Adam

In Genesis 3 we find the record of the fall of man. It is my purpose to make observations in this post – not to develop a deep theological thread. However, as I have meditated on these thoughts today some important issues have arisen in my mind, regarding Adam; both of them. The serpent, more […]

Seeing God

There is a view of God that we have lost in the church in our generation: the high, exalted, lofty, exclusive, unparalleled, unprecedented character of God. Preferring the comfort of His nearness, we have lost the reality of God’s transcendent holiness. Our generation struggles and wallows in cheap grace and shallow sanctification because we have […]

To the broken. . . .

You are my Shield, my Defender and in you I hide. My flesh is corrupt and my bones are broken, but you are my Rock and my Fortress a Refuge to Whom I will run for safety. My insides are dried up, but You are a Fountain of Living Water and I draw deeply that […]

Choosing

Whatever the circumstance; regardless of the challenge or threat, as a Christ follower my greatest responsibility is to respond in a manner which brings to Christ glory. My response cannot be one of self- preservation or personal gain- but only to honor to Him. The Word of God declares, “he who honors me I will […]

Fixing Things

One of my favorite stories seems to bear repeating today. A lady became quite angry with her pastor. I don’t remember what it was about at the time, but she was quite angry and felt equally as justified in her anger.¬† In her anger, she started a vicious rumor about the man that quickly spread […]

Out of Season

“Why should not my face be sad, when the city, the place of my father’s graves lies in ruins and its gates have been destroyed by fire?” Nehemiah 2:3 ¬†Nehemiah and his brethren were heavy of heart because of the condition of Jerusalem; and appropriately so. The city of their joy lay in ruins and […]

“Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but profuse the kisses of an enemy.” Proverbs 27:6 It fell upon my shoulders today to speak words to a friend that are very hurtful. I am sitting here in the quiet of my study weeping for my friend; yet, perhaps weeping for myself as well for the […]

A Tent of Meeting

“Now Moses used to take the tent and pitch it outside the camp, far off from the camp, and he called it the tent of meeting. And everyone who sought the LORD would go out to the tent of meeting, which was outside the camp” Exodus 33:7 O God, my God, it is this I […]

Ranking the Character of God

I have been carefully instructed once again that stodgy and rigid Scribes and Pharisees, bound in the chains of religion and not yet liberated by the New Grace continually seek to control men by outdated and not-prophetically revealed truth. Case in point: God’s character of LOVE is to be more highly regarded than God’s TRUTH. […]

In Defense of Systematic Family Worship

That we should conduct regular worship in our home, in a formal and systematic setting is clear from the scriptures as the servants of God have practiced it. You can scarcely name a Biblical patriarch, but he has set up an altar for his family, and offered spiritual sacrifices upon it. Joshua resolves upon this, […]
