February 12th in the Year of Our Lord, 2021

Isaiah 33:22,  says:

For the LORD is our judge,
The LORD is our lawgiver,
The LORD is our king;
He will save us—

In the age to come, the redeemed will finally attribute all of their happiness and joy to their all-sufficient Lord alone. Men will not judge other men, for the Lord is our judge, and men will not make laws, for the Lord is our lawgiver. James 4:12 says:
There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

It is strange to my ear when I hear someone say that there our Christians and there are disciples of Christ. There are those who believe in Jesus and there are those who follow Jesus Christ as Lord. Somehow a mindset of easy believism crept into the church. I believe that this originated from two sources: The first source is the doctrine of justification by faith. The second source is sin. The second source twists the beautiful doctrine into unrighteousness. Easy believism is the false doctrine, that a person can be saved from the penalty of sin through faith in Jesus Christ but remain unrepentant. That a person can feast at the table of sin during this life and feast at the Lord’s table in the age to come. That a person does not need to repent from sin but only need believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved. This is a wicked doctrine!

It is not for me to judge my neighbor for there is but one Lawgiver and Judge. There is but one King and Savior; he is seated at the righthand of the Father. A day and hour is coming in which Jesus will come with all of his angles to sit down on his glorious throne to judge the nations. Oh man, what will you say when he looks at you, and says, “What have you done with my Word?”

It is good that Jesus is our judge, and it is good that Jesus is our lawgiver, and it is good that Jesus is our king because he is full of grace and truth. (Jn.1:14, 17) There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ; all who capitulate to him as Lord and trust him as Savior.

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
