What Law Are We Under Anyways

My favorite verse in scripture is an entire chapter really, Romans chapter3. This passage of God’s word I have written about many times before. There is so much revelation of God and His relationship with man in this chapter it is just astounding. The nature of man, the nature of God, the gospel of Jesus Christ, the perfect justice and wrath of God against sinful man, the love and mercy of God, the righteousness of God through it all, and that it is all of God; man’s only part in all of this is his sin.

I would like to talk today about the very last verse of Romans chapter 3. “Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law” ~Romans 3:31. Up until recently this verse was a conundrum for me. I made the assumption that the writer, Paul, was referring to the Law of Moses (The Ten Commandments) but that did not really fit since he makes it obvious through this chapter that man is saved by faith in Jesus Christ alone. And states …

Abortion is a Man's Sin Issue!

The worldly saying that abortion is a women's health issue is a lie. The truth is that abortion is a man's sin issue. In the garden; "The LORD God commanded man, saying, 'From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day you eat from it you will surely die" ~Genesis 2:16-17. The man and the woman consumed the forbidden fruit and sin and death entered into the world.

“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” ~Genesis 1:27. “Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being” ~Genesis 2:7. “So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man…

Judge What is Right

“And why do you not even on your own initiative judge what is right? For while you are going with your opponent to appear before the magistrate, on your way there make an effort to settle with him, so that he may not drag you before the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. I say to you, you will not get out of there until you have paid the very last cent.”~Luke 12:57-59

In this parable your opponent is The Lord, the magistrate and judge are God, the officer are His angles, and the prison, hell.

This parable is telling us to take a look at our sins and judge what is right, to look into the mirror of God's law and judge ourselves according to His Holy standard, on our own initiative before we go before God in judgment. Don't think that your going to be able to go before the judge and plead your own case, then it will be to late. Look at your sins now and judge yourself by your own initiative and make an effort to settle with …

Why is it that you were looking for Me?

I went out with my cross today. I see people that rejoice in seeing the cross, and some scorn, but most ignore. There are many brave Christians that go to killing places to plead for the lives of babies as they are being slaughtered in the womb. In my community to the glory of God that is not happening yet, and it will be my prayer that it never does, abortions that is. I took my cross, a 4ft’x2.5’ stained wood cross with 3” letters on the cross beam that say, “ARE YOU READY”. I got this idea from an evangelist in California named Tony Miano, many others have taken up this idea across the country and made their own crosses and go out with them in their communities. “ARE YOU READY” it’s a good conversation starter because people will ask; ready for what?

I took my cross today to the location of Planned Parenthood in Tyler, TX. Why? Because first of all it is on Broadway Ave, one of the busiest roads in Tyler; and secondly, were do most of the women come from who are scheduled…

Don't Be Forsaken of God, Repent and Live

I'm a wicked sinner undeservedly saved from the wrath of God against my sin by the grace if God through faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ on the cross alone. Because He has saved me my life is not my own I have been purchased at a high price; the price, the precious blood of God the Son, Jesus Christ. I'm a gospel preacher and go into the world and proclaim His gospel as The Lord has command that I do.

All sins can be forgiven of all who repent of there sins and put there faith in Jesus Christ alone. To repent is a change of mind to the way you see God and the way you see sin, to turn from sin and self turning to God by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.

Have you ever told a lie? Is it not true that if you even tell one lie that you are in fact a liar? And the word of God says; "and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Jesus said; "You have heard that it was said, ‘ You shal…

Carnal Christians Need Not Apply

For the past three days I have been slowly reading through the gospel of Mark and each day I have asked the Lord to show me something that I haven’t known before. Today as I read I came to a passage in Mark chapter 8 and realized something. Here is that passage: “And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.’” (Mark 8:34-38)

When I read that today my first thought was “That’s the narrow gate and the narrow way from Matthew 7.” I live in …
