The origins of the Christian practice of baptism are not fully understood, but apparently the Pharisees took offense at rumors of Christ baptizing followers. Much of the reason for their offense may have been because the religious leaders and temple workers of Jesus' day considered a very similar rite to be their exclusive privilege — the rite of priestly cleansing.

Jesus admonishes us to carefully consider the lives of His messengers (Matthew 7:15–20). William Miller's character, message, and faithfulness amidst persecution testify on his behalf as a man sent by God. In this generation, we must arouse to our need to prepare for Jesus' soon return and awake to...

My prayer life was in a lukewarm state. I really didn’t understand Christ-focused prayers. Every time I prayed, I would always bring my requests to God and ask Him to fix the problems I presented. The list was always endless with demands that I wanted God to do. I was praying for worthwhile things but in the wrong...

What’s Better Than Baptism by the Holy Spirit?

When we compare the early church with the present-day church, we observe that the early church must have been predominantly made up of spiritual people. The book of Acts shows that this was the reason for their quick and positive development. They had no other aid. But they had the Holy Spirit. We have excellent aids in abundance. But we have a deficiency of…

I remember dealing with an element of demonic proportions when my very good friend’s son was literally demon-possessed. I had never experienced anything like it. In the midst of my homeschooling routine, she suddenly called one day, and I could hear the demons screeching through her son in the background, as she begged...

I asked God what was on His heart for my first day in our new town. God told me to go to a large church in town, introduce myself as new in the area, and tell them that He had given me urgency to call the people of this church and community to a revival with Him.

Throughout history God has chosen individuals who lived simple lives, often in poverty, to do great things for Him. These men walked with God, yet the weight of responsibility rested upon them. They felt the greatness of the task before them. There was no self-confidence. Only self-distrust.

There are gangsters in my neighborhood. Before you get concerned for my safety, these are harmless to humans and are rarely covert in their operations. No, these gangsters operate in the open using audible communication. It is unfortunate I don’t speak crow because I think it would be enjoyable to hear them strategize.

The much-needed Laodicean message contained no commendations for faithfulness, only warnings to wake up and repent. Much of the Christian world is in the same lukewarm state as the Laodiceans. Some of us have become self-sufficient instead of looking to Christ to meet our needs. Others are spiritually indifferent, caught up in the mere rounds of tradition.

Would you be willing to listen to someone who could tell you the future with perfect accuracy? Well, you can! The root word of “Revelation” is reveal. The English word “revelation” comes from the Greek apokalupsis, which means to “unveil” or “uncover.” The very title of the book suggests that it can be understood. Incidentally, this is the only book in the Bible that comes with a blessing for…

Like the Samaritan woman, God's people have been married before, distracted by many alternate gods. Possibly we are living unfaithfully. Before there can be a marriage to our Savior, our lives must be changed.

We all know that there are certain qualities about each one of us that we do not like, as well as parts of us that are unlovable. Without Christ in us, there is no power to subdue the enemy that is within us (Romans 7:23-25). Therefore, the struggle is one of faith.
