Are We Blind Also?

Are We Blind Also?

John 9:40-41 (KJB) And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? 41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.

A person can be bent on sin and death being naturally blinded by the presence of their own propensity to sin.  You see, to sin is natural, but to ...

The World Has Many Critics

The World Has Many Critics

Hebrews 10:24 (KJB) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.

Undoubtedly, many of you will agree with me when I say this world is filled with critics, at work in saved and lost hearts alike.  It is not necessary to look very hard for finding a person willing to critique everything you say and do.  Don’t get me wrong, while it is important to be discerning and assess ...

Seem to be Religious

Seem to be Religious

James 1:26-27 (KJB) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Did you know that there is a sincere test to prove a profession of faith is genuine and that not ...

Suffering for Doing Right

September 15th, 2019

Suffering for Doing Right

1 Peter 4:19 (KJB) Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

Doing right in God’s estimation, even though it most often involves trials and suffering does have great rewards but perhaps not in receiving such “spiritual booty” in a tangible manner or potential realized in this world.  Choosing to do right should be tied solely to ...

The Children Struggled in the Womb

The Children Struggled in the Womb

Genesis 25:21-23 (KJB) And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. 22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD. 23 And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall ...

I Hope You Find this Verse in Your Bible

I Hope You Find this Verse in Your Bible

Acts 8:37 (KJB) And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Sigh… many of the modern perversions have omitted this verse from their lifeless Bibles.  I hope that the Bible you read daily basis has this, and many other removed verses included within its pages.

Why is that important you may ask?  Well ...

Why, Yes, I Am Narrow Minded

September 12th, 2019

Why, Yes, I Am Narrow Minded

John 14:6 (KJB) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Those who do not believe in Christ might refer to such verses, God-centered minds, and ministries honoring God as narrowminded and constricted.  Why, yes, thank you, we certainly do resemble such a world based characterization of our God-honoring interests and intentions and in pointing to the one pathway available ...

Find Pasture

Find Pasture

John 10:9 (KJB) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

Because I live in a rural area, finding pasture brings a picture of cows eating in the field to my mind when I read this verse.  This sounds simplistic, but God always has a way of bringing truth down to the bottom shelf by using common ordinary every day things to ...

The Wind is Invisible

The Wind is Invisible

John 3:8 (KJB) The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Jesus is speaking in this verse.  He is using the wind as an illustration in describing the Spirit of God.  Just like the wind, the Spirit of God cannot be seen or manipulated by mankind.  However, just like wind, God’s ...

More Needful

Philippians 1:22-24 (KJB) But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. 23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you.

The Apostle Paul was inspired to parse what can seem to be contradictory thoughts.  Once a person digs ...
