I Can Do, Not?
Philippians 4:13 (KJB) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
So many people use this verse out of context to imply that they can accomplish anything.
A person can indeed achieve anything when God is involved, often people leave the working and will of God out of the equation, thereby attempting to crawl out to the end of the branch all on their merit.
Then, if the branch weakens or breaks, this person cries out ... Continue Reading →

The Source of Satan
In the Doctrine of Satan Part 1, we looked at the fact that Satan is a real person. Even though the world would like to deny that Satan exists, and many churches like to deny him according to our Final Authority, the word of God, Satan is real. Hollywood depicts our adversary as a mythical two horned, fork-tailed image in red flannel underwear, pitching coal into the furnace of hell. Satan is down-played by the ... Continue Reading →

Many Err Today
Matthew 22:29 (KJB) Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
This scripture verse reveals the answer Jesus Christ gives to a group of Sadducees who did not believe in the resurrection. These Jewish men were questioning the validity of the resurrection, along with the potential of angels and miracles. Though we can review their questions and concerns starting in verse twenty-three, the most critical focus must ... Continue Reading →

It Is Natural
Romans 8:4-5 (KJB) That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Did you know that each person is born with a natural propensity to walk at a distance from God? It is true; each person is born ... Continue Reading →
We do not see much regarding Satan taught today so I think it is important that we lay down the truth of what scripture has to say about Satan. The title satan means adversary. Websters 1828 says this about Satan:
SA’TAN, n. Heb. an adversary. The grand adversary of man; the devil or prince of darkness; the chief of the fallen angels.Websters 1828 Dictionary

Practical Application For Us
Galatians 5:24 (KJB) And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
The book of Galatians, authored by Paul, gives us many applications concerning the difference between works and in attempting to follow the Law of God. One method relies upon selfish ambitions while the other rests on the finished work of God on Calvary and God’s will.
Crucifying the flesh to do God’s will is only possible through permitting Him to ... Continue Reading →
