Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 1

The subject I am going to approach in this message is an unusual subject. I have felt to go over this subject for the last few weeks. I remember the first time I ever heard anything like this was in 1961 when Bro. Branham had just preached a sermon where he explained there is no…

Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 10: The Perfecting of the Saints

Paul has been speaking of the Holy Ghost: “From whom the whole body fitly joined together.” Fitly, that is a word that carpenters will recognize. If something does not fit, then it is either in the wrong place or it is not cut right…

Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 11: Armageddon & The 144,000

Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 6

We are living in a time when evil is rampant. Satan is getting people ready to accept whatever he would dish out to them. Only the saints of God will be able to escape it, and that is not many. I do not want to think about it too much, but God knows what people…

Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 7: The Seven Church Ages

I have some additional scriptures I want to review in connection with this topic. I also want to go back over some of the things I have already looked at. I want to get everything right, I do not want to leave anything that is not tied down.

Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 8

I believe with all my heart God is winding things up and getting His church ready to go. I know a lot of what I am saying in this edition and the past one does not have a lot to do with my title subject. But I am going through time so we can understand…

Hell Is Not Eternal, Part 9: Looking At New Jerusalem

I was thinking about the Eternal Age and the things that we know about it. We know that the Bride will never relinquish all her authority. Bro.

WHAT ARE YOUR CONVICTIONS CONCERNING HOLINESS? DO YOU BELIEVE IT IS JUST FOLLOWING A SET OF MANMADE RULES, OR IS IT A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EVERY INDIVIDUAL CHRISTIAN AND GOD? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF WHEN SOMEONE MENTIONS HOLINESS?

Holiness vs. Tradition (2011)

Brothers and sisters: True holiness is more than just a shell that we put on. True holiness is perfected, when you are inside, what you appear to be on the outside, if what you appear to be on the outside is in harmony with God’s principles of righteousness..

Humanity and Deity of Christ, Part 1

SAINTS: I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS TO SORT OF PROVOKE YOUR THINKING, BEFORE WE ACTUALLY GO INTO THIS VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT WE HAVE CHOSEN TO DEAL WITH. CAN YOU EXPLAIN THE GODHEAD? DO YOU KNOW WHY JESUS HAD TO BE PERFECT MAN, IN ORDER TO FULFILL HIS PURPOSE UPON EARTH?

Humanity And Deity Of Christ, Part 2

THE HUMANITY AND THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST IS A SUBJECT OF SUCH A VAST SCOPE, WE COULD EASILY FILL A HALF DOZEN ISSUES OF THE CONTENDER AND STILL NOT SAY ALL THAT COULD BE SAID ON THE SUBJECT, BUT WE WILL ENDEAVOR TO SAY ENOUGH IN TWO ISSUES TO HELP ALL THOSE WHO LOVE…
