Grace and works cannot be united in God’s salvation at any point. The Word of God is crystal clear in asserting this fact. Salvation is either altogether by grace or altogether by works (Romans 11:6).

Fear Not, Poor, Trembling Souls Don Fortner

(Tune: #497 — When I Can Read My Title Clear — CM)

1.     Fear not, poor, trembling souls, who seek

Christ Jesus crucified;

He knows your need, the grace you seek, —

He, who for sinners died.


2.     Fear not, for you are in the hand

Of Jesus crucified;

When sin, and hell, and earth, withstand,

You may in Him confide.


3.     Fear not, for you are known and loved

By Jesus crucified;

By faith His pow’r and grace are proved

By all who in Him hide.


4.     Fear not, your ransomed souls are one

With Jesus crucified;

In every state He knows His own,

And well protects His bride.


5.     Fear not, for all who seek have found,

In Jesus crucified,

Salvation free, a Savior crowned,

And grace to justify!


Iron Teeth, Ten Horns, a Little Horn,

And a Horn with Eyes

Daniel 7:8-9


In chapters 7 and 8 Daniel tells us of the prophetic visions he had during the days of that wicked king of Babylon, Belshazzar, Nebuchadnezzar’s son. So terrible were the visions given to Daniel that he fainted and was sick for many days. Would to God that we might be so moved by the thought of Divine judgment, the thought of sinners perishing under the wrath of God!

      Concerning those visions much speculation has been made, many books have been written, and countless sermons have been preached. I have a novel suggestion: — Perhaps we would be wise simply to bow to God’s purpose and wait, wait for Him to explain this and all other things not clearly revealed by performing them. We should never presume to know that which is not written in the Book of God.

      We should rest in what is here written concerning our Redeemer's Kingdom. We should be fully satisfied with God’s revelation. We are here told that our Lord Jesus has a kingdom which shall be forever and ever. What more can be wanted? But much more is given. — This kingdom and dominion and the greatness of it shall be given to the people, the saints, of the Most High!

      Let others gratify their lusts by trying to figure out every imaginable thing about the precise significance of horns and winds, more horns, and little horns with eyes. Our hearts ought to be ravished with Him whom Daniel saw, “the Ancient of Days,” our great, Almighty Savior and God. Oh, that we were always ravished with the might and purity of His Being, the sovereignty and glory of His dominion, the justice and righteousness with which He judges all, and the glory of His coming as the Son of Man in His second advent!

When we read the Book of God, let us always look for Christ. Take every inclination of your mind to be taken up with trees, and nations, and beasts, and angels, and demons, and flying fowls, and swimming things, and creeping things, — Take every inclination of your mind to investigate lesser things than the Christ of God and His great salvation to be a satanic ploy to destroy your soul, turning you away from the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus!

            I do not mean that we should ignore anything in the Book of God; but I do mean that we should always look for Christ crucified in Holy Scripture, and leave secret things secret. That which God intends for us to know He has revealed. We should never guess what a text means. If God the Holy Spirit intends for us to know the precise meaning of any sentence in Holy Scripture, He has given the meaning in some other portion of Holy Scripture. If He has not given us the meaning, we should simply bow to His will and wait for Him to manifest all things at His appointed time.

Holy Scripture is to be treated with reverence. Give the beast’s iron teeth, the ten horns, the little horn, and the horn with eyes due consideration; but do not allow Satan to use them to keep you from worshipping the Ancient of Days in garments white as snow, and with hair like pure wool, sitting on a throne like a fiery flame!


Public Worship

Pastor Frank Tate

Hurricane Road Grace Church — Ashland, KY


My favorite days of the week are the days when public worship services are scheduled. God is to be worshiped every day, but public worship is so very necessary.

  • Our Lord Himself promised that He would be in our midst during the public worship service (Matthew 18:20).
  • The public worship service is where God’s sheep are fed and edified (built up) through the preaching of the Gospel (Ephesians 4:12).
  • The public worship service is where believers encourage each other and provoke each other to love and to good works (Hebrews 10:24-25).
  • The public worship service gives us the opportunity to sing the praises of our Redeemer and to make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

I pray that we will never take the blessed privilege of public worship for granted. God has not seen fit to put His Gospel and a true house of worship in every city and town, but in His mercy, He has given that blessing to us; and we are thankful!

Since we won’t do anything as important as public worship the rest of the week, I hope we will prepare our hearts to worship by praying about the service in advance. Let’s ask the Lord to bless the preacher in preaching and the hearers in hearing. Let’s ask the Lord to enable us to worship Him in spirit and in truth because that is the only way God can be worshiped (John 4:24).






“Salvation is of the Lord!”

Jonah 2:9


Salvation is wholly of grace; not only undeserved, but undesired by us, till God is pleased to awaken us to a sense of our need of it. And then we find everything prepared that our needs require, or our wishes can conceive; yea, that God has done exceedingly beyond what we could either ask or think.

Salvation is wholly of the Lord, and bears signatures of infinite wisdom, power, and goodness, which distinguish all His works from the puny imitations of men. It is every way worthy of God, a great, a free, a full, a sure salvation. It is great, whether we consider the objects, miserable and hell deserving sinners; the end, the restoration of such alienated creatures to His image and favor, to immortal life and happiness; or the means, the incarnation, humiliation, sufferings, and death of His beloved Son.

Salvation is free, without exception of persons or cases, without any conditions or qualifications, but such as He Himself performs in them, and bestows upon them.                                                                                                               — John Newton
