Believed AND Turned
Acts 11:21 (KJV) And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.
This verse is tacked onto the end of an accounting of the work of some diligent followers of Christ, and it gives us great insight into witnessing to others and the divine power of God’s salvation process. This scripture tells us that these missionaries scattered to other cities after their associate and friend Stephen’s persecution. ... Continue Reading →

Not Tinsel But Timeless Truths
John 14:6 (KJB) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
In this Christmas season, amid wrapped presents, decorated trees, and tinsel; don’t lose focus and fail to give your family the opportunity for receiving the greatest gift ever, the gospel message of Jesus Christ. This lasting gift is only available through personally knowing God. It does not come as a wrapped present found under a world-based ... Continue Reading →

Salvation Does Not Rely on Me
Ephesians 2:8 (KJB) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.
Thank God that salvation does not rely on me or my work. I would undoubtedly let myself down repeatedly. However, the spiritual work of salvation is done and finished forever. God sent His Only Son to accomplish what I could never do for myself or others on the cross at Calvary.
Jesus Christ ... Continue Reading →

John 10:9 (KJB) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
Because I live in a rural area, finding pasture brings a picture of cows eating in the field to my mind when I read this verse. This sounds simplistic, but God always has a way of bringing truth down to the bottom shelf by using common ordinary every day things to ... Continue Reading →
1 Corinthians 1:18 (KJB) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
Are we saved, or are we being saved? This difference in wording is as opposing as apples are to oranges or as night is to daytime. The two spiritual camps rest at opposing ends of the spiritual spectrum. A saved heart enjoys sweet eternal fellowship with God while lost hearts are far removed from Him; both now and forevermore.
A ... Continue Reading →
In Part One of the Dangers of the Charismatic Movement, it was shown that the Charismatic Movement elevates men’s words over the final authority of God’s Word – The Bible.

In Part Three, we are going to examine Salvation from the Charismatic viewpoint and examine that to the Biblical ... Continue Reading →

She Did Not Personally Know Jesus
John 4:22 (KJB) Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
Just because a person chooses to worship does not mean they are worshipping God. This woman claimed to worship God with her mouth, but her heart was obviously far removed from personally knowing Him. It is possible to know about God in your head but not have salvation and His presence at work in ... Continue Reading →

God’s Grace Has Spiritual Standards
Titus 2:11-12 (KJB) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
God’s grace is not just a “spiritual throw blanket” for use in covering our sin. Or to allow us to do anything we want. Putting on God’s grace comes with a choice, a cost, His standards, and holy expectations.
God’s ... Continue Reading →

Five Fabulous Promises from God
