God Perfects a Man

God Perfects a Man

Hebrews 5:8-9 (KJB) Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.

God does not “wave a magic wand” and “poof” makes a saved man be obedient.

Obedience to the things of God takes faith, commitment, and spiritual stamina from every man, woman, or child who desires to eternally walk with God.  God ...

At the Commandment of The Lord

Numbers 9:23 (KJB) At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed: they kept the charge of the LORD, at the commandment of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

God led the Israelites by His commandments.  First, they were opposed to hearing and applying God’s direction and correction through His servant Moses.  This chosen indifference and disobedience to the will of God ...

YES, GOD! A Selfless Example

Matthew 26:39 (KJB) And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

Oh, how often do we say a big NO to God?

NO God, I want it my way!

Sadly, many people who profess a personal relationship with God inwardly desire to serve a god of their own making.  ...

Noah Took God At His Word

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 ...

Spiritual Benefits Are Both Plenty and Perpetual

Revelation 22:14 (KJB)   Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

He and she can ...

Not a “spiritual Pep Rally”

2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJB)   If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

God is not looking for a “spiritual pep rally” or a simple outward show of allegiance to Him.  He is looking for sincerely humbled men and women of God who are ...

Putting the Spiritual Cart Before the Horse

Putting the Spiritual Cart Before the Horse

Proverbs 21:3 (KJB)   To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

Righteousness and judgement are vital and eternally entwined in the perfect character of God.  He is both a righteous God as well as a God who must judge sin.  Making godly decisions, having a direction based upon God’s commandments and precepts, and offer willing sacrifices are all important as the man and woman of God mature and ...

Asking God Why? When? Where? And How?

Acts 9:13-16 (KJB)   Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem:  14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name.  15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and ...

Calvary’s Transaction is Complete

Philippians 2:8-10 (KJB)   And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:  10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

“Being found in fashion as a man…”

Yes, Jesus Christ ...

Fearing God Brings Life

Fearing God Brings Life

Matthew 10:28 (KJB)   And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

The fires of Hell will never be extinguished but will be raging perpetually. All who end up in the midst of these persistent flames will wish over and over again he or she was in fellowship with God, or at the very ...
