God’s Promises, His Law, and His Wrath Against Sin

Romans 4:13-15 (KJB) For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.

There Is Nothing More Miserable than an Unrepentant Sinner

Psalm 38:1-3 (KJB)   A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O LORD, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.  2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.  3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

Conviction is Pointed and Spiritually Powerful

Acts 7:54 (KJB) When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.

Cut to the heart, that is one grave spiritual wound created by words.

When a person is cut to the heart he is injured in the depths of his soul.  It is not a physical blood gushing wound but a spiritual infliction inducing great pain by the truth filled words of God.  This ...

God Does the “Spiritual Laundry”

Psalm 51:2 (KJB) Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

This is one of many Psalms of David who was both praying and pleading with God to remove the dark blot of his blaringly obvious sin.  It was an ever-present reminder of his grievous choice to sin against God.  David was heartbroken over his sin knowing that only God could remove it from his life.

Yes, God is the only one who ...

Cut Off and Cast It Away

Matthew 5:30 (KJB) And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

This verse seems to indicate that a person should cut off their right hand if it causes them to sin.  The proper application of this verse is not literally speaking of a ...
