Wickedness and Evil Grieved God

Genesis 6:5-6 (KJB) And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.

God knows the heart condition of every person since the beginning.  The presence of sin grieves God.  In fact, God was so bereaved at ...

The Future of the Church

1st Thessalonians – The Future of the Church

 

Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul Series

 “Acts 17:1 (KJB) Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews.

The Apostle Paul, Silas, and Timothy traveled to Macedonia making a stop in this city situated along the sea in a lively seaport.  Details were recorded in Acts about Thessalonica.  These missionary men received a warm welcome here ...

See Two Men in Shining Garments

Luke 24:4-6 (KJB) And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee.

It has often been said ...

Divine Order, Godliness, and Longevity Go Hand in Hand

Divine Order, Godliness, and Longevity Go Hand in Hand

Exodus 20:12 (KJB) Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

There is a divine order to living successfully in this world.  Trying to do it any other way never brings eternal success, in this world or for eternity.

First, emphasis must be placed on the foundation God has set firmly in place.  Second this foundation must be ...

A “Know It All” Has A Lot to Learn

A “Know It All” Has A Lot to Learn

1 Corinthians 8:2 (KJB) And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

We have many “know it all’s” in this world who are puffed up and filled with human knowledge, but perhaps useless in things of God.

What, you say?  Useless knowledge? “…but I’ve been to college and have a formal education.  I have a high salary career and a title ...

All Under His Control

All Under His Control

Matthew 28:18 (KJB) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Jesus Christ was getting ready to ascend back to His Father in heaven.  Before leaving this earth, He spoke candidly to His disciples about the perpetual; spiritual victory which had taken place upon the cross at Calvary.  They were probably still a little awestruck at the recent supernatural events which had taken place right ...

Hardened Hearts Will Not Prosper

Hardened Hearts Will Not Prosper

Job 9:4 (KJB) He is wise in heart, and mighty in strength: who hath hardened himself against him, and hath prospered?

A short verse with a strong spiritual message for revealing a critical question each of us should ask ourselves.

Who can prosper without the power and presence of God at work in their heart and life?

If you glance out at the world, you can see many people who seem to have it all, big homes, ...

Though the Personal Suffering Would Be Great, Jesus Was Willing

Though the Personal Suffering Would Be Great, Jesus Was Willing

Luke 22:42 (KJB) Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

No human can even begin to imagine the immense suffering Jesus Christ willingly faced on Calvary.  Did you know that the humanity, or the flesh of Jesus Christ, suffered just as you or I can experience in our flesh covered body?  The Bible is descriptive in the events ...

Foolishly Flying Off the Handle

Foolishly Flying Off the Handle

Proverbs 18:13 (KJB) He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.

People in this world often assess and move in the decision-making process too fast.  Quick decisions can be laced with foolishness, assumptions, incomplete thinking, and often can lead to embarrassment.

It is true, flying off the handle due to a quick assessment or improper evaluation of a situation can sometimes prove to be a fatal move.

In ancient biblical ...

Your Trial is No Match for God’s Grace

Your Trial is No Match for God’s Grace

2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJB) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

There is no test any saved person will face in this world will be too much or too big for the grace of God to handle.  It is true, nothing, ...
