THE GIRDLE OF TRUTH: OUR SAFEGUARD AGAINST LYING AND LIARS

September 13, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

THE GIRDLE OF TRUTH: OUR SAFEGUARD AGAINST LYING AND LIARS

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth.”

Eph. 6:14, KJV.

“There is absolutely no safeguard against evil but truth. No man can stand firm for right in whose heart the truth does not abide. Thee is only one power that can make and keep us steadfast—the power of God, imparted to us by the GRACE of Christ.

“There are many in the church who take it for granted that they understand what they believe; but, until controversy arises, they do not know their own weakness. When separated from those of like faith and compelled to stand singly and alone to EXPLAIN their belief, they will be surprised to see how CONFUSED are their ideas of what they had accepted as truth.

OUR SALVATION & JUDGMENT IS MUCH NEARER THAN WE FIRST BECAME BELIEVERS

April 16, 2020

FROM YOUR PASTOR’S DESK:

OUR SALVATION & JUDGMENT IS MUCH NEARER THAN WE FIRST BECAME BELIEVERS. 

“And that knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than we [first] believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put in the armor of light. Let us walk [live] honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering [feasting/partying] and wanton was, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill the lusts thereof.” Rom. 13:11-14,KJV.

“We are living in the most solemn period of this earth’s history. The destiny of earth’s teeming multitudes is about to be decided. Our own future well-being and also the salvation of other souls depends upon the course which we NOW pursue. We need to be guided by the Spirit of God [not by our feelings nor what the majority says]. Every follower of Christ should earnestly inquire, ‘Lord, What wilt Thou have me to do?’
