Don’t think you are above temptation. Adam and Eve in Eden had a superior advantage than we do out of Eden, yet the Tempter succeeded in alluring them in to disobeying their Creator.

– – 239 – –

The greatness of a man can be measured by his ability to subdue his own passions. We need the Holy Spirit to give us self-control so our feelings can not subdue our ability to reason.

– – 238 – –

We take nothing with us into Heaven, but a character developed in Christ-likeness. A character cultivated to love others, to stand firm against evil, and strong to bear adversity is fit for eternity.

– – 237 – –

Satan has brought sorrow, pain, and worries to our world, but the Lord uses these things to test our faith in Him. Trials strengthen our trust in God, and that must be settled before we get to Heaven.

– – 236 – –

Without the Bible to guide our mind, it is easy to allow our feelings to dictate our beliefs, but no one will be saved because they feel like it. Salvation is ours not by feeling but by faith.

– – 235 – –

When the Lord returns, those who are in harmony with Him will remain in harmony with Him. Those who have rejected Him will remain in rejection of Him. This is why today is the day of salvation.

– – 234 – –

We do not qualify for heaven when we have obtained a godlike perfection. We become fitted for heaven when we learn to depend on the grace of Jesus Christ despite our sinful nature.

– – 233 – –

We have a sinful nature until mortality puts on immorality at the resurrection. Until then, we live by faith and obedience to God’s Word. We live according to our new nature in Christ Jesus.

– – 232 – –

Seasons of persecution call for a faith that will not falter. The God of Creation must remain our only object of worship, Him who made Heaven and Earth, can not be dismissed by man’s edicts.

– – 231 – –

Satan numbers all of us as his subjects because of Adam and Eve, but God numbers us as His. Though we are guilty of sinning, we have not relinquished our hold on the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

– – 230 – –

We need a greater earnestness in prayer and study of Scripture. Without a steadfast communion with God, our odds against overcoming trials or even discerning apostasy are slim.

– – 229 – –

The message for all is repent for the Kingdom of God is near. No attitude of hatred by any class of people, as oppressor or oppressed, is exempt from its need of repentance at Calvary.

– – 228 – –

Like Cain, who rejected obedience to God, yet was marked for earthly safety, so those who reject God’s seal of the Spirit will be marked for earthly safety to buy and sell, but their end will be as Able’s.

– – 227 – –

The parade of immorality will likely become more intense as we approach the day of the Lord. Now is the time to teach our children that not all in the public view is normal and true.

– – 226 – –

The events of these last days are challenging us to know what we believe. A sifting of faith is occurring in the church pews, separating complacent church members from genuine disciples of Christ.

– – 225 – –

Don’t be fooled by the detractors who argue that many denominations mean the church is fractured. In the end, a faithful remnant will emerge as a united church when Jesus returns.

– – 224 – –

Professed revelations from heaven contradicting the testimony of Scripture are not from God. What has been written has been written because God has no afterthought or changes to His word.

– – 223 – –

We do not need to be deceived. God’s people will find their safety in the days of confusion only as they stand firm upon the living Word. Our response to all things questionable should be It is Written.

– – 222 – –

Miracles and unexplainable phenomenons may be pointed to as evidence of God’s work, but it could be Satan’s counterfeit work. Be a student of Bible prophecy and don’t fall for the coming deception.

– – 221 – –

We will meet Jesus in the air, after the resurrection, so when stories of the lying angel of light being received as the returning Lord, don’t believe what you see on television or social media.

– – 220 – –

Our faith must be firmly planted on Scripture, especially a knowledge of end-time events. The enemy will convincingly work signs and wonders but he can not fool the one who knows his schemes.

– – 219 – –

When Christ appears, it will be with great power, accompanied by thousands of angels, with shout and trumpet. His glory will silence the foes of His followers and they will know they fell for a lie.

– – 218 – –

Like he who dared to harass the Creator in the wilderness, those who do his bidding overplay their hand. They are drunk on self-exultation but the sobering truth is on the side of reality.

