God Has Already Provided Salvation

(John 3:15-16; Romans 5:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18).  All judgment for our personal sin was poured out upon Christ and judged (John 5:27). At the First Advent (Christ coming as a man, as Messiah), Christ was judged for our sin, at the Second Advent (Second Coming) Christ is Judge! Everyone who has rejected the Cross of Christ at…

Scientific Laws And The Universe

DOCTRINE OF THE SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND OF THE UNIVERSE The continuation of the universe and earth all depend on the omnipotence and immutability of Jesus Christ (Col. 1:17, Heb.1:3). “Scientific laws” is a misnomer. This is a Divine law. Science can observe and classify. Only God can guarantee the continuation of these. The universe will not always exist as it…

Points To Ponder

The following is a theological presentation of Biblical knowledge manifested in Scripture and developed here for thought processes of the individual reader as guided by the Holy Spirit; ponder and reflect upon them, one by one. Any extension of Scripture revelation is an infinite undertaking. There is progress in doctrinal knowledge, but there is no increase in Scripture-revelation, only our…

Religious or Related

Someone once wisely said:  “I left the rituals of religion for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.”  Authentic Christianity is NOT a religion — religion is ritual without reality!  Christianity is a personal relationship with the only living God, through faith in Christ Jesus (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Jesus condemned religion and religious people. Read Christ’s harsh words for yourself,…

God’s Uniquely-Born Son

To begin our lesson, we will address one important question: How is it that we are ‘born sinful?’ Well, we are born as a duplicate of Adam as he was spiritually, after the fall. We share his original sin and his sinful nature by genetic transmission. Thus we share his spiritual death. Adam’s sin becomes our sin; his sin nature;…

The Seven Glories of Christ

THE SEVEN GLORIES OF CHRIST Nowhere in all of Scripture (except the book of John, chapter 1, and the book of Hebrews chapters 1-3) is the uniqueness of the Glory and Divinity of the person of Christ so compactly presented. Open your ‘Study’ Bible to the first chapter of Hebrews.   Notice the first word in Hebrews chapter one is “God.” The…

I Am

“I Am that I Am” Jehovah Elohim (Lord God) emphatically declared His Deity and authority “I am that I am” (Exodus 3:14). Then Messiah (Jesus the Christ, the Son of God), in the Gospel of John and Revelation, declared the same essence of Deity. “I AM the Bread of Life” (John 6:35). “I AM  the Light of the world” (John…

Ministries of the Holy Spirit

Five ministries of the Holy Spirit which occur immediately at the point of salvation*:  1). The Baptism of the Spirit places the believer into UNION with Christ, making each Church Age believer a member of the Body of Christ, the Church, the royal family of God (1 Corinthians 12:13; 1 Peter 2:9). 2). The Indwelling of the Spirit transforms the believer’s body…

Armageddon: Recommended Reading

Always remember that the battle is the Lord’s. At the Second Advent (Christ’s return), Jesus Christ will destroy the forces of Satan. God Himself will save His chosen people from total annihilation. Current events unfolding from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the conflict in Israel, could be signaling Satanic movements toward fulfilling possible end-time prophecy, eventually leading to the…

Victory Over Death

Victory Over Death, or Victory Over the Fear of Death The Apostle Paul expressed well both the life of the believer, and the physical death of the believer in Philippians 1:21: “For me, to live is Christ and to die (physically) is gain.” Paul’s life after he was converted by Christ Himself on the road to Damascus was totally devoted…

The Fall of Lucifer

Introduction to the Prehistoric Past and the Fall of Lucifer (Satan).

There is a very real spiritual battle in the heavens, throughout the universe, and in each of our personal…

Truth MUST Be A Generational Thing

The basis for our study begins in these two short paragraphs: Life and death are generational. Truth and untruth are generational. Sin is generational. Faith and forgiveness are generational. Mercy is generational (Luke 1:50). Justice and injustice are generational. Righteousness and lawlessness are generational. With these things in mind, parent(s) have the responsibility to teach their children the Truths of…

Thy Word Is Truth

“Everyone that is of the truth, hearth my voice.” (John 18:37) “But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them because they are spiritually ‘dormant’“ (1 Corinthians 2:14). The Bible is the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:16). HIS MIND is a terrible thing to…

Lifestyle Faith

In the corridors of darkness, we wrestle our own inner-demons (not literal) who control the mind by controlling the flesh. As we struggle with our fleshly appetites, we can only be victorious by confession, repentance, and forgiveness from God, who will forgive every time because Christ paid for every sin (past present and future sin). Every believer will always be…

Divine Operating Assets

DIVINE OPERATING ASSETS Okay, what does that mean? Divine operating assets can be viewed as a God-given toolbox, one full of tools for use in specific situations while you’re operating within the realms of your daily life. The right tool for the right job. A dark house on a dark street may not be visible. But if the night lights…

God’s Love

Okay, let us begin another journey into GOD, together:   A CLOSER LOOK AT GOD’S LOVE The Bible tells us that God is Love, but that does not imply that He is sentimental. God does not bless or reward our human good works or our sincerity in wanting to please Him (Isaiah 53:6; 64:6). As fallen mankind we do not and…

Humility is Orientation to Reality, Authority, and Truth

The Cross of Jesus Christ, Yeshua, the Messiah, is the starting place for genuine humility. Genuine humility is oriented to reality (God), and to proper authority (God’s Words of Truth).  Humility may be defined as “freedom from subjectivity by proper orientation to God. Humility is the virtue of teachability and respect for authority.” In humility, God lifts the soul to…

The Subjection of Truth

THE SUBJECTION OF TRUTH: THINGS FOR EVERY AMERICAN TO THINK ABOUT.  MORALITY IS TRUE! Americans, in general, have lost their sense of objective moral truth. Sentiment is not an excuse for compatibility with truth. Truth is not a relative thing. The compromise of truth negates objectivity! Without absolute truth there can be no certainty. Without certainty there can be no…

Heavenly Messages From The Bible — Part Four: “It Is Written”

“It is Written!” As I meditated on the mysterious supernatural nature of the Word of God, I thought about the proclamations of our Lord, when He so often stated “It is written.“ WOW! What powerful words! What powerful authority Christ gave the Scriptures (Matthew 7:28-29). What a powerful endorsement. Christ validated the Old Testament and then fulfilled its promises in…

Used with permission.   Genesis, Chapter Six opens with a brief statement regarding the antediluvian (pre-flood) civilization.

Bible Study

“It Is Written!” “The foundation for knowledge is the Bible.”  C.S. Craig When Christ began His Earthly ministry, He overcame the temptations of the devil with a threefold statement: “It is written.” Then on the Cross He defeated the devil with our salvation by stating that “It is finished.” These two declarations of Christ still echo through history and the…

Psalm 23

The Shepherd/sheep relationship is meant to be calming and re-assuring in Psalm 23 — read it often, and then just meditate on each expression.

The Sharp Edges of Faith — A Must-Read

THE QUESTION OF UNANSWERED PRAYER AND THE ADDICTED WHO FEEL DEJECTED ARE THE OBJECT OF THIS STUDY. THE DEFINITION OF FAITH: CONFIDENCE IN THE INTEGRITY OF GOD! We believe in a transcendent God, all-powerful, yet personable. But, so much about life cannot be understood rationally, especially unanswered prayer. Can we talk? I’m not certain that prayer is as complex as…
