The Cunning of the Serpent

[Counterfeit currency would have little chance of passing if it did not bear somewhat close resemblance to the genuine; and the more close this resemblance is, the better chance it has to pass undetected. Of course, this is well known to the adversary of our souls; so in order to beguile the unwary, he masks his most subtle deceptions with the appearance of orthodoxy. Pastor Clifford Nixon exposes this cunning artifice. This article is just as relevant today as it was when it was written in 1933, over 80 years ago.] 

Thanks Be To God

Once again, here in the United States, we come to the time of year when pause and take the time to give thanks to God for His bountiful blessings. During this Thanksgiving holiday, we want to let all our friends of the FEA know how thankful we are to the Lord for your friendship, fellowship, and support. God has sustained this ministry for almost 90 years, and He has used friends and co-laborers to encourage and strengthen us in His work. We thank you, and we trust you will take the time this week to thank the Lord for His goodness and lovingkindness.

A Living Faith in a Faithless World

While recently teaching through Ecclesiastes in our midweek service, I was impressed with how Solomon’s Spirit-wrought wisdom enabled him to make such practical observations and applications. They are for us today as well (Rom. 15:4).

The Cost of Contending for the Faith

Abel contended at the cost of his life. Elijah was pursued, fed by ravens, and forced to share the widow’s meagre fare while his life hung in balance because he contended for God’s truth versus Baalism. Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, was imprisoned and suffered attempts upon his life through starvation, being cast into a pit of quicksand and in other ways because he contended for the faith. Contending caused Daniel’s three companions to be cast into the burning fiery furnace. Daniel was placed in the lions’ den for the same reason.

 

Salvation—Great News!

Being a Christian means having a relationship—a relationship with the Creator of the heavens and the earth, a relationship with the One who loves us so much that He died for us though we did not deserve it nor even desire it. The most important decision any individual will ever make is the decision to receive God’s grace gift of eternal life through faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ or to reject this precious gift. Those who accept this gift will become new people. Those who reject it will continue to be “dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1).
