The Ancient Path
Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, "We will not walk in it." - Jeremiah 6:16
New here? Start with one of these:
Christ died FOR us, not INSTEAD of us
Christ came TO us, and died FOR us, but He did not die INSTEAD of us. He did not die on the cross so that we didn’t have to die; but rather so that we also (by partaking of His Spirit, grace, and power) COULD die...
This is a great problem in the church today. We have so many who have not even begun to leave the land of Egypt (I mean leave the flesh, the first birth, the natural man), and yet they talk and sing of and celebrate the blessings...
Grace Should Reign
Grace is a gift of God’s power, a measure of His life, light, and Spirit, a seed of His heavenly kingdom, that is given to men in order to grow in them, to work in them, to leaven them and change them entirely, removing every form...
The Appearings of Christ
The Lord appears in a flash of inward light, which, for at least a moment, forces us to see something of His truth, and something of our lie; something of His life, and something our death; something of His purity, and something of our vileness; something...
Two Births in Man
Here is your condition. This is what you currently feel, and what everyone can feel if they are willing to turn to the Voice that reproves them. You feel something stirring and moving in you that is good, and pure, and living, and is excited to...
Walk in the Spirit - pt. 1

On the one hand, man finds in himself an incredible force of deceptive desire arising from his flesh and aiming at the world.

Obedience Must Keep Pace with Knowledge
2 weeks ago
Spiritual growth is indeed a work of the Spirit, but there are many ways that we can work against the Spirit, and perhaps the most common have to do with the HUNDREDS of “little ways” that our heart or will does not humbly and sincerely submit to and obey the measure of spiritual understanding that we already have. I mean, the various ways that our obedience does not keep pace with our knowledge.
Words and the Word
As strange as it sounds, one of the greatest hindrances to truly knowing the Lord can be our familiarity with biblical words and spiritual concepts. There was a time when the Lord had to show me that, though I was very acquainted with scriptural words, I was a stranger to the spiritual realities that these words described or pointed to.
Some sites and services I recommend:
In my opinion, there is no other collection of Christian writings that more accurately communicates or more powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light. - John 12:26
