Test Yourself Against Truth

Test Yourself Against Truth

2 Corinthians 13:5 (KJB)   Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

This verse does not say to be sure to fully examine the lives of others.

“Spiritual investigating” among your friends, neighbors, and even acquaintances, strangers, and especially enemies seem to be a popular past time for many today, but doing so is not of ...

God’s Perfect and Permissive Will

Genesis 1:28 (KJB)   And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

God desires to bless and spiritually blossom each person through procreation.  Having offspring serves to multiply man’s presence in this world through natural reproduction.  According to ...

A Man is Naturally Identified as A Sinner from his Birth

Job 14:1 (KJB)   Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

All mankind is naturally born a sinner.

Sinning comes naturally for every man.

Being moral, godly, and righteous is not included in the innate character of any man, but being immoral, evil, and wicked is certainly prominent and prolific in his natural life.

A man is not born an alcoholic.

A man is not born ...

No Excuse for Unbelief

Romans 1:19-20 (KJB)   Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.

God planted many reflections of who He is into creation.  If a man only chooses to look on ...

God Directs Steps and Stopovers

Genesis 35:1 (KJB)   And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

God did not give Jacob a choice in this matter of flagrant idolatry.  He commanded Jacob to go to Bethel.  It was not to be a stopover, but to be a dwelling place for him.  Jacob was not ...

Born Sinful

Born Sinful

Psalm 51:5 (KJB)   Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

All mankind is born with an innate sinful nature at work in his hardened heart and his flesh.

There are two divisions or “spiritual flavors” of sin.  Sins of commission and omission.

The flesh carries a strong pull or desire for craving an almost endless variety, or flavor of sin.  To desire a sin is a strong hunger, but unless a person acts ...

Love or Hate

August 7th, 2017

Love or Hate

John 15:23 (KJB)   He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

Anyone who hates Jesus Christ hates God.  For they are one in the same Spirit, not divisible or separable.

The Bible tells us that many foolish people in this world hate even the name Jesus Christ.  Just the mention of His name draws ire and anger welling up in the heart of any person with heart hardened towards things of God.

The mention of God, Jesus Christ, or ...

Ten Thousand Times Ten Thousand

Revelation 5:11-12 (KJB)   And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;  12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

I cannot wrap my finite mind around exactly ...
