Three Men Died At Calvary

“And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.” Three men died the day of Jesus’s crucifixion. (1st ) Was JesusBeaten, humiliated, and unjustly convicted, Jesus Christ the Son of God in human flesh, gave his life and shed his blood as a payment for the sin debt of the entire world. There will never be a more important event in human history than the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. As a lamb sacrificed for sin upon the altar of the OT saints, Jesus willingly laid down his life and shed his innocent blood for the sins of all men upon a cross. And whether or not a man believes in Jesus Christ, his offering has made it possible for any man to be saved by simply trusting in Jesus, but unfortunately not all men will. (2nd) Unrepentant thief. Though dying himself he chose to die in his sin, rejecting the salvation of Christ, ending up in Hell. Why? (John 3:36) “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.(3rd) Repentant thief. He, rather than die in his sin, wisely chose to seek the forgiveness and help of Christ by simply repenting and asking to be saved; and because of his faith, Jesus said to unto him “today shalt thou be with me in Paradise.”  You see, its never too late to get saved while you are still alive, but once you die there is no more opportunity or hope of it. May we all like the repentant thief, have the faith and wisdom to seek salvation while there is still hope!

Salvation Is Through Christ Alone

(Rom. 14:11-12) “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” One day all men will stand in judgment before God, but there will be a special “great white throne judgment”(Rev. 20:11-15) set aside for the unsaved where God himself will explain to the unsaved that salvation apart from trusting in Jesus Christ is impossible. Different types of arguments and excuses will be given there: 1) Arguments by the Heathen Man . He believes that because he has never heard of Jesus he has an excuse, but God will show him that he once had the truth but rejected it. For all men came off  Noah’s Ark, unfortunately those that forsook God damned the next generations to follow by replacing God with the idols and the lies of men. So, no matter where man is found on earth he is guilty of rejecting God’s way of salvation for his own. That’s why Missions is so important today, fo…

Giving Thanks In Everything

(1Thess. 5:18) “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” It has been said that the happiest people in the world are those that are thankful. They are happy because they have learned the secret of trusting in the Lord in every circumstance of life. If we by faith come to the place where we believe that everything happens for a purpose (Rom. 8:28), then we will be able to thank the Lord even when the bad times come our way. For some reason, some believers have bought into the idea that if we are faithful then only good things will happen to us, but God wants us to know that both good and bad happen to all men alike. The difference between those who are thankful and those who are not, is simply in their ability to understand God’s Word, believe it, and trust in it no matter what. Thank God for all the good things that happen to us in this life, but also thank God that when the bad times do come we have the promises of God’s Word to comfort u…

What Does God Expect Of Fathers

(Deut. 6:5-7) “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children…” Before Israel went in to posses the Promised Land, the Lord warned Israel’s leadership of the importance of the above commandments. 1) To Love God first above all. God wanted the Fathers of Israel to give first place in the hearts to Him. Why?  Because He knew how quickly they would forget Him if they didn’t. If the fathers forget so will the family; therefore God commanded them to make God the Lord of their heart, soul, and might. 2) To Know the Word of God.  How can a father teach to his family that which he knows not himself? How sad it is when the leadership of the home does not know or study what they are to live and teach. Therefore, God expects fathers to study the Word so that the Word directs the home and not the world. 3) To Tea…
