Welcome, come submissively for Theology is an empty vessel without grace in the heart.

This is designed to be a Christ focused expository look at common questions and basic biblical and theological terms. I wish for us to examine in the simplest terms, so even I can comprehend, as they are expounded upon in the bible, answers to foundations of sound doctrine and look towards the single focus of glorifying God.

I pray that we come humblily to His Word and He opens our hearts to His message and blinds us to our ignorance. In Jesus name, Amen…

Why do mission work?

Simply because it pleases God to use the tainted means of the world to do His work for His glory. God uses His Spirit filled word weather it be spoken or read to praise or proclaim the gospel. Simpler and more important still, because God commands it (Mark 16:15). We are ambassadors for Christ (II Cor 5:20). As an ambassador you are an accredited representative of Christ. Our responsibility on the job, at home, during play, at all times is to conduct ourselves as ambassadors of the Lord. And as His voice we are to beseech others to be reconciled to God “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God” (II Cor 5:20). We are to seek and to invite men and women to church to hear the gospel, we are to seek men and women and witness to them concerning His sacrifice, we are to beseech men and women to reconcile to God. So does this fly in the face of predestination or God’s sovereignty, God forbid. For there are thousands of redeemed people that have not been called by the Spirit. And called they shall be. This is our comfort when we go forth with the quickening Word of God. It is our privilege and responsibility to go out and cast the lot knowing the disposition of them is of the Lord (Psa 16:33). When we take His message to the world we do so because God has arranged the means that His Children will here His Word and has ordained us to be the massager of life to the souls of His elect and they will receive it, for so the decree of predestination and His sovereignty runs.

(Mat 9:37-38) “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”
