"ARE YOU COMPASSIONATE?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-20

ARE YOU COMPASSIONATE?




IF A REALLY DRUNK MAN CAME TO YOUR CHURCH SUNDAY, WHAT WOULD BE THE REACTION OF THE CONGREGATION? THERE WOULD PROBABLY BE TWO DIFFERENT REACTIONS. ONE IS THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE WOULD BE APPALLED THAT A DRUNK WOULD DARE SHOW UP IN THEIR CHURCH. THE OTHER IS THAT SOME OF THE PEOPLE WOULD WELCOME HIM AND MAKE HIM FEEL LOVED. WHAT WOULD YOUR REACTION BE?




WHAT IF THE MAN GOT BORN AGAIN THAT SUNDAY AND THE NEXT SUNDAY HE SHOWED UP DRUNK...

"NO DENIAL OF DEITY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-20

No Denial Of Deity




John 10:34 'Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?'



JOHN 10:30-39



Some people have tried to interpret this scripture to say that Jesus was disclaiming deity by associating Himself with the gods spoken of in Psalm 82:6. However, Jesus is not saying that He is a god only in the sense that the scriptures, spoke of men with divine authority as gods (Ex. 4:16; 7:1; 22:28; Ps. 82:1). In the verses before this, Jesus proclaimed His oneness with the Father and in His statements after this, He says that the Father is in Him and He is in the Father, making clear His claim to deity. Also, the Jews were not pacified by His answer, but they tried again to stone Him. If they would have understood...

"THE MEANING OF GREAT LOVE" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-19

THE MEANING OF GREAT LOVE




I HAVE BEEN HESITANT ABOUT WRITING THIS AS I AM CONCERNED SOME WON'T UNDERSTAND IT BUT I AM GOING TO GIVE IT A TRY.




WE KNOW WE HAVE A TRIUNE GOD, GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. ONE GOD BUT THREE PERSONALITIES. KNOWING THIS WE CAN ACCEPT JOHN 3:16 WHERE IT SAYS "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have...

"GOD'S GREAT LOVE FOR US" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-19

God's Great Love For Us




John 10:25 'Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.'



JOHN 10:24-25



There were many ways in which Jesus already revealed who He was. His miraculous works certainly revealed who He was. Jesus had also clearly revealed that He was the Christ, both in the synagogue at His hometown of Nazareth, and when speaking to the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well.

Jesus, in His pre-existent state, was in the form of God. 'In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God' (Jn. 1:1).

Jesus was God, manifest in the flesh (1 Tim. 3:16). However, Jesus did not demand or cling to His rights as God, but laid aside...

"LIVING A CHRISTIAN LIFE" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-18

LIVING A CHRISTIAN LIFE




DO YOU THINK IT IS HARD TO LIVE A CHRISTIAN LIFE? IT IS IF YOU ARE NOT GIVING ENOUGH ATTENTION TO JESUS. I KNOW THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS OUT THERE THAT CAN TEMPT US BUT WE MUST BE CAREFUL. SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT WE CHRISTIANS DON'T HAVE FUN. THAT IS NOT TRUE. I HAVE MORE FUN AT A GOOD BIBLE STUDY CLASS THAN I EVER DID AT A POKER GAME AND I HAVE MORE FUN IN CHURCH THAN I EVER DID SITTING IN A BAR DRINKING. IT IS WHERE YOU CHOOSE TO BE.

"WE MUST RECEIVE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-18

We Must Receive




Luke 13:16 'And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?'



LUKE 13:10-17



This sickness was the work of Satan - not the work of God. Jesus said it had bound her - not blessed her - for eighteen years. The teaching that says that sickness is actually a blessing in disguise, because the Lord is working His plan in one's life, is not found in scripture. As Acts 10:38 says, Jesus 'went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil,' not 'oppressed of God.'

There are 17 times in the Gospels when Jesus healed all of the sick that were present. There are 47 other times when He healed one or two...

"PROSPER AND BE IN GOOD HEALTH" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-17

PROSPER AND BE IN GOOD HEALTH




I THINK THERE ARE TWO MAJOR THINGS THAT CHRISTIANS ARE CONCERNED WITH TODAY AND THEY ARE HEALTH AND FINANCES. I KNOW NON-CHRISTIANS ARE ALSO CONCERNED BUT CHRISTIANS CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.




LET'S FIRST TAKE HEALING. THE WORD "HEALED" WAS USED 34 TIMES IN THE FOUR GOSPELS ALONE. THERE IS NOT A PLACE WHERE JESUS DID NOT HEAL PEOPLE WHEREVER HE WAS. THE ONLY PROBLEM HE HAD WAS WHEN HE WENT TO HIS...

"AVOID STRIFE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-17

Avoid Strife




Luke 12:58 'When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.'



LUKE 12:56-59



Jesus had just spoken about relationships before He gave this parable of delivering ourselves from the judge. The warning is clear that we should do everything within our power to avoid strife (Rom. 12:18). However, the consequences of failing to settle the differences are more than just physical prison or punishment.

Strife can produce spiritual and emotional prisons. James 3:16 says, 'where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every...

"GOD HEALS" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-16

GOD HEALS




IN JOHN 9:1-4 WHERE JESUS HEALED THE MAN THAT WAS BORN BLIND, PEOPLE HAVE TAKEN THIS PASSAGE TO SAY THAT GOD HAD PUT THIS ON THIS MAN TO GET SOME KIND OF GLORY OUT OF IT. YOU READ IT AND SEE WHAT YOU THINK. "(1) And as  Jesus  passed by, he saw a man which was blind from  his  bir th (2) And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? ...

"NO EXCUSES" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-07-16

No Excuses




Luke 12:48 'But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.'



LUKE 12:45-48



This verse is one of the clearest references in scripture about varying degrees of God's judgment according to the knowledge of the person who committed the sin. The whole chapter of Leviticus 4 is written to deal with sins committed in ignorance. Jesus said in John 9:41, 'If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.'

Also, Romans 5:13 says, 'sin is not imputed when there is no law.'

Paul said, in 1 Timothy...
