  • "The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple" (Sermon for the First Sunday after Christmas, on Luke 2:22-40)

    12/25/2021 10:11:59 PM PST · by Charles Henrickson · 3 replies ^ | December 26, 2021 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple” (Luke 2:22-40) Yesterday was Christmas, and now we’re into the days after Christmas. For us, these days mean eating leftovers, returning gifts that don’t fit, and taking down the decorations. But what about for Jesus? What did the days after his birth mean for him? Our text is one the few places we have an account of what happened during that time. It’s the story of what happened forty days after his birth, when “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple.” Actually, the first event after Christmas we have is found...

    In a Mormon(LDS) blog interview,1 Jenkins defended not only the Mormon owned Vid-Angel distribution and the filming of “The Chosen” in Utah on an LDS set, but he also defended the idea that Mormons follow the “same Christ” and that there is no significant difference between Mormons and Evangelicals. He further admitted that many LDS people are working on the project and influencing his thinking. Jenkins’ defense against criticism was quite telling. Hear it in his own words: “So even if you are listening to this right now as an evangelical and are horrified to hear me say some of...
  • The Deity of Christ - Devotional

    12/02/2021 1:19:43 PM PST · by metmom · 4 replies ^ | 1997 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    “[Christ] existed in the form of God” (Philippians 2:6). Christ possesses the very nature of God. In the second part of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, Christiana and her children travel toward the Celestial Country. During their pilgrimage, Interpreter introduces them to one of his male servants, whose name is Great-heart. When Christiana asks Great-heart to explain the nature of Christ’s forgiveness, part of his answer is: “He [Christ] has two natures in one Person, easy to distinguish but impossible to divide. There is a righteousness that belongs to both of these natures, and each righteousness is essential to that nature,...
  • UK Bureaucrats Ban Word ‘Christmas’ For Fear It Will Offend Minorities

    UK Civil servants have axed the word ‘Christmas’ from a proposed government campaign, for fear the term will offend minorities. British civil servants have apparently embraced their inner Scrooge, vetoing the use of the word ‘Christmas’ from being used in a coronavirus testing drive aimed at students, arguing that the use of the term runs the risk of offending minorities within the country. The campaign, which reportedly would have revolved around ministers using the slogan “Don’t take COVID home for Christmas,” is part of a larger government effort to limit the spread of the Chinese coronavirus after two cases of...

    This timeless warfighter’s aphorism used to be the motto of many a US Military Brigade and Battalion prior to our woke transformation. I am not sure if this quote is currently allowed in our new military of pronouns, experimental vaccines, transgender surgery, and Critical Race Theory.The quote is often attributed to General George S Patton, however if you analyze it deeper, the statement goes back much further. It is a corollary of the Roman aphorism, “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” which translates to, “To secure peace, prepare for war”. Yet even the Roman Axiom is merely a corollary to Sun...

    Each day in many ways God tests us, or allows us to be tested. Will I believe what God says, or will I make my own judgment? Will I go along with the crowd, or will I follow truth regardless of whether anyone believes or not? Is Sigmund Freud correct when he says I need to “love myself more”, or is God correct when he says “whoever loves their life will lose it, whoever hates their life in this world will keep it unto eternal life”? Do I need Government to provide for my needs, or does God provide? Will...

    And Samson said unto them, I will now put forth a riddle unto you: if ye can certainly declare it me within the seven days of the feast, and find it out, then I will give you thirty sheets and thirty change of garments: But if ye cannot declare it me, then shall ye give me thirty sheets and thirty change of garments. And they said unto him, Put forth thy riddle, that we may hear it. And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could...

    And after a time he returned to take her, and he turned aside to see the carcase of the lion: and, behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion. And he took thereof in his hands, and went on eating, and came to his father and mother, and he gave them, and they did eat: but he told not them that he had taken the honey out of the carcase of the lion. So his father went down unto the woman: and Samson made there a feast; for so used the young men...
  • SAMSON ... The Birth of the Savior

    And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son. Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing: For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God...
  • Samson pt 1: The Philistine Crisis

    And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.( Judges 13:1)The Book of Judges is a divine record of the early years of the History of Israel, as they took possession (or failed to take possession) of the Promised Land. It is a tedious and repetitious record consisting of a recurring cycle, in which Israel initially relied on God in Faith, and set out in Battle against her enemies to take the Land, and then would prevail for a season, possess the...

    Christians will suffer because of what we believe. We must take the opportunity every single day, in every aspect of our lives, to demonstrate courage.What follows is adapted from a speech given at the Truth Be Told conference in Tennessee on Saturday, October 2. Twenty-eight years ago yesterday, Task Force Ranger was deployed on a mission to capture the lieutenants of a warlord who had been wreaking havoc on the people of Mogadishu, Somalia. Authorized as part of Operation Restore Hope, the mission goal was to gather intelligence that would lead to the capture of warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid. This...

  • THE NEW TESTAMENT DOCUMENTS Are they Reliable? (Preface, Chapt. 1)

    02/16/2008 2:24:23 PM PST · by blue-duncan · 7 replies · 103+ views
    PREFACE TO THE FIFTH EDITION Reliable as what?' asked a discerning reviewer of the first edition of this little work, by way of a comment on the title. His point, I think, was that we should be concerned with the reliability of the New Testament as a witness to God's selfrevelation in Christ rather than with its reliability as a record of historical fact. True; but the two questions are closely related. For, since Christianity claims to be a historical revelation, it is not irrelevant to look at its foundation documents from the standpoint of historical criticism. When the first...

  • Christ’s Glorious Resurrection

    Teleios ^ | Teleios
    While Christ’s death dealt with our personal sins so we would be found innocent, the key to eternal life is His resurrection. Scripture states if there was no resurrection, we would remain dead in our sins (1 Corinthians 15:17). It is Christ’s resurrection that enabled several of the secure positions before God. It is Christ’s resurrection that allowed Him to ascend to heaven to send the Holy Spirit to seal us (Romans 8:9), to now head the family of God into which we are adopted (Ephesians 1:5) and to spiritually baptize us so we are identified with His new life...

    Beloved in Jesus; we are to be believers in Jesus Christ first and Americans second; for in doing the first, we will fulfill the second rightly in time! When this Divine order is kept in Almighty God's will, America will prosper physically, mentally, and spiritually as NEVER before! I personally believe that our nation was not spared in 2016 to "Make America Great Again" by obtaining and keeping our national sovereignty, economic growth, and prosperity; but for Almighty God's people to diligently and prayerfully get out Almighty God's saving message to all of Adam's race before the coming Day of...
