    The Purpose of Exile By Philip Cottraux Assyria. The terror of the ancient world is still infamous for their extreme brutality. When the Assyrians would conquer a city, they were known to have “child fires,” lining up the city’s children and forcing the parents to watch while they burned them en masse. They would flay survivors of defeated armies alive and adorn the walls of Nineveh with the skins. Inside, the streets were decorated with “head pyramids,” large piles of decapitated heads of conquered people. Lines of dismembered limbs were strewn from building to building, adorning the city like gruesome...
  • Holy Wrath...Hell pt 2

    For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.(Deuteronomy 32:22-24)The doctrine of the Divine judgment of sinners is terrible to truly contemplate. So terrible that many evangelicals are retreating from it...
  • How The Lake Of Fire Glorifies God...Hell pt 1

    Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. ( Psalm 7:9-13)The Judeo/Christian teaching of a God of Holy wrath has by and large been rejected...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | September 15, 2018 | Philip Cottraux
    The Price Lot Paid By Philip Cottraux Because of a conflict between their herdsmen, Abraham and his nephew Lot decided to part ways. The grazing land just wasn’t big enough for both tribes. Lot could choose where to go; in Genesis 13:9, Abraham said is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. Then lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that...
  • The Gospel Upholds God's Law...Romans 1-3 pt 10

    Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.(Romans 3:28-31)The good news of God’s willingness to justify sinners who put all of their faith in Jesus, is not based upon their adherence to the “deeds of the Law”. But this gospel of Jesus, God’s...

    And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood, and made us to be a kingdom, priests serving his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Look! He is coming with the clouds...(Rev. 1:5-7, NRSV). In this third and final installment of the Church of the Firstborn series (see Parts I and II), I will be diving into another messianic mystery tucked away in the OT. There...
  • Nothing To Brag About...romans 1-3 pt 9

    Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.(Romans 3:27-28)Why is it that God requires faith and not works? Why is it that God’s salvation is only accessible to those who believe in His gospel ? Part of the answer to this question is in the quote above. We have seen that man is so bankrupt, he is so estranged from God and corrupted, that there is no way that he can save himself. He...
  • The Pre-Trib Rapture is Solid Biblical Truth. Here's Why.

    As I've shared before, most of my life I believed in what is known as the “post-trib rapture.”  “Why should we escape?” I would ask. (In today's vernacular, it might sound like, “Why are we such special snowflakes?”) While I turned this part of me off for several years, I still believed the Church would be tested during the seven-year tribulation, face the mark of the beast, have to endure to the end to be saved, and should prepare to hide in the woods with extra jugs of water, first-aid supplies, and well-preserved food. (The movie The Road illustrates what...
  • Mercy And Truth...Romans 1-3 pt 8

    Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God . To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.(Romans 3:24-26)God is Holy. That means that He has an infinite aversion to sin, evil, sinners, and all that is false. He utterly hates rebellion, unbelief, immorality, in short, all forms of sin....
  • God Has Set forth...Romans 1-3 pt 7

    Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;(Romans 3:24-25)How can fallen, sinful, rebellious man ever be reconciled to the Infinite, personal and Holy God ? The solution to the problem as described by the apostle Paul cannot possibly come from man himself. All have sinned and are coming short of the glory of God. The gospel is that God himself, has given us a...

    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (Romans 3:23-24)The subject of Romans chapter three has been thus far, All. All of us are under a Divine sentence of condemnation, All of us like sheep have gone astray from God. There are no exceptions, not even Israel, All of us have defected from God. Yet to that same ALL, God has provided a gift, even the very Righteousness that He demands of us, in the person of Jesus Christ. The gift is...

    The Jerusalem Post ^ | September 2, 2018 | Mike Evans
    On Monday, August 27, the White House hosted a dinner in honor of evangelical leadership. It was truly on the level of a State dinner. I attended and spoke briefly at that dinner, but when I saw the media reports about the evening, I could not believe what I was reading. As a journalist for more than 40 years, I can only describe what I read as fake news. President Trump allowed us to speak that evening. It was mostly ministers praying, preaching and praising God for His blessings. The only words I can use to describe the dinner at...

  • Every Mouth Will Be Stopped...Romans 1-3 pt 5

    Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.(Romans 3: 19-20)We come to the conclusion of the teaching of Romans 1-3, which is the universality of sin. All are condemned as sinners by the Holy God. The references cited in the indictment all come from the law. Paul’s logic is that...

The indictment consists of quotations from the Hebrew scriptures, especially Psalms and Isaiah. The...
