Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.
God is, first of all, a God of relationships.
The revelation that from the beginning there existed a beloved Son lets us know that above all else, God desires loving relationships. That desire lies at the heart of everything God has ever done, and nothing in Creation contradicts that truth.
God Had A Son before Mary Did examines the significance and glory of the “mystery of God”, the mystery of the Son, which God kept secret from the foundation of the world until He revealed it in the person of Jesus Christ.
“When were the disciples born again?”
Every believer should know the answer to that question, for nothing is more fundamental to the gospel than what Jesus called the new birth.
If anyone on earth was born again after Jesus died, and before Pentecost, surely his disciples were – but they were not. If anyone on earth understood his purpose and doctrine after Jesus died, and before Pentecost, surely his disciples did – but they did not. After Jesus Died shows that the Bible leaves no reasonable alternative to those two conclusions.
“If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His”
We need to know who has received the Spirit of God and who has not. Otherwise, we are lost in a world of religious confusion as to who really is born of God and who is not. This is the condition that exists among believers today.
Speaking in Tongues at Spirit Baptism presents an accurate and consistent biblical explanation for speaking in tongues being the “initial evidence” of receiving the holy spirit baptism. If true, this belief radically alters the commonly accepted picture of the body of Christ, for since the baptism of the Spirit is the only means of entering the body of Christ (1Cor. 12:13) then the body of Christ would be composed only of those who have received that baptism, with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
“I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one.”
Jesus earnestly prayed that the Father would make us all one, and yet, God's people are divided by conflicting doctrines and traditions into a thousand different sects. Why?

Prepare for an adventure in faith. Topics covered (links to individual chapters):
The Right Relationship between a Pastor
and His Congregation
Tithes and Offerings is not a book about money. It is about the relationship of a pastor and his flock, both his responsibility toward them and theirs toward him. How to deal with God's money is a necessary element of the discussion, but more importantly, how are we to deal with each other?
In the big scheme of things, the issue of tithes and offerings is a minor matter, as Jesus himself said (Mt. 23:23). At the same time, if the tithes and offerings part of our spiritual life is not in order, every other part of our spiritual life is adversely affected. The truth about tithes and offerings will challenge your heart with light which, to the author's knowledge, is shining nowhere else.
Prophet to an apostate nation
Spiritual issues remain the same, from generation to generation. In this covenant, as in the old, God still offers a merciful response to the human problem of sin. The true prophets pointed to the way of the law, and God’s true ministers today are sent to point all to the way of the Spirit, the new and better covenant brought to us by God's beloved Son by which “whosoever will”, even the vilest of sinners, may receive forgiveness for his sins.
Malachi — prophet to an apostate nation includes video links to Pastor John Clark reading his translation of Malachi.
Solomon's Wisdom: The Secret Pathway to Happiness is dedicated to the young, who are precious in the sight of God and in the eyes of those who are like Him. It is not written as a substitute for the wonderful books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, but only to acquaint the young reader with some of their beauty and wisdom.
Where is Hell? And who goes there?
Can anyone escape from Hell? And is Hell the "Lake of Fire?"
What are "Gehenna" and "Tartarus?"
What the Bible really says about Hell answers these questions and many more about Hell.
Among many believers, believing that the Bible is the Word of God has become a litmus test of faith in Christ. But did God ever set that standard for us? Holy Bible, Is it the Word of God? examines this common belief by considering what the Scripture says about itself. As much reverence as is due the Bible, (and it is due a great deal of reverence), is it beyond the limit of both reason and revelation to call it the Word of God?
There are few areas of life where more harm has been inflicted on hurting souls by ministers themselves than in the turbulent and delicate area of marriage, divorce, and remarriage. Marriage and Divorce What does the Bible really say? provides a sound, biblical discussion of this important area of life.
You are hurting. You have suffered a crushing loss.
Or you have been betrayed, disappointed or misunderstood. What do you do? What do you think?
Suffering and the Saints examines Biblical stories of faith where men and women are seen doing good in desperate situations but, more than that, the reason they did good is explained. By knowing what they knew, we can do what they did, and be what they were, and receive the strength to continue in well doing.
