Take a Stand for Jesus

By Angela Wittman
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

(Philippians 1:21 KJV)

Not often, but every once in a while, God brings us to a major turning point- a great crossroads in our life. From that point we either go toward a more and more slow, lazy, and useless Christian life, or we become more and more on fire, giving our utmost for His highest- our best for His glory. -(Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest)

Dear Friends,

While reading the above selected excerpt from My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, I was reminded of how exciting it is to know, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

I can remember as a young believer praying to see God at work, so I could join Him. I would see outwardly successful "ministries," and think the Lord must truly be at work there, only to find out the work was one of human endeavor, rather than spiritual. The emphasis would not be on winning the lost to Christ, or teaching young believers Scripture; but it would be on performing a social service, and often the success of the "ministry" was more important than fidelity to Christ.

How can you discern if a work is based upon Jesus Christ or not? Learn the Word of God, and investigate the organization to see if they are faithful to Christ in both word and deed. You may think that a large crowd is an indicator that God is at work in their midst; but, this is not always so.

Often times, dear friends, God will use the least to accomplish the most.

How often have you read of a single missionary who has served God, as Jim Elliot or Amy Carmichael, and who is still remembered this day for their uncompromising service to God? Or perhaps you have read of a Christian who was martyred for their faith, and many souls came to Christ as a result of their faithful witness?

Scripture is full of examples where the LORD has used a minority to conquer a majority.

Dear Friends, are you ready to cast your all at the feet of our gracious Saviour? Are you ready to step out in faith, and to live to Christ? I pray the good Lord will quickly bring each of us to a crossroads, and may we become more on fire for Him.

I pray we will decide in our hearts this very day to cast the slow, lazy, useless Christian life behind us, and to follow and obey our Leader:

  • And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28: 18-20,KJV)

A discerning look at 'Biblical Patriarchy' and those who abuse it

By Angela Wittman While much of what Doug Phillips teaches regarding Patriarchy sounds biblical, because of the lack of practical application, his teachings are often taken to extremes. Sometimes, men just hear his vision of men always “leading,” and they become domineering and demanding, causing undue stress on the wife. I know of one family that divorced precisely because of hearing this teaching and not understanding what it really should be. Sometimes, men will try to emulate what they see in Doug Phillips, and start requiring their families to have all the same rules as the Phillips. Unfortunately, if there are no personal convictions behind the rules, they soon become extremely oppressive and smother the family. Some men just have no clue about how to “lead” their families; they just know that it’s being constantly preached at them from the pulpit. Having come from a home without a godly leader, these men need lots of practical examples. (Taken from: Doug Phillips’ Kangaroo Court

A discerning look at Ted Weiland's "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective"

By Angela Wittman I believe I have found within the Scriptures the key to what made America great, and this key can restore her to her former greatness. - Ted Weiland, ( Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution; The Christian Perspective , A couple of years ago Ted Weiland contacted me and asked if he might send me his primer on  Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective . After receiving and reviewing the primer, I decided to toss it in the trash due to the concern that Mr. Weiland was missing a foundational point - Biblical covenanting.  And after recently reviewing his work in greater detail, I believe the reformed and theonomic community should be cautious about Mr. Weiland's book and his beliefs. Due to some glaring "red flags" I encountered while researching Mr. Weiland, I've decided to write this warning and state my concerns. First of a

'Of Saving Faith'

The Westminster Confession of Faith Chapter XIV Of Saving Faith I. The grace of faith, whereby the elect are enabled to believe to the saving of their souls, [1] is the work of the Spirit of Christ in their hearts, [2] and is ordinarily wrought by the ministry of the Word, [3] by which also, and by the administration of the sacraments, and prayer, it is increased and strengthened. [4] II. By this faith, a Christian believes to be true whatsoever is revealed in the Word, for the authority of God himself speaking therein; [5] and acts differently upon that which each particular passage thereof contains; yielding obedience to the commands, [6] trembling at the threatenings, [7] and embracing the promises of God for this life, and that which is to come. [8] But the principal acts of saving faith are accepting, receiving, and resting upon Christ alone for justification, sanctification, and eternal life, by virtue of the covenant of grace. [9] III. This faith is differ

Alzheimer's Disease, Adultery and God's Word

By Angela Wittman "When B. and I realized what we're dealing with and she understood what the situation is, she said to me… 'I know what I have. I know where it's gonna take me. Tell the story. Tell the truth,'" Gasby recounted.  In January, he spoke that truth — and let cameras into his home. It's a home he shares with his wife and his girlfriend, Alex Lerner, who also has a bedroom in the house and helps with B.'s care.  Yesterday morning I happened to catch the segment  Falling in love while caring for your spouse with Alzheimer's disease   that aired on CBS This Morning. . I watched in amazement as two men whose wives had Alzheimer's Disease (one wife is now deceased) openly discussed having adulterous relationships with other women. Is this now to become a new norm? These men and women feel they shouldn't be judged, and shockingly the news anchors interviewing them seemed to agree. My father has Alzheimer's Disease and w
