America’s Hope

(Read Part 2) America's Heartbreak (cont.) A major fault of socialism is that it depends on two ugly traits of human nature to make it grow: envy and covetousness. The have nots must be stirred to demand that government act to give them their part of what is owned by the haves regardless of merit or work. Well, it is all rather sad, is it not? It really comes down to a question of how long we are going to be able [...]

America’s Heartbreak

(Read Part 1) America's Heartbreak The late Dr. Francis Schaeffer, one of the most able thinkers and writers among evangelicals, says in his book, Death in the City: “It is a horrible thing for a man like myself to look back and see my country and my culture go down the drain in my own lifetime.” He continued to say that 30 to 40 years ago our culture was built on the Christian consensus—and yet now we are in an absolute minority! [...]

America’s Heritage

“God has spared us in liberty and freedom to this hour, but . . .” As America enters a new century she has a decision to make. She can return to the Biblical principles her Founders supported, or move even further away from her Christian heritage. On that decision rests the future of our nation. The Bible declares, Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD. (Ps. 33:12) His continued blessing can be expected only when we as a people acknowledge His [...]

The Blessing of God upon a Nation

(Read Part 1) The New Plan What then was instituted was DIVISION. God, Himself, divided the world into a whole set of new political entities which He called nations. Speaking of one segment of the family of Noah, the Bible says, From these the coastland peoples of the Gentiles were separated into their lands, everyone according to his language, according to their families, into their nations. (Gen. 10:5) These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their languages, [...]

A Call to National Righteousness

Our little systems have their day They have their day and cease to be. They are but broken lights of thee And thou, oh Lord, art more than they. (Alfred, Lord Tennyson, “In Memorium”)[1] In our generation, we have said goodbye to dozens of nations. They have dropped into the dust bin of history. This now common expression is more and more often used to refer to well-known nations of the past and present. They were once prosperous, influential, happy and apparently [...]

Returning to My Ministry Roots

Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it. (Col. 4:17) The last two years have been a time of returning to my ministry roots—in the IFCA International.[1] Back in the summer of 2015 (shortly before I first heard of the idea of Dispensational Publishing House), I was invited to speak at the Wisconsin IFCA Regional in October of that year, where I delivered five messages on the book of Daniel, applying the prophet’s [...]

The Blood of Jesus

(Read Part 1) Foreshadowing Christ "The blood of bulls and goats" (Heb. 9:13; 10:4) was shed on a million occasions in the Old Testament for man the sinner. Now, what we must remember is, that the blood shed by the innocent animals in the Old Testament not only became a covering for sin before the days of the earthly ministry of Christ, but also, it became a foreshadowing of what God would do as we move through history. It foresaw what would take [...]
