The Immortal Message of Easter

On Easter morn, we are drawn back to the message of the Cross that all-encompassing will of God. We are catapulted beyond the simple historical message of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection to the infinite heights of God’s will for our life in Christ Jesus. If we only see the historical event steeped in tradition then we have missed the message. In the Apostle Paul’s farewell message to the Ephesian elders he declared, “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God” (Acts 20:27). And the starting place in this wonderful journey in understanding the whole will of God is by following the admonition of Christ to pick up our cross and follow Him. The Bible says, “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me” (Luke 9:23). To pick up the cross means death. It simply cannot mean anything else. It is a conscious decision to follow Christ in His death by dying to self. As we enter the dark night of our soul we discover that everything of the old sin nature must die. Every vestige of pride must be nailed to the cross. Every glimmer of self-will must die with Christ. Through faith in Christ our death to self becomes a reality. Step by step we are able to put off the old life. Continue reading The Immortal Message of Easter

The Crucible of Brotherly Love

We all know that the hallmark of true Christianity is love. Love for God and love for our fellow man and especially for our brother or sister in Christ. Jesus Christ was our greatest example of this kind of love. He fought against the vicious wolves of His day who were destroying the sheep with their human traditions and false doctrine. He stood toe to toe with them not to win an argument, but to protect those who were put into His care by the Heavenly Father. For the sake of the sheep He confronted the blind guides, He argued against the established order, and exposed their dangerous doctrines that kept people in bondage to their human traditions. His love was so great that He healed the sick, cured horrible diseases, made whole the lame, restored eyesight to the blind, and drove out demons that were holding people in bondage. His love was so great for all of His followers that He spent many hours every day teaching the truth about life and liberty. Not only did He want to restore the broken bodies and free their minds from their enslavement to the devil, but He also wanted them to experience the new life – a bountiful life free from anxiety and the stresses of everyday life. Finally, He paid the ultimate price by offering His life as an atoning sacrifice for all those who believe. His love did not stop there, but He made good on His promise to send the Comforter to lead His followers into all truth by reminding them of all that He taught them concerning the new life.  He counted the cost and fulfilled His mission.

A Political Post

I call on all Christians and well-meaning, principled people to take action. The nation is going off the cliff. It’s headed into the abyss. For those who are biblically knowledgeable the West and specifically the United States of America are fast becoming Babylon and liken to the ancient Sodom and Gomorrah. The hand of God has already begun to reign His wrath down on an unrepentant world. This can already be seen in extreme weather patterns, increase in earthquakes, volcanos, incurable diseases, rank lawlessness and unethical people seeking the highest political office in the land. Therefore, after much prayer and meditation I have finally been given liberty to write the following article. As a free citizen of the United States I will exercise my freedom of speech to open the eyes of the blind and hopefully give courage to those who feel hopeless to bring about any real change to the world and to the United States in particular. George Washington apply said, “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent will be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” And I for one will not be led like a sheep to the slaughter without letting my voice be heard throughout this nation and around the world. I call upon all reading these words to help me broadcast them to the world. Continue reading A Political Post
