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.

Responding To The Spirit

Responding To The Spirit Quench not the Spirit. Hold fast that which is good.1 Thessalonians 5:19, 21 Are we raising a whole generation of young men and women without any sensitivity to the voice of God’s Holy Spirit? I am on record, and I will be as long as I live, that I would rather…

Revival-And Renewal

Revival-And Renewal Though our outward man perish yet the inward man is renewed day by day.2 Corinthians 4:16 I hope some of you will agree with me that it is of far greater importance that we have better Christians than that we have more of them! If we have any spiritual concerns, our most pressing…

How Do We Listen?

How Do We Listen? I will hear what God the Lord will speak . . . peace unto his people. Psalm 85:8 The living God has spoken to lost mankind in a variety of ways. The general response among us has been, “We did not hear His voice. We did not hear anything.”  John recorded in…

Confess Christ’s Lordship

On Being Different The Church’s mightiest influence is felt when she is different from the world in which she lives. Her power lies in her being different, rises with the degree in which she differs and sinks as the difference diminishes. This is so fully and clearly taught in the Scriptures and so well illustrated…

The Ethics Of Jesus

The Ethics Of Jesus And ye shall be witnesses unto me. Acts 1:8 The teachings of Jesus belong to the Church, not to society, for in society is sin, and sin is hostility to God! Christ did not teach that He would impose His teachings upon the fallen world. He called His disciples to Him and…

The Need for Reverence

The Need for Reverence Many persons who have been raised in our churches no longer think in terms of reverence, which seems to indicate that they doubt God’s presence is there. Much of the blame must be placed on the growing acceptance of a worldly secularism that seems much more appealing than any real desire…

A Birth From Above

A Birth From Above Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.John 3:7 This may sound like heresy in some quarters, but I have come to this conclusion—that there are far too many among us who have thought that they accepted Christ, but nothing has come of it within their own lives…
