“The wayward child and the self-willed youth is guided by his own unsanctified and unsubdued spirit. The man of the world is controlled by “the spirit of the world.” The wicked are governed by Satan “the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2). But the Christian is to yield himself unto … Continue reading Gauging Inward Impulses
“Death blows away all vain deceits. Then carnal men begin to perceive their error. When their portion comes to be taken away from them, then what indignation they have upon themselves for the folly of their choice, how the world has deceived them! A godly man hath the beginning here; then he comes to have … Continue reading Choose God for Your Portion
“The chief danger of the Church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world, instead of turning the world upside down. Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict. Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis. God give to us an … Continue reading We Must Turn the World Upside Down!
I paint on the side and use my skills to express my world through eyes that are color-blind. I used to think that it was quite unfair that God made me color-blind, but now I see it as a benefit, instead of a hinderance. Yes, color matching is hard sometimes, but with painting, it means my … Continue reading My Paintings Page
" 'He is my portion forever' (Psalm 73:26). The good things of this life are but like flowers: they be for a season, and then they wither: they are perishing, and of a short continuance. We carry away nothing of it in our hands, when we go to the grave. When we leave all other … Continue reading My Portion Forever
Great article, and well worth the read.
“I sought the Lord and He answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to Him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed” – Psalm 34:4-5.
ONE OF THE prime hallmarks of great leaders throughout the history of the body of Christ was such oneness with God that they didn’t exist for the approval of people – something that riddles our day and age and plagues countless of people throughout evangelical Christendom.
What made such men the men that they were? It was a sharp and somewhat long education and it was learned in no college, university or conference; it was learned alone in the desert, a time where great loneliness was felt until God was found and what is meant by that is to know Him anew Who fills those places in our hearts where only He has the right to satisfy.

I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. When the disciples heard this, they were greatly … Continue reading Why God Doesn’t Save The Rich
So needed in this false, hypocritical society. Man needs God desperately!
O come, sinners. Give up your hearts to Christ,
that He may write on it His Holy Law! You have long enough the devil’s law graven on your hearts; Come to the Lord Jesus, and He will both shelter you from the curses of the law and He will give you the Spirit to write all that law in your heart; He will make you love it in your inmost soul. Plead the promise with Him. Surely you have tried the pleasures of sin long enough. Come now and try the pleasures of holiness out of a new heart. If you die with your heart as it is, it will be stamped a wicked heart to all eternity. “He who is unjust let him be unjust still”- Rev 22:11.
