Prophecy About Perilous Times
2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJB) This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Each of us must ask ... Continue Reading →

Hebrews 5:12-13 (KJB) For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

The Fruit Always Triumphs
Galatians 5:22-23 (KJB) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
We are alive in tough spiritual times. However, professing Christians must take to heart the Spirit of God at work in their heart and life, for no matter their circumstances, the Spirit of God and His character perpetually prevails.
You see, no spiritually regenerated person can ever rationally excuse any choice of bad behavior. Holy behavior, or ... Continue Reading →

Sorrow Unto Repentance
2 Corinthians 7:9-10 (KJB) Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
It is a sad thing that many souls profess faith. Still, a number is either lost or wayward spiritually speaking and have subsequently ... Continue Reading →

Received The Atonement
Romans 5:11 (KJB) And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
The preceding verses set us for us both the meaning and application of the atonement. The short and sweet biblical-based definition of this word is reconciliation to God. However, atonement cannot ever be considered lightly. Reconciliation is a big vital chunk in a right spiritual relation to God.
In essence, reconciliation means to agree with God about ... Continue Reading →

Saved In Childbearing
1 Timothy 2:14-15 (KJB) And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

Show Diligence and Dedication
