Remorse--- No More

Rebound & Keep Moving!

Is the key that unlocks the Christian way of life. After salvation
the sin nature remains a relentless adversary, tempting the believer
to sin and live in carnality. When the believer sins, fellowship with
God is destroyed, the filling of the Holy Spirit is temporarily lost,
and spiritual  progress ceases.  Rebound is the simplest yet  most in--
credible concept in the spiritual life. Rebound defeats sin. Guilt, anguish,
 remorse  over  past failures  vanish  knowing  that  God forgives
and forgets all past sins. Rebound is our access to intimacy with the
Lord, the  gateway to divine power in our lives, our license to serve
the Lord. Rebound opens the door to the wonderful freedom the grace
of God offers to every believer in Jesus Christ.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with
hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Once A Believer Always A Believer

The Prodigal Son

He leaves  home and  squanders his inheritance in  riotous living.
His elder brother   stays  home  and works   hard. When the prodigal
returns  and is  restored to his  father, the elder brother  becomes petty,
jealous, bitter, and  resentful. Despite their different paths into carnality,
their sins  cannot  remove  them from  the circumstances of  their  birth. 
Once  a  son, always   a son! As a "born  again" believer, whether you sin 
like the prodigal or like the elder brother, you remain a permanent member
of the family of God, but you lose your temporal fellowship with God. To 
remedy  this  rift, God has provided a simple, grace procedure--rebound---
so that your postsalvation sins are forgiven and you can recover fellowship
and move on  in  the Christian life. Jesus taught the parable of the prodigal
son to  an  audience of self-righteous  legalists who reviled  the profligate
prodigal  and  praised  the holier-than-thou  elder brother. Yet they entirely
missed the message! Everyone who believes  who  believes in Christ by faith
alone  is  a  permanent son  of God. Once a family member, any believer can 
reclaim his Christian life from carnality and be restored to fellowship with God.

 I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and
says to you, "Do not fear; I will help you."

A Solution

Isolation Of Sin 

Breaking the vicious cycle of carnality shackling many believers to
their past failures. God's grace solution for the believer's sin is rebound,
privately confessing or naming sins to God the Father. Rebound instant--
aneously's accomplishes divine forgiveness, recovery of the Holy Spirit,
and restoration to fellowship with God. Yet many believers immediately
fall out of  fellowship,  caught  in reaction, guilt, and  a chain of mental,
verbal, or  overt  sins.  As their frustration  mounts, carnality seems over--
whelming. How do you break  this cycle?  Disengage yourself from forgiven
sin! When God forgives a sin, it no longer belongs to you. Do not reclaim the
burden! God has blotted out your sin! Feeling guilty, habitually looking back-
ward, worrying, chronic self-reproach only perpetuates your status in carnality.
When you  isolate  your sin by "forgetting those  things which are past," you
can" press on" to the high ground of spiritual maturity in your Christian life.

We do not lose heart. For our light and momentary
troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that
far outweighs them all.

It's Good To Control Your Nature

(Spirituality Books)

God The Holy Spirit vs. The Sin Nature

Is a ceaseless inner conflict. Each Christian by his own volition determines
who controls his life at any moment. The sin nature is inherent at birth. As
long as we live we retain this genetic distorter of our lives, with the result that
we  cannot fulfill the plan of God. Yet God's  marvelous plan  can be fulfilled.
Through the invisible ministry of God the Holy Spirit we can execute the Christian
way of life. This book tells the dramatic story of Elijah in 1 Kings 19. After a pow-
erful spiritual victory, he flees in terror because of an empty threat against his life.
The spiritual hero becomes totally ineffective. This Old Testament prophet vividly
illustrates a principle that applies to every New Testament believer: there is a vast
difference between living under the control of the sin nature and leading a life of
spiritual dynamics under the control of the Holy Spirit.

"I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plan's to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jer. 29:11

A Declaration


The  declaration of the good news of salvation, the Gospel of 
Jesus Christ, to the  unbelieving  world . But is this  responsibility
and privilege reserved solely for the pastor, missionary, and evangelist?
Definitely not! Every believer is responsible for presenting the Gospel
to a lost and dying world. What do you tell unbelievers about Christ? You
must explain what He accomplished on the cross and how anyone can rec-
eive  this incomparable gift. Your guiding principle is faith alone in Christ
alone. You are the point of contact in the unbeliever's search for meaning
and purpose in life. Without faith in Christ and an eternal future, his life
is ultimately meaningless. When a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger
believes in Christ as Savior from your presentation of the Gospel, you will
experience the inexpressible reward of serving our Lord through witnessing.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my
heart and my portion forever.

Greatest Decision

Victory Over Death

The greatest decision we can make is the one that prepares us
for death and dying-- the decision to personally believe in Jesus
Christ for eternal salvation. Therefore, when a Christian loved
 one dies, we  celebrate  the death of  that believer  as a victory.
Death is God's victory. He gives that victory. He gives that victory
to us by determining the time, the manner, and the place of our death.
God's decision to take a believer home is always fair and timely. This
edited transcript provides comfort from the Scripture and the reassurance
that Jesus Christ Himself has provided victory over death. Available in
two sizes: a pocket-sized booklet, ideal for enclosure in sympathy cards
and letters, and a full-sized book, suitable for memorial or funeral services.

For many years Bible classes taught  by R. B. Thieme Jr, have provided daily

Not For To Day


They will cease, Distortions have permeated contemporary Christianity
making this one of the most controversial statements in the Bible. Millions
of believers  today profess  to speak a language  they do  not understand, 
claiming a manifestation of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and evidence of
a superior relationship with God. The animation and enthusiasm of their
displays have infiltrated denominations and sects throughout the Christian
world. The spiritual gift of tongues, prophesied by Isaiah, was designed for
a specific divine purpose-- a warning sign to Israel of impending national
destruction. This gift, bestowed by the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost
A. D. 30, would  be an  unmistakable sign of Israel's spiritual failure and
imminent divine  judgment and would also  herald the  new Church Age.
But this spiritual gift is not operational today. The final authority for resolving
the theological conundrum of tongues is the infallible Word of God. Subjective
thinking and emotionalism mislead and obscure the truth of Bible doctrine.
Only the pertinent passages from Scripture, correctly translated and accurately
interpreted, can reveal to  the believer the truth about tongues.
