Words of Comfort: Goose Bumps

Here’s another “goose bumps” portion of scripture. No one in history dared to speak words like these. They are utterly senseless, unless you are God in human form: 

"Jesus said to her, ‘Your brother will rise again.’ Martha said to Him, ‘I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.’ Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?’" (John 11:23-26). 

Do you also believe this? I do. With every ounce of my being.

Words of Comfort: Common Myths

In an article called “11 You Thought Were True” Madeleine Crum wrote, 

“As the geneticist J. B. S. Haldane remarked, The most frequently asked question is: 'Which came first, the chicken or the egg?' The fact that it is still asked proves either that many people have never been taught the theory of evolution or that they don't believe it.’ With that in mind, the answer becomes obvious. Birds evolved from reptiles, so the first bird must have come out of an egg--laid by a reptile.”

So Crum thinks she has solved the dilemma of which came first, by hatching another “mystery.” It now becomes “Which came first, the reptile or the egg?”

Such are musings of the fertile imaginations of those who refuse to believe that God made a chicken (and a rooster), the female laid a fertilized egg, that reproduced after its own kind.

Words of Comfort: A Little Bit of History

I discovered the forgotten principle of biblical evangelism (“Hell’s Best Kept Secret”) back in August of 1982, and as I watched those I spoke to come under true conviction, I longed to somehow get a witnessing encounter on-camera.

On February 19th, 1996, a ministry called “Jewish Voice” called and asked if they could film me doing some street witnessing. They then sent a camera-man to California, and we filmed part of the program in Hollywood (pictured).

Later that day (much to my delight) we filmed a very moving witnessing encounter on the Seal Beach pier. That clip was the answer to my prayer.

Since that first clip, our YouTube Channel has had over 26 million views (and counting). You can check out the channel here:

Words of Comfort: "Lord, Lord..."

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” Matthew 7:21-23

Words of Comfort: "S"

We were flying on a plane once when the passenger who sat next to us turned out to be a pastor. He told us that back in 1993 he was in a phone booth talking to his sister. She shared the gospel with him, and he repented and trusted Jesus right there the phone booth. He said that he came out of the booth as a new person, with a big "S" on his chest: “Saved.”

Words of Comfort: "Why hasn't Jesus shown himself to you?"

I'm presuming you are asking why He hasn’t physically appeared. He will one Day for the entire Human race, but in the meantime God has chosen the medium of trust. Trust Him with your eternal salvation and He will reveal Himself to you. See John 14:21 for details.

Words of Comfort: "Why didn’t Jesus’ miracles in the Bible leave behind any evidence?"

When He walked on water, there were no footprints of which to speak. When He rose from the dead, no body was left in the tomb, and when He multiplied the loaves and fish, it was all presumably consumed.  

If you want tangible evidence that is so compelling that you wouldn’t be able to deny it even if you wanted to, obey the gospel through repentance and trust in Jesus. Do that and you will have the evidence, if that’s what you are seeking. He will transform you in a moment of time and you will come to know God. The first step, as with any relationship, is to have faith. Just step out with trust enough to do what He says, and He will manifest Himself to you. See John 14:21 for details.

Words of Comfort: "Why are there so many starving people?"

"Why are there so many starving people in the world, why would God be worried about you getting a raise at work, but ignore starving children?"

Why do you assume that God wants to lift wages, or that He ignores starving children? The truth is that you don't know the mind of God. No one does. We do however, know His will, revealed in His Word. What you do know is that He commands you to repent and trust in the Savior.

Words of Comfort: "Why do bad things happen to good people?"

According to the Bible, there are no good people. Not even one. So the real question is, who do good things happen to bad people? Why does God send the rain on the just and the unjust? Why does He let blasphemers live? The answer is that He is kind, good, rich in mercy, waiting for each to repent and trust the Savior.

Words of Comfort:: "Why doesn’t God heal amputees?"

Here are some new questions to replace that old worn out atheist demand: Why doesn't God grow new hair on bald heads! Why doesn't He make dwarfs tall!

When no one can give you an answer to these demands, tell yourself that God doesn't exist and that noting made everything. Then pat yourself on the back for the profundity of your intellectual logic.

Words of Comfort: 19 Ladies.

I love chickens. We have 19 of the ladies. I have even named some of them. There’s Finger-lickin, Roast, Tender, etc. I have a picture of Colonel Sanders on their coop wall to remind them what it’s all about. But more than that--I’ve found a way to help them pump out eggs. All I do is say “What’s for dinner tonight ladies? Eggs…or chicken?”

Dumb though they are, they are amazing machines. We toss them kitchen food scraps along with their layer mash, and they turn it into hygienically-sealed packages in the morning that can be scrambled, fried, poached, or made into an omelet.

Even though the Bible tells us that the chicken came first, the birdbrain isn’t first when it comes to intelligence. The chicken IQ comes in a close second to the dumb turkey. God didn’t give them much ability to think deeply about anything but food. Just as well I guess. Not like Man--who was made in His image. We aren’t bird-brains. We have deeper thoughts than chickens. How about using that brain today to find everlasting life?  See www.evolutionVs.God for details.

Words of Comfort: 30,000 Denominations.

