2 Thessalonians 2:11 (KJB) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
A sin-filled heart opposes God, and for any person who chooses to continually reject His truth, God sends strong delusions to cloud and complicate his or her mind in making it impossible for a lost and disobedient person to comprehend Truth.
“This” mentioned in the above verse alludes to the purpose or reason for God choosing to reject some people. Indeed, any ... Continue Reading →

Wisdom in Waterspouts
Psalm 42:7 (KJB) Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
God controls the entire creation including the seas. A waterspout is a storm that rages upon the seas. For lack of better terms, I would venture to describe it to be like a seawater-filled tornado spout that spins and encapsulates great wind with torrential water. Not having seen one personally, I am sure my ... Continue Reading →

Real Torment Commences in Eternity
Matthew 27:3-5 (KJB) Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. 5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

Receive, Remember, and Repent for Christ Will Return
Revelation 3:3 (KJB) Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
This scripture verse gives a man the four “R’s” of personally knowing Christ.
Receive, remember, repent, and return of Christ.
These words are presented in an order in which a man can ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →
