Farewell

Farewell
 
Beloved Friends;
 
It has been brought to my attention this site has put out some false teachings and doctrines that are not Biblical… Therefore, I have decided to close down this site… And in the best interest of rising up the name of Jesus I strongly urge all members of this group to take every article I have published  and check it against the Word of God for truth and accuracy…
 
It has never been my intent or desire to...

Last Days

Posted Aug 2nd 2007, 08:27 by Apostle's Pen on Christian Living


Last Days
 
Precious Saints;
 
The term last days has become the popular catch phrase of the twenty-first century. Nearly every pastor has taught on the topic of the return of Christ and the end of time. But how many of us have seriously considered exactly what does the terminology “last days” really means. Does it mean an end of human life? Not hardly!
 
According to Scripture the answer to that is a bitter sweet NO. Bitter-sweet in the sense that for some of...

Good Works

Good Works
 
Precious Saints of God;
 
Over the eons of time every religion on earth has taught its followers to do good works. Even great numbers of the unsaved believe in doing “random deeds of kindness.” It’s really not whether we know the person or not. After all Jesus taught us that good works are expected by God from those who are Disciples of Christ. Mat 5:46-47 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not...

Power of the Word

Power of the Word
 
All too many times Christians forget the power that is contained in the marvelous Word of God. The Bible contains numerous promises for believers that God keeps by the power in His Word. We must never forget God’s name is upheld by the power of His Word. So there is power in the Word of God to make every promise manifest in our life. The prophet Jeremiah reminds us in 23:29 Is not my word like...

As A Man Thinks

As A Man Thinks
 
The purpose of today’s discourse is to assist us to develop a positive, godly mental attitude and so I highly recommend that we study this teaching until we become the image and likeness of God. Study until our very nature is to do the will of God on earth just as Jesus did…
 
Jesus was quoted several times as saying “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of...

God of Wrath

God of Wrath
 
Most of us haven’t heard a sermon on the wrath of God or the torments of Hell preached from the pulpit in the last few decades…Yet, Jesus spoke more about the torment of the wicked than He did about the bliss of the righteous. And in spite of His stern warning the words Jesus spoke are seldom preached and have for the most part have been ignored by the modern church.
 
Regardless of our personal opinion God...

Is The Church Sick

Posted Apr 26th 2007, 11:05 by Apostle's Pen on Christian Living


Is the Church Sick
 
Precious Saints;
 
Before we begin our discussion on what ails the modern Church we must emphasize the Church can never be defined or described as a religion or building. The Bible clearly teaches the “Body of Christ” is made up of many diverse members and like the human body the “Body of Christ” consists of many unique and specialized members each specially equipped to accomplish the specific purpose for which God created it. With that in mind we...

What If

What If
 
Precious Saints of God;
 
How drastically would our life change if God allowed us to look at our life through His eyes…? What would we see if God gave us the grace to see ourselves the same way He sees us? Recently God has begun a move to orchestrate changes in the Body of Christ that has affected the lives of many Disciples of Jesus.
 
God has allowed us to see ourselves the same way as He sees us...

Are You Plugged In

Are You Plugged In?
 
Precious Saints of God;
 
There is so much confusion regarding hearing God’s voice, or hearing from God that many Christians today are not only confused about hearing from God they are never sure when God is speaking to them. While God speaks to us in seven distinctly different ways the vast majority of Christians can’t hear Him above the clamor of their surroundings and without quieting our mind we’ll never be able to hear Him.
 
We must realize...

Spiritual Authority and Warfare

Spiritual Authority and Warfare
 
Precious Saints of God;
 
Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
 
There seems to be a misconception within the Body of Christ that just the mention of Jesus’ name will sent the devil and his demons running for cover. But this teaching really isn’t true. Consider for a moment the consequences the sons of Sceva suffered when they...

As A Man Thinks
 
Beloved Saints of God;
 
Our study scriptures this morning are Prov 23:7a  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: and Mat 12:34b for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. Today I feel the time has come for us to prepare ourselves for the trials that lie ahead. The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is working to prepare us to engage the enemy and to stand with our feet shod...

Forgive and Forget

Posted Mar 8th 2007, 01:30 by Apostle's Pen on Christian Living


Forgive and Forget
 
Precious Saints of God;
 
There seems to be some misunderstanding about Christian forgiveness. Over the eons of time we have been taught that we should forgive and forget any offense another person makes toward us. And on the surface this appears to be Biblical but the truth is opposite. Biblical forgiveness is remembrance without pain. God never intended for us to suffer the pain of reliving the entire event all over and over again during the course of...

Sin is Moral Insanity

Sin is Moral Insanity
 
Beloved Saints of God;
 
Sin entered the world through the fall of Adam and Eve and the longer we allow it to exist in our world the bigger bite it will take out of our lives. When Cain murdered Able God told Cain that Able’s blood was crying out from the earth for justice. And so it is with the blood of every innocent person that has been shed for no reason. Blood from the aborted babies,...

Elect Saints of God;
 
Isa 1:18-20 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Pleasing God or Men

Pleasing God or Men
 
Beloved Saints of God;
 
Gal 1:10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
 
In the first chapter of Galatians Paul gives us his answer to the question that each of us must answer in our own life. What is my purpose on this earth? Will we be a Father pleaser or a people pleaser? The...
