Fear of Death Is Natural

Fear of Death Is Natural

Hebrews 2:15 (KJB) And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

Did you know that fear and trepidation about death, especially one’s death, is natural?  Not only is this a frequent leaning among lost spiritual hearts, but doing so places every anxious soul into bondage about death.  Thinking about death makes lost souls anxious and trepid concerning their mortality.

But, perhaps you do not realize that looking forward to ...

Sinners Know Their Guilt Before God

August 15, 2020

Sinners Know Their Guilt Before God

Isaiah 59:12-14 (KJB) For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; 13 In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. 14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen ...

Don’t Let Truth Slip

Don’t Let Truth Slip

Hebrews 2:1 (KJB) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.

Living on this earth, perhaps at times, seems complicated and arduous.  However, God tells us that life is like a vapor, here now and perhaps gone in the next instant.  Knowing that this life is short-lived makes recognizing and spreading the truths of God that much more critical.

It ...

A Divided Person

August 13, 2020

A Divided Person

James 1:8 (KJB) A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

This short verse schools us in dealing with a person who is not spiritually stable.    This verse describes a person split between serving the Lord and following his flesh and in imitating the god of this world.  Such a person is both double-minded and unstable in all his dealings.  He or she may profess to have a personal relationship with God; however, his or ...

Be Yourself, Not!

August 12, 2020

Be Yourself, Not!

1 Peter 1:16 (KJB) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

I hope you will agree that God does not call any of us to do what we want to do ever.  You see, the direction God gives always revolves around Him, not us.  God desires for us to be holy, just as He is holy.

Oh, even though we often like to wear our brand sense concerning purity and usually will choose to ...

Without Question

August 11, 2020

Without Question

1 Timothy 3:16 (KJB) And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

This verse is rich in godliness.  Not only that, but it reveals for us that holiness is no longer a mystery to unravel, but it is available for our recognition and application.  Thank God we live on the completed ...

Focused on Minute Details

Matthew 23:23-24 (KJB) Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

The scribes and Pharisees were hypocrites.  Sadly, they often missed the bigger picture because they got unnecessarily ...

A Parallel Between Christ and Adam

A Parallel Between Christ and Adam

Romans 5:17-18 (KJB) For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.

Perhaps these verses seem to be ...

A Universal Heart Condition

August 8, 2020

A Universal Heart Condition

Romans 5:12 (KJB) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.

There is much confusion at work in this world concerning sin.  If you ask lost hearts, many will not agree that they have a universal sinful heart condition.  They will attempt to describe themselves as moral and ethical people who are fundamentally good.

However, that claim does not ...

Lost All Things, Gained Christ

Lost All Things, Gained Christ

Philippians 3:8-10 (KJB) Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of ...
