WHY IS IT SO FOOLISH TO REJECT THE CROSS?: To be frank, the way the question was formed in the heading presents a gross understatement. The word “foolish” is not nearly strong enough. To turn from the Cross of Christ is to turn from the only way of coming to God, the only way of having fellowship with God, and the only way of overcoming the world, the flesh, and the Devil. For one to exchange the free Grace of God, which comes to us solely by the means of the Cross, for the bondage of our own works is stupid indeed! The truth is, we have no alternative to the Cross of Christ! The Cross is God’s Way and it is His only Way. Continue Reading
PREFACE: AN ABBREVIATED FORMULA The following will possibly help us to understand the great Plan of God to a greater degree. It is as follows: • THE CROSS OF CHRIST: When we speak of the “Cross of Christ,” I would certainly hope… Continue Reading
As it regards the person who is already Saved who, in fact, has trusted the Lord for Salvation, which came by the Means of the Cross, he must come to understand that Sanctification comes from the same Source. Regrettably, it’s much more difficult for the Saint of God to place his faith exclusively in the Cross than the believing sinner who is initially coming for Salvation. Why? That’s a good question!

The only solution for sin, the only answer to sin, is the Cross of Christ Public Humiliation, especially on a worldwide basis, is a trauma that many people never get over. There is no way to describe it. When one… Continue Reading
THE DOCTRINE OF THE CROSS The material that we hope to bring you in this Chapter is the most important that you as a Believer will ever know or have presented to you. I realize that’s quite a statement, but… Continue Reading
“For sin shall not have dominion over you (the sin nature will not have dominion over us if we as Believers continue to exercise Faith in the Cross of Christ; otherwise, the sin nature most definitely will have dominion over the Believer): for you are not under the Law (means that if we try to live this life by any type of law, no matter how good that law might be in its own right, we will conclude by the sin nature having dominion over us), but under Grace (the Grace of God flows to the Believer on an unending basis only as long as the Believer exercises Faith in Christ and what He did at the Cross; Grace is merely the Goodness of God exercised by and through the Holy Spirit, and given to undeserving Saints)” (Rom. 6:14 KJV).

Armageddon will be different than any other battle that has ever been fought.
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it the Valley of Hamon-gog.
“And seven months shall the House of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.
“Yes, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, says the Lord GOD”
The “man of sin” will rue the day that he took on “God’s People and God’s Land.”
“‘And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.’” “‘For God has put in their hearts to fulfill His Will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the Words of God hall be fulfilled.’” “Now it is time for the Battle to begin. The Antichrist will marshal his forces, which quite possibly will be the greatest army the world has ever known.”
The personal holiness of Christ was more strikingly presented in the sin offering than in any of the other sacrifices. The Holy Spirit through Moses said, “It is most holy.” The sin offering, whose blood was brought into the sanctuary, symbolized Christ bearing before God the sin of the whole world. The sin offering, the blood of which was not so brought in, but its flesh was eaten by the priests, presents Christ as making His own the sins of the individual sinner who believes upon Him.
