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

Ah! How foolish we are!

Written by

“Ah! How foolish we are! How we repeat the folly of our first parent every day when we seek to hide sin from conscience, and then think it is hidden from God.” –Charles Spurgeon

Blood for forgiveness.

Written by

Before Adam and Eve sinned, they were two happy, naked vegetarians. Immediately after eating the fruit God commanded them not to eat, they were naked and ashamed. In an effort to cover their shame, they sewed fig leaves together. When God found them in the garden, He slaughtered the first animal in...

Jesus was morally perfect.

Written by

Skeptics try to find sin in Jesus Christ, but they cannot. He was morally perfect. The above is about the best anyone can do, along with the claim that He disobeyed His parents, or He lost His temper when He cleared the temple.

In Matt. 21:1–6, Jesus instructed His disciples to go and get the...

Do we have a soul?

Written by

Skeptics say that they don’t believe in the “soul.” Yet the soul is simply the life that inhabits the body. It is the real you. Genesis 35:18 says of Rachel, “her soul was departing (for she died)…” If someone lost all of his limbs in a terrible accident, though...

As deadly as a bullet.

Written by

“Friendly fire” can be as deadly as an enemy bullet. Always be mindful that attacks can come from the closest of friends and family. They are the ones who can hurt if you let your guard down and forget that you are not wrestling against flesh and blood (see Eph. 6:12–20). It was...

When sin came in, the life went out.

Written by

Atheists attest to the fact that their spirit (their God-conscious part) is dead. They know God exists intellectually—because of their conscience and creation—but they are not aware of His omnipresence because they are dead spiritually. They are like a fish in the ocean that is not...

No room for evolution.

Written by

God made the heavens with “all” their host. He made the earth and “all” things on it. He made the seas and “all” that are in them. There is no room for theories that anything evolved of its own accord.

You have made heaven,

Jesus the Ark of the Covenant.

Written by

Everything about the Ark of the Covenant was symbolic of the Messiah. It was made of wood, indicating the Messiah would be a human. It was overlaid with gold, signifying the Messiah would be divine. It contained three objects: the tablets of stone, a pot of manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded....

Are we shocked?

“Are we shocked at the unnatural cruelty of the ancient idolaters in sacrificing their children? We may justly be so. But are there not very many parents, who, by bad teaching and wicked examples, and by the mysteries of iniquity which they show their children, devote them to the service of...

A supernatural book.

Written by

Do we delight in the Word of God? Do we rejoice in God’s Word as one who finds great treasure? (See Psa. 119:162.) The key is to consume the Word of God, to meditate upon the Word, to digest it and let it become part of us. The Bible is a supernatural book, and can give us supernatural energy...

Preach the fear of God.

Written by

The reason for sorcery, adultery, false witness, and other transgressions of God’s Law is a lack of the fear of God. Never hesitate to preach the fear of God. It causes sinners to depart from sin (see Prov. 16:6). Preach the thunderings and lightnings of Mount Sinai and preach future...

Together in the net.

Written by

Notice the good fish and the bad fish, in Matthew 13:47-51, were in the net together. The world is not caught in the dragnet of the kingdom of heaven; they remain in the world.

The “fish” that are caught are those who respond to the gospel—the evangelistic “catch.” They...

Many atheists refuse to admit they believe the entire universe came into being from nothing, because it is a scientific impossibility and they recognize how silly it sounds. If everything didn’t come from nothing, their alternative is to say that creation (nature) created itself. However, a...

God’s seal.

God has sealed His own with His Holy Spirit (see 2 Cor. 1:22; Eph. 1:13; 4:30), and they grieve over the wickedness of man. He will one day place a seal on the foreheads of His servants, to protect them during the end times (see Rev. 7:2,3; 9:4)

The order of genuine conversion.

Written by

Here is the order of genuine conversion. A sinner should “mourn” for his sinful state. He should have the spirit of heaviness (be laboring and heavy laden over his sinful heart; see Matt. 11:28). It is these converts who become trees of righteousness because they are the planting of the...

There was a criminal who was condemned to die in the electric chair. The courts had appointed a lawyer on behalf of the criminal, and he had worked hard to get him a reprieve.

Beware of the subtlety of the enemy. He will whisper that God has forsaken you the first time things go seriously wrong for you. God is not a man that He should lie.

A man in a rowboat once found himself caught in fast-moving water, heading for a massive waterfall with jagged rocks 150 feet below. A passerby saw him rowing against the current, but his efforts were futile. Minute by minute he was drawn closer and closer to the roaring falls. The passerby ran to...

The church and the human body.

Written by

The main passage likening the Church to the human body is 1 Cor. 12:14–31, describing how each part fulfills its own function in a healthy body. But notice in v. 28 that this passage pertains to in-reach (within the local church), not outreach (evangelism). There is no mention of evangelists...

Many think God doesn’t exist because their prayers weren’t answered. Yet, we are warned in Scripture that if we have sin in our hearts, God will not hear our prayers (see Psa. 66:18; John 9:31; see also Prov. 28:9; Isa. 1:15). So rather than being disillusioned and thinking that God...

The God of Israel is the one true God. Was the universe created by the gods of Eastern religions? Or by Baal or Dagon? No, the Creator of all things is the One who revealed Himself to Israel. He gave His perfect Law to Moses to show humanity that He is perfect, holy, just, and good (see Rom....
