The New Birth from Genesis

Genesis 1:1-5  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.  [2]  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  [3]  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.  [4]  And God saw the light, that it […]

A Question of Suicide

Since a person committing suicide can’t repent after the fact, can they end their life and still be saved? I am not insensitive to the fact that this question could be hurtful to those who lost someone to suicide. I also realize that the survivors of those who have taken their own life often have […]

Saved from East to West

Psalms 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. This ‘east to west’ reference is more than a map coordinate, for within this statement is a glorious promise that Jesus was to fulfill for you and for me. Why “east to west”? To guard against […]

Matthew 18:21-22 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

Abraham: A Father Of Many Nations

And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. (Genesis 17:3-4) God promised Abraham that he would be the father of “many nations.” “Nations” is the Hebrew word “Goy.” Strong’s Concordance defines “Goy” as a “foreign […]

A Thousand Years As One Day

The Bible does not say Peter’s “thousand years” statement is about a timetable foretelling the years found in a dispensation of time. In context his statement is clearly speaking of the limited time span of a man’s life, and reminding them that though they may think they have an eternity, because they are finite, they […]

Blasphemy of the Holy Ghost

The devil is a liar. When he speaks, he speaks lies. His words are not without reason for each is tailor-made to destroy the soul of a man or woman. One of his favored deceptions is to take God’s Word and twist it to his own benefit. One way the devil does this is making […]

What happened to Elijah?

Question: What happened to Elijah when the fiery chariot took him away?   Answer: I believe the Bible always provides its own answers. What it says is always right; and what it says is always enough. Alexander Campbell made famous this nineteenth-century expression: “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent.” This hermeneutic […]
