we are for the opportunity to teach and to tell of the hope all people can experience and know for certain. The Gospel is our resting place, it is where all people can come to know true joy.
Below are the avenues through which we teach and tell.
Knowing that it is through scripture and the learning of what it teaches, that we gain the greatest hope and joy in and through our growing relationship with Christ, our ministries are focused completely to this end.
There we go, crazy KJV Only people yet again trying to throw water on personal preference. But wait…
Are these not logical questions?
When a Pastor sets out to correct the Bible, is he not inconsistent with the very calling upon his life?
His calling is to “preach” and to “teach” the word of God. The assumption is that he has it, not that he needs to create it, correct it, add to it or take from it.
But what do so many in this Laodicean age do respecting it?
They create doubt. This was done before.
Do we believe the Bible or don’t we? Never has there been such inconsistency among those who profess to believe their Bibles, especially Pastors.
The adage seems as true today as when it was first used, ‘the congregations are more conservative than their pastors’.
More than ever do we find doubt created in that great book, until ultimately, people don’t trust it enough to read it.
The Condemnation Of The Preacher Eight of the most profound words from the Apostle Paul that should fill the desire of every man who understands his role as a minister of the Gospel. I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. Rom 15:19 The preaching of the Bible is the central focus of every service. There is no other work that a man can undertake that has greater importance than the preaching of the Gospel, that in the hearing of…
SETTING TRAPS “Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: And he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.” Prov 26:27 Another OPPOSITE in the Bible is the wicked who go about setting traps or digging pits to trap the righteous, but they themselves get caught up or fall into them. “He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his…
