Msg#1618 A Psalmists Four Instructions

Msg#1619 Foreshadowing Christ

What The Bible Says Good Samaritan’s Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice God’s Hebrew poetry has depth not penetrated by the casual listener. “Give ear, O my people, to my laws incline your ears to my mouth” (Ps 78:1).

Msg#1620 Baptized for the Dead?

Msg#1621 Why KJB Only?

What The Bible Says Good Samaritan’s Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice All modernists ecumenical Bibles completely leave out twenty verses that have always been in the Holy Bible.

Msg#1616 Jumping Jehoshaphat

What The Bible Says Good Samaritan’s Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice “Jumping Jehoshaphat” was an expression often heard and it originated because a king of Judah jumped into bed with Ahab, the vilest of the kings of Israel. “Can’t”, “Quit”, and “Compromise” should be eliminated from a Christian’s vocabulary. A Baptist pastor memorably said, […]

Msg#1614 In Remnants Not Mega-Majorities

What The Bible Says Good Samaritan’s Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice Gideon was likely concerned about facing off against the Midianites with only 32,000 soldiers; they would be outnumbered by more than three-to-one.
