Standing For God

Oswald Chambersby Oswald Chambers

He will glorify Me… —John 16:14

The holiness movements of today have none of the rugged reality of the New Testament about them. There is nothing about them that needs the death of Jesus Christ. All that is required is a pious atmosphere, prayer, and devotion. This type of experience is not supernatural nor miraculous. It did not cost the sufferings of God, nor is it stained with “the blood of the Lamb” (Revelation 12:11). It is not marked or sealed by the Holy Spirit as being genuine, and it has no visual sign that causes people to exclaim with awe and wonder, “That is the work of God Almighty!” Yet the New Testament is about the work of God and nothing else.

Wonderful Encouragement! Enjoy!

Standing For God

John MacArthurby John MacArthur

“Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass” (1 Thessalonians 5:24).

God is faithful in forgiving our sins and securing our salvation.

The Key To Freedom

As a heartbroken, weak and weary individual, I couldn’t even imagine freedom from the bondage of my past. I carried it with me everywhere I went, oppression weighing so heavy on my heart that I physically drooped from it. I thought I would be imprisoned in the pain and heartache of my past forever. Yet in […]

You’ve Been Waiting A Long Time

I could almost hear the creek as it gently swung open to reveal a tiny light on inside of it. Looking from the outside I knew that the Lord was in there, getting things ready for us

Does He Know Me?

by Oswald Chambers He calls his own…by name… —John 10:3 When I have sadly misunderstood Him? (see John 20:11-18). It is possible to know all about doctrine and still not know Jesus. A person’s soul is in grave danger when the knowledge of doctrine surpasses Jesus, avoiding intimate touch with Him. Why was Mary weeping? […]

Looking For God’s Handwritting

by George Whitten Psalms 56:3 Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. We came across this story in the book, Steel in His Soul, The Dick Hillis Story and it really ministered to us so we thought we’d pass it along. Missionaries Dick and Margaret Hillis found themselves caught in China during the […]
