Losing our Lives for the Gospel

When he had called the people to Himself, with his disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.” (Mark 8:34,35)

We can see here plainly enough that the recommendations of Jesus Christ fly in the face of everything that our natural instincts tell us.

The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, ” Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:16)

On Speculating on End-time Events

Back in 1986 I developed some interest in end-time events. What I have noticed over the years is that we can always construct an interesting theory that suggests that Jesus is coming back next year, or Real Soon Now. Six day theories, pre-trib rapture theories are modified from year to year by self-appointed “prophets” and others who find the whole thing so fascinating.

I have read _highly plausible_ and interesting theories interpreting Daniel, Revelation and other Scriptures – the only trouble is they contradict each other in many points.

How Can I Know that God is Real?

We can know God is real when we experience His reality. God wants us
to know that He is real. One way you can find out for sure is through an
experimental approach. Pray a prayer like this:

“God, if you are real, show me. If you really exist, I want to know
before it is too late.”

No one else needs to know if you prayed such a prayer. If there is no
God, then He can’t respond to any prayer.

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.

The Passage the Devil wanted out of your Bible

There are plenty of Bible-believing evangelicals and fundamentalists who say they believe the Word of God, but sadly you’ll not find nearly as many who believe the words of Mark 16:15-20. Some people stop at verse 15 in their believing, some at verse 16 but if it really is the Word of God, God wants us to believe it all, right up to the end of verse 20.

Will there be a Secret Rapture of the Church?

"Then the seventh angel sounded [the trumpet]: And there were loud
voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms
of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

(Revelations 11:15)

Training Believers to Do the Healing Ministry

Shows the Scriptural promises and expectations of Christ relating to this ministry and answers the objections Christians have to the idea of training believers to do the ministry of divine healing.

Bible Meditations on Soul-Winning

Jesus as a soul-winner

For the Son of Man has come to seek and save that which was lost. (Lk 19:10)

He who says he abides in Him [in Jesus] ought himself also to walk just as He walked. (1 Jn 2:6)

Do you not know yourselves – that Jesus Christ is in you? – unless indeed you are disqualified. (2Cor 13:5)

The Instructions to Go regularly and often

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mk 16:15)

Sing to the Lord, bless His name; proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. (Ps.
