The Potter and The Clay

The Potter and The Clay

“The righteous and the wise and their works are in the hand of God.” (Ecc. 9:1) “Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?” (Rom. 9:21) “Thou art the potter, I am the clay; mold me and make...

Dead Churches

Dead Churches

God has no use for dead churches and dead church members.  He condemned the church at Sardis which had a name that they were alive but in reality they were dead (Rev. 3:1).  A little later in Revelation 3 God condemned the church at Laodicea because they were in the...

Entreat Me Not To Leave You

Entreat Me Not To Leave You

The beginning of a beautiful commitment of love from long ago is found in the statement “Entreat me not to leave thee.” It was neither from a husband to his wife, nor a wife to her husband, though it would be perfectly acceptable. This statement of love and commitment...

There’s An All-Seeing Eye Watching You

How often has man committed some great sin and attempted to hide it?  Why is it that men often do more evil in the darkness than in the light?  Jesus said, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light,...

Judgement Day

Judgement Day

People in general have trouble fitting in God’s judgment.  Many think the day of judgment is a day when God will find out if a man is guilty or innocent.  This is not the case at all.  God knows all things before they ever take place. The day of judgment is not for...

One Who Never Changes

One Who Never Changes

I was in a restaurant when I heard a man behind me say, “Let me help you. Take your time.” He was talking to an older lady. She was at a point in life where sudden movements make her dizzy. After he helped her stand up she stood still for a while to gain her balance...

Please Obey the Voice of the Lord

Please Obey the Voice of the Lord

The appeal of the prophet Jeremiah in the long ago was “please obey the voice of the Lord which I speak to you. That it may be well with you, and your soul shall live” (Jer. 38:20). While many today claim to hear and speak the voice of the Lord, Jeremiah did (Jer....
