DESCRIPTION OF THE JUDGEMENT

The sobering words of a song which is often sung are these: “There’s a Great Day coming, a Great Day coming, There’s a Great Day coming by and by.” The renown statesman Daniel Webster, upon being asked for the most sobering thought he ever had, replied: “To stand before God at judgment.” Indeed, this ought …

The Lord’s Church

INADEQUATE HARBORS

With a name like “Fair Havens,” the captain of a ship would think it to be a good harbor in which to dock in order to take shelter from the difficulties of the sea. However, as it turned out, Fair Havens was not fair at all! Even the captain of the ship which carried Apostle …

Your Year In Review

“I saw my whole life pass before me” are often the words of individuals who had a close call with death. Such a “life in review” is an amazing phenomena of the human mind (although, no doubt, only the major aspects of one’s life spring forth). As you stand, not at the end of your …
