“My Calling and My Passion”

In June, fifty-eight years ago, I began to fulfill God’s call on my life as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I was quite young, the Holy Spirit etched the following words into my heart —

“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me, no god was formed, nor will there be one after Me.

I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from Me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed -– I, and not some foreign god among you. You are My witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Yes, from ancient days I am He. No one can deliver out of My hand. When I act, who can reverse it?” (Isaiah 43:10-13)

“We Can Be One Nation Under God — Again”

Our nation had a great beginning.

The reason we have done so well for so long is because the nation was established on Judeo-Christian values. God’s word was our moral and spiritual compass. It has been that way for most of our years of existence — but times have changed and laws have been passed that are taking us further and further away from our foundation.

(In recent times, historians have been omitting our Biblical heritage … text books.)

Note: There is a lesson we should learn from God’s dealings with the children of Israel. As long as they honored and served Him, He blessed them. But when they forgot Him and forsook Him, He disciplined them – even allowing pagan nations to conquer them.

The United States will not escape the judgment of God.

“The Role of the Promised Comforter”

The night before His crucifixion, we find our Lord Jesus sharing with His disciples about the promised Comforter/Holy Spirit.

In John 15:26-27, we read:
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which procedeth from the Father, He shall bear witness of me; and you also bear witness because you have been with me from the beginning”

“A Study About Ananias”

There are two men in the New Testament by the same name.

The first we read about in Acts 5:1-5. He lied about how much he had received for a piece of property he sold. The Holy Spirit revealed to Peter how much Ananias had received. When Peter questioned him, he gave the Apostle a different figure. Peter confronted him about the discrepancy and told him, “you have not lied to man, but to God.” At that very moment, Ananias dropped dead. WOW! That would be an attention getter.

“Being Sifted”

1 Peter 1:3-9

Introduction

On the farm, we had a very important piece of equipment known as a “Fanning Mill”. It was used to sort out the good grain from unwanted contaminants such as bits of straw, chaff, stones and soil particles.

The machine had a series of sieves. The hopper on top was filled with the grain that was to be separated from the weed seeds and other undesirable issues. As you turned the crank, the grain began to make its way through the mill, and the unwanted issues were separated from the good grain.

“The Fall of Man”

“Comprehending Our True Identity in Christ”
My heart’s desire is that each of us would really understand the life we have by having Jesus Christ in our lives. I fear that many have a head knowledge of the Christian faith, but not a heart transformation.

Ken Boa, in his marvelous book, “Conformed to His Image”, refers to our relationship with Christ as, “the exchanged life.” In Galatians 2:20, the Apostle Paul wrote, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

“The Fall of Man”

“Praise God for The Resurrection”

In Philippians 3:10-11, the Apostle Paul wrote –
“I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him (Christ) from the dead. I want to suffer with Him, sharing in His death, so that one way or another, I will experience the resurrection from the dead.”

I can imagine that many of us would love to experience the mighty power that raised Christ from the dead. But, we might shrink back from suffering with Him and sharing in His death.
One of my favorite theologians is Dr. Ron Rhodes. Let me share with you what he wrote about the crucifixion
