The title of this article is “Feed My Sheep”. As you may know, in Luke 21 the Lord Jesus told Peter several times: “Feed My Sheep”. Of course Jesus did not have those wooly animals in view. Jesus used the word sheep as a picture of the people of God. The sheep represented people for whom the Lord Jesus suffered and died on the cross. Peter had to feed these people spiritual… Read More

Our message today is taken from the Word of God in Matthew 6:6: “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” Prayer is both the greatest blessing that God has given to us and also the most difficult spiritual activity that God has called us… Read More

What is the mark of a genuine faith and conversion? One of the most important marks of a genuine faith and conversion in Jesus Christ will be prayer, that you practice prayer in your life. The Christian life is a life of prayer. Prayer is communion with God. Prayer stands at the core of a genuine Christian life. Prayer is the breath of a Christian life. It is not a luxury. It… Read More

Today I speak to you on the truth of Providence. Providence is the biblical doctrine of God’s care for the world He made, and God’s directing the world and everything that is in it after His eternal plan to attain the end that He determined. Providence is God’s actual bringing about in the world what He has willed. We read in Ephesians 1:9, “Having made known unto us the mystery of his… Read More

A study of Revelation 20:1-3 The Binding of Satan We have come to a passage in Revelation 20 from where theologians have derived the theory of the Jewish Millennium. The Latin word Millennium means “one thousand”. It is the theory that before the end of the world comes there will be a glorious thousand years where the Jews are evangelizing the world, and almost the whole world will come to worship Christ….

What is heaven? In this article we are going to give the biblical answer to that important question. Those who are familiar with Old Testament Scriptures will remember the story of the visit of the queen of Sheba with Solomon. The queen of Sheba had heard of Solomon’s greatness and glory and wisdom. Her subjects had tried to give her an idea of what it was like. They spoke vividly and strongly… Read More

Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Ephesians 1:5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the… Read More

For He hath made Him to be Sin for us; who knew no Sin: That we might be made the Righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21) 1. His miraculous Conception in the Womb of the Blessed Virgin. Christ not being conceived in a natural, but supernatural Manner, he did not partake of our natural Corruption. It was impossible he should, because he was the supernatural Production of the Holy Spirit…. Read More

God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself (2 Corinthians 5:18-19), drawing the scheme of their reconciliation, ransom, and redemption: this flows from his divine counsels, who does all things after the counsel of his will; as there was a consultation held about the formation of man, no doubt there was one about his ransom and recovery; and which, with great propriety, may be called the council of peace, that was… Read More

2 Samuel 23:5 Although my house be not so with God, yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and sure. The covenant which the sweet Psalmist of Israel, in his last dying words, has respect unto, is the covenant of grace: founded on grace; filled with the blessings of grace. It is called the covenant of peace (Isaiah 44:10), because a grand article of it is… Read More

“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures” (I Corinthians 15:3) The awful and solemn death of Jesus, His crucifixion and blood-shedding, is the pillar of the Christian religion, and the grand foundation of the church of God. The sinner who is awakened to see and feel his lost, ruined, and undone state; to behold the inflexible holiness and justice of God, and brought at the same time to feel himself… Read More

“There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.” (Psalm 46:4) These words are to be understood in a figurative sense, as applicable to Gospel times. This river designs the Gospel, the streams of which are its doctrines, which are living waters that went out from Jerusalem, and which publish glad tidings of great joy to all… Read More

The Spirit of God in a man’s bosom searches the deep things of God, so as to lead him into a spiritual and experimental knowledge of them. What a depth in the blood of Christ-how it “cleanses from all sin,” – even millions of millions of the foulest sins of the foulest sinners! What a depth in His bleeding, dying love, that could stoop so low to lift us so high! What… Read More

Have you any other rock but Christ? I do not ask you whether you have a feeling enjoyment of it. I know you will rejoice in Jesus when the Holy Spirit enables you. But have you any other refuge? Can you go into eternity resting upon any other righteousness but His? Can you lean upon, desire, or want any other than Christ’s righteousness? “No,” says the soul, none but Christ! None but… Read More

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:4) The works of the law, and the righteousness of the law, are synonymous terms. By the former, we are expressly told, no flesh can be justified: nor consequently, by the latter, as performed by us. Why? Because every man is a fallen creature; and to the corruption of his… Read More

We have come to that section of Revelation where Satan is loosed out of the Bottomless Pit. This is the moment in time that is called: The End of the Thousand Years It is the end of the period of time that is symbolically called the 1000 years, which is nothing else than the completeness of God’s plan for the binding of Satan. At the end of this symbolic 1000 years God… Read More

And as it was with Peter and the rest of the disciples, so it is with all sensible sinners and true believers who see there is no other to go to for life and salvation but Christ; not to the law of Moses, which accuses, curses, and condemns, and by which there is neither life nor righteousness; nor to any creature or creature performance, for there is a curse on him that… Read More

