Temptation is Not for Our Good

 Satan does not bring temptation our way to bring the best out of us. His design is our destruction. God gives us His Word to enable us to overcome those things designed to destroy us. It is not God’s will that we fall into temptation but that we are completely victorious over it.

The Deity of Jesus the Christ (Part 2)


Deity of Christ in John 1:18

No one has ever seen God; the only son, Deity Himself, who lies upon His Father's breast, has made him known. (John 1:18; Williams New Testament)

No man has ever seen God. But the only Son (Jesus) is God. He is very close to the Father (God). And the Son has shown us what God is like. (John 1:18; Easy to Read Version)

The Deity of Jesus the Christ (Part 1)



The Trinity in the Old Testament

The Trinity in the Old Testament

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is ONE LORD. (Deuteronomy 6:4)

“It is often used by Jews and Unitarians to deny the three persons of the Godhead. The Hebrew word ‘echod’ (one), however, excludes forever such a denial, for it means a compound unity. The Hebrew has another word which expresses exactly what Jews and Unitarians, who reject the three persons in the Godhead, believe. It is the word ‘yochid’; this has the meaning of a single one.”
Arno C. Gaebelein, The Annotated Bible: The Pentateuch (New York: Publication office “Our hope”, 1913), p. 397

Kenneth S. Wuest on Faith and Prayer

 Now faith is the title deed of things hoped for, the proof of things which are not being seen (Hebrews 11:1; The New Testament: An Expanded Translation by Kenneth S. Wuest)

"The act of exercising true faith as one prays, or as one leans on the resources of God, is itself the title deed or evidence of the sure answer to our prayer or the unfailing source of the divine supply. It is God’s guarantee in advance that we already possess the things asked for." - Kenneth S. Wuest, Wuest's Word Studies in the Greek New Testament : For the English Reader, Volume 3 (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1997, c1984).

Gordon Lindsay on Corporate Prayer

"In God’s great plan for his church He takes into consideration that its members, working together, can accomplish much more than individuals who work independently, each according to his own particular inclination. If the church is to accomplish its great purpose, its individual members must work in proper relation to each other. When the members of the body of Christ pray together in absolute agreement, their prayers become irresistible and will cause even mountains to move before them." Gordon Lindsay, Prayer that Moves Mountains, pp. 74, 75
