Are All Saved? - Mini Article Now Available

“We trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe” (1 Timothy 4:10).  God is the “Savior of all men” but not all are saved, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).  God has made His offering for any who will accept it. “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand …

Salvation and Bible Faith: Mini Article Now Available

No one has received a revelation from God since the New Testament was finished. God’s last word to Israel was: “Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments” (Malachi 4:4). 400 years of silence from God followed.  God has similar statements in the New Testament: “contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all de…

Right Judgments: Mini Article Now Available

“Discrimination” is the quality or power of finely distinguishing,” or making judgments. Making moral judgments based upon what God says is exactly what God wants us to do. Solomon asked God to, “Give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" (1 Kings 3:9). Making “judgments”…

Cancel or Cancer? New Mini Article

“Do not remove the ancient landmark Which your fathers have set”          (Proverbs 22:28). God’s Wisdom plainly states that no one should “plow under” the entire society. Without “history,” details of The Creation by God would be forgotten: “This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens”     (…

The Flood Sand Dunes: Mini Article Now Available

The Flood Sand Dunes - 3-8-2021                      
“For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water” (2 Peter 3:5-6). People act as though the world-wide flood in Noah’s day (Genesis 6-9) was some exaggerated local flood. A…

Verbally Inspired - Mini Article Now Available

Paul argued the “verbal inspiration” of the Bible regarding the "seed" promised to Abraham: “Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as of many, but as of one, ‘And to your Seed,’ who is Christ”(Galatians 3:16). God's original promise to Abraham is recorded in Genesis 22:18: "In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed."…

Pay Back OR Forward? - Mini Article Now Available

“Do not say, ‘I will do to him just as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work’" (Proverbs 24:29). Returning evil for evil means the victim has become evil, or dropped to the level of the evil-doer. The wiser way says, “Do not say, ‘I will recompense evil;’ Wait for the LORD, and He will save you” (Proverbs 20:22). The best way to treat an evil-doer is: “If …

Can We See God? - Mini Article Now Available

While on Earth, Jesus said to Philip: “He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?” (John 14:8-9) Thus, Jesus “is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation”(Colossians 1:15). Jesus is the “image” (icon) of “the invisible (aorata) God.” Jesus emphasized, “Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen…

To Have Or Have Not - Mini Article Available

Jesus said: "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses" (Luke 12:15). Envy and covetousness exist when those who “have not” train their eyes on what others “have,” desiring to obtain it by evil means, then we have an example of what God calls “covetousness,” which is idolatry (Colossians 3:5). Satisfaction with wha…

What Price "Unity"? - Mini Article Now Available

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”          (Romans 1:18). Many are calling for national unity. “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3) Opposites cannot be brought together unless one side repents and relents. “Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrif…

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”          (Romans 1:18). Even Jesus had difficulty getting Jews to accept the truth about Himself: "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth,…

Engendering God’s Wrath - Mini Article Available

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”          (Romans 1:18). Jesus said, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female'” (Matthew 19:4). Efforts to suppress the gender truth of Creation engenders God’s wrath. Whether it is to remove gender diff…

Sin's Sly Beginning: Mini Article Now Available

The Devil, as a serpent (Genesis 3:1Revelation 12:9), tempted Eve in three steps: 

1) Doubt - “Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?" (Genesis 3:1); 

2) Denial - "You will not surely die” (Genesis 3:4); 

3) Distrust -"For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil" (Genesi…

Insane New Year: Mini Article Available

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God" (Psalm 9:17). No one questions that many Americans have forgotten God:  Evolution has replaced "The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth" (Isaiah 40:28); Affluence has replaced dependence upon "the LORD Almighty" (2 Corinthians 6:18); Immorality and Indecency have replaced "the pure in heart " (

A Truly New Year: Mini Article

Under the Law of Moses, God began each Jewish New Year with the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16). With a special, once a year ceremony, the sins of the people were pronounced on a “scapegoat” and a sacrificial sin offering and a burnt offering were also offered. The nation was to begin their yearly planning by making things right with God. Under the Law of Jesus Christ, God “now commands all men ev…

New Year Party, Old Year Vomit

“But they also have erred through wine, And through intoxicating drink are out of the way; The priest and the prophet have erred through intoxicating drink, They are swallowed up by wine, They are out of the way through intoxicating drink; They err in vision, they stumble in judgment. For all tables are full of vomit and filth; so that no place is clean” (Isaiah 28:7-8).   Is that a good New Y…

Christ or Christmas? Mini Article Series, Part 4

Jesus said of the Pharisees: “’And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men--the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do. He said to them, ‘All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition’” (Mark 7:7-9).  

Do you notice the “d…

Mini Article part 3: Star Light, Star Bright

Reason for the Season PART 3: 

On December 21, the Jupiter and Saturn regular 20-year conjunction will occur to observers, this time appearing closer than usual. The closest observable conjunction before that was in medieval 1226! The miraculous “Star of Bethlehem” led wise men, but had nothing to do with a “regular conjunction,” because Matthew 2 says:

(1) it moved to guide wise me…
