Will There Be Witnesses to the Second Death?
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:14-15 KJV)

The Pattern of a Servant
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. (Matthew 23:11 KJV)
A pastor, called of God into the ministry, is meant to lead a church congregation as a servant, rather than an “over lord.” God led His disciples by the greatest example of being a humble servant.

Armed with His Sword
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. (Matthew 10:34 KJV)

Like Clouds Without Water
These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; (Jude 12 KJV)
This twelfth verse of Jude is speaking of those who are offering spiritual teaching without substance of Truth. Their teaching is false and lacking spiritual fortitude. This teaching is compared to clouds in the ... Continue Reading →

Sin separates and Sours
For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. (2 Corinthians 1:12 KJV)
A clear conscious before God comes with a great testimony, rejoicing from the heart, and spiritual freedom in God instead of being bound to the god of this world.
A heart and conscious which ... Continue Reading →

All Things Are from God
And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. (John 3:26-27 KJV)

You Will Likely Taste Death
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. (Hebrews 11:5 KJV)
Enoch did not taste death. You and I will surely face physical death. Unless, of course, Jesus Christ returns before the onset of our natural death.
The Bible says Enoch was translated:
“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see ... Continue Reading →
