Marveling at the incarnation of the Son

Hebrews 10:5 says, “…a body You have prepared for Me.” This text indicates a wonderful truth related to both creation and redemption. The Father prepared a body (i.e., creation) for the Son to assume in order to accomplish His work (i.e., redemption). Galatians 4:4-6 adds:   4 But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, 5 so  [ Read More ]

Praise the Father for what He does through the Son

Paul’s words in Ephesians 1:8-10 come in an immediate context of praise to the Father (Eph. 1:3). The Father is to be praised due to comprehensive redemption in the Son (Eph. 1:7-12). The Son’s redemptive work affects everything (Eph. 1:10). According to wider canonical teaching, the Son functions as the last Adam (1 Cor. 15:45). He is the one who is head of all things (Eph. 1:22) and sums up  [ Read More ]

Besides Christ I see nothing, I hear nothing

“Faith, therefore, is a certain steadfast beholding, which looks upon Christ alone, the conqueror of sin and death and the giver of righteousness, salvation, and eternal life…So, if I would find comfort and life, when I am at the point of death, I must do nothing else but apprehend Christ, and look at Him, and say: I believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who suffered, was crucified, and  [ Read More ]

The Inter-Advental Period

The period of time between the resurrection and Second Coming of Christ is marked by at least two realities – the wrath of God against sin (Rom. 1) and the grace of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a mixed epoch of history where two worlds exist at the same time – the old world, in which men are born in sin with souls and bodies that  [ Read More ]

Semper Reformanda: “reformed and always reforming” Dr. Michael Horton

What does this commonly used phrase mean? There is some confusion over its meaning and use in our day. Here are the first words of Dr. Horton’s article: “If you’ve been in Protestant circles for very long, whether conservative or liberal, you may have heard the phrase “reformed and always reforming” or sometimes just “always reforming.” I hear it a lot these days, especially from friends who want our Reformed  [ Read More ]

The Lord’s Supper as Means of Grace

Here is a link to a discussion about my blog posts and message at the ARBCA GA concerning the Lord’s Supper as Means of Grace. Read it here. This is important.

The Headship of Christ as it Relates to the Old and New Creations

That Paul views Christ as head of all things created is clear from Ephesians 1:22, “And He [i.e., the Father] put all things in subjection under His [i.e., the exalted Redeemer’s] feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church.” According to my understanding of Ephesians 1:10, the exalted Christ (“Him” at the end of v.9) has been stationed by the Father as the chief executive officer  [ Read More ]
