Modern Beliefs Whittle Away at This Verse

John 3:16 (KJB) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

This scripture verse is the backbone of possessing a personal belief in Christ.  It is a spiritual powerhouse, a gift, encompassing the message contained throughout the entire canon of scripture.

However, sadly, modern preachers whittle away at God’s everlasting nature recorded in this verse.  Rather than ...

Eve Was The First Mother to Lose A Child

Genesis 4:8 (KJB) And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

Crooked Collaborators

Psalm 41:9 (KJB) Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

This pointed verse from the book of Psalms speaks to us about a trusted friend and advisor, or a “friend-enemy,” who stabs another well-meaning soul in the back.  I am sure if you have lived on this earth for any length of time, you can relate to this back-stabbing incident.

The closet application in ...

Your Reflection In The Mirror

James 1:23-24 (KJB) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. Nonetheless, Jacob sought the will and way of God in this situation.

As a person grows older, often he or she comes to a time when they despise ...

Wisdom and Understanding

Proverbs 3:13-18 (KJB) Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. 17 Her ...

Abide In The Vine

John 15:4-5 (KJV) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

These verses give us important instructions for living a successful spiritual life in ...
