A Wolf Running With The Big Dogs Knows When To Bite
John 18:2 (KJV) And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
Judas ran with the big dogs. Yet, Judas was intimately familiar with Jesus’s habits and knew that He resorted to prayer in this garden for one on one communication with God. This ancient situation proves that a person can attend church, be close to sincerely serving hearts, say the ... Continue Reading →

The Wicked Are Like Scavenging Rats
Revelation 22:14-15 (KJV) Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
The thought of giant rats foraging for food, especially near me, makes me shudder. I think that most of us can recall a movie or ... Continue Reading →

“Male and Female created he them…”
Genesis 5:1-2 (KJV) This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
The title of this devotion is taken straight from The Bible. If you did not already notice “and called their name Adam, in the day they ... Continue Reading →

Acts 12:1-2 (KJV) Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
Suppose you think that the times in which we live today are filled with politically motivated persecution and evil and are substantially different than ancient politics. In that case, you should read about extreme events that took place in the early church. You will soon understand that ... Continue Reading →

Take Criticism and Condemnation With Grace
1 Peter 2:23 (KJV) Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.
Indeed, you know that the Apostle Peter speaks in this scripture about the gentle, unassuming, loving nature of Jesus Christ, especially when a person points a finger of judgment towards Him, without merit. As Jesus Christ suffers, he does not treat others with the same contempt and disregard. ... Continue Reading →

If You Are In Christ, You Are Pleasing To God
Philippians 2:13 (KJV) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
A child of God does not get saved by placing faith in God and pleasing Him with works. No, God was pleased with the finished work of Jesus Christ on Calvary, and if you are living in Christ and redeemed by His shed blood rather than wrapped up in ... Continue Reading →

There Are Two Spirits At Work
1 Corinthians 2:10-12 (KJV) But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is ... Continue Reading →

There Will Always Be Both Rich And Poor
Proverbs 22:2 (KJV) The rich and poor meet together: the LORD is the maker of them all.
Those striving to equalize society in every fashion, including in the financial realm, would do well to read God’s Word. This necessary reading includes time spent studying the book of Proverbs. Stopping this scripture above to pause and drink its complex yet straightforward message each person can choose to take to heart. The conclusion, there ... Continue Reading →

Where Are All The Lions?
Proverbs 28:1 (KJV) The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.
It seems we live in a world full of lions, but when it comes to those who publically profess a personal relationship with Christ, God’s people often present as meek and mild as field mice. In other words, the content of this message from scripture seems far removed among lost and saved souls. Instead, the wicked are ... Continue Reading →

Not A Mamma’s Boy
Proverbs 16:9 (KJV) A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
The leading and direction of a publically professing man of God are critical, especially true for a man who stands in the pulpit. Indeed, any man who led to step up the podium must be a humbled man of God whom the Spirit of God leads to commit to teaching and preaching to others.
It is easy for an overburdened preacher to ... Continue Reading →
