No Basis for Self-Righteousness or Individual Merit
Romans 3:27-28 (KJB) Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
There is no room for any level of spiritual smugness in our personal relationship with God. Nor is there any room for building prideful fences and barriers in relating with others. Simply put, pride ... Continue Reading →

His Identity Was Proven Beyond Doubt
1 Corinthians 15:20 (KJB) But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
Jesus Christ definitively backed up His claim to be the Son of God. How did He do this you might ask? He sent His Only Son to remove the penalty of sin and death ushering new eternal spiritual life.
It is true, we serve a risen Savior. Jesus Christ cannot be found as a dead ... Continue Reading →

And All Thy House
Genesis 7:1 (KJB) And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
Noah was a man who faithfully served and trusted God. Living this kind of “sold-out life” not only affected the spiritual state of his own life but worked miracles in the lives of others about him. Noah was a billboard for God to those around him, though ... Continue Reading →

Many Shall Run to and Fro
Daniel 12:4 (KJB) But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
This verse from the Old Testament points foremost to the Jewish people, God’s own people. While it is true that God’s chosen people have been blinded to Truth for some time, there will be a day coming where their eyes and ... Continue Reading →

A Great High Priest
Hebrews 4:14-16 (KJB) Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain ...

Don’t Take God for Granted
Psalm 100:3 (KJB) Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
A professing child of God is His; physically, mentally, spiritually. Just like Galatians 2:20, we are created by God and are blood-bought spiritual children of God. God did not create mankind so that they could live for things of this world. Nor did ... Continue Reading →

And Such Were Some of You
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (KJB) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name ...

God Leaves No Wiggle Room
Matthew 12:30 (KJB) He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
God has painted a unique spiritual pathway for the heart of every professing child of God. His power and presence are brushed upon the palette of nature poised in this world. There is no guesswork involved in choosing to agree with God and walk in His direction as a man sojourns in this world.
This ... Continue Reading →

Moral Works Mean Nothing Outside of a Relationship with God
Ephesians 2:8-10 (KJB) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Any person, saved or lost in heart, can choose to do good and “be” good. ... Continue Reading →

Foolish Galatians Reprimanded
Galatians 3:1 (KJB) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
Paul comes straight at obvious spiritual errors of the Galatians armed with the truths of God. Oh, how foolish they were in trying to keep the law, perhaps even making Paul’s heart skip a beat, as he considered their misplaced confidence in such blatantly incorrect doctrine.
Hadn’t they ... Continue Reading →
