Approximately two millennia have passed since God-incarnate ascended from this earth to be seated at the right hand of the Father. The messengers in white apparel proclaimed the wonderful tidings: “Jesus … shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:10–11). “The promise of His coming” stands unshaken
“And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh…” 1 Timothy 3:16. O that all of
Sunday, June 4 We thank God for the mighty way He has blessed His saints this campmeeting! It is almost beyond belief
Sin is deceitful. How else would a human being dare commit an act of rebellion against his Creator, knowing full well that

Friday, March 24, Morning Service This morning a message entitled Babylon was preached by Bro. Ray Tinsman. In this message we were informed about the system of the world which is set up to oppress and keep people in bondage. Isaiah 44:28. “That saith of Cyrus, He is
Sunday, March 5 Bro. Jeremiah Estrada preached a powerful message titled According to the Prophecies. This is the first time since the time of Paul that the gift of government and apostleship is fully restored. God is setting the judges in order for one last great move before
Saturday, February 25 Greetings Friends, I would like to report to you of an absolutely wonderful outreach service we had in Winkler last night. Evangelist, Bro. Stephen Hargrave, from Indiana, USA, has come to hold us a meeting here in Steinbach, Manitoba, technically starting tomorrow. But since he
Sunday, February 12 We thank God for the wonderful week of meetings we have had in Greenville, Ohio! During the last service Sunday morning, Brother Ray said that this has been the best meeting ever! Truly, you really didn’t want to miss a service for fear of missing
January 20—22 With grateful hearts we report a precious time in the Word of God this weekend with apostle and servant of God, Sis. Elizabeth Oppel. On Friday night, we heard a salvation message that even the youngest among us were able to understand. Salvation means deliverance from the
January 20–22 We are praising the Lord for a wonderful weekend meeting with Bro. Patrick O’Shea Jr. in Benton! It was a very special time. We were deeply blessed as our beloved apostle opened our understanding to the visions of Zechariah. We had a group of saints (mostly
Friday, January 13 Continuing in the theme started last night, Who hath believed our report?, Bro. Steve opened tonight’s meeting with Matthew 28:11–15.There was a report given in this passage of scripture. The soldiers told the chief priests a story. They told about the earthquake and the angel
Sunday, January 15, AM Our final service for the weekend meeting held by Br. Henry Hildebrandt, began with one of the favorite songs of the Church of God, “The Comforter Has Come.” “Our God Is Love” was sung next, followed immediately by “Salvation Is the Sweetest Thing”, another
Sunday, January 8 Morning Service The morning service started with the children wanting to sing some songs for us. They all got up on the platform and sang a number of their favorite songs, “This Little Light of Mine,” “Roll The Gospel Chariot,” “I Have the Joy.” One
“Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” John 20:21. We have been sent to do an urgent spiritual work. The one purpose of our calling and existence is the promulgation of the everlasting gospel
What is the true Christian position on homosexuality? We say “true position” because there are different ways which those with a supposed Christian world view have responded to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Some “Christians” rant with offensive labels against homosexuals, many of whom lead wicked
Christians are to be guided by Bible admonitions, yet many are guilty of the habitual use of expressions the dictionary terms as minced oaths. These are taken from the New Century dictionary. “Gosh, golly” are softened and euphemistic forms for God. “Gee” is a minced form for Jesus.
