The Presence of God Makes Your Heart Sing

October 20th, 2019

Exodus 15:1 (KJB) Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

I am singing in victory. 

I am singing in praise.

I am singing in sweet fellowship with God.

I am singing in the middle of the trails of life.

Singing praises to God is not an ...

A Man is Not Made to Carry the Weight and Woe of Sin

October 19, 2019

A Man is Not Made to Carry the Weight and Woe of Sin

1 John 1:9 (KJB) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The grace of God gives a man the strength to bear his burdens.  Without that, a man naturally buckles under the weighty burden of sin.  Why, because mankind was never meant to carry the burden ...

Weight of Affliction

October 18, 2019

Weight of Affliction

Exodus 1:9-11 (KJB) And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: 10 Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. 11 Therefore they did set over ...

Flattery is Smooth and Risky

October 17, 2019

Flattery is Smooth and Risky

Psalm 55:21 (KJB) The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

Smooth words flowing from a mouth can be an attempt to camouflage a waring heart.  Be cautious of any person who perhaps tries to “smooth things over” using flattery for it can be an attempt to conceal conflict and depression at work in their heart.

Humor is ...

Sin Brings Certain Death

October 16, 2019

Romans 6:23 (KJB) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

There is only one result or ending associated with sin. 

Sin only brings death. 

Spiritual death is an eternal presence without God forever.

The result of personally knowing God is eternal life in fellowship with God.

Eternal life is a gift of God, not because of any ...

Children, Woman, But Where Are Men of Society?

October 11th, 2019

Children, Woman, But Where Are Men of Society?

Isaiah 3:12 (KJB) As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

This ancient Old Testament description amazingly fits along with growing family relational mishaps in our society today.  Why, because the devil merely recycles his brand of evil and deception from generation to generation offering no new evil or divisiveness ...

Following Who?

October 10th, 2019

Following Who?

2 Corinthians 10:17-18 (KJB) But he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. 18 For not he that commendeth himself is approved, but whom the Lord commendeth.

Isn’t it sad today that so many pastors have a following and a fellowship complete with a professional image which results in a following of their own familiar face and name rather than being a ministry pointing to God?  Perhaps such men have a popular face, Bibles to sell engraved ...

Who Is A Liar?

October 9th, 2019

Who Is A Liar?

1 John 2:22-23 (KJB) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

I remember hearing that a liar’s nose would grow bigger and bigger, otherwise known as the “Pinocchio effect,” when growing up.  Certainly, you can remember this story about ...

Salvation Does Not Rely on Me

October 8th, 2019

Salvation Does Not Rely on Me

Ephesians 2:8 (KJB) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.

Thank God that salvation does not rely on me or my work. I would undoubtedly let myself down repeatedly.  However, the spiritual work of salvation is done and finished forever.  God sent His Only Son to accomplish what I could never do for myself or others on the cross at Calvary.

Jesus Christ ...

Spiritual Disorder

October 7th, 2019

Spiritual Disorder

1 Corinthians 11:8-9 (KJB) For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

God created mankind with two distinct genders with each given a distinct and diverse role.  God gave every person a pattern, potential, and expectations, as He declared this intended order among both men and women.  God did not leave room for any additional genders or ...
