The Devil Does His Best Work When You Nap
Matthew 13:25 (KJV) But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Jesus often used illustrations, or parables, to teach humanity about God. Here the danger of sin and careless living was filleted for them to gain a better understanding of the importance of savoring and serving God. This parable tells about men who slept through a time when his service was needed ... Continue Reading →

Consider The Latter End
Deuteronomy 32:27-30 (KJV) Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, ... Continue Reading →

A Fearful Focus
Exodus 20:18-21 (KJV) And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his ...

Luke 2:10-11 (KJV) And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Mary was about to give birth to her son, baby Jesus Christ. In modern terms, giving birth is both natural and routine. It brings great joy to a couple, only possible when ... Continue Reading →

Joseph, Fear Not
Matthew 1:18-20 (KJV) Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in ... Continue Reading →

Always Want More
Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 (KJV) He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity. When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
Silver never satisfies. Neither does the abundance of goods. King Solomon led by God, presents the truth about humanity’s natural appetite for more and more in these ... Continue Reading →

A Faithful Season
Isaiah 41:10 (KJV) Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Today is the first day of December. This means the holiday season is fast approaching. It is time set aside since the first century for remembering the virgin birth of Christ. It is a time of faith ... Continue Reading →

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 →