“Many will say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye
The true minister, convinced, both by revelation and experience, that Jesus Christ alone is able to recover diseased souls, employs every effort to bring sinners into the presence of this heavenly Physician, that they may obtain of Him spiritual health and salvation. He is fully persuaded that he
Is God a means used to attain an end or is He the end for which all else is subjected to attain? Is God our servant or are we His servants? This is one great difference between true Christianity and false Christianity. Though they may outwardly do some
After a brief reminder touching some of Israel’s history, the prophet Hosea summarizes chapter twelve by highlighting both the value and necessity of the prophet in the deliverance and preservation of a people. In this place, it is the people of Israel and the prophet Moses. While Moses
No hearse, no body, and no entourage to a cemetery. The remains have been cremated. The ashes have been mixed with cement and made into an artificial reef, which is then placed in the sea. One such “cemetery” is Neptune off the coast of Florida. Corals and other
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness.” Romans 1:18. Yes, heaven is the source of wrath. It is a place of peace and joy, but these exist only on the basis of righteousness,
Where are the leaders—political or religious—with backbone today? Where are the men and women with moral convictions? While the nations are being pressured to succumb to the demands of a liberal, ungodly minority, one has to wonder. The extremely aggressive homosexual movement is piping and the nations are
Oh, the joy and privilege of knowing God! How could mortal man be more blessed? Enoch walked with God, and so sweet was their walk that God took him (Gen. 5:24)! Yet before this glorious translation, God revealed to this beloved friend–though but the seventh from Adam–things concerning
Satan’s attempt to negate God’s Word in Eden caused the fall of Adam and, subsequently, the entire human race. He attacked their faith–successfully. He’s doing the same today with multitudes and having the same success. Many of such profess to be Christians, yet their faith in the Bible,
The Corinthians were instructed to sing with the spirit and with the understanding. Christ, being unashamed, was pleased to declare the name of His Father unto His brethren according to the prophesy saying, “In the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.” To him who
We still believe in a literal hell. Hell–a place of everlasting punishment with eternal, burning flame. Although it isn’t fashionable to believe such in our “enlightened” age, we still do. The Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists have robbed hell of its eternal aspects through their concepts of
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matt. 1:21. So simple, yet so far-reaching in their message were these words spoken by the angel to Joseph regarding the birth of God’s own
Let us endeavour to realize the majesty and terror of the universal alarm on the final Judgment Day. When the dead are sleeping in the silent grave; when the living are thoughtless and unapprehensive of the grand event, or intent on other pursuits; some of them asleep in
“Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again.” John 3:7. The world in which we live is becoming more wicked with each new day. Threats of terrorism control the news headlines. Teenagers are killing their classmates and peers. Regard for the well-being of others
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Rom. 12:2. “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching
The Bible has been written that not only scholars can understand sound doctrine, but also the ordinary people. With this in mind, let us look into I Corinthians, chapter 11 and apply scriptural principles to interpreting the scriptures. One of the basic tenets in understanding the Word of
The above title may come as a surprise to some, as many people believe that all non-Catholics are Protestants. But this is not so, as we trust you will see as you read this article.
“But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” Rom. 7:23-24.
Did Jesus turn water into intoxicating wine? Did He serve alcoholic wine at the last supper? What does the evidence tell us? The Bible speaks plainly on this subject. Historical records regarding the preparation, preservation and use of wine are also clear.
“In case you miss the rapture, don’t receive the mark of the beast!” So began a tract that I once saw. Walk into nearly any Christian bookstore in the United States, and the Left Behind craze immediately seizes you. Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins have captivated the professing
Paul declares the New Testament temple to be the church. “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost…” I Cor. 6:19. “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? …for the
“Who is this antichrist? Is he the Emperor Domitian, the Gnostics, Nicolaitans, Nazareans, Cerinthians, Romish pontiffs, etc., etc.!
John Wesley Distressed! I am distressed. I know not what to do. I see what I might have done once. I might have said peremptorily and expressly, “Here I am, I and my Bible. I will not, I dare not vary from this Book either in great things
The 1960’s witnessed a social upheaval–the anti-establishment rebellion, if you will. Little did we realize what would ensue. Society has never been the same. Traditional societal norms crumbled and the gates opened wide to divorce, abortion, sexual promiscuity, gender confusion, etc. Society has paid dearly for its new-found
1. She was built by Jesus Christ. “I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matt. 16:18.
Awake, and think of where you are, and where you are going. While you are in your unconverted, unbelieving state, all your sins are unpardoned, and the wrath of God abides on you. Suppose you saw a poor creature hanging over a burning fiery furnace, by nothing but
“The wolf shall dwell with the lamb…” Isa. 11:6. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together…” Isa. 65:25. Millennialists look for a literal 1000 year reign on earth when actual wolves and lambs will dwell together. Extending our vision beyond the two popular texts quoted above, to
Today’s professing Christians are walking but a step behind the world, concerned about being too “different” or standing out too much. Plainly they are still walking “according to the course [direction] of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air,” albeit a few steps
Despite the plain, simple teachings of God’s Word on the subject of the antichrist, men continue to wrest the scriptures and picture a super human dictator who will rule the entire world, demanding all, both small and great, to receive a mark in their hand or forehead before
This poor world hardly knows what the real gospel is anymore. I unhesitatingly lay the blame for this at the door of the modern religious world. Weak, shallow, and effeminate in its fight against wrong, false religion has done more to enlarge hell than alcohol or drugs has
All unannounced and mostly undetected, there has come in modern times a new cross into popular evangelical circles. It is like the old cross, but different. The likenesses are superficial; the differences, fundamental.
“…He hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.” Acts 17:31. The period of the judgment of the
If it were not for the possibility of involving me in condemnation by remaining silent, I would refrain from writing on this subject; but since every individual is held responsible before God for the degree of light he has received, I am duty bound to perform this cheerless
This gospel trumpet is not, in its material, like other trumpets. It is not made from horn of ram or ox, nor has it been shaped in an earthly foundry. God furnished the material for this trumpet, twisted it, attuned it, bestowed it.
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings
