Are You Living “Beside Yourself” or Beside God?

September 13th, 2016

Are You Living “Beside Yourself” or Beside God?

And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad. (Acts 26:24 KJV)

Festus was claiming that Paul was deranged, or had come unhinged.  To Festus, Paul’s actions seemed maddening and he even went a step further to blame his much learning as the root cause of his crazy actions.

Feeding one’s intelligence with higher learning should broaden one’s ...

Proceed with Spiritual Caution

For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. (Romans 14:7-8 KJV)

Your life is not your own.  It belongs wholly to God, and this certainty does not depend upon whether you choose to acknowledge Him as God or not.  Your life belonging to ...

Man Is No Match For Evil Forces

Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man ...

What Do You “Hang Your Hat On” In This World?

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. (John 15:19 KJV)

God never described walking with Him along the narrow pathway to be anything but ripe for persecution and hate dished out by fans of the god of this world.  If you profess to ...

God’s Wrath is Not Discriminating

February 11th 2016

God’s Wrath is Not Discriminating

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; (Romans 1:18 KJV)

The wrath of God is not selective or discriminating against sin.

This verse clearly says: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men…

It does not state that God will pick and choose certain sins to declare His great wrath upon.  God will judge ...

God gives us spiritual armor for any battle.

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) (2 Corinthians 10:4 KJV)

Yes, there is continual warfare between our flesh and our spiritual nature as we sojourn upon this earth.  Spiritual skirmishes are nothing to scoff at or ignore.  They are real battles wounding and maiming God’s soldiers who have not properly armed themselves with the armor of God and ...

This Psalmist is stating in this scripture verse that even the lowliest job in the house of God was better than trying to be productive while ...

Are you fellow-shipping in the light with God rather than holding hands in darkness with god?

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. (Ephesians 5:11 KJV)

To have spiritual godly fellowship with another is to enjoy the companionship and company of another who shares the same view of God, including the nature of sin, repentance, and of eternal life and death.  A person who has placed their faith in the work of Jesus Christ upon ...

Does your life have the stamp of self-worth or “God worth” on it?

For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth. (2 Corinthians 10:18 KJV)

Many people desire to purport their own worthiness.  We live in a day of focusing intently upon “self-worth” rather than “God worth.”  Many desire to “toot their own horn” spouting off about their own value in relation to the dark standards and principles of the god of this world.

The real ...

There are many con men and women operating in this world finagling their way into one sweet worldly deal after another benefiting themselves while leaving fools hanging on for dear life at the end of a raw deal.  The ...
