• NOW THAT SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS THE LAW OF THE LAND WHAT IS THE CHURCH TO DO

    by
     
    On June 26, 2015 something happened in the United States of America that I never thought would happen. Many celebrated! It was a very sad day! THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT HANDED DOWN A DECISION ON HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE THAT INCLUDED:
    1) That all 50 States of the Union may grant licenses for homosexuals and lesbians who desire to get married.
    2) That all States that DO NOT grant licenses for homosexual and lesbian marriage MUST recognize the licenses of the States that do.
    WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT THIS WOULD HAPPEN IN AMERICA?

  • CHALLENGES FOR THE MAN OF GOD

    by
     
    Today is FATHERS DAY when people all across America will be HONORING THEIR FATHERS. Indeed we MUST HONOR GODLY FATHERS! Throughout scripture God is looking for MEN to be MEN OF GOD. Sadly there were certain times when HE COULD FIND NONE…Ezekiel 22:30. But most of the time there was a remnant of GODLY MEN who stood for the TRUTH OF GOD! Today, GOD IS LOOKING FOR THOSE WHO WOULD CHARACTERIZE AS BEING "MEN OF GOD."

  • THE UNDERSTANDING OF MARRIAGE

    by
     
    We are facing a situation in America today that would have never been considered an issue in the mind of our founders 239 years ago when our Nation was born. It is a situation we would have never considered 50 years ago or even 25 years ago that PEOPLE OF THE SAME GENDER SHOULD BE UNITED IN MARRIAGE. BUT WE ARE FACING IT HEAD LONG EVEN AS I SPEAK! THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT IS CONSIDERING THE QUESTION OF WHETHER PEOPLE OF THE SAME-SEX MAY RECEIVE A LICENSE TO MARRY! BY THE END OF THIS MONTH WE WILL KNOW HOW THE COURT HAS DECIDED!

  • Natural Disasters and the Judgement of God

    by
     
    All around the world and here in America NATURAL DISASTERS and EXTREME WEATHER are becoming more
    and more prevalent. (News Paper Article). The question that comes before us is ARE THESE NATURAL DISASTERS AND
    EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS JUST A COINCIDENCE OR ARE THEY DESIGNED BY GOD TO GET OUR
    ATTENTION, TO WARN US OF IMPENDING JUDGMENT, OR ACTUALLY A PART OF HIS JUDGMENT UPON
    INIQUITY? The answer to that question is not hard to figure out at all when we look into the Word of God, particularly to the
    Book of Nahum.

  • O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD

    by
     
    Many of us miss out on the blessings of the Lord because we have not taken the effort to get to know Him intimately. God wants us to get to know Him in an intimate fashion so that He can be evident in our lives but the choice to get to know Him is OUR’S. He is just WAITING FOR US TO TAKE THE STEPS to get to know Him intimately.

  • THE WOMAN WHO FEARS THE LORD

    by
     
     Ever since the rise of the "WOMENS' LIBERATION MOVEMENT" it appears that the idea of what a woman is has changed in the thoughts of the world. God made the woman to be honored, respected and cared for, but the "WOMENS' LIBERATION MOVEMENT" has made her out to be less than what God intended into an independent, self-sufficient, powerful and sometimes arrogant person who, at times, has expressed the lack of a need for men.

  • A Sincere Devotion to the Local Church

    by
     
    In the late 1960’s and early 1970’s there was a movement among Christianity called “THE JESUS PEOPLE.” They were the Christian version of the “HIPPIES” and had some interesting views about the Bible and the Local Church. Many of them came to the conclusion that the Local Church was not necessary and thus their commitment to the “ORGANIZED CHURCH” was extremely limited. Even after the days of “THE JESUS PEOPLE” such an attitude toward the Local Church has continued in the minds of some and consequently the commitment to the Local Church is not high among certain believers in Jesus Christ.

  • A GROWING PRACTICE OF PRAYER

    by
     
    As we continue our study in “THE DISCIPLINE OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH” we come to another tremendous component included in our SPIRITUAL LIFE and that is A GROWING PRACTICE OF PRAYER. Recognizing that any relationship will grow based upon the level of communication between those involved (husband and wife; friend with friend; employer with employee, etc.), it is therefore obvious that OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD WILL NEVER GROW PROPERLY IF WE ARE WEAK IN THE PRACTICE OF PRAYER.

  • A CHEERFUL ATTITUDE OF GIVING

    by
     
     One of the CLEAR INDICATORS of SPIRITUAL GROWTH is maintaining a CHEERFUL ATTITUDE OF GIVING UNTO THE LORD. Now that statement itself may be enough to cause some Christians to wiggle in their seats, but it is true. In 2 Corinthians chapters 8 and 9 where the Word of God teaches us principles of FINANCIAL GIVING, verses 5, 10, and 11 imply that SPIRITUAL GROWTH RESULTS IN INCREASED FINANCIAL GIVING.

