Genesis 2:17 (KJB) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Many people, especially among the younger generation, do not naturally expect to face stiff penalties for their chosen words and action(s). Why, because in this wicked world consequences are not often immediate, talk is cheap, choices and activities can be deniable, and penalties are usually not expected among those who ...

God Rules All
Psalm 97:1 (KJB) The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
It is no secret that God reigns over all things, including the earth and the heavens. His position is above all things. His authority is higher than any other, including the created, creatures, and angels.
Yes, God reigns above all things, and all are subject unto Him.
The created (people) are born into this world with their own will, and, unless it is purposely bent (elected) ... Continue Reading →

Obvious Answers for Narcissists
Romans 11:33-36 (KJB) O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller? 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
Who ... Continue Reading →

Jesus Was in the Boat
Mark 4:38-41 (KJB) And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? 41 And they ... Continue Reading →

Ephesians 3:3-4 (KJB) How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
The Apostle Paul was used as an instrument of God to reveal and unravel this mystery. First, a person must understand that this was not the words of Paul written in this verse, but words were given to him by the inspiration of God to reveal vital truths. ... Continue Reading →

God Called His Name
Exodus 3:4 (KJB) And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
God called Moses amid a burning bush. God knew how to get his undivided attention.
God dropped Paul to the ground to get his attention.
God made Sarah laugh in her old age when hearing His promise given through an angel.
Mary and Joseph, Jesus’s earthly parents, ... Continue Reading →

Job Looks for God
Job 23:8-12 (KJB) Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: 9 On the left hand, where he doth work, but I cannot behold him: he hideth himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him.
Our vantage point from this earth is limited. God can see from all angles, but our present viewpoint is limited by our presence on this earth. One day perhaps we can look from heaven and get ... Continue Reading →

Whatsoever, Do It
John 2:5 (KJB) His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
The “He” spoken of in this verse is Jesus.
His mother is Mary, the earthly mother of Jesus.
Mary is giving beneficial instruction to servants. They were just to do it, whatever it was that Jesus would instruct them to do concerning having no wine. Instant obedience from these men included no hesitation, questions, or afterthought about what Jesus said for them to do.
Mary, His mother, may not have understood entirely ... Continue Reading →

Acts 8:9-11 (KJB) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
This man named Simon was thought to be a sorcerer. ... Continue Reading →

House of Rolls
Ezra 6:1 (KJB) Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.
I hope you know that the context of this verse is not all about donuts and sugary confections or about homemade buttery dinner buns.
Indeed, the rolls mentioned in this verse are pointing to an ancient room housing a collection of ancient scrolls on which were recorded God’s words and decrees. This room was the ... Continue Reading →
