The Pastor’s Postings (Page 6)

My Soul, Wait Thee Only Upon God

(Psalm 62) Amid all the trials, conflicts, and attacks from the enemies of his soul, David always returned to his original hope, as the dove returned to the ark. “MY SOUL, WAIT THOU ONLY UPON GOD.” The battle is the Lord’s; and He only can justify, comfort, and keep me. “MY EXPECTATION IS FROM HIM” (vs. 5). In Him dwells all fullness,…

Our Afflictions In The Way

If we are true Christians, we must not expect everything smooth in our journey to Heaven. We must count it no strange thing, if we have to endure sicknesses, losses, bereavements, and disappointments, just like other people. Free pardon and full forgiveness, grace by the way, and glory to the end — all this our Savior has promised to give. But He…

A More Sure Word Of Prophesy

“And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts . . .” 2 Peter…

Sinners Reconciled to God By Christ Alone!

Martin Luther, who used to preach this doctrine very vehemently and forcibly, yet declared that he felt as if he could knock the Bible about the peoples heads if he could by any means get this doctrine into them; for so soon after they had learnt it did they forget it. Over and over, and over again must the Christian minister continue…

God’s Earthly Pilgrims Have Him As Their Safe Home

“Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.” Psalm 90:1-2 The Christian knows no change with regard to God. He himself may be rich today—and poor tomorrow, he may be sickly today—and well tomorrow, he may be…

Do We Accept Or Receive Jesus Christ?

Preachers of free-willism constantly exhort their hearers to “accept Jesus Christ.”  This phrase is never found in Scriptures.  Rather, Scriptures emphasize receiving, not accepting Christ.  For example, “He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:11f). There is an important…

The Fall Overruled By God’s Grace

I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High. (Psalms 9:1-2) “Ye shall not go empty” (Exodus 3:21b) It is God primarily who has been wronged in all his rights by sin. Yet, man…

Today’s So-Called Church

Church membership has become the best place to hide from God.  Religious beliefs and experiences serve as refuges to shield them from the arrows of conviction and the message of real redemption in Christ. Everybody in this super church is “saved” and are insulted if the question of their interest in Christ is raised or ever suggested.  There is no possible way…

Salvation Is In A Glorious Christ, Not A Doctrine

The subtlety of Satan is such that there are those in our day who so vehemently stress and emphasize Christ’s imputed righteousness as the sinner’s only ground of justification before God, that they fail to preach CHRIST HIMSELF who is our righteousness, CHRIST, “who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption.”  Consequently, they may be leading…
