Pentecost Message

Just in time for Pentecost!  The very popular Biblical Sabbath and Calendar book has now been expanded so much that it has been divided into two books!  The first book is “Personal Salvation,”  but don’t be confused by that title; the book is about much more than repentance and baptism.  This book includes studies in […]

Biblical Philadelphian Love

There is enormous talk about brotherly love and the “Philadelphian Christian” in the assemblies.  It is important to have a good understanding of the subject of love and the meaning of Philadelphian love as we examine ourselves before Passover.  Regardless of all the hair splitting over the meaning of words like Agape Love,  if we […]

The Flat Earth

Is The Earth Flat?  Today we begin the new studies through Genesis and Exodus at The School of Biblical Studies site.  I have recently received some inquires as to my position on the flat earth idea and since Genesis 1 begins the book of Genesis with the  Creation Week,  I thought that this was a […]

Proverbs 22:6 says:“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.

The Work of the Ekklesia

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.” (1 Corinthians 3:9)   Paul told the brethren in Corinth that they were all laborers together with God and that they were God’s husbandry. The Greek word for husbandry meaning, the produce of a cultivated field, and that they were […]

Discernment

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Great is God’s Faithfulness

God is a faithful God!  We are told of His faithfulness in very many places in Scripture. One of my favorite turn-to’s when facing challenges is in Lamentations 3. Lamentations 3:22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 3:23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. God in His […]
