"Christian reader, if you value the health of your soul, cease hearing and quit reading all that is lifeless, unctionless, powerless, no matter what prominent or popular name be attached thereto. Life is too short to waste valuable time on that which does not profit. Ninety-nine out of every hundred of the religious books, booklets, … Continue reading Follow the Scriptures–Not Man!
What a farce it all is! (Arthur Pink) The vast majority of the churches are in a sorry state! Those that are out-and-out worldly are at their wits end to invent new devices for drawing a crowd. Others which still preserve an outward form of godliness often provide nothing substantial for the soul; there is … Continue reading Farcical False Converts Fooling The Sheep
He gives His beloved sleep! (Arthur Pink) "He gives His beloved sleep." Psalm 127:2 How often is it lost sight of, that the Lord cares for the bodies of His saints--as well as for their souls.

"Hold me up--and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117 "So do not fear--for I am with you! Do not be dismayed--for … Continue reading Depending on the Blesser Not the Blessings
"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers" (Psalm 1:1).

“The heart of man must have an object unto which it is inclined or whereto it cleaves. The thoughts and affections of the soul cannot be idle or be without some object on which to place them. Man was made for God, to be happy in the enjoyment of Him, to find in Him … Continue reading Man Was Made For God…His Heart Was Made For Hell
“How different will be the body of the saint on the resurrection morning from its present state–the same body which was sown in the grave, and yet not the same! So too with those saints alive on earth at the Redeemer’s return: ‘Who shall change our vile body that it may be fashioned like unto … Continue reading Same, Yet Not the Same
