Are you nodding off in this world?

And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour? Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words. (Mark 14:37-39 KJV)

Jesus was speaking to Simon Peter, James, and John who had all drifted off to sleep asleep when they ...

Living righteously for God is presenting Him as salt and light upon the earth.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. (Matthew 5:13 KJV)

Salt has unique properties.  It is a versatile compound used for many different things in our world today.  Salt cures meat, flavors food, is ...

Jesus faced rejection on this earth even from those closest to Him.

Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did ...

Do you often forge ahead of God according to faulty human reasoning?

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalms 27:14 KJV)

Man is naturally programmed by the god of this world to always be busy and moving about, to be self-sufficient and mentally prepared with a ready answer from a database of humanistic garbage collected in this world.  The god of this world desires for us ...

Have you been born twice; physically and spiritually?

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. (John 3:7 KJV)

“To marvel not…” is to not stand in awe or amazement that Jesus would say “Ye must be born again…”

It should come as no surprise to a child of God that being spiritually born again first requires death.  Mankind is naturally born spiritually dead since sin was introduced upon this earth.   A sprouting of new life in ...

Do you have fruits of the Spirit mounting and maturing in your life?

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Titus 1:16 KJV)

It has been said that “talk is cheap…” and this scripture verse from the book of Titus is biblical proof.  It is easier for mankind to profess having a spiritual relationship with God but much harder to prove it or back it ...

Are you paralyzed by fear? 

And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. ...

Are you being bound or restrained by the lure of sin upon your life?

And the army of the Chaldees pursued after the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho: and all his army were scattered from him. So they took the king, and brought him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah; and they gave judgment upon him. And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, ...

Bathsheba A Beautiful Woman

A Naked Bathing Beauty Who was Chosen to Bear a Future King

 

Bathsheba was on her rooftop uncovered and bathing to purify herself from her uncleanness in the cool of the evening.  It is not clearly known if she understood she could be seen, and that she was being eyed by David from upon a terrace above.  However, Bathsheba was a married woman whose husband was gone at the moment serving among troops on the battlefield and at ...

But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them ...
