The Wicked Will Be Snuffed Out

Job 21:17 (KJB) How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.

Yes, though it may seem as if a person can get away with evil in this world, that is not so. In fact, that statement is far from the truth of God for He deals with the wicked in his way and timing.  Though perhaps an evil ...

Demonstrating Wisdom

Demonstrating Wisdom

James 3:13 (KJB) Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

Who is a wise man?

Where are all the wise men in this world?

These are relevant questions that need to be asked today in this wicked world.  Doesn’t it seem like the evil at work has risen to new heights and there is no longer much wisdom of God at work ...

Spiritual Goodness Over Sacrifice

Hosea 6:5-6 (KJB) Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth. 6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

The Old Testament was filled with the laws, standards, and the necessity of coming before God and offering a shed blood sacrifice for the presence of sin.  Such ...

Simon Bewitched

Acts 8:9-11 (KJB) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

I want to call to your attention to a word divinely recorded in the above ...

The Pharisees Feathers were Ruffled

Matthew 9:10-13 (KJB) And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners? 12 But when Jesus heawererd that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. 13 ...

Mercy Not Sacrifice

August 13th, 2019

Mercy Not Sacrifice

Matthew 12:7 (KJB) But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

Jesus is speaking about the law.  The purpose of God’s Law is not to be a burden but a blessing.  The Law is not about following rules.  It is about God extending unlimited mercy and grace in fulfilling His Law in regenerated hearts.   God’s Law is not about our need to sacrifice ...

He Said One Word: “GO”

Matthew 8:32 (KJB) And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

Jesus Christ said “GO” and the demon spirits immediately left for they recognized Him and feared for their immediate future.  There was no time for hanging around or choosing to ignore His ...

Come boldly

August 11th, 2019

Come boldly

Hebrews 4:16 (KJB) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

A sincere child of God either chooses to come boldly to Him or he elects to fall away from Jesus Christ.  You see, a child of God does not come to God just once, but over and over again.  Once his eternal position only found inside a personal relationship with God ...

The Key to Answered Prayer

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

Praying to God is not like rubbing a bottle and summoning a genie who desires to give you your every wish.

In fact, do you know that God does not answer every prayer?  That is probably news to ...

Sin Comes Under the Cover of Darkness

Sin Comes Under the Cover of Darkness

Proverbs 4:18-19 (KJB) But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

Sin is associated with darkness while God is The Light of the world.

There is no way that a person can dress up evil into anything other than what it is- darkness.  While it is ...
