In That Day
Revelation 21:4 (KJB) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
This wonderful promise about our future in sweet fellowship with God is one that many hearts focus on when facing heartbreaking trials and tribulations in this world. It tells us that God will wipe the tears from off our face Himself. Not only that but ... Continue Reading →

Specific National Affairs
Read 1Ki. 18:27 & Jn. 12:4-6
I want to further our look at the New Age agenda for National Affairs in the U.S. Think about the fact that I’m taking all of this from Mark Satin’s book, New Age Politics.., 1978. It will sound like today’s newspaper! I chose our texts above for good reason, I’m sure, as you know me, what that reason is! Let’s look at some of the 20 ... Continue Reading →

Luke 22:41-42 (KJB) And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
Jesus Christ sought out the will of His Father in heartfelt, humble prayer on His knees. He pursued communication with His Father away from His followers and disciples so that He could be in prayerful one on one communion with Him.
Jesus Christ was open, truthful, ... Continue Reading →

Wisdom Brings Fairness and Perfect Judgment
Proverbs 1:3 (KJB) To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity.
“Don’t judge me…” How many times have you heard this mantra? Likely often, especially if you have attempted to speak to another about the loving and judging nature of God. You see, a person cannot personally know God unless he is familiar with His entire character, which goes way beyond comprehending His grace-filled love for self and others. It is moving ...

God Offers Simple Soundness
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJB) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
It is not big news that some in this world attempt to make a living by trying to alter the state of the mind and body.
“What, you might say- What do you mean?”
Mind control is big business, but is nothing more than an attempt to maneuver another person into doing, saying, or ... Continue Reading →
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. John 1:29 (KJB)
John the Baptist had a spiritual understanding that exceeded most of his contemporaries. We see by John’s reference to Jesus Christ as “the Lamb” that came to make the ultimate sacrifice for sin how profound his spiritual truth was. Others referred to Jesus as “Lord” or ... Continue Reading →

God’s Law Brings Liberty
James 2:12 (KJB) So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
The decrees of God and spiritual liberty, pitted against the laws of this world written by mankind, work in opposing directions.
You see, God’s decrees are to direct us and guide us as we sojourn in this world. They give us the freedom to choose our response. However, the laws of this world tell us how to behave and act according to ... Continue Reading →
2 Thessalonians 2:11 (KJB) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
A sin-filled heart opposes God, and for any person who chooses to continually reject His truth, God sends strong delusions to cloud and complicate his or her mind in making it impossible for a lost and disobedient person to comprehend Truth.
“This” mentioned in the above verse alludes to the purpose or reason for God choosing to reject some people. Indeed, any ... Continue Reading →

A Sharp Crusader
Psalm 149:6 (KJB) Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand.
God does not expect His spiritual family to sit on the sideline of life. Nor does God desire for them to sit on the fences of life. Continual praises, scripture, and marching ahead are to be a child of God’s spiritual crusade as they walk circumspectly, bringing glory to God in this world.
God desires for each of us to sing a litany ... Continue Reading →

Prepared for Battle
Ephesians 6:11 (KJB) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Battles are inevitable. Spiritual skirmishes are at work all about us. A child of God is given everything that he or she needs to stand tall and secure against God’s nemesis, satan in this world. God never promised His spiritual family was protected from facing battles, but that they could stand victorious in the heat of any fight.
God gives ... Continue Reading →
