Why We're Here

It's estimated there are almost three billion people in our generation who are still unreached with the Gospel Message of Salvation through faith alone in Jesus Christ our Lord. And it is estimated that there will be over one billion people online in the world by the end of the year. In North America alone, nearly 2/3 of the adults who use the Internet will use it for faith related matters. Just as the Roman roads opened up the known world during the New Testament times to the spread of the Gospel, today the Internet is providing a way to take the Gospel around the world in a very effective way. Our vision is to use this new Roman road to help Christians around the world grow in their faith and increase their knowledge and understanding of the Bible.

God's Gift of Grace to Us!

Everyone has sinned, everyone has fallen short of the glory of God. All people at one point or another have done something or thought something they're not proud of, something that they would not like anyone else to know about, let alone God. God looks not only at our deeds, but also the desires and motives behind those deeds. And that's what Salvation is all about. We are separated from God because of our sin nature. Moreover, there are no works we can perform, which can earn our way into Heaven. Any sin no matter how small in thought or deed is punishable by Hell. In addition, good works no matter how big the sacrifice, cannot erase or remove past sin.

But the good news is God wants to have a relationship with you. And God's salvation is a free gift given by faith. And He gave you a way to receive forgiveness of all sins past, present and future! And that is His free gift of grace. We all know that we are not perfect. Though try as we might, no one can achieve perfection all or even most of the time, and God knows that! And that's why He gave us the gift of salvation which is the forgiveness of sins. As the Bible says "For by grace you are saved through faith; and not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, Not by works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

God Promises His Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment - (James 2:13)

My mercy will overrule judgment.

Reading Notes

This scripture really speaks about the heart of a person and where they stand in Christ Jesus our Lord. Those who show no mercy or compassion toward others, have demonstrated, by their actions that they themselves have never responded to God's grace. Their hearts show, they have never accepted the great mercy which God gives us through grace, by faith in Christ. This passage is part of a section of passages in which James is speaking on favoritism. However, in the larger context they are part of his discussion of the attitudes of one's heart and how it drives actions people display to the world around them. Our behavior finds its drive from the attitudes of the heart. For those who have rejected Jesus and the grace He alone provides, their hearts are focused on the things of this world. They show no grace and no mercy toward others, because they themselves do not understand God's forgiveness.

This is contrasted with those who have accepted God's mercy. Those who are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus our Lord. These are those who know what it is to receive mercy and compassion. And with salvation comes the indwelling of the Holy Spirit who changes our hearts from the inside out through the process of sanctification. Sanctification is the process carried out by God, where our hearts of stone are replaced with a new heart of flesh. A heart sensitive to the things of God and the need for salvation in the lives of others. Therefore the person whose life is characterized by mercy because of their salvation is ready for the Day of Judgment. Because of Jesus, and the grace alone He provides, we will escape the judgment and wrath of God to come. This is because Jesus has already paid for our sins. It's the forgiveness of our sins through Jesus, given by the grace of God, which in turn shows God's mercy has triumphed over judgment.

The Wicked Prepare Themselves for the Day of Slaughter

Bible Verse James 5:4-6

Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.


As we read through the Old Testament we see that God had given commands to all landowners. During harvest time they were not to harvest the corners of their fields. In addition, they were only allowed to go through their field one time. Landowners could not go through their fields a second or third time to ensure they got every last piece of the harvest. God had done this for the overall good of society. God's commands created a mechanism whereby the poor and needy by their own labor could go into the fields and harvest food to feed themselves and their families. However the wicked landowners in their greed, those who were in rebellion against God were taking everything for themselves and ignoring God's commandments. And if that wasn't enough when the harvesters finished the landowner would defraud them. The landowners would do what they could in order to avoid paying their wages for the day. Both of these acts were expressly forbidden by God, especially in light that God had given them the land. The land was not theirs to begin with, God had taken it from the Canaanites and given it to Israel.

If this wasn't bad enough the landowners were bribing the court system to steal what little land the poor had. They did so in order to gain more for themselves as they lived extravagant lifestyles. And what James tells them through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit is at the end, the wicked landowners are like lambs heading to the slaughter. God tells them in reality they're just fattening themselves for the day of slaughter. A time when God will pour out His wrath against them. In their wicked actions the landowners had murdered the just. And James is not referring to actual murder, but rather by defrauding the poor, they brought about the destruction of peoples lives. James is therefore reminding them that God not only sees their actions, but God also knows the wicked intent of their hearts. In addition the landowners were ignorant to the fact that the prayers of the innocent come up before God asking for justice. And we know from passages elsewhere in the New Testament that the prayers of the saints come up before the throne of God.

