    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 1/18/20 | Chuck Ness
    The original clay model used as the mold for the famous, "Il Cristo degli Abissi" statue, can be seen at the Ravenna "National Museum of the Underwater Activities" in Italy. The original statue is in the Mediterranean sea off San Fruttuoso, between Camogli and Portofino on the Italian Riviera. The statue was placed in the water on 22 August 1954 at approximately 17 meters depth, and stands 2.5 meters (8.5 feet) tall. Professor Guido Galletti cast the original from the inspiration of the first Italian to use SCUBA gear, swimmer/diver Duilo Merchant. Galletti wanted a symbol to inspire all who...

    We are all hopeless sinners who live in a corrupted body that is continually under attack by powers under the control of the ruler of this World. (John 14:30) Both Christians and atheists face the same temptations. While aheists could careless about the destination of their souls, they are still tempted to do stupid things that can harm them and those around them. Christians however, can often times worry incessantly about their soul due to the temptations of this World. So if, you as a Christian, are constantly under attacks by the Evil one's minions, then how can you be...

    "Is Christ's work finished? Is God's word true? Yes, verily. Then, if I simply trust therein, I am pardoned, justified, and accepted. All my sins were laid on Jesus when He was nailed to the cursed tree. Jehovah made them all meet on Him. He bore them and put them away; and, now, He is up in heaven without them. This is enough for me. If the One who stood charged with all my guilt is now at the right hand of the Majesty in the heavens, then, clearly, there is nothing against me. All that divine justice had against...

    And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the...

    ..................... There are several versions of this poem on the internet. Some say the author is unknown. Some attribute the poem to Samuel Porter Jones, a 19th Century Methodist evangelist. The version I offer is a compilation from several sources. Not knowing for certainty as to whom the human author is, I prefer to credit the Holy Spirit. Praise God The Incomparable Christ “He came from the throne of the Father to the womb of a woman. He put on humanity that we might put on divinity. He became Son of Man that we might become sons of God. He...

    With every lawsuit before the Supreme Court being rejected, and the constant lies being told by the MSM, it seems like the elections are on the brink of being confirmed for Biden. Like everyone, watching them attempting to steal the election right before our eyes, is beyond real. Then we see so-called elected Republicans sit by without even lifting a finger to help President Trump. Like the Democrats, they seem to be rooting for China to succeed. Then as time goes on, I keep hearing a word repeated over and over by millions of Americans across the country. It's...

    Christian Post ^ | 11/28/2020 | Jackson Elliott
    The Gospel has advanced powerfully in 2020, Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) President Franklin Graham told The Christian Post. In 2019, 1.3 million people gave their lives to Christ, Graham said. In 2020, 1.7 million people did. “I try to shy away from the questions on numbers. God’s the one who gives the increase. It’s not Franklin Graham and it’s not the institution,” he said. The pandemic meant that Graham had to cancel evangelistic crusades and concentrate on using new ways to spread the Gospel. Situations might change but the call to preach the Gospel faithfully...

    I can truly say that my understanding of the salvation I received from Christ has been made abundantly clearer thanks to this letter. I would love to thank the author for the growth I gained in studying this letter. However the identity of the author is unknown, but there is no lack of ideas as to who wrote it. The list goes on and on as to who the author was. The opinions run the gamut from Barnabas, Paul, and Apollos (whom I personally go back and forth in awarding my vote to) some scholars even suggest that either Priscilla...

    Lifted Up, Like A Snake The Desert by Chuck Ness Give me a moment of your time and allow me to introduce you to something very few Christians never considered when hearing the phrase, “Lift Christ up with Praise.”. Quite often you will hear a Pastor use this phrase as he instructs you to give glory to God, through His Son. Have you ever really considered the significance of the phrase? Many people know the verse, John 3:16. Most Christians have it locked into their memory blank. For me, that was the first verse I ever memorized in Sunday...

    Lately there have been times when I become angry at the things I see going on in the world. I find myself wondering if the things I care about are worth my time. I see many people walking around in a daze, caring only for what the world has to offer them, not what the Lord does.It seems like my friends and relatives dismiss the things I share with them as just another rant from someone who is way too wrapped up in things they could care less about. My frustration can become so overwhelming that I wonder why...

    A Love Letter FromOur Father In Heaven by Chuck NessOctober 31, 2020 When asked by His disciples to teach them how to pray as John's disciples prayed, Jesus gave them this prayer as a model. "Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever....

    Message For Today Was Jesus A Socialist? A great question that needs to be answered during any election. See, every time a leftist runs for office, they try to fool politically and Biblically ignorant Christians into voting for their Socialist agenda. Christians are told that Christ would approve of their Big Government ideas, because Jesus was a Socialist. They like wrapping their fake compassion into words that twist what Christ taught. So every election millions of Christians vote for ungodly Socialists, many of which are our friends and relatives. They vote Democrat, without realizing they are voting for a...

    On the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood up and called out in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him. He was speaking about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. For the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet been glorified. Christ spoke these remarkable words while attending the "Feast of Tabernacles," as recorded in the Gospel of John, Chapter 7.

    Beloved, do your part today as Christ's solider for America in these last days without compromising our TRUE ETERNAL calling to outlive and proclaim the ETERNAL Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray for Almighty God's grace for America, pray for revival and a coming back to Almighty God in RIGHTEOUSNESS, pray for healing, pray for Israel and Almighty God's providential hand on our nation for good, but ALWAYS be looking for the Blessed Hope and Rapture of our RIGHTEOUS Savior (1 Cor. 2:2, Gal. 2:20, 2 Tim. 2:1-4)! For that indeed my beloved is our TRUE HOPE in such days and...

    Each of the Persons of the Trinity were present at Christ's baptism as recorded in all four gospel accounts Two topics I haven't touched on much before, although we've discussed them at great length on the forum, are the Trinity and the deity of Christ. In this article I will address these fundamental theological truths. What Is the Doctrine of the Trinity? This is the belief, as revealed in Scripture, that there is a single, immutable, eternal God (monotheism), who eternally subsists as the mutual indwelling of three Persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit). When properly...

    Oh, yes, He was, and as Jesus would pray on the cross on which He was crucified and died for our sins, something which also applies to the Don Lemons of the world, he intoned, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Or say. In defending the destruction of tax-payer funded property, the rioters do not own or honor, even including the Founders and the preservers of our democracy, such as Washington, Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln and even to the point of possibly sandblasting Mt. Rushmore, Lemon uttered perhaps the most imbecilic words ever to come out...

    Enough is enough. From this die forward any conversation with the woke church has to be viewed as an interfaith dialogue. This is not an in house discussion any longer. You have a different law, different gospel, different word and in some cases an overtly different god.
