    IFB ^ | 1/12/19
    My salvation is fully accomplished (John 19:30). I have eternal life as a present possession (John 5:24; 6:47; 1 John 5:11-13). I have Jesus Christ as my present possession (1 John 5:12). I know the one, true God (John 17:3; 1 John 2:3; 5:20). I have been saved by His grace (Eph. 2:1-10). I have been justified by His grace (Tit. 3:7). I have passed from death unto life (John 5:24; 1 John 3:14). I have been quickened (made alive) by God (Eph. 2:1,5; Col. 2:13). I have been made fit for heaven (Col. 1:12). I have the forgiveness of...

    IFB ^ | 1/12/19
    I was on the broad way (road) leading to destruction (Matthew 7:13). I was lost (Luke 19:10; 2 Corinthians 4:3). I was condemned already because of my unbelief (John 3:18; compare 1 Corinthians 11:32). I was a lover of darkness (John 3:19). I was under God's abiding wrath (John 3:36) awaiting God's coming wrath (Luke 3:7; Ephesians 5:6; Colossians 3:6). I was an ignorant worshipper (John 4:22). I was an evildoer deserving judgment (John 5:29; compare 3 John 11). I was of the world and from below or beneath (John 8:23). I was yet in my sins (John 8:21,24; compare...

    Faith and works.  Law and grace.  This is the age-old battle between God and man-made religion that started not when Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, but long, long before—in the Garden of Eden, in the beginning, in fact.  This is a mega-post (so grab some coffee!), but please stick through to the end, because there is a blessing herein that the receptive heart will receive.  And please share with anyone you know, religious or otherwise, who is far from God. Was there law in Eden?  No, there was grace,...

    O little lamb.  I know the journey has been long and the road hard for you.  I know the perplexity of life and the thunderous waves of competing voices make it so difficult to hear the only Voice that matters.  But do not fear, little one.  Do not fear. Sometimes you thought you were holding on by a mere thread, with just the tip of a finger above water.  You could barely utter a prayer, nay even a word.  All you could offer was the wordless, inner groaning of faith.  And in moments of weakness you thought He might...

    Greetings, To the churches of God that are in the United States, Israel, the severed province of Judea and Samaria, and the uttermost parts of the earth; to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. For the commandments, 'You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,' and any other commandment, are summed...
  • The Messiah Enters Into History...Luke's Nativity pt 3

    And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while...
  • The first Glimmer of Light...Luke's nativity pt 1

    This is a rerun from 2015, I hope you enjoy… There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of...
  • Do You Want to Have a Good Christmas? Then Listen to this Advent Message: “You Need a Savior!"

    Do You Want to Have a Good Christmas? Then Listen Carefully to this Advent Message: “You Need a Savior!” Msgr. Charles Pope • December 5, 2018 • One of the goals of Advent (in many ways a penitential season) is to meditate on our need for a savior. In daily Mass and in the Liturgy of the Hours, we read lengthy passages from Isaiah and the other prophets, who speak boldly and bluntly about the people’s sin. Some of the passages are even a bit humorous. Here are a few: Hear, O heavens! Listen, O earth! For the LORD...

    “Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself? Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God: Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying. Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto...
  • Substitution - My Utmost for His Highest

    10/29/2018 1:27:27 PM PDT · by RevelationDavid · 1 replies
    A wonderful and deep Truth, worth of genuine reflection. Substitution He has made Him to be sin for us,…that we might be made the righteousness of God.… 2 CORINTHIANS 5:.21 The modern view of the death of Jesus is that He died for our sins out of sympathy. The New Testament view is that He bore our sin not by sympathy, but by identification. He was made to be sin. Our sins are removed because of the death of Jesus, and the explanation of His death is His obedience to His Father, not His sympathy with us. We are acceptable...

    Billy Graham Evangelistic Assoc. ^ | Sep 2016 | Tiffany Jothen
    “I will be so happy if my Lord Jesus Christ accepts me as one of His followers. Is it possible if I was born a Muslim?” That’s a question from a man in the Middle East who reached out to BGEA’s internet evangelism ministry, Search for Jesus, after hearing about Christ through Christian friends. Search for Jesus has over 500 trained volunteers ready to respond to online visitors with the hope of the Gospel. Two of those volunteers, Brian and Kimberly of North Carolina, spent years as missionaries to Muslims in Southeast Asia and now answer emails from Muslims around...
  • The Gospel Upholds God's Law...Romans 1-3 pt 10

    Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.(Romans 3:28-31)The good news of God’s willingness to justify sinners who put all of their faith in Jesus, is not based upon their adherence to the “deeds of the Law”. But this gospel of Jesus, God’s...
  • Nothing To Brag About...romans 1-3 pt 9

    Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.(Romans 3:27-28)Why is it that God requires faith and not works? Why is it that God’s salvation is only accessible to those who believe in His gospel ? Part of the answer to this question is in the quote above. We have seen that man is so bankrupt, he is so estranged from God and corrupted, that there is no way that he can save himself. He...

    Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God . To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.(Romans 3:24-26)God is Holy. That means that He has an infinite aversion to sin, evil, sinners, and all that is false. He utterly hates rebellion, unbelief, immorality, in short, all forms of sin....
  • God Has Set forth...Romans 1-3 pt 7

    Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;(Romans 3:24-25)How can fallen, sinful, rebellious man ever be reconciled to the Infinite, personal and Holy God ? The solution to the problem as described by the apostle Paul cannot possibly come from man himself. All have sinned and are coming short of the glory of God. The gospel is that God himself, has given us a...

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (Romans 3:23-24)The subject of Romans chapter three has been thus far, All. All of us are under a Divine sentence of condemnation, All of us like sheep have gone astray from God. There are no exceptions, not even Israel, All of us have defected from God. Yet to that same ALL, God has provided a gift, even the very Righteousness that He demands of us, in the person of Jesus Christ. The gift is...
