Two Are Better Than One!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (KJB)   Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.  11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?  12 And if one prevail against him, two shall ...

A Spiritually Beautiful Woman

1 Timothy 2:9-10 (KJB)   In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;  10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

Paul speaks of women who shine with spiritual beauty, modesty, and good works.

I am

June 21st, 2017

I am

John 8:58 (KJB)   Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

I am.

Two simple sounding words, but they are portly and supernaturally powerful.

The statement Jesus is making is that he has always been since the beginning, before the patriarch Abraham, and always present.  I am is spoken in the present tense because God has no past tense.  He was present in His deity before creation, is present today, and will always ...

The Hour Unknown

Matthew 24:36-37 (KJB)   But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Seasons have distinguishing signs.  Summer has heat and sun.  Winter has snow and cold.  Fall has crisp weather and falling leaves.  Spring has singing birds and pleasant ...

Open Wide

Psalm 81:10-12 (KJB)   I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.  11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.  12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.

Anyone who has ever been a parent can relate to being ignored by his child.

Our Enemy Is Spiritually Wicked

June 17th, 2017

Our Enemy Is Spiritually Wicked

Ephesians 6:12 (KJB)   For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Our enemies in this world are not pansies.  They are dangerous and deadly.  They are organized and at work in many places, including in positions of leadership and authority.  Our enemies are not really the people around us who act out, or that we ...

A Great Fish

A Great Fish

Jonah 1:17 (KJB)   Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Many of you have likely witnessed a whale swimming and playing in the ocean from the safety of a nearby boat.  Jonah had an experience with a whale or a similar ancient mammal, in a manner that was way more upfront and personal, than simply viewing it from ...
