Hello Family of God,
[True Worship from the Heart, The Absolute Holiness and Purity of God, The Giver of Life, and The Eternal City]:
I want to mention from the outset that there isn't much time left before the Coming of the Lord for His Bride. Nothing else matters if you have not made peace with God through His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Tomorrow is not guaranteed to anyone, and every man or woman must be Absolutely certain that they are indeed a child of God; for the Lord God t
Hello Family of God,
I will be sharing some FACTS regarding the Triune God of Scripture and His Immutable Attributes. It seems as if the God of Holy Scripture has been accused and slandered among many, even those who profess to belong to Christ and God. I will begin with . . .
[Why God must be Triune in BEING]:
Simple Answer: God is Love; and what I mean by that is the Divine/Perfect Love shared within the Triune Godhead from Eternity past (cf. Matt. 17:2; Jn. 17:24; 2 Pet. 1:17)
"Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David." Christ is called the "Son of David" by the Old Testament believers for a reason and often those recognizing Jesus as that Christ, when he ministered physically on earth, would call upon him for mercy. One of the main reasons for this was because of the teaching here in Psalm 89. God had given Israel King David and His Spiritual House as a picture of the one day true King "the Holy One of Israel" that would come, granting both Spiritual and Physical
I guess I still got a sermon section here. 😉
Thankful For The Love Of God
Love is not an emotion (though it may effect them) - love is a choice. Love is an action verb. Always seeking the best for others.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Romans 5:6-10 For w
[Knowing your Adversary and Archenemy]:
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not [war] after the flesh: (For the weapons of our [warfare] (strateia) are [not carnal], but [mighty through God] to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down [imaginations], and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a [readiness] (Grk. "hetoimo") revenge all disobedience, when your obedience
The Cost of a Soul
We are a cost conscious people. We always want to know the cost of what we are going to buy, or even the cost of what someone else has bought. Food, clothes, car, house, or vacation; we want to know the cost.
We would never dream of buying anything without first finding out how much it cost. But how many in the Christian world consider the cost of their belief system, their salvation, or their soul?
First let me say that I am not suggesting that these things nee
Doctrinally Psalm 89 holds all the key facets of our faith in regards to understanding how we are eternally saved from wickedness, sin, and death. Its placement in the collection of Psalms is like a crescendo, as the last chapter in the stormy waters and fears of this evil world, dealt with in book three, so that we can ease into the calm sheltering protection and security in God, dealt with in book four. The goal of Psalm 89 is to instill confidence in our eventual salvation, even when, outward
Old things are passed away . . .
I was on the broad way (road) leading to destruction (Matthew 7:13).
I was lost (Luke 19:10; 2 Corinthians 4:3).
I was condemned already because of my unbelief (John 3:18; compare 1 Corinthians 11:32).

Every day of the month, as the Lord leads, read that day's chapter of Proverbs and post whatever the Lord lays on your heart using any verse in the chapter as your text. It can range from a short devotional to a sermon to a commentary. The purpose is that this will stimulate Bible reading among some saints that just haven't gotten started yet, and allow folks to share hidden treasures from the dark sayings of Solomon. Enjoy, have fun, and above all, be edified from the living Word of the Living
The two branches of God's rule on earth is the Church and the Courts. In Psalm 82 we deal with the authority that God has given to the Judges of the earth. We learn that they are treated as "gods" because they have been given authority from God to dispense His justice, over Mankind, on His behalf. While this Authority is invested primarily in the Judges it also extends over and applies to the executives as the executors of the judge's ruling of the Law.
In this sermon we deal with the Judge
Genesis 39:21-23, “But the LORD was with Joseph.”
Genesis 39:21-23, “But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it. The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.”
Grace: It’s Meaning and Source
By Jim Foley
Country Baptist Church
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
If you are a Christian there are words that you have been familiar with all of your Christian life. Many of them are more or less taken for granted; we just don’t dwell on their meaning. As Baptists this word, “grace” is a fundamental of the faith and often used in sermons and lessons.
Confusion on who and what the Church is in this day and time abounds. We believe the Church is not an Israel of any type and that Church and Nations have always had separate functions in both Old and New Testaments. In the last sermon (on Acts 15:1-11) we showed how we are not Israel. In previous sermons we showed how the New Testament Church is an extension of the Old Testament Melchizedek Priesthood, now with Christ as it's High Priest, in Heaven, before God's throne. In this sermon we also sh
Often we hear many say that the church is the true Israel and Christians are the true Jew. While there is an interconnected relationship between them in God's service, Acts 15 makes it clear these are separate and distinct Institutions of God. Failure to keep Israel and Church separate will ultimately lead to compromising the Grace of God given towards the Gentiles and Church, which are in Christ, apart from the Covenant Nation of Israel.
Acts 15 shows certain men, Judaizers, who believed C
Sermon on Depression - Lighthouse Baptist Church: San Diego, California. I have had the privilege of hearing Pastor Doug Fisher preach on numerous occasions at The Summit at Solid Rock Baptist Church in Berlin, NJ. There has been many messages that he preached that has helped me as a pastor and issues that we were dealing with in our church.
Leviticus 20 gives the Penalties for committing the Abominations listed in Leviticus 18. The primary sin from which the rest flows is the abomination of "whoring with Molech". This basically was the giving of their new born babies to be killed by burning over a fire on the hands of a metal Idol called Molech. This evil practice was done by people who wanted to get rid of their unwanted children in exchange for the idol to give them good crops. This practice was popular with promiscuous men who d
God is long suffering and forgiving towards sinners, giving them many opportunities to repent and do right. However, God lets us know that there are certain immoral actions that cannot be allowed to continue openly in a just society. In Leviticus 18 God explains the baseline moral requirements for the nation to be allowed to remain in His Holy Land. In this sermon we show the moral sins God particularly hates. Including Abortion, Infanticide, Incest, Molestation, homosexual acts, Bestiality, and
“The LORD was with Joseph”
Genesis 39:1-6, “And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, brought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down hither. And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. And Joseph found gra
Thank you for the fine message on Romans 1:16 & 17 concerning the gospel of Christ; true belief in Christ, repentance, humbleness in the sight of God, and salvation in the work of Christ, and His righteousness, alone.
Thank you also for your four thoughts in soul-winning efforts, your love for soul-winning, and bringing out the fruits of repentance. Keep up your soul-winning preaching and efforts. "In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest
Thank you for your kind words. "As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man to his praise." Proverbs 27:21
Thank you also for this wonderful statement. I am sure it will be a blessing to all.
A wonderful devotion and commentary of Joseph Bro. Alan. I have always loved the story of Joseph, not just for the story, but also for the inspiration his life is in so many ways. It is not limited to simply old testament history, but gives us today the inspiration to overcome under even the most adverse of life's situations.
While Joseph is certainly a type of Christ, when viewed in this capacity he exhibits the power and determination to use his life situations for God's glory as well as
