Come boldly

Come boldly

Hebrews 4:16 (KJB) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

A sincere child of God either chooses to come boldly to Him or he elects to fall away from Jesus Christ.  You see, a child of God does not come to God just once, but over and over again.  Once his eternal position only found inside a personal relationship with God ...

The Key to Answered Prayer

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

Praying to God is not like rubbing a bottle and summoning a genie who desires to give you your every wish.

In fact, do you know that God does not answer every prayer?  That is probably news to ...

Sin Comes Under the Cover of Darkness

Proverbs 4:18-19 (KJB) But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

Sin is associated with darkness while God is The Light of the world.

There is no way that a person can dress up evil into anything other than what it is- darkness.  While it is ...

Recognize, Confess, and Forsake Sin

Proverbs 28:13 (KJB) He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.

It is not enough to recognize sin, ignore it or cover it up and move on with your life.

Ungodly minded people do often recognize the presence of sin.  Frequently, they just choose to disregard it and any consequences, choosing to write off any penalties as foolishness and bad karma.  The presence of sin in their ...

A Father Asks His Son A Series of Questions

Proverbs 23:29-30 (KJB) Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? 30 They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

These two verses expose a series of events and situations, as a man teaches his son by asking him pertinent questions concerning the effects of alcohol.  In exposing conditions commonly found ...

Prejudice of Any “Flavor” Opposes God

Romans 2:6-11 (KJB) Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 ...

Slandering A Righteous Person with Sexual Accusations is Nothing New

Genesis 39:7-10 (KJB) And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me. 8 But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; 9 There is none greater in this house than I; ...

Mature in Truth

Mature in Truth

1 Corinthians 3:2 (KJB) I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

The Apostle Paul is making two points here for the Corinthian Church believers in this spiritually pointed verse of scripture.

Foremost, there is certainly milk of scripture, or biblical truths easier for immature Christians to comprehend and swallow.  It is like placing truths on the bottom shelf culminating in ...

Jesus Christ Fulfilled the Law

August 2nd, 2019

Jesus Christ Fulfilled the Law

Romans 3:31 (KJB) Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Matthew 5:17 (KJB) Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

The Old Testament Law of God was not abolished, or made void, by the death of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary.  Indeed, the law of God was fulfilled by Jesus ...

Self is always The Problem

August 1st, 2019

Self is always The Problem

John 3:30 (KJB) He must increase, but I must decrease.

We are often our own worst enemy.  Not only that but from birth are naturally drawn to the desires of our own flesh rather than God.  Self is always the problem and never the solution, though a person is born naturally hard-wired to seek his own answers in this world, God is waiting for us to recognize Him.

Once a person distinguishes that me, myself, and ...
