THE LAW OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (CHRIST)
Our study text is taken from Lev 3:6-8 which says, “And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering unto the LORD be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it without blemish. 7 If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it before the LORD. 8 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron's sons shall sprinkle the blood thereof round about upon the altar”.
From our study text if someone wants to be righteous or make peace with the Lord, th
HAVE YOU SOLD YOUR BIRTHRIGHT?
Our reading is taken from Gen 25:30-33 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. 31 And Jacob said; sell me this day thy birthright. 32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
This reading is telling us how Esau lost his birthright to Jacob the younger brother just to fill his stomach. One may ask why Jacob required h
Have you ever wondered why there are so many people out there preaching Gods word and expecting to receive a fortune from those who have just received their sermon? I could mention many of them by name but what difference would it make to those who prefer to live in someone else’s fairy tale.
The reason why millions of people choose to live in another’s fairy tale is easy to explain. Satan has manipulated and deceived them into believing that someone else’s fairy tale is the truth they want to hear. Why is this so hard for people to accept? Satan knows just how gulli
Preguntemos a aquellos que no poseen nada más que la membrecía de una iglesia, y que a pesar de ello desean llamarse cristianos, ¿cómo pueden glorificar el sagrado nombre de Cristo? Únicamente aquel que ha recibido el verdadero conocimiento de DIOS por medio de la Palabra del Evangelio puede llegar a tener comunión con Cristo. El Apóstol dice que nadie que no ha puesto de lado la vieja naturaleza con su corrupción y sus concupiscencias puede decir que ha recibido el verdadero conocimiento de Cristo. El conocimiento externo de Cristo es s&
La escritura no enseña solamente el principio de la santidad, sino que también nos dice que Cristo es el camino a este principio. Puesto que el Padre nos ha reconciliado consigo mismo por medio de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, nos ordena que seamos conformados a su imagen. A aquellos que piensan que los filósofos tienen un sistema mejor de conducta, le pediría que nos muestren un plan más excelente que obedecer y seguir a nuestro Señor Jesucristo. La virtud más sublime de acuerdo a los filósofos es vivir la vida de la naturaleza, pero
A BELIEVER IN THE GATHERING OF UNBELIEVERS
Our bible reading is taken from the book of Proverbs 29:9 which states, “If a wise man contend with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest”.
Believers, I have come to realize that many of us after accepting the Gospel of the Water and the Spirit are still attending churches founded by human doctrines. It is not a bad thing associating ourselves with family and friends. But it is dangerous if our views and expressions are not accepted in their gatherings.
Our study text is saying that there is no happiness
How many of you have ever wondered about why Abraham thought he could appeal to God, asking Him to spare Sodom & Gomorrah if there were just fifty righteous men in the cities?
Way too many worldly Christians and their teachers through their lack of knowledge, truly believe that it was only “righteous Lot” who was living there vexing his soul among all those vulgarly wicked and profane sodomites. But do you honestly believe that Lot would have lived there alone if there were no other professing believers also living there? When Ezekiel was sent to reprove Israel, God declared
CLIMBING TO THE HEIGHT OF GOD’S HOLINESS
Our reading is taken from the book of Luke 19:1-4.
Luke 19:1-4. And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
From our study text, Zacchaeus could not press through the crowd to see Jesus because of his height. Height here means sin. Therefore
YOU HAVE BEEN LIFTED UP FROM SIN
Our Scripture reading is taken from the Epistle of the 1st Book of Peter where it says:
“By whom also He went and PREACHED to the spirits in prison, who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ARK was being prepared, in which A FEW, that is eight souls, were SAVED through WATER” (1 Peter 3:19-20).
We thank God that through His Word we do not lose heart. And even though our outward man is perishing, our inward man (spirit and soul) is renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16). W
HONEY IN THE CARCASS OF THE LION (LAW)
Our study for today will be based on Judges 14:8 which reads, “And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcass of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcass of the lion”.
However, I will want us to start the study by discussing Judges 14:5-6 before considering our main verse above.
Judges 14:5-6 reads, Then went Samson down, and his father and his mother, to Timnath, and came to the vineyards of Timnath: and, behold, a young lion roared against him. 6 And the Spirit
