Influence

Each one of us has individuals that influence our life. Parents are high on many people's list of those making a difference in their lives. After all, without our mom and dad, we would not exist. Teachers are also high as influencers in people's lives. Thinking back to my school-age years, there are teachers I … Continue reading Influence

Fixing The Church

There are seven churches listed in Revelation chapters two and three. I believe that every church, in any place or time, can point at one of the seven churches and say, "There we are." In other words, every church holds the characteristics of one of the seven churches. If we look back at church history, … Continue reading Fixing The Church

The Next Full Moon

As I was up before sunrise this morning, I gazed at the full moon in the western sky - the last full moon of winter. I could not help but think of the next full moon, the first of the spring season marking the coming of Easter. My mind went back two thousand years and … Continue reading The Next Full Moon

Poor In Spirit

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 5:3. Look at the promise given to the poor in spirit! The kingdom of heaven, which is salvation, eternal life. You may be thinking, "I thought salvation was through faith." It is. There are hundreds of verses that announce that … Continue reading Poor In Spirit

Faith and Truth

Eternal salvation comes through faith, by grace. Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." The Bible explains that everyone is a sinner, and the washing away of sin can only happen by the … Continue reading Faith and Truth

The End Never Comes

Last week Preacher's Point ended with the battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ. Most people believe Armageddon is the end of the world, but that is not the case. This universe we now live in will melt with fervent heat a little more than a thousand years after Armageddon (2 Peter 3:10-13). … Continue reading The End Never Comes

Are There Tears In Heaven?

There are a lot of things that are yet to happen, according to the Bible. Most of the attention is on the rapture, the coming seven-year Tribulation Period, and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. There is little discussion about the events after the Tribulation and the Second Coming. Revelation 20-22 describes the events after … Continue reading Are There Tears In Heaven?

Through The Spirit

Christian, are you dead to sin? Romans 8:13, "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." A lot is going on in this one verse.  There is a duty prescribed - mortify the deeds of the body. … Continue reading Through The Spirit

The Bible And Social Issues

It would be impossible to cover every social issue in 700-900 words, so we will start with the hot Supreme Court topic, abortion, and see where that leads us. Abortion. God is the creator of all life (Genesis 1; John 1:3; Acts 14:15, 17:24). So, we must ask, does life begin at birth, conception, or … Continue reading The Bible And Social Issues

Why All The Shootings?

In the last couple of weeks, I have seen photos of children in the 1950s taking marksmanship courses in school. Most of these pictures are of high school-age kids; however, one image was of elementary school-age children handling weapons in the classroom during a "gun safety class." Another post was about a local elderly man … Continue reading Why All The Shootings?
