Intrinsically Dishonest

Intrinsically Dishonest

Jeremiah 17:9 (KJB) The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

How many times do you hear, “trust your heart…”  Perhaps this seems like good solid advice to heed and apply in your life.  However, doing so is not biblical and is both physically and spiritually detrimental and, quite frankly, is eternally dangerous. 

The Bible tells us that our hearts cannot be trusted.  Our feelings and emotions lie and camouflage the truth of many matters. Did you ...

It Was A Trap

June 01, 2020

It Was A Trap

John 8:4-6 (KJB) They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

The “they” recorded in this verse of scripture points to religious Pharisees and scribes who were ...

Physical Death, Spiritual Death

May 31, 2020

Physical Death, Spiritual Death

James 2:26 (KJB) For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Physical death separates the body from the soul.

Spiritual death separates a spiritually lost soul from fellowship with God.

This scripture verse tells us that faith alone without works is dead.  This truth, in particular, is vital for every professing Christian to ponder in his or her profession of faith and practice before God.  Genuine faith always accompanies sincere works all for bringing honor and ...

Separation And Sin

Separation And Sin

Isaiah 59:1-2 (KJB) Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Separation from God is always initiated by mankind, for God does not ever move away from any person.  Individuals who disagree with the nature and character of God choose to step aside or run from ...

Willing To Endure

Willing To Endure

1 Timothy 4:10 (KJB) For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

The life of a sincere professing child of God is certainly not ever a bed of roses.  Nor is it like taking a leisurely walk in a park.  If you had to honestly reveal or describe what it is like in following Christ, you might say that some days are like canvassing ...

Taste Death

May 28, 2020

Taste Death

Hebrews 2:9 (KJB) But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

Jesus Christ tasted death for every man.  In other words, He chose to physically die so that every person can elect to live forever.  Jesus came to this earth from the perfection of heaven to suffer and die for the sin of the world.  ...

The World Reconciled Unto God

The World Reconciled Unto God

2 Corinthians 5:19 (KJB) To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

The world is reconciled to God through the finished spiritual work of Jesus Christ.  Whew… that is a spiritual mouthful in this verse.  This doctrine is essential for reconciliation with God in the eternal salvation of every spiritually softened soul.

Another straightforward way to say it- God took all sin, including yours ...

Nailed to The Cross

Nailed to The Cross

Colossians 2:13-14 (KJB) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.

There is such powerful truth in these two verses above.  Go ahead, reread these scripture verses, and let this message settle down into the creases ...

Above Reproach

Above Reproach

2 Corinthians 4:1-2 (KJB) Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; 2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.

The Apostle Paul is making it clear that his ministry is above the rampant dishonesty at work in this world.  His ministry is acceptable and honorable to God, though ...

That Light

May 24, 2020

That Light

John 1:9 (KJB) That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

This verse presents a theological conundrum for some laypersons and Bible scholars alike.  Why, because this verse states the true Light (notice the capitalization of the word light here) lights every man that enters this world.  Many will attempt to reason that if God’s light rests on every soul, then every person is saved the very moment he or she is born ...