Jesus Equips Us for Ministry through Faith

Ephesians 4:11-15

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head-Christ.

Display the Grace of Christ

Luke 6:36-38

Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.

In Everything Give Thanks

1st Thessalonians 5:15-19

See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit.

Stay Strong in Christ

Colossians 3:14-17

But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

We Have Eternal Life in Christ

Romans 3:22-23, 6:23, 10:11-13, 10:9

For there is no difference; for all have sinned and [all] fall short of the glory of God, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. ...for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Displaying God's Grace in Us

Titus 2:11-14

For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

The Blessed Hope of Every Believer

1st Thessalonians 4:12-18

But I would not have you to be ignorant brethren concerning them which are asleep that you sorrow not. By the word of the Lord we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not preceed those who are asleep. The Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel with the trump of God: the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Changed in the Twinkling of an Eye

1st Corinthians 15:51-54

Behold I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep but we shall all be changed In a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption and this mortal shall have put on immortality then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written Death is swallowed up in victory.

Seek Peace Through Christ - (Proverbs 17:1)

Better is a dry morsel with quietness, Than a house full of feasting with strife.

Reading Notes

The phrase "dry morsel" was a common idiom used to mean very little food. What this verse is telling us is it's better to have peace with a little food, than strife, with lots to eat. As Christians the Bible encourages us to do everything within our power maintain a good relationship with the people around us, walking in humility, honesty and love through Christ Jesus our Lord. We are not to purposely create strife for the sake of argument, nor create conflict and division because of a self-righteous attitude. Instead, whenever possible, we are to live at peace with one another.

This means our actions should always be in the best interested of others, not only in their day to day lives, but also looking toward their eternal good as well. This means the welfare of others comes before the fulfilling of our emotions or desires. This is because we are called to love and pray for those who hate us by Jesus Himself. Remembering that God bestows His blessings on those who are both saved and unsaved and we are to do the same. Because we do not know how many may come to faith in Christ because of our actions alone. Many people will observe our behavior, and we cannot know who will come to faith as a result of what they see without us ever speaking a word to them.

Year of Psalms

The Lord Will Not Count the Righteous Among the Wicked - (Psalm 28:3-5)

Do not take me away with the wicked And with the workers of iniquity, Who speak peace to their neighbors, But evil is in their hearts. Give them according to their deeds, And according to the wickedness of their endeavors; Give them according to the work of their hands; Render to them what they deserve. Because they do not regard the works of the Lord, Nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them And not build them up.

Reading Notes

David in these verses is appealing to God's mercy and justice. David is surrounded by the wicked and he knows the punishment for sin is death. Therefore David is asking God to deliver him from death and the fate of the wicked. He is asking for God's salvation to be applied to him, so that he is not counted among the wicked, because he cannot save himself. Moreover, David is also asking God to direct his steps, to lead him in the paths the Lord has chosen. Dear child of God, we have to always remember God looks at the condition of our hearts, not just the things we say and do. We have to understand that God is not like us, He is not fooled by what we say, He does not have to accept what we say as justification for our actions. Moreover, God is not constrained by political correctness when we lie to one another regarding our true intentions. God looks at the true intentions and motives of our hearts.

God judges us, not only for our actions, but also on the motives, intentions and desires behind those actions. And this is what David is speaking about in these passages. David knows and understands that one day all people great and small will acknowledge God as their Creator and give Him glory. That all people great and small will stand before the Lord and one day give an account and face the judgment of God. For those who placed their faith in Christ, we will not face the judgment of God, but rather the Bema Seat of Christ. At the Bema Seat of Christ each believer will be judged based on the motives and desires behind their actions. We will receive reward for those things we did out of our love for Jesus, our love for God, our love for the lost and those in need around us. However, all those who are found without Jesus, have no relationship with God. Therefore, they face Hell and their judgment will be what they sought in life, which is eternal separation from God. We have to remember mankind's rebellion and enmity with God, means nothing in the face of God's sovereignty, omnipotence and judgment.
