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 →

Outwardly We Face Death Daily But…
2 Corinthians 4:16 (KJV) For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
In this verse inspired by God, the Apostle Paul pens about the outward man and the inward man when speaking to the Corinthian church. This lesson is as relevant today as it was in ancient times. It is a lesson that each of us must pay careful attention to ... Continue Reading →

He Crossed The Finish Line
Hebrews 12:2 (KJV) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Jesus Christ has already won the race! What, you can relax and let your guard down? Sort of, yes, it is true that God already won the final victory, for He is both the ... Continue Reading →

Matthew 7:6 (KJV) Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
Just recently, we went through some “not” verses. Guess what? I located another one I want to discuss. This verse seems to advise about witnessing about Christ to others, even pointing out that there are times and places to tell others about Christ, and in some ... Continue Reading →

He Is Building His Church
Matthew 16:18 (KJV) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Many people and churches use the wrong context and insight of this verse about the first-century church. The rock mentioned here does not point to Peter, but to Jesus Christ, the church’s sole strong foundation. God’s church is not resting on Peter, a ... Continue Reading →

The Devil Walks Down Main Street
1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
Sadly, the times in which we live are so evil that the devil casually walks down the main street of our corrupt society. There is no need for him to conceal his evil plans designed for luring humanity into sin on the back alleys of life. Why? For many souls, ... Continue Reading →

Blood Toucheth Blood
Hosea 4:1-2 (KJV) Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
These scripture verses were inspired by God and penned by chosen men in ancient times, pointing to the corruption and ... Continue Reading →

Dead To Self
Colossians 3:3 (KJV) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
The writer of this scripture, the Apostle Paul, knows that any person who is hid with Christ is dead to self and alive in Christ! God gives us this same vital message in many verses, including some of my favorites, such as Galatians 2:20. Yes, God calls us to die to ourselves and to live unto Him.
But, what does this directive ... Continue Reading →

God Recognizes Hypocrisy
Luke 16:14-15 (KJV) And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him. And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
Oh, the Pharisees, outwardly righteous and pious, but with a heart that lies far from sweet fellowship with God. These devout men strut around and put ... Continue Reading →

Revelation 1:18 (KJV) I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
This verse is rich in theology. It is the very words spoken by Jesus Christ and printed as red in some bibles. These words are essential for us to read and to comprehend concerning Jesus Christ.
First, they point to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Reminding us that He, ... Continue Reading →

Be Fruitful And Multiply
Genesis 1:27-28 (KJV) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
These two verses from Genesis ... Continue Reading →
