God Stands Over The Affairs Of Men
Daniel 2:20-23 (KJV) Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

Proverbs 14:34 (KJV) Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
Sin can seem small but cause shame to rise in our soul like an enormous, foreboding mountain range. Often, we like to think of a little lie as a nominal thing, a white lie that does not damage. That is until we look at any lie through the lens of God. You see, to God, any lie creates a stain in our life ... Continue Reading →

Psalm 9:19-20 (KJV) Arise, O LORD; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Willing To Sacrifice
Acts 20:24 (KJV) But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Setting The Timetable
Luke 3:1-2 (KJV) Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene, Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
The first verses or preceding verses of a chapter most often ... Continue Reading →

God Meant Exactly What He Said
Exodus 20:13 (KJV) Thou shalt not kill.
This scripture contains a short but vital commandment from God. Dismissing this directive as not essential or simply choosing not to follow it will undoubtedly stir up a mountain of discord and suffering. This pain and sorrow can indeed follow a family from generation to generation.
If you managed to get a discussion group together for input concerning this commandment given by God, there would be all kinds ... Continue Reading →

A Stark Warning
Matthew 10:32-33 (KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
These verses reveal to us that no person can choose to ignore Jesus Christ as they dwell on this earth and expect God to warmly embrace them and accept them once they arrive in eternity. What ... Continue Reading →

Today is the first day of December. This means the holiday season is fast approaching. It is time set aside since the first century for remembering the virgin birth of Christ. It is a ... Continue Reading →

Simeon’s Words Amazed Them
Luke 2:33-35 (KJV) And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
Mary, the mother of Jesus, and ... Continue Reading →
