How tragic that we in this dark day have had our seeking done for us by our teachers. Everything is made to center upon the initial act of “accepting” Christ (a term, incidentally, which is not found in the Bible) and we are not expected thereafter to crave any further revelation of God to our […]
Will we let them sit at ease in Zion while certain judgment is visible from the watchtower? Should we not cry out to them: Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light. (Eph. 5:14) Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. (2 Cor. 13:5) […]
The longer I live the more I am convinced that the world needs no new Gospel, as some profess to think. I am thoroughly persuaded that the world needs nothing but a bold, full, unflinching teaching of the “old paths”. The heart of man is the same in every age. The spiritual medicine which it […]
When Jesus appeared to Israel, He did not plead with them to open their hearts and ask Him in, nor did He direct them to repeat a certain prayer. Instead, He commanded them to turn from their sin and believe the gospel. Washer, Paul. The Gospel Call and True Conversion (Recovering the Gospel Book 2) […]

Romans 1-8 MacArthur New Testament Commentary (MacArthur New Testament Commentary Series) (Kindle Locations 363-365). Moody Publishers. Kindle Edition.
We must have a reformation within the Church. To beg for a flood of blessing to come upon a backslidden and disobedient Church is to waste time and effort. A new wave of religious interest will do no more than add numbers to churches that have no intention to own the Lordship of Jesus and […]
To look at the state of America today is to despair if you put your trust in man. The unrelenting assault on righteous foundations is breathtaking in its zeal. The blatant disregard for the law is matched by the malevolent use of the law to destroy those who disagree with the political-media elites. Goodness is […]
When the barriers to evil are brought down, it flourishes; and never again will I be tempted to believe in the fundamental goodness of man, or that evil is something exceptional or alien to human nature. Dalrymple, Theodore. Our Culture, What’s Left Of It (Kindle Locations 218-219). Monday Books. Kindle Edition.
God is always speaking. How often are we listening?
