The Truth always Brings Fierce Opposition

Philippians 1:28 (KJV) And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.

Yep, you can count on it. Fierce resistance always arises as the truth about God is spoken.  Nothing has changed over the years; in biblical times, hostility is present as facts are revealed.  Jesus Christ told us in multiple passages, like in John 16:33, to expect ...

Do Not Follow The Crowd

Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

These scripture verses give us wise counsel concerning the pathway to heaven in this world.  Sadly, some well-known individuals will tell you ...

Judas Sold Out

Mark 14:10-11 (KJV) And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them. And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised to give him money. And he sought how he might conveniently betray him.

Oh, for the love of money, sadly, lost and wayward hearts will betray another soul.  In this case, as detailed above, Judas was eager to divulge the location of Jesus Christ.  Judas sunk to ...

Follow The Money

Proverbs 17:23 (KJV) A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.

The love of money and power subvert many deals at work in this world.  This kind of corruption is present in underhanded politics, the backroom of our judicial system,  and commonly found at work in boardrooms and business deals. 

This verse above refers to buying off a judge with a bribe.  To find a surreptitious deal, when all is ...

Twisted And Turned

Psalm 82:5 (KJV) They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

Many citizens, leaders, and officials in this world are indeed twisted out of kilter.  However, God remains steady, steadfast, and in control despite any event or circumstance on this earth.  We must keep this truth at the forefront of our mind as we trek through spiritual minefields in this corrupt earth, trying ...

Words Hurt

Job 19:1-2 (KJV) Then Job answered and said, How long will ye vex my soul, and break me in pieces with words?

Job had just faced the wielding and wounding words of his friends.  As you indeed know, words hurt.  His so-called friends banded together to assault him with their opinion that was out of alignment with the teaching of God.  How sad it is that many people choose to brandish others with a war of words that ...

God Does Have A Sense of Humor

Psalm 2:4 (KJV) He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Indeed you know that God does not change, nor does His character.  Here in this brief verse, we learn that God reacts to rebellious hearts with laughter.  Does this fact seem odd to you?  Is it hard to imagine that God finds humor in hearts in opposition to Him?

We need to study this out a ...

Speaking Without All The Facts

Speaking Without All The Facts

Proverbs 18:13 (KJV) He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

All too often, humanity chooses to open his mouth to give an opinion concerning a matter without having all the facts.  This stark statement is a sad historical illustration, applicable today, and remains valid as humans continue to exist on this wicked earth.

All a person needs to do is watch the news for a minute to ...

No Fear

No Fear

Romans 3:13-18 (KJV) Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes.

Nothing fits the times in which we live, as do these descriptive verses from ...
