The Gospel is for Everyone

The Gospel is for Everyone

Acts 10:34 (KJB) Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.

The ancient Jewish people had been raised to believe that they were naturally the accepted people of God.  While this is true for a time in the old testament, this special treatment of God’s chosen people did not last forever.  In fact, as this New Testament verse clearly states, God is not a ...

God’s Division is Saved and Lost Hearts

God’s Division is Saved and Lost Hearts

2 John 9 (KJB) Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Ultimately, God divides this world into just two groups- saved and lost hearts.  God did note two genders in creating and pronouncing male and female, and allowing just three people groups; Ham, Shep, Japeth in producing the entire lineage of ...

He Would Take Their Place If He Could

Romans 9:1-3 (KJB) I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, 2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. 3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh.

Paul’s heart was so grieved about the lost heart condition of his Jewish brethren that he would reach ...

Are You Sincerely Saved?

1 Corinthians 1:18 (KJB) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Are we saved, or are we being saved?  This difference in wording is as opposing as apples are to oranges or as night is to daytime.  The two spiritual camps rest at opposing ends of the spiritual spectrum.  A saved heart enjoys sweet eternal fellowship with God while lost hearts are far removed from Him; both now and forevermore.

A ...

Swallowing Our Pride

July 10th, 2019

Swallowing Our Pride

Galatians 6:3 (KJB) For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

I have never heard of a person’s belly becoming swollen and ill from swallowing his pride.  In fact, the proven benefits of swallowing our pride is quite the opposite.  Ridding oneself of pride has both a physical and spiritual profit.

All a man needs to do is look in God’s Word to verses containing the word pride.  That simple ...

More Conviction Less Being Offended

More Conviction Less Being Offended

2 Corinthians 7:9-10 (KJB) Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.

Sometimes it seems that conviction is a dying word and a lost spiritual action in this world.  ...

Avoid Foolish and Unlearned Questions

Avoid Foolish and Unlearned Questions

2 Timothy 2:22-23 (KJB) Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

The Word of God gives us valuable insight and direction as we walk in this world.  It also gives us places and actions to avoid.  That is what is presented in these above verses, a call ...

Finding Fault with God

Finding Fault with God

Romans 9:19-21 (KJB) Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? 20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? 21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

Some people make a ...

Burdens and Burnout

Burdens and Burnout

1 John 5:3 (KJB) For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

God says that keeping His commandments are not grievous.  Doing so is a pleasure for a child of God and never a burden.  Agreeing with God is a joy and a natural reaction of savoring and serving Him.

My friend, if you are feeling anxious and overwhelmed and at spiritual odds with the will of God, ...

Is God About to Chop you with The Ax?

July 5th, 2019

Is God About to Chop you with The Ax?

Matthew 3:10 (KJB) And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

This verse was given to the Jewish people for reminding them of the certainty of the judgment of God against anyone who did not produce fruit.  However, this ax-wielding message still rings true for every person alive on ...
