Biblical faith is not centered around talk. Biblical faith is demonstrated by one's actions. Believing God is not mere "god talk." Believing (initial belief and then subsiquent growth in that belief) God is walking by faith (pisticism) (ordering one's steps) and not by sight (empiricism). The just (those declared righteous by their actions of faith…
 
The world is "proud" of rational discursive reason. The world believes that all things are discoverable and understood by the human mind and its ability to create credible theories for natural phenomena. The world has shut the door on supernatural phenomena because it threatens agreed upon social narrative. The world does not acknowledge that its n…
 
"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions (dwellings): if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare place for you. And if (since) I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also (John 14:1-3)."…
 
The world has exposed some of its terrible ills to us. Looting and burning lives to the ground is looked upon as something positive and redemptive. The saviours of this age are filled with hate, lust, and insaitable greed. Yet, they want want people to believe their venom-filled lies. Some of them want to re-write the Bible to fit their schemes. Li…
 
Look around you today and what do you see? You see a world in chaos and ruin. People are hurting and smarting from the deliberate wounds selfishly inflicted by those in power. The world is big enough and wealthy enough to sustain and prosper all of humanity. The world is a living organism. It is a dynamic being created by God. The rulers of this pr…
 
Bible bashing is not unique to the people of the cosmic system. There are professing believers who bash the Truth of the Word of God by their actions. Jesus said: "By their fruit you shall know them." The false prophets want us to listen to their deceiving words and not watch their nefarious actions. They use either hypnosis or spells to "trick" th…
 
The social engineers manipulate people to their own evil ends. People today are driven, weary and without hope. The dark leaders of the cosmos world system promise people the "good" life but in the end there is nothing. Jesus promises that those who build their lives upon the solid rock of His Word will have lives of superabundance.…
 
Job was not a victim. He never thought of himself as a victim. He was a man of God. He was tested by God through the instrumentality of the satan. Job's friends were not privy to the divine council that decided the parameters of his trials. They assumed that that knew the reason of his trials. Carefully note they never prayed for Job. They pelted h…
 
Racist Ideologies are demonic. The goal of racist ideology is to create a psycho-spiritual split within the soul. It is spiritual schizophrenia. The devil is the author of this species of self-hate and hatred toward toward others. The one who hates is filled with spiritual poison. Such a person is brain-washed to think that hate will fill the soul …
 
There are those who want to destroy the lives of those who do not share their skin color. There were those who attempted to destroy the lives of the people of Yahweh in the Book of Exodus and Yahweh led them out of that oppressive and destructive bondage. The satan is the god of this age and he is destroying humanity through the cultural lie of rac…
 
The world of psychology and therapy likes to talk about evidence-based practices and their effectiveness in helping to solve the problems of living. The Biblical documents do not speak of human psychology as a panacea for the problems of living. The Word of God does not rely upon human theories nor observational studies about the human condition. T…
 
Jesus said that in the cosmos we would suffer tribulation. It is important to note that he said these poignant words in the Upper Room to his disciples. He wanted them to know the cost of discipleship. Jesus proclaimed no cheap Grace. Jesus is the Grace of God Incarnate. There is nothing cheap about Jesus. Jesus has been attacked by so-called schol…
 
What did the Church cost God? What did God sacrifice in order to redeem us? God so loved the world (people) that He gave is only begotten Son. The Church is the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Head of the Body that He purchased with His own Blood. The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross is the central theme of the Bible. Biblical History point…
 
We are living in the Eschaton or Last Days of this age. Knowledge has been increased as foretold by Daniel. Invasive technologies have redefined what it means to be human. The classical idea of man as man has vanished along with classical moral norms. Moral relativism is the order of the day as espoused by the social controllers. They themselves op…
 
Predestination and Foreknowledge are very profound and poignant theological doctrines. All constantly believing ones must know that God has determined the end of history because history is HIS-STORY! Men have tried to fathom the reality of history without God and therefore have missed the real meaning of history. The language of the New Testament l…
 
Jesu laid out the ultimate antithesis for all of us. Jesus laid before each of us the ultimate demand. The demand to take up the cross and follow Jesus is not for the religious or the faint of heart. It take extraordinary courage to follow Jesusand mean it. He brooks no rivals. He will never accept any rivals! He and He alone must beour ultimate co…
 
Those who have tried to disavow the claims of the Scriptures concerning the person of Jesus over the centuries have failed. Many have tried to say that Jesus is not who He claims to be have found themselves personally victimized by their own claims. Others, who are less honest have completely ignored the Scriptures and have sought to echo the faile…
 
Have you even thought about why children are attacked through sexual abuse? Have you ever talked to an adult who was sexually abused as a child? Do you realize the thousands upon thousands of victims of childhood sexual abuse that live among us? The devil has sought to destroy the lives of children because they are beautiful creations of God. The d…
 
God speaks extensively in His Word about the ruin that false prophets bring into the lives of His people. False (lying) prophets are extremely selfish and arrogant. They will use words in a carefully contrived manner in order to deceive and control people. They do not care that their lies are against the people of God. However, God will havoc the l…
 
