“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21) Our only hope of salvation is the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is in Christ alone, in Christ completely, and in Christ only. In fact, He is God’s salvation (Luke 2:30). You cannot be saved without Him; and you cannot be saved if you try to mix your… Read More

We rejoice in Christ Jesus and His accomplished work of redemption. By His substitutionary death, He finished the work the Father gave Him: secured the forgiveness of His people, made an end of our sins, made reconciliation for our iniquities and brought in everlasting righteousness (Daniel 9:24). Christ did not try to save sinners by His death; He did not die with the hope that somebody might add their faith to His… Read More

If God treated you the same as you treat others, what would your condition be? If God forgave you in the same measure of your forgiveness of others, would all your sins be gone? If God accepted you the same as you accept others, would you be accepted before His throne? If God judged you by the same standard as you judge others, would you be justified? By Donald Bell

There is no doubt in my mind that the majority of you when first seeing this question, immediately answered yes. Here is another question; “what does a Christian believe”? They all believe the same fundamental truths don’t they, “They shall all be taught of God” (John 6:44-45)? There is one book (the Bible), One God, One Saviour, One Way, One Faith, so Christians agree on ALL these blessed truths. The Scriptures are… Read More

Did the Israelites feed on the sacrifice when it was slain? So do we, spiritually, on Christ. Believers are united to Him in one Spirit, and partake of the benefits of His death, through which they live a spiritual life of grace on earth, and shall live a life of glory in heaven. This subject plainly points out the great end which our Lord had in view, in suffering and dying for… Read More

If there is one great battering ram to pride it is this, who makes you to differ from another? Is there anything that you have that you did not receive? Do you have faith? Have you a new heart, a new nature? Do you have a heart that loves God, that bows and submits to and feels its need of Christ? A heart that loves the brethren? If you received these graces,… Read More

“He who… preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached” (2 Corinthians 11:4) The Jesus of Free-Willism, unlike the Jesus of gospel preachers, does not possess the love of God. Preachers of Free-Willism assert God loves everyone in exactly the same way. They therefore indiscriminately tell their hearers what no gospel preacher in Scriptures ever said: “Smile, God loves you.” And they preach what no gospel preacher in Scriptures every preached: “God… Read More

“Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you — unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried,… Read More

Here is a word from God that should brighten the day for you – “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree.” (Galatians 3:13). When the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, hung upon the cross, he was made to be a curse, an object of Divine wrath and Judgment, so… Read More

“Put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 13:14) What does it mean to put on the Lord Jesus? It doesn’t mean that we can put Him on, and take him off as putting on and taking off clothes. It means that we are to arm ourselves, arm our minds with Christ. We are to arm our minds with the whole person of Christ, as God and sinless humanity. Arm our minds… Read More

Fathers, see that you pay more attention to the souls of your children than to their bodies. We do not mean that the body is to be neglected; but the soul must be considered as the superior part, and the body merely as its servant. Many fathers are extremely attentive to the bodies of their children, their health, their beauty, etc. but seem entirely to forget that they have a soul. If… Read More

The Wise Man (Ecclesiastes 8:1-7, Romans 9:16, Jeremiah 6:14, Jeremiah 8:11, Genesis 22:17-18) strong>”Be not hasty to go out of his sight: stand not in an evil thing; for he doeth whatsoever pleaseth him.” (Ecclesiastes 8:3) If we have to discuss the negative side of “not standing in the evil thing”, then it stands to reason that we must also discuss the positive side “The good thing in which we have to… Read More

Hezekiah removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for in those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it. he called it, “A PIECE OF BRASS”. (2 Kings 18:4) I am confident that the religious, superstitious Israelites were horrified when King Hezekiah destroyed their sacred symbol (which they worshipped – the serpent of… Read More

There are two vital things the Holy Spirit reveals to all whom He brings to faith in Christ Jesus. 1. He will reveal our NEED OF CHRIST! “I need Thee, precious Jesus, for I am full of sin, My soul is dark and gloomy, My heart is dead within; I need the cleansing fountain, where I can always flee, The blood of Christ most precious, The Sinner’s perfect plea.” 2. He will… Read More

Here is the testimony of an elderly believer, whose age had begun to take its toll on her memory. She had once known much of the Bible by heart. Eventually, only one precious bit stayed with her, “I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.” By and by part of that slipped its hold, and… Read More

Many years ago a young man delivered a sermon in a Welsh chapel. After he finished the sermon, he remarked to an old gentlemen, “What did you think of my sermon? My friend, it took me a long time to prepare it.” “I’m sure that it did,” said the old man, “but it was still a poor sermon.” “Was my delivery poor, or were my illustrations poorly applied?” “Oh no,” said the… Read More

“But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.” (I Corinthians 1:30) According to the Scriptures, those who are in Christ Jesus our Lord by divine election, certainly have no reason to boast nor to brag. It is not because of any merit or righteousness found in them, but simply by His sovereign choice, “but of Him are ye… Read More

“He who… preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached” (2 Corinthians 11:4) The Jesus of Free-Willism, unlike the Jesus of gospel preachers, does not possess the love of God.

Does your preacher often address men and women with this statement: “won’t you let God do this or that?” It doesn’t sound very God-like does it? There is a tract I have seen called “God’s Simple Plan of Salvation.” On the backside of that little tract were the words, “Please! Let God save you this very moment!” I cannot understand how anyone who has given any serious time and attention to the… Read More

God, in Christ, chose a great host of Adam’s race to salvation before the foundation of the world. He did this according to the good pleasure of His own will and for His own glory (Ephesians 1:4-6). Those whom God before had chosen had no merit – nothing to commend themselves to God, but were dead in trespasses and sins (II Timothy 2:9, Ephesians 2:1). Jesus Christ came in the flesh; joined… Read More

Here are some terms I constantly use in preaching the gospel. They are terms by which the works of God’s grace are presented to us in Holy Scripture, either verbally or by unmistakable examples or illustrations. They are Bible words, words that every confessing believer ought to know. Did you know they were in the Bible? Election – Predestination – Redemption – Regeneration – Providence Election Election is God’s sovereign, eternal choice… Read More

Modern day religion makes the eternal God a pathetic failure! Preachers everywhere tell us that God is trying to save multitudes who are not saved. They tell us that God wants to do many things for us and with us that we will not let Him do. We are told that Christ died for all the people of the world in an attempt to redeem and save all men; but that all… Read More

I’m truly sorry for people who are being lied to by preachers who compromise the truth of God, speak smooth things, brag on the flesh, make God a doddering old grandfather and the Lord Jesus Christ a failing, fumbling, faltering pretender who sure does wish that everybody liked Him. Here is where we are today. A true preacher can tell the people who God is, and that the Lord Jesus Christ is… Read More

“For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” (Luke 14:11) This is a mystery that natural men do not understand, only those who have been touched first in regeneration by God (1 Corinthians 2:7-14). In the natural world the way up is up, but in the spiritual world the way up is down. “He that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” (Luke 14:11) In the natural… Read More
