The Satanic Attack on Sacred Music
What Can We Do in the Face of Anarchy? - Aug. 5
     What can God’s people do in this present world, in the midst of lawlessness and apostasy? God has told us exactly what to do.
    
Don’t be surprised
    God’s Word prophesies the condition of the world and of professing Christianity, and this is exactly what we see in our day.
    “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded..

Apostasy in Baptist Churches in the Early 20th Century- Aug. 4
     The following is excerpted from The Discipling Church: The Church That Will Stand until Jesus Comes, www.wayoflife.org.
    
By the end of the 19th century, the Baptist churches in America were very weak and had stopped practicing strict discipline. Writing in 1907, Henry Vedder observed,
    “
There has been a decline in the discipline maintained among Baptist churches, as serious as it is great. In the majority of churches in the cities, exclusions are practically unknown except for some notorious wickedness. Even in cases of notorious.. Read More

David in the Millennial Kingdom - Aug. 3
    “Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same” (Eze. 44:1-3).
    “Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days” (Hos. 3:5).

     BOGUS CHARISMATIC PROPHECIES OF TRUMP ELECTION (Friday Church News Notes, July 30, 2021, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Dozens of charismatic “prophets” stirred up a hornet’s nest of political passion by claiming that Donald Trump is God’s man to make America great again and that he would be re-elected in 2020. At a Trump rally in Las Vegas in Oct. 2020, Denise Goulet told the crowd, “The Lord spoke to me and said, ‘I am going to give your president a second wind.’” Charisma magazine editor Stephen Strange predicted that Trump would top 400 electors. Kat Kerr said that God caught her up to heaven and told her that Trump would.. Read More

Tight Clothing and Modesty - July 28
     Recently I commented on an advertisement for the Getty’s Sing 2019 worship conference that showed a woman dancing in super tight pants that look like they were painted on. I described this woman’s clothing as “incredibly immodest” (“The Getty’s Big Tent Christianity,” Friday Church News Notes, June 28, 2019). A reader commented, “I would definitely agree that her outfit was immodest, but I would not say that it was ‘incredibly immodest.” He also said that his 18-year-old daughter, who is a Getty fan, “will probably say that the outfit is not immodest.”
    These two comments are intimately related. It has been said that what the parents allow in moderation, the children will take to the extreme. I replied to this man as follows: “Anyone who thinks that is not incredibly immodest is more influenced by the world than the Word of God. Independent Baptist.. Read More

The Ruins of Jericho Confirm the Biblical Account - July 27
     I have stood on the ruins of ancient Jericho multiple times. It is an amazing experience. From here, you can see the location of a great many biblical events. A great viewing place is the restaurant near the monastery on the Mt. of Temptation west of Jericho. A Chinese-built cable car facilitates the journey. You can see across the plains of Jordan to ancient Moab, where Moses viewed the land from Mt. Nebo (De. 34:1) and where he died and was buried (De. 34:5-6) and where Israel encamped and prepared for the invasion of.. Read More

Christ’s Return Emphasized in the Epistles - July 20
    The return of Jesus Christ is emphasized greatly in the New Testament epistles. It is a major theme of the Gospels, as well as the writings of Paul, James, Peter, John, and Jude. Obviously it is God’s will that the return of Christ be a major theme of the preaching and teaching in every church, yet I have heard of a great number of so-called Bible-believing churches that rarely touch on this subject and I have communicated with large numbers of professing Christians who know..

Man’s Fall and Redemption- July 15
     The following is excerpted from John Phillips’ commentary on Philippians 2:
    
When God said, "Let us make man," He added, "in our image, after our likeness" (Genesis 1:26). Man was created to be as much like God as a creature could be. God endowed man with intellect, emotions, and will; He gave him a body so that he could see, smell, taste, hear, and feel. Man’s physical life was to be under the control of his mental, emotional, and volitional powers. Then God gave him something that set him apart from the animal creation: He gave him a spirit.
    Man’s body made him world-conscious and enabled him to live in a physical environment. His soul made him self-conscious - aware that he was a distinct individual with attributes, nature, personality, potential responsibilities, and..

Burrowing Owl - July 13
     The little burrowing owl is the only owl that lives in holes in the ground. Their native habitat is the deserts, plains, and fields of western North and South America and Florida. They use abandoned holes dug by prairie-dogs, squirrels, armadillos, or other animals. They also dig their own holes, especially in Florida where the ground is soft and sandy. The holes dug by the owls themselves.. Read More

..we need church membership because each church is a body.
Church Membership - July 7
    The doctrine of church membership is found in the book of Acts, beginning with the first church.
    In Acts 1:15 we see that the names of the members were kept.
    In Acts 2:41, those that were saved on the day of Pentecost were “added unto them.”
    This is church membership.
    Four Reasons for Church Membership
    Church membership is a matter of practicality, like many other things in the assembly. If a church does not have membership, how can it know who is in the church and who is out?

William Barclay

Beware of William Barclay - July 6
     The following is excerpted from The Modern Bible Version Hall of Shame.
    1. William Barclay (1907-1978) was a professor at Glasgow University for 28 years and a popular British Bible expositor who wrote several influential books on the Bible. He also published his own translation of the New Testament in 1969.
    2. He denied the infallibility of the Scripture, the virgin birth, deity, and substitutionary atonement of Christ, the eternality of Hell, and other cardinal Bible doctrines, and promoted the critical modernistic views of the Old Testament. He interpreted the miracles of Christ in a naturalistic fashion, claiming, for example, that Jesus did not actually walk on the water..

     I’M NOT JOINING THE FRETTERS (Friday Church News Notes, July 2, 2021, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The Bible instructs God’s people not to fret about the wicked. “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Ps. 27:1-4).