– – 217 – –

Satan looks for the unopened Bible of those who profess to be shepherds of God’s flock that he may lure them into championing social causes, anything but the teaching of God’s Word.

– – 216 – –

The trying circumstances of life help us gather strength for our future. With a list of remembrance testifying to the Lord’s goodness in our past, the trials of tomorrow become easier to face.

– – 215 – –

Our obedience to truth helps us discipline our soul in faithfulness to our God. Like blocks upon blocks, each stand we take builds a foundation upon the safety and solid rock of God’s Word.

– – 214 – –

The precious privilege of God’s light in the calm days must be cherished in our hearts and minds so when the storms come rushing into our lives, we will have a well of hope to draw from.

– – 213 – –

The events of these last days are challenging us to know what we believe. A sifting of faith is occurring in the church pews, separating complacent church members from genuine disciples of Christ.

– – 212 – –

If we could pull back the curtain of the unseen we would be shocked to see evil angels crowded around those gathered in the name of Jesus, but relieved to see holy angels keeping them in check.

– – 220 – –

The habit of sin will drag us down until we recognize it as deadly. Then we can give it to Jesus in faith, accept His gift of life, believe that we have died to that sin, and prayerfully live accordingly.

– – 219 – –

There is equality in Calvary. Every sin, every man, all can find forgiveness in the outstretched arms at the cross of Christ. Whatever your guilt, carry for the last time to Calvary.

– – 218 – –

The straight testimony of Scripture is the need of this hour. There is no power in worldly philosophy, cultural appeals, motivational quips, there is only God’s Word shining the light on God’s Son.

– – 217 – –

No one in the Christian faith suddenly falls off the deep end. It is small increments of turning from Christ and embracing self, unnoticed to all, that bring about a headlong fall into sin.

– – 216 – –

Teaching doctrine requires a deep digging comparing verse with verse. It’s necessary hard work but if you won’t wield the shovel, don’t pretend that you are preaching God’s Word.

– – 215 – –

The Bible uses the euphemism “walk” to denote our daily life as a disciple of Christ. It doesn’t say run or nap, but walk because it is all about deliberate, consistent, forward, individual steps.

– – 214 – –

Many with only an outward form of religion are conforming to the world. Their fear of being at odds with family and friends is more powerful than the faith they have claimed to believe.

– – 213 – –

The limit of God’s forbearance will be reached and wrath will silence the war against His saints. The martyrs crying for justice will be answered and Christ will restore His Kingdom.

– – 212 – –

As time runs out, Christians will be victims of indignation because of their refusal to accept cultural iniquity. But no degree of hate or injustice will prevent the Lord from vindicating His followers.

– – 211 – –

Satan stirs up strife among those who claim Christ so he can point to his claim of Scripture’s inadequacy. He will answer his Creator, but let’s stop helping him by feeling a need to react to all we disagree with.

– – 210 – –

Sometimes your witness will repel others, but that’s not within your control. Christian character and conduct is often a constant rebuke to those who refuse Jesus’ saving grace.

– – 209 – –

Every man is capable of betraying Jesus as did Judas. If we dwell on our covetous wants more than the mercies of our Lord, we too can harden our hearts and lose all compassion for others.

– – 208 – –

We can only trust our hand in the hand of Jesus. Churches that once brought us confidence from their stand on truth are giving heed to seducing spirits, but we can not safely walk in social compromise.

– – 207 – –

There are many who have not abandoned truth. Like the stars which are only made known in deep darkness these quietly faithful ones will shine as powerful witnesses against error.

– – 206 – –

The half-hearted Christian will yield his faith when confronted by a hater of truth. They will flip flop and deny whatever it takes to be accepted, but the true Christian will stand firm as a rock.

– – 205 – –

Jesus was hated without cause by men who want no God but themselves. His life brought a conviction of their own sin and their unwillingness to repent stirred up their unfounded hate.

– – 204 – –

The prospect of facing persecution does not need to worry us. In times of peril and danger the Spirit of God will manifest His power upon us and through us as we stand unwavering in Christ.

