Your Not Good

Your Not Good

Romans 3:23 (KJB) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

If any man fails to believe this scripture verse verbatim, he is setting his course to receive certain destruction.  What do I mean?  Well, the Bible is clear to us that unless we can agree with God about the nature of sin, no person can expect to receive and apply a personal pardon and to reap eternal blessing from God.

In other words, all means all.  No ...

Found Blameless

Found Blameless

Daniel 6:4-5 (KJB) Then the presidents and princes sought to find occasion against Daniel concerning the kingdom; but they could find none occasion nor fault; forasmuch as he was faithful, neither was there any error or fault found in him. 5 Then said these men, We shall not find any occasion against this Daniel, except we find it against him concerning the law of his God.

These verses reveal a lot about the character of Daniel.  This revealing was useful both in ancient times ...

Deliver But Their Own Souls

Deliver But Their Own Souls

Ezekiel 14:12-14 (KJB) The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, 13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: 14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by ...

Love for Brethren

Love for Brethren

1 John 3:14 (KJB) We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

Oh, so many people have vital biblical-based teaching about love for their brethren all figured out, or so they think.  Many will claim that all a person has to do is only love others despite anything and everything at work in their life.  However, many often fail to align their actions to meet the ...

Intrinsically Dishonest

Intrinsically Dishonest

Jeremiah 17:9 (KJB) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

How many times do you hear, “trust your heart…”  Perhaps this seems like good solid advice to heed and apply in your life.  However, doing so is not biblical and is both physically and spiritually detrimental and, quite frankly, is eternally dangerous. 

The Bible tells us that our hearts cannot be trusted.  Our feelings and emotions lie and camouflage the truth of many matters. Did you ...

It Was A Trap

It Was A Trap

John 8:4-6 (KJB) They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

The “they” recorded in this verse of scripture points to religious Pharisees and scribes who were ...

Physical Death, Spiritual Death

May 31, 2020

Physical Death, Spiritual Death

James 2:26 (KJB) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Physical death separates the body from the soul.

Spiritual death separates a spiritually lost soul from fellowship with God.

This scripture verse tells us that faith alone without works is dead.  This truth, in particular, is vital for every professing Christian to ponder in his or her profession of faith and practice before God.  Genuine faith always accompanies sincere works all for bringing honor and ...

Separation And Sin

Separation And Sin

Isaiah 59:1-2 (KJB) Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Separation from God is always initiated by mankind, for God does not ever move away from any person.  Individuals who disagree with the nature and character of God choose to step aside or run from ...

Willing To Endure

Willing To Endure

1 Timothy 4:10 (KJB) For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

The life of a sincere professing child of God is certainly not ever a bed of roses.  Nor is it like taking a leisurely walk in a park.  If you had to honestly reveal or describe what it is like in following Christ, you might say that some days are like canvassing ...

Keep Thy Precepts – Diligently

Psalm 119:4 (KJB) “Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.“

Throughout the Bible, there are many places that God tells us to keep His commandments. In this chapter, there are five occurrences of “Keep Thy Precepts”.

Psalm 119:63 (KJB) I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.

Psalm 119:69 (KJB) The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my ...
