The Triple Cure

(Read Part 1) When we think about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the world, we are instantly forced to travel the road north from Bethlehem to Jerusalem. There, we can stand and gaze through tears of both sorrow and joy at a lonely hill called Calvary. There, with the eyes of faith, we see Jesus not as the eternal child in the arms of His mother, but as the Christ of Calvary. A moment’s thought about what happened there [...]

Christ is with Us

There was a night nearly 2,000 years ago in which a little city south of Jerusalem became the scene of the greatest miracle in the history of the universe. Whatever unusual things have ever transpired, none of them can compare to the intersection of humanity and divinity which took place in that little town. What was that miracle? The answer is found in the statement of Matthew, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His [...]

Joyous Participation—Bright Anticipation

(Read Part 1) This was the miracle about which the angel spoke when he said concerning Mary, And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins. (Matt. 1:21) In the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, deity touched humanity and, from that moment on, no person can doubt the love of God. The love of God was forever presented to man in the coming, the life, the death, the [...]

A Grateful Heart

There are three main holidays which we will be celebrating in these coming days. Each one of them bears a particular message that we will find to be important to us and to the world in our time. The first of these is Thanksgiving. In a world of indignation, resentment, hatred, ungratefulness, the word thanksgiving seems like an anomaly. Nevertheless, the attitude of mind which is best described by the word thanksgiving is advocated for us many times in the Word of God. [...]

A Dispensational Discourse with Cory Marsh

By PAUL J. SCHARF, M.Div. Editor in Chief Editor’s Note: Providentially, through the process of contributing to the new book called Forged from Reformation, I have become familiar with Cory Marsh, who also contributed to the book and served as its copy editor. My interactions with him led to this interview, for which I am most grateful. Marsh is a young professor, but his thoughts on the subject of dispensationalism are many—and they are profound. I believe that you will enjoy learning about [...]

Reflections on the Life of Robert L. Thomas, Th.D.

Robert L. Thomas, Th.D. (June 4, 1928–Sept. 6, 2017) The New Testament puts heavy emphasis on using the mind as the principal avenue to Christian growth.[1] Dr. Robert L. Thomas modeled this truth in his own life and ministry in the Word of God. Throughout his teaching ministry (1959–2008) he applied his brilliant, God-given mind to Bible study, research, writing, and teaching. That career culminated in December 2014 with Dr. John MacArthur announcing the awarding of professor emeritus status to Dr. Thomas [...]

Remembering Two Great Teachers

Two great dispensational seminary teachers entered the presence of the Lord this past week—Dr. Stanley Toussaint and Dr. Robert Thomas. Dr. Toussaint went to be with Christ on Tuesday morning. He served at Dallas Theological Seminary from 1960 to 2012. On Wednesday morning, Dr. Thomas went to heaven. He served at The Master's Seminary from its founding in 1987 until 2008, having previously taught for 28 years at Talbot Theological Seminary. I never had the privilege of meeting either of these men personally [...]