– – 203 – –

Our country has been blessed beyond others because it has been an asylum for Bible believers to practice in freedom. Legislation against those freedoms is a reversal of God’s blessings.

– – 202 – –

The Lord has given His angels to keep watch over those who follow Him and trust in His word. If you have rejected Jesus Christ and are living as if you are lord, I’m scared for you.

– – 201 – –

Some who have risen in ranks of church leadership have abandoned teaching God’s Word to fight for social justice. Had they stayed with the Bible they wouldn’t be stumbling blocks to the church and culture.

– – 200 – –

The Lord regards persecution of His followers as done to Himself. God will arise in vengeance for them. Those who scorn and harm His servants for truth’s sake will be silenced.

– – 199 – –

Amid the troubling times telling of the near return of Christ and the end of the age, there is a work to be done in inviting others join with us in finding hope through God’s Word.

– – 198 – –

While Jesus is preparing our mansions in glory, we should be preparing are hearts to receive them in gratitude and to occupy them in a manner worthy of a child of the King.

– – 197 – –

Many have become crippled by a spirit of strife. They are agitated by those who seem at peace despite being in the same circumstances, but they refuse to know the One who gives the peace.

– – 196 – –

The strength of God’s people lie in their faithfulness to Him. There can be no comprise of God’s Word and no bartering for middle ground between truth and error without weakening our faith.

– – 195 – –

War was first known in Heaven, not because it is holy, but because sin is so horrific. Evil does not respond to reason and it can not co-exists with peace except as its perpetrators rest in peace.

– – 194 – –

All the universe will declare that God’s judgment is just. The fallen angels and unsaved men can not contest their crime against the records of time vindicating the Son of God.

– – 193 – –

The time will come when the wicked are raised and rallied for battle, but their rage will turn on Satan. The appearing of King Jesus and His saints will convince them that they have been deceived.

– – 192 – –

Satan’s own work is condemning him. He has accused Christ of wrongdoing out of his jealous evil heart and now the leash of God’s patience is exposing his lies.

– – 191 – –

Many have trained themselves to war against God. They have made a habit of hating what is pure, true, and just. They have hardened their heart so thoroughly that heaven would be torturous to them.

– – 190 – –

In the judgement hall of eternity, a panoramic scene may unfold before the unsaved of every moment from their life when they rejected Jesus Christ and those who followed Him.

– – 189 – –

Everyone must die and face God. If you are okay with that, good. If you are not okay with that, go to Jesus now and confess your sins, believe in Him as your Savior, follow Him as your Lord.

– – 188 – –

Lightning strikes, molten fires, rivers dried up, earthquakes, destruction of cities, chaos, violence, and suicides from fear. But like in Noah’s day God’s people will be spared.

– – 187 – –

When the Jewish High Priest raised his hand to heaven in oath of condemnation against the agonizing Christ, he sealed the corporate fate of his nation and sent the gospel to the Gentiles.

– – 186 – –

Common sense is not a quality shared with evil. The Son of God brought mercy, healing, and peace but He was repaid with hate, envy, jeering, malice, betrayal, torture, and crucifixion.

– – 185 – –

Evil angels are not threaten by a religious person. But when a believer claims the name of Jesus for protection, they are driven back by the power of heavenly messengers.

– – 184 – –

Except we stand through faith in the name of Jesus and by the word of God, we too could be swept into the deception of counterfeit spirits. Supernatural manifestations are not evidence of God’s work.

– – 183 – –

If apostasy in the pulpit is not challenged from the pews, it means the parishioners have already been lulled to sleep. The abandonment of biblical doctrine reveals a Laodicean church.

– – 182 – –

John was shown the destruction poured out upon the earth from God’s wrath. He was also shown an innumerable company upon Mount Zion with the Lamb who were redeemed and unscathed.

– – 181 – –

Satan seeks to induce those in authority to plot against God’s people with oppressive decrees. But don’t forget how that worked out for Pharaoh, Haman, and King Darius’ governors and satraps..
