God’s Accounting Process

God’s Accounting Process

Romans 4:3-5 (KJV) For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

When you think of accounting on this earth, perhaps you are a math nut or a financial guru, and your mind jumps right ...

Commit To And Trust God

February 27, 2021

Commit To And Trust God

Psalm 37:5 (KJV) Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Handing our anxiety and angst over to God, placing Him first in our life is the beginning of innumerable blessings.  It is not because any child of God is good and deserving, but because God always desires to give us His best or unmerited favor.

That is right; all that any soul must do is commit ...

Imagine The Wailing

Imagine The Wailing

Revelation 1:7 (KJV) Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

This verse states that “the earth shall wail because of him…”

Just for a moment, pause and consider the wailing of the Jewish people.  This sadness is because they and their ancestors failed to recognize and follow Jesus Christ, for it is in this ...

The End Of The Tribulation

Matthew 25:31-32 (KJV) When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.

These verses point to the ending of the tribulation.  Though some people get these verses confused with the return of ...

The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ

The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ

2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 (KJV) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

The Apostle Paul expounds in his letter to the Thessalonian Church that Christ’s return or the pre-tribulation rapture ...

Take God At His Word

February 23, 2021

Take God At His Word

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

It is sad that many throw faith out the window today.  Even though God gave us many promises and illustrations we can hang onto in His Word concerning faith, without seeing direct evidence, it is hard for some individuals to believe in what God promised.

God even gave us the “Faith Hall of Fame” for cementing our hope ...

And It Was Imputed

And It Was Imputed

James 2:23 (KJV) And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

I hope you understand that God blesses sincere faith. This scripture is not pointing to trust placed in anything or any person. Instead, it is solely referring to sincere hope placed in the power and presence of God for the salvation of a lost soul. 

Yes, indeed, it ...

Make Known To their Children

Psalm 78:5-8 (KJV) For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: And ...

What Does Scripture Say?

What Does Scripture Say?

Romans 4:3-5 (KJV) For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.

The Apostle Paul here in this verse is first looking back to the Old Testament to Abraham’s salvation.  Why, because the salvation ...

Believed AND Turned

February 20, 2021

Believed AND Turned

Acts 11:21 (KJV) And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.

This verse is tacked onto the end of an accounting of the work of some diligent followers of Christ, and it gives us great insight into witnessing to others and the divine power of God’s salvation process.  This scripture tells us that these missionaries scattered to other cities after their associate and friend Stephen’s persecution. ...
