The Walk Of The Spirit

The Walk Of The Spirit

August 30, 2021

Jesus told the Jewish Leader Nicodemus, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the spirit is spirit.” In this famous verse, we learn that the two realms, flesh and the spirit, are separate and mutually exclusive. The book of Galatians further elaborate for us that “the flesh lusts against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh;” that these two are contrary, the one to the other, so that a person cannot do what he would.
 
In this teaching by Jon Touchstone we learn more about the two realities - the walk of the spirit versus the walk of the flesh. And though the born-again Christian is filled with holy spirit at the time he accepts Christ, scripture tells us that he must choose to live by that spirit. His choice will determine whether his life will manifest the Works of the Flesh or the Fruit of the Spirit.

The Pillar and Foundation of Truth

The Pillar and Foundation of Truth

August 27, 2021

One of the refreshing qualities of the Word of God is its honesty about human nature. Just as we are burdened with our own sinfulness, so was the early church. The Corinthian Church at one time had been a growing and thriving Church, but it became mired in quarrellings and infighting. Leaders vied with one another and believers became followers of personalities rather following their spiritual head, Christ. As a result, the Church’s spiritual progress came to a grinding halt and Paul was forced to intervene and correct the situation. The fact is, this was his first order of business in 1 Corinthians.

Join us in this teaching to learn how, as told in 1 Timothy 3:15, the members of the Church should conduct themselves in God’s household, the pillar and foundation of TRUTH.

The Precious Conscience

The Precious Conscience

August 18, 2021

It’s been said, “There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience.” This is a true. The conscience is our inner witness. Each of us has one. It praises us when do right and chastises us when we don’t. it’s our most valuable commodity for our moral life. This is why we must guard our conscience with all our effort. A violated and corrupted conscience is not just burdensome. It affects our ability to see things clearly and make sound, godly judgments. Unfortunately, for any of us who has lived life for long, the conscience invariably gets bruised along the way. But this good news is this: Jesus saves to the uttermost. He is able to heal your conscience and set you back on the path of righteousness.

Proverbs: The Contrast of Wisdom and Foolishness

Proverbs: The Contrast of Wisdom and Foolishness

August 12, 2021

The Word of God tells us that Wisdom is the principal thing; so therefore, we are to get wisdom; and with all our getting, we’re to get understanding also. Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.

God’s wisdom is not far from us. God proclaims it from the rooftops. Wisdom simply requires our pursuit. We must seek her with our whole heart, or not at all. When we do, she promises to “pour out her spirit unto us.”
 
Take some time today to pursue wisdom in this vital teaching by Jon Touchstone, you will be blessed you did.

What Do Jesus Christ and Paul Revere Have in Common?

What Do Jesus Christ and Paul Revere Have in Common?

August 12, 2021

Answer: A sermon on a mount. Paul Revere’s message (“The British are coming”) was considerably shorter than Jesus’ (“The kingdom is coming”). And, while Paul’s words were significant in regard to the future of our country, they can’t compare to the timeless truths that “King” Jesus (which is how Matthew’s gospel portrays him) spoke in his “Inaugural Address” to his people, Israel.
 
Matthew 5-6-7 contain a plethora of prime principles regarding many aspects of life and godliness, including murder, adultery, divorce, helping the needy, trusting God, prayer, judging, and much more, but these God-breathed words must be understood in an administrational context. This current “administration of the Secret” was “hidden in God,” and therefore Jesus had no clue about it. Thus, everything he said (prior to his Resurrection) related to Israel, past, present, future. Don’t miss this comprehensive exposition of the first “recorded” teaching Jesus ever did.
