  • [PART TWELVE] FINAL WORDS: Christ's Farewell To Those He Loved

    The Moody Church ^ | Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer
    This little jingle is still true: Convince a man against his will, He’ll be of the same opinion stiff. Have you ever tried to change someone’s opinion about religion? You’ll soon find that prejudice, narrow mindedness, and sheer stubbornness will surface. And it doesn’t matter whether you are Catholic, Protestant, or Jewish! Consider a young eighteen-year-old boy who accepted Christ as his Saviour. All of his guilt is gone; peace comes to his heart. He can hardly wait to share the Good News. When he arrives home, he tells his parents that they also can become Christians by repenting of...

    The Moody Church ^ | Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer
    It’s frightening to walk alone into unprotected darkness. How much better to be with someone who has the ability to defend you from the hazards of the unknown path; somebody who promises he will be with you no matter what. For three years, the disciples could depend on Jesus for everything. He would still the storm on Galilee, multiply food, and answer His critics with logic and wit. It was easy to be Christ’s disciples standing next to Him; they could weather many blows with the strong Son of God at their side. But now they would be alone. Jesus...
  • Pray For Unction (Reformed/Evangelical Caucus)

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | Tullian Tchividjian
    I’m a die-hard believer in unction. Unction is an old fashioned word which describes an effusion of power from the Holy Spirit as one preaches. It is the one thing preachers need above everything else. It is the accompanying power of the Spirit. This is what Charles Spurgeon dubbed “the sacred annointing.” It is power from on high. In his book on the preaching of Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Sacred Annointing, Tony Sargent describes unction well. He writes: [Unction] is the afflatus of the Spirit resting on the speaker. It is the preacher gliding on eagles’ wings, soaring high, swooping...

    Sins Against the Holy Spirit to Come Holy GhostThe following words of Our Lord show how grievous are sins against the Holy Ghost: "Every sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy of the Spirit shall not be forgiven."The sins against the Holy Ghost are commonly said to be six in number: despair, presumption, impenitence, obstinacy, resisting truth, and envy of another's spiritual welfare.Some of these are less difficult of pardon than others. Final impenitence is absolutely unpardonable. Those, too, who from deliberate malice refuse to recognize the work of God, as the Pharisees did when they saw...

    Pentecost marks a time when Mary's presence is of singular importance, says a specialist in Marian studies.  In this interview with ZENIT, Discalced Carmelite Father Jesús Castellano Cervera, who is also a consultor for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, elaborated on the Blessed Virgin's presence at the arrival of the Holy Spirit. Q: The time we are now living is the conclusion of Eastertide and of the month of May. Is it of special Marian relevance? Father Castellano Cervera: I think the time extending from the Ascension to Pentecost is a particularly Marian time.  The fact emphasized...

    Many people openly profess that they do not believe in God. Many profess this disbelief because their way of living is in direct parallel of the opposite of what God approves of, and as such, they actively seek to build a case to justify their non-belief. After all, the habits of said people drive them to seek information that goes against God as opposed to wanting to seek information that either supports God, or in a fair and balanced approach, compares and contrasts (weighs in fairness) both arguments. Other people have genuine concerns that to them legitimizes their not believing...

    The scenes are familiar. A young man approaches the pulpit and breaks down while recounting how he was saved from disaster by a prompting. He can't make it to "Amen" before grabbing a tissue. A woman shares an experience in Sunday School about a relative who was given a blessing and healed from serious illness in the blink of an eye. A friend retells a dream that revealed which academic major, career and spouse he should choose. All know they felt the Spirit -- "without a shadow of a doubt." But less noticed is the girl in the back of...

    “I place these five grand marks of the Spirit’s presence before my readers, and confidently claim attention to them. I believe they will bear inspection. I am not afraid of their being searched, criticized, and cross-examined. 1) Repentance toward God. 2) Faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. 3) Holiness of heart and life. 4) Habits of real private prayer. 5) Love and reverence toward God’s Word. “These are the real proofs of the indwelling of the Holy Ghost in a man’s soul. Where He is, these marks will be seen. Where He is not, these marks will be lacking.”

    Featured Term (selected at random):GIFT OF KNOWLEDGE One of the seven infused gifts. By the illuminating action of the Holy Spirit it perfects the virtue of faith.

    Featured Term (selected at random): PARACLETE A title of the Holy Spirit. Christ was and remains the first advocate. When he was to leave earth in visible form, he promised "another Paraclete" so that his followers would not be orphans. That Paraclete came on Pentecost. He is the advocate of the Mystical Body, pleading God's cause for the human family, keeping the Church from error, sanctifying souls through the preaching of God's word and through the sacraments. The Holy Spirit, whose function is to teach, bear witness, and "to convince the world of sin," is the love of God...
