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

“Atheist Missions.”

Written by

There are tens of thousands of Christian missions around the world that feed the homeless and take care of the poor. So I wondered how many atheist missions I could find on the Internet. I typed in “Atheist Missions,” and guess how many came up? Zip. I tried the search words...

A Day of Judgment.

Written by

The Bible makes it clear that there will be a Day of Judgment. The Scriptures warn, “Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished” (Prov. 11:21). However, will the standard of judgment be the Ten Commandments, or something else? Some believe it be the words of Jesus that...

Heaven’s silence as approval.

Written by

The ungodly see that they live as well as, if not better than, those who refrain from sin (see Matt. 5:45). Instead of being humbled by God’s goodness, they see Heaven’s silence as approval.

Job 12: 6The tents of robbers prosper, And those who provoke God are secure—In what...

A guardian near the throne.

“Last of all, let each child of God rejoice that we have a guardian so near the throne. Every Jew in Shushan must have felt hope when he remembered that the queen was a Jewess. Today let us be glad that Jesus is exalted.” Charles Spurgeon

Heard but refused.

Written by

Zedekiah heard the gracious offer of God’s mercy many times, and yet he refused it. Millions are like the stubborn king. There are times when we want to give up on them, but how can we? Never stop pleading with the lost. As long as there is breath in their lungs, there must be hope in our...

Consequences in ignorance.

Written by

We still violate God’s Law, even if we sin in ignorance. Even though someone is ignorant of the law of gravity, they suffer the consequences of violating its laws. God does, however, take ignorance into account (see Acts 17:30). See also Lev. 4:27,28; 5:17

Ten hungry lions.

Written by

For us, God also stopped the mouths of the ten hungry lions of the Ten Commandments. He sent the Messiah to take the curse of the Law on our behalf (see Gal. 3:13) and save us from being devoured by their sharp teeth. We will therefore be found innocent before God of the Day of Judgment.

Daniel 6:22M...

The Law of God did call for the stoning of non-virgin brides, as well as rebellious, drunken youths (see 21:18–21), with the purpose that “all Israel shall hear and fear.” However, there is no recorded incident in Scripture of either happening. It seems that the Law was feared in...

The best thing you can do for new converts.

“Is it wise to send new converts out into the battlefield before they are grounded in the Word and apologetics?”

It is the best thing you can do for them. The woman at the well didn’t go to a seminary before she testified of the Savior, and she brought a whole village to Him (see...

Babbling baboons.

Written by

The wisdom of man is foolishness with God. The wisest of the wise of this world are but babbling baboons when it comes to understanding the simplest of the things of God. The natural mind cannot receive them (see 1 Cor. 2:14). The simplest Christian, however, has the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16)...

1949.

This was a promise, Ezekiel 34:13, that God reiterated many times (see Deut. 30:3; Isa. 11:11; Jer. 16:15; 23:3; Zeph. 3:20; Zech. 10:10). The fulfillment of this promise started in 1949, when the Jews took hold of the land of Palestine and began to return from throughout the earth. The Jews...

Their blood is on our hands.

Written by

Ezekiel 3:18,19. Memorize these verses and share them with professing Christians who do not seem to care about the unsaved. If we neglect to warn those who are about to die, their blood is on our hands. Civil law says that if we let another human being die when it’s within our ability to save...

Micah 5:2. This prophecy of the Messiah’s birthplace was fulfilled in Luke 2:4–7. See also Matt. 2:4–6; John 7:42.

“How to know the Lord?”

Written by

To know the Lord, simply humble yourself, and with a tender conscience look at the Ten Commandments. Have you ever lied, stolen, blasphemed, looked with lust (adultery of the heart), etc. Then judge yourself—are you guilty or innocent? Would you go to heaven or hell? Then look to the...

Never stop pleading with those who are not receptive to the gospel. That seemingly hardhearted person may be thinking about every word you speak.

As soldiers of Christ we must always be “fit” to go to war and to do battle. We should always be prepared to share our faith (1 Pet. 3:15). So, practice what you preach. Practice how to answer everyone—atheist, agnostic, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness, etc.—with the...

The soul continues forever.

Some don’t believe that we have a soul that continues on after death. This verse clearly shows that physical death occurs when the soul separates from the body (in the same way that spiritual death is separation from God).
