Needed: Reformation

   Background of Isaiah the Prophet   It was said that Isaiah’s ministry lasted for about sixty years and that he supposedly died under the terrible reign of Manasseh. 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 »

However, it is interesting to note… Read more »

The Gospel – Part 2

2 Timothy 1:14 “Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you — guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.”   First and second Timothy being part of what is known as the “Pastoral Epistles” or “Letters” has much that we should keep in mind as we serve our… Read more »

The Gospel

THE GOSPEL   2 Timothy 1:14 “Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you — guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.”   I believe that reformation will bring us back to the real gospel and what the real gospel can do. Paul said in Romans 1:16 “I… Read more »

Needed: An Awakening

Psalms 74:2 “Remember the people (NATION) you purchased of old, the tribe of your inheritance, whom you redeemed —Mount Zion, where you dwelt.”   In every society or culture we have what we call “opinion makers.” These are people who use words to make a living. We see how God used George Whitfield who came… Read more »

God or Man?

Proverbs 8:12-16 “I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have understanding and power. By me kings reign and rulers make laws that are just; by me… Read more »
