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 ...

Whatsoever, Do It

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 ...

Simon Bewitched

Simon Bewitched

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.  ...

House of Rolls

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 ...

Contrite Before God

February 19, 2020

Contrite Before God

Ezra 9:5-7 (KJB) And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God, 6 And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. 7 Since the days of our fathers ...

Eternal Fondness

Eternal Fondness

Colossians 3:2 (KJB) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

It is so easy to place rose-colored glasses on your face and see the world as you want it to be, or as you believe it to be, rather than observing this world filtered with the truth of God. A correct viewpoint is only possible through applying the lens of God.

Ouch, that might sting a little, but it is true. God’s viewpoint does make us set up ...

Choose Life

Choose Life

Deuteronomy 30:19 (KJB) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

Moses urged these ancient people to understand that only God has authority over both life and death.  This same message must be given to hearts today for sadly, the significance of both God and the preciousness of life has waned among many cold and lukewarm souls.

It is sad ...

Not Being Saved

Not Being Saved

1 Corinthians 1:18 (KJB) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Verbs are essential players in the reading of correct context in any sentence.  It is also true that grammar and punctuation from ancient times can be much different from that accepted as right today.  The historical background of verses, together with proper application, punctuation, and grammar are crucial to understanding what God has revealed in ...

Incomplete Without The Other

February 15, 2020

Incomplete Without The Other

1 Corinthians 11:11 (KJB) Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord.

Yesterday, February 14th, another Valentine’s Day has come and gone.  It is important to note that this much celebrated day in this world comes with the giving of roses and candy every year.  This day is meant to celebrate love and human relationships between a man and a woman at the leading of the Catholic Church centuries ago.

However, now Valentine’s Day is used to ...

Offspring of God

February 14, 2020

Offspring of God

Acts 17:29 (KJB) Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

Each person reaches a glass ceiling in his or her natural finite thinking at work in this world.  No person cannot entirely wrap his or her head around the infinite nature and creation of God for His ways are “out of this world” and beyond our limited understanding ...
