Mistaking Evil for Good and Good for Evil In God’s creation of the world, we see the statements in Genesis 1 that God saw that it was “good.” Hebrew (tov) (Gen. 1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21,25). Then in verse 31, he says that it was “very good” or “excellent.” Hebrew (tov m’oth). Here God is […]

"And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new…" - Rev. 21:5 Literally standing between the old and the new, there is something about gazing into a new year that makes one consider so much.  New beginnings, a fresh start, turning over a new leaf. As one year passes and […]

Christmas One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it.

THE INFINITE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD Somewhere, in the limited understanding of man, there arose the misconception that God who is omniscient (all knowing) had to become flesh in order to be able to truly relate to man (the product of His own creation). However, my friend, the fact is, the very opposite is true – […]

Doctrinal Emphasis As I’ve been studying the pastoral epistles, I keep being impressed with just how often Paul stresses the importance of doctrine to the two young men that he is mentoring.  In an age where so many preachers want to give inspirational sermons, I feel like the emphasis on doctrine in these books is […]

Inventing Your Own Jesus “Surely Not I . . .” Those are the words of Judas as he was about to betray Jesus. Judas was one of “the twelve” whom the Bible tells us Jesus designated as His Apostles. Judas was present even when Jesus said, “Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one […]

Third Day Miracles The gospel of John tells us the first miracle that our Lord performed. While he and his disciples were at a wedding in Cana, the wedding party ran out of wine (2:1-3).

THE NEGLECTED LAW OF LEADERSHIP God, because He knows the end from the beginning, set the qualifications and responsibilities for a king long before Israel desired to have one.

BEWARE, YE SIMPLE ONES John 1:14 states that “…the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us…” Please do not make the mistake, as some have, of thinking that the word “flesh” in this verse carries the connotation of “carnal.” The Word was made flesh – but never carnal!
