The New Man

April 30, 2020

The New Man

Colossians 3:10-11 (KJB) And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

The new man is a spiritual state of heart and only comes from personally knowing  God.  A new state of heart is not something that a person can just put on like a new ...

My Ways, Your Ways, God’s Way

April 29, 2020

My Ways, Your Ways, God’s Way

Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJB) For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

God has a specific purpose for each life. 

Sadly, often, a person desires to think of himself, have his way, and to disregard any input and direction of God.  Rather than living a Galatians 2:20 life, ...

Like The Point of A Diamond

Like The Point of A Diamond

Jeremiah 17:1 (KJB) The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars.

The Sin of Judah is described for us in this verse:

written with a pen of iron and with the point of a diamond

This candid illustration points to the truth that sin is hard and pointed and engraved upon the heart.  Yes, ...

The United Nations #3

Preserved Words Bible Studies, a Part of First Love Ministries Guest Post Series

The U.N. #3 – Read Revelation 18

   Well, there’s more! I want you to really get this in your mind and never forget how REAL and TRUE your Bible is, and remember this… the mystery of iniquity was working even in Paul’s day (2Thess 2:7)! My, my what a Bible! Do we really appreciate it? Remember, too; the world is being prepared for… set up to accept… the beast/Antichrist. It will not be an overnight ...

The Quest for Wisdom

April 27, 2020

The Quest for Wisdom

Colossians 2:8 (KJB) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

Many people are busy searching for real wisdom.  The problem is they are seeking to find it in things of this world rather than understanding that actual lasting knowledge only comes from God.  Instead of seeking God, many people pursue questions and influences based in this world. 

Such a quest for wisdom ...

So Much Better

April 26, 2020

So Much Better

Hebrews 1:4-6 (KJB) Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And ,, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels ...

God’s Plan Has Not Changed

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 set a plan in motion concerning humanity at the beginning of time.  His perfect will is for each person to become like Christ. Indeed, you understand that this is an impossible feat outside of personally knowing and serving God, for it is nothing that a person can “put on” him ...

Why Water Baptism is not Required for Salvation

Guest Post by Word Ministries

Baptism is for the Christian today but it is not required for salvation. Several groups say that water baptism is required for salvation. They base this off of a few verses and a wrong interpretation of those verses. Most live on Acts 2:38.

We will look at this verse first. First, this verse does not ask the question “what must we do to be saved?”, but asks “what must we do?”

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, ...

God Knows You Inside and Out

God Knows You Inside and Out

Psalm 139:2-3 (KJB) Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off. 3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

Perhaps this is a scary thought for you to consider- God knows all your ways.  He is not just acquainted with you when you are pleasing to Him or when you pursue Him.  God knows your every thought, move, and action, whether it stands in agreement with ...

God Rejects Evil

God Rejects Evil

2 Kings 17:20-21 (KJB) And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight. 21 For he rent Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king: and Jeroboam drave Israel from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin.

Sin and rejection of God go hand in hand while alignment with God always brings ...
