The Trio of Body, Soul, and Spirit

April 7th, 2019

The Trio of Body, Soul, and Spirit

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJB) And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This verse recorded by Paul is spiritually thick and inviting.  Digesting what it reveals, in ancient times and for us today compares to the satisfaction of biting into a thick juicy burger for a beef lover.  It is ...

David was to Attack the Philistines from Behind

1 Chronicles 14:13-16 (KJB) And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the valley. 14 Therefore David inquired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees. 15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out ...

Atoned for All Sin

Atoned for All Sin

Isaiah 53:6 (KJB) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

This Old Testament prophecy examined the sin problem of every heart and the coming supernatural prescription, through Jesus Christ, to atone for sin.  These first few verses of chapter fifty-three in the book of Isaiah, including verse six above, are essential verses to understand about ...

The Spirit Lives in You

April 4th, 2019

The Spirit Lives in You

Romans 8:11 (KJB) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

That same Spirit of God lives in you as a genuine professing child of God.  Maybe you never thought about it in that light before.  It is true, the same Spirit that raised Christ from ...

An Infamous Convict

April 3rd, 2019

An Infamous Convict

Matthew 27:16 (KJB) And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

Just what exactly makes a prisoner notable?

Luke 23:18-19 Luke minced no words in calling Barabbas a murder!

John 18:40 John called Barabbas a robber.

Mark 15:7 Mark accused Barabbas of plotting against Rome.

It seems this man was mentioned in all the gospels and each author penned different crimes he committed.  Barabbas was not a low-level criminal but one who seemed to have an ongoing history of ...

The Source and Certainty of Scripture

April 2nd, 2019

The Source and Certainty of Scripture

2 Peter 1:19-21 (KJB) We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but ...

Preparing and Prophesying About Calvary

April 01, 2019

Preparing and Prophesying About Calvary

Matthew 16:21 (KJB) From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

Though Jesus Christ spoke in a clear language about the approaching of His death, His message was not understood or received by the crowds or His closest men, then or now.  Today ...

The Law was Made for Sinners

March 31st, 2019

The Law was Made for Sinners

1 Timothy 1:9-10 (KJB)   Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,  10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.

The law ...

The Road to Hell is Always Entertaining but Goes Nowhere

March 30th, 2019

The Road to Hell is Always Entertaining but Goes Nowhere

Romans 8:6 (KJB) For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

It has been said that Hunter S. Thompson declared: “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! ...

No Basis for Self-Righteousness or Individual Merit

March 29th, 2019

No Basis for Self-Righteousness or Individual Merit

Romans 3:27-28 (KJB) Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

There is no room for any level of spiritual smugness in our personal relationship with God.  Nor is there any room for building prideful fences and barriers in relating with others.  Simply put, pride ...
