His Workmanship

October 29th, 2019

Ephesians 2:10 (KJB) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

God created something from nothing by scooping up a pile of dirt with His hands and forming it into the first man, who was named Adam.

A potter needs clay.

A carpenter needs wood.

A chef needs food.

God made you into something from nothing.

Yes, you are His workmanship, I am His workmanship. The drunk ...

The Emphasis is on God

October 28th, 2019

Genesis 1:1 (KJB) In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

It is essential to note in the first verse of scripture; the emphasis is not on what God would create.  The focus is on His eternal presence.  God was present at the beginning of time, and forever will be present.  This revelation is hard, but not impossible for mankind to comprehend from his limited view on this earth.  God is not limited by ...

Fervent Prayer and Praise

October 27th, 2019

Psalm 55:17 (KJB) Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

This Psalm is one David penned at the inspiration of God.

Fruit Production Accompanies Sincere Repentance

October 26th, 2019

Matthew 3:8 (KJB) Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance.

Spiritual fruit is anticipated in the life of every sincere professing child of God.  This production and harvest are not up for consideration or allowable for professing Christians to choose whether they desire to participate for it is expected of them.

A changed life is expected.

Lack of crops and a harvest always point to a need for personal repentance concerning sin and perhaps spiritual regeneration, or ...

The Men of The City

October 25th, 2019

Genesis 19:4-5 (KJB) But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

Now is the time for men of God to learn and digest valuable lessons ...

Ephesians 5:10-11 (KJB) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

October 23, 2019

This verse above concerns proving that which is acceptable unto God.  This proving is presented for our learning in this verse. 

First, note that this scripture does not direct us to decide for ourselves what we think is best.  Or allow society at large to deem what is relevant and tolerable.  This verse takes into consideration what is acceptable unto ...

October 22nd, 2019

Hebrews 9:27-28 (KJB) And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Our life in this world moves quickly.  It has been compared to wispy things including the wind, grass, smoke, or vapor.  It is here now, and in the next moment ...

Innocence Stirred Up

Job 17:8-9 (KJB) Upright men shall be astonied at this, and the innocent shall stir up himself against the hypocrite. 9 The righteous also shall hold on his way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.

October 21, 2019
Any sincere child of God would immediately stand and support Job accused and trampled on by his supposed “friends.”  This verse says that they would be astonished at this treatment of Job.
This scripture verse points to the ...

The Presence of God Makes Your Heart Sing

October 20th, 2019

Exodus 15:1 (KJB) Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

I am singing in victory. 

I am singing in praise.

I am singing in sweet fellowship with God.

I am singing in the middle of the trails of life.

Singing praises to God is not an ...

A Man is Not Made to Carry the Weight and Woe of Sin

October 19, 2019

A Man is Not Made to Carry the Weight and Woe of Sin

1 John 1:9 (KJB) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The grace of God gives a man the strength to bear his burdens.  Without that, a man naturally buckles under the weighty burden of sin.  Why, because mankind was never meant to carry the burden ...
