People of Truth

We live in a culture of lies. The devil is the father of all lies and this world is filled with a web of lies. When it comes to life in general, people expect to be told lies. We anticipate it at the car dealership, in the world of sales,... Read more →

What Are Angels?

God created the angels, just as He created humanity. But angels are an entirely different order of being than humans (Psalm 8:4–5). Human beings do not become angels after they die. Angels will never become, and never were, human beings. Angels are more powerful than we are (2 Peter 2:11).... Read more →

What Happened to the Truth?

In our world, the idea of ultimate truth—something that is true at all times in all places and has relevance for our lives—is about as extinct as the dinosaur. In fact, nearly three out of four Americans say there is no such thing as ultimate, or absolute, truth. And the... Read more →

God’s Messengers

God had His reasons for creating angels. And just like His reasons for creating you and me, those reasons spring from who God is. What can we learn from God’s holy angels? Communication Channels In the Bible, our English word “angel” translates the Hebrew word mal’ak in the Old Testament... Read more →

Becoming Truthful

“Do not lie to one another” (Colossians 3:9). A minister noticed a group of boys standing around a small stray dog. “What are you doing, boys?” “Telling lies,” said one of the boys. “The one who tells the biggest lie gets the dog.” The minister was shocked. “Why, when I... Read more →

What Angels Can’t Do

While God has delegated angels to make special pronouncements for Him, He has not given them the privilege of proclaiming the gospel message today. Why this is so, Scripture does not say. Perhaps spirit-beings who have never experienced the effects of sin would be unable to preach with understanding. Rather,... Read more →

Obeying the Truth

“You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth?” (Galatians 5:7) I don’t know if you’ve thought of it this way, but the gospel is a command. It is not a suggestion, it is not God sharing with you, it is God commanding you. The gospel calls for... Read more →

Riveted Angels

The apostle Peter describes our salvation as predicted by Old Testament prophets who spoke of “the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories” (1 Peter 1:10–12). The prophets longed to grasp this gospel more fully. But the prophets weren’t the only ones. According to Peter, the gospel of our salvation... Read more →

Way, Truth, Life

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6). Christ as The Way The idea of life being a journey is as old as human speech. In the fifth chapter of our Bibles we... Read more →

Angels To The Rescue

A number of contemporary books recount encouraging and inspiring stories of the holy angels at work in the lives of people throughout history and even today. These angels have saved the lives of Christians, provided encouragement during persecution, and helped in the conversion of non-Christians. In Celebration of Angels, we... Read more →

The Cost of Truth

“Buy truth, and do not sell it” (Proverbs 23:23). To buy the truth implies that there is a price we must pay. What sort of things must we be willing to give up?  Pride To buy the truth often means admitting that we were wrong. Therefore, we need humility when... Read more →

Unseen Friends

The Bible says that there are angels who help us. These angels are our unseen friends. The writer of Hebrews, referring to angels, asked the rhetorical question, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?” (1:14). The answer... Read more →

Truth and Love

“Speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15). Thank God there are those in the contemporary church who are determined at all costs to defend and uphold God’s revealed truth. But sometimes they are conspicuously lacking in love. When they think they smell heresy, their nose begins to twitch, their muscles... Read more →

Heaven’s Joy

“There is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents” (Luke 15:10). This chapter gives us an amazing glimpse into the joy of Heaven. This is about God’s joy, the joy of the holy angels that surround His presence, and the redeemed and glorified saints that dwell... Read more →

Truth is Liberating

“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).  A Christian friend shared several problems with me over the phone. He was particularly concerned about his frustration and anger. But talking seemed to help. The next day he sent this message to me: “After our... Read more →
