All Negative Things Solved by Christ’s Death

“All negative things have been solved by His all-inclusive death on the cross. We do not need to do anything except believe in what the Lord has accomplished. He has dealt with and solved all of our problems. He has left no room for our doing or work. So, there is no need of our work, only faith in His finished completed, and all-inclusive redemptive work.”

A Revolutionary Concept about the Bible

A commonly held thought about the Bible is that it’s mainly for studying, and so questions like these arise: How can I study the Bible? What Bible study method should I use? What’s the best Bible study tool? Although these are good questions to consider, they distract us from one of the most crucial concepts about God’s Word.

Grace and Reality

John 1:17—“For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.” Note 1 on law, grace, and reality says: “The law makes demands on man according to what God is; grace supplies man with what God is to meet what God demands. The law, at most, was only a testimony of what God is (Exo. 25:21), but reality is the realization of what God is. No man can partake of God...

Light and Life

“From both the words of God and our own experience, we see that light is especially related to life. We may say that it is due to our being enlightened that we receive life. And the measure of life we receive corresponds exactly with the measure of our enlightenment. Only the shining of light can bring forth life, and only the shining of light can increase life.”

Knowing the Truth of God’s Cleansing

Seeing the thoroughness of God’s forgiveness of our sins reassures us and gives us a way to go on. In this post we’ll discuss God’s cleansing of our sins. God’s cleansing certainly applies to our experience...

The Love and Grace of God

“God’s love and grace toward us are not conditional or temporary. It was not love from our side that saved us, but love from His (1 John 4:10). He loved us with an eternal love (Jer. 31:3).”

Eternal Life in Christ Jesus Our Lord

Romans 6:23—“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Note 3 on eternal life says: “Eternal life is the very life of the Triune God Himself. This life has been imparted into us on the basis of our having been justified by God, and it is now spreading throughout our being through sanctification and transformation. This will result in our being...

The Key to True Inner Peace

It seems daily we wake up to more news of continued upheaval, war, injustice, and senseless violence everywhere. Despite the many initiatives put forth and strategies employed, a lasting solution for global peace remains elusive. In a world teeming with turmoil and unrest, people yearn for changes that will bring peace. And in our own personal world, we’re often beset by troubles. Even we...

Holiness and Light

“In God there is the capability of holiness and the function of light. Because the life of God is in us, the same capability of holiness and function of light are in us as in God. Just as God can live out His holiness and shine forth His light from Himself, so also we, because of the life of God within us, can live out His holiness and shine forth His light from us, which means we can be holy as...

The Resurrected Christ Can Meet the Need

“Apply the resurrected Christ, the unlimited, inexhaustible One. Tell Him, ‘Lord, I cannot meet the need, I cannot face the situation, but how I praise You, You can. I go ahead trusting wholly in You, counting wholly upon You.’”
