Faith is Taking God at His Word

2 Peter 3:3-4 (KJB) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

Faithfully serving God is taking God at His Word despite what you can see with your eyes.  It is looking beyond our immediate circumstances ...

Moved by Godly Fear

January 9th, 2018

Moved by Godly Fear

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.

The presence of fear either paralyzed or promotes action.  There is a godly palpable reaction that brings God honor and glory and there is an ungodly reaction that opposes God, thereby ...

By Faith Eternal Dividends Accumulate

Hebrews 11:5-6 (KJB)   By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.  6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Faith is a display of confidence in ...

The Mystery of Godliness

December 21st, 2017

The Mystery of Godliness

1 Timothy 3:16 (KJB)   And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

A man cannot begin to understand all the spiritual truths and complexities of God.  That is where genuine faith comes into play.  A man can see, hear, or read wonderful things of God but he is unable ...

The Price of Redemption

November 22, 2017

The Price of Redemption

Ephesians 2:8-9 (KJB)   For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

What portion of redemption can a man pay for himself?  Now, that’s a great question which has an absolute and spiritually awesome answer!  A man cannot purchase any portion of his salvation.  The cost has already been paid in full by the willing spirit of ...

Noah Took God At His Word

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.

Faith, when pared down to the “nitty-gritty” is the difference between spiritually investing in God and desiring eternal life or choosing to invest in ourselves and the dark tactics ...

Faithless Failures Do Not Have to Be Finales but Stepping Points

October 24th, 2017

Faithless Failures Do Not Have to Be Finales but Stepping Points

1 Peter 1:7-8 (KJB)   That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:  8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.

The Apostle Peter ...

Faith and Fear Go Hand in Hand

September 9th, 2017

Faith and Fear Go Hand in Hand

Hebrews 11:1 (KJB)   Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith calls for you to place your trust in something that you cannot see but, none the less, you believe is real or spiritually substantial.  A man can choose to place faith or fear into something that he cannot see but believes it is or will be real or tangible at some point in time.

Both ...

Abraham Staggered Not

Romans 4:20-22 (KJB)   He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;  21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.  22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Abraham believed God through faith, having no doubt that God’s promises would come to fruition just as He promised.  Abraham did not have any lingering doubts that God would ...

The Innocence of A Child

The Innocence of A Child

Matthew 18:2-3 (KJB)   And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,  3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

What exactly does “become as little children…” mean in this scripture verse?

A little child often has uninhibited trust.  He or she is not bogged down by doubts, fears, and questions.  ...
