Music Has Power

And Saul’s servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee. Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well. And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a ...

Unconditional Election:  Forced or Free to Choose?

tiiptoeing-tulipsUnconditional election is our second stop on the tiptoeing through the “TULIP” theology.  Calvinists say that this principle must rationally follow their dogma of Total Depravity (which they describe as the total inability, not merely sinfulness).  A leading Calvinist Herman Hanko says, “No man can claim ever to ...

Faith Relies On God’s Righteousness

And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: (Philippians 3:9 KJV)

Pressed Out of Measure

Humble yourselves… this is not merely a suggestion.

Or one of many different avenues available for mankind to approach God.

Rather, humbling oneself is an imperative statement!

Man must humble himself before God before He can be lifted up by God!

This verse also declares: he may exalt you in due time…

It does not say that God ...

Truth or Myth?

Isaiah 1:2-4 (KJB) “Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. 3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. 4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they ...

Have You Had to “Eat Your Words”?

And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept. (Mark 14:72 KJV)

An honest person will tell you they have had at least one “hearing the second crow” incident in their life.  Likely, many have had more than one of these desperate and humbling experiences in ...
