Labor, Sweat, Sorrow, Death, Dust

Genesis 3:19 (KJB) In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

God told Adam since sin entered the world, every man would face hard work and sweat equity in producing food for himself and his family.  Working hard to pay the bills and provide for the family is nothing new ...

Like Sodom and Gomorrah

Isaiah 1:9-10 (KJB) Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. 10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

The prophet Isaiah spoke about the wicked times in which he lived.  He likened it to the atmosphere and spiritual darkness which was ...

Abram Did Not Want Sodom’s Spoils

Genesis 14:21-24 (KJB) And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and take the goods to thyself. 22 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth, 23 That I will not take from a thread even to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, ...

Ready to Burst Forth

Ready to Burst Forth

Job 32:19 (KJB) Behold, my belly is as wine which hath no vent; it is ready to burst like new bottles.

Elihu could not contain himself.  He was ready to burst forth in giving his “humble” opinion.  He likened himself to a bottle of wine in ancient times which when fermented could pop open and burst its contents forth.

Perhaps you can relate to a time or two you were impatiently waiting to give your opinion to ...

Earthly Ranking Means Nothing

June 4th, 2019

Earthly Ranking Means Nothing

Romans 2:11 (KJB) For there is no respect of persons with God.

When the Lord returns, or upon your physical death in this world, earthly rank and privilege will be of no value.  What a man strives for accomplishing on this earth has no meaning in the eternal realm.

The Bible clearly tells us that a priest, a master, a mistress, a seller, a lender, and the taker of usury will all face the same standard of ...

Your Thoughts

Your Thoughts

Proverbs 16:3 (KJB) Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

Your head is one big air hole just waiting to be filled with thought.  Unfortunately, many people do not consider, even for a moment, what goes in and comes out of their mind each day.  Sadly, many people allow seemingly harmless drivel of this world to find space to occupy rent-free inside their head.

However, consider that if a person does not allow God ...

Curious Art Books Burned

Acts 19:17-20 (KJB) And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. 19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand ...

Pressed Them to Walk Worthy

1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 (KJB) As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children, 12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

There are three words Paul used to describe the appeal and spiritual personality of the men preaching among the Thessalonian brethren.

These words are exhorted, comforted, and charged.

Their preaching was encouraging, consoling, and finally pleaded ...

Right Hand, Left Hand

May 31st, 2019

Right Hand, Left Hand

Ecclesiastes 10:2 (KJB) A wise man’s heart is at his right hand; but a fool’s heart at his left.

The Bible does make a distinction between right and left as found in a few places in His Word.  The most recognizable one is when Jesus Christ sat down at the right hand of God His Father. Why, the right-hand position, you may ask?  Doing so signifies that Jesus Christ was finished with the spiritual work given ...

A Future Eternal Glory

A Future Eternal Glory

James 1:12 (KJB) Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

Not only is salvation an instantaneous spiritual event and a lifetime cleaning a renewing process, but it culminates into a promised future glory.  A divine spiritual crowning on the very moment of physical death.

This scripture says a genuine child of God will receive the ...
