    “Go Forward”

    One can be thankful that there are multitudes who believe that the Blood of the Savior is before the eye of God; it is a good beginning, but it’s not all. It is an immense gain to believe that because of the Blood, “the Jude of all the earth” passes by (Gen 18:25; Exo 12:13). A familiar phrase...

    Eternal Salvation

    There is only one strain of salvation--"Eternal salvation" (Heb 5:9), which is an "everlasting consolation" (2Th 2:16) and an "eternal glory" (2Ti 2:10). If it's not permanent it's not salvation, for the crux of salvation designs the intention of being in permanent and unbroken fellowship with...

    There I Am!

    Though the old man’s ways beset, yet only for a time Till the saint sees it clear, to lay them all behind The skies now cloud-cleared, and as oft as thou would No troubles or disappointments, but walking as thou should Now standing through assails, encouraged with all might Ever seeing Jesus...

    Watching and Growing

    In the days of Moses and the Law, many among Israel were fearful of a relationship with God, they knew He expected them to live a godly lifestyle by their own power according to His holiness (Lev 11:44; 20:7, etc.). This was often accompanied with dread among those believing in God, who often...

    A Worthy Retro-post

    Reckoning to be “dead to sin” (Rom 6:11) does not free us from sin’s guilt, this was eternally established at rebirth. Reckoning or believing we’re dead to sins guilt establishes freedom from the old man’s “dominion” (Ro 6:14) in our minds, conscience and walk! Identification (compiled by...

    Body Beautiful

    God used one man—Adam—to begin a race of beings in which He was to reveal in the universe His love, by creating man (second to the trinity concerning significance) in His “image” and after His “likeness.” He used one man—Noah—to manifest to the world afterwards the urgency of His “righteousness”...

    Comes the Dawn

    After being saved, increasing our walk in Christ’s image (Eph 4:15; 1Jo 2:6), which is by the Spirit through His Word, is the primary work concerning everything so that we can “draw close to God” (Jas 4:8) in our earthly fellowship with Him, and therefore be used more effectively by the Lord...

    The Sinless Human

    The Lord Jesus was fully human physically but not spiritually, that is, He had the nature of our body but not the nature of our soul (the soul being the reasoning entity of our spirit). The nature of a human soul is sinful, but the nature of Christ’s soul was sinless! Thus only Christians have...

    Infinite, Eternal Kingdom

    “That I may know Him” (Phl 3:10). The more the child of God knows the Father and the Son, the more he longs to know. He comes to his Father to find fresh delight, and to be filled anew with Joy. “That your joy may be full” (Jhn 16:24; 1Jo 1:4) is a word for eternity as well as for time. Here our...

    Which World, Christian?

    Wisdom calls for differentiating between morality (the physical) and godliness (the spiritual); the former pertains to the horizontal relationship between mankind; and the latter, the vertical relationship between God and mankind! Of those regenerate there are two classes; those who are...

    Be Encouraged

    Does it at times seem you’re missing something? Often, it’s the desires after “the old man” to which we were so accustomed to following that is missing, which can produce an uneasiness due to the lack of a familiar sensuality. Though all that the sin nature performs is impure, it yet moved us...

    Triune Tribulation

    There are three types of tribulation or dealings of the Father in the way of discipline in the wilderness for us. First, tribulation in which we may glory; for instance, suffering for Christ in this evil world (considered evil due to most will remain in unbelief – Matt 7:13, 14—NC). This is...

    Love Union

    Is pride, even unknowingly, delaying our growth in Christ’s image (Eph 4:15)? If so, it’s only because we may not be as open as we should to the Spirit’s teaching (1Co 2:13). Of course pride for all believers, in some degree or another—regardless of how humble—is always effecting us in what we...

    A Said-faith

    I believe it’s not commonly understood that an “apostate” is one who only professes to be in the faith but in truth has yet to be saved, i.e. reborn. Of all who profess to “confess Jesus is Lord” (Ro 10:9), there will always be some (“a little leaven”) who only “honor Me with their lips...

    Partakers of His Sufferings and Glory

    It’s just the “old man” (Adamic-sin nature), so don’t let it trouble you (Jn 14:1, 27; Phl 4:6)! Yes, if at times you seem to be bothered, even in a somewhat significant degree and it appears that you are uncertain as to the direct cause of it, just remember that it can always be traced back to...

    Gracious Growth Exercise

    After being reborn, believers have only to continue to grow in the strength of their faith—which is manifested in their works—for salvation does not admit in degrees. Thus all saints are saved at the one and same position of redemption, but “walk” at varying levels of discernment, understanding...

    The Galatian Suppositions

    Paul was admonishing the Galatian Churches by informing them that the admixture of the Law with the Gospel of Christ was an attempt by the false teachers to “pervert” the Gospel of Christ (1:7), and nowhere in this Epistle does there exist any conclusions that suggests the Galatian Christians...

    Tribulations’ School

    For believers, everything encountered, even all that is self-originating is used for their good (Ro 8:28); which is for the purpose of being continually “conformed into the image of His Son” (v 9), via growing in their faith. Thusly is all that transpires in the lives of the saints which is...
