Faith Alone (02-04): Good Works, Faith, And Grace

October 29, 2022

Faith Alone (02): Saved For Good Works For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.  (Eph 2:8-12) You are saved by grace alone through faith alone. For all those who put their faith in Jesus, the Day of Judgment will be a day of vindication. But faith changes more about your life than just your eternal destiny – it…

Faith Alone (01): Saved From Death

October 22, 2022

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh–who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands– that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without…

The Mercy Seat

January 2, 2021

“Now when Moses went into the tabernacle of meeting to speak with Him, he heard the voice of One speaking to him from above the mercy seat that was on the ark of the Testimony, from between the two cherubim; thus He spoke to him.” Numbers 7:89 Moses was given instructions for constructing the tabernacle by God in order for the Lord to meet (tabernacle) with His people.  His Presence would go with His people.  He would tabernacle with His people.  This of course prefigured “Immanuel” – God with us – the Lord Jesus Christ. “And He said [to Moses],…

God’s Righteousness Is Revealed

February 29, 2020

“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed” (Romans 3:21) Since all have broken the holy law of God, all are liable to death. Death is theirs by merit. Death is the due wage of sin (Romans 6:23). Full payment is due God. Physical, spiritual, and eternal death are the due wages of sin. Man, left to himself, can never attain the righteousness that God’s holiness demands in His law. He cannot obtain the righteousness of God through obedience to God’s law. How can God remain absolutely just and yet declare a man to be righteous?…

Masterpiece

“The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.” (Genesis 49:10) As Jacob was about to die, he blessed his sons and his grandsons (Ephraim and Manasseh).  When he blessed Judah, he declared this prophetic blessing, “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.” This is an allusion to the coming of the Messiah, the Kingly office of Jesus Christ.  This is a continuation…
