Now meeting at: 8604 Commerce Park Drive, Sellersburg, Indiana, USA — "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord." 2 Corinthians 4:5

The Sovereign Providence of God

Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked? (Ecclesiastes 7:13) It cannot be questioned but the crook in the lot, considered as a crook, is a penal evil, whatever it is for the matter of it; that is, whether the thing in itself, its immediate cause and occasion, are sinful or not, it is certainly a punishment…

LOOK TO CHRIST-NOT THE LAW

A friend of mine once asked a certain divine in London what he thought of the law as the believer’s only rule of life? He replied, “The believer must look with one eye to Christ, and with the other to the law.” But he brought no more proof from the word of God than this author has, who attempts to prove it…

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

What is the heresy of Rome, but the addition of something to the perfect merits of Jesus Christ—the bringing in of the works of the flesh, to assist in our justification? And what is the heresy of Arminianism but the addition of something to the work of the Redeemer? Every heresy, if brought to the touchstone, will discover itself here. I have…

Walking Not After The Flesh But After The Spirit

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:4 …Believers are to be justified, not by works of righteousness which they have done, of whatever description, but solely by faith in Jesus Christ, in whom their reconciliation with God is complete. It is this grand truth which, from the beginning of…

Our Own Wisdom, Righteousness & Strength

“Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.” 1 Corinthians 3:18 The fruit and effect of divine teaching is to cut in pieces, and root up all our fleshly wisdom, strength, and righteousness. God never means to patch a new piece upon an…

The Only True God

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Friends there is only one God.  Though there are…

God Does Not See Our Sin

“Noah planted a vineyard: and he drank of the wine, and was drunk; and he was naked in his tent” Genesis 9:20-21. Some condition for Noah, the only righteous man, the preacher of righteousness, to be found in! BUT WHAT IS MAN? Look at him where you will, and you will see failure – in the garden of paradise, he fails; in the…

God’s Sure Promise of Salvation

“Their Redeemer is strong; the LORD of hosts is his name: he shall throughly plead their cause.” Jeremiah 50:34 Behold the gracious covenant promises of God in Christ held forth to the full assurance of faith. The final destruction of all our adversaries is sure. Every child of God by promise, as Isaac was, may well join that hymn of old, and…

“Salvation is of the LORD” Jonah 2:9

Salvation is not a cooperation between the works of man  and the work of God.  All salvation is the work of God alone upon which man is the object and recipient. (Ezek.20:9; 14; 22; 44, Isa.11:11-17) Salvation was purposed and decreed of God the Father by Sovereign Election.( Eph.1:3-6; Rom 8:28-30; 2Tim1:9; Rom. 9:11-15) The redemption and righteousness of the elect were…
