When Good Marriages Go Bad

Why Good Marriages Go Bad I have witnessed many marriages I believed to be good, go bad—filled with rancor, immorality, divorce, and the like. What a far cry from the wedding day, when the bride and groom believed there were no difficulties they could not conquer with love — and they fully expected to live happily ever after! In my observation, several root causes surface after marriage, some of which could have been anticipated before the “I do’s” were said. Love—or what passes for love—often blinds us to the realities of who a potential spouse really is. So what are … Read More >

What Mean These Stones?

The Dedicatory Sermon of The Moody Church It would appear that almost from the beginning of history man has perpetuated the memory of his heroes and his epoch-making events by piling together stones. We can trace the custom in the Bible as far back as Genesis twenty-eight. You will remember that we find recorded there the story of Jacob’s wonderful vision of God in which God promised divine protection and provision. Jacob took the stones of that place and made a pillar, and anointing it with oil he called the name of it Bethel—the house of God. That was indeed … Read More >

Cleaving To The Lord

Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he sould go as far as Antioch. Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.” —Acts 11:22-23 The background and context of these verses is intensely interesting. Some years had elapsed since the glorious Pentecostal outpouring when the work of grace began in the city of Jerusalem. Our blessed Lord had instructed His disciples to begin … Read More >

The Satisfied Life

Unto the tribe of Levi, Moses gave not any inheritance. The Lord God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them” (Joshua 13:33). The first verse of Joshua 13 begins with the Lord’s reminder to Joshua, “there remains yet very much land to be possessed.” We have seen how true that is in relation to the spiritual experience of us all. We remind ourselves that possession of the land by Israel was by lot. In other words, God determined the precise area which each tribe was to occupy, and each was responsible for applying the principles … Read More >

How To Make A Success Of The Christian Life

Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. Who, when he came, and had seen the Grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.”—Acts 11:22-23 I don’t know how many of you have clearly in mind the background of these verses but some years had elapsed since the glorious Pentecostal outpouring when the work of grace began in the city of Jerusalem.

What Mean These Stones?

Digest of the message given by Pastor Wiersbe on “Jubilee Sunday,” November 9, 1975, that commemorated the fiftieth anniversary of the dedication of the church buildings. “When your children shall ask their fathers in time to come, saying, What mean these stones? Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over this Jordan on dry land.”—Joshua 4:21–22 Fifty years ago, when these buildings were dedicated, the pastor, Dr. P.W. Philpott, preached from this text. I have no idea what he said; some of you no doubt will remember. But the same word that was … Read More >

Are There Generational Sins And Curses?

God’s holiness is unmatched. He responds to sin not only with grace, but also with holy judgment. When we observe the nature of sin and punishment in the Old Testament, the prophets record that God treats sin harshly. Sin affects more than merely the perpetrator, it spills over into the community, especially the family. Thus, God speaks of visiting and punishing sins to the third and fourth generation (Exodus 20:5, Numbers 14:18, Lamentations 5:7). Achan and his family’s punishment is one extraordinary example of God’s tenacity for purity, but it should not be considered as a normal … Read More >

The Inheritance Of The Tribes And The Story Of Othniel And Achsah

We come now to a portion of the Book of Joshua which, while it would richly repay careful and minute examination, we must pass over cursorily because of the nature of these messages. In chapters 15 to 19 we have the account of the division of the land west of the Jordan among the nine and one-half tribes that had not chosen to remain in the country of Bashan and the land of Gilead on the east side of the river, as had the two and one-half tribes, who found there such fine accommodation for pasturing their great herds of … Read More >

Celebrating Victory

We have been studying from the book of Joshua the principles of Christian victory, release from the bondage of failure and misery in the kingdom of Satan, through the blood of the Cross, and through the Lamb that was slain. This deliverance led us out through the Red Sea, out from the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of God. But, alas, in our Christian life we have been far too long on the wilderness journey. There we have known in a measure the presence of God and His victory, but we have known defeats and failures. Many have crossed … Read More >

Mixed Marriages

Preface “Bill will attend his church and I’ll go to mine.” “We’ll work it out as we go along.” “We truly love each other, and love conquers all.” These are some of the carefully chosen phrases used to launch a mixed marriage. But actual living proves the statements to be false. The irrefutable fact is that divorce occurs three times as often in mixed [faith] marriages as in marriages between members of the same faith. The thrill of loving and of being loved temporarily minimizes all obstacles to a mixed marriage. The enchanting ecstasy of marriage plans … Read More >
