Displaying an Arguing and Backbiting Attitude

Biblical Wisdom Wednesday for Common Questions of Life

Ephesians 4:31-32 (KJB) Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Are you a godly person?

God desires that a professing man or woman of God mirror His attributes as they speak and react to others in this ...

A Cog in the Machine

1 Peter 5:8 (KJB) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

The devil’s agenda is meant to be a cog in the machine.  In fact, right now the devil has his eye on your life and is looking for a way to “trip you up” and cause you to fall flat on your face.  He knows when he has you down and ...

A Rod and Reproof Are Necessary

A Rod and Reproof Are Necessary

Proverbs 29:15 (KJB) The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

I am sure this statement is nothing new, especially to those who are struggling parents of teenagers:

Children always pride themselves on whittling away at the resolve of their parents.

Yes, a child will whittle, and whittle, and whittle away at their parent(s) resolve with a dogged determination until a, or both parents are positioned to ...

Hijacking the Truth of God

Hijacking the Truth of God

Matthew 7:15 (KJB) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

For some, attempting to fleece the sheep is a full-time spiritual job.

Now I hope you understand that I am not referring to the actual shearing the sheep, but the attempt to tear down God’s own people, chew them up, and spit them out by “dark spiritual animals” filled with grievous errors, rather than filled with ...

Questions Concerning Biblical Matters

Acts 15:5-6 (KJB)   But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.  6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.

Some people may think that the early church was without many conflicts, errors, problems, or controversies as found in many churches today.  However, nothing is further from the ...

Belief in God and A Relationship with God Are Two Distinct Things

February 24th, 2018

Belief in God and A Relationship with God Are Two Distinct Things

1 John 2:23 (KJB) Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

There is a difference in one’s belief in God and his having a personal relationship with God.

A person can easily express faith in the fact of the existence of God without personally believing in God inside his or her heart.  Words are cheap and ...

God Does the “Spiritual Laundry”

February 23rd, 2018

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 ...

Ezra 10:1 (KJB) Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore.

These people were gathered together in humble prayer to God.  The subject of their prayer was the many strange marriages that had taken place among the Israelites.  ...

Common Sense and God Sense

Biblical Wisdom Wednesday for Common Questions of Life

Proverbs 3:21-24 (KJB)   My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:  22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. 

Is there a difference between “Common sense” and “God sense”?

The book of Proverbs has a great deal of wisdom and knowledge that every person should understand and desire to apply to his or her life.  It was divinely ...

Every Man’s Work Will Be Revealed

1 Corinthians 3:13 (KJB) Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.

Many are looking for an easy pathway through life, both professing Christians and lost men alike.  Doing only as little as possible and expecting to “just get by” in this world and have a future eternal home.  ...
