II Chronicles 29:1-6
We recently ended a year and began a new one. No doubt, many people spent the last week or two of 2011 reflecting on what had transpired over the past year. Many people may have experienced things in their life in 2011 which brought about great change in their life. It may have been the loss of a jOB or the start of a new one. Some families lost loved ones while other families welcomed new additions to their household. As we looked back on 2011 we also had the
A Tree of Life
“In the midst of the garden” (Gen 2:9).
It is the center of paradise.
The central tree of beauty in a garden of peace.
The fruit of the tree (Gen 3:22)
They had to eat of it. (implies that they had to eat of it daily, not merely one time to have eternal life. They would live forever as long as they ate of it.)
NOTE: Man was free to eat of this tree before he disOBeyed; it seems that he may have eaten of it already, yet the eternal life was not eternal, it
Take the Word of God and turn with me to Philippians 4:10-13
Years ago I heard a message on sin, hell, and salvation. That Easter Sunday I realized I was a sinner bound for hell, unless I repented and started a personal relationship with God’s only begotten son Jesus Christ. When I did, I received forgiveness for my past, present, and future sins, but most importantly I would enter heaven when I died. My life has never been the same. God led me and my family to Rough River Baptist Churc
This is my first attempt at writing a Wednesday night devotional, I was told it was pretty good. Let me know what you think.
The Bible Should Be Read and Studied
As time permits I would like to share 3 things about the bible that God has laid on my heart. 1st that we should study the bible, 2nd that the bible is the infallible word of God, and 3rd that God gives a stern warning to those that mess with his word. Now take your bible and turn with me to 2 Timothy 2:15;

Faith Through The Ages - Hebrews 11:13
1. Compelling Faith (Forward Looking)
2. Confirmed Faith (Established)
3. Concurrent Faith (Bi-directional)
4. Consummate Faith (Fulfilled)
1. Compelling Faith . Forward Looking .
Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
2. Confirmed Faith . Established Faith .
And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto
him, Art not thou also one of His disciples? He denied it and said, I
am not.(John 18:25)
For our own sakes we should mark the steps which led to Peter’s fall. One was

When forewarned, he resented the Mater’s foretelling, and declared
that though others might deny Christ he never would. When we grow
boastful we are in great peril. Safety lies in a consciousness of our
own weakness, and in implicit t

If we will admit it, sometime during life, we will feel abandoned by a loved one. What I am saying to you that most people feel abandonment during their lifetime, and there are certain normal feelings that go with feeling abandoned or deserted. Those feelings are often sadness, disappointment, anger, and even rage. These feelings are all normal and human. These feelings are not necessarily rational or intelligent. Such feelings are often directed at the person who abandoned you. Sometime during
Instruction Manuals, Construction Plans & The Bible
May 18, 2011
Ever tried to put something together without reading the entire instruction manual? The parts and steps that look like they should go together we usually end up taking back apart because of something we didn’t read.
Any contractor worth his weight will tell you before starting any construction project you should read and go over the entire set of constructions plans. The better you know the whole set of p
The Revelation of Jesus Christ
(a Practical look)
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: (v. 1)
We often forget that the title of the Book teaches us that it is a revealing of Christ. We like to focus on the prophetic aspect of this great Book, but too often we shove Christ in the background as the Laodicean church did (Rev. 3
Christians who still hold the Jewish people accountable in the role of Jesus' death are being transparently un-Christian and I don't mean merely in the sense that Jesus taught forgiveness, or that it's not nice to promote genocide, no matter how angry you might be. The point or at least one of the main points, of our religion is that Jesus died for humanity's sins. I recognize that just because the story had a theological happy ending doesn't mean that the Crucifixion was an

1. One major flaw concerning dispensationalism is that it is wholly composed of conjecture. There is no proof that allows us to build such a huge doctrine from no scriptural base at all! If it were any other doctrine, we would reject it immediately as having no scriptural basis. Though many good men have adopted the theory, it still suffers from genuine validity. I can think of no other doctrine that is so widely accepted with so little fact! Keep in mind though, t
We Need Men
(chapel message and boys camp)
Boys, we need men today. This country is in a drought for real men. We have too many sweet smelling, long haired, earring clad, aqua-net pretty boys trying to be men nowadays. We need real men! Men work; men spit; men stink of sweat, and are not afraid to talk up; be a man! We don’t stand in front of a mirror all day primping, and spraying our hair with hair spray! (They don’t make a man’s hair spray, it is all the same inside the can!) We

First Electronic Printing March, 1998 by FFEP “But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:19-20) “And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us.” (Acts 16:9)
Making a Difference
(A chapel message-preached at the Landmark Baptist Temple Oct. 30, 1989))

I stand before you today a broken man, ruined by the foolishness of life. Ruined by bad choices; by self gratification; ruined, and never more restored to innocence. I’ve wasted many years, ignored many joys, and shattered many

Mt 13 The Sower
“But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.” (20,21)
We have the parable of the sower in this passage. Here, the peculiar phrase “Yet he hath not root in himself” seems to throw the focus of the passage in a d
