32 Things I Learned From Pastor Frank Hampton Jr.

The devotional leader does not need to give a sermon, that’s why we have a preacher.

The Remnant

 The days of Noah and Lot where very similar to the times that we are living in now; as men began to multiply on the face of the earth, so did their evil ways and the greatness of their wickedness would go on to impact and influence generations and generations to come. Sodom and Gomorrah, two great cities in that day, met all of the conditions to be destroyed by God’s Judgement of Fire and Brimstone. Today we are living in world that has greatly been affected by the sinful ways of man. 

What Shall This Generation Do?

The question before our generation is not whether or not God will have a church. It is whether or not we will be a part of it. Will we hold up the truth of God’s eternal word, or will we fold to the whims of our flesh, the lukewarm atmosphere of our time, and the spirits of unbelief?

What if You Are Wrong?

The stubbornness of truth serves as a constant condemnation to lives that take pause to reflect on it. As a result, multitudes choose to substitute the abhorrent conclusions that truth incurs with various beliefs concerning the very nature of it through subjecting ultimate truth to human interpretation. As the interpretations exponentially increase, so does the confusion. While many are trapped by their claim and cry of confusion, the sad reality is that there is absolutely no excuse for it. 

The Perishing of People

Sadly, there are many who cannot perceive the Church of God in her fullness. There are countless souls who are perishing in fellowship meetings, revivals, weekly services, and so on. They are perishing because there is not a vision of the church. They are perishing because they do not hear a message that will awaken them to their needs. They are perishing because they are not receiving the whole counsel of God. 

Guilty in One, Guilty in All

 The Supreme Court decision of a few months ago concerning the legality of homosexual marriage stirred my heart, as it indubitably did many others who profess to be Christians. However, I found myself stirred in a much different way than I even anticipated, as I fully expected the decision to go the way that it transpired. The common reaction was that of shock and bewilderment, and admittedly I was still greatly jolted by the reality of the decision after it was made. Yet, I found myself questioning how we came to a place in this country where such a sin is glorified and exalted. 

Pass or Fail

The selfishness and rebellion of men and women in religious institutions today is astounding. They have bought into one of the biggest lies the devil has ever told, which is that their understanding of God’s standard is more important than understanding what God truly meant.

The Church of Your Choice

There is a single source given to man that provides answers for every question contrived by man concerning the soul, this being the Word of God. However, mere reading of the Bible does not render every man a proper or correct interpretation. Then what does render a proper and correct interpretation? The answer is in the Word. “When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth” (John 16:13). 

What Will Matter

Living in eternity’s light will cause the earthly concerns to diminish greatly. The great day of Christ’s coming will make evident how vain life is for those who live for earthly enjoyments alone.

Hell

 Hell has become a subject overlooked in our world today. A myth for some, a by-word for others, but rarely given any serious thought by most, yet most will make hell their final destination.
