Are You Prepared?

From Herescope Reading and watching the video embedded within this article is a wake-up call to the Church in the West. It also bears witness to the ridiculous “non gospel” we dare call The Gospel which is taught and preached in America.   quote: While reviewing church history recently I was reminded of some of […]

The plot to kill our Lord was evil and made by evil men

Good message from Mike Ratliff at Possessing the Treasure. The persecution of Christians in these last days will most probably be at the hands of professing christians. This is nothing new. Just look at what happened to those who led the way into the Protestant Reformation. In any case, be encouraged my brethren. Stay focused […]

30 AD – 70 AD: “The Crimson Thread Remained Crimson”

Fascinating message from Adam at Pursuing Truth. Quote, In about 30 AD, Jesus said something to the scribes, Pharisees, and people of Jerusalem which must have been earth-shattering to His audience at the time: “See! Your house is left to you desolate” (Matthew 23:38).  This mirrors what happened in the days of Jeremiah: “I have […]

Judgment is coming

Excellent post at Mike Ratliff’s blog tonight. Hope you will take time to read it folks. When our Lord returns, and we know that He will because He said He would, it will not be as it was at His incarnation. He came as a suffering servant, being born as humble child to a common family. […]

The Scepter Shall Not Depart From Judah UNTIL…

Adam has posted a wonderful teaching at Pursuing Truth Blog. Quote, Sometimes a whole lot of meaning is packed into one word. This is the case with the word “until,” where it appears in Genesis 49 in one of the earliest prophecies in Scripture. Jacob, later named “Israel” (Genesis 49:2), was the grandson of Abraham, […]

The Substance is come and the Shadow has gone; and we do not remember it

“Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my […]

ISIS inadvertently creates Gospel curiosity in Iraq

Mike Ratliff put up a new post today. Though it answers no specific questions concerning the situation surrounding the urgent prayer request posted below, it offers evidence of the mighty power of the Gospel to prevail. John 12: – “Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, […]

Affliction

“The Lord does not measure our afflictions according to our faults, but according to our strengths, and looks not what we have deserved, but what we are able to bear.” –  (George Downame) Dear believer, I desire to write you about something with which you are well acquainted: affliction. Much has been written on affliction […]

Sunday’s Coming and That’s My King!

Shadrach Meshach Lockridge (March 7, 1913 – April 4, 2000) was Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, a prominent African-American congregation in San Diego, California, from 1953 to 1993. He was known for his preaching across the United States and around the world. Sunday’s Coming That’s My King You can listen to the entire sermon, My […]

Keeping the Feasts?

By Peter Cohen, Messianic Good News Should Christians keep (or celebrate) the feasts that were prescribed under the Old Covenant or have they become obsolete under the New Covenant? Is there any harm in observing the old covenant feasts even if there is no obligation to do so? What about observing the Sabbath? The command to […]

“At the Last”

A sermon (No. 667) delivered on Sunday morning, December 31, 1865 at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington, by C. H. Spurgeon. And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof. Proverbs 5:11-12 “at the last…”  The wise man saw the […]

The Hallway to the Saints’ Rest

A Lovely message of hope by Richard Baxter (1615-1691)  Source: The Old Time Gospel (a favorite place to read)  The hallway to heaven is not barricaded anymore. The flaming sword no longer bars the passage to Paradise, for Christ has provided the way in. The porch of this temple is magnificent, and the gate of it is […]

To Cut off the Sinner from All Hope in Himself

 One of the most prevalent motifs that runs through the whole Bible is its constant reminder of the insufficiency of man. While this may seem all too obvious, we need constant reminding of this critical truth in our everyday lives. This goes for the non-Christian, because he has no hope apart from Christ’s mercy, and […]

What Do We Say About This?

Rick Frueh at Judah’s Lion: What Do We Say About This? quote.. An evangelical pastor in Iran was arrested in October of 2009 and given the sentence of death unless he recanted his faith in Jesus Christ. He has been tortured, and in July of 2011 all appeals were rejected. In January of 2011 he […]

Israel and the Church: (Part 4)

Part (1)  – Part (2) – Part (3)  Israel and the Church – Fulfillment of Promise, by Adrian Birk   Fulfillment Theology  I have given the third position the title of fulfillment theology since it asserts that the promises of the Old Testament find their true and complete fulfillment in Christ and his Church. A […]

Israel and the Church: (Part 1)

I’ve been doing a lot of reading this week on the topic of Israel, the Church, and Christian Zionism. One book in particular, Christian Zionism; Road – Map to Armageddon by Stephen Sizer, has been very interesting due not only to the author’s research but to the numerous quotes contained in the book from a […]

O’ JOYOUS EASTER MORNING

“The Lord is risen indeed!” Luke 24:34 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto […]

Peace On Earth?

“Regretfully, this scenario is being played out by certain members of the church. Peace on Earth is being sought by political means believed to be both scriptural and spiritual. ‘God’s bid for peace in the world will be won through political conquests by the church.’ For this belief to exist within the church means something […]

O’ Holy Night

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! […]

Do You See A Child Or A King?

This message by Connie Giordano (Walking in Truth Ministry) couldn’t have arrived in my mailbox at a better time. Within the comments under the post below (“…being a Christian, I know, while Jesus promoted charity at the highest level, he was not self-destructive”) Cathy questioned the term, the baby Jesus, as applied by Bill O’Reilly in one […]

The Genesis 12:1-3 Question Ignites a Firestorm (again)

Looks like this bishop stepped in it: U.S. Bishop Says Jews Have No ‘Exclusive Right’ To Israel quote.. A special Vatican meeting on the Middle East ended Saturday (Oct. 23) with a flare-up in Catholic-Jewish tensions, after an American bishop declared the Bible does not give Jews privileged rights to the land of Israel. “We […]

Saving Faith: ITS COUNTERFEITS

This is a very good but sobering excerpt from A.W. Pink’s, Studies on Saving Faith There are those who have a faith which is so like that which is saving as they themselves may take it to be the very same, and others too may deem it sufficient, yea, even others who have the spirit […]

The Great Divide between Church and Synagogue

The website, Messianic Good News, has many excellent teachings. I thought over the past two years I’d read them all, but came across one today which somehow I’d missed. In light of the continued growth of the Hebrew Roots Movement, its definitely one worth reading. In his introductory remarks to his scholarly work “The Jewish […]

Bill Keller, center-stage

If interested you can read the article, Televangelist Counters Ground Zero Mosque with Christian Center But what interested me was a comment left by a reader, in response to the article, And then maybe we can do a remake of “West Side Story” and have the Christians in one gang and the Muslims in the […]

Ezekiel’s Temple and the outflow of living waters..Part (2)

See Part (1) THE PURPOSE OF THE VISION What then was the immediate purpose of this vision? I think this question has a simple answer in the light of the passage itself and that of other Scriptures. Ezekiel prophesied during the captivity. That captivity was to be of seventy years duration, as predicted by Jeremiah. […]
