Calvary- The Forgiveness Factor
Romans 6: 23 (KJB) 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The completed work of Calvary is a precious gift from God. Jesus Christ’s supernatural spiritual work took the sting out of sin and death. God’s gift is two-fold. Jesus Christ ushered in the gift of unmerited favor or kindness and eternal relief from the penalty of sin.
God gave regenerate hearts a perpetual victory over sin and the ... Continue Reading →

Calvary – The Unconditional Love and Redemption

Calvary –A Counterfeit Cross
John 14:6 (KJB) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
God’s Word emphatically declares the only way to an eternal relationship with God is through Jesus Christ.
Yes, sadly, even the precious shed blood sacrifice of Calvary has a spiritual counterfeit at work in this world. It is a darkly inspired effort cleverly designed by satan to dupe gullible people. Satan desires to hijack the natural heart ... Continue Reading →

Calvary –Selfless Worship
Yes, only God is worthy of our worship and honor. Worship is the spiritual practice of giving your very best reverence and value to God. In fact, adoration of God is essential, or vital, in having a genuine personal relationship with God. When one worships God, he desires what God desires, he gives much consideration to godliness and chooses to separate from things of this world, aligning with things holy, righteous, and pure.
Did you know that Genesis 22:5 is the first ... Continue Reading →

Spiritual Goodness Over Sacrifice
Hosea 6:5-6 (KJB) Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth. 6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
The Old Testament was filled with the laws, standards, and the necessity of coming before God and offering a shed blood sacrifice for the presence of sin. Such ... Continue Reading →

Though Jesus Christ spoke in a clear language about the approaching of His death, His message was not understood or received by the crowds or His closest men, then or now. Today ... Continue Reading →

They Lacked Spiritual Clarity
John 2:19-20 (KJB) Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
Jesus Christ was speaking to the Jewish audience about His body. He was the temple which would be destroyed. However, though these people followed Him and were familiar with His teaching, they ... Continue Reading →

Spiritual Conflict Naturally Lies Within Ourselves
Romans 8:3-5 (KJB) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the ...
