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

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 ...

Sometimes God Says “Pack and Move”

Genesis 12:4-5 (KJB) So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and ...

A Man Cannot Compromise with God

1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJB) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Agreeing with the nature and Spirit of God is just that, being like-minded with Jesus Christ.  To align with God is to stand with Him and be in opposition to the wicked ways at work in this world.  This means ...

Cain Rejected God

September 6th, 2019

Cain Rejected God

Genesis 4:6-7 (KJB) And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? 7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

We serve a God of second chances.  Not just in this world today.  God has always desired for our spiritual best at a great ...

As Long as He is A Child

As Long as He is A Child

Galatians 4:1-2 (KJB) Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; 2 But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.

A minor is subject to his or her guardians.  Whether they be his or her natural parents, stepparent(s), grandparent(s), or another authority figure granted in custody in an official capacity, or in ...

Job Saw God

September 4th, 2019

Job Saw God

Job 42:5 (KJB) I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee.

Job had heard things about God.  Likely even heard the voice of God.  This next statement is jaw-dropping- Job saw God.  Somehow, someway God was present on this earth.

Was this a sudden apparent manifestation of God?

Was this a vision that Job had of God?

The text recorded is not clear of the logistics surrounding this, but it leaves ...

Building Apart from God is In Vain

Building Apart from God is In Vain

Psalm 127:1-2 (KJB)   A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.  2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

If you think the construction of new houses in this world is ...

The Freedom to Do and To Say What Is Right

September 2nd, 2019

The Freedom to Do and To Say What Is Right

2 Corinthians 3:17 (KJB) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

True freedom does not leave a soul in bondage to ideals, handouts, whims, religiosity, or in adhering to civil rules and out of spiritual synchrony or fellowship with God as is legislated by lost hearts in this world.  Bondage at work in this world always leads lost souls to ...

The Evil Spirit Answered Sceva

September 1st, 2019

The Evil Spirit Answered Sceva

Acts 19:13-16 (KJB) Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. 14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. 15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? ...
