Whatsoever You Ask

Whatsoever You Ask

John 14:13-14 (KJV) And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

It is shocking what one can receive by asking.  Now I am not pointing to asking the government, your friend or family member, or your employer, requesting help from any person, group. Or the government for support is sure to ...

Ask For What You Want

Ask For What You Want

James 4:2 (KJV) Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

Sometimes it seems overly simple to ask God for what you want, too easy, yet many fail to bring their innermost cares and concerns to God.  Our instinct is to get what we want when we want it and leave God out of the picture.  God ...

Delight In His Word

October 23, 2021

Delight In His Word

Psalm 119:162 (KJV) I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

Imagine for a moment that you won a considerable amount of money.  Or a wealthy distant relative bequeaths you a rather large sum of money.  Or perhaps you start remodeling your old house and find a hidden stash of cash in the wall.  Likely you would consider any of these scenarios as finding great spoil.  Think of the joy you may feel ...

Experience Violence and Force

Experience Violence and Force

Matthew 11:12 (KJV) And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

It is easy to get caught up in the violence reported today in the news and think that this world is falling to utter corruption swiftly.  It is vital to place the evil at work today in the proper context.  Brutality and carnage on this earth have been at work ...

Search The Scriptures Daily

Search The Scriptures Daily

Acts 17:10-11 (KJV) And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

These verses describe an ancient time when Paul and Silas are missionaries and this New Testament Church they are visiting is ...

One Tabernacle

One Tabernacle

Exodus 36:13 (KJV) And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.

This verse is one of many in describing the linen curtains for the tabernacle.  It is essential to note the inference towards the end of this verse to it being one tabernacle.  This same phrasing is used in describing unity in marriage in Genesis 2:24 in becoming one flesh.

This unity is a plurality, ...

A Wolf Running With The Big Dogs Knows When To Bite

A Wolf Running With The Big Dogs Knows When To Bite

John 18:2 (KJV) And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

Judas ran with the big dogs.  Yet, Judas was intimately familiar with Jesus’s habits and knew that He resorted to prayer in this garden for one on one communication with God.  This ancient situation proves that a person can attend church, be close to sincerely serving hearts, say the ...

The Wicked Are Like Scavenging Rats

The Wicked Are Like Scavenging Rats

Revelation 22:14-15 (KJV) Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The thought of giant rats foraging for food, especially near me, makes me shudder.  I think that most of us can recall a movie or ...

“Male and Female created He Them…”

October 17, 2021

“Male and Female created he them…”

Genesis 5:1-2 (KJV) This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.

The title of this devotion is taken straight from The Bible.  If you did not already notice “and called their name Adam, in the day they ...

Persecution Prospered

Persecution Prospered

Acts 12:1-2 (KJV) Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.

Suppose you think that the times in which we live today are filled with politically motivated persecution and evil and are substantially different than ancient politics. In that case, you should read about extreme events that took place in the early church.  You will soon understand that ...
