Proverbs
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

Proverbs 3:5

The Word
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Remember

04.22.10 J.A. Matteson “Because You have been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.” Psalms 63:7

The capacity to remember the Lord’s grace in days past informs our perspective regarding present circumstances. The tendency of the fallen nature is to forget the mercies of the Lord that have sustained and nurtured our sanctification thus far. If it was not for the grace of the Lord we would be consumed in an instant by unrelenting terrors and innumerable perils.

In this delightful Psalm David reflects back on the Lord’s goodness in the midst of present distress, carefully chronicling in his mind past evidences of divine blessing. The resultant outcome is joy in the midst of present adversity, a joy firmly established by a gift of God; viz., the grace of a heavenly perspective. David chooses his words thoughtfully when he proclaims, “…You have been my [Continue reading…]

The Parable of the Virgins: Being Ready.

These are the notes from a message spoken on Sunday 30th November, 2009. The parable of the foolish and wise virgins was explored to reveal the true state of the church today, and the part believers have to play, both individually and corporately, to defend and contend for the Truth of God’s Word, and the authenticity of His indwelling Holy Spirit in our lives.

Matthew 25:1-13 1  “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2  Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3  Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them, 4  but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5  But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6  “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom [Continue reading…]

15 Questions For Evolutionists – #9

Why are the (expected) countless millions of transitional fossils missing? Darwin noted the problem and it still remains. The evolutionary family trees in textbooks are based on imagination, not fossil evidence. Famous Harvard paleontologist (and evolutionist), Stephen Jay Gould, wrote, “The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology”.1 Other evolutionist fossil experts also acknowledge the problem. See: creation.com/pattquote.

Abandoned by God?

This is a stark message spoken by John MacArthur. Although addressed to the nation of America, it could just as easily be addressed to the U.K. too, and probably most other nations of the world.

Nothing But The Truth

Biblical Christianity is all about truth. God’s objective revelation (the Bible) interpreted rationally yields divine truth in perfectly sufficient measure. Everything we need to know for life and godliness is there for us in Scripture (2 Peter 1:3). God wrote only one book — the Bible. It contains all the truth God intended us to order our spiritual lives by. We don’t need to consult any other source for spiritual or moral principles to govern our lives. Scripture is not only wholly truth; it is also the highest standard of all truth – the rule by which all truth claims must be measured.

Such a conviction is the very antithesis of the post modern notion that no one should ever claim to know objective truth. And that is another major reason why Christianity has been targeted by the proponents of post modern inclusivism.

Authentic Christianity is “the faith which [Continue reading…]

Longing After God

My dear Lord,

I can but tell Thee that Thou knowest I long for nothing but Thyself, nothing but holiness, nothing but union with Thy will.

Thou hast given me these desires, and thou alone canst give me the thing desired.

My soul longs for communion with Thee, for mortification of indwelling corruption, especially spiritual pride.

How precious it is to have a tender sense and clear apprehension of the mystery of godliness, of true holiness!

What a blessedness to be like Thee as much as it is possible for a creature to be like its creator!

Lord, give me more of Thy likeness; enlarge my soul to contain fullness of holiness; engage me to live more for Thee.

Help me to be less pleased with my spiritual experiences, and when I feel at ease after sweet communings, teach me it is far too little I know and do.
