    Christ Our Passover

    Christ Our Passover “For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.” —1 Corinthians 5:7 The more you read the Bible, and the more you meditate upon it, the more you will be astonished with it. He who is but a casual reader of the Bible, does not know the height, the depth, the length and breadth of the mighty meanings contained in its pages. There are certain times when I discover a new vein of thought, and I put my hand to my head and say in astonishment, “Oh, it is wonderful I never saw this before in the Scriptures.” You will find the Scriptures enlarge as you enter…

    The Deity of Christ

    The Deity of Christ Since the Deity of Christ is such a fundamental and foundational doctrine of Biblical Christianity and essential to our salvation, I felt it was very important to include this study on Earnestly Contending. It all boils down to one of two options: Either Jesus Christ is God or He is not.

    Bread Enough And To Spare

    Bread Enough And To Spare C.H. Spurgeon “And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!” Luke 15:17. “He came to himself.” The word may be applied to one waking out of a deep swoon. He had been unconscious of his true condition, and he had lost all power to deliver himself from it; but now he was coming round again, returning to consciousness and action. The voice which shall awaken the dead aroused him; the visions of his sinful trance all disappeared; his foul but fascinating dreams were gone; he came to…

    Name Dropping and Man Praising

    Name Dropping and Man Praising By Buddy Smith Brother Joe was one of a kind. He only ever pastored one church. It was the church he started when he moved to a town near us in 1939. He never received a salary from his church. He said he would simply trust God for his needs to be met, and he did, and they were. He never asked for anything, but God heard his prayers and blessed his faith, and he never did without. He taught all the way through the Bible at least three times in a pastorate that lasted more than fifty years. He preached on the radio everyday…

    Our Leader Through The Darkness

    Our Leader Through The Darkness Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God. ” Isaiah 50:10. Behold I have given him for …. a leader. ” Isaiah 55:4.

We sometimes see him better in the dark then in the light. If you will go outside in the daytime and look up,…

    A Sermon For The Time Present

    A Sermon For The Time Present C. H. SPURGEON “In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was a burden.” Zephaniah 3:16-18.

    Bible Versions – Does It Matter?

    Bible Versions – Does It Matter? I have been comparing Bible versions and it is amazing how much deception is out there. I can see where the United Church Moderator gets his beliefs from – straight out of the NIV Bible without even twisting the text. The NASV and NRSV are just as corrupt. I believed that the NASV was the most accurate version, but the Lord opened my eyes in 1997. Some friends challenged me to compare these modern versions verse by verse (and word by word) with the King James Bible. So I did and I was shocked at all the changes and omissions (there are over 64,000…

    How I Know The King James Bible is the Word of God

    How I Know The King James Bible is the Word of God Copyright © 1997 James L. Melton Published by Bible Baptist Church, Sharon, TN There are many good works that one can read on the authority of the King James Bible, and this particular effort offers nothing really new. However, it does attempt to explain the issue in a simple and brief manner for all to understand. Over the years I have learned a great deal about this issue, and I believe that a truth worth learning is a truth worth telling.

    NIV Bible Test

    NIV Bible Test It has been said by many that the NIV is the most readable and accurate Bible on the market today and that it is based on older and more reliable manuscripts than the King James Bible. In regard to the above statements an “acid test” is the only fair way to put the NIV and the KJV “to the test” as one might say… so get out you NIV, a pen and when you have completed the test I encourage you to then take a KJV and see the result…
