1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many
What a fantastic verse this is. We cannot see how the love of money can affect, say sins like adultery, but the Bible says it is the “root of all evil.” Every evil act finds its root in the love of money. Again, this is more than amazing to us. As I mused on this verse, I realized that the roots seldom resembl

14 “For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me;
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (Mt. 29: 19)
Without the first two words of our text verse, we have nothing; without "go ye" we have no great commission. "Go ye" then, is essential to every Christian; it is not a suggestion, but a command. Our part is to "go", and the Lord's part is to "do" the actual work. We enter into a holy alliance with the Father when we go.
A partnership: We meet
“Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.” (Titus 1: 9)
“But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:” (Titus 2:1)
Doctrine is important. We live in a time when it seems that doctrine is shoved back into the background of our faith; it seems that we sacrifice doctrine for other truths, and overlook the value and importance of sound doctrine. Our doctrine determine
Please forgive me if I have posted this before, I tend to lose track of these things.
Shepherding "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." (psa. 23:1)
That verse says it all. Actually, there need be no further explanation than "The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want" We shall not want for anything, which implies that all our needs, and wants, are met in Christ, the true Shepherd of our souls. The verse speaks if the entirety of sustenance; I shall not want anyth
1 Corinthians 15 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (v. 58)
The Lord would have us to be steadfast, which has to do with our walk, and unmovable, which has much to do with our standing. Jesus was steadfast when he set His face toward Jerusalem (Lk. 9:51), He was determined that nothing would change His course until He got where He had determined to go.
“Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.” Isa. 5:14
In our text verse, we see one of the saddest verses in the Bible. Hell always makes room for more; she is never full.
In his book, “End Times” J. Dwight Pentecost says that scientist speculate that hell may be a planet. They say that the hottest fire there is, is a black fire that burns so hot

The Egyptians were tyrannical taskmasters, and their desire to make things hard for Israel actually weakened their own cause more than they ever seemed to think it would. When wickedness seeks to hinder righteousness, it always hurts itself in the long-run. In t

"His name shall be called Wonderful" -- Isaiah 9:6
IN olden times all names meant something, and this is still the case among Indians and all other people who are living in a primitive way. Whenever you know an Indian's name and the meaning of it, you know something about the Indian. Such names as Kill Deer, Eagle Eye, Buffalo Face and Sitting Bull tell us something about the men who possessed them.
This tendency to use names that are expressive still crops ou

Psalm 55:22: Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
When we meet for prayer, we bring all our needs and burdens and cast them upon the Lord. 1 Peter 5:8 promises a load of burdens on us all, for the devil is, as a roaring lion, walking about, seeking whom he may devour. Burdens came into the world because of sin. Yet one verse before, we learn that we can

James 1:12-16 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. (13) Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: (14) But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. (15) Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is
“Followers of Christ”. If we were to take a survey, and ask born again believers “What does it take to be a disciple” I am afraid that many would answer that a disciple is merely a follower of Christ. Though this is true in one sense, it falls short in another; to follow Christ--to really follow Him--entails much more than walking in a crowd that is headed in the same direction--it is giving Him our all, our entire self, from a heart of dedication and a faith that is sincere,
Taught March 10 and 17 at church.
Jonah 2:9: "Salvation is of the LORD."
Salvation can mean temporal deliverance or eternal salvation. The Hebrew word is "yesh-oo'-aw"--almost the same as the word for Jesus ("yesh-u-a"). In Hebrew, there is here one extra letter in the word for salvation, which adds to the sense of not only physical deliverance, but all kinds of salvation. All are of the LORD.

Daniel 3 (Devotion) “He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.” (v. 25)
In Daniel three, we have one of the more interesting Bible stories in the entire Bible. When Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were thrown into the fiery furnace, they had a unique experience; they had the privilege of walking with Jesus! Had they not went through the fire, they nev
(Jail ministry) “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Cor. 15:55)
Never underestimate the power of Satan. He is wily; He is deceitful; he is a destroyer. The devil has deceived every man that ever lived, since the beginning of time! No one has ever escaped his mighty grasp—no one that is, except Jesus. The greatest of men have fallen to Satan’s tricks; the greatest generals, conquerors of the world, have all fallen to the wooing and
This is the message I preached on February 15th at the Gospel Mission. Webster's 1828 Dictionary gives this as his first definition for friend: "One who is attached to another by affection; one who entertains for another sentiments of esteem, respect and affection, which lead him to desire his company, and to seek to promote his happiness and prosperity; opposed to foe or enemy."
He also defines friendly as: "Having the temper and disposition of a friend; kind; favorable; d

This is the first of seven Acrostic Psalms (see also Psalms 34, 37, 111, 112, 119, and 145), where each verse (or each section of eight verses in the case of Psalm 119) begins with a different letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Psalms 25:1 A Psalm of David. Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.

The Unbelief of the Dreams of Joseph by Pastor Steven Anderson
Pastor Steven Anderson does not believe that two dreams of Joseph is fulfilled in the proper interpretation of the symbolism in Revelation 12:1-6. Pastor Anderson states, “So because of that dream that Joseph had, people will often look at Revelation chapter 12, and they see a woman clothed with the
