The Paralysis of the Body of Christ

Then He said to the man, 'Stretch out your hand." And he stretched it out and it was restored, as sound as the other. -Matthew 12:13 Satan hates the Church. The gates of Hades always seek to prevail against the Church, for it lies deep in the heart of God as His primary vessel to... Continue Reading →

The Twofoldness of the Truth

I recently posted a link to a PDF of Robert Govett's pamphlet entitled The Twofoldness of the Truth. If you're willing to read it (it's not very long), please just skip this post and read the original. If you're short on time or you're curious how I'll summarize it, feel free to continue. When it...

The River

There is a river whose streams gladden the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. -Psalms 46:4 There is a river! This verse enlivened me this morning in such a strong way. There is a river! I hope that by the end of this post, many would be helped... Continue Reading →

WWJD

To many, "What would Jesus do?" or "WWJD" has become a sort of moral compass to their lives. When confronted with a difficult situation or even in seeing a homeless man begging for money, Christians desire to to imitate their Lord and how He lived His life on the earth.

The 4 Laws

What role does the Law of the Old Testament play in the lives of Christians? What exactly are we supposed to do after we get saved? Why does it seem that being good is so difficult?

John 19:30 According to the popular view in Christianity, Jesus' work was finished on the cross and now we simply need to believe in Him to get to heaven. If you're a really... Continue Reading →

Prophesying

When most people hear the word "prophecy," they think of foretelling the future and speaking about something before it happens. This was definitely my concept a couple of years ago. While this surely is an aspect of what prophecy is (Ezk. 34:2, 11; Matt. 16:18; Acts 11:27-28), it is not an all-encompassing definition. Consider the... Continue Reading →

Ordinances

For you are a holy people to Jehovah your God; it is you whom Jehovah your God has chosen from among all the peoples which are upon the face of the earth to be a people for His personal treasure. Deuteronomy 7:6 After the fall of man, including eating from the wrong tree, the murder... Continue Reading →
