Chewed Up and Spit Out

Jeremiah 51:34 (KJB)   Nebuchadrezzar the king of Babylon hath devoured me, he hath crushed me, he hath made me an empty vessel, he hath swallowed me up like a dragon, he hath filled his belly with my delicates, he hath cast me out.

The nation of Judah looked back upon the persecution and horrible treatment they endured when captive in the hands of evil Nebuchadrezzar.   The Bible says they were devoured, crushed, made empty, swallowed ...

A Pig Will Always Be a Pig

A Pig Will Always Be a Pig

Proverbs 11:22 (KJB)   As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.

A gold nose ring on a lowly pig does not make it more attractive.  It does nothing to make its appearance any more striking.

Pigs were sometimes fitted with a ring in ancient times for preventing them from rooting up the ground with their nose.  This ring was not something elaborate and special, ...

Godly Desires and Duty

John 4:34 (KJB)   Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

Are you busy about doing the will of God in your life?  What keeps you going, what is your passion in life?  God did give each of us a purpose in this life.  He set your heart and my heart to follow a certain direction.  This is not just an outward experience, ...

God did not choose to form both man and woman without reason or void of an eternal order. Both were divinely created ...

Calvary – Triumph For All Eternity

Calvary – Triumph for All Eternity

Jesus Christ The Eternal King will live forever.  His resurrection from the grave forever beats the clutch of death.  Mankind left to himself without a personal relationship with God, will die physically, therefore, be found dead both spiritually and physically forever.

However, mankind has been given a new spiritual opportunity for possessing a new life which lasts forever.  There is no more death when a man personally knows and has a personal relationship with God.

The fragility ...

During His short earthly ministry, Jesus Christ was used to rejection.

He was accustomed to teaching people the Truth of God and watching many people fall ...

An Abomination to God

Oblivious to Impending Judgement

Jeremiah 8:5-7 (KJB)   Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.  6 I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.  7 Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the ...

Pride is Eternally Unhealthy

Pride is Eternally Unhealthy

Galatians 6:3 (KJB)   For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

Pride at work in the heart displays an attitude of “I am important and everything revolves around me.”

A prideful heart condition stands in stark contrast to a humble and submissive person having a godly heart condition.  A godly heart revolves around God.  Everything is about bringing honor and glory to Him and entertains no thought of self-worth.

Satan ...

Addictions and Ills Are Issues of the Heart

Addictions and Ills Are Issues of the Heart

 

Proverbs 4:23 (KJB) Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Addiction is a personal choice made by a man which enslaves him to a habit or practice with negative connotations, undesirable consequences, and stands in opposition to the solid truths of God.

An addiction to a substance or a habit can be temporarily appeased by applying worldly solutions which can certainly alleviate or deadening ...
