A Disciplined Army
Joel 2:8 (KJB) Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
The ancient context of this verse is speaking of a time when enemies were invading the ancient land of Israel. Not only that, but this message parallels one of a coming invasion with the fifth trumpet judgment, as was recorded for our consideration in the book of Revelation.
We can compare this marching band of ... Continue Reading →

Political Platforms 3 – National
Read 2Pet. 3:10-11
I really wanted to end the political side of this with the last lesson, but I just cannot. New Agers are SO politically powerful and involved that I believe we fail to see how much they have influenced our government, how much a part of it they are, including the policies and laws that are made. They want to shape the future. I also want you to ... Continue Reading →

The Absence of Light Creates Darkness
Isaiah 45:7 (KJB) I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
God takes credit for both light and darkness. Does this true statement confuse your thinking? The presence of evil is a natural void of the presence of God. You cannot have light without the presence of darkness or peace without hate working in this world.
I hope you understand that there is nothing cloudy about this statement ... Continue Reading →

David Laments About His Sin

David is led to share in this Psalm about a personal time of great remorse. His sadness and grief about his sin and is sad indeed.
I am sure you have had a time or two when you cry ... Continue Reading →

True Wisdom Does Not Require A Degree
James 3:15-17 (KJB) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
In the verses just before these above, James was referring to the characteristics of earthly wisdom. He continues by describing the character of ... Continue Reading →

I Will Do It
John 14:13 (KJB) And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Whatsoever you ask, I will do. What a promise from God! Knowing this and understanding how it works in God’s terms should make prayer a priority for every child of God. Prayer conveys the power of God. It is the vehicle of God’s power source from God to humanity.
It is essential to understand that no ... Continue Reading →

His Ways are Beyond Imagination
Romans 11:33 (KJB) O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
No man can fathom the greatness and glory of God. God’s power and presence will never be altered by a person, time, or circumstance. His potential is far-reaching and not limited by anything at work in this world.
God has been present since the beginning and has no end or limit to ... Continue Reading →

God is Great
Psalm 8:9 (KJB) O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
This scripture verse, among many others in the entire canon of scripture, tells us about the unique and excellent nature of God. In reading the whole eighth Psalm, a person can discover the perfect and unlimited potential of the nature of God.
Society tells us who we are, what to think, builds our self-esteem, but fails miserably in telling us about God. Humanity naturally wants to be ... Continue Reading →

All About God
Proverbs 16:4 (KJB) The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
God has a purpose and a reason for everything. Life is never about a person’s rights, desires, or reasoning as such popular mantra calls out for us to believe in today. God often lies at the opposite end of the spectrum of what is socially acceptable today. Everything on this earth and in Heaven is about Him and does not ever have ... Continue Reading →
