The Rich Young Ruler

The story of the rich young ruler is a well-known story in the Bible, and no wonder, it is found in the gospels of Matthew (chapter 19), Mark (chapter 10) and Luke (chapter 18). Each of the gospels tell this scene with a small difference, but we see a complete picture of the discourse between this young man and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Preaching to the spirits in prison

Many Christians get confused with the verse in 1 Peter 3:19, which at first glance suggests that the Lord Jesus Christ went to hades to preach to those there. In fact, this has become some kind of doctrine among many, that when the Lord died and was buried, He went to preach to the people who were already in hades. This is one example of taking a verse completely out of context and interpreting by our own minds, which is not a good thing to do with the Word of God.

The thief on the cross

Luke 23:39-43 – ‘and one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

This scene on the cross is such an amazing display of the grace of God. This is exactly why God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to come down to the earth and give His life for everyone, in order that they may be saved, no matter how bad of good people are.

Speaking in Tongues

The reader may seem very interested in the title of this small article. Why is there such a big fuss among church gatherings about the gift of tongues? Does the gift of tongues still exist today, or can someone claim to have the gift of speaking in tongues? Why is the idea of speaking in tongues taking such an important place in Christianity today? I will attempt to explain in some detail the purpose of the gift of tongues that was introduced in the early church in Acts 2, and why it continued for some years, and why it should not have such a preeminent place among us today.

The Unavoidable Preacher

Taken from a gospel tract published by Bible Truth Publishers in the USA.

Many preachers have given up the old ideas about the total corruption of mankind. People are not often told that they are guilty sinners before a holy God. Such sermons are looked on as relics of the Dark Ages. There is, however, one old school preacher, and he speaks today as boldly as ever. He is not popular, though the world is his parish, and he travels over every part of the globe and speaks in every language under the sun. He visits the poor, calls on the rich, and preaches to people of every religion and many of no religion.

Storm Warning

Taken from a gospel tract published by Bible Truth Publishers in the USA.

One evening, many years ago, before the days of radio, Captain Oldrey and the crew of his ship, the Hyacinth, were sailing toward Barbados, a tropical island on the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea. Before retiring for the evening, he spent a little time on deck simply admiring the beauty of the evening. He remarked to one of his crew that it was the finest weather he had seen in that climate.

The horizon was perfectly clear — not a cloud in the sky. There was nothing visible above deck to suggest that the weather might soon change.

Gain or Loss

This meditation is taken from the Good Seed daily Bible calendar, published by GBV in Germany.

What things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yes indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord. Philippians 3:7.8

Wisdom

Taken from the Good Seed daily calendar, published by GBV in Germany.

Oh, that they were wise, that they understand this, that they would consider their latter end! Deuteronomy 32:29.

The lack of wisdom among the people of Israel at that time makes us think of the dreadful ignorance that is widespread in the world today. It is not a matter of a lack of intelligence, but rather ignorance as to what everyone really should know.

The mechanism of the heavens

This meditation is taken from the Good Seed daily calendar published by GBV in Germany.

Listen to this, o Job; stand still and consider the wondrous works of God. Do you know when God dispatches them, and causes the light of his cloud to shine? …With him, have you spread out the skies, strong as a cast metal mirror?He hangs the earth on nothing. Job 37:14.15.18; 26:7.
