Following the Crowd or the Righteous Remnant?
Written by David Wise   
Sunday, 10 December 2017 16:27

It’s a common phrase in our culture today to attempt to entice someone to engage in an illicit activity to say that “everyone is doing it”. First of all, that is a very misleading statement because whatever the activity is I can guarantee you that not everyone is doing it (except for breathing). Young people, and all of us to a certain degree, have a desire to fit in and be accepted by others and particularly by our peer group. Therefore, we have a tendency to “follow the crowd” to attempt to fit in.  For the child of God, this runs diametrically opposed to the manner in which we are to conduct ourselves in our Christian walk.

Send a Revival, Start the Work in Me

During the early 1800’s it was a time of great outpouring of God’s Spirit and additions to the Baptist Church. From 1801 to 1802 AD in the churches of Kentucky, about 6,000 persons were baptized within about an 8 month period. During the same two-year period in the Kehukee Association in North Carolina, about 1,500 members were baptized into their churches. Within 18 months beginning in 1812, Elder Wilson Thompson baptized some 400 to 500 persons into Bethel Church in Missouri. In 1829, Elder John Leland wrote, “In the south part of Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, there are more than a thousand Baptist churches, now existing, which arose from that beginning" (referring to the constitution of Sandy Creek Church in North Carolina by Elders Daniel Marshall and Shubal Stearns in 1755.) This period of growth continued for many years until, unfortunately, in response to the great number of additions and baptisms, the unscriptural necessity of “missions” to continue to convert men to the church was introduced. This caused the division between the Old School, Primitive Baptists, and the New School, Missionary Baptist in the 1830’s. (numbers and quotes above are taken from Hassell’s History)

 

Here we see an amazing time of revival among the Baptist churches in America where sinners were baptized literally by “the hundreds” and even by “the thousands” within just a few years’ time, resulting in over 1,000 Baptist churches in a six-state region before the Baptist split. This should make us sincerely question, what’s the problem today where we do not see these results? Why are church memberships decreasing and churches closing their doors instead of seeing new converts to the truth and new churches being planted? The problem does not lie with the Holy Spirit Who blessed with such a profound revival during those times. God and the manifestation of the Holy Spirit is just as powerful and abundantly able to manifest such revival today as He was during this period of the 1800’s and able to bless such a revival as we read in scripture in the early days of the church (where they were also baptizing 3,000 and 5,000 people at a time, see Acts 2 & 4). God is “just the same today” and just as able as He has ever been. Therefore, the problem clearly does not lie with the God’s end of the equation but the problem lies with the church.

Jehovah-Jireh - The Lord Will Provide
Written by David Wise   
Wednesday, 08 November 2017 21:00

“And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-Jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.” – Gen. 22:14

 

Abraham had been called by God to offer his son, Isaac, as a burnt offering upon a mount in Moriah. Abraham was faithful to God’s command and was willing to sacrifice Isaac, but the angel of God intervened to prevent him from going through with that particular act. In the place of Isaac, God provided a sacrifice for Abraham to offer instead, in the form of a ram caught in a thicket. In response to such a miraculous intervention of God’s providence, Abraham named this place “Jehovah-Jireh” which means “the Lord will provide or the Lord has seen”. If we examine our lives, I believe that we will also see these Jehovah-Jireh memorials of not just providential blessings but the ultimate Jehovah-Jireh of the substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ on our behalf.

A Note on Hugh Hefner's Passing
Written by Ben Winslett   
Thursday, 28 September 2017 13:51

The irony of life. On one hand, my Facebook newsfeed was full of tributes to and news articles about Hugh Hefner. On the other hand, there were four different news stories from the various television stations I follow about child pornography arrests in Alabama. Don't think these two are unrelated.

 

Mr Hefner's magazine made pornography mainstream and accepted. Once mainstream, as sin always does, pornography degraded into more and more graphic forms of sensual media, including the exploitation of children. Today, indecent material is one of the most consumed types of content on the internet and is directly linked to human trafficking. Millions of young men have introduced this rotting cancer into their hearts, sometimes giving themselves over to a vice which will plague them until death. Marriages have been destroyed. Respect lost. Ministries ruined. Innocents abused. The Church handicapped. This is the legacy of Hugh Hefner. He helped open Pandora's Box.

 

As a son, husband, and father of two precious girls, I find this disgusting and infuriating. I lament that such a godless man was able to propagate such wickedness in society, an evil now so predominant that we will never fully heal from it. His life is one to be mourned, and not celebrated.

 

"Him (Jesus) God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly...And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead." - Acts 10:40&42
