Confessing And Repenting
Is there any connection between confessing sin and repenting of it?
In 1 John 1:9 (ESV) Christians are told, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins ..." So, when we confess our sins we are forgiven but what does it mean to confess? Many…Continue

(2 Thess. 2:4)
The Bible tells us that one day a man, called the Antichrist, will appear in the Temple (yet to be built) and declare himself to be God. 2 Thess.…Continue

The Two Wolves
"I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.
Now choose life." (Deu. 30:19)

"God is love." (1 John 4:16)
As we look at the evil in this sin-sick world it is easy to see why non-believers say that God cannot be a God of love. It's hard to find words to describe how low mankind has sunk and, despite all the empty talk, things are only going to get worse until Jesus…

You Don't Have To Take It Any More
"Sin shall not be your master." (Rom. 6:14)
I don't think that there can be greater heartache than knowing Jesus and yet still be a slave to sin. It's common knowledge that there are many churchgoers secretly addicted to pornography, alcohol, drugs and other sins.…Continue

Many believers have very little to do with God outside of their time in church on Sunday morning. Very few churchgoers seem to have a good understanding of scripture and, in fact, not many even take their Bible to church so the preacher can tell them almost anything and they will nod their heads. After the service, it is often…Continue

Dean had a stroke 5 years ago and now has broken his hip. He had a bronchitus and had a terrible cough but now his stomach is giving lot of pain with bloating. He has trouble eatting because of that. Thank you for your prayers! Dean's cough is better. God worked in wonderful ways. He needs intense therapy because he is so weak. Our insurance would not take Dean to Roger C Peace. God worked on the heart of the doctor and he got Dean a placement at the hospital treatment center. but We…Continue

Today, much is said about the love of God but very little is heard about His righteousness and justice. No one doubts the great love God has shown us through Jesus nor the love He pours into our lives each day but so little is said about the fact that, at the Judgement, God is going to pour out His wrath on all who continued in sin. For…

II Peter 3:3-4” Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last
days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is
the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things
continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” (KJV)
Where is the scoffer - when death comes to call?
There’s no peace of heart - for fear of their…Continue

I Shall Not Want
By Rev. Dean Beaty 7/27/12
Psalm 23:3 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (KJV)
“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
Notice it’s written in a big bold font.
Though God has promised to meet our need,
There’s no such promise to meet our greed.
The lack of contentment can cause us to sin.
It leads to the heart of a rebel within.
When we’re not content, were not…Continue

Nothing In My Hand

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (KJV)
Nothing in my hand I bring
For salvation to my King.
Jesus Christ has paid it all
And it is mine if I but call.
All the righteousness I brag
Is to God a filthy…Continue

Hebrews 9:27-28 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die,
but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear
the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear
the second time without sin unto salvation.” (KJV)
Men don’t believe in judgment, so in sin they stay content.
They don’t believe God’s Word or that was what He meant.
They have a…Continue
