The Parables of Jesus: Building on Rock and Sand (Part 1)

17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 And they that were vexedContinue reading “The Parables of Jesus: Building on Rock and Sand (Part 1)”

The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged

How long has it been since our Lord, Jesus, ascended into heaven? How many men since that time have made judgements concerning the teachings of Jesus and the way a Christian aught to live out their faith? Many men—in Christ there is no male or female, so for simplicity’s sake, I say men—have made judgements.Continue reading “The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged”

Delivered to Satan

You might be familiar with the time Paul the apostle wrote about delivering someone to Satan. If not, you can look it up.

Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)

Faith is fundamental for any Christian. Our salvation hinges on faith, and yet I wonder how much we truly understand what a “faith-based” life really means. What change might we experience if we really took hold of our faith? I want to spend some time considering faith. Jesus tells us that even faith as aContinue reading “Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)”

Sheep and Goats

Jesus said that He would one day divide the just from the unjust, and part of that dividing has to do with our response to those in need. Jesus said, “insomuch as you did it not unto one of the least of these my brethren, you did it not unto me.” When we shut compassionContinue reading “Sheep and Goats”

A Simple Rebuttal of the Rapture in Favor of the Resurrection

We each have our own God-given gifts for the edification of the church, and we need each other. This is written with love to you, and I ask that you please take theContinue reading “A Simple Rebuttal of the Rapture in Favor of the Resurrection”

Rapture…or Resurrection?

The Rapture? … Or the Resurrection (and transfiguration)? 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleepContinue reading “Rapture…or Resurrection?”
