Walk Worthy of Your Calling

Walk Worthy of Your Calling

Ephesians 4:1-3 (KJB) I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

God has a plan for every person.  Walking worthy is to walk with God rather than choosing to walk in opposition to Him.  Walking worthy ...

Till Thou Return unto the Ground

Till Thou Return unto the Ground

Genesis 3:19 (KJB) In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

 God gave Adam important certainties in this verse.  Beginning with the truth that there is never such a thing as retiring from God’s work and from doing some sort of labor (physical and mental work) in this world.  ...

All Means All, Not Just Some

All Means All, Not Just Some

John 6:37 (KJB) All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

This verse is one that deceiving hearts use frequently to trip unsuspecting or biblically unknowledgeable people up about the nature of God’s election.  It is used for falsely implying that God has a special selection process where He divinely chooses some people, but not others, for quickening spiritually ...

“Pseudo Light” Matched Against Genuine Eternal Light

“Pseudo Light” Matched Against Genuine Eternal Light

Luke 11:34-36 (KJB) The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. 35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. 36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of ...

Crookedness and Corruption Always Catch Up with Con Men

Crookedness and Corruption Always Catch Up with Con Men

Proverbs 11:3 (KJB) The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

A crooked man can only get away with selling a worthless bill of goods for a relatively short period of time.  Eventually, his choice to be dishonest will catch up with Him.  A con man is a tricky man who is good at deceiving others.

However, any person who chooses to identify with ...

Perhaps Noah’s Obedience Seemed Senseless…. Until the Very Day It Began to Rain

Perhaps Noah’s Obedience Seemed Senseless…. Until the Very Day It Began to Rain

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.

Choosing to trust God and follow Him in faith may seem idiotic and irrational to those who do not personally know Him.  ...

Think About THESE Things

October 13th, 2018

Think About THESE Things

Philippians 4:8 (KJB) Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

This scripture verse contains a directive to guard and polish our thinking.  Those who profess a relationship with Christ have agreed with God about sin and permitted Him to remove ...

“It is Not for You to Know…”

October 12th, 2018

“It is Not for You to Know…”

Acts 1:7-8 (KJB) And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

There are many “Curious ...

Though He Wist it Not

Though He Wist it Not

Leviticus 5:17 (KJB) And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

“I didn’t mean to do it…”

“It was an accident…”

“It wasn’t my fault…”

“I made a mistake…”

Oh, how easy it is to attempt to transfer or redirect guilt from self and place it squarely upon the shoulder ...

Carnal Clucking and Contention on This Earth

October 10th, 2018

Carnal Clucking and Contention on This Earth

James 4:1 (KJB) From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

Oh, the fighting and wars that rage on in the weakness of our flesh.  A child of God desires to do the right thing in his heart, but a spiritual war adamantly rages in his flesh.  Though he or she has been quickened with new spiritual life his or ...
