Romans 6:23 (KJB) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
There is only one result or ending associated with sin.
Sin only brings death.

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJB) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The first thing to note in this verse is that the focus is on being in Christ. To be in Christ is a spiritual state of the heart eager and willing to be under the headship or spiritual leadership of God.

Acts 17:22 (KJB) Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
Religious and superstitious lie at different ends of the spiritual spectrum.
The Apostle Paul was a man who desired to follow the will and way of God. He was a man who desired to please God, as his life proves. At all personal cost. In doing so, Paul was used greatly of God including penning numerous books of the ... Continue Reading →

Nothing could be more conceited and arrogant than to think that a man could change the very words spoken on this earth by Jesus Christ. But that is exactly what we find with the above verses divinely recorded in ... Continue Reading →
Matthew 5:31-32 (KJB) It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
This world increasingly offers a widening venue for “drive-thru weddings and prides itself on the availability of instant divorce and for a multitude of reasons. However, most of these reasons do not align with ... Continue Reading →
John 7:18 (KJB) He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
This world is overwhelmed with lost hearted individuals seeking their own glory. Realizing the truth of such a spiritually sad situation makes understanding this verse vital in being right with God and in being prepared for their undeniable eternal future.
See, a person is either proud of God and desires to honor and glorify Him- or they are ... Continue Reading →
1 Corinthians 15:45 (KJB) And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
A living being, a life-giving spirit
A living soul, a life-giving spirit
A living Soul, a quickening spirit
Above are three different wordings one can find when looking up this scripture verse found in 1 Corinthians 15:45, a scripture verse penned by the Apostle Paul. Why is such variance found with this verse? It depends on the Bible version used to look up it ... Continue Reading →
