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

Great fire from heaven.

Written by

Never hesitate to use the Law of God as a great fire from heaven, as a terrible whirlwind (see 38:1,2), to show the sinner that though he may consider himself to be rich in this world, he has nothing. Time will strip him of everything he holds dear. The Law lets him hear God’s voice out of...

It is true that the Bible says, “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23). Those who say such things are gambling the whole of their eternity on the meaning of one word: “death.” They assume it means the “termination of existence,” but their assumption is...

DNA and God.

Written by

In 2004, the atheist world was shocked when famed British atheist Antony Flew announced that he believed in the existence of God. For decades he had heralded the cause of atheism. It was the incredible complexity of DNA that opened his eyes:

In a recent interview, Flew stated, “It now seems to...

Real wrath, real anger.

Written by

God’s fury against sin is held back by His long suffering. It is only His mercy that restrains the lightning of His wrath. Our God is a consuming fire (see Heb. 12:29). See also Zech. 2:5 comment. See also Deut. 10:16 comment regarding circumcision of the heart.

Sheep with a Shepherd.

Written by

How applicable that God likens humanity to sheep, and how wonderful that God would strike the Shepherd to save us from slaughter. See John 10:11; 1 Pet. 2:24,25.

A deep valley.

Written by

Indecision is a deep valley that will take multitudes to hell. Think of the millions who have a form of knowledge about God, but they have never seen the real issues that are at stake. If our Creator is the God of the Bible, then hell is a reality for those who transgress His perfect Law. But...

Relationship evangelism.

Written by

Don’t let the common philosophy of “relationship evangelism” steal your zeal. This is the idea that you must befriend people and build a relationship before witnessing to them. If you believe that, consider two questions. First, who are the hardest people to witness to?...

“Jesus never even existed.”

Surprisingly, some skeptics claim that Jesus didn’t exist, though to do so they have to reject the entire New Testament historical record. The New Testament contains hundreds of references to Jesus Christ, and in terms of ancient manuscript evidence, this is extraordinarily strong proof of...

The philosophy of karma.

Karma. It is popular in Western culture to embrace something called “karma.” Hindus, Buddhists, New Agers, and others believe in this concept of a cycle of cause and effect. It is popular because it sounds reasonable—you bear the consequences for your own actions—and...

A recent six-day creation.

Written by

Did God create the whole universe, including the original plants, animals, and first two people (Adam and Eve) in six literal 24-hour days? Or did creation take place over millions of years?

Everywhere else in the Old Testament, when the Hebrew word for “day” (yom) appears with...

What have I done?

Written by

See Jeremiah 8:12. This gives a picture of true contrition. Those who recognize how abominable their sin is in God’s eyes will be broken and will humbly say, “What have I done?” (see v. 6). While modern evangelism often goes to great lengths to avoid even hinting at...

Jesus’ many names and titles.

Jesus is given many names and titles, and the day will come when all of humanity will kneel before Him and acknowledge Him as “Lord.” Here are some of His other titles, in the hope that the lost will soften their heart toward Him and trust in His mercy:

Do you suppose that Jesus is with you?

Written by

Multitudes sit in churches “supposing” that Jesus is with them, but they don’t know Him (see Matt. 7:21–23). They are false converts who will be sorted out on Judgment Day. They have never obeyed the command to repent and trust that Savior. That’s disobedience.

The wrath of God does not end with death…

Such a thought (2 Thessalonians 1: 7) should stir in us a passion for evangelism. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. For verses that warn of its reality, see 2 Tim. 4:1.

We must bring God’s Law to the people.

Written by

We must bring God’s Law to the people. They will not come to it. Men love darkness rather than light, and they will not come to the light lest their deeds be exposed (see John 3:19–21). It is the light of this Law that exposes sin (see Rom. 7:7). The Law faces the Water Gate; it causes...

Sin is lawlessness.

Search the Scriptures to make sure that everything you hear lines up with the Word of God. If it’s not biblical, reject it as you would a drop of deadly poison.

A man after God’s own heart.

Written by

There is much speculation about why God called David “a man after My own heart” (1 Sam. 13:14; Acts 13:22). This seems strange given his sin with Bathsheba and the fact that God said he was a “man of war” who has shed much blood (1 Chron. 22:8). Perhaps it was because David...
