Eternal Life and Eternal Security

John 10:28—“And I give to them eternal life, and they shall by no means perish forever, and no one shall snatch them out of My hand.” Note 1 on eternal life and My hand says: “Eternal life (see note 151 in ch. 3) is for the believers’ living. The Father’s hand, by which He chooses in His love according to His purpose (17:23; 6:38-39), and the Son’s hand, by which He saves by His grace for the...

What Hebrews 12:2 Says About the Source of Faith

Have you ever felt you were lacking in faith, or found it hard to believe in the Lord at times? In previous posts, we discussed what faith is and where it comes from, and how we can be strengthened in our faith. Today, we’ll focus on Hebrews 12:2 and accompanying notes in the New Testament Recovery Version that show us Jesus is the source of faith, and how to apply this fact in our Christian life...

Consecrating Ourselves to Enjoy Christ

“You must consecrate yourself sincerely to the Lord for the simple purpose of enjoying and experiencing Him—nothing more. From the moment you awake in the morning you need to say, ‘Lord, here I am. I give myself to enjoy Thee. Grant me through the entire day, from this moment on, to experience and apply Thee in every situation. I am not asking for tomorrow. I am asking for grace to enjoy Thee...

Delivered from the Soul to the Spirit

“God does not intend to deliver us merely from faults to a state of faultlessness; He intends to deliver us even more from the soul to the spirit. He wants us not only to live a faultless life, but even more to live a spiritual life, a spiritually faultless life.” 

Come to the Lord and Find Rest for Your Soul

Many things can be a burden to us: financial difficulties, troublesome work environments, painful family situations, our health. Often, we may feel completely worn out—not just outwardly tired, but inwardly exhausted—from struggling to bear these burdens.

Jehovah our Salvation

Matthew 1:21—“And she will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins.” Note 1 on Jesus: “Jesus is the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew name Joshua (Num. 13:16), which means Jehovah the Savior, or the salvation of Jehovah. Hence, Jesus is not only a man but Jehovah, and not only Jehovah but Jehovah becoming our salvation. Thus, He is our...

Man’s Free Will and God’s Eternal Will

“Even though God wants man to be fully submissive to Him, He also gave man a free will. God’s intention is that man’s free will would choose to obey Him. This is a glory to God! In eternity future the free will of man will be joined to God’s eternal will. That will be the time for God’s eternal will to be fulfilled and for man’s free will to become harmonious with God’s eternal will.”

The Big Question: What’s the Meaning of Life?

As the school year is about to begin, we at Bibles for America have a heart that students on today’s college campuses would hear the gospel and receive the Lord, thus finding the real meaning and purpose of their human life. To that end, we’ve created this tract specifically to share with college students. If you would like to share this gospel tract with anyone you know who is seeking the true...

The Bountiful and All-Sufficient Supply of the Spirit

“When we are weak, let us go to the Lord, saying, ‘I praise You, Lord, that in this situation I am weak.’ By contacting Him, we will see what a wonderful Spirit He is, dwelling within us to be the bountiful and all-sufficient supply.”

The Indispensable Requirement

1 Corinthians 2:9—“But as it is written, ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard and which have not come up in man’s heart; things which God has prepared for those who love Him.’” Note 3 on love Him says: “To realize and participate in the deep and hidden things God has ordained and prepared for us requires us not only to believe in Him but also to love Him. To fear God, to worship...
