The Innocence of A Child

Matthew 18:2-3 (KJB)   And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,  3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

What exactly does “become as little children…” mean in this scripture verse?

A little child often has uninhibited trust.  He or she is not bogged down by doubts, fears, and questions.  ...

My Sheep Heed and Follow

John 10:27 (KJB)   My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.

There really is no room for doubt or lagging in the mind and heart of those who are God’s sheep.  This short verse succinctly says it all: “My sheep hear my voice…” and “they follow me…”

Living a godly life is just that simple, yet so spiritually complex!

God inspired this short verse to define His sheep.  They are obvious because ...

True Love Breeds Action

True Love Breeds Action

1 John 3:18 (KJB)   My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

Sincere love will certainly demonstrate itself in action.  Words are flowery but cheap and easily discounted.

Tell me you love me and perhaps it is true, but certainly words can be cheap!.

Show me you love me and your action cements this truth in deeds.

Those who have the love of God at work in their softened ...

A Mark of Protection

A Mark of Protection

Genesis 4:15 (KJB)   And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

Cain was the first murderer as was divinely inspired to be recorded in God’s Word.

Did the fact that he killed his brother cause God to disown Cain marking him as offensive, sinful, and for cautioning others to stay away from him?  ...

Strangers and Aliens were To Assimilate

Leviticus 19:33-35 (KJB)   And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.  34 But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.  35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in weight, or in measure.

Yes, God ...

Bad News Was Made Spiritually Profitable

John 16:7-8 (KJB)   Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.  8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment.

Jesus Christ is speaking to His disciples about the near future.  He is giving ...

Test Yourself Against Truth

August 13, 2017

Test Yourself Against Truth

2 Corinthians 13:5 (KJB)   Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

This verse does not say to be sure to fully examine the lives of others.

“Spiritual investigating” among your friends, neighbors, and even acquaintances, strangers, and especially enemies seem to be a popular past time for many today, but doing so is not of ...

God’s Perfect and Permissive Will

Genesis 1:28 (KJB)   And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God desires to bless and spiritually blossom each person through procreation.  Having offspring serves to multiply man’s presence in this world through natural reproduction.  According to ...

A Man is Naturally Identified as A Sinner from his Birth

A Man is Naturally Identified as A Sinner from his Birth

Job 14:1 (KJB)   Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

All mankind is naturally born a sinner.

Sinning comes naturally for every man.

Being moral, godly, and righteous is not included in the innate character of any man, but being immoral, evil, and wicked is certainly prominent and prolific in his natural life.

A man is not born an alcoholic.

A man is not born ...

No Excuse for Unbelief

No Excuse for Unbelief

Romans 1:19-20 (KJB)   Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.

God planted many reflections of who He is into creation.  If a man only chooses to look on ...