Are you afraid of the consequences of death, and what will come after? Throw yourself upon God, in Christ, and you are safe. Christ’s righteousness is law-proof, death-proof, and judgment-proof. By Augustus Toplady

God’s love to His elect is not of yesterday; it does not begin with their love to Him, We love Him, because He first loved us. It was bore in His heart towards them long before they were delivered from the power of darkness, and translated into the kingdom of His dear Son. It does not commence in time, but bears date from eternity, and is the ground and foundation of the… Read More

The desire of my soul is to die rejoicing that God’s just and holy law, broken by me in thought, word, and deed, has been fulfilled for me by the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The language of Paul on this subject has long been sweet and precious to my soul. Writing to the Corinthians, he says, “But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us… Read More

“and might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, having slain the enmity in it,” (Ephesians 2:16) There was such enmity between Jews and Gentiles that it took the greatest of all works to bring them together. It took the work of Christ on the cross. As we see the glory and power of the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary to put away our sins… Read More

The Lord Jesus Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many. As man dies but once, Christ was offered but once, or He suffered and died but once. And that was not on His own account, or for His own sins, “but to bear the sins of many.” It was not for angels but for men, and these not a few, but “many,” which is said to magnify the grace… Read More

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” (Romans 3:10) What then is the righteousness of the Scripture, and who is the righteous man before God? The answer is direct. None but the Lord Jesus Christ. He, and he only, is set forth under this title; and he alone is the Righteousness of his people. It is high treason to talk of any other; and it is equally high… Read More

“Then said He, Lo, I come to do they will, O God…” (Hebrews 10:9) This was agreed upon in the covenant of the eternal Three. The Father undertook to maintain the honour and dignity of his law and justice. His co-equal Son undertook for his people to come in their nature, and to stand in their place and stead; to act for them, and to suffer for them. As their surety, he… Read More

We draw assurance from the death of Christ, because we realize that it is not possible for Christ to have died in vain (Isaiah 53:9-10). It is blasphemy to imagine that Christ shed His blood in vain. The intent of Christ in His death cannot be frustrated. He shall see of the travail of His soul and be satisfied. That which God our Savior meant to do by dying shall be done…. Read More

The one great truth of the Bible is that God has taken to Himself a people chosen in Jesus Christ and He has bound Himself to them in the cords of perfect faithfulness and the cords of a perfect marriage. We call that the covenant of God’s grace. Just as a man marries a wife and they two are bound till death in the fellowship of love, so Jehovah has taken to… Read More

  The Doctrine Of Imputed Righteousness Defended In A Discourse Preached In London In the Year 1759. ——————————————————————————– Isaiah 45:24 Surely shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness ——————————————————————————– William Romaine ——————————————————————————– 2 Corinthians 5:21 He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. IT is the great and merciful design of the gospel to… Read More

“The poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel” (Isaiah 29:19) It is Christ alone that is the Christian’s rejoicing. Paul speaks of it thus: “We are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and refoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” This is the way God circumcises the hearts of his people with the circumcision of Christ, made without hands, which cuts them… Read More

“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock.” (Song of Solomon 2:14) Jesus is the hiding-place, the only hiding-place from sin and self. “You are my hiding-place,” said David of old. This was shown to Moses, in figure, when the Lord put him into the cleft of a rock, which Toplady has so beautifully versified, to paint the longing desires of his soul – “Rock of Ages, cleft for me, Let… Read More

Waldenses Confession of 1544 1. We believe that there is but one God, who is a Spirit – the Creator of all things – the Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all; who is to be worshipped in spirit and in truth – upon whom we are continually dependent, and to whom we ascribe praise for our life, food, raiment, health, sickness, prosperity, and adversity….

“Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, but Christ is all and in all.” (Colossians 3:11) _______________________________ It is to be much observed that in a chapter of exhortation this great and all-comprehensive statement of doctrine should be made. It is to be observed that the Holy Ghost is here teaching a mystery, a mercy, an all-centring truth, a truth which as made known… Read More

Waldenses Confession of 1120 1. We believe and firmly maintain all that is contained in the twelve articles of the symbol, commonly called the apostles’ creed, and we regard as heretical whatever is inconsistent with the said twelve articles. 2. We believe that there is one God – the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 3. We acknowledge for sacred canonical scriptures the books of the Holy Bible. (Here follows the title of… Read More

Where is your citizenship? No, I am not asking if you are a naturalized citizen of this country. I am not asking if you are African, French, German. According to the Bible, there are only two citizenships: that of the world, and that of heaven; the kingdom of darkness, and the kingdom of light. In which of these do you hold citizenship? To which one of these do you belong? If you… Read More

“For in the time of trouble He will hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle will He hide me; He will set me up upon a rock.” (Psalm 27:5) We have no refuge but Jesus where we can hide our guilty heads. Where else can I hide? In the law? That curses. In self? That is treacherous. In the world? That is under the curse of God. In… Read More
