“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7
The evidence that God created everything in the universe is everywhere! The humans, the animals, the plants, the sea, the sky, the mountains, the planets, the sun, moon, and stars… the list goes on and on! And yet, many people disbelieve the fact that the universe was created by the Creator, and instead believe that everything came about by chance! What nonsense! It shows the hardness of the heart and the depravity of man. The very first words of the Bible states: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1) Let us pray that atheists and evolutionists worldwide will repent from their sins with a true heart and trust in Christ alone as their one and only Savior from their sins! Only God can change the sinner’s heart.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord. Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna! To son of David! Hosanna in highest. Hosanna to the son of David. Hosanna, this is Jesus! Blessed is He, who comes in the name of the Lord. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna to the son of David. Hosanna in the highest! Hosanna to the son of David. Hosanna this is Jesus! Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna! In the highest! Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna this is Jesus!
“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” — Psalms 136:1
Do we need God’s mercy? We wouldn’t last five minutes without it! Psalm 136, “For His mercy endureth forever,” inspired this essay by R.J. Rushdoony, published in the Chalcedon Magazine 20 years ago. God’s mercy lasts forever, he asked; how long does our mercy last? https://chalcedon.edu/magazine/for-his-mercy-endureth-forever Too many Christians think of God as if He […]
In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.
There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand:
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss –
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.
Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.
I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart –
His wounds have paid my ransom.
