  1. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:26) John wrote his detailed discourses of Jesus (almost half of the verses in John’s gospel consist of His words) approximately 50 years after Christ spoke them, y...

    The Gospel of Peace

    “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” (Isaiah 52:7) Surprisingly, there are more verses containing the word “peace” in the Old Testament book of Isaiah (King James Version) than in any...

  5. The following is from the new book Jews in Fighter Jets: Israel Past, Present, and Future , available from Way of Life Literature in print and eBook editions. In ancient times, the land of Israel was heavily forested. The Bible is a clear witness to this. In Joshua’s day, the hills in Israel’s heartland (the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh) were called “the wood country” because of the forests (Joshua 17:15, 18). Absalom was killed in the forest of Ephraim (2 Sa. 18:6, 8). Apparently it was an oak forest, because his head was caught in the branches of a “great oak” (2 Sa. 18:9). The Gibeonites were made hewers of wood for the tribes of Israel, which would indicate that there were plenty of trees (Joshua 9:21, 23, 27). There was a forest east of Bethel in Bethaven (1 Sa. 14:25). There was a forest in ... Read More View the full article

    The Opened Heavens

    “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.” (Revelation 19:11) This is the final climactic reference in the Bible to God’s opened heavens. Sometimes, as in this verse, heaven is opened in judgment; sometimes in blessing. Sometimes it is the at... More...View the full article

    God's Sovereignty

    “And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?” (Exodus 4:11) This divine rebuke to Moses was occasioned when Moses complained of his inability to speak eloquently for God before Pharaoh. It is also a rebuke to each of us who would dare question ... More...View the full article

    On All the Heathen

    “For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.” (Obadiah 1:15) The book of Obadiah was possibly the earliest of the prophetic books of the Old Testament and is certainly the shortest, with its single chapter. Its theme is God’s coming judgment on the Edomite n... More...View the full article

    Judging Error

    “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:17-18) In order to mark and avoid those professing Chris...

  10. U.S. EMBASSY OPENS IN JERUSALEM (Friday Church News Notes, May 18, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - On May 14, the U.S. Embassy formally opened in Jerusalem in practical fulfillment of President Donald Trump’s statement in December 2017 recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The opening ceremony, which was held 70 years to the day after President Harry Truman recognized the new state of Israel in 1948, was attended by Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and some members of Congress. Ivanka said, “On behalf of the 45th president of the United States of America we welcome you officially and for the first time... Read More View the full article
  11. “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.” (John 15:4) The Lord Jesus has told us to be careful always to “abide” in Him. The Greek word means “remain,” “endure,” “continue,” or “dwell.” He is to be our motivatio... More...View the full article
  12. The leopard ( Panthera pardus ) is mentioned eight times in Scripture. The common Hebrew word is “namer” (naw-mare), meaning spotted. It is a medium-sized spotted wild cat that lives in Africa, the Sinai, the Judean wilderness, the Arabian Peninsula, Turkey, South Asia, Russia and China. It is beautifully colored with dark spots on a tawny coat, but its coloring changes somewhat according to its habitat. This provides excellent camouflage, and it can...

    Good Soldiers

    “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” (2 Timothy 2:3-4) From a Kingdom perspective, a good soldier has several responsibilities. Initially, we can expect challenges, wherein we might “suffer troubl... More...View the full article
  14. The following is excerpted from our free eBook What Is the Emerging Church? A softcover book edition is also available. Read the pdf now . The emerging church uses the term “missional” rather than “missionary.” Missional is trying to build the kingdom of God in the world. Dan Kimball says the term “missional” means that “we don’t ‘bring Jesus’ to people but that we realize Jesus is active in culture and we join him in what he is doing,” and, “we serve our communities, and that we build relationships with people in them, rather than seeing them as evangelistic targets” ( They Like Jesus , p. 20). Missional is building close relationships with the unsaved but not for the gospel’s sake. Mars Hill Church in Seattle used to operate... Read More View the full article

    They Have Their Reward

    “Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.” (Matthew 6:2) Evidently in our Lord’s day there were individuals who, when they went to the synagogue to give of their money, did so with great sh...
