A Divine “Spiritual Pecking Order”

July 20th, 2017

A Divine “Spiritual Pecking Order”

Romans 13:1 (KJB)   Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

This scripture verse gives no room for any man to pay heed to any other authority other than that which God has divinely established.  Yes, there is such a thing as absolute authority.  It is found both in this world and forever in the eternal realm.

However, there ...

Rulers are to Be For Our Benefit Not Our Detriment

Rulers are to Be For Our Benefit Not Our Detriment

For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister ...

What Would You Be Willing to Give in Exchange for Your Life?

And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. (Job 2:4 KJV)

Mankind is fickle when his physical life is at stake.  He will often not stop at selling his soul, or the life of another, to try to preserve his own existence.  Self-preservation is an attempt to make life more palatable and pleasurable while ...

God Has Ultimate Authority Over Both Heaven and Earth.

February 25th 2016

God Has Ultimate Authority Over Both Heaven and Earth.

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29 KJV)

Peter was often an often impulsive fellow who strived to an obedient servant of God.  He and other apostles took a moment to consider, rather than reacting according to their emotions, paying attention to the Truth at work in this situation at hand.

Peter and the apostles understood there were two principals ...

Divisiveness Is a Tactic of This World

Divisiveness Is a Tactic of This World

And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. (Mark 3:24 KJV)

Division in this world comes by skin color, race, financial status, and many other civil boundaries.

Division severely weakens the strength of a country, world, and home.  Division causes opposition.

Spiritual cohesion wrapped snuggly in the authority of God acts as a glue.  It provides “spiritual resolve” always at work supernaturally to bind relationships and situations together.

If parents are operating ...

January 14th 2016

Is The “Rod of Correction” Swung in Your House?

The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame. (Proverbs 29:15 KJV)

Children both need, and inwardly desire, authority and boundaries laid down in their lives.  It is necessary children have an intimate knowledge of the authority and reproof of God, and secondly to answer to the godly authority and correction of their parents, followed last by teachers and other leaders all necessary ...

Take Up Your Cross February 6th 2015

Do you desire your own way; or the way of God?

And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I. And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death: Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver ...

Take Up Your Cross January 30th 2015

Are you living under the weak auspices of self-governing; or living in submission to the supernatural power and authority of God? 

For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. (Romans 10:3 KJV)

The Bible tells us righteousness comes from God.  Apart from Him there is not one ounce of goodness found in man.  Since the entrance of sin into this world mankind is naturally ...

Take Up Your Cross December 27th 2014

December 27th 2014

Living in submission to God is the opposite of living in enmity to the things of God according to the world’s values.

Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may ...

Living in a Foreign Country

Short of having a close and cherished relationship with God we often find ourselves in rough and ragged spiritual condition.  Without personal closeness to God mankind wavers about with a tepid spiritual temperature adrift in storms of life tossed about like a boat that has wandered away from the safety of the shore and is aimlessly tossed about in the waves of a storm.

The Bible talks about the prodigal son who chose to “live it up” as he ...
