What We Need - Published on August 4, 2019
...     What we need in this thing of salvation is not merely to be acquainted  with Christ but to have His righteousness! It is nothing to reform a  man, to get him religious and make some decisions for Jesus, but what is needed is regeneration from the Holy Spirit. “But when it pleased God,  who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, to reveal his Son IN me….” (Gal 1:15,16a). The passage did not say to reveal...

Come With Us and We Will Do You Good - Published on August 4, 2019
...“And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of Raguel the Midianite, Moses’ father in law, We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good: for the Lord hath spoken good concerning Israel”. (Numbers 10:29).      Now I implore you, whoever you are, where ever you are; do this if you can do nothing else: Come with the people of God and hear of our Gospel, our God and our su...

The World is Crucified to Us : And We Are Crucified to the World - Published on August 4, 2019
..."But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world." - Galatians 6:14 [KJV]      Paul here is dogmatically declaring that with every fiber of our being, with every thought, word and deed WE ARE TO DETERMINE TO HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN ANYTHING BUT CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED. He does not suggest or imply any other course of action on the part of the believer. THE CRUCIFIXION OF OUR LO...

He Who Does the Work Gets the Glory - Published on August 4, 2019
...     The Bible calls moral virtue the fruit of the Spirit. I take this to mean that true moral virtue, as love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, etc., when found in our experience, is ascribed to God, to His Spirit.      It is a simple point, but a point that gets stuck like a bone in the throat of every Pharisee: God gets all the glory in salvation. Self righteous people cannot stand this; indeed, they hate this above everything else, because it attacks what make...

Modified Covenant Thelogy : CT vs. DT vs. NCT vs. MCT - Published on August 2, 2019
...     I put together my original CT vs. NCT vs. MCT article about 15 years ago, and I originally made some errors in my understanding of Covenant Theology (CT).  I'm publishing a new article today in 2019 so that I can correct my mistakes and give a more accurate presentation of my beliefs today.  I will say that my theology has not changed in over fifteen years.  The things I believe today, I believed in 2004. Key: CT = Covenant Theology DT = Dispens...

Even the False Preacher is from God - Published on August 2, 2019
...     Both the faithful gospel preacher and the false one come from God. One is approved and the other is not approved.      Many people don't know this and will throw a tantrum because they don't know the scriptures.      God wants all who are non-elect to remain deceived in lies. GOD IS HE WHO GIVES OVER PEOPLE TO BELIEVE A LIE SO THAT HE MAY CONDEMN THEM.      There are preachers who are marked out to be condemned. An...

For Thy Pleasure They Are and Were Created - Published on July 30, 2019
...“For Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.” – Revelation iv, 11.      In this expression inspiration has been pleased to give us the object of creation. Mortals in their ignorance and conceit, act much as though they supposed the world was made for their special, selfish interests, and benefit; entirely ignoring the exalted plane from whence revelation testifies of the wise and deeply-laid purposes of Him, who has brough...

What We Believe : Sovereign Grace Church in Jackson MO - Published on July 30, 2019
...The Need of Salvation All men and women, since the fall of our father Adam, are born in a state of spiritual death. Because of their evil nature, they cannot and will not turn to God. They cannot of themselves obey God or exercise faith in Christ. (John 5:40; 6:44; Rom. 3:9-19; 5:12; Eph. 2:1-3) The Cause of Salvation From before creation God chose many of Adam's fallen race to salvation. Those whom He chose deserve God's wrath as much as the others. However, God chose them in C...

Responsible Christian Parenting - Published on July 29, 2019
...“Train up a child IN THE WAY he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” - Prov.22:6      All of us as parents have a tremendous responsibility placed on us in the upbringing of those precious sons and daughters entrusted into our care. We dutifully and carefully prepare for and seek to provide everything necessary for our children’s PHYSICAL NEEDS. We want the best education, the best nutrition, the best in safety and se...

Contending for the Truth - Published on July 29, 2019
...     Contending for the truth against the errors of modern religion is the duty of God's servants. I hope our spirit is one of genuine love to all the chosen of God; but today's rule of charity which requires us to keep silent on certain points in order to avoid controversy, I utterly despise. It is treason to the Lord Jesus to be silent on any point where He has spoken and the honor of His gospel is concerned. It is easy on the flesh to deal in generalities, to denou...

Social Media - Published on July 26, 2019
...     We live in a Facebook world.  Not so long ago, no one thought about communicating so easily with such a potentially wide variety of people, but things are different today.  I recognize that the people of God as well as the general public receive quite a lot of enjoyment via this social media.  It is a wonderful way to stay in touch with family and friends.  Gospel articles, cheerful words, recipes, pictures, etc. are shared with others which bring gladness...

Going to Heaven Because Already There - Published on July 26, 2019
...For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: - Heb 9:24      The only ones who are going to heaven are those already there. They are already there because they entered in their Representative Christ Jesus, when He entered heaven having finished the work that accomplished their salvation. He, as their High Priest with their names on His breastplate and shoul...

Abstract Witness - Published on July 22, 2019

When Christ alone is lifted up, ... and the will of man's cast down, Vain religion mocks, ... and hates the truth we teach! Even though they can't agree, with one another's view, ... ... they'll ban together firm against the word. Fragmented in their own beliefs, ... as liberal as they are, ... ... they will not near permit that which they've heard! It has always been amazing fo...

On Being Slandered - Published on July 21, 2019
...    Christians hurt by ill words of others, or despairing for the falsity of a judgment rendered against them, may take the following as consolation:  As difficult as it is to hear of unkind or untrue things spoken about you, consider this: It is better for the things to be slander than to be accurate depictions. Does it hurt to think of how others represent you? Take comfort in knowing this: God has blotted out your transgressions, keeps no record of your wrongs, and deligh...

The Angels of 2 Peter 2:4 - Published on July 20, 2019
...DEAR BROTHER BEEBE: * A friend at Booneville, Miss., requests my views through the SIGNS on 2 Peter 2:4, “For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment.” I had rather answer him privately, but cannot make out his signature.      As Peter is speaking of false teachers in the connection of our text, and also speaks of the destruction of the old world by the f...
