Many in the modern church like to rely on “grace alone” to excuse their ungraceful manner of living. They live like the world six days a week and then put on a ‘holy’ face for Sunday. Many of them vote Democrat or Socialist in the elections and think they won’t have to answer to God for approving abortions, homosexual lifestyles, or other anti scriptural stands. I single out Democrats because they are the party that openly supports murdering the unborn as if they weren’t real humans even though Scripture clearly declares they are – Continue reading →
Why is the American church seemingly so powerless against the atheistic worldview sweeping the land? The Bible declares that light overcomes darkness and “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.” (Prov. 14:34). So why isn’t the church overcoming the darkness? Perhaps it isn’t the church at all? Jesus said –
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. “Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” – Matt. 5:14-20 Continue reading →
“These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass:
I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first.
Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. Continue reading →
The Book of Revelation begins with seven letters that Jesus dictated to seven churches in Asia. Their message is a timeless road map for the success for any church that cares to listen. They reveal what is good and what is bad in every church and they are as applicable today as they were when first written. They catalog all the temptations and deceptions that Satan uses on us all, but more importantly, they reveal how to overcome them. Continue reading →
