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

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 4

Written by

Romans 8:8 tells us the following truth:

Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.

This simply means that even though Christians are “born again” or “born from above” (cf. John 3), the truth is that Christians can live just like non-Christians. When we do, we do several things:

  1. we break off our fellowship with...

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 3

This is the choice we make…daily.

In our previous installment of this series, we discussed Romans 8:3-4. In this article, I want to move onto Romans 8:5-7.

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 2

Written by

Though Jesus defeated and condemned sin in the flesh, it is still something we also must choose through the empowering of His Spirit, not our own strength.

Do you ever feel as though you work “too hard” at being a Christian? Let me explain. One of the main goals of the enemy of our souls is to cause us to become so inwardly focused on...

Romans 8: Life in the Spirit, Part 1 Featured

Written by

In a recent post about the deaths of celebrities, I referenced Romans 8. As I indicated there, that chapter opens with a fact/promise and closes with another one. These promises are for the believer, the person who has placed their trust in God in Christ based on what He has accomplished on our behalf.

Since that post was published, others...

And Still They Die…Every Day

The world lost Doris Roberts…and 149,999 other people this past Sunday.

For anyone who’s been paying attention, people we tend to “honor” as celebrities have been dying since the first of year and the world, for the most part, has been keeping track. In March alone, several well-known actors and celebrities have gone onto...

How Evil Can Society Become? Featured

Written by

It is very difficult for me to actually picture just how bad society was back in Noah’s day (Genesis 6 – 9), when God saw what He saw as recorded for us in Genesis 6:5.

The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

I cannot imagine that...

It’s Really About Creating a Marriageless Genderless Society Featured

Lesbian journalist Masha Gessen says traditional marriage should be eliminated. Is that the ultimate game plan? It is part of it.

What most people are not aware of – and this includes the average gay or straight person, even those gays involved in activism to change the way society sees same-sex marriage – is that the real push behind...

Not sure if you’ve been keeping track, but with all the states passing legislation designed to protect people from the aggressive tactics of the LGBT crowd, more businesses and even celebrities are getting involved in boycotting states that have passed such legislation....

This is our job, folks!

The other day, I was reading comments on several forums that had to do with various theological interpretations connected to the End Times. This area is called Eschatology.

Eschatology is from the Greek word eschatos meaning last, farthest and then the study of. In essence then, Eschatology is the study of last...

Sensuality in Today’s Christian Music Featured

Yep…it’s all about God, right? Uh…sure.

I started playing drums in the 5th grade, while I was also playing the cornet, the piano, and singing in school and church choruses. I’ve always enjoyed music and during my growing up years, we enjoyed Bubble Gum favorites like “Sugar, Sugar” (The Archies), “Cherry...

Why Some Christians Work Hard to Change Society Featured

Written by

Not everything that sounds biblical IS biblical…do the research!

Previously, I wrote an article called, “Lot Was Righteous But Wasn’t Able to Change a Thing About Sodom,” and I pointed out a number of things including the fact that though in God’s eyes, Lot was considered righteous (his standing before God...

The push for many Christians today in America is to “take America back!” I realize that America is a very unique nation, having been created based on many biblical principles. Even our bankruptcy laws are based on Old Testament laws. There is much that has been crafted into the fiber of this nation that reaches back and connects to the...

I have to say that a pet peeve of mine is when I hear people saying “God is good!” but it is only usually stated after God has apparently done something remarkable that helped that particular person. I never hear this phrase uttered when something people consider tragic happens. I have to admit how difficult this is to...

This article deals with the final Birth Pang #9 that I believe is revealed in Scripture that leads up to the time just prior to the physical return of Jesus. This period of time is what is known as the Tribulation period, which is a final seven-year period of time in which God will pour out His wrath over the entire earth. Our most recent article...

And it’s all wrapped up in salvation…

In the first part of this two-part series, we introduced the idea that many people are unfortunately taught that to become a Christian tends to mean a life without troubles or problems. Certainly, if God has a “wonderful” plan for your life and mine, then how could it include those...

The short answer to the question asked by the title of this article is both yes and no. It depends upon how you look at things and a person’s definition of “wonderful.” Obviously, we need to look at what God means by a “wonderful” plan as well.

Let’s face it. Most if not all of us have heard some...

Defeat of the Religious Liberty Bill is Vexing Featured

Writing to believers, the apostle Peter stated the following about a man who many of us would not necessarily apply the term “righteous” to, when he said:

…and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men (2 Peter 2:7)

We’re all familiar with Sodom and Gomorrah and Lot, who, along with...

In our last installment in this series, we discussed some specifics related to the coming Antichrist. We noted that while some individuals believe that the Antichrist is more of a “spirit” rather than a specific individual, it is clear from Scripture that it is both. There is a spirit of Antichrist, which will find final...

He Is RISEN Indeed!

Today, marks the day of celebration Christians call Easter Sunday. We do so because of the fact that Jesus died and did so because of His great love for humanity. His desire that no one should perish (that does not refer to death, but to an eternity in hell; 2 Peter 3:9), prompted Him to become the sacrifice for sin that...

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 7

Last time, we discussed the global unification that’s coming, one that will ultimately be led and controlled by Satan’s spiritual son, Antichrist. Interestingly, just after the publication of that, I came across an article in which a top advisor to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott stated the following:

In our continuing series on Apostasy and Persecution, we covered Birth Pang #5 last time, which was a one-world government or globally unified system of governance. We noted that this will come about because it is foretold in God’s Word in numerous places. We also noted that we need always to remember that God will allow these...

Enemies of Freedom Continue to Trash 1st Amendment

The enemies of freedom only refer to Jesus when it serves their selfish purposes. To protect religious liberty today, is viewed as “hate.” Apparently, the 1st Amendment is now considered hate-speech.

It seems the only thing the world knows how to do is “mourn” and become “saddened” by the atrocities committed by radical Islamists.

A one-world government is coming. It’s on its way and there’s nothing you nor I can do to stop it. How do I know this? Because it is very clear from God’s Word that a global system of governance is going to exist during the last few years leading up to the physical return of Jesus Christ.
