Live By Faith
Hebrews 10:38-39 (KJB) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
These verses serve as the platform for which the “Faith Hall of Fame,” as found in chapter eleven of Hebrews, is developed over time. Indeed, we realize that each of ... Continue Reading →

The Grace of God
Titus 2:11-12 (KJB) For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
The grace of God brings salvation to the softened hearts of humanity.
Not only that, but grace teaches us about ungodliness, the lust of our flesh, to live sober, the importance of righteous living, and instilling godliness in our life.
However, it ... Continue Reading →

Once For All
Hebrews 7:26-27 (KJB) For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
These verses, among many others throughout the canon of scripture, tell us that Jesus Christ is set apart from all ... Continue Reading →

Many Are Gullible
James 1:22-23 (KJB) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass.
It is a sad thing that many people fool themselves every day when they peer at their reflection in the mirror. They opt to see what they want to see rather than ... Continue Reading →

A Better Hope
Hebrews 7:19 (KJB) For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
The intention of the law of God is for pointing to sin. It did nothing to perfect a sinner.
What is new today? The bringing of a better hope forever changed the life of every repentant sinner, but what exactly is that better hope?
I hope you know that Jesus Christ is the ... Continue Reading →

A Timeless Statement
Psalm 2:7 (KJB) I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
This event where God declared Jesus Christ was His Son was not a new statement or proclamation. It is important to note that this assertion was so from the beginning. It is hard to wrap your mind around the fact that this truth was so from the start of creation.
God does not have ... Continue Reading →

Perfection Through Obedience
Hebrews 5:8-9 (KJB) Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; 9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.
These verses from the book of Hebrews present a compelling look at both obedience and perfection. Once a soul is spiritually regenerated does not mean that he or she jumps out of the gate vigorously serving God. The reality of the ... Continue Reading →

The Fountains of the Great Deep
Genesis 7:11 (KJB) In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Have you ever given any deep thought to the biblical account of the great flood?

Don’t Give Up When The Going Gets Rough
Psalm 95:7-8 (KJB) For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice, 8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness.

Don’t Let Your Carcass Fall in The Wilderness
Hebrews 3:17 (KJB) But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
Most people have acquainted themselves with the Old Testament account of the Israelites Exodus from Egypt. However, perhaps, not many are personally familiar with vital details that can and should be applied to their life today.
You see, both the Old and New Testament have been recorded for ... Continue Reading →
