For or Against

Aaron Ireland He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. Matthew 12:30 Recently, an agnostic friend of mine drew my attention to an image on Facebook, comparing Jesus with Anakin Skywalker (aka, Darth Vader, a character in the Star Wars movies). The two stated anyone who is not with them, is against them. In the third episode of the Star Wars movies, Anakin says this to his mentor Obi Wan Kenobi, who replies, "Only a Sith (the evil counterpa...

True God, True Gospel

What kind of God do we present and what kind of gospel do we preach to a lost world ? Most Christians today answer in terms of God's love, yet there are surprisingly few references to this in the Bible By contrast, Scripture concentrates on divine goodness and righteousness. One day, God will put right everything that has gone wrong in His good world, punishing and banishing evil and making a brand new earth and heaven But can we be a part of this? The good news is that, through the Cross and Re...

But I Don’t Need Saving….

Aaron Ireland He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he the doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be m...

Wretchedness

Watchman Nee "O wretched man that I am!" cried Paul, "who shall deliver me from this body of death?" There is nothing more musical in the ears of the Lord. This cry is the most spiritual and the most scriptural cry aman can utter. He only utters it when he knows he can do nothing, and gives upmaking any further resolutions. At last he discovers there is no use in his making up his mind any more. Have you despaired of yourself, or do you hope that if you read and pray more you will be a bette...

The Line 3 – The Soft Still Voice vs The Roaring Lion

Dan Stone Our natural tendency is to think that God will only speak of pleasant things, and Satan only of unpleasant things, but that is to live from the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

The Line 2 – Freedom From the Burden of Trying to Become

Dan Stone Rather than trying to become more like Christ, we are to let Christ live his life through us, as us.

The Line 1 – Introduction

Dan Stone To the degree that we understand eternal realm, we are freed from the temporary realm. This constitutes the Something More of Christianity.

The Wagon Train – an Allegory

Edgar Parkyns Foreward By Aaron Ireland Many years have passed since I first heard this allegory. I don't know if I would classify myself as a "historicist", per se, but this made so much sense to me at the time. Although the idea of a pretribulation rapture can be quite a soothing one, at the same time, it feels awfully neglectful. Those who have read my article The Cleansing of the Sanctuary, have already been influenced, in some measure, to my eschatological views. Here is presented a log...

Beyond Categories

Arthur Katz Some reflections on the controversial Tent of Shem message and Israel's final destiny.  A transcription of a spoken message by the same title. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever He goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb (Revelation 14:4 KJV). The Lord is looking for a virginal first-fruits company that will follow the Lamb withersoever He goes,...
