Jesus Silences the Hypocrites
John 8:7 (KJV) So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
These verses come from one of my favorite accounts God inspired for John to record in His Word. The context of this verse is that a group of people came to Jesus to report dodgy behavior concerning a promiscuous woman. Regrettably, this woman was ... Continue Reading →

A House of Prayer
Matthew 21:12-13 (KJV) And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
There is some controversy among biblical scholars as to the reason Jesus overturned ... Continue Reading →

What About The After-Life?
Hebrews 9:27 (KJV) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.
It seems nothing is more intriguing to curious earthly souls than the thought of the afterlife. Undoubtedly, Hollywood helps to stir the imagination in a big way with their many series and movies portraying what writers and producers think life after death will entail. You see everything from the walking dead to an almost fairy tale kind of ... Continue Reading →

The Devil Pressures Us Away From God’s Green Pasture
Psalm 23:2 (KJV) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
I think about the tremendous pressure that a deep diver goes through to descend into the depths, and as he rises to the surface, the pressures change again. Such incredible force met in the wrong timing can lead any diver to face the bends. This condition is a severe health complication that ... Continue Reading →

A Mark of Ownership
Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Perhaps nothing has been more speculated than about this mark. Some say it will be a physical mark like cattle branding ... Continue Reading →

Happy Thanksgiving 2021, Praise God; we have so many blessings to be thankful for every day!
Ears Ringing With Disaster
2 Kings 21:10-12 (KJV) And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying, Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such ...

Drank Truth But Did Not Devour
Hebrews 6:4-6 (KJV) For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Sadly, many ... Continue Reading →

God Wants every Soul To Hear and Receive
1 Timothy 2:4 (KJV) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
This succinct verse provides us two valuable lessons. The first is that God desires all people to hear His saving knowledge and for them to receive His truth. All means all, and knowing this refutes any messenger who claims God only wants some people to listen and accept His salvation message. ... Continue Reading →

Funds to Repair the Temple
2 Kings 12:9-10 (KJV) But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and bored a hole in the lid of it, and set it beside the altar, on the right side as one cometh into the house of the LORD: and the priests that kept the door put therein all the money that was brought into the house of the LORD. And it was so, when they saw that there was much money in the ... Continue Reading →

God’s Timing Is Always Perfect
2 Peter 3:9 (KJV) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Perhaps on days when it seems God should be rounding the corner and sliding into home plate for accompanying His spiritual family to their eternal home, we must remind ourselves that God’s timing is always right. Though it often seems ... Continue Reading →
