Personal - Our Youth Are Under Attack!

  Dear Brethren and Friends, Powerful forces of evil are facing our youth more than in any time in modern history! I want to address this problem as strongly and openly as I can. I hope that I will offend none of you by being somewhat plain in describing various situations. The world—and its media—certainly describes these things in detail. So we should not be “embarrassed” about discussing this reality that is being propagated in our society and which our young people understand far too well—whether some of us older people grasp this or not. Thousands of you older brethren are parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts who have a sincere interest in helping the youth in God’s Church. So all of us have a responsibility to help our young people understand what is happening to them before it is too late! For many of them will be “lost” to the Church and to the way of God unless we take action!

Three Things Nailed to the Cross

 In 31ad in ancient Judea, the day of the Passover would have been a busy one. It was the first of the year’s three Festival seasons, and the Feast of the Passover (Nisan 14) is also the day of preparation for the First Day of Unleavened Bread (Nisan 15), which is a Holy Day. So there was much going on in preparing for the Holy Day, and Jerusalem was filled with people coming and going. But because Judea was a conquered province of Rome, some things were distinctly not festive. Read More »

Did He Rise?

 Unlike many of the religious faiths and philosophies of the world, Christianity is rooted in fact and history. We proclaim that certain facts of our faith took place in real history, seen and heard by real people. Read More »

Feast on the Bread of Life

 Jesus Christ declared to a great crowd of His listeners, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35). These words were spoken at one of the early Passover seasons of Jesus’ ministry (v. 4). They puzzled His hearers then and they have puzzled many others since. Read More »

Three Ways to Do Our Part in the Work

 Jesus Christ is now in heaven at the right hand of God, doing the same work He did on earth, but doing so through His Body, the Church… which is us. The degree to which we are participating wholeheartedly in Christ’s Work on earth reflects how much we are behind Him and are fulfilling the very purpose for which He has called us out of this world.  Read More »

A Profitable Day

 It is quite common today to use the expression “Have a nice day!” when we take our leave of someone. It creates a very encouraging and positive effect. This expression has been around for quite some time now, but it never seems to get old or tiring. It simply means, “I hope you have a profitable day,” and I believe that most people sincerely mean this. It is not just a casual, trivial expression. Read More »

By Prayer and Fasting…

 Scripture tells us what our Savior did to acquire spiritual strength, in connection with the devil’s attack on Him: “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted [or tried] by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry” (Matthew 4:1–2). Notice—He fasted! Read More »
