God’s Grace Brings Glory in Any Circumstance

God’s Grace Brings Glory in Any Circumstance

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV)

Spiritual and physical brokenness is ...

Eyes: The Light of the Body

There is not a camera manufactured by this world which can view and photograph the natural scenery including highlights and with the precision in which man’s natural vision can articulate.  A camera lens focuses light onto film, similar to a structure inside our eye called the cornea which focuses light onto a light-sensitive membrane called the retina.  Behind the cornea lies the iris housing the pupil whose job it is to expand to allow light to enter into the eye, ...

Sin Quickly Stifles and Burdens

Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope: (Isaiah 5:18 KJV)

Many people are dragging around excess baggage while trying hard to live the Christian life.  This often leads man to live a weak and ineffective spiritual life at best.  It can also cause some to wrongly proclaim they personally know God but in reality, have only been intellectually introduced to Him and never ...

God’s Grace Resolves Spiritual Quandaries

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. (1 Peter 5:10 KJV)

God’s desire is that all mankind be eternally established in Him.  He desires the best for all mankind but man must desire to have the best from God for himself.  God never forces His love upon anyone.  It is always ...

Light Always Banishes Darkness

Light Always Banishes Darkness

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? (Jeremiah 17:9 KJV)

The heart of all mankind is desperately wicked from birth.  It is a naturally dark and unreliable indicator of the current situation in his life.  His heart is easily led astray by contrary whims and waves often found at work in this world.  Reliance upon feelings generated in his heart will often lead man in the wrong direction.

The spiritually ...

Reeling in “Spiritual Tyrants”

Reeling in “Spiritual Tyrants”

I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not. Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church. (3 John 9-10 KJV)

“Spiritual Tyrants” line the pews of churches.  Persons of conflict are not new in ...

Man Must Choose to Exercise Faith in God

Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. (John 6:28-29 KJV)

Believe!  The work is already done!  Many people wrongly believe that their relationship or standing with God hinges upon something they do for themselves.

Nothing can be farther from the truth.

God sent ...

God Promises an Inheritance for Overcomers

He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. (Revelation 21:7-8 KJV)

“He that overcometh shall inherit all things…”

There is a lot of supernatural power packed tightly ...

Where is the love of God in Calvinism? Part 7

Where is the love of God in Calvinism?  Part 7

Limited Atonement: Did Christ Die for the Whole World?

As previously posted, Calvinism restricts the love of God by suggesting that God has only chosen to save a few and condemn the rest (Unconditional Election).  Accepting this point logically leads to the thought that Christ did not die for the sins of the whole world, but rather for the sins of only the elect.  Calvinists teach that their doctrine of ...

Paul Traveled with God Gracefully

Paul was communicating with God in prayer and asking for safe travels and mercy on his missionary journey.  He desired to bring God honor and glory by imparting a spiritual gift ...
