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…

Barrier Of Sin

An invisible wall, insurmountable, that literally separates imperfect mankind from PERFECT GOD. This barrier prevents man from having a relationship with God. Six bricks comprise this barrier: 1). MAN’S POSITION IN ADAM 2).  SIN 3). THE PENALTY OF SIN 4).  PHYSICAL BIRTH 5).  MAN’S RELATIVE RIGHTEOUSNESS  6).  THE PERFECT CHARACTER OF GOD This barrier is removed by the atoning work…

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;…

Meditate on these Truths

SCRIPTURE FOR MEDITATION Many topics and verses below are also viewable on the Home Page and/or in various categories under “Tree of Knowledge.” There may be some variation from editing, but repetition is a good teacher. Also, some people will search “Meditations” or “Lectures” before reading the “Home Page” or the categorical studies listed under “Tree of Knowledge.” WOTM wishes…

Faith Perception

(Based on Roman 8:28-32). Your understanding of salvation and the filling of the Holy Spirit comes by means of faith-perception. Knowledge, understanding, acceptance, belief.  Faith-perception (meditation and recall of doctrine) makes the power of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual life of the believer, a reality in our thinking. Reality is NOT what we feel, NOT what we assume, NOT…

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…

Internationalism

Satan is the enemy of nationalism. Satan offers internationalism in its place in an effort to establish his own utopian kingdom on earth. Satan’s intent is a universal state which he can control and sit on the throne as God without God’s interference. How arrogant is that? Internationalism opens the door to a world dictator – the Anti-Christ. The first…

Socialism — Two

Socialism is the human attempt to provide a utopian economy with political, social and environmental ‘perfection.’ But only Jesus Christ will accomplish a perfect environment at His Second Coming. If a free society is to remain free there must be a strong military, to protect the freedom of human volition. Therefore, every citizen must know and understand the Divine Gift…

World

World in the New Testament is frequently the word “cosmos,” which generally refers to the system that grew out of the fallen nature of Satan and Man. “The devil’s world” is an expression of rulership apart from God. Cosmos Diabolicus means the world system headed by/of Satan — his behind the scenes rulership through human leaders of governments, corporations, religion and…

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…

Socialism – 101

The New World Order. Socialism is a human attempt to provide a utopian economy. Socialism reduces people to the lowest common denominator. Socialism is a human philosophy designed to gain power for a few ‘enlightened elite’ based upon class warfare, jealousy, envy, greed, laziness — by monetary seduction, and equality. Remedies for equality simply create more inequalities. Socialistic ideology advocates…

Communion

The worship ceremony in which the believer concentrates on the person and saving sacrifice of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-26). Christ commanded “Do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:24b). The believer is required to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that he/she is in fellowship which is achieved by confession (1 John 1:9), when partaking of Communion….

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…

Time

Time is: The very process by which God’s Plan unfolds and rolls out. God created angels, then time and man to resolve the Angelic Revolution Conflict, and restore eternity, in time, through Jesus Christ. The consummation of time will occur when all creation is restored to it’s original status-purpose — to the praise and glory of God. That which God…

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). Most of the world lives unaware of the Angelic Warfare all around them, yet suffering, aggression, corruption, and evil explode throughout the earth, as a result of this invisible warfare. 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…

Auditions

There are no auditions for heaven! The exception was Jesus Christ. Reason: No one else qualified as a perfect ‘unfallen’ human being, without the Adamic Nature. Since Adam chose to disobey God by the temptation handed to him from the Woman, every human being since Adam has the imputed nature that sinned. Mankind, because of the Love and Mercy of…

The Pride Of Disbelief

THE PRIDE OF DISBELIEF Pride goeth forth to conquer the world But returns to the door and asks for more He who serves others well and says little, merits more Than he who boasts, and clamors at the door Kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall — things destined to be Life goes on as time marches on — to eternity But…

Naturalism

Naturalism is the philosophy that there is no supreme power or supernatural agency in creation, no spiritual influence, that all life is chance without a God. (See “Atheism/Skepticism” (atheist) for additional understanding.)   What does God’s Word say in Acts 17:28: For IN HIM we live, and move, and have our being.”

The Trinity

THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY is unique to Christianity. No other faith, religion, sect, or philosophy advocating one God also proclaims that there are three who are God. This apparent paradox does not mean that there are ‘three gods in one,’ but that one God exists as three distinct persons who are coequal, co-infinite, and co-eternal, all three possessing the…

Foreknowledge

God is omnipotent! God has always known everything there is to know — there isn’t anything He has not always known. God gave life (reality-creation) to time (the history). He always knew. God ordained history which He always knew. God’s foreknowledge became, by His decree, reality. God IS! We are! Time became “to be.” God IS “I Am — 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…

Divine Establishment

Divine Institutions There are four major baseline principles for mankind, clearly defined and explained and consistently verified in Scripture. God ordained FOUR Divine Institutions through which the Laws of Divine Establishment function:  1). Individual 2). Marriage 3). Family 4). The National Entity God delegated a primary authority within each institution under each institution: volition for the individual, the husband for…

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…

Heavenly Messages from The Bible — Part One: “The Living Bible”

“The SPIRIT-FILLED, SUPERNATURAL BIBLE is the most precious book ever written, the most important knowledge ever given, and the most important record this world will ever possess. There in not anything more important than the Word of God!” — C. S. Craig  Truly, there is nothing truer in all the world than the Word of God. “All the original Words…

The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer, as taught by Christ our Savior and LORD. The Prayer of Simple Faith. The believer’s model for Prayer. We are to pray in this manner. Matthew 6:9-13: What does each phrase express? What is the Lord teaching us by these precious words? Well, He is teaching us to be specific. To be reverent. To be basic. To be…

Star-Flier

STAR-FLIER   Our fleshly lives are but a flash-fire, doused by Eternal Water. The twilight years prepare our needy soul for destiny in Christ. Soon, the gathering in the sky; flight with angels on high. No longer a world-crier but a star-flier, singing wind-songs in heavenly chorus — praising God forever more.    C. S. Craig – 7/19/2020

Christian Objective

The Christian objective is to be conformed to the “Image of Christ” (Romans 8:29) by the renewing of our minds. We must continually renew our minds with the “Mind of Christ” (1 Corinthians 2:16). Our objective is to be “imitators” of Christ (1 Corinthians 4:16;  Ephesians 5:1). We are to become a spiritually mature believer at which point we have…

Truth is Absolute!

We can learn truth and think truth, but God IS Truth.  Truth is a person — Jesus Christ! The Bible is not only true — it is Truth — “Thy Word IS Truth.” Every category of Truth is an aspect of God’s perfect purpose and design. God doesn’t learn truth — God IS Truth. There exists the Trinity of Truth:…
