An Eager Anticipation

Albert N. Martin

The Ascension of Jesus

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

As His hands are raised over them in priestly blessing, while He is pronouncing that blessing, He begins to ascend upward and upward and upward until, Luke tells us in Acts chapter 1, a cloud envelops Him and hides Him from their view.

All Shall Be Brought to the Judgment Seat of Christ II

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

Can you look into the face of the very God Whom you’ll encounter in the Day of Judgment and say: “Oh God, You know what I know, that I have more than a mere profession”? “Lord Jesus, I can’t wait for the day when You will, as the righteous Judge, openly identify me as one of Your sheep!”

Christ Commanded Repentance

Charles H. Spurgeon

Repent ye, and believe the gospel —Mark 1:15.

What is your repentance? Have you a repentance that leads you to look out of self to Christ and to Christ only? On the other hand, have you that faith which leads you to true repentance? To hate the very thought of sin?

Redemption’s Three Parties

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him that was stronger than he (Jer 31.11).

Jeremiah foretold days of restoration for Israel after she had been decimated by well-deserved discipline for her apostasy. Through Jeremiah, the LORD promised to bring the exiles home and bless them again beyond anything they had ever known. Both the exile of Judah (586 B.C.) and the several waves of returning exiles were yet future; Jeremiah lived to see the first but not the second.

The Precise Time of the Lord’s Return

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

Now we come in the third place to consider: as to the precise time of the Lord’s return, for us—it is imminent, indefinite and unknowable... James in chapter 5, verses 8 and 9, uses similar language. He tells us, “The coming of the Lord is at hand...behold, the judge stands before the doors.”

He Shall Come II

Dr-Albert-N-MartinAlbert N. Martin

Now, the question is this: after all of this stretching over several millennia—from the creation of our first parents to their fall into sin, to God’s initial announcement of redemptive grace, all the way through to the appearance of our Lord Jesus, His death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and descending of the Spirit—what is the next great act of God in that history? It is the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

All That Matters

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature (Gal 6.15).

“In Christ Jesus” directs us to consider that which is of soteriological significance (i.e., salvation). It is tantamount to Paul writing, “When it comes to matters of salvation,” because to be “in Christ Jesus,” according to Paul, is to be saved.
