Oh Christendom

Though posted 2 years ago, after reading it again this morning I felt to repost it. IT IS AT THAT DAY proud and luxurious Christians shall learn that God is no respecter of persons; that all sects and names shall be swallowed up in these two kinds, sheep and goats, just and unjust; and the […]

POLITICIZING THE FAITH

Another excellent message offered this week from Herescope. POLITICIZING THE FAITH Cause célèbre for worldly evangelicals! By Pastor Larry DeBruyn In his book The Backslider, in the chapter titled On the General Nature and Differing Species of Backsliding, English clergyman Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) wrote that, “All backsliding from God originates in a departure of heart […]

President Honors Christ’s Sacrifice

Interesting.. WASHINGTON — In openly personal terms, President Barack Obama on Tuesday honored the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, saying he draws inspiration from an eternal story of pain, suffering and redemption. “We are thankful for the sacrifice he gave for the sins of humanity, and we glory in the promise of redemption in the resurrection,” […]

Resurrection

The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.  Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the LORD out of […]

The Missing Presence of Christ by Rolfe Barnard

Before shutting down tonight I came upon this week’s featured sermon at SermonIndex and as its too late to start listening to it, I’m posting this as much for myself, as a reminder to listen tomorrow, as for anyone else who may be interested. (ahaha) Back in December I posted the link to a library […]

Temple Institute wants to Offer Biblical Passover Sacrifice

A quote and a question, (IsraelNN.com) The Temple Mount Institute has filed suit in its fight for the right to sacrifice a sheep on the Temple Mount prior to Passover, as commanded in the Torah. “The command to perform a Paschal [Passover] sacrifice is a positive commandment; the punishment for failing to perform it is […]

Warning to Professing Christians

Clip put together by Youth for Jesus. You can listen to the complete Sermon at Sermon Audio (Great sermon folks..im listening now) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.” Matthew 7:21

Definition of ‘Christian’ – The Devil’s Dictionary

This left me pondering.. I dreamed I stood upon a hill, and, lo! The godly multitudes walked to and fro Beneath, in Sabbath garments fitly clad, With pious mien, appropriately sad, While all the church bells made a solemn din— A fire-alarm to those who lived in sin. Then saw I gazing thoughtfully below, With […]

Isaiah’s Vision- God’s Holiness

In the Presence of God’s Holiness In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, […]

Ezekiel’s Vision- The Glory of God

The Mystery of the Glory of God. “Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the River Chebar, that the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God. In the fifth day of the month, […]

Jews and the Christian Faith..

The quotes below are from a recent article posted at Charisma titled: When Jews Assimilate Into the Christian Faith In the early 1970s, a significant number of Jews committed their lives to Yeshua and came to the conviction that they should call themselves Messianic Jews rather than Christians. There were several reasons for this. One […]

Misinterpreting Scripture (Genesis 12:3)

Every Christian would agree that the misinterpretation of scripture[s] is the source of most, if not all, false doctrines and teachings. That is not to imply that we have to have our ducks-in-a-row 100% concerning all scripture–for, as long as we’re here on earth, we’ll be constantly learning and receiving revelation concerning God’s Word. It’s […]

From the Archives: Who is my Brother?

There continues to be confusion within the body of Christ concerning just who our brethren–our brothers and sisters are. In light of a recent post, I dug this excellent message out of the archives which answers the question, “Who is my Brother?” Christian Zionists regularly assert their brotherhood and solidarity with ethnic Jews (being descendants […]

Who Am I?

Who am I – Why am I here – What is wrong with the world – How can what is wrong, be made right? Warning: Some images are very graphic. (HT)

The Christian’s Relationship to the Mosaic Law

A wonderful companion message to the one posted last evening, What were Gentile believers grafted into?. The Gentile Believer and the Law We have said that the experience of the ‘wretched man’ of Romans 7 is not the normal experience of a converted Gentile. It is, nevertheless, a sad fact that it may (and often […]

What were Gentile believers grafted into?

This short but important message comes from one of my favorite websites, Messianic Good News. It’s important because there still continues to be many within the body of Christ who don’t understand this truth. I know, because of letters received from readers here. May I share one of the greatest joys which has come from […]

“Truth cannot be argued” (a conversation)

Dave2 posted this under the topic concerning Ellis Skolfield, and I wanted to share it. The old man awakened in the dark. As he turned, he could not even raise his hand before him, as the weight of the darkness held him still. “Where is there light?”, he thought. “If I can find light, then […]

Do we really understand Persecution “for Christ’s sake”?

Let us address the issue of persecution. I realize that what we western believers call persecution is embarrassing when compared to others around the world, to say nothing of former and present martyrs. But I want us to meditate on Christ’s admonition on how we should respond to persecution. In His Sermon on the Mount […]

God’s Chosen People – Part 4

Part (1) – Part (2) – Part (3) We have been examining the teachings of Paul on the subject of God’s Chosen People as particularly set forth in the first eleven chapters of Romans. Paul was uniquely qualified to shed light on this due to his own personal background as a highly educated and very […]

Letters of John Newton (Amazing Grace)

Inscription on John Newton’s Tombstone: John Newton, Clerk, once an infidel and libertine … was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the faith he had long laboured to destroy. July 24, 1725 – December 21, 1807 From: The Collection of John Newton Letters […]

God’s Chosen People – Part 3

Part (1) – Part (2) The New Testament makes it plain that in God’s eyes, Abraham had two very different kinds of descendants. Some were children of promise, chosen of God, whereas others were children of the devil and of the synagogue of Satan. It is only when we view the Old Testament history of […]

God’s Chosen People – Part 1

Last year I came upon the first installment of what was to be a continuing series on the topic of God’s Chosen People at Midnight Cry Ministries. But because their publication, the Midnight Cry Messenger, is only published quarterly I held off sharing any portion of it. As of this quarter, 3 parts in the […]

About Persecution: Questions…

“And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached […]

Human Inability

“They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God..” Ephesians 4:18a “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him.” John 6:44 Coming to Christ” is a very common phrase in Holy Scripture. It is used to express those acts of the soul wherein, leaving […]

John MacArthur: Read the Gospels, JC is not PC

This article was posted, by The Washington Post, in the “On Faith” section of their website on Aug 14, 2009 Let’s be brutally honest: most of Jesus’ teaching is completely out of sync with the mores that dominate our culture. I’m talking, of course, about the Jesus we encounter in Scripture, not the always-gentle, never-stern, […]
