New Year is about Spiritual Rousing

God’s New Year is about spiritual rousing. Leviticus 23:23–25 gives us a picture of New Year, God’s way. The blowing trumpet in ancient Israel marked solemn, joyful, and  urgent occasions. It caused them to be roused. This Scripture concerns the Feast of the Trumpets. It happened in the seventh month in the Jewish worship calendar and […] Continue reading…

Seven Glories of Jesus Christ

Christmas is a time to reflect on the person and divinity of Jesus Christ.  While the world seems to want to push Jesus farther and farther away from Christmas, we, as believers need to, with conviction, share and hold fast to the truth. We need to speak about Jesus with the authority of God’s truth, […] Continue reading…

The Gifts of the Wise Men

When we read Scripture we know very little about the wise men. Every year people send millions of Christmas greetings that show three kings presenting gifts to the child in the manger. We sing “We Three Kings of Orient Are.” But, in fact, we don’t really know if there were three wise men or a […] Continue reading…

Lessons from the Magi

When we read Matthew 2:1–11 we encounter “wise men from the East,” or Magi. These men were probably Persian and they were, like the Levites of Israel, a tribe or group of priests. They were teachers, instructors and highly skilled in philosophy, medicine and natural science. At this time they were good and holy men. […] Continue reading…

Preparing the Way for the Gospel

One of the easiest, and most biblical, ways to show someone their need for Jesus is using God’s Law—the Ten Commandments. The storied preacher Charles H. Spurgeon highlighted this point saying, “They will never accept grace until they tremble before a just and holy God.”[1] Two Scriptures prove the importance of the Law and what […] Continue reading…

The ABC’s of Sharing Your Faith

In yesterday’s message, Gospel Declared, I alluded to the ABC’s of sharing your faith. I’d like to expand a bit on that in this Blog. The first word is available. If we are going to declare the gospel, we have to be available. I know that might seem just so like, Well, of course you […] Continue reading…

Avoid the Slippery Slope

Peter, Paul and John all warn the people in the early church about the slippery slope of false teachers and a false Gospel. Not too many years after Jesus went to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father certain people began distorting His message. The apostles were committed to not letting that […] Continue reading…

Always Be Ready

As Christians we always need to be ready to defend our faith. Why? Because in so many places today we find it under attack and needing defending from all faithful followers of Jesus. English bishop and third son of William Wilberforce, Samuel Wilberforce (1805–1873), once said that lordship of Christ could be defined in four […] Continue reading…

The Very First Thanksgiving

In the fall of 1621, just a few months after the Mayflower left to go back to England, Gov. William Bradford announced a time of Thanksgiving. For three days, the pilgrims rejoiced in the goodness of God. The celebration was a response of these godly people to the truth of the Word of God that […] Continue reading…

Gospel Discovery of Intercessory Prayer

Intercession. It is praying and crying out for the future, heavenly, Kingdom-of-God power, to invade our present, hellish kingdom-of-darkness circumstances today. Andrew Murray wrote, “Christ has opened the school of prayer especially to train intercessors for the great work of bringing down, by their faith and prayer, the blessings of His work and love upon […] Continue reading…
