But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

“Daddy, I don’t want to die!”

Written by

The existence of hell is a legitimate reason to come to the Savior, and it is perhaps why so many profess faith in Christ. Though there are undoubtedly some who, in the name of Christianity, have hung its threat over the masses to keep them and their children in line, the biblical threat of hell is...

Plowing, reaping, sowing.

Written by

This is a summation of the Christian message to the world. Those who understand the righteousness of God will see their need for His mercy, which is found only in Jesus Christ. However, there can be no mercy until the hard soil of the heart has been broken up by the plow of the Law (see Rom....

Ezekiel and the glory of God.

Written by

“After Ezekiel had surveyed the temple of God, he had a vision of the glory of God. When Christ crucified, and the things freely given to us of God, through Him, are shown to us by the Holy Ghost, they make us ashamed for our sins. This frame of mind prepares us for fuller discoveries of the...

Convert Christians to Christianity.

Written by

The world often complains about the hypocrites they think are “in the Church.” Yet hypocrites (pretenders) are not part of the Church, which is made up of true believers. Hypocrites merely dwell as goats among the Lord’s sheep, bad fish among the good, tares among wheat until the...

Weekly PIE night.

Written by

It’s easy to find excuses not to witness by yourself, so find a partner or two and encourage one another in your evangelistic endeavors. Form ties with godly men and women who are liked-minded about the necessity to reach the lost and make plans to go out “fishing” on a regular...

Taking up the cross.

Written by

When God draws a sinner to Himself and saves him, he becomes part of the virgin Bride of Christ. The believer who has seen the love of God in Christ will take up his cross and follow Him.

Yom Kippur.

Written by

Modern Jews have abandoned blood sacrifice, and instead observe one day each year of self-examination and affliction of the soul, to atone for the sins of the past year: “Yom Kippur atones only for sins between man and G-d, not for sins against another person. To atone for sins against...

Traditions vs. the Word

Written by

It is no wonder that modern-day Jews gravitate toward their own traditions rather than to the Word of God. Because of sin, the demands of the Law meant a continual need for a bloody sacrifice.

Leviticus 1:1 Now the Lord called to Moses, and spoke to him from the tabernacle of meeting, saying,2&n...

Some also misapply Gen. 2:17 to Adam, saying that he died “the day” he sinned because he lived less than a thousand years (see 5:5). But even if Adam had lived to 1,001 years, Gen. 2:17 would still be true: Adam did die the very day he chose to disobey God—he died spiritually that...

An example of human stupidity.

Written by

Some skeptics point to this verse, where Lot offered two of his daughters to a pack of homosexuals who were at his door, threatening to rape Lot’s two male visitors. Of course, the homosexuals did not take him up on his offer, and the visitors (angels) were very capable of protecting...

What God will do…

“What God in His sovereignty may yet do on a worldscale I do not claim to know. But what He will do for the plain man or woman who seeks His face I believe I do know and can tell others. Let any man turn to God in earnest, let him begin to exercise himself unto godliness, let him seek to...

God’s Law prepares the heart of the sinner for the good news of the gospel. Without this preparatory work, his heart is hardened and he therefore becomes a candidate for a false conversion. Now and then we can catch a glimpse of the difference between the true and false converts. Here we read...

Hypocrites may show up at a church building every Sunday, but there are no hypocrites in the Church (Christ’s body). Hypocrite comes from the Greek word for “actor,” or pretender. Hypocrisy is “the practice of professing beliefs, feelings, or virtues that one does not...

God is “unfair.”

Written by

The average person is guilty of committing tens of thousands of crimes against God in his lifetime. He has no justification. With the voice of his conscience, he knows it is wrong to lie, steal, commit adultery in his heart, etc. He knows intuitively that God gave him life (see Rom. 1:18–20),...

The distance between east and west.

Written by

Often the godly remind the Lord of His promises, as an act of faith on their part rather than forgetfulness by God. The only thing He truly forgets is the sins that are covered by the blood of Christ. According to Scripture, He has cast them as far as the east is from the west (see Psa. 103:12).We...

Repentance toward God.

Written by

Esther had the ten sons of Haman hanged. This is a picture of “repentance toward God,” when we rid ourselves of the enemy by putting to death the works of the flesh—the nature received from our father, the devil (see John 8:44; Eph. 2:2).

The works of the flesh are traced to...

When God doesn’t hear.

Written by

Many of the ungodly are disillusioned when God doesn’t answer their prayers. They need to know that He often doesn’t hear them because of their proud and sinful hearts. The psalmist warns that if we regard iniquity in our heart, the Lord will not hear (see Psa. 66:18). We must...

The Christian message to this world…

The Christian message to this world is that all its pleasures are but for a season. This life is a vapor; it is vanity. There is only One who is eternal, the Word of God, and He will grant eternal life to all who trust in Him.

Could have been different.

How different things would have been if God’s people had been faithful to Him. He set before them the way of life and the way of death (21:8; Deut. 30:15,19). He told them to choose which they would have. He spoke to them of incredible blessings if they would obey His voice, and warned them...

“In one-on-one witnessing encounters, a common question asked is, ‘Why is there pain and suffering?’ If you have your Bible with you at the time, open to Isaiah 24:5-6, and have the person you’re talking with read it aloud. When he finishes reading, explain that...
