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 →

Preparing and Prophesying About Calvary
Matthew 16:21 (KJB) From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
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 ...

All Under His Control
Matthew 28:18 (KJB) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Jesus Christ was getting ready to ascend back to His Father in heaven. Before leaving this earth, He spoke candidly to His disciples about the perpetual; spiritual victory which had taken place upon the cross at Calvary. They were probably still a little awestruck at the recent supernatural events which had taken place right ... Continue Reading →

Your New Identity
Philippians 3:12 (KJB) Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Remember whose you are, where you came from, as well as where you are headed for eternity.
Formerly you and I were both hopeless children who were naturally dead in spirit and choosing to follow the sin and darkness carelessly flowing from the god of ... Continue Reading →

The Will of God Always Reaps Eternal Benefits
John 6:38-40 (KJB) For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which ...

Calvary – The Unconditional Love and Redemption
Revelation 5:9 (KJB) And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.
Let us take a few moments to reflect on this crowd who was singing praises one day and calling for Jesus Christ’s death a few days later. ... Continue Reading →
Calvary – The Tale of Three Criminals
Many people might say there are only two criminals mentioned in the accounting of Calvary.
The truth is the account has three crosses and three criminals. However, only two criminals were crucified that day as punishment for the crimes they had committed. One man hung on a cross placed to the left of Jesus Christ, and the other criminal hung on a cross located to the right of Him.
Jesus Christ, who committed no ... Continue Reading →
Calvary- The Law of The Cross
Romans 10:4 (KJB) For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
The end of the law brought physical death to Jesus Christ on Calvary and paved an eternal pathway to “put on” His eternal holy nature for every man.
Upon first hearing about the cruel and inhuman death of Jesus Christ, it may seem like nothing more than a horrible end to a good and godly life of ... Continue Reading →
