God's Grace is always free. It is a gift to be received, not a prize to be earned. "Salvation is not granted to men as a result of anything they are, or do, or resolve to be, but it is the undeserved gift of heaven."

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that
not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9


The new birth, the beginning of spiritual life for every believer. When divine life is imparted, the Holy Spirit enters the believer's body. This miracle is achieved through the hearing and believing of God's Word, by the working of the Holy Spirit and by our response to God of believing the truth.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
John 3:6,7


This means "to reckon" or "to put to one's account" by a judicial act of God. God put our sins upon Christ at the cross and He put Christ's righteousness upon us as believers.

To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
2 Corinthians 5:19


A middle-man is needed to bring together a Holy God and sinful men. This is the "daysman" for which Job longed and which Christ proved to be.

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive
the promise of eternal inheritance.
Hebrews 9:15


You were bought with a price. Believers were once the slaves of sin and uncleanness, the curse of the Law's terrible judgment, fear of impending death, and Satan's power. Now we have been made free in Christ because He has paid the price with His own precious blood.

Redemption were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1 Peter 1:18-19


Through Christ's work, not that of man, God has become favorable to us and the claims of justice have been satisfied. The man who prayed the sinner's prayer cried, "God, be propitious to me."

...being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed.
Romans 3:24-25


Baptism is a picture of salvation. It is very important, and it follows the new birth, but does not cause it.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19


A divine act of a holy God whereby a sinner who believes in Christ is pronounced righteous before Him and acquited of all charges. Justification is by grace, by faith and by His blood, without works and apart from the law. Justification by works is a demonstration of the reality of faith already possessed, an outward display of faith by action, following salvation.

...knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
Galatians 2:16


The Four Witnesses

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, February 17, 2013 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0613, entitled "The Four Witnesses" by Saul Cooper. The Biblical standard for witnesses is that no one could be condemned to death on the basis of one witness - there must be a minimum of two. Jesus presented four witness which was twice as many as required; and yet they would not believe Him. The question today is do you believe that He is who He said He was? We are going to look at both the testimony of Jesus and that of the four witnesses. 

On the evidence of two witnesses or three witnesses, he who is to die shall be put to death; he shall not be put to death on the evidence of one witness.
Deut 17:6


The Practicality of the Bible

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, February 3, 2013 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0513 entitled "The Practicality of the Bible" by Jim Hunt. The Word of God gives us answers about the needs and questions of our everyday circumstances of life. It not only shows us our need as lost sinners, but explains how we can be reconciled to a Holy God and have our sins forgiven. Then it provides spiritual food for our daily walk with God. It then gives us glimpses into the future and opens our understanding as to events in the years to come as we await the return of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. So, come along as we explore a few of the verses that meet us where we are in our day to day living.


When God Pleads His Case

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday January 27, 2013 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0413 entitled, "When God Pleads His Case" by Saul Cooper. What would you do this morning if God came to you and pleaded his case for your faithfulness? If he told you of all the times that he came to your rescue and protected you and provided for you, how would you respond? God came to Israel and did that very thing. God presented his argument to Israel, Jer. 2:9 "Therefore I will yet contend with you," declares the LORD, "And with your sons' sons I will contend. God is also pleading with all mankind to come to Him.


The Power of God

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, January 20, 2013 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0313 entitled "The Power of God" by Jim Hunt. It is important for us to remember that the last words Jesus spoke before His death on the cross were, "It is finished." The debt of our sin had been paid in full. Yet, even though the work of redemption was finished, Jesus was not finished. Three days later, Jesus was raised from the dead by the power of God. The power of God is greater than any power that exists in the world today. More than any army, more than any weapon, more than any ruler. Jesus Christ is Lord over all and has power over all.



The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday January 13, 2013 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0213 entitled, "Joy" by Saul Cooper. Looking around the world today, you have to look very hard for something to give you real joy. However, from the Christian view point, we have much to be joyful about. As a third-century man was anticipating death, he penned these last words to a friend: “It’s a bad world, an incredibly bad world. But I have discovered in the midst of it a quiet and holy people who have learned a great secret. They have found a joy which is a thousand times better than any pleasure of our sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They are masters of their souls. They have overcome the world. These people are the Christians—and I am one of them.”
Moody Bible Institute’s, Today In The Word, June, 1988, p. 18

Even in the most difficult situations, we as Christians have the Joy of the Lord as our strength. Understanding the Joy of the Lord is the topic of this message.


Happy New Year

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, January 6, 2013 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0113 entitled "Happy New Year" by Jim Hunt. One of my favorite passages of Scripture as we look forward to the New Year is Revelation 21:4-5: "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, 'I am making everything new!'" That surely is one of the most hopeful texts in all the Bible. Imagine what it will be like when this old order has truly passed away.


The Closed Door

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday December 30, 2012 has been posted. This is broadcast number 5212 entitled, "The Closed Door" by Saul Cooper. According to Gen 6:3 the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." Before the flood, God gave men a hundred and twenty years to repent of their sinfulness, but they ignored Him. They did not realize that God meant what he said, they watched as the one righteous man and his family prepared for the destruction, they probably laughed at him. But Noah listened to God and did as He was instructed, and he and his family was saved. The door was opened and Noah and his family went in, and then it was closed.