  • A GROWING LOVE FOR GOD

    by
     
    One of the clear INDICATORS OF OUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH is that of A GROWING LOVE FOR GOD. Often we fail to keep a close account of our SPIRITUAL GROWTH and before long we find that we have drifted from God. But when we have a GROWING LOVE FOR GOD we will know it because we will experience it and will therefore be able to have no doubts of our CONTINUAL SPIRITUAL GROWTH. So, WHAT DOES A GROWING LOVE FOR GOD LOOK LIKE? Consider the words of Christ in Mark 12:28-34.

  • THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST

    by
     
    The SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST has been a subject of discussion ever since Jesus said in Revelation 22:20, "SURELY I COME QUICKLY." At times it has even been a controversial subject because of the way different people approach the scripture. As with any topic of scripture, THE PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST WILL ONLY BE RECEIVED WHEN ONE APPROACHES THE WORD OF GOD LITERALLY...THAT IS...GIVING TO EVERY WORD OF SCRIPTURE THE SAME MEANING USED IN NORMAL ORDINARY USAGE UNLESS THE CONTEXT SUGGESTS OTHERWISE.

    There are certain subjects Christians should study on a regular basis that will enable them to grow in Christ and become more effective servants of the Lord. Unfortunately those subjects are neglected these days due the emotional, sensual, carnal, casual, entertainment Christianity that dominates the Body of Christ today.

    Today is THE SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE SUNDAY all across America. In fact this entire week, sandwiched between this Sunday and next is referred to as THE SANCTIFY OF HUMAN LIFE WEEK and on January 22nd rallies, marches, meetings and services will be held with the intent of praying for and encouraging the reversal of the 1973 SUPREME COURT DECISION, ROE V. WADE, THAT LEGALIZED ABORTION. (I remind you that in America, even though abortion is legal, it is still immoral and sinful). How sad it is to consider that since 1973 literally MILLIONS OF INNOCENT LIVES HAVE BEEN KILLED DUE TO ABORTION!

  • CHOSING THE BEST OVER THE GOOD

    by
     
     The NEW YEAR is a time for personal evaluation, and personal evaluation with the right response is always pleasing to the Lord. It is very proper to look back at the past year with the intent of seeing what we can do in the NEW YEAR to improve, particularly in our relationship to the Lord. The NEW YEAR HOLIDAY is sort of a time for PERSONAL INVENTORY. (Inventory at Dull’s Market). In conducting a PERSONAL INVENTORY there are some questions for us to consider:

    As we come together in the sanctuary of the Lord on this last night of 2014, and as we anticipate the New Year of 2015, we would do well to focus on the priority GOD HAS FOR US IN REFERENCE TO HIMSELF. That priority has nothing to do with NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS or TURNING OVER NEW LEAVES, but rather taking a GOOD LOOK AT THE GREATNESS OF GOD AND THEN RESPONDING PROPERLY.

  • SIX IMPORTANT DAYS

    by
     
    Our lives are lived on a DAY BY DAY basis. But within that DAY BY DAY process of life, there are certain days which are very meaningful to us. These days include our birthday, our graduation day, our wedding day, our baptism day, or retirement day, and so forth. As we study the Word of God we find there are CERTAIN DAYS THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT AS WELL because of what took place on those days. So in this message, I am going to highlight SIX IMPORTANT DAYS that made a difference in the course of the world in general, as well as in our own personal lives specifically

  • THE MAGI RESPONDS TO THE CHRIST

    by
     
    ABOVE ALL OTHER THINGS, CHRISTMAS SHOULD BE A TIME FOR CHRISTIANS TO RESPOND TO JESUS CHRIST BIBLICALLY! Many times we get caught up in the hustle of the season and forget what the season is all about and end up NOT RESPONDING TO CHRIST BIBLICALLY! (Lady at the drug store). In our text we see the account of the MAGI traveling miles and years to see the Christ-child. There are some great lessons from this account we can and should learn. The way the MAGI responded to the birth of the Christ-Child is a clear biblical model for how WE SHOULD RESPOND TO CHRIST TODAY!

    When God came to earth in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, not only was it a great HISTORICAL EVENT, but it CHANGED THE WORLD! For instance: 1) During Christ’s time on the earth, the world experienced more peace than it ever had up until that period of time. 2) The calendar itself is based upon the birth of Christ. 3) The entire religious system of the world changed. 4) People had a new understanding of Who God is.

  • THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF CHRIST

    Perhaps the most significant theme of Christmas is THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST! In fact, THE VIRGIN BIRTH OF JESUS CHRIST is EXTREMELY SIGNIFICANT in reference to our SALVATION! Many songs in the Christian hymnal speak of the VIRGIN BIRTH OF CHRIST.
    1) SILENT NIGHT: “Round yon VIRGIN, mother and child.”
    2) THERE’S A SONG IN THE AIR: “For the VIRGIN’S sweet boy is the Lord of the Earth.”
    3) HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING: “Offspring of a VIRGIN’S womb”
    4) GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN: “This day is born a savior of a pure VIRGIN bright.”
