"He must increase, but I must decrease," for "those who are true to their calling as messengers of God will not seek honor for themselves," (GW, 56). Self should be emptied and the daily surrender, the repentance, the meekness and humility, the insistence and the pleading, will assure us of our salvation and final reward of eternal life. Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Let Him in, take His pierced hand and accept His gift. Join us now to learn more !
"Our Redeemer has opened the way so that the most sinful, oppressed, and despised... may have a home in the mansions which Jesus has gone to prepare," (HLv, 68). What better hope and prize can we imagine to attain ! Christ is the Way; the glorious truth is that the victory over every difficulty is already yours, in Christ (E.J. Waggoner). Tune in to find out more about the millennium, the rapture, hell and a timeline of Christ's Second Coming. Heaven is but a decision away !
Men's hearts are still for evil continually, God's heart is still for love eternally; Satan stands for sin and prophecy and the law still stand to condemn him. God will prevail. Open your Bible and study God's Word with us ! "Where there is no vision, the people perish," but we have the tool of prophecy within reach to guide ! Learn with us of one-world unity, the antichrist, the faith of Jesus which will sustain, and the true church and bride of Christ.
As the disciples gathered to pray, "they were weighted with the burden of the salvation of souls." The Gospel needed to be carried to all the world, (AA, 37). We must all have this burden, and we must all ask ourselves if we are truly investing in the salvation of souls, for "in calling God our Father, we recognize all His children as our brethren," (Pr, 245). Then, are we silent, hoarding, asleep ? Are we joyful and feeling urged to share the good news of grace ? The Lord is waiting on us.
We have to fall in love with Christ again, we have to start from the beginning and see His love. For us to do that is going to take a full surrender and total repentance, a complete sacrifice. And Christ is worth it, so worth it... Heaven is cheap enough !! But what is repentance ? And does God ever reject us ? Be encouraged as you listen in ! Recommit, readjust. Christ's sacrifice, "God's all cannot be praised with less than our all," and we never praise Him better than when we obey (C.H.S.).
"The more closely believers have walked with God, the more powerfully have they testified of their Redeemer's love..." (AA, 49). As we study our Bibles and meditate on its truths, we realize the need to bear witness in our lives of Christ's character. Whether that be by defending our faith or by keeping hope through tribulation, we must stand as signs and wonders in the world, appreciating the beauty of complete involvement in the present and clutching tightly to the promises of our Lord.
Do not look to yourself, but away to Jesus... You will find Him away from yourself (2MCP, 808). This means surrender pride, worry and anxiety and problems, sinfulness. This means trust Jesus. Persevere. Surrender and trust as you study your Bible, surrender and trust as you fast. Surrender and trust as you hit rock-bottom. Fix your eye on the Sun of righteousness. He has the victory, He has the virtue, He has the strength - He has you in hand and His everlasting arms are about you (2MCP, 809) !
Sometimes there is nothing we can do except pray, surrender and repent. Repentance is a tricky thing isn't it, but it's necessary to pray in faith and bring our lives into harmony with our petitions (Pr, 216). Bend your knee before Him and regain your first love, fight the thinking so it doesn't become a doing. Bow your knees and testify that your whole is in subjection to the Spirit of truth (Pr, 208), and you'll learn even to love your enemies as God still loves you.
It is He that has made us, and not we ourselves. He knows us, knows our needs, knows our defects. He sees us... He is the name of our salvation. "The mercy which endures forever, and the fidelity which cannot forget a promise, secure to the chosen the salvation guaranteed by the covenant of grace," (C.H. Spurgeon). Open your Bible and your heart and learn more with us as we discuss what growing in grace by His side means, and how He can cast out all of our fears to bring us peace and comfort.
One of our greatest freedoms is choosing how we react to the circumstances in our lives. It is our freedom of choice. What will we choose to do if we fear we have committed the unpardonable sin ? What will we choose to do as we lie ill on our deathbeds and look back at our lives of supposed Christianity ? What will we choose to do if our fiancé isn't of our faith ? Join us during this episode of Bible Answers Live to learn more, for in the end the answers are all in His Word and His love.
The Lord's love is written everywhere in nature and revelation, testifying to His tender character. He makes known to us all of His gracious teachings, for "what should we ever know if He did not make it known ?" (C.H. Spurgeon). Would you like to know more ? Join us and we'll learn of spiritualism, prophecy and politics and we'll study prayer, time prophecies and probation. "Is it a great act of sovereign grace and condescending love when the Lord reveals Himself." Such a love has no parallel !
"With faith in your heart, courage in your soul, and determination in your mind, you must push the devil out... You indeed can’t do it without Him. But He won’t do it without you," (W.D. Frazee). We have a choice. We always have a choice, and every choice has a consequence. Will we collaborate and respond to His sacrifice or will we look the other way ? Will we allow Him to lead us away from temptation or will we step into it ? Will we choose Him today ? ...or will we choose ourselves.
From desert to lush, from nothing to everything and all that's in between during this life, just keep your eyes on Him, straining and pressing on toward the goal.

Our Father never lets go of us, despite us, through us, because of us... in the sin we commit, in the challenges we face, in the sacrifice for us. He never lets go, but we must. We must let go of the skepticism and of the comparison, we must let go of ourselves and delve deeply into His Word. In this installment of Bible Answers Live we'll explore more about evolution, bitterness or God's long-suffering toward us and others, and many practical matters. Come and open your Bible with us !
"The separation is wide and fearful, but Christ has made provision again to connect us with Himself," (NL, 45). We have every reason to believe and nothing to fear. In this new beginning, with the unknown and the uncertain, rejoice as you imagine Jesus smile, rejoice as you learn of His sacrifice for you, rejoice as you recognize the perfection of prophecy and the mercy of His condescension. Rejoice that He longs for closeness with you and surrender what distances you from Him.
