Our Great Commission

When Jesus Christ gave His Great Commission He was not speaking as some Rabbi or Didaskalos (Master Teacher). Jesus was speaking as the Son of God, the King of all Kings. Of His kingdom there shall be no end (Luke 1:33). God the Son said:

John 3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

Everything belongs to Jesus. All things – whether in Heaven or on earth – are under His direct control. Furthermore, Jesus said… Continue reading

Questions Of Christmas

I thought since we have few who attend our mid-week prayer service that we would go a little deeper tonight than I go on Sunday mornings. Those who take the time to come to Wednesday night services perhaps have a stronger relationship with the Lord than the occasional Sunday morning visitor. I’m not saying this to puff you up, nor to denigrate our Sunday morning crowd. I am grateful for every person who comes, and makes up the assembly of Christ’s Church. But Wednesday nights are important…. Continue reading

Worship The King

I love Christmas time. I love it because we are reminded that God became man in order to save us from ourselves. Christmas is a joyous time when we celebrate the Baby in the Manger. Christmas fascinates us. Marshall Segal of Desiring God Ministries put it beautifully when … Continue reading

Kingdom Of Heaven Taken By Force

If you are born again you may fail – but Jesus will stand with you and lift you back up. When John had his crisis of faith Jesus did not abandon him. No, Jesus never abandons His children. Jesus did not condemn John, no more than He condemned Elijah in 1 Kings 19. After ministering that day Jesus told John’s disciples … Continue reading

Salvation Not A Counterfeit

I was reading an article by Dr. Russell Moore the other day called Does Jeremiah 29:11 Apply To You? I’m sure you’ve heard Jeremiah 29:11, or seen it on a sign or a get well card. The verse is very rarely quoted in the King James Version. Continue reading

The Scriptures And The Power Of God

The Temple authorities had allowed the services of God’s House to degrade into a place where communion with God was diminished, but tradition was exalted. When we come together as God’s Church we come together… Continue reading

Three Days and Nights Ago

The prophets all spoke of this Jesus. He would be the Messiah Who would offer salvation to the world. If a scientist were to discover a cure for cancer or Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s the world would celebrate him and offer him the greatest adulation. Jesus Christ came to this earth to offer a cure for something greater than Cancer, greater than any disease you can think of. Jesus came to this earth to offer a cure for sin and death. He came to offer eternal life and supernatural cleansing to all who would believe. But how was Christ perceived? The prophets Continue reading

Who Is This Man?

Jerusalem was filled with people. The time of the Passover Feast was once more upon Israel, and every faithful Jew was to go to the Temple to honor God their Savior. As families prepared to sacrifice a lamb without spot or blemish following the commandment of God another crowd descended on the city. Continue reading

The Greatest Sermon

We have all heard sermons that are memorial, but too often we hear sermons that are forgettable. On the day that Mary Magdalene and Mary Cleopas went to the Tomb of Christ they heard one of the greatest – and shortest – sermons ever preached. That sermon was preached by an angel. Continue reading
