That Reference This Scripture

  1. Done in Christ; Lords of Darkness - Neil Girrard Some have taken Jesus’ last words to mean, among other things that Christ’s sacrifice was completely and ultimately finished - that there was and is absolutely nothing any human could do to add to the finished work of the cross. Is this true?

  2. Ekklesia - A Word Study - Neil Girrard Reading the Scriptures with the word “church” in them has done centuries of damage to the body of Christ. A simple reading of these Scriptures with the Greek word “ekklesia” re-inserted can be a real eye-opener.

  3. Faith Alone? - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) The entire “faith alone” concept is overly simplistic, unbalanced, skewed and distorted. What is the truth?

  4. Give, Give, Give; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer The requirement of the life of a disciple of Jesus is to give, give, give. How much? Everything!

  5. Gospel of Grace - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) Joseph Prince’s book, Destined to Reign, is an astonishing compilation of errors and false teachings. This article attempts to tackle all those found in chapter 3, “Controversies Surrounding the Gospel of Grace.”

  6. In My Name - Neil Girrard What does it mean to gather together in the name of Christ?

  7. Spiritual Fruit; Lords of Darkness - Neil Girrard For every fruit of the Spirit of God, there is a counterfeit or alternative fruit of the spirit of mammon.

  8. 8. Three Cardinal Principles on Living in the Body of Christ; The Body of Christ: A Reality - Watchman Nee How, then, can all these members with their various functions be fitly framed and knit together as one body? We must first realize that there are three cardinal principles which are indispensable to our living in the body of Christ.

  9. Treasures - Neil Girrard Do we really know what our treasures really are?

  10. Twelve Reasons for Suffering; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer When sufferings happen we should realize we are identifying with the Lord’s walk through comparable situations, and because He went through them first He will lead us safely through them.
