Pearls of Wisdom

Read about what God is saying to His people in these last days. Let Him stir your heart and challenge you to live according to His will.

Remembering the Forgotten

Gospel churches which mostly begin with the lowly are usually not content till they attain some degree of wealth and social acceptance. Then they gradually fall into classes, determined largely by the wealth and education of the members. The individuals that comprise the top layer of these various classes go on to become pillars of…

The World Is Scared

Look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28 A fear-stricken church cannot help a scared world; and it needs to be said that surely a fear-ridden Christian has never examined his or her defense! No one can blame humans for being afraid. Beyond the continuing times of crisis and…

O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.

Romans 14:18 Many believers in our day seem to consider the expression of true Christian holiness to be just a matter of personal option: “I have looked it over and considered it, but I don’t buy it!” But the Apostle…

Confidence In God

If our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 1 John 3:21 This is surely one of the great realizations that can come to us in the Christian life—we can put our complete confidence in the God who has revealed Himself to us! It was a gracious day in my early Christian…

God Is Indeed There

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. John 1:1–2 The teaching of the New Testament is that God created the world by the Logos, the Word, and the Word is identified with the second Person of the Godhead…

Courageous Prayer

In a world like ours, courage is an indispensable virtue. The coward may snivel in his corner, but the brave man takes the prize. And in the kingdom of God, courage is as necessary as it is in the world. The timid soul is as pitiable on his knees as he is in society. When…
