   In the 13th chapter of Matthew, Jesus gives a parable of wheat and tares. Matthew 13:24-30 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went …

  How can a person know for sure if they have been saved? Is there a complicated formula, or set of rules to observe, or adhere to, for a person to know with certainty they have been saved? I see this question come up quite often, and there seems to be a good deal of …

Similarities between Paul’s shipwreck, and our Salvation.

I noticed several similarities between Paul’s shipwreck recorded in Acts chapter 27, and salvation that comes through our Lord Jesus, and faith in him.  Paul in this story, is being taken by soldiers with other prisoners, to be judged before Caesar. All men and women, small and great, will be brought before God, to be …

How are we born again?

How is a person born again? Is it the same as being saved? I typed in this question and found many answers, but few of them even mentioned the answer the Holy Bible gives. As a matter of fact, most seemed to avoid this answer all together. Jesus told Nicodemus, unless a man be born …

Why did Jesus not destroy us all?

The Passover and Easter season are approaching, and I have been thinking more on the Lord’s suffering and crucifixion.  The Holy Bible indicates that Jesus was beaten for our healing, and crucified for our salvation.  1 Peter 2:24 24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being …

The wages of sin is Death.

Daily we sin, and daily we are forgiven. Daily we fall, and daily we are lifted up. Daily we come short of the mark, and daily we are helped and guided toward it. Lets remember that each day, a born again Christian, is washed clean by the blood of our Lord Jesus. None of us …
