Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 105 Burning for God

In the Old Testament, when the sacrifice on the altar was prepared, God sent fire from heaven as a sign of His acceptance and approval. On the day of Pentecost the people saw tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each of the disciples in the upper room.  We are also told that our God is a consuming fire. What does all of that mean to us today? Fire is used throughout the scripture as a sign of the presence of God. The tabernacle had a pillar of fire that burned above it. The priests were commanded to keep the fire inside the tabernacle burning day and night. Jesus said that He came to send fire on the earth. God appeared to Moses in a burning bush. The judgment of God is very often referred to in the context of fire. Ministers are described as a flame of fire. Jesus is described in Revelation as One who has eyes of fire. John said that Jesus would baptize us with the Holy Spirit and fire.

In November 1984, G.W. North, a minister from England, visited a gathering in West Palm Beach, Florida for a few days. One evening his subject was “Burning for God.” Those who were present in that meeting will never forget the ministry and the impact on their lives. Today we share a recording of that ministry with the prayer that you also may benefit and be strongly encouraged to “burn for God.”

Episode 104 The Battle for Life

When Adam sinned, he took himself and the human race that followed into death. When Christ came He conquered Satan and his host of evil forces and opened the door for us to partake of God’s life. But if the victory has been won, why is there still a battle in this world between God and Satan? I think this is a very real question to many of us. We hear that Christ won the victory at Calvary, but yet our experience is that we are in a warfare. And Paul says that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against a host of wickedness in heavenly places. If this is true, then what did happen at Calvary and how does that relate to our experience today?

  • Sin brought death
    • Spiritual death (separation from God)
    • Physical death (the process of death begins early in our bodies)
    • Sin reigned in death (Romans 5)
  • Christ came that we may have life (John 10:10)
    • He took on human flesh
    • He became sin for us at Calvary (2 Cor. 5:21)
    • He died (physically)
    • He rose from the dead thus conquering death (I Cor. 15)
    • He is seated at the right hand of God in heaven (authority)
    • Christ gives life to those who come to Him (John 5:39,40; John 20:31)
    • The risen Christ dwells within us by the Holy Spirit (life)
  • We are called to possess what God has given
    • Israel was given the land but they had to possess (Deut. Ch. 1 & 7)
    • We have been given all spiritual blessing in Christ but we must possess (Eph. 1)
    • We would like to “overcome” without a fight, but that would leave us weaklings
  • Spiritual ascendency comes through spiritual enlargement
  • Spiritual enlargement comes through faith and obedience
  • Spiritual territory can only be taken with spiritual weapons (Eph. 6)
  • Spiritualty (God’s life) is revealed in and through physical vessels
  • Prayer (intercession) is a critical part of spiritual warfare

Episode 103 The place of Godly wives

After God had created Adam, He said it is not good for man to be alone so He created Eve as a suitable helper. God’s plan is for a husband and wife to function as one in the family for His purpose and glory. It is a perfect plan but requires each to take their place. Today we focus on the place of the wife. When God created woman, he took something out of the man. God views the husband and wife as one, so what was taken out of Adam is brought back together in a relationship. Thus the challenge in the marriage is to see a harmonious relationship where each member is able to contribute their part. Neither man nor woman is superior to the other, but there is a God-ordained place for each. To accept the place that God has created and function in that place is the key to a harmonious marriage and a fulfilment of God’s ordained purpose in the family.

  • As a child of God
    • Created by God (taken from Adam) as a suitable helper
    • Has her own relationship with God (no male or female, Gal 3:28)
    • Has a unique place in God’s creation but not “second class” (I Cor. 11:3)
    • Is different from a man in her makeup (disposition)
  • As a wife and mother
    • One with her husband (union, Eph. 5:31)
    • Functions in a place of submission as unto God (I Peter 3:1-3)
    • As a helper to her husband (in his vision and calling, Prov. 31)
    • A household in which the life of God is seen (I Tim. 5:14)
    • To teach the children (Prov. 1:8-9, 6:20-21)
    • To teach in their households (Priscilla, Acts 18:26)
  • As a sister in the Family of God
    • A member of the Body of Christ with a God-given function (I Cor. 12)
    • An adornment that glorifies God (I Peter 3:3-6)
    • A quiet and meek spirit that is precious to God (I Peter 3:4)
    • To adorn the gospel with good works (I Tim. 5:9-10)
    • Older sisters have a unique ministry to younger sisters (Titus 2:3-5)
    • A ministry of power in weakness (John 13:14-15, I Cor. 1:27, 2 Cor. 12:9)
