The Obedience of One

For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Rom. 5:19 I think possibly one of the devil’s most cunning tricks, is to make us think, “Nobody else is doing it; what difference does my obedience make?” Our...

Perfectly Joined Together

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 1 Cor. 1:10 KJV Corinth was...

If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad? But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he...

Belonging to the Body

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us,...

2019 Fast - Day Six - Giving to the Needy

We have seen in Acts 2:42 how the early church devoted their time to the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread together, and prayer. Usually when discussing the five purpose of the Church, we will drop down to verses 46-47 and add worship (which we will talk about later), but...

2019 Fast - Day Five – United in Prayer
