Paul was intimately familiar with persecution.  He faced tough circumstances while upholding the name of Jesus Christ again and again.  It was inspired by God to ...

Calling on Greek Gods

Acts 14:11-13 (KJB)   And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.  12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.  13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the ...

Facing Death with Confidence

September 16th, 2016

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:7-8 KJV)

These verses clearly substantiate that anyone who has been quickened alive unto new spiritual life while alive on this earth will immediately be ushered into the glorious presence of God in the eternal realm upon succumbing to his physical death.

These verses discount the belief in ...

Paul is pleading with his fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to separate from any who are ...

Will you be found worthy or wanting?

But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. (1 Corinthians 9:27 KJV)

Paul was constantly reminding himself to practice what he preached!  This is spiritual discipline at its best!  Paul understood foremost that it was not a good representation for the Gospel, and secondly towards other people, to preach one way of living ...

God needs missionaries in churches, back yards, and across the world.

Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. (Philippians 4:15-17 KJV)

The Philippian church had ...

Take Up Your Cross May 13th 2015

Paul was unassuming and meek.

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

(1 Corinthians 15:9-10 KJV)

Paul was truly a ...
