May 23 …do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of temptation in the wilderness. — Hebrews 3:8

The Wrath of the Lamb

I am sure that in the great day of the Second Coming, there will be millions who will cry, "Oh, God, have mercy upon me; oh, Lord, help me." But my friends, it will be too late. It will be everlastingly too late for the door of grace will now be irrevocably shut. There will be no time for repentance then. There will be no tomorrow. There will only be the endless ages of eternity without God and without hope. People will see that the Son of... More
May 22 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. Books were opened. — Revelation 20:12

The Great Day of Judgment

At the time of the Second Coming, many will wake up on that day ignoring Christ, as they have ignored Him for years, and then suddenly, without warning, unexpectedly, there shall come a sound that will chill the blood of every unbeliever, but will cause God's own to leap with joy. It will be the sound of a trumpet, as the Scripture says. It will be a sound that will be heard around the world. Then suddenly there shall appear in the heavens... More
May 21 Concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. — Matthew 24:36

Fanatics and the Second Coming

It is unfortunately true that there have been some in the lunatic fringe who have dwelt continuously upon the doctrine of the Second Coming and brought it into disrepute. There have been others who have ignored it completely, and still more who have distorted and perverted it. And yet it remains an inescapable and ineluctable fact that Jesus Christ will come again. Over 300 passages in the New Testament alone testify that Christ will come... More
May 20 God is faithful, and by Him you were called to the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. — 1 Corinthians 1:9

Kept Through All These Years

When I look back at my life, what amazes me is that, throughout all these long and sometimes difficult years, Christ has been with me, He has never forsaken me; He has kept me in the way everlasting. I am amazed, considering how weak I am, that I have not been totally overwhelmed by temptation and sin. I have seen others who have fallen by the wayside. I thank God that He has kept me through these years. Why? "I have prayed for you that your... More
May 19 My little children, I am writing these things to you, so that you do not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the Righteous One. — 1 John 2:1

A Much Needed Advocate

Satan is the accuser of the brethren. Even as he appeared before God accusing Job, he accuses us of all manner of sins. All our iniquities and all our transgressions are picked up by this malignant spirit and hurled against us in utter condemnation before God's Throne. Who shall plead our case? Where is the advocate for our defense? Not only does Satan accuse us, but all about us are unbelievers who claim we do not live up to the ideals we... More
May 18 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness. — 1 John 5:19

Energy for Good or Evil

The ungodly world is energized, unknowingly in most cases, by Satan. Too often, the world under that energizing force accomplishes more than many Christians do. This has given rise to the belief among many, especially among some young people, that Satan is actually able to do more for them than God. This is a great shame. Christians have not believed enough and have not called upon God for great things nor have they demonstrated the might and... More
May 17 Do not yield your members to sin as instruments of unrighteousness, but yield yourselves to God, as those who are alive from the dead, and your bodies to God as instruments of righteousness. — Romans 6:13

The Monster of the Old Nature

There is a little couplet that I like so much, but it contains a good word—forgotten by many today—the word "mien" (pronounced "mean"). It means "countenance" or appearance. Listen to the couplet: Vice is a monster of such horrible mien, that to be hated it needs but to be seen. But too oft, grown familiar with its face, first we endure, then we embrace. Familiarity with the face of the monster of vice is the very essence... More
