Many questions can be asked about the moral or ethical rational that justifies investments and living comfortably. We can even deduce a scriptural basis for seeking a higher standard of life or... More > purchasing a lottery ticket even though we have to know these topics are not culturally part of the Biblical world. We might consider the first part of Hebrews 13:5: "Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have.” If the Bible doesn’t clearly pronounce our thoughts “unholy” they can be contemplated and practiced cautiously within an awareness of God’s peaceful vigilance. All our inquiries can be quietly put to rest. To see our well-being or “good fortune” outside an interest in furthering the cause of Christ in our lives, developing a stronger faith, confirming an active hope, or expressing an extended love—to seek wealth for personal pleasure alone—contradicts everything we know about being rich in a New Testament theological sense.< Less

This is a study in Grace. The language of the Scriptures had the added burden of speaking for God, representing His thoughts in some elementary form that would aid faith in seeking after Him. The... More > culture of heaven, we can say with a prima facie reasonableness, is beyond the scope of the text. To explain the coming age in the language of this age is not the burden of Scripture. The Bible was written to promote the message of grace and our salvation, not in such terms that would make sense out of all that God purposes for us, His people, but the basic message to germinate faith in our hearts and give us the insight of hope for that world to come.< Less

Discipling is the study of the Bible as it applies to the change that salvation has already brought in the process by which the Lord is continuing to change each believer. This truth is best taught... More > in the privacy of a friendship between the young Christian (a disciple) and a more mature believer, who shares his or her knowledge. It is for this reason we are referred to this discipling series as a “discovery.“ There is a sevenfold discovery that each believer finds as they live the Christian Life. The seven booklets in our series deal with these in order.< Less
The Suffering Servant: Isaiah's Astonishing Prophecy By John King

My primary interest in writing this essay is centered on a couple verses (10-12) in Isaiah's 53rd chapter which for me provides irrefutable proof in the revelatory content of Isaiah’s prophecy... More > and therefore an additional support for a christian’s faith in God. For centuries there has been a scholastic or academic effort to refute this simple faith in the inspiration of Scripture, but our faith deserves a voice. Philip with the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26) didn’t have John 3:16 or Acts 16:4 or Romans 3:23-25 to discuss God’s salvation through Christ ...but he had Isaiah. Should we need any more to convince us of the providential hand of God, the irrefutable evidence, that confirms and validates a christian faith in Isaiah’s work as the Word of God!?< Less

This work represents the daydreaming of a retired minister of his perfect church. It becomes a study of the Beatitudes. The beatitudes are the key to interpreting Scripture because they speak of the... More > Cross. They are, themselves, a pastoral hermeneutic that is the scriptwriter for every sermon and the voice of all biblical counsel. A thousand theologians would have a thousand different views on this dynamic text and all would be right. In a thousand sermons and homilies we have not begun to uncover the secrets contained here for living a holy life. The way of holiness is locked away in these verses—even though Jesus gave us the key, "follow me" (John 12:26)< Less

The plan for our salvation was drawn up in the ages past by our Lord to encompass, not just those final acts of forgiveness but, the entire span of our Savior’s sojourn among us. As the ... More > earthly life of the Savior comes to its climactic conclusion, so does the fury of the opposing darkness. Whatever devilish plans may have been held in reserve over the 30 or so years Jesus was among us, have inevitably and predictably, on the eve of His death, burst forth in all its rage. As Jesus approached Golgotha, He invited more and more people to involve themselves in some way in the confrontation. What was once a very private conversation on some forsaken hillside with His twelve discussing His sufferings and death, had become a sermon "shouted from the housetops." It is the Story of when the light invaded the blackness of a spiritual night. It is the Story of when God walked among us.< Less

Afterward as he descended the stairway from the upper room (how appropriately named) in which we gathered for the study I matched his gait step for step while picking up the crumbs (my questions recalled) and force-feeding them to him one after another after another. Suddenly, he stopped. Was he needing to focus and think through some astute answer to my latest? Not exactly. Just then he sighed and betraying his exhaustion and wanting to bring this night to a merciful end, he sighed, "John, Ask God!" What a brilliant idea which, until pastor mentioned it, I had never thought to do. It became a life changing word of advice.< Less

I had been accused by church leadership of preaching a more psychological rather than theological message but was this not what Jesus did the day He taught His disciples the secret to being happy?... More > (Matthew 5:1-10 “blessed” means “happy”) The Beatitudes, as we called them are not attributes of God, nor do they represent the 10 commandments, nor are they fruit of the Spirit. The Beatitudes are no theology. They profile the heart of a follower of Christ whose focus is on following Him. A true follower stripped of all other passions is possessed of no other interest. There is no scripture more psychologically revealing of a true follower of Christ than here.< Less
