According To His Power
John 1:12 (KJB) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.
No person can become a child of God through osmosis, family ties and traditions, reciting a prayer, wishing, being baptized, going to the altar, good moral works, or any other thing besides dying to self and living unto Him through faith in the finished work of His Son ... Continue Reading →
The Purpose Revealed
New Beginning or a Hoax
In this video, we will finish our study of Colossians 1:18. What does it mean that Jesus was the firstborn from the dead?
Elijah raised the son of the Zarephath widow in 1 Kings 17:17-22. Elisha raised two from the dead. The first in 2 Kings 4:32-35 and the second in 2 Kings 13:20-21. Jesus raised three people from the dead before he was raised ... Continue Reading →

He is Greater!
1 John 4:4 (KJB) Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
I am convinced that all professing Christians would greatly benefit from the reading and applying this verse each day. We cannot possibly hear this important truth too often! The more we hear it the easier it is to recall, repeat, and apply this verse in tough times.
Reaching out ... Continue Reading →

He Still Heals!
Psalm 147:3 (KJB) He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
A person can look many places in the Old Testament to find passages of scripture detailing how God took care of His own Jewish people.
Even though you and I may not be born Jewish or share in his physical heritage, we can apply God’s care, concern, and compassion to our own lives today. Not only does He care for all people but He ... Continue Reading →

Washed with Dirty Water
Matthew 27:24-25 (KJB) When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. 25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Pilate tried to wash his own hands with dirty spiritual water. His attempt to wash away ... Continue Reading →

No Good Man
Ecclesiastes 7:20 (KJB) For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.
To call a man good is to call God a liar for only God sets the standard that which is good.
Mankind falls way short of being considered anything even remotely close to good. Mankind is naturally in opposition, or in disagreement, with the goodness of God. Man’s heart is only evil from birth as every person is born with ... Continue Reading →

Was Matthias Appointed by God?
Acts 1:23-26 (KJB) And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen, 25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. 26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot ...

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 ... Continue Reading →

A Glimpse of God
Isaiah 6:5 (KJB) Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
Just a glimpse of God gives a man a truthful portrait of his own wickedly sinful condition for God is holy, timeless, and perfect.
Any imperfection, fissure, act, or spiritual disfigurement in man ... Continue Reading →

Position and Disposition
Romans 8:1-2 (KJB) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
This verse examines both the spiritual position and walk of a godly man.
Having a position in Christ is to have a supernatural spiritual indwelling and sanctification of God. ... Continue Reading →
