Thank God for Warnings

Thank God for Warnings

Too often we look at the warnings of God as cause for fear. We may even resent God’s Word for limiting us or making us feel judged. For instance, many people resent the notion that God warns man about hell. They see it as a threat to their personal beliefs and sense of security. However,…

God Is Always On Time

God Is Always On Time

  During one of the times I didn’t have much money, I thought for certain I had $500 available in my checking account. I always had what I called a “float” just in case I needed it. Well, on this one particular occasion, that was all the money I had left and I had a…

Who Do You See?

Who Do You See?

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must DO what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully…

Doesn’t God Know My Heart?

Doesn’t God Know My Heart?

The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; who can know it? —Jeremiah 17:9 Yes, God does know your heart, and that’s the problem.

Where Was God When Disaster Struck?

Where Was God When Disaster Struck?

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. — 2 Chronicles 7:14   Many people are quick to point a finger when disaster strikes,…

Sentenced to Silence

Sentenced to Silence

Tolerance has become the high moral ground instead of truth. Tolerance should not be confused with consideration. We should be considerate of all, but that doesn’t mean we embrace their sin. Jesus commended the Church of Ephesus for not tolerating sin, and He condemned the Church of Thyatira for tolerating sexual vice (Rev. 2:2, 20)….

Baptism – A Requirement for Salvation?

Baptism – A Requirement for Salvation?

I have frequently heard the question, “Bill, why don’t your books state that a person must be baptized to be saved?” The reason I don’t indicate this in any of my books is because it’s not true. I actually wrote a chapter about this in my book, “What Happens When I Die?” that states just…

Accountable Before God

Accountable Before God

Many people have asked us, “What will happen to the man who lives in the remotest part of the jungle? Will he be accountable for not knowing about Jesus? The answer to that question is, yes. We know that God is trying to get a hold of that person for at least five reasons: The…

Is Tithing For Today

Is Tithing For Today

Many people have asked us, is tithing for today? Yes, I believe it is. In Matthew 23:23 and Luke 11:42, Jesus told us we should tithe. In 45 years of being a Christian and consistently tithing, God has never once let me down. Even on a commission job for all these years, where I don’t…

The Good Fight of Faith

The Good Fight of Faith

Our job is to get the Word of God into our heart. Satan’s job is to take the Word out of our heart. That’s the fight. Mark 4:15 speaks of how Satan comes immediately to steal the Word sown in our hearts. Even as I’m speaking the Word of God to you right now, the…
