You Do Not Have Much Time Of the many video clips I watched of Billy Graham the week of his death, one in particular has stuck with me. Preaching in Southern Seminary Chapel in 1982, Graham said that at sixty-four years old, his greatest surprise in life was the brevity of life: ‘If someone had told me when I was twenty years old that life was very short and would pass just like that — I wouldn’t have believed it. And if I tell you that, you don’t believe it either....

Antichrist goes to Church JULY 19, 2018~ PASTORKOCH By Paul Koch – “This is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.” – 1 John 4:3 According to St. John, the spirit of the Antichrist is already among us. It roams about the world seeking to devour the saints of God. It is cunning and selective in its attacks. It doesn’t have to look evil or dangerous or ugly. In fact, it will most likely feel pleasant, look...

Word on Wednesday – by John Mason ‘Confession (2)…’ – July 18, 2018 Please pardon my irregular ‘Word on Wednesday’ in recent weeks. I have been traveling with limited connectivity. Taking up the thread of prayer again, in Daniel 9:1-19 we find a prayer that is worth reading, re-reading, and meditating upon. Indeed, for this reason I am repeating my ‘Word on Wednesday’ of July 26 last year. In Daniel 9:1, 3-5 we read: In the first year of Darius the son...

A Prayer when Prayers are Unanswered Our heavenly Father, there are times in our lives when we come to You, as children unto a good Father, and we ask of You things that seem not only reasonable but kind and good; so many times You provide for our needs before we even ask; but we confess that there are times when we ask and do not receive; yes, Lord, we ask amiss and do not receive, but, Lord God, do we not receive because of this condition each time we pray the seemingly...

And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian. Luke 4:27 The grace of God is abundant and free, all-sufficient to meet the need of the vilest sinner, but no man will receive the benefits who is not simple enough and humble enough to take God at His word, acting in like faith upon the message given. There was complete cleansing and healing for Naaman, without money or price. He was healed only in...

COMMON, too common is the sin of forgetting the Holy Spirit. This is folly and ingratitude. He deserves well at our hands, for He is good, supremely good. As God, He is good essentially. He shares in the threefold ascription of Holy, holy, holy, which ascends to the Triune Jehovah. Unmixed purity, and truth, and grace is He. He is good benevolently, tenderly bearing with our waywardness, striving with our rebellious wills; quickening us from our death in sin, and then...
