Where Are You God?

Every one of us as Christians at times has felt overwhelmed or all alone.  In the midst of trials and tribulations, we cry out to God to protect and rescue us.  And we know He is faithful–but sometimes we wish he acted on our timeline instead of His. King David’s life reflected the best of […]

A “Christian Nation” Turned Pagan?

America was founded upon Judeo-Christian Law, recognizing that all rights come from God alone, and that we were totally dependent on God.  Growing up as a child these beliefs were often reflected in the television and movies we watched, and within society as a whole. These days some of the most popular television shows and […]

Our Greatest Challenge

On Stand Up For the Truth we cover a lot of issues and challenges facing us as Christians.  But perhaps the greatest challenge we face in the world today is sharing the gospel of salvation and hope with those who are on a path to eternal destruction. In Luke 19:10 Jesus states that he came […]

In God We Trust–Or Do We?

It says so on every U.S. paper currency:  “In God We Trust”.  Well, some experts are warning that we might be facing an opportunity to put our money where our mouth is on that statement.  World Stock Markets closed down significantly last week and the early indications this morning is another bad day for the […]

Unraveling the Mystery of Biblical Prophecy

It is believed that up to as much as 30% of the Word of God deals with prophecy.  Some has been fulfilled; some has yet to come to pass.  Some is for Israel; some is for the Church.  And sometimes Biblical prophecy is fulfilled numerous times over numerous generations and situations. God has given us […]

Easy Pickings for Satan?

By every measurable standard it is clear that Biblical Christianity in America is on the decline and in a growing state of crisis.  Youth, being heavily influenced by a public education system increasingly hostile toward God, are leaving the faith in record numbers.  And many professing Christians do not understand, or disagree with, basic tenets […]

Serving as God Desires–Or as We Desire?

When we were young children every boy wanted to be the Quarterback of the football team or the superhero; every young girl wanted to be the Princess or Queen. We all aspired to become someone great that the world would look up to and admire. But as members of the Body of Christ we are […]

Applying 2 Timothy to the Church Today

When you think of the prophetic books of the Bible, 2 Timothy does not usually jump out first.  But Paul’s message to Timothy warns and encourages not only Timothy, but is also a great teaching for us who live in a post-modern world where individual “morality” has replaced the concept of absolute truth.  Paul’s words […]

A Move of Jesus in the Muslim World?

The spread of radical Muslim terrorism is a real crisis–one that is starting to hit nearly every nation on earth.  Christians being slaughtered for refusing to renounce Jesus Christ has become an almost daily event. But some are reporting that there is a movement of Jesus Christ–the true Jesus Christ–in the Muslim world.  And many […]

The Players in Earth’s Final Battle

Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Cush, Put, Gomer and on and on.  These are lands and peoples identified in the Ezekiel 38 War that sets the stage for the return of Jesus Christ to judge all men. Without an understanding of who these people and nations are in our times it makes watching for signs […]

Where is Our Allegiance?

As we prepare for another 4th of July celebration in the United States, I notice a change in how I feel this time every year.  I used to feel a sense of pride when I was younger, placing my hand on my heart and pledging allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  […]

Socialism isn’t a “right-wing” issue

Free health care sounds like such a great idea, doesn’t it? But there are huge ramifications for Christians. We can talk about coverage for unbiblical practices now – like abortion and sex change operations, but that’s just the beginning. Wait until socialized medicine is free. What happens when the government can’t fund coverage for the […]

Guiding the Church in Challenging Times

The first century Christian Church faced a variety of threats from outside and within.  Roman and Jewish persecution of believers and an influx of false teachers inside causing people to stray from the true faith were constant challenges the apostles wrote about to the early churches. God’s Word also wrote of the final days when […]

Understanding The Final Days

The Book of Revelation–The Revelation of Jesus Christ–is a crucial, yet confusing book.  It is the unveiling of the events on the earth in the final years before the return of Jesus Christ–and a warning to Christians to stand firm in the face of persecution. The Book is the most difficult one to understand in […]

Chipping Away at Church

The Christian Church in America is under increasing pressure to compromise with and conform to the “values” of this fallen, sinful world.  While it is no surprise that the world hates the Christian Church, it is alarming how many who profess to be Christians within the church seem to be active or passive participants in […]

Christians Should Be Seen But Not Heard?

When I was a child one thing I would hear too often from my parents was “Children are to be seen, but not heard”.  We were to be submissive and obedient children but not express opinions when adults were in the room. Are we seeing this philosophy imposed on Bible-believing Christians these days?  Christians around […]

The Narrow Christian Path

Jesus taught us the path to eternal life was narrow and that few find it.  Along both sides of the narrow path are numerous distractions and dangers lurking to pull us away from God and His eternal Word of Truth.  And if we take our eyes off the path we could easily stray off it […]

Replacement Theology

Last week our guest Pastor David Hocking had some stern warnings against the doctrine of “Replacement Theology” which states the Church has replaced Israel and God’s promises to Israel no longer apply to the final days. What are your views when you read what Paul wrote in Romans?  What does your church teach or believe […]
