Colossians 2:3 (KJB) In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Who is the “Whom” referred to in this verse? Indeed, you know that in conjunction with the context of the surrounding verses, this “whom” points to the God-head and Jesus Christ, in particular, who is the storehouse of wisdom and knowledge.
God’s brand of understanding is not the same as information, instruction, and data available to study in this world. Any person can choose to go to a higher ... Continue Reading →
Preserved Words Bible Studies, a Part of First Love Ministries Guest Post Series
Specific Global/Planetary Affairs
Read Rev. 13:1-8
I sure hope you are getting something out of this series that draws you closer to Christ Jesus AND standing up for Truth. Read Jer. 9:3, Is. 59:14, Jude 3, & 2Tim. 3:13-14. SOMEONE has to be valiant for the truth… no matter what. Let it be us! The Bible says there will rise a global leader, who will be the devil in the flesh. We must see as much ... Continue Reading →

Romans 8:29 (KJB) For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
God knew all about you since the beginning of time. The time of your birth and your position in this world does not come as a surprise to God. God knew you before you were born, and He has a particular will for your life even before your birth.
You see, nothing is by accident, chance, or ... Continue Reading →

Shadow of Death
Psalm 23:4 (KJB) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
The shadow of death, what is that? It sounds gruesome and forboding. What would you think if I told you we are all walking in the shadow of death as we sojourn in this wicked world. That is right, both saved and lost souls live in the shadow ... Continue Reading →

Overthrown By Strangers
Isaiah 1:7 (KJB) Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
The Prophet Isaiah did not mince words in explaining the condition found at work within the land of Judah. Not only was their nation in deplorable condition, but this current state was the result of the chastening of the Lord.
You see, God cannot and will not allow continual disregard for Him and His ... Continue Reading →

Innate Knowledge Given
John 1:9 (KJB) That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
This verse in the first chapter of the book of John can easily confuse growing Christians. That is until one chooses to compare scripture with scripture to reveal God’s intent, context, and meaning. A wrong understanding is that each person born into this world is automatically handed the light (salvation) of God upon birth.
However, this verse details the fact that God innately makes His presence known and available ... Continue Reading →
The Millennial Gate
Ezekiel 44:1-3 (KJB) Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. 2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. 3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall ...

Proverbs 8:13 (KJB) The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Indeed, this particular verse is not popular scripture in the times in which we live. Why, because it ties together fear of the Lord and directs us to hate evil. You see, the world loves to cozy up to corruption and to disregard God. The word disregard is not even strong enough for describing how any person ... Continue Reading →

The Underpinning of Idolatry
Colossians 3:5-6 (KJB) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.
These verses tell us about the roots of idolatry at work in this world. These world based things are often worshipped over and above cherishing God. Rather than allowing God’s peace rule and rein in their hearts, many people choose to serve and savor the stuff ... Continue Reading →

In That Day
Revelation 21:4 (KJB) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
This wonderful promise about our future in sweet fellowship with God is one that many hearts focus on when facing heartbreaking trials and tribulations in this world. It tells us that God will wipe the tears from off our face Himself. Not only that but ... Continue Reading →
