Shadow of Death

March 29, 2020

Shadow of Death

Psalm 23:4 (KJB) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

The shadow of death, what is that?  It sounds gruesome and forboding.  What would you think if I told you we are all walking in the shadow of death as we sojourn in this wicked world.  That is right, both saved and lost souls live in the shadow ...

Overthrown By Strangers

Overthrown By Strangers

Isaiah 1:7 (KJB) Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

The Prophet Isaiah did not mince words in explaining the condition found at work within the land of Judah.  Not only was their nation in deplorable condition, but this current state was the result of the chastening of the Lord.

You see, God cannot and will not allow continual disregard for Him and His ...

Innate Knowledge Given

Innate Knowledge Given

John 1:9 (KJB) That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

This verse in the first chapter of the book of John can easily confuse growing Christians.  That is until one chooses to compare scripture with scripture to reveal God’s intent, context, and meaning.  A wrong understanding is that each person born into this world is automatically handed the light (salvation) of God upon birth. 

However, this verse details the fact that God innately makes His presence known and available ...

The Millennial Gate

The Millennial Gate

Ezekiel 44:1-3 (KJB) Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut. 2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut. 3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall ...

Hate Evil

March 26, 2020

Hate Evil

Proverbs 8:13 (KJB) The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

Indeed, this particular verse is not popular scripture in the times in which we live.  Why, because it ties together fear of the Lord and directs us to hate evil.  You see, the world loves to cozy up to corruption and to disregard God.  The word disregard is not even strong enough for describing how any person ...

The Underpinning of Idolatry

The Underpinning of Idolatry

Colossians 3:5-6 (KJB) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.

These verses tell us about the roots of idolatry at work in this world.  These world based things are often worshipped over and above cherishing God.  Rather than allowing God’s peace rule and rein in their hearts, many people choose to serve and savor the stuff ...

In That Day

In That Day

Revelation 21:4 (KJB) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

This wonderful promise about our future in sweet fellowship with God is one that many hearts focus on when facing heartbreaking trials and tribulations in this world.  It tells us that God will wipe the tears from off our face Himself.  Not only that but ...

Humbled Servant

March 23, 2020

Humbled Servant

Luke 22:41-42 (KJB) And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

Jesus Christ sought out the will of His Father in heartfelt, humble prayer on His knees.  He pursued communication with His Father away from His followers and disciples so that He could be in prayerful one on one communion with Him. 

Jesus Christ was open, truthful, ...

Wisdom Brings Fairness and Perfect Judgment

March 22, 2020

Wisdom Brings Fairness and Perfect Judgment

Proverbs 1:3 (KJB) To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity.

“Don’t judge me…” How many times have you heard this mantra?  Likely often, especially if you have attempted to speak to another about the loving and judging nature of God.  You see, a person cannot personally know God unless he is familiar with His entire character, which goes way beyond comprehending His grace-filled love for self and others. It is moving ...

God Offers Simple Soundness

God Offers Simple Soundness

2 Timothy 1:7 (KJB) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

It is not big news that some in this world attempt to make a living by trying to alter the state of the mind and body. 

“What, you might say- What do you mean?” 

Mind control is big business, but is nothing more than an attempt to maneuver another person into doing, saying, or ...
