    EVENING APRIL29 That blessed hope,...the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil: whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus. Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things. When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe. The whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, ... groan within...

    "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me" (Matt. 5:10-11). The persecution you receive for proclaiming Christ is really aimed at Christ Himself. Savonarola has been called the Burning Beacon of the Reformation. His sermons denouncing the sin and corruption of the Roman Catholic Church of his day helped pave the way for the Protestant Reformation. Many who heard his powerful sermons went away...

    “Just as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly” (1 Corinthians 15:49). All believers can look forward to one day receiving new bodies and new images. Jesus’ post-resurrection appearances present a glimpse of the greatness, power, and wonder that our own resurrection bodies will have. Our Lord appeared and disappeared at will and always reappeared in other places. He was able to go through walls and doors, but He could also eat, drink, sit, talk, and be seen by others. Jesus was remarkably the same as before His death, yet...
  • The Significance of Erdogan...Turkey pt 7

    Ever since 1918, at the end of the First World War, the Western world has been in a period of respite, whether we recognize it or not, from the predations of a ravenous Empire which menaced the West for 400 years. We who have been born and raised in this post Ottoman period for the most part don’t even know that a little more than a hundred years ago, all of the West had to deal with a powerful and avaricious Sunni menace, which altered world trade routes, controlled the entire Middle East including the Holy Land, and encroached deep...

    MORNING APRIL 29 Consider how great things He hath done for you. Thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep His commandments, or no. Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chastens his son, so the Lord thy God chastens thee. I know, O Lord, that Thy judgments are right, and that Thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me. It is good for me that I have been...

    APRIL 28 EVENINGI will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect. Leaving the principles of the doctrine of Jesus, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God. The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him...
  • What Is Repentance?

    Unsealed World News ^ | 9/12/16 | Gary
    What is repentance?  Is it turning from sin?  Is it not sinning?   Is it reforming one's life?  Is it getting cleaned up first, before coming to Christ? No word causes greater trepidation and uncertainty among those considering a decision of faith and no word causes greater fear and confusion among those already in the Church. This word has caused me some of the greatest angst in my life, largely because of how I've understood it: turning from sin, reforming my ways, being perfect.  Yet I continue to fail.  Daily.  This incredible dichotomy exists in my mind between the biblical...

    From the years 1299AD to 1922 AD,the Holy Land of the Bible, Egypt, Libya,Tunisia, the entire Arab world, and the former Christian Middle East was ruled alternately by the Mameluke dynasty of Egypt, end eventually came under the rule of the Turkish Pashas of the Ottoman Empire.By the late 15th century the remains of the once Christian Byzantine Empire also fell into the hands of the Ottoman empire. Constantinople became Istanbul, and the renown Hagia Sophia Church became the great Mosque and the city of Constantine and the Christian emperors of Byzantium became the seat of the Caliphate.

    Grace to You.org ^ | 1993 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me" (Matt. 5:10-11). When you speak out for Christ, you can expect harassment, insults, and slander. Jesus mentioned three broad categories of suffering that Christians will experience. The first is persecution. "Persecuted" (Matt. 5:10) and "persecute" (v. 11) both come from the same Greek root meaning "to pursue" or "chase away." Over time it came to mean...

    “Do not be deceived: ‘Bad company corrupts good morals.’ Become sober-minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame” (1 Corinthians 15:33-34). Trusting in the fact of Christ’s resurrection and looking forward to our own rising from the dead ought to stimulate us toward sanctification. Like any essential teaching of Scripture, the doctrine of the Resurrection can be studied and discussed from an academic standpoint only. When that happens, we usually acquire a factual understanding of the topic and perhaps some appreciation of how the doctrine supports our faith—but...

    APRIL 28 MORNING Behold the Lamb of God. It is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when He cometh into the world, He saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: in burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do thy will, O God. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He is brought as a lamb...

    EVENING APRIL 27 A new name. The disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. They that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new...

Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.(Revelation...

    FULL TITLE: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church': Mother says she was told to leave a CHURCH for breastfeeding A breastfeeding mother claims she was escorted out of a church service in Virginia and was told: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church.' Annie Peguero has posted a video on Facebook about her treatment on Sunday at the Summit Church in Springfield and said she would never go back there. Peguero, a personal trainer and military wife, said a church official told her: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church,...

    "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness" (Matt. 5:10). If you don’t experience persecution, people probably don’t know you’re a Christian. I heard of a man who was fearful because he was starting a new job with a group of unbelievers whom he thought might give him a bad time if they found out he was a Christian. After his first day at work his wife asked him how he got along with them. "We got along just fine," he said. "They never found out I'm a Christian." Silence is one way to avoid persecution....

    “If from human motives I fought with wild beasts at Ephesus, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die” (1 Corinthians 15:32). The truth of the Resurrection is an incentive for believers to persevere in service for Jesus Christ. Certainly Paul’s statement in today’s verse is an extraordinary one, but it reiterates that the truth of Christ’s resurrection and the hope of believers’ resurrection are definite incentives for Christian service. It allows us to look more closely at what motivated Christians like Paul, and how we also should...

    MORNING APRIL 27 Brethren, the time is short. Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. The world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. Death is swallowed up in victory. Whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we...

    APRIL 26 EVENING Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners? The Church of God, which He hath purchased with His own Blood. Christ loved the Church, and gave Himself for it; that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. There appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman...

    A group of pro-life Christians gathered outside a Planned Parenthood facility in Arizona recently only to be met by a cowbell wielding Planned Parenthood ‘escort’ in what can only be described as a truly bizarre scene. The man in the video is Jeff Durbin, who the NY Post recently smeared as an ‘extremist’ hipster pastor, and he regularly stands in front of Planned Parenthood facilities in hopes of convincing women not to go through with potential abortions. While he attempts to have rational conversations, he’s often met with uncontrollable rage, as was the case in this particular video. He pleads...
