End Of The Law

June 22, 2018

End Of The Law

Romans 10:4 (KJB) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the law.  The Old Testament Law cannot be accomplished by mankind on his or her own.  No man can even come close to keeping God’s law.  Only God can perfectly keep the law.  A man will utterly fail in any attempt to regard the laws of God as its divine purpose is ...

Because of His Holiness

Because of His Holiness

1 Peter 1:15-16 (KJB)   But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;  16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Because God is holy is the only reason a man should desire to live a holy life.  The moving motivation for living right, being right, and doing right only comes from having a personal relationship with God.

Without knowing God personally, a man ...

For HIS Name Sake

For HIS Name Sake

Psalm 23:3 (KJB)   He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Everything a godly man does is to be for the sole purpose of bringing glory and honor to God.

Yes, every last thing.

Nothing is to be for self-gratification, or self-honor, or for uplifting another man.  It is all solely for pointing to the goodness and grace of God.  Regrettably, not many professing Christians clearly understand this important spiritual ...

Establish Righteousness in the Gates

Amos 5:15 (KJB)   Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.

The apostle Amos encouraged the ancient leaders of his time to call for godliness and proper judgment in their land. The leaders and magistrates of cities sat in the gates where every individual had to pass as he or she entered the ...

Teachable Moments

Teachable Moments

2 Timothy 2:22 (KJB)   Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Timothy, Paul’s friend and brother in Christ was a young respectable man.  The Bible tells us his mother Lois and his grandma Eunice (2 Timothy 1:5) raised Timothy up in great faith in God.

Paul was using a “teachable moment” with Timothy for highlighting the importance of fleeing wicked lusts which naturally rage ...

Righteousness Only Comes by God

June 7th, 2017

Righteousness Only Comes by God

Galatians 2:21 (KJB)   I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Paul is trying to clear lingering confusion about mixing law and grace.  Attempting to blend the two together only serves to frustrate the grace of God.  That is precisely why God sent His Only Son to die on Calvary.  His unmerited favor can affect man with His righteousness for the keeping ...

There are important spiritual truths in this verse.

The first truth is that evening had come in the setting of this verse.  ...

God’s Opposition to Idolatry

God has an assortment of both spiritual and physical weapons stored in His armory.

This verse is speaking of a time when God was outraged with the Chaldeans.  This ancient people group chose to strive in opposition to Him in the land ...

Judicious Biblical Decisions

April 6th, 2017

Judicious Biblical Decisions

Psalm 106:3 (KJB)   Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

Right judgment means making decisions based upon truths of God.  Godly choices are based upon the righteousness of God.  All too often a man makes a “fly by night” decision running on the fuel of emotion, rather than taking valuable time to discern spiritual direction from God.

Mankind must be in the daily business of carefully judging each decision he makes.  He ...
