Now meeting at: 4915 Charlestown Road, New Albany, Indiana — "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord." 2 Corinthians 4:5

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…

The Wilderness Wanderer

“They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.” Psalm 107:4     The true Christian finds this world to be a wilderness. There is no change in the world itself. The change is in the man’s heart. The wilderness wanderer thinks it altered—a different world from what he has hitherto known—his friends, his own family,…

Comfortable Conclusions

  “Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound!” (Romans 5:20)       Dear Savior, in your sufferings I not only see the infiniteness of sin, but also the infiniteness of your love; so that, though I have cause with myself to be angry on account of sin, I need not despair. If the desert of my sinful folly is death—the merit of…

Ye WILL NOT come unto me… (John 5:40)

It has already been proved beyond all controversy that free-will is nonsense. . .I will go as far as Martin Luther, in that strong assertion of his, where he says, “If any man doth ascribe aught of salvation, even the very least, to the free-will of man, he knoweth nothing of grace, and he hath not learnt Jesus Christ aright.” It may…

Good Reasons for a Good Resolution

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful inn my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” Isaiah 61:10.   Dear friends, let me tell you, once for all,…
