Belief in God and A Relationship with God Are Two Distinct Things
1 John 2:23 (KJB) Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [but] he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
There is a difference in one’s belief in God and his having a personal relationship with God.
A person can easily express faith in the fact of the existence of God without personally believing in God inside his or her heart. Words are cheap and ... Continue Reading →

Like a Wild Bear Plucks an Innocent Sheep
John 10:28 (KJB) And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
This verse brings a couple thoughts “front and center” to my mind.
For starters, God does not force any man to stay put inside the care and comfort found inside His gracious eternal hand. A man desires in his heart to have a personal relationship with God and ... Continue Reading →

True Liberty Only Comes in a Relationship
Galatians 5:1 (KJB) Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Many well-intentioned people get true liberty and the law of Christ spiritually twisted and tangled. This confusion serves to make Christians who are rigid, knotted and even acting rote about things of God. True liberty in Christ always matches perfectly and blends seamlessly with the commandments and precepts ... Continue Reading →

Two Are Better Than One!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (KJB) Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. 10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? 12 And if one prevail against him, two shall ...

Rich Blessings Found in Christ
Luke 6:20-23 (KJB) And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name ...

A “Spiritual trio”
Matthew 11:27 (KJB) All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Mankind will never “see” God upon this earth. However, he can know about God through a personal relationship with His Son Jesus Christ. They are inseparable. A “spiritual trio” consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
If you know ... Continue Reading →

His Spirit Brings Life
John 6:63 (KJB) It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
It is the Spirit of God which quickens eternally alive the heart of the regenerated man.
The natural man is eternally weak and wobbly because of sin.
It is God’s Spirit which profits man by restoring his dead and sin filled heart. The spiritually quickened alive person’s flesh will certainly break ... Continue Reading →

Bearing Precious Fruit
John 15:4-5 (KJB) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
A close relationship with The Vine is essential. Both in this world and ... Continue Reading →
Mankind is formed in the womb by the hand of God with a body, soul, and spirit. Mankind is fashioned as a trichotomy, a human being with three distinct parts.
God has always existed as a spirit being who consists of three distinct parts: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Known as the Trinity or “spiritual trio”.
The number three is used in the Bible to illustrate or signify completeness and spiritual wholeness.
There are many sets of “three” found in God’s Word, including ... Continue Reading →

Outward Rituals But No Heart Change
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. (Romans 10:2 KJV)
Paul is specifically speaking about the beliefs of Jewish people in this verse. They were eager about God but were flawed in doctrine. They certainly believed in God but did not possess knowledge of Him in their heart.
The book of James tells us that devils also believe in God but do not possess a ... Continue Reading →
