Salvation Sure and Sealed
2 Timothy 2:19 (KJB) Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
I am sure you are familiar with a seal. We commonly find sealed packages and items in numerous places. Secure boxes and containers are the norm today in the battle against both shoplifting and tampering. Letters are sealed to protect the content from prying eyes, theft, or unwanted dispersion before it reaches ... Continue Reading →

John 12:24-25 (KJB) Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. 25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
It may seem as if these scripture verses are simply just agricultural and that the only point of them is to discuss the planting of a seed of corn ... Continue Reading →

1 Samuel 2:6 (KJB) The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.
Hannah prays, eloquently. In her heartfelt dialogue with God, she expressed not only His power and presence but the truth that God alone holds the key to both life and death. Hannah served a big God. Not some willy nilly god with her today and out of her life tomorrow.
No, Hannah prayed to and served The God of heaven and earth. God who is divinely in charge of both ... Continue Reading →

Romans 12:1-2 (KJB) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
We live in an age of an overabundance of information. There is an excess of data concerning both world based and spiritual matters ... Continue Reading →

Proverbs 15:13 (KJB) A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
I find it quite sad when professing Christians spend all their time making light of current situations with satire. Sarcasm is not suitable in every circumstance of life. God did not call us to make others laugh by making a mockery of this lost world but rather to sow seeds of the gospel message.
God’s Word tells us that It is by sorrow in the heart that ... Continue Reading →

Proverbs 22:15 (KJB) Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
Foolish behavior is to be broke in the heart of the matter. God gives parents decrees, direction, and spiritual tools necessary to raise and correct children in a proper manner. The Bible is an instruction book about living in this world and for being personally prepared for eternity.
God speaks in the Bible about the rod of correction. This correcting rod is not a solid ... Continue Reading →

Romans 8:1 (KJB) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
A person in this world accused of a crime must have their day in court and allow a lawyer to plead their case before the judge. If found guilty, he or she will be formally sentenced by the presiding judge for the crime.
Whether it be a contested parking ticket or a more serious charge like murder, a person must face ... Continue Reading →

Isaiah 53:6 (KJB) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Willful wandering was not prevalent in ancient times only. This kind of nonsense is still fashionable and working in the hearts of many people to this day. It is true; many people desire to “do their own thing,” by living a self-willed life rather than following what God’s will is for their life.
Sadly, God desires ... Continue Reading →

Romans 5:7-8 (KJB) For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Did you catch the gist of this vital scripture verse? God loved every person despite his or her lost spiritual heart and innate sin nature over two thousand years ago. God loved all mankind even ... Continue Reading →

1 Samuel 1:12-14 (KJB) And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth. 13 Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14 And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? Put away thy wine from thee.
Hannah was pouring her heart out to God. It is likely that she could be heard voicing her prayers to God ... Continue Reading →