Our Lord Jesus Christ warned us about false prophets who come only to deceive and lead the faithful astray. John warns us about deceiving spirits. Peter warns us about false prophets who will be manifest in the last days. Throughout the Word of God we are warned not to listen to the putrid words of those who lie in wait to deceive, and overthrow th…
 
The dark forces of this world know the value of the Word of God. The powers of darkness know that the only Light in this world is Jesus. Therefore they seek to extinguish the Light (Phos) of Jesus. The powers of darkness cannot overcome the Light of the Cosmos. If you want a real life and a not a life of illusion come to Jesus. This world is filled…
 
The Word of God teaches the necessity of the finished work of Jesus in order to redeem (purchase) us out from sin. Sin is lack or want of conformity the character of God. Jesus died for all of mankind. It is only through the death of Jesus that we can receive eternal life. Jesus offers the only way (road) to freedom in this world (cosmos).…
 
Faith is a noun of action. Faith is never a mere intellectual idea in the Word of God. It is for many people but not those who follow Jesus. To follow Jesus means that one forsakes his own existence and take up the cross with the idea of never putting it down. We follow Jesus by faith (Gk. pisticism). When we follow Jesus we walk by faith not by si…
 
Very few cosmic psychology books address the malignant spiritual pathology of pride. Pride is inherent in the human heart and its institutions. Pride is more that morbid self-interent. Pride is more that pathology. It is an ontological way of being for humanity dead in trespasses and sins. It is only through the death, burial and resurrection of Je…
 
Noah believed that Yahweh was going to bring a global flood upon the earth. Abraham believed God and it was counted to him for righteousness. Joseph believed God and he became prime minister of Egypt. Moses believed God and he delivered God's people for Egyptian bondage. The powerful theme of the Scriptures is unshakeable belief in the character of…
 
Habakkuk was a prophet who carried a heavy burden. He carefully observed the behavior of the wicked and he wanted to know why Yahweh had not judged their terrible behavior. He observed that the wicked surrounded the righteous in order to strangle and curtail justice. The wicked proved themselves incredibly selfish and determined to do everything in…
 
In old days some theologues spoke glowing words about the universal salvation of all men. Rarely does one read such things today. In the recent old days "christian" counselors spoke about the unity of biblical doctrines with human psychology. I have such books in my library. Such people took the proverbial bait. They were deceived by the cosmos int…
 
The question about eternal life posed by the rich young ruler manifests the essence of human self-interest. The rich young ruler assumed that he only needed to complete a formulaic religious ritual in order to receive eternal life. The encounter with Jesus arrested the hidden arrogance of his self-interest and confronted him with deepest assumption…
 
Will you be there when the glorified church will meet the Lord Jesus in the air? Have you believed into the person of Jesus? I dont mean do you go to "church." I mean have you believed into the person of Jesus for eternal salvation? You, and only you can answer this vitally important question. Now is the accepted time, now is the Day of Salvation. …
 
This age(aeon) will end with the Tribulation Period. The Tribulation Period marks the end of the so-called Church Age. Peter even writes that judgement will begin at the House of God. This is remarkable because he cogently comtemplates the destiny of the ungodly who know not God. The Tribulation Period will begin with the falling away first of the …
 
The Book of Revelation is the Book of Beginning too. What had been lost through the deceitfulness of sin has been overthrown by the Almighty God. The enemy (hater) of humanity will meet his eternal defeat by Almighty God whom he sought to supplant, and later mimic by claiming the perogatives of Deity for himself-a created being. All of creation is …
 
The distraction of trouble is upon us. It seeks to create fear in our hearts. Fear seeks to isolate us. Fear wants you to be intimidated. If fears wins your heart will be unsettled and ill at peace. If fear wins it will seize your profession of faith and imprison you in candid spiritual defeat. The Savior wants us to concentrate upon Him so that we…
 
Pauline Theology presents the reality of the finished work of Christ. Paul preached Christ crucified, and nothing else. Paul's self-understanding as a self-righteous pharisee was exploded by the Living Christ himself. Paul called everything that he had accomplished outside of Jesus "dung." Paul's greatest desire was to have a deep awareness of Jesu…
 
The Word of God demands that believing ones are faithful in doing the will of God. The history makers in the Word of God knew this to be true. Faith is demonstrated in the Bible by what one does not by what one says. We must be ever watchful of our actions. We dare not mouth obedience without appropriate actions as evidence of our confession. God b…
 
The cross of Jesus is still relevant. The cross of Jesus is the focus of history. Those who would escape from live ruined by sin must come to Jesus. The world only offers distractions and lies. The world offers only the pleasures of the flesh with the illusion of satisfaction. Only when one comes to Jesus will one find a real life. One must look to…
 
The Word of God has provided sufficient prophetic messages so that the church may be edified by thing to come. It is important that believing ones are Spirit-filled in these days. It is important the believing ones be well grounded in the Truth of the Word because planned confusion is afoot. People are brain-washed, manipulated, frightened, lied to…
