Remember Lot’s Wife (2003)

Lot's wife is an example of a person who appeared to be part of God's family, but was never freed from sin. Jesus warned that such people would not be saved (John 8). But what kept Lot's wife from making a full surrender to God? When Lot's wife looked back at Sodom and Gomorrah, she...

Walking in the Father’s Love

Entire sanctification is perfect love towards God and mankind. It is God's love completely filling the heart and soul. But, as the story of the prodigal son shows, this love cannot exist without entire consecration to God. The prodigal son's older brother exemplifies the danger of a Christian who is not sanctified. Though the older...

The Father’s Compassion

The story of the prodigal son expresses the Father's compassion and power. When a sinner repents, the Father immediately forgives and restores him. He doesn't leave His son in dirty clothes, working with the servants. He doesn't require His son to sit in time-out, or drag out the past, or earn his way back into...

Come Out of the Pig Pen

Jesus told a story of a lost, or prodigal, son. This son took his father's wealth, squandered it in riotous living, and ended up feeding pigs while he starved. This pictures the case of every sinner. All have taken what God has given, squandered it on anything and everything except service for God, and found...

Can Revival Be Prayed Down? (2004)

Every revival in the history of the Christian Church came in response to prayer. When an individual is baptized in the Holy Spirit, revival–whether small or large–will always follow. But, as long as we're content with life as we know it, revival will not come. Because if we're content, we will never pray for this...

Heaven’s Makeover

Jesus said, “No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” This new birth is heaven's makeover of the heart and soul. However, many professing Christians today have never been born again. They have varying degrees of outward morality and religion. But, they've never undergone that great change of heart. So...

False Salvation Exposed

False Salvation Exposed

Jesus said, “Out of the heart of man proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, and blasphemies.” God's salvation is to cure this root of evil: to change an evil heart into a clean, pure, holy heart. While there is only one true salvation, there are many systems that offer a false salvation. Several of these include...

One Thing You Lack

Do you believe in Jesus, but have no assurance that you're saved? If so, it almost always boils down to one thing that you're unwilling to yield to God. For example, Jesus said to the rich young ruler, “One thing you lack. Go, sell everything you have, and give to the poor, and you will...

More than Good News

The gospel is more than good news that I just “believe.” Modern teachers let down both the requirements and benefits of the gospel. To them, salvation is from God's wrath, and nothing else. And, to them, a verbal confession of belief will save you. But will this really save you from hell? What did the...
