"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 . . . . .

The Importance of Studying the Word of God - James Fire

The Bible remains the only source of divine revelation and power that can sustain you as a Christian in your walk with God. 

The Bible is the source of:

  • Truth - "Sanctify them by Your truth; Your word is truth" (John 17:17). 
  • God's Blessing - "But He said, 'More than that, blessed are those who hear the word of God and keep it'" (Luke 11:28). 
  • Victory - "...the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (Eph. 6:17). 
  • Growth - "As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby" (1 Pet. 2:2). 
  • Power - "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek" (Rom. 1:16). 
  • Guidance - "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" (Ps. 119:105).

The Age of Deceit - by Ron Matsen

Part 1: All mankind is embroiled in a war that has been raging since the dawn of time where man is both the prize and the pawn in this deadly conflict. For mankind, it all began in the Garden of Eden. Because of the deception of Adam and Eve that was brought about through their seduction by the Nachash (the Hebrew word for (“shining one”), mankind was plunged into a war that they did not start.

The mind is the gatekeeper of the heart which is the repository of our deepest held devotion. In fact, the Bible tells us that we should be very careful concerning those things that capture our heart. King Solomon warned, “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” As the gatekeeper, the mind needs to consciously filter the harmful influences of the world.

Three Enemies: "The World, The Flesh, The Devil"

Since the beginning of time, mankind has been engaged in a war.  The battle which began in Genesis, continues to rage today.  I speak of a spiritual warfare, a war that all Christian believers are engaged in.  

In Ephesians 2:2-3, the apostle 
Paul taught that we were all under the sway of three forces: the world, the flesh and the devil.  He is drawing a contrast between life apart from Christ and life in Christ so as to magnify the power and grace of God in salvation.  The enemies of our soul are the enemies of God. They work in tandem withstanding God's design and purposes.  You can count on the fact that these enemies are always lurking about trying to thwart God's divine purpose in your life.  So when you come to defining the Christian life the best term is simply warfare!  

The following 3 part series is taught by Pastor James Fire (Part 1), Pastor Albert Lopez (Part 2), and Senior Pastor Sonny Islas (Part 3), of Shine Bright Church in Tucson, Arizona.
