Building for God Is a Battle

1/20/2022
Despite the quality of his character, Nehemiah was under constant attack by enemies. They used the tricks of the devil: sending emissaries from hell or close by, egregious lies, entrapment, and emotional sabotage, but that did not deter Nehemiah from the work God sent him to do. We face the same tactics of opposition in building God’s church today, but if we keep our hands to the plow, God will get the victory.

Tools to Fight the devil

Get Up and Shake Yourself Off

1/11/2022
The "it's always sunny" doctrine that is commonly preached today, ignores the reality of depression that is rampant in America today. Examples are given of many of those in the Bible that suffered with depression. The promise is revealed from Isaiah 52:2 that if you shake yourself off, get up and by that act of faith, God will begin to loosen the bands that keep you captive.

Spiritual Vision Comes in Stages

1/10/2022
Teaching from the book of Mark, the passage of Jesus healing the blind man in Bethsaida is highlighted. It is explained that this is the only instance of Jesus healing in stages. The point is further expounded upon with a review of the chapter. This account reveals more than just Jesus healing. Jesus uses it as a parable for His disciples to learn that our vision of spiritual things comes in stages, not all at once. VF-1807 Mark 8:22-26 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

The Mystery of Salvation in Christ

1/7/2022
The word “mystery”, if we understand its Biblical use and more specifically its use by the apostle Paul in the book of Colossians, is not something cryptic that we can’t know or understand; it’s revealed in the person and work of Jesus Christ: the mind-boggling thing that we can be saved by something that happened over 2,000 years ago!

God Reconciled All Things to Himself

1/6/2022
Just as God created all things, He has reconciled all things to Himself. That doesn’t mean that all will be saved, but rather that Christ’s sacrifice at the cross made peace, making it possible for us to become friends of God instead of enemies. From that moment on, a change began to occur in those who hear and respond. This change is not merely a disposition of an individual, nor their legal relationship to God, but a total state of his or her life! Colossians 1:20 VF-2272 Watch, Listen...

The Battle for Your Soul and the Concept of Commitment

1/3/2022
There is a battle for your soul, and it is dangerous to fail to understand the enemy is always there. A target is on your back when you open your mouth and make a commitment. When our committedness or our attitude towards our commitment changes, we open up the door for the devil to pick us off. We must treat Christ as our fort, our place of resistance, and recognize that putting on the full armor of God means putting on Christ, who fortifies us from the inside. When we mess up, we need to...

God Demands Respect

12/31/2021
In the midst of laying out God's instructions to His people, there is the story of an incident God used to make an example. The son of an Israelitish woman was condemned to death for cursing the name of God. God made it clear that He would not tolerate blasphemy; He demands respect. Failing to recognize that God is who He says He is, especially when we have His presence with us, is like a knife piercing His heart. Leviticus 24:10-23 VF-2200 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

God Is Still Calling Outcasts

This is a message of grace. God is not an elitist who associates with some people and not with others.

Witnesses of the Risen Christ

12/29/2021
It is a mistake to assume the disciples were the only witness of the risen Christ. Such an assumption leaves a big gap in explaining the vast spread of Christianity in such a short period of time. A careful reading of the book of Acts shows us that there were many more witnesses whose preaching was consistently focused on one thing: the risen Christ and the power of His Resurrection.

Galatians: Crucified with Christ, Liberty at Last

12/27/2021
The cross cannot remain an event of the past; without the cross, there would be no resurrection. We can either flee from the cross or embrace it as the means of a slow death of our old nature. Christ's death on His cross brought an end to the jurisdiction of the Law. We have union with Christ in death, resurrection, and ascension when we take up our own cross. The cross is where everything begins to be clear about working out our salvation in Christ. VF-2164 Watch, Listen and Learn 24x7 at...

12/24/2021
Jude points out from an apocryphal source that Enoch spoke and prophesied of these ungodly people who creep into the church and pervert the message of the gospel. They preach a doctrine of no consequences for our actions rather than no ultimate condemnation to those in Christ. We are frail, filthy sinners, but we are saved by grace from God’s wrath because Jesus paid the price for us. Jude’s examples out of the Old Testament and future prophecy show there are always consequences for those...
