Where Is This Coming He Promised?

by admin

(II Peter 3) “WHERE IS THIS COMING HE PROMISED?” Mike Johnson The Bible frequently speaks of the second coming of Christ.  In one of the historical accounts (Acts 1:8-11), the Apostles were told by two angels, after Jesus had ascended to Heaven, “…Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same […]

Support the Weak

by admin

SUPPORT THE WEAK Mike Johnson Paul closes out the book of I Thessalonians with some very important and practical exhortations.  In chapter 5, verse 14; he “exhorts” (NASB — “urge”) the brethren to, among other things, “support the weak.” Christians certainly have a responsibility to “support the weak.” The weak are those who are spiritually […]

Are We Complacent About Sin?

by admin

ARE WE COMPLACENT ABOUT SIN? Mike Johnson Many years ago my wife and I moved into a house which was very close to a well-traveled train track. Trains traveled on the tracks throughout the night.  At first, the whistles from the trains woke us up.  Before long, however, our sleep was rarely disturbed by the […]

Immortality

by admin

IMMORTALITY Mike Johnson  “Death is not a period but a comma in the story of life.” A comma is used in a sentence to indicate a pause.  A period is end punctuation.  It is used to show the end of a sentence.  With this idea in mind, the above quotation says a great deal.  It […]

Love for God

by admin

Love For God Mike Johnson  The Bible teaches that we are to love God.  Matthew 22 reveals a case where some Pharisees were questioning Jesus.  A scribe asked Him what the greatest commandment was.  In verse 37 Jesus replied, “ . . .  Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and […]

The Importance of Truth

by admin

The IMPORTANCE OF TRUTH Mike Johnson What is truth?  This is a very good question.  Pilate asked it in John 18:38.  He may, however, have asked the question with scorn rather than with a thirst for knowledge.  Nevertheless, it is still a significant question. Jesus said in John 17:17 in his prayer to God, “ […]

Truth Is Narrow

by admin

TRUTH IS NARROW Mike Johnson  Truth is narrow.  This is a principle that is easy to see, and most people understand it.   Consider an illustration from science.  We know that under ordinary conditions, at sea level water freezes at 32 degrees.   Suppose a scientist says, “I am very broad in my scientific beliefs.  I am […]

Some Facts About the Judgment

by admin

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE JUDGMENT  Mike Johnson   What does the Bible teach about the judgment day?  It is very important for us to understand certain facts about the judgment.  The judgment is frequently mentioned in God’s Word and was often preached (Acts 24:25; 10:42).  Consider some facts in God’s Word about the judgment. IT IS […]

Blaming Others for our Sins

by admin

BLAMING OTHERS FOR OUR SINS Mike Johnson  It is very common for people to try to blame their mistakes on others. People have a tendency to want to shift responsibility, to pass guilt on to someone else. There is also a tendency to blame SIN on other people. This was done in biblical times by such […]

Carried by Angels

by admin

Carried by Angels  Mike Johnson An interesting line occurs near the end of Hamlet, as Shakespeare has Horatio saying these words as Hamlet dies: “…Good night, sweet prince, / And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!” (5.2.361-2).  Shakespear’s idea of angels being near when an individual dies does not conflict with what we […]
