Man Makes His Own Choice
Job 8:20 (KJB) Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers.
Mankind’s choices will always reflect his own eternal destiny. Man is either living with God or living at large in opposition to him.
Bildad comes to this very conclusion when contemplating further about the life of Job, noting that God will not judge a perfect man (like Job), or offer assistance to anyone who chooses to live ... Continue Reading →
Calvary – His Precious Shed Blood
Leviticus 17:11 (KJB) For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
There is no possibility of a man being physically alive without having the presence of life-giving blood flowing through his veins. Blood flow is vital, delivering oxygen and life-sustaining nutrients. It gives humanity and ... Continue Reading →

A Worldly Wimp is an Eternal Loser
Luke 11:21-23 (KJB) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
Even though it often seems the god of this world is ... Continue Reading →

Avoid Dark Pitfalls
Luke 21:34-36 (KJB) And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, ...

Sin Creates a Slippery Slope
Psalm 26:1 (KJB) A Psalm of David. Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.
David was so sure of his spiritual standing with God he sought out for God to judge his life. David knew that he had remained on the narrow path of God choosing not to slid down the “slippery slope” of sin and shame because he ... Continue Reading →

Seeking solitude with God
Luke 5:16 (KJB) And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
There were times when Jesus Christ sought out a crowd to teach and preach.
Other times Jesus Christ chose to dwell in solitude with God.
Having a heart to heart talk with God was always done on His knees in reverent prayer. While Jesus Christ had occasions of public prayer, He often could be found to draw away from the hustle and bustle of the crowd ... Continue Reading →

James 1:3-4 (KJB) Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Patience is not one of my strong suits. In fact, I can be downright impatient and even exasperated at times.
What about you?
It is a constant battle to remind myself that God desires to try my faith as well as strengthen my patience. If I let myself become frustrated ... Continue Reading →

“Step out” of Your Comfort Zone
Hebrews 13:2 (KJB) Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Being hospitable does not come naturally to all mankind. Some are not comfortable welcoming total strangers, thereby choosing rather to be reserved in times of perhaps divinely encountered fellowship. To some, shyness is a part of their natural born personality, and opportunities for being friendly and speaking or serving strangers is often avoided.
The Bible encourages man to “step ... Continue Reading →

Alive in Christ
John 6:63 (KJB) It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
It is the Spirit of God that gives life. It is the Spirit which breathes new life into darkened dead hearts.
Man is born with a dead and unprofitable heart. A natural heart is not alive until God gives it the spiritual “breath of life.” (Ezekiel 36:26, John 3:5)
Only God can ... Continue Reading →
Calvary –A Counterfeit Cross
John 14:6 (KJB) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
God’s Word emphatically declares the only way to an eternal relationship with God is through Jesus Christ.
Yes, sadly, even the precious shed blood sacrifice of Calvary has a spiritual counterfeit at work in this world. It is a darkly inspired effort cleverly designed by satan to dupe gullible ... Continue Reading →
