We know the natural man “receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them”. (1 Corinthians 2:14) In 1 Peter 1:23 it says there are two seeds, a birth and flesh. One seed is “corruptible”, the other is “incorruptible”. What happens to the soul that is born again by the incorruptible seed of God? Does he have a new nature? Has… Read More

While visiting somewhere recently a lady from our congregation said the preacher announced his subject, it was; “God needs your help”. She told her husband, “no God doesn’t need our help, we need His”. Naturally they left. Who is in need, God or us? Who needs help, God or us? Who is helpless, God or us? You and I are tossed about by many things and are often moved by situations, and… Read More

As we have opportunity to preach or to witness to someone, it is not God honouring to tell them that God loves them and Christ died for them. The word of God and our Lord Jesus Christ gives us what we are to say, “except ye believe I Am He ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24). “He that believeth on the Son of God hath life; he that believeth not… Read More

“And be found In Him…” (Philippians 3:9) When the Apostle talked about being found in Christ he described himself as at one time being without Christ. How did he know what it was to not be found in Christ? He at one time was looking to his own righteousness, trusting in the deeds of his flesh. After being smitten down on the Damascus road, after having seen the Glory of Christ, after… Read More

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) Everything about our Lord Jesus is wonderful. Here the prophet says; “His name shall be called wonderful”. We sing that chorus; “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, there is just something about that name”…. Read More

“That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing.” (Colossians 1:10) The first thoughts most of us have when we read, “walk worthy,” or “pleasing the Lord” is I must start living better, or I can’t possibly walk in such a way as will please the Lord. Both are wrong thoughts, they both are based upon works, and a false humility. So preacher how then can I walk in such… Read More

“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (I Corinthians 6:20) How deep, how dreadful, of what awful magnitude, of how black a dye, of how ingrained a stamp must sin be, to need such an atonement – no less than the blood of Him who was the Son of God – to put it away. What a slave to… Read More

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous, therefore, and repent;” (Revelation 3:19) ———————— The persons, the objects of Christ’s love here intended are not angels, but the sons of men; and these not all of them, yet many of them, even all who are His own by His Father’s gift and His own purchase; and who are called His church, and sometimes represented as such who love Him… Read More

“I will feed my flock.” (Ezekiel 34:15) The only real food of the soul must be of God’s own appointing, preparing, and communicating. You can never deceive a hungry child. You may give it a plaything but still it cries. It may serve for a few minutes; but the pains of hunger are not to be removed by a doll. A toy horse will not allay the cravings after the mother’s breast…. Read More

“And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord,” (Acts 9:1) manifested his unregenerate heart and hatred toward God. His relentless persecution of Christ’s disciples revealed his disbelief and rejection of Christ as that Messiah foretold in Holy Scripture. Saul, just as all sinners, desperately needed the One who commanded the Light to shine out of darkness, to shine in his heart and give “the Light of… Read More

The carnally-minded are quick to speak of temporal (thus, fleeting) things as “blessings,” but the true believer knows that “every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights” (James 1:17). Those things that men perceive as blessings are unimportant; read (and hear, by the grace of God) of a man who is truly blessed: “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin… Read More

1 Kings 3:5 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee. 1 Kings 3:6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given… Read More

“Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.” (John 4:34) The meat of Christ, or the food which satisfied His Spirit, was to do the will of His Father who had sent Him. It was God’s will that of all those chosen before the foundation of the world unto salvation Christ should lose nothing, but should raise it up… Read More

Nothing soothes the regenerated heart of a believer more than considering the mercy of God. Try to contemplate the depth of His mercy and I am lost in my inadequacies. How merciful has God been to me? The very word “mercy” has a sound of hope. It means to have compassion, sympathy, tenderness, clemency, leniency, charity, to yearn over, to pity, to melt the heart. O, the wonder of desiring that God… Read More

For thousands of years, whether in types, pictures or the fullness of Christ’s incarnation, the gospel has been proclaimed in the same manner. This proclamation sets forth the constancy and stability of Him in whom we rest. Because there is an unwavering consistency in the preaching of Christ, men have no grounds for argument or room for debate when it comes down to that which will be the standard for glorification or… Read More

The message of the Gospel is a very narrow message that encompasses the breadth or the span of God himself. It is narrow in the sense that Christ is its only object. There is nothing that I can preach from the Scriptures that will not find its beginning and end all redounding to the glory and honour of Christ. Any message that focuses on anything but Him misses the Gospel. By Marvin… Read More

“Thy People Shall Be Willing.” (Psalm 110:3) ——————– God’s elect worship and serve Him with willing hearts. We willingly believe, willingly worship, willingly give, and willingly do what we can for the glory of God. It is God Who, by effectual grace, makes us willing; but we are willing servants of the Most High God! Any worship, service, or gifts offered to God that is not done with a willing heart is… Read More

The Scriptures distinctly teaches us that we are not justified by the law nor is the law a rule of life. That which can only curse can never justify and that which can only kill can never be a rule of life (Romans 3.20). Both the Jews who had received the law and the Gentiles who had never had the law were now to be saved through grace (Acts 15:11). Not only… Read More

“Look every man on the things of others.” (Philippians 2:4) ——————– The failure of most preachers is traced not to the fact that they do not have a pastor’s head, voice, and energy, but they do not have a pastor’s heart! The failure of most church members and professing christians to be a blessing to family, friends, and outsiders is not that you do not have the proper doctrine, the proper moral… Read More

“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?” (Psalm 85:6) When the religious world talks about revival they mean an emotional series of meetings that will win souls and get backslidden church members to rededicate their lives to an impotent Jesus. But the psalmist prays and asks the Lord; “Wilt thou not revive us again?” I believe we desperately need for God to revive us…to stir up… Read More

“Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.” (Psalm 46:10) The God of the bible is out of fashion in His own world. He is ridiculed, jokes are popular about him and His Son. He has been reduced to slogans and billboards and bumper stickers. His name has become a good luck charm, an insurance policy and whatever… Read More
