Do you often forge ahead of God according to faulty human reasoning?

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalms 27:14 KJV)

Man is naturally programmed by the god of this world to always be busy and moving about, to be self-sufficient and mentally prepared with a ready answer from a database of humanistic garbage collected in this world.  The god of this world desires for us ...

Have you been born twice; physically and spiritually?

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. (John 3:7 KJV)

“To marvel not…” is to not stand in awe or amazement that Jesus would say “Ye must be born again…”

It should come as no surprise to a child of God that being spiritually born again first requires death.  Mankind is naturally born spiritually dead since sin was introduced upon this earth.   A sprouting of new life in ...

Do you have fruits of the Spirit mounting and maturing in your life?

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Titus 1:16 KJV)

It has been said that “talk is cheap…” and this scripture verse from the book of Titus is biblical proof.  It is easier for mankind to profess having a spiritual relationship with God but much harder to prove it or back it ...

Are you paralyzed by fear? 

And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. ...

Are you being bound or restrained by the lure of sin upon your life?

And the army of the Chaldees pursued after the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho: and all his army were scattered from him. So they took the king, and brought him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah; and they gave judgment upon him. And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, ...

But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them ...

Are you a spiritual time bomb?

They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes: Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips. (Psalms 106:32-33 KJV)

The Israelites, whom Moses was leading to the Promised Land, had provoked him more than once with their whining and complaining in the midst of this long and often arduous journey.  Moses had heard many murmurs and complaints about no water, ...

We cannot see God without His purity filling our heart.

Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. (Matthew 5:8 KJV)

This verse is beatitude from the Sermon on the Mount. The Bible tells us the condition of our heart is essential to our spiritual health.  Our heart condition affects the overall condition including our senses.  Man either has use of his natural senses tuned to the god of this world or is fortified and supernaturally guided ...

Moses aligned himself with God

By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he ...

Supernatural direction and correction steers man upon the narrow pathway.

And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. (Isaiah 30:20-21 KJV)

Throughout ...
