Are you wallowing in pride with god or seeking God and righteousness?

The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. (Psalms 10:4 KJV)

Pride closes spiritual doors; slamming them closed tight.  The matter of pride is in direct conflict or opposition to humility and the spiritual things of God.  Those who operate in pride are at home and comfortable in the darkness of this evil world; enjoying the ...

We are born naturally self-centered not God centered.

For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s. (Philippians 2:20-21 KJV)

Things have not changed dramatically since the early church.  It was hard to find God fearing individuals who put the needs of God and others above their own needs in biblical times as it is today.  Paul was not able to find like-minded men ...

God knows your spiritual health condition

So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. (Job 42:12 KJV)

God allowed His servant Job to be harassed and spiritually agitated by satan; giving satan free rein but protecting Job from harm unto physical death.  Job was put through the mill by satan and hung out to ...

In what system or standard does your hope reside?

Let mine enemy be as the wicked, and he that riseth up against me as the unrighteous. For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul? Will God hear his cry when trouble cometh upon him? Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God? (Job 27:7-10 KJV)

Sometimes it seems that only enemies of God, who are ...

We are naturally wicked from birth.

The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. (Psalms 58:3 KJV)

Yes, you and I are wicked from our physical birth.  Nobody can rightly claim to be righteous upon their own natural standing ever since sin was introduced in the Garden of Eden when the serpent beguiled Eve.

That is why a child can lie so innocently or naturally in their tender young age.  Children ...

God’s truth is simple and eternal

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3 KJV)

Living in the perfect lush environment in the garden with God was Adam and Eve; the environment so perfect they needed nothing more than their personal relationship with God; a spiritual triangle with God at the head, for perfect peace and contentment ...

Are you sitting on the fence?

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:4 KJV)

There is no proverbial “sitting on the fence” with God.  This world is bifurcated, or divided, since Adam’s fall into two existing camps: light and darkness; one camp exists with God the other is in enmity against the things of ...
