JESUS (3)

It is a biblical fact, that Jesus is our salvation; we may write it: 1) in him, 2) by him, 3) through him, and 4) by means of him. One fact stands clear in the New Testament, that without Jesus there would be no salvation for even one person! As Paul wrote, with the Jew …

JESUS (2)

As I start this second article with Jesus as the subject, allow me to make a distinction in the words used to identify the second member of the Godhead, in the flesh. This is important because “seed” of the woman in Genesis, chapter three and verse fifteen, is a fleshly seed. We generally understand this, …

JESUS (1)

Jesus is the “center” of the Bible. The center fold in the Bible is the four books, which are the four accounts of the life of Jesus. Of course, there are more books in the Old Testament than there is in the New Testament. Therefore, when the word “center” is used, we are not talking …

Right off the top of your head, what are your first thoughts about Jesus? No, don’t take long, this is a “right off the top of your head” kind of test! You get no grade from me, but Jesus might be interesting in what you know “right off the top of your head.” My first …

IT WAS HERE AND IS HERE

Though the heading of this article is generic, it could refer to any event. However, to those of the Barnes congregation and those who received the bulletin sent out by the Barnes congregation, it is not generic.

GODLINESS

The word “godliness’ is a Bible word that is greatly misunderstood! This is hard to grasp as it is so important to one’s standing with God. If a person has no or only little “godliness” in their lives, they have no favorite standing with God. Of course, one of the reasons for this problem is …

OPPORTUNITY

One of things we learn from the Bible is to be ready for opportunities! You will remember Jesus comparing the “kingdom of heaven” to “ten virgins.” Here is what Jesus said: “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom” (Matt. 25:1-13). …

IN TIME OF NEED

Remember those beautiful and so comforting words of Hebrews: “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in …

HOW MANY WAYS CAN ONE BE SAVED? (4)

In the end, it does not matter at all how man answers the question under which these articles are written! Sometimes we hear of Baptist Doctrine, Methodist Doctrine, Pentecostal Doctrine, and at times someone will speak of the Church of Christ Doctrine. First, when the word “doctrine” is used, we need to keep in mind …

HOW MANY WAYS CAN ONE BE SAVED? (3)

Just how many questions are more important than those that deal with salvation? You can count on one hand with four fingers missing and get the right answer! Keep in mind the thumb is not a finger. Many people fail to understand what they are really saying when they address the subject of salvation. In …