"There are over 30,000 denominations across continents and countries. There are fundamental elements being disagreed upon. And yet you're all reading the same book and all claiming to be possessed by God himself. It's nonsense." Bill Hicks

I don’t think that there are two human beings on th
e face of this earth that could fully agree about anything. I’m sure you would agree with that. We disagree about politics, about what foods are the best to eat, about two human beings not being able to agree, which is the best sport, whose teams are best, about why certain things happened in history, and a host of other different issues.
This carries over into religion. While there are many denominations that disagree about how much water to baptize with, when or when not to take communion, about church discipline, there are a number of essential doctrines almost all of them agree upon—and that is that Christ died for our sins and rose again on the third day. So I wouldn’t use the fact that human beings disagree on some issues as an excuse for you to stay in your sins. On Judgment Day you will have to give an account of yourself to God, no one else.

Words of Comfort: “Creationism is anti-science.”

Creationism can be observed. Genesis says every animal has male and female and brings forth after its own kind (see Genesis 1). Faith isn’t necessary when it comes to what the Bible says about these things, because this is observable in the existing creation and in the fossil record. Darwinian evolution isn’t scientific because it doesn’t pass the scientific method. If you don’t believe it watch and listen to evolutionary scientists admit it.

Words of Comfort: “There is no Hell.”

If a judge shut his eyes to Mafia murders, he is a corrupt judge and should be prosecuted himself. If God is good He must see that perfect justice is done.  The Bible warns that that will happen on Judgment Day. God will punish all murderers and rapists, but He is so good, and so just, He will also punish thieves, liars, fornicators, adulterers, and even those who have lusted (see Matthew 5:27-28) and hated (see 1 John 3:15). Hell is His terrible prison, and those who go there won’t be eligible for parole.

Words of Comfort: “The Bible is full of mistakes.”

It has seeming mistakes, which, when investigated with a humble heart, prove to be our mistakes, not God’s. The death of Judas, the day Adam died, the “two” creations, the last words of Jesus, etc., all have simple explanations for those who are seeking truth. However, the majority of those who ask these questions are not seeking answers. They are rather seeking to justify their love for sin. If they can be sure that the Bible is full of mistakes, then they can be sure that there is no moral accountability, no Judgment Day, no Heaven, and definitely no Hell. If that is true, then fornication, adultery, pornography, and homosexuality are not morally wrong, and can be enjoyed with reckless abandon. However, the Bible is the epitome of a wet blanket…that’s why it is so despised and maligned.

Words of Comfort: "Suffering proves there’s no God.”

Suffering has nothing to do with the existence of God. We know that He exists because of creation, and we know that He requires moral accountability because of the existence of the human conscience. It is scientifically impossible for Nature to create itself. However, the truth of the Bible is substantiated by the suffering we see all around us. We are told in Genesis that we have suffering, disease, pain and death because we live in a “fallen” creation.

Words of Comfort: “Didn’t men write the Bible?”

Yes, of course men wrote the Bible. No book has ever evolved without an author. To say that a book happened by chance is scientifically ludicrous. However, the men who penned Scripture wrote it in the same way a pen is instrumental in writing a letter. Men were God’s instruments to pen His letter to humanity. His signature is on the Bible through its amazing prophecies. Only He knows the future and He has given it in His Word for those who take the time to read it. See Matthew 24 or Luke 21 for just a few.

Words of Comfort: “Evolution is a proven fact.”

The burden of proof lies with the believer in evolution, but there is no proof because nothing can be observed. How can that which supposedly happened millions of years ago be observed?  It is all founded on faith in men’s ideas, old bones, and in fallible dating methods. If you don’t believe that, see and let evolutionary experts tell you.

Words of Comfort: “Do gays go to Hell?”

“Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). This is God’s standard. If you don’t like it, feel free to take it up with Him.

Words of Comfort: What about Islam?

"Are you scared to publicly say that Islam is of Satan, Muhammad is a false prophet, and Allah is not God--Islam is a false religion and it is your personal aim to wipe out Islam."

It's not the aim of Christians to wipe out Islam or any other religion. We want every Moslem to make it to Heaven, and we therefore lovingly share the gospel with them. They need not try and earn everlasting life by their own religious efforts. The one and only Creator offers it as a free gift. This is a universal offer to the entire human race, no matter what religion people belong to. If they repent and trust alone in Jesus, He will grant them salvation as a free gift. See for further details.

Words of Comfort: W A R !

“There is a war between you and God’s Law. The Ten Commandments are against you.  The first comes forward and says, ‘Let him be cursed.  For he denies Me.  He has another god beside Me.  His god is his belly and he yields his homage to his lust.’  All the Ten Commandments, like ten great cannons are pointed at you today.  For you have broken all God’s statutes and lived in daily neglect of all His commands.  Soul, you will find it a hard thing to go to war with the Law; When the Law came in peace, Sinai was altogether on a smoke and even Moses said, ‘I exceeding fear and quake!’ 

"What will you do when the Law of God comes in terror; when the trumpet of the archangel shall tear you from your grave; when the eyes of God shall burn their way into your guilty soul; when the great books shall be opened and all your sin and shame shall be punished… can you stand against an angry Law in that Day?” -- Charles Spurgeon
