His Everlasting Nature

Psalm 102:25-27 (KJB)   Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.  26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:  27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.

The Plumb Line

Psalm 33:10-11 (KJB)   The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.  11 The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.

God brings the opinions of man to nothing.

Science experiments of man blow up when pitted against the eternal nature of God.

The deductions and reasoning of man fall out and fade away.

The flowery philosophy of man sounds like ...

Perfection of God

Numbers 23:19 (KJB)   God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Balaam is speaking in this scripture verse about the never changing eternal character of God.  God is holy and righteous, far from the unappealing and dark nature of the heart of mankind.  God is forever perfect, ...

Reap The Rewards You Sow

Isaiah 3:8-9 (KJB)   For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory.  9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

God does provide rewards for the kind of life you and I choose to live ...

It is time to grow up!

1 Corinthians 13:11 (KJB)   When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Young children are immature by nature.

Adults are expected to grow and mature.

This is true whether you are talking about the natural man or the spiritual man.  Maturity is anticipated and expected to surface in the lives of young adults.

Paul ...

Ungodly Circumstances in This World

Wow!  Nothing can better describe the unholy circumstances found working in ...

Herod Hears John

Mark 6:19-20 (KJB)   Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:  20 For Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and observed him; and when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly.

I think it is fair to say that if Herodias had it her way she would have wasted no time in killing John because of his personal ...

Godly Viewpoint

Romans 6:20-22 (KJB)   For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.  21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.  22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Looking in the rear view mirror gives man a glimpse of his life before serving God.  ...

Rolling Up The “Spiritual Red Carpet”

Hosea 1:6-7 (KJB)   And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And God said unto him, Call her name Lo-ruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.  7 But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by ...

Sour and Self-Serving

Philippians 2:14-15 (KJB)   Do all things without murmurings and disputings:  15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.

Murmuring and complaining seems to be “the operating norm” in this world.  Individuals choosing to live according to the measuring stick of the god of this world are never satisfied with where they are at ...
