Not At Ease In This World

Amos 6:1 (KJV) Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!

These verses speak of living at ease in this world.  Contextually it points to the ancient cities of Jerusalem and Samaria.  Neither then nor today should any regenerated soul live at ease in any location in this wicked world.  Indeed, folks ...

Associations are Important

2 Corinthians 6:14-16 (KJV) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and ...

You Cannot Play With Devils And Serve God

1 Corinthians 10:21 (KJV) Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

The Apostle Paul is speaking here.  He wastes no time setting the record straight about the chasm between God and the god of this world.  Please note that this is not just a Sunday worship separation from evil; it is an ...

Hannah Highlights God’s Character and Power

1 Samuel 2:6-10 (KJV) The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and ...

Why Have Ye Done This?

Judges 2:1-2 (KJV) And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you. And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my ...

Prayer Promises

Prayer Promises

Matthew 7:8 (KJV) For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Most, if not all of us, have seen a painting that pictures Jesus Christ standing outside the church door, knocking from the outside. This posture correlates with the message of this verse.  God has indeed left modern churches of this day which have strayed far from His intent and message of truth.  However, He is ...

Open Wide

Open Wide

Psalm 81:10 (KJV) I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.

This scripture makes me think of feeding a young toddler.  Zoom, zoom comes the train.  Or open wide here comes the airplane, you say as you attempt to make the sound of a jet engine coming in for a landing right in the young child’s mouth with a spoonful of food.  ...

Whatsoever You Ask

John 14:13-14 (KJV) And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

It is shocking what one can receive by asking.  Now I am not pointing to asking the government, your friend or family member, or your employer, requesting help from any person, group. Or the government for support is sure to ...

Ask For What You Want

Ask For What You Want

James 4:2 (KJV) Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

Sometimes it seems overly simple to ask God for what you want, too easy, yet many fail to bring their innermost cares and concerns to God.  Our instinct is to get what we want when we want it and leave God out of the picture.  God ...
