Essential Elements of Faith

Essential Elements of Faith

Building our lives upon His living Word. Those who love the Lord Jesus Christ want to please Him more than all else. Scripture declares, “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (Hebrews 11:6). Those who please God must have faith. Faith...

Wanted. Men of Character

Wanted. Men of Character

More than ever before, God is looking for men of character—men who have the maturity, integrity, and ability to lead the people of God. In the lives of those whom God calls to be His ministers, God places a higher priority on what they ARE than on what they can DO. Bible standards have not changed; the fruit produced by a person’s character (Matthew 7:20) is...

The Cornerstone

The Cornerstone

The concept of a “cornerstone” is found in several places in the Word of God. The word is used to describe the most precious, valuable, and unmovable stone in the building—the stone from which all other measurements for the building are taken.

Even great revivals like the Welsh Revival all crashed...

Peter spoke several times on being watchful and vigilant (1 Peter 4:7, 1 Peter 5:8). The Apostle Paul in writing his last letter exhorted to “watch in all things…” (2...

Today, If You Will Hear His Voice

Today, If You Will Hear His Voice

“Again, he limiteth a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts” (Hebrews 4:7). How often have we heard this familiar exhortation? Even though it is one of the most recognised portions of scripture, it can be one of the least regarded. In fact, the words “Today if you...

The Greatest Diamond Cutter

The Greatest Diamond Cutter

“The hand of the Lord hath wrought this” (Job 12:9). Several years ago there was found at Premier Mine, Cullinan (South Africa), the most magnificent diamond in the world’s history. It was presented to the King of England to blaze in his crown of state. The king sent it to Amsterdam to be cut. It was put into the hands of an expert diamond cutter. And...
