Daubed It with Untempered Mortar
Ezekiel 13:10-12 (KJB) Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter: 11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it. 12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall ...

The Elephant in the Room
Romans 8:1 (KJB) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
So many people cannot seem to move beyond the condemnation of sin at work in this world. It is like the elephant in the room so to speak. The devil especially likes to linger near newly saved hearts for creating a spiritual rouse for serving repeated reminders about forgiven ... Continue Reading →

Some Preach Empty Words
1 Timothy 1:5-7 (KJB) Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; 7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
Paul was speaking about strict-minded Jews who were preaching about the strict keeping of the law of God and skipping over ... Continue Reading →

Paul Returns to The Galatian Church

The Law Condemns
Romans 3:20 (KJB) Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Paul is pointing out to his Jewish audience that the Law of God is not for bringing justice to those who choose to break it. The Law of God has always been for the express purpose of exposing the presence of sin. That’s right, God’s law directly points to ... Continue Reading →

Walking Wisely or Worldly
Proverbs 13:20 (KJB) He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
The direction and desires of our life will either drive us to place faith in God or to destroy us forever. You see, our walk can only be in one of two directions, walking wisely with God or walking worldly with the god of this world.
These two avenues are in opposing directions. One trail leads to ... Continue Reading →
