A Man Cannot Compromise with God

1 Corinthians 15:58 (KJB) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Agreeing with the nature and Spirit of God is just that, being like-minded with Jesus Christ.  To align with God is to stand with Him and be in opposition to the wicked ways at work in this world.  This means ...

The Freedom to Do and To Say What Is Right

September 2nd, 2019

The Freedom to Do and To Say What Is Right

2 Corinthians 3:17 (KJB) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

True freedom does not leave a soul in bondage to ideals, handouts, whims, religiosity, or in adhering to civil rules and out of spiritual synchrony or fellowship with God as is legislated by lost hearts in this world.  Bondage at work in this world always leads lost souls to ...

Spiritual Adultery

Spiritual Adultery

James 4:4 (KJB) Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

This is the crux of having a personal relationship with God. A man cannot lean on things of this world and God at the same time.  Things of this world are temporary and lie in opposition to God.  Things of an eternal nature identify ...

Spinning Your Tires

Spinning Your Tires

2 Timothy 3:7 (KJB) Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

This short verse describes the state of many people in this world.  Numerous empty hearts only continually search for the wisdom and understanding of God, but sadly they are looking in the wrong places.  This innate searching is a natural behavior only satisfied in having a personal relationship with God.

Cracking a book and learning world-based knowledge does nothing for a ...

On the Straight and Narrow

February 23rd, 2019

On the Straight and Narrow

Matthew 7:14 (KJB) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

It is true, the road most traveled in this world is an open highway leading to certain physical and spiritual death.  It is the pathway of least resistance, the most inviting as it calls to the flesh, and is littered with emotions and feelings, and ignores the reality of the Truth ...

Treasures or Troubles

February 15, 2019

Treasures or Troubles

Proverbs 15:6 (KJB) In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

This Proverb attempts to help us understand the difference between lasting prosperity and continual spiritual poorness.  Now, this simple precept rings true whether a man is talking about the perpetual state of his spiritual health or the health of his secular state and finances.

When a man chooses to live righteously, the state of his life and ...

Crookedness and Corruption Always Catch Up with Con Men

October 15th, 2018

Crookedness and Corruption Always Catch Up with Con Men

Proverbs 11:3 (KJB) The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.

A crooked man can only get away with selling a worthless bill of goods for a relatively short period of time.  Eventually, his choice to be dishonest will catch up with Him.  A con man is a tricky man who is good at deceiving others.

However, any person who chooses to identify with ...

Wise Words from a Devout Jew

Wise Words from a Devout Jew

Acts 10:34-35 (KJB) Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Peter opened his mouth and boldly revealed thoughts that had been at work in his heart.

Peter a devout Jew, had certainly been raised from his youth with a picture of his nation being “the chosen nation” ...
