Nehemiah 2:8 – Providence

The ways of divine providence are difficult to fathom. The reason for this is that in providence God is operating "behind the scenes." Unlike a miracle, providence is not a physically demonstrable proposition. We know that our Maker operates providentially only because the Scriptures plainly teach this concept. There are many clear cases of Heaven's providential activity in the Scriptures ... read more »

Isaiah 6:1-5 – Isaiah’s Vision of Jehovah

In the year that king Uzziah died, Isaiah saw "the Lord" sitting upon a throne. Heavenly creatures stood above this divine Being crying, "Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory." In the presence of such majesty the prophet felt his exceeding sinfulness, hence, declared: "Woe is me! for I am undone; because ... read more »

What Is the Meaning of “Corban”?

Acts 15:9 — Hearts Cleansed by Faith

In Acts 15 at the conference in Jerusalem, Peter testified as to how God had used him as an instrument for the conversion of the Gentiles.

If We Never Meet Again

Final words are cherished. On November 5, 1994, President Reagan wrote a farewell address to the nation, announcing the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

What would you say ... read more »

Jesus Christ: Approved, Disapproved, and Proved

One of the most illustrious discourses adorning the Book of Acts is Peter's proclamation on the day of Pentecost. We do not, of course, possess the entirety of the words and events of that remarkable day described in Acts 2. It is not revealed, for example, what the apostles were preaching in those new languages when they were accused of ... read more »

The Rescue of Christ — So-Called

Solomon once declared that "of the making of many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh" (Eccl. 12:12).

A man argues that the law of Moses was binding until Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70. One of the passages used to support his position is 2 Corinthians 3:11, which states that the law "is passing away" (NKJB). Therefore, it had not yet been removed. What are we to make of this? The gentleman is a ... read more »

Jesus Christ and the “I Am” Expression

When Christ declared: "Before Abraham was born, I am" (John 8:58), was he referring to the statement in Exodus 3:14, "I am that I am," and therefore identifying himself with the "Jehovah" of that context? This is the question we will explore in this article. In John, chapter eight, there is an animated exchange between the Lord and a certain ... read more »
