Pastor Ronald Riffe  

  • AMERICA’S REBELLIOUS HEART

      Just Because Something Is Fervently Believed Does Not Necessarily Mean It Is Supported By The Word Of God

  • RACE RELATIONS AND A REBUKE TO US ALL

  • THE ARM OF FLESH

    “With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles…” 2 Chronicles 32:8[a] (Amplified Bible)

    These are words King Hezekiah of Judah spoke to the captains of war he had chosen to defend the nation against Sennacherib the King of Assyria. And they clearly indicate that he had his head screwed on straight! Even though they were facing an army that vastly outnumbered them—the preceding verse (32:7) tells us the basis for Hezekiah’s bravery:

     

  • HISTORY’S GREATEST PLAGUE

    …for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” Genesis 2:17 (Amplified Bible)

    Man’s very existence has always been threatened by the “big three” of disease, war and famine, but there is a silent plague stalking us that renders those things trivial by comparison.....

     

  • WHERE THIEVES BREAK THROUGH AND STEAL

    “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal” Matthew 6:19 (KJV).

  • MATTHEW 24 AND THE JEWISH TEMPLE

    “…Do You See All These?...” (Matt. 24:2a, Amplified Bible)

  • THE EYE OF ANTICHRIST

    “…his right eye shall be utterly darkened” Zechariah 11:17(b), KJV

    “…Evil Men And Seducers Shall Wax Worse And Worse…” 2 Timothy 3:13[a] (KJV)

    Some Thoughts On A Centuries-Old Theological Battleground

     

  • MORMONISM, THE NICE CULT

    “As American As Apple Pie,” But Laced With Spiritual Poison!

     

  • YOU EXPECT ME TO BELIEVE THAT???

    “…absurd and utterly unphilosophical nonsense” 1 Corinthians 1:23(b) (Amplified Bible).

  • PERSECUTION REVISITED

    Experienced Any Lately?

  • TO SPANK OR NOT TO SPANK

    What The Word Of God Has To Say About Disciplining Children

  • 20/10 BLINDNESS

    "Look to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” Isaiah 45:22 (Amplified Bible)

  • THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN

    Sin Will Always Carry You Further Than You Want To Go And Keep You Longer Than You Want To Stay!

  • THE CONCEPT OF LUCK

    Are We Living As Pawns Of Random Chance?

  • THE JEWISH NEW YEAR AND THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH

    Is There A Scriptural Connection Between The Two?

  • RESISTING GOVERNMENT

    How Should A Christian Interpret Romans 13:1-7?

  • THE PARADOX OF THE CROSS

    The Sovereignty Of God Exhibited In Jesus Christ’s Total Submission

  • AN EXPLANATION OF HELL FROM THE SCRIPTURES

    What Does The Bible Really Say About That Place And Those Who Will Wind Up There?

  • AMAZING GRACE

    A Great Hymn, But An Infinitely Greater Doctrine

  • GOD, SIN, AND SALVATION

    Three Topics All Men Ponder

     

  • STRONG DELUSION

    “What Is Truth?”—Pontius Pilate (John 18:38)

     

  • GODLY WISDOM VERSUS HUMAN KNOWLEDGE

    The Fear Of The Lord Is The Beginning Of Wisdom…” Psalm 111:10

     

  • THE TREASURES OF DARKNESS

    As part of God’s judgment the antichrist will experience some sort of attack on his person—perhaps an assassination attempt—and will lose the use of one arm and his right eye, thereby rendering him a person of “fierce countenance.” And I am convinced his name or title will also have an association with the sun just like Cyrus, because as Satan incarnate he will be the ultimate illuminated man!

     

  • CAUGHT BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

    “No Man Can Serve Two Masters…” Matthew 6:24(a)

  • UNCERTAIN RICHES

    Do You Know The Meaning Of “Fiat” Money?

  • A SAILOR’S BEST FRIEND

    During A Storm An Anchor Comes In Handy!

  • ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY SURE?

    A Skunk Can Claim To Be A Duck, But Tie The Feet Of Both, Throw Them Into The Water, And The One Who Stinks Will Sink!

  • CONTENTMENT
  • “…for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” Phil.4:11(b) (KJV).

  • CHARACTER
  • What We Truly Are When No One Is Watching

  • COMMITMENT TO CHRIST

    Keeping our priorities straight.

  • SALVATION VERSUS CHURCH DENOMINATIONS

    Will Being A Baptist, Methodist, Catholic, Etc., Get You To Heaven?

  • ARE THE FLAMES OF HELL LITERAL?

    The concept of a place of eternal torment after death is universally abhorrent. Our fallen and depraved nature is such that we think of ourselves as being basically good and the “mistakes” we make in life are not bad enough to merit such punishment. And that tendency to look at ourselves through rose colored glasses is the reason why it is difficult to find anyone in prison who will admit they are guilty as charged.

  • PERFORMING MIRACLES

    The dictionary definition of a miracle is: “1. An event that seems impossible to explain by natural laws and so is regarded as supernatural in origin or as an act of God.” (Webster’s II, New Riverside University Dictionary, copyright 1984, ISBN 0-395-33957-X).

    I find it highly interesting that in their definition the editors of the dictionary made a distinction between “…supernatural in origin or as an act of God.” They did not, as is the case with nearly everyone today, lump the two together (supernatural in origin and an act of God) by assuming that if it is a miracle God did it!

  • THE ELIJAH COMPLEX

    As our world seems to be spinning out of control and newspaper headlines continue to proclaim more bad news, it is easy for believers to feel alone. The core doctrines of Christendom at large have all but completely deviated from those taught in the Bible and a materialistic “feel-good” faith is the comfortable cocoon they have spun for themselves. Like a powerful narcotic, spiritual ignorance coupled with satanic deception is lulling them into a dreamy sense of personal piety and well being.

  • GOD’S “CHESS MATCH” WITH SATAN

    My personal belief is that the “anointed cherub that covereth” (Ez.28:12-16)—evidently the chief among the cherubim who later became Satan—learned of God’s ultimate plan prior to the foundation of the world.

  • HYPOCRITES IN THE CHURCH

    “…Thou Shalt Not Be As The Hypocrites Are…” (Excerpt from Matthew 6:5, KJV)

    Hypocrisy among those of us who profess Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior continues to be a hindrance to unbelievers. And that problem has probably never been more succinctly stated than when Ghandi of India reportedly said this about Christianity: "I like their Christ. I do not like their Christians. Their Christians are so unlike their Christ."

  • ASHAMED TO BE A HUMAN

    These days I often find myself wistfully thinking about heaven and home, because the horrific events unfolding around the world—“man’s inhumanity to man”—tend to amplify the wondrous prospect of being with my Lord and Savior.

  • SUPPORTING MISSIONARIES

    News reports over the past few days have included accounts of the self-made millionaire contractor from West Virginia who won the largest lottery jackpot in history. The size of the lump sum payoff (over 100 million after taxes!) was cause enough to stir public interest, but the man's stated intent to give a tithe (10%) to his Church (Church of God) has generated even more articles. The two or three pastors apparently in line to receive the money have been interviewed and say they are eagerly awaiting the funds--having many projects where it can be put to good use. But surely there are others who join with me in shaking our heads in disbelief and wondering how such an unthinkable and unscriptural attitude could be expressed by men who profess to serve God?
