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


Start Over

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, January 8, 2012 has been posted. This is broadcast number 112, entitled "Start Over" by Jim Hunt.

When you've trusted God and walked His way,
When you've felt His hand lead you day by day,
But your steps now take you another way,
...Start over.

When you've made your plans and they've gone awry,
When you've tried your best and there's no more try
When you've failed yourself and you don't know why,
...Start over.

When you've told your friends what you plan to do,
When you've trusted them and they didn't come through,
And you're all alone and it's up to you,
...Start over.

When the year has been long and successes few,
When December comes and you're feeling blue,
God gives a January just for you,
...Start over.
By Woodrow Kroll


New Beginning

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, January 1, 2012 has been posted. This is broadcast number 5211, entitled "New Beginning" by Saul Cooper. One of the main stresses of Biblical Christianity is that of newness - the opportunity for rebirth, to become a new person. It has been said that there are no stains or blots on the future. Each person, no matter what the past has held, is faced with the opportunity for a new beginning in life this very day. This morning our study will be to Teach, Illustrate and Apply this Bible Truth.


The Eternal God

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, April 25, 2010 has been posted. This is broadcast number 1610, entitled "The Eternal God" by Jim Hunt. We spend all of our time in time. We always want to know what time it is. We are ever conscious of the fact that time is slipping away. We spend our whole existence living from moment to moment. But God is not like that. He does not have a succession of moments. The fact that God is eternal means that He transcends time. It is not as if God's existence is like our existence, only longer, rather God lives beyond time. That is why His perspective on time is so different from ours. 

With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
2 Peter 3:8


Favorite Verses

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, April 11, 2010 has been posted. This is broadcast number 1410, entitled "Favorite Verses" by Jim Hunt. Do you have a favorite Bible Verse? I think that most of us would be hard pressed to select one favorite verse, because the Word of God is so full of beautiful, meaningful, powerful, words of truth, hope, love and salvation. I suppose that one of the best known and best loved verse is John 3:16. It is probably the first verse most of us learned in Sunday School. This message looks at that verse and many other favorites.


The Triumphal Entry

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, March 28, 2010 has been posted. This is broadcast number 1210, entitled "The Triumphal Entry" by Jim Hunt. All four of the gospel writers record this remarkable event. It is remarkable because of it's unusual character. Previously, on a number of occasions, Jesus was withdrawing Himself. He seemingly did not want attention. He would send away those who had been healed with the admonition, "Tell no man..." But here, on this occasion, Christ took the initiative...the crowd didn't bring the animal to Jesus...He sent two of His disciples to bring the colt.



The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, March 21, 2010 has been posted. This is broadcast number 0110, entitled "Enoch" by Saul Cooper. In every age and dispensation, God has had His chosen servants exhibiting to all who are around the power of faith, and the beauty of holiness. In the first age of the world, there was Abel, the first of the noble army of martyrs; spoken of by Jesus in Luke 11:51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the house of God; yes, I tell you, it shall be charged against this generation.' Then at the time of the flood there was Noah. In the period between Abel and the flood, there was one servant of God unlike all the others before and since, Enoch of whom our text speaks.


Having an Eternal Perspective

The audio of the Bible Truth Broadcast radio show for the air date of Sunday, March 14, 2010 has been posted. This is broadcast number 1010, entitled "Having an Eternal Perspective" by Jim Hunt. The writer of Psalm 90 ponders the passing of time. He seems to be perplexed, even troubled, by the brevity of life. The years pass quickly, and before we know it, we've come to the end and wonder if our lives have counted for something, for anything. Has it all been trouble and sorrow, or will we have something to show for the years we've spent in this world?
