Iraq And The Millennial Kingdom

The Future of Iraq Imagine, if you will, a highway that connects Baghdad with Cairo and Jerusalem; a highway without tolls and borders! Imagine Israel leading the world in religious observance, without rivalry from any nation on earth. People could spend their money on personal and social projects, without a dime going toward defense! A dream, you say? No, not a dream, but a future reality predicted by Isaiah the prophet. As you read his predictions, keep in mind that much of present-day Iraq is the ancient land of Assyria: “In that day there will be a highway from Egypt … Read More >

What Entertains You?

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life” (Proverbs 4:23, ESV). What Entertains Us? A recent article in the Chicago Tribune uncovered what I believe to be the most serious threat to the Christian Home. The headline read, “Media Options Swamp Nation.” The bottom line is that the average American spends 9.6 hours a day inhaling media: watching television, going to the movies and surfing the Internet. Two months of every year are spent just watching TV; we have 392 cable channels to choose from and 40,000 DVD titles. We … Read More >

Freedom From Sexual Sin

Sadly, some believers sincerely question whether or not viewing pornography is wrong at all. But the Scriptures are blunt (Matthew 5:28; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 1 John 2:16; Philippians 4:8; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6). God’s standard is purity of heart, for such shall see God (Matthew 5:8). The only way to find freedom from sexual bondage is by utilizing the resources that God has given us—the Word and the Church. We believe that although one can fall into the trap of pornography without any help, we cannot come out of this unclean practice … Read More >

The Authority Of The Holy Scriptures

But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; and that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures … Read More >

The Woman And The Dragon

They overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.”—Revelation 12:11 Notes of a message given by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, December 19, 1954. Amidst the world-struggle for survival, it is important that we should understand the real nature of the battle in which we, as Christians, are engaged. Paul said in Ephesians 6:12, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” I am not sure … Read More >

A Nervous Peace In The Middle East

We can be grateful that the 33-day war between Lebanon and Israel is over and that a peace-keeping force will be installed to prevent a repeat of the hostilities we witnessed just months ago. But unfortunately, we can be quite sure that conflicts will erupt in the Middle East again, somewhere and at some time. I might be a pessimist, but I don’t believe that a permanent peace is possible in Israel. The basic roots of the conflict go back to A.D. 638 when the Muslim caliph Omar captured Jerusalem, beginning a 450-year period of Muslim rule over the … Read More >

Angels We Have Heard On High

The Holy Angels of Christmas An angel appeared to Mary; three times an angel spoke to Joseph and angels communicated the message of Jesus’ birth to the shepherds. Obviously, these heavenly beings did not disappear after the first century! Even those of us who have never seen an angel most probably have been helped by them since they are “ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation” (Hebrews 1:14). There was a time when those who believed in angels were thought of as misguided souls who existed on the fringe of … Read More >

Divorce And Remarriage

The Bible not only presents divine ideals but also sin-caused realities. In the Old Testament, divorce and remarriage were permitted under specific regulations. The question is whether or not any of these guidelines are applicable today within the context of the New Testament. Two instances demonstrate that divorce can, under certain conditions, be considered scriptural today.  1. When One Partner Develops a Pattern of Sexual Immorality Christ said, “And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, (fornication) and marries another, commits adultery” (Matthew 19:9).  Several observations should be noted: (1) A spouse … Read More >

The King Is Coming

The King is Coming and We’ll be there for His Return! At this time of year we look back to the manger, to the first appearance of the Son of God as man born of a woman, God in the flesh. But even as we look back, we should also look forward to His bodily return, when He will come a second time to bring us our ultimate salvation. Please keep in mind that the physical Jesus who was laid in a manger as a baby, and who walked the earth as a man, is the same physical Jesus who … Read More >

The Called Of Jesus Christ

Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ” (Romans 1:6). When something is important, it has many words attached to it. Just think of the thousands of words attached to the automobile industry, for example, or to the music trade. A hi-fi addict has a vocabulary all his own, and that vocabulary is important to him. Even a hunter or a fisherman will have words and terms that are meaningful only to his crowd. God’s people are important to God; and because they are important, He has many names for them. Sometimes He simply calls us “children … Read More >
