Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of Hosts!

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of ...

God’s Holiness, Supreme over Reality, over Fact, over Truth

For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the LORD pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth, in the seas and all deeps. He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from his storehouses. —Psalm 135:5-7 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, ...

The Greatest Dilemma: God is Just, and You are Not

"Nobody's perfect". Invariably everybody says that old adage, everybody knows it. In some sense "Nobody's perfect" has become the credo of most people. But isn't it interesting that nobody's worried about it? We take that statement for granted far too much that we totally miss the implications that lie therein. Dear beloved, the most frightening thing we can consider about ourselves as fleshly, human beings is that we are not perfect. ...

Two Ways to Die: in Sin, or in Faith. Which One Are You Taking?

The ultimate statistic for all men everywhere concerns not social issues or economic paradigms, but it has to do with what is beyond the here and now, the consummation of all being, death. Ten out of ten people die. And there are only two ways for any person to die. Whether it is in sin or in faith. How about you dear reader? The "ifs" or the "whens" of death are inevitable things. The "how" is ...

“Though He Slay Me, Yet Will I Trust Him”

We live in a sad and dying world. Though as Christians we are promised joy and peace that surpasses understanding, many, many moments in our lives will we experience trials in great severities. Many times will we cry out, "Why God? Why me? Why this? Why now?" And in many moments we are overcome with grief and depression, our hope and joy is lost. But should it be so? Is not that which Scripture tells of ...

What Have I Done to Deserve to Suffering?

One of the marks of the Christian life is suffering, but is it not true that the problem of suffering is as much considered outside of the Christian world as it is amongst Christians? Prior to conversion I am sure the question "What have I done to deserve this?" has rolled out of your lips at least once in your time. We set ourselves in labor to demand fairness and justice from our fellow man, ...

Called to Suffer with Him, Die with Him and be Raised with Him

Is there purpose in suffering? If there is, what is the ultimate purpose of suffering? What is the overarching reason for suffering in the lives of believers? Is conformity to the image of the Lord Christ Jesus the ultimate end? As glorious a grace it is for God to be patient with His people to work death in them that spiritual life in them may be given greater life, I'm convinced that it pales in comparison ...

“Nevertheless”: The Supreme Prayer of Faith

Surely there's not a man that lived on this earth who is remotely close to being worthy to be given relief in this life than the Lord Jesus Christ, yet even to the Son, God said "no". How would you fare, dear reader, when confronted with indescribable pain and suffering? Does your faith, your theology and your character allow you to be prepared to accept such affliction purposed by God? Or would you, like many miserable ...
