Pleasant to The Eyes but Troubling to The Heart

Pleasant to The Eyes but Troubling to The Heart

Genesis 3:6 (KJB) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

I am sure you are aware of many things that are pleasing and pleasant to the eyes ...

God Gave You a Purpose and Responsibility

God Gave You a Purpose and Responsibility

Genesis 2:15 (KJB) And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

I hope you sincerely understand that God did not place you on this earth to sit and sour, to nap, or lounge in the sun.  God has a purpose for your life.  In fact, there is a purpose attached to the life of every man.

Yes, you were born ...

But God Was

January 16th, 2018

But God Was

Acts 7:9 (KJB) And the patriarchs, moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him.

There is one word in this sentence that changes the entire meaning of every other word and the eternal direction of this verse:

but God was with him…” this phrase is tucked into the end of this scripture verse.  The word but is the key to grasping the understanding intentioned by God.  Even though Joseph’s immediate circumstances turner rather sour, ...

You Cannot Walk Through a Closed Door

You Cannot Walk Through a Closed Door

John 10:7 (KJB) Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

The door of the sheep is God’s door for the salvation of lost souls.  It is a wide open gate for any man who shall choose to place his personal faith in the power and presence of God.  However, as wide open it is, it is spiritually shuttered to any person ...

God’s Blessings Are Always Spiritually Rich

January 14th, 2018

God’s Blessings Are Always Spiritually Rich

Proverbs 10:22 (KJB) The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.

God’s blessings are spiritually prosperous and a godly man always gains many eternal riches.  Not only does a man prosper, both in this world and in the eternal realm, but he receives no sorrow from God.

Many people wrongly associate riches with financial gain.  While God can and sometimes does bless a man financially, this verse does ...

Saul Could See the Wise Spiritual Nature at Work in David

January 13th, 2018

Saul Could See the Wise Spiritual Nature at Work in David

1 Samuel 18:14-15 (KJB) And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him. 15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him.

Do you ever meet another person whose very presence shines vividly with the identity and purpose of Christ?  Godly people are few and far between in this spiritually dark world.  Why, because many people ...

Shining as the Greatest Diamond Ever

January 12th, 2018

Shining as the Greatest Diamond Ever

Revelation 21:11 (KJB) Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal.

A man cannot even begin to imagine the intensity of the wondrous shining glory of God.  A man can relate to admiring a brilliant karat diamond ring, or how the early morning sun filters into a window, a star in the sky, or the illumination and beauty of ...

God Perfects a Man

God Perfects a Man

Hebrews 5:8-9 (KJB) Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.

God does not “wave a magic wand” and “poof” makes a saved man be obedient.

Obedience to the things of God takes faith, commitment, and spiritual stamina from every man, woman, or child who desires to eternally walk with God.  God ...

How Can a Man Give God Less Than His Best?

January 10th, 2018

How Can a Man Give God Less Than His Best?

1 Samuel 12:24 (KJB) Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.

Think about the spiritual magnitude of this verse!  If a man steps back from viewing his life through any of his immediate and pressing situations, choosing to view his life from God’s perspective life begins to clear up and make sense.

Take a moment ...

Moved by Godly Fear

January 9th, 2018

Moved by Godly Fear

Hebrews 11:7 (KJB) By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

The presence of fear either paralyzed or promotes action.  There is a godly palpable reaction that brings God honor and glory and there is an ungodly reaction that opposes God, thereby ...
