  1. Wisdom’s Voice, Part 1

    “Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city. She speaks her words: “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge.” (Prov 1:20-22) How long, you naïve ones will you prefer to remain in ignorance, Ignorance of what? Why the truth, the complete truth not simply some of the basic truths, the “milk of the Word”, but...

    Philippians 3:10 - "That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection." Jesus said to Martha, "I am the resurrection and the life" (John 11:25). There is something different between saying you have faith and then being pressed into a tight corner and proving that you have faith. If you believe, it will be done according to your faith. (Mark 11:24) May God give us the "fellowship of His sufferings" (Philippians 3:10) that when we see a person afflicted with cancer, we will pray and...
  3. Holy and Sacred Law

    Is the Bible the only holy book? Are books of other religions just as sacred to a Mason? The belief Masons hold is there are many sacred and holy books, and sadly they view them all as equal.

    Awake and arise, for you have slumbered long enough on the bed of disappointment, rejection, pain, and abandonment. He will cause you to want to live, to declare the glory of the Lord your God in the land of this living. Cast aside everything that holds you back, whether it is a broken dream, a broken vision, a broken promise. He has seen the tears, the pain, and the confusion, but He promises you in His Word that He makes a way where there seems to be no way. CROSS OVER TO THE BLESSED...
  5. STRONGHOLDS

    2 Corinthians 10:4 - "The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to tear down strongholds." Wherever a stronghold exists, it is a demonically induced pattern of thinking. Specifically, it is a "house made of thoughts" which has become a dwelling place for satanic activity. The strongholds upon which demons rely consist of our own thoughts, attitudes, and opinions which are in agreement with evil. The strongholds that affect us most...
  6. A Few Good Men

    To be a Mason I must be good. Am I good? What makes us good?
  7. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 4

    B.--If death is the penalty for sin, has not mankind paid that penalty in full when dead? Might he not be released from death the moment after dying, yet fully meet the demand of justice? A.--"The wages of sin is death,"--not dying, but "death" -- FOREVER. As well say we might say that a man condemned to imprisonment for life, had received the full penalty in the act of going into prison, as that man received his penalty in the act of going into death. It was not the penalty merely to go...
  8. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 3

    B.--I begin to see a harmony and beauty connected with the introduction of evil which I had not suspected. May we not reasonably say that God could not have displayed those qualities of his nature so attractive to us--mercy and pity--nor could his great love have been made so apparent had not the occasion for their exercise been presented by man's necessities? A.--I am glad that you have suggested this thought. It is true, that though "the Lord is very pitiful and of tender mercy," yet...
  9. Eternal Liberty & Freedom

    Viva la revolution! Our founder’s desires were perfectly professed, and like many prior calls for reform invoked God’s name, claiming his approval and backing of their actions. These men were attempting to obtain basic, fundamental rights they believed every citizen of the world is entitled to. To secure these rights, our founders looked to secede from King George. In this regard our independence was won with a civil war, and not a true revolution. No matter the nature or form of rebellion...
  10. A Way of Life

    A WAY OF LIFE… That is how Masons describe what Freemasonry is about. As simple as it sounds on the surface, it becomes increasingly complicated the more I dig into the society of Free and Accepted Masons. On Tuesday nights I attend a local chess club. It is far from a fraternity, yet it is social, offers entertainment and comradery. Yet I would never call a chess club or chess itself a way of life, not even if I played as well as the great Magnus Carlson. As an IT professional, I don’t...
  11. RIDING THE WIND OF ADVERSITY

    "Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint." - Isaiah 40:31 Eagles love the storm. The eagle uses the storm's wind to lift it higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagles use the raging storm to lift him above the clouds. We can use the storms of life to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably. The Word and the Spirit...
  12. Seeking Communion - December 28, 2019

    For those who are faint in their heart be of good cheer for the Lord has overcome all that surrounds you. Remember He said, "lo, I am with you always, even until the end of time." (Matthew 28:20) Draw Him into the situation that is trying to draw you into the valley of fear. As you draw Him in His faith within you (Galatians 2:20) rises up, fear will bow down and diminish. Let the faith that He has given you -- let that gift be opened to a greater degree. Release the faith that is within...
  13. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 2

    A third brother now joins the discussion, Brother C. C.--Brother A., may I interrupt you here to ask, Why, if it was proper and wise that Adam should have a trial under the most favorable of circumstances, as a perfect man, should not all his posterity have a similarly favorable trial? We all know that we are born with both mental and physical ailments and imperfections. Why did not God give us all as good a chance as Adam? A.--If you or I had been in Adam's place, we would have done...
  14. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 1

    "To make all see, what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God." "Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:--that in the dispensation of the fullness of times, he might gather together in one, all things in Christ." (Eph. 1:8, and 3:4, 5, 9) In this particular study the Pastor chose to approach the...

    Ezekiel 26:9 - "He will pound your walls with battering rams and demolish your towers with sledgehammers." The battering rams and the sledgehammers are a representation of the Word of God, and the force behind it. As you begin to declare the Word of God in 2020 like a battering ram, with the backing of Heaven, you will break through the gates and walls that have kept you from breakthrough. In the story of King Jehoash and the prophet Elisha (2Kings 13:14-19), the prophet told the king to...
