  1. Beware and Behold It is interesting and enlightening to see that the Word of God is full of warnings, especially in reference to false religions and teachers. The most pointed and descriptive words that Jesus spoke, while here on earth, were directed to the religious leaders of His time, namely the Pharisees and Sadducees. However, what He said ...
  2. Watch Ye “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. Let all your things be done with charity (love).” (1 Cor. 16:13-14) The apostle Paul was used by the Lord many times to encourage the saints to be courageous and to fight the good fight of faith. The people of Corinth needed this ...
  3. Unknowables “That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of ...
  4. The Surprising Secret Our Lord clearly and consistently told His hearers, including the disciples, that He would come again. He would remind them that His suffering (death of cross) would precede His coming again in great glory. A lengthy discourse and description is given of His second coming to earth in Matthew 24. All of that passage will not ...
  5. On Ready Almost every nation under the sun believes in military preparedness. They are armed to the teeth and the arms race continues to move at a rapid pace. It reminds us of that expressive verse found in Psalms 7:32: “If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.” The bow ...
  6. Giving Him Thanks (Read Luke 17:11-19) “And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God. And fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks; and he was a Samaritan.” (Luke 17:15-16) This account of the ten lepers is a picture of misery and suffering, yet it is ...
  7. Peculiar People It takes a rare or unique combination of characteristics to be a servant of the Lord. These traits are not always what the world would expect a faithful servant to be. The Lord Jesus, in speaking to his disciples, made an unusual statement in describing the disciples as He sent them forth to serve. “Behold, I ...
  8. God’s Helpers “Therefore we were comforted in your comfort; yea, and exceedingly the more joyed we for the joy of Titus, because his spirit was refreshed by you all.” (2 Corinthians 7:13) Those who love the Lord and love His children should realize that all ministry, that is true to the Word, is important. However, there has always ...
  9. Wisdom in Person “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” (1 Corinthians 1:19) “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks (Gentiles), Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. ” (1 Corinthians 1:24) We must keep in mind that wisdom ...
  10. God’s Divine Will and Works “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) We must believe that God has a will and a purpose for all things, although we cannot always fully understand how it works out for our good. Our verse to ...
  11. Hath Begun—Will Perform “Being confident of this very thing that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6) This assuring Scripture is especially clear in view of the fact that the world is full of incomplete works of men. Man has a difficult time ever starting a ...
  12. Shame for His Name As we read through the book of Acts in our Bible, we cannot help but be impressed with the acute suffering and persecution endured by the followers of Jesus. Apart from dispensational distinctions, it is seen that a common thread or theme runs throughout the book, that theme is: “Yea, and all that will live godly ...
  13. Empty and Broken “And he divided the three hundred men into three companies and he put a trumpet in every man’s hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers. And the three companies blew the trumpets, and broke the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands and the trumpets in their right hands to blow ...
  14. Once Upon a Time This theme has a very familiar ring. Most everyone has heard this beginning to a story, but taken from a spiritual point of view, it is very meaningful. For instance, the Bible tells us that Christ Died Once “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment; so Christ was once ...
  15. Honesty with Honor Awise American statesman once said, “Honesty is the best policy.” It would be wonderful if every elected or appointed official would take that statement to heart. However, we know that the statement was not original with this person, but has been taught in God’s Word from ancient times. Paul wrote to the Romans: “Recompense to no ...
  16. Be-Attitudes The human life can mainly be divided into two areas, our attitude and our actions. It is surprising how much our thinking and feeling concerning life controls our actions in life. If we love someone we are more likely to do good things for them. If we love the Lord, we are more likely to ...
  17. God’s Power Does power create energy or does energy create power? It is similar to asking, does the event make the man or does man make the event. The first question is harder or more complex because the words “power” and “energy” are closely connected, even in the Scriptures. Let’s leave the answers to God; however, it ...
  18. He Knows Our Need “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For all these things do the Gentiles seek;) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these ...
