"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter Four


Contributing commentaries by Sonny Islas and James Fire     

Notes on GENESIS 4 (and 5) by Lambert Dolphin - Adam's Account Part II: 

Commentary on GENESIS by Ray Stedman -

Chapter Four – by pastor Sonny Islas
[Note: supplemental commentary and notations in italics are mine, James Fire].


At this point God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden due their disobedience lest they stay there and eat of the Tree of Life and live in their sinful state forever. Eve chose to obey the word of Satan and Adam chose to obey the word of Eve, when they all should have obeyed the Word of God. In their fallen sinful condition, Eve gives birth to two sons, Cain and Abel.

GENESIS 4:1 
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.

Trust & Obey

by Pastor Josh Boubion

Many believers in their walks with the Lord come to a place where they just can’t take on the burden of not being used as much as they want to be used by the Lord. They look back at their walk of countless years of bearing the burden of the Cross. Because they don't see where the LORD is using them to any great effect, they mourn, and become determined and ambitious to begin a work on their own that they hope God will bless.

TTUF Recommendation for Warren Smith

Warren Smith is a name recognized by any Christian who has done research into the Emergent Church Movement, as well as the New Age Spirituality, among other false and imposing doctrines that are infiltrating the church.

From his own website: FROM The NEW AGE to AMAZING GRACE: www.warrenbsmith.com/

"Warren B. Smith (B.A. University of Pennsylvania; M.S.W. Tulane University)—A free lance writer and community social worker who was formerly involved in the New Age movement. He has served as a program coordinator for people with special needs, directed several homeless programs, and has worked as a Hospice social worker in New Orleans and on the California coast. He has written extensively on the subject of spiritual deception and has spoken on radio, television, and at seminars and conferences."

Warren now has a youtube channel and we are eager to watch and learn the latest that he brings to the body of Christ as a true watchman on the wall, discerning and warning of the apostasy and leaven that the enemy seeks ever to infest the body of Christ with.

Visit often both his website and his youtube channel - and if you haven't read any of his books yet, get some! You will be enriched in your knowledge necessary to spot and reject the falseness of doctrines and practices which are unbiblical.

We have used his materials in many of our own articles, particularly the ones on Rick Warren, TTUF Profile on RICK WARREN using his book Deceived On Purpose, as well as FALSE TEACHINGS, FALSE PEACE and FALSE CHRIST (Part 1 of 3) based largely on False Christ Coming, Does Anybody Care?

May the LORD bless, keep and use our brother Warren for His great glory and kingdom!

TTUF Presents Lambert Dolphin's "Prayer 101"

I have been blessed throughout my Christian life by some excellent teachers; Chuck Smith, Dave Hunt, Chuck Missler and so many others I've sat under in various local churches in both New York and Arizona.

These elder saints have gleaned so much wisdom, knowledge, love and compassion from the LORD that is evidenced by their ministry and lives and poured these out selflessly to the glory of God.

Lambert Dolphin is yet another godly saint that has been used as a vessel of the LORD to enrich His body with solid, biblical and grounded teaching and I've been granted the privilege of interacting with him on Facebook! I asked him, after examining his website, if I might share some of his articles on TTUF and he graciously permitted me to do so with the utmost of liberality.

With so many subjects covered on his website I felt like a kid in a candy shop, but I was immediately drawn to this article you have before you.

I pray that this will greatly bless and encourage us to put into practice what we will learn here!

Without any further delay, let's find out what brother Lambert has to share with us!

The HEAVEN-SENT GIFT of GOD


Let’s take a journey, all of us, to that realm of eternity, before time and space themselves were created, in the hallowed halls of heaven, where the Godhead – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (ROM 1:20; COL 2:9; 1 JOHN 5:8) entered the Father’s office and closed the door for a confidential meeting that left the angels curious.

Long before God said, “Let there be light” this meeting was held by these Three Who knew the end even before the beginning (ISAIAH 46:10).
They discussed how it would go with Lucifer, how he would instigate a rebellion in which a third of the angels would follow him (ISAIAH 14; EZEK 28; REV 12:4). How Adam would yield to his wife and partake of the forbidden fruit (GEN 3:6) and thereby plunge the entire human race into the dreadful curse of sin, death, destruction and damnation (1 COR 15:21-22).

They would have to judge and condemn the human race for their sin: The absolute holiness integral to God’s very nature could not possibly demand anything less (EZEK 18:4,20).
Yet God also declared His unconditional love for these souls who had not then even been born (JOHN 3:16).
How could the judgment of God against wickedness be upheld without condemning man to an eternity of hell (REV 14:11)?

How could He demonstrate His absolute love for them without compromising His holiness?

GOSPEL PRESENTATION – TURNING POINT TOWARDS ETERNITY


Life is full of turning points; we have all experienced them; where our life was heading in a certain direction, then an event happened, or a decision was made, and it affected the remainder of our life by going in a different direction. 

Sometimes we wonder, had we made a different decision in life, where it would have led.
Turning points include the choices we make: in who we make friends with, what hobbies or activities we engage in, where we go to school, what we major in, in college; what job we take, where we decide to move to, who we marry. All these decisions affect the path of life we are on. Turning points can lead to great blessing or terrible tragedy . . .

TTUF STUDY on The REVELATION of JESUS CHRIST – CHAPTER 3: The Seven Churches - Part Two


We will now continue to examine the seven churches. I have previously studied these churches on my blog FROM The MIND of FIRE, so we will simply re-post those articles here, continuing with the letters of fifth, sixth and seventh churches as they were written in Chapter Three (the titles of these messages are hyper-linked; click on those to read the entire articles). Bear in mind that each of these is a complete study in themselves, so it will take you quite a while to get through them. The last three of the seven churches are included in this TTUF study along with a summary conclusion article:

GENESIS – An Expositional Overview of the Beginning of God’s Revelation: Chapter Three














Contributing commentaries by Sonny Islas and James Fire     

Notes on GENESIS 3 by Lambert Dolphin - Adam's Account Part II: 

Commentaryon GENESIS by Ray Stedman -

Chapter Three – by James Fire

Of what we have examined thus far in this book of Moses, we have witnessed the creation of all things, including that of man and his help mate according to God’s established and ordained order; we’ve also looked at the stewardship that the LORD gave to His first couple over the garden of Eden as well as the specifics regarding Adam and Eve and how she was created. We’ve witnessed the prohibition of God concerning the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Here in chapter 3, we will look into the greatest tragedy, as well as the greatest hope of all time – the fall of mankind into sin, and the promise of redemption made by God Himself. We will come to understand exactly why this world is not “very good” any more as God had declared when He completed creation – the effects of what happened more than 6000 years ago are still felt and seen today! When we grow discouraged and disillusioned at the way this world is going, and feel bewildered by it all, we must remember who it is that’s (still) in charge of this world system (but not for much longer! 2 COR 4:4).

So, without any further delay, let’s get into this chapter!
