MISSING THE KINGDOM OF GOD

MISSING THE KINGDOM OF GOD

by Bill Elliff April 08, 2024

Has the kingdom of God come near you? You’ve heard of Christ, seen someone in whom Christ dwelled, passed by a church on the corner, or have a Bible that a grandmother gave you years ago. Perhaps you even sit in a church every Sunday, but you have never surrendered to Christ and entered His kingdom. You never acknowledged your need and turned to Christ in faith to save you. You merely let the kingdom merely “come near.”

HAVE YOU REJECTED GOD'S PURPOSE?

HAVE YOU REJECTED GOD'S PURPOSE?

by Bill Elliff April 05, 2024

There are some tragic sentences in life that we say or are said about us. But there is none more fatal than this statement about the religious Pharisees and lawyers in Jesus’ day: “They rejected God’s purpose for themselves.”

DEAD OR ALIVE?

DEAD OR ALIVE?

by Bill Elliff March 19, 2024

You will never be the same if you are a new man in Christ. You can sin (and will sin because of the temptations around you, the work of the devil, and the weakness of your humanity), but here is the truth: YOU DON’T HAVE TO SIN ANYMORE! You are no longer a slave to sin as a ruler, but you are a slave to Christ and His grace.

ARE YOU IN ADAM OR IN CHRIST?

ARE YOU IN ADAM OR IN CHRIST?

by Bill Elliff March 18, 2024

If you are in Christ, you are forgiven! You are justified before God! You are standing before God with peace facing Him. You stand in a state of grace (and forever will). All of this has been accomplished totally and completely by God the Father and His precious Son.

THE WONDERFUL, DEFINING COMING OF CHRIST

THE WONDERFUL, DEFINING COMING OF CHRIST

by Bill Elliff December 12, 2023

... But just as beautiful and glorious for the believer, it was the opposite for those who would not believe in Jesus. To all who reject Him, His coming would lead to an undeniable and inescapable judgment for their sins. Christ’s coming would make way for salvation but would also be the instrument to bring the final reckoning upon rebellious men.

ARE YOU JOYFUL?

ARE YOU JOYFUL?

by Bill Elliff November 28, 2023

Like Isaiah, the true believer in Jesus Christ has an outer garment and inner change; they will never take off. They are wrapped up in robes of rightness or righteousness.

THE LIGHT YOU CANNOT DO WITHOUT

by Bill Elliff November 24, 2023

And then, have you, in humility, realized your need for a Savior to deliver you from the darkness? Have you turned to Him and cried out for the deliverance that only He can give? And have you trusted in His promise that “all who call upon the name of the Lord will be saved?”

THE RISE AND FALL OF NATIONS AND GOD’S PERSONAL CONCERN FOR EACH MAN AND WOMAN, BOY AND GIRL

THE RISE AND FALL OF NATIONS AND GOD’S PERSONAL CONCERN FOR EACH MAN AND WOMAN, BOY AND GIRL

by Bill Elliff November 13, 2023

Isaiah is filled with prophecies about Israel and also her enemies. Whole nations are described, and their rise or fall is ultimately dependent upon God. He lifts up one and puts down another, all according to His ultimate agenda and their responses to Him.

THE RESCUING HAND OF GOD

THE RESCUING HAND OF GOD

by Bill Elliff September 25, 2023

More numerous than you know are the moments when God has pulled you out of the pit by His compassion. Rescued you because of the pure grace of His mercy. Delivered you because of previous promises He has made, perhaps even to your own parents. Shown kindness to you that you did not deserve simply because of His great love and eternal purposes.

A SETTLED LIFE OF SEPARATION

A SETTLED LIFE OF SEPARATION

by Bill Elliff September 20, 2023

The beginning pages of Genesis give us the operating principles upon which God and man were to function. God, in mercy, provided a garden with every possible goodness. He intended for man to enjoy this perfect environment but, most importantly, to enjoy God’s continual presence. God and man and wife would walk together.

HE HIMSELF

HE HIMSELF

by Bill Elliff August 21, 2023

It is our great problem and the reason for all that is evil in this world. Man chose to sin from the beginning—to run independently from the God who made him. And the results have been catastrophic. No one could deliver us from the foundational problem that separates us from God … except One.

OUR CONSTANT INTERCESSOR AND FRIEND

OUR CONSTANT INTERCESSOR AND FRIEND

by Bill Elliff July 31, 2023

You have a tragic, irreconcilable problem. You are a sinner (and so are we all). We came into this world separated from God, sinners by birth. But we are also sinners by choice. And our sin bears the ultimate result: it separates us from God. This is the worst penalty, for we were designed to live on God, and it’s impossible to find life without Him.
