Her Husband In my opinion, one of the most beautiful verses in the entire Bible is Hosea 2:16: And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and thou shalt call me no more Baali. This verse is amazing.  But before we can understand it in all of […]

PRINCIPLE IS THE MAN Principal and principle are homonyms. Homonyms are words that are pronounced alike but may or may not be spelled alike, at least that’s what Mrs. Wetzel my high school teacher said.

LIVING BENEATH It is often stated concerning Christians that we live beneath our privileges in the Lord. Of course this is true, as I am sure every Christian that is aware of the promises given unto us, will agree. Our position in the Lord entitles us to many wonderful things. The things of God are […]

I Corinthians 11:23-33 Notice in verse 24 He says “this do.” Jesus expects every Christian to observe the Lord’s Supper. It is not something that is optional but rather it is a direct command from Jesus. “This do” signifies a physical act of partaking. One cannot spiritualize this commandment no more than one can spiritualize […]

We hear so much about preaching being divisive. I, for one, still hold to the belief that preaching is a true unifier – uniting men of like precious faith!

Eph. 4:5 is the setting for this study.  A Marine recruiting sergeant happened upon an impressive sight while traveling in the country backwoods. At one roadside farm, he saw targets painted just about everywhere – on the barns, on fences, and on all the outbuildings. And exactly in the center of each target’s bull’s eye, […]

Eternal Security or Eternally Secure? We are aware of the fact that many are taking up with the doctrine of what is called “eternal security,” which in itself would be a great thing if the Scriptures bore it out.
