On Tongues Subsequent to Conversion

July 25, 2015


On speaking in tongues, Acts 10:44-48 states the Holy Spirit fell upon the Gentiles upon hearing the Word of God preached by Peter. That the Gentiles were speaking in tongues was the immediate evidence to the Jews that God had given the Gentiles the same gift of the Spirit as He had the Jews. It […]

Why Jesus Spoke in Parables

January 17, 2015


The doctrine of election should humble us like no other doctrine. It is evident from the following two passages that Jesus imparted life only to those to whom the Kingdom is given, as only those would have ears to hear to understand the meaning of the parables.

Comments Off on Sinners’ Gain from Christ’s Reward

Christ’s reward is not dependent upon man or any supposed freewill decision of man. What do I mean by that?

But notice what Acts 16:31-32 says after the jailer trembled and asked how he could be saved: They said, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.’ 32 And […]
