I’m enjoying this excellent biography, the Life and Campaigns of Stonewall Jackson, written by his Chaplain, Robert L. Dabney (a Confederate States Army chaplain, and reformed Theologian). The following are some excerpts, as well as my thoughts and applications. Chapter IV – Life in Lexington Jackson now professes faith in Christ and has been baptized.
As an LAPD officer, on 11/14/91, I was involved in an active shooting at a church. But I did not respond to a shooting, nor was I attending that Church (I was an unregenerate heathen). But by God’s sovereign decree, unknowingly at that time, the Lord used me to be at that Church at the
Last night’s storm caused the skies to explode in glory. The Lord’s thunder and the concussion sounded as if our windows shattered. Our tornado warning system increased to a “warning” sounding off advising everyone to “seek shelter immediately.” I think our dogs understood that 😉 because they did their best to break into the bedroom.
Like many others, over the last two years, my wife & I have lost money that we’ve invested in retirement accounts, etcetera. But we know the Lord decrees these things, perhaps as His inevitable judgment. As this worsens, sadly, people with no hope will sinfully commit suicide. But by faith, we do not complain but
This is me and Jackson our Jackass. We share a lot of similarities, except I am much worse, I’m a sinner. A sinner chosen by God, and saved by King Jesus who chose to ride on a Donkey in His triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. “Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is
This is an exposition of Hebrews 6:13-20. • Vs 13-18 will be ‘God’s Infallible Purpose in Christ’ & the doctrine of Impassability • Vs 19-20 will be ‘Christ, as the Anchor of our soul & salvation & the Man behind the second curtain In vs 17 he said “So when God desired to show more
The next three verses (all one passage) are probably one of the most controversial in the NT. This passage has been interpreted by some, to say they can lose their salvation. I was once upon a time of that belief, but by Gods grace I no longer am. Vs 4-6 “For it is impossible, in
In this sermon I did an exposition of Hebrews chapter 5:1-10. The text includes, but is not limited to, the role of Levitical Priests, a warning to Jews, and Jesus as the Great High Priest. I then push back against bringing nationalism into the church. That we must think like Christians, and less like Americans.
Though not intentionally this was the shortest sermon I’ve ever preached, so in ‘this video’ I also included the call to worship, communion, Gloria Patri, and the benediction. In this sermon I did an exposition of the first nine verses of chapter 2. • In vs 1-4 is ‘The duty to not neglect our salvation’•
Is country music icon Dolly Parton a false convert? Fact is, if an unregenerate person or an unrepentant Christian sit in a healthy Biblical Church, they will either be offended and leave, be convicted saved and converted, and/or be convicted repent and be restored. It appears Dolly does not have that type of Church. Let’s
Disclaimer” When I stated “I am so against our Government.” I meant to say I am against our government’s tyranny, or when they go against our Constitution, or His Church. Therefore, I am not anti-government. This video includes two Catechism questions (with commentary), and then an exposition of the Twenty-fourth Psalm.
In this Psalm we will see the graphic imagery of the pain and anguish that Jesus succumbed to. One scholar said “Approach this Psalm with the utmost solemnity and reverence, because you have probably never stood on holier ground before. You have come to Golgotha where the Good Shepherd is giving His life for the
These last several days have been a difficult time for my wife, myself, our children, and many family members. Our 23-month-old grandson was admitted into a hospital and was listed in grave condition. Sadly, today Lake succumbed to his medical distress. I am not writing this to invite you to my pity party. Instead, I
Since a Deputy served me with a court order at this location, I usually spend no more than 5 minutes here. But today multiple long lines were pointing in various directions, and so I labored longer than normal. Some willingly engaged me in conversation, and one lady responded to the Gospel. By the grace of
