Glory of the Lord

Isaiah 40:5 “And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”   In the Book of Ezekiel chapters 10-11 we see the Glory of the Lord departing from the temple. In the first chapters of Ezekiel God brings out the… Read more »

Supremacy of God in Punishment

“Supremacy of God in Punishment” might sound like an odd title, but one thing that we forget about God, or at least like to put on the back burner, is that God is a God that will punish.   1 Corinthians 15 tells us that there will be a day when all authority, dominion and… Read more »

Supremacy in Redemption

When we think about God, who He is and what He has done, we must give some thought to the Supremacy of His redemption. In reading through Isaiah chapters 42-45 one sees the number of times the Lord shares who He is and how He is the only One.   One of the first things… Read more »

GOD and Who He Is

One of the problems that we face today is that we have an inadequate view of who God is. Most, if not all of our problems, can be traced to the lack of knowledge of who God is.   It is interesting to note that neither the prophets nor the apostles tried to prove the existence… Read more »

Why We Need Reformation – Part 2

The third thing that we need to ask ourselves in regards to our culture:  Is the church making an impact in our culture today? Who is in control in our culture? Is it God or is it Satan? When we turn on TV what do we see: programs that honor God or Satan? When we listen… Read more »

Jewish tradition says that he was brutally martyred by being placed in a hollowed trunk of a tree and then “sawed in two.”   Reading through the book… Read more »

The Gospel – Part 6 – The Church

1 Timothy 3:15 “If I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.”   We guard the gospel in the way we live. This to me is very important. I read that those inside… Read more »

Gospel – Part 5 – The Church

Acts 13:1 “In the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul.”   Is the church an organism or an organization? I think most of you who are reading this would say that it is an… Read more »

Gospel – Part 4 – Family of God

Matthew 16:18 “I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”   Another thing that reformation will do is clear up our thinking on the church. If there is any subject that needs reformed biblical thinking it is on the purpose of the church. We read from our text that… Read more »

American Eagle

I began to think about what was written on Facebook about President Trump, the government shut down and some of the issues that we are faced with in the 21st century. First, knowing that the eagle is the American symbol; for the eagle to soar it must have two wings that are balanced and working… Read more »
