A Warning to Young Men

By James Brown Jr.


“Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:” —2 Peter 2:14 


We live in a pornographic world that is escalating predator behavior not only in men but women as well.  Every day the news is filled with aggressive sexual behavior that has led to all sorts of deviancy.

The Law Established by the Gospel

By John Gill
March 22, 1739

“Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid; yea, we establish the law.” —Romans 3:31

That vice and immorality, disobedience to the laws of God and men, prevail among us; and that practical religion and powerful godliness greatly decline, will he acknowledged by every serious, thoughtful, and considering Christian; but what are the springs and sources of this sad scene of things, or to what all this is to be ascribed, is not so generally agreed; in this men differ.

Dancing in Destruction

By James Brown Jr.
“See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:  Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.  And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:  For our God is a consuming fire.” –Hebrews 12:25-29

“The corruptions of heaven and earth will be purged by fire…” –John Calvin

The language here is very symbolic but it is evident we are dealing with the judgment of God upon the temporal reign of Satan, the kingdom of men and the dominion of sin.

We Will Not Be Silent

By James Brown

“For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.” –Isaiah 62:1

Secularists are increasingly demanding Christians retreat from the public square and remain in silence.  This has been a trend since the 1960's Cultural Revolution.  Of course, secularists are not demanding anything that the Church has not taught and demanded of itself for several decades.

CBN News recently broadcasted a report concerning the oppression of free speech in Britain.  While the climate in Britain against Christians is very hostile, we must remember it is not much better here in the United States.

Victory must be Won

By James Brown Jr.


“And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” —Matthew 16:18 

"We’re not accustomed to occupying defensive positions. It’s destructive to morale." —Lt. Gen. H. M. “Howlin’ Mad” Smith (USMC)


There was a day when the Church and the Marine Corps bore many similarities.  Both were disciplined, courageous and fierce warriors.  While these distinguishing marks are quickly fading away, they both still bear many similarities today as they are being led by women and overran by sodomites.

Nothing Else Matters

By James Brown Jr.
“Judge me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.  For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?  O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.  Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.  Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” —Psalm 43:1-5 

We live in dark times and the emptiness and despair of such a generation is enough to weigh down the strongest of Christian.  Like the Psalmist, we live in an ungodly nation that is dishonest and discriminatory against truth and righteousness.

Our End is Near

By James Brown Jr.

"For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her, They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments. They cried unto them, Depart ye; it is unclean; depart, depart, touch not: when they fled away and wandered, they said among the heathen, They shall no more sojourn there. The anger of the LORD hath divided them; he will no more regard them: they respected not the persons of the priests, they favoured not the elders. As for us, our eyes as yet failed for our vain help: in our watching we have watched for a nation that could not save us. They hunt our steps, that we cannot go in our streets: our end is near, our days are fulfilled; for our end is come." -Lamentations 4:13-18
