Believing on the LORD Jesus Christ (By Bro. John Young, Green Meadow Bible Baptist Church, Kalamazoo MI)

In this message we review what the purpose of Soulwinning is and why it is important, when possible, to emphasize the whole Commission in our soul winning presentations. Not only to save the souls from hell but to also to help sanctify them. We show how salvation (not just from Hell but for all aspects of our lives) is by believing on the LORD Jesus Christ and the Gospel is what we preach in order to led them (through the power of the Holy Spirit) to accepting Jesus as such. We take note of the
 

"The Wise Counsel of Joseph, Genesis 41:1-36

Genesis 41:1-36, “The Wise Counsel of Joseph” Introduction In the Old Testament, before the scriptures were written, God gave the kings of the various countries dreams in order to warn them of danger to the country and in matters of other importance. In this passage, God gave Pharaoh two dreams. In the first dream, Genesis 41:1-4, Pharaoh dreamed about 7 fat fleshed cows and 7 ill favoured cows. The 7 ill favoured cows ate up the 7 good cows. It was a strange dream. Pharaoh awoke

The Mystery of the Triune Godhead

Hello Family of God, (Parentheses) within Bible passages cited are used to expound on the word/s in [brackets] which precede the parentheses. ALL CAPS are used for double emphasis; this is my way of saying, "It says what it says, and it means what it means." The Bible is self-explanatory (i.e., "the best defense of Scripture is Scripture itself") in its interpretation (i.e., "the perspicuity of Scripture"), but even to this day, we find unnecessary criticism from Biblical "scholars" and the

Days of Lot

Hello Family of God, "Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But in the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Luke 17:28-30) There is rise in sexual immorality in today's world, and its rapid increase is unprecedented; but should we be surprised? that is, should Genuine and

For [NOTHING IS SECRET], that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, [THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN] and come abroad."

The Absolute Sovereignty of God

Hello Family of God, I will be focusing on the Absolute Sovereignty of Almighty God; how all Christians are to understand its purpose in Creation according to His unchanging Nature, and the Eternal consequences of willful rebellion and rejection against the Most High. My message will consist of: I. Resistance and willful rebellion against the Sovereignty of God. II. Absolute Faith and Trust in God is connected to understanding God's Sovereignty. III.

Guaranteed Victory in God and Christ over the enemy

Hello Family of God,    My apologies for my poor Grammar and punctuation errors; my hope for the reader is for him/her to attain a deeper Understanding of God and Christ through His Words found in Holy Scripture. "Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: [And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also v

Seventy Times Seven

Hello Family of God,  "Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, [UNTIL SEVENTY TIMES SEVEN]." (Matthew 18:21-25) It was taught by the Rabbi's of Jesus's day that forgiveness was to be granted to those seeking forgiveness up to three times; this was taken out of Old Testament Scripture where God had forgiven the enemies of Israel only three time

Spirit Empowered Living

Hello Family of God,   "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for [the devil sinneth FROM THE BEGINNING]. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might [DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE DEVIL]. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not from God, neither he that loveth not his brother."

Do Not Interpretations Belong to God?

Genesis 40:1-23, “Do not interpretations belong to God?” Only God knows the future. In the Bible, God recorded all of the knowledge of the future that God wants us to have. The Bible is the word of God and can tell us what is important. The philosophy of man, the religions of man, the interpretations of man, and the idols made by men, cannot help a person when he dies. The interpretations of man, false religions and prophets, are erroneous. Joseph is an example to the every Christian

Who is Like God?

Hello Family of God, There has been so much humanism attributed to God, and much of the Bible concerning the nature of God has been misinterpreted by scholars and theologians as a result of applying the faculties of the limited mind of man in determining the eternal mind of God; especially when God Himself "decides" to respond or react according to His Divine Nature and Immutable Attributes. We see examples of this in Scripture where God seemingly acts in a way which appears contrary to His

A remnant

Hello Family of God,   My heart grieves over the lost who are deceived and led astray by the cares of this world, its riches, enticements, and earthly pleasures which result in spiritual decay and ruin. Worldliness (e.g., "gambling, bars, nightclubs, wealth, sensuality, physical attractiveness, lusts, etc.,") has crept into the hearts of many "professing" Christians and are now leading them down the broad way towards ultimate destruction and eternal condemnation in the Devil's world whic

Transparent Inscrutability

Hello Family of God, What God has revealed to His chosen people is contained in Holy Scripture; However, there are mysteries hidden in secret which God Himself will not disclose at this present time (Deut. 29:29; Dan. 2:22; Mk. 13:32; Lk. 8:17; 1 Cor. 4:5; 13:12; Eph. 1:9; Col. 1:26; 1 Tim. 5:24-25; Rev. 10:4). We want to make absolutely certain that if anyone claims to have "hidden or secretive" knowledge that is NOT revealed in the Word of God, that we are to examine such claims utilizing

Wherefore he saith, [God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble]. [Submit] yourselves therefore to God. [Resist the devil], and he will flee from you.

Dispensational Stewardship - Part 2 of 2 (Discerning Proper Doctrine)

Dispensational Stewardship - Part 2 of 2 (Discerning Proper Doctrine)

In the second part of our two part study on "Dispensational Stewardship" we show how the believer can actually discern the Bible's doctrine without first learning an artificial framework theology. We show how the natural divisions and terms already in scripture are there to aid the believer in their study. In this overview of the Bible's terms we focuses primarily on understanding what Testaments, Covenants, Promises, and Laws are and how they work together to fulfill the Will of God. We e

Dispensational Stewardship - Part 1 of 2 (Understanding Your Divine Mandates)

In this two part general overview on "Dispensational Stewardship" we discuss Bible theology and how we should view and study the scriptures as contrasted by Dispensational and Covenant theologies. We believe the biblical view is realized when we look at the scriptures as a servant learning and serving in their God given role in life or as called here their "Dispensational Stewardship". Unlike the former two theologies which impose a man made structure and divisions onto the scriptures in attempt

Psalm 89 - Part 4: The Sure Mercies of David are for you, So Endure Suffering In Light of God's Plan

Psalm 89 ends with the psalmist longing and asking for the sure and tender mercies of David that were promised to all men through David's house and covenant of Mercy. This shows us that this Spiritual house given to David by God was not just for King David but for all men who would join themselves to the Builder of that house and to David's descendant, the Christ, the Holy one Of Israel, King Jesus.

So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Frien

Child of God, or child of the Devil?

Hello Family of God,   We are living in perilous times where many are those who are self-deceived into believing that they are saved, and are children of God; but they have failed to do a self-examination of their fruits. What sort of fruits are you producing? Do you possess Divine and Unconditional Love? Do you LOVE your enemies and pray for them? So many claim to do such, but the LORD knows their hearts and see them for the hypocrites that they truly are. "And you hath he quickened,
