Like Spilt Water
2 Samuel 14:14 (KJV) For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him.
This scripture is a unique verse about death that considers the brevity of life like water spilled on the ground, or death that comes abruptly and not expected. Here this verse is recorded about the ... Continue Reading →

Live Through Him
1 John 4:9 (KJV) In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
I hope you understand that eternal life is manifested through the finished spiritual work of God. Eternal life is never made possible through Your work or mine. The reality is that no person can stand on his own two feet. Left to ourself, a man will ... Continue Reading →

From Sinner to Eternal Victor
Romans 6:23 (KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Any sincere child of God goes from being an inherent sinner to being a perpetual winner by accepting the finished work of God at Calvary. Or, in other words, moved from the throes of death to lasting life. These spiritual changes make any life never the same as it was from natural ... Continue Reading →

Matthew 17:19-20 (KJV) Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Faith is something a person either has a little or has a ... Continue Reading →

Above Any Opinion of This World
John 1:14 (KJV) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
Jesus Christ is out of, or above the spiritual nature of this world. Yet He was sent by God from heaven to dwell among humanity on this earth. Not only that, but Jesus Christ fulfilled the will of God in dying ... Continue Reading →

Consider The Latter End
Deuteronomy 32:27-30 (KJV) Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, ... Continue Reading →

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV) In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
As I sit and meditate on this seemingly simple verse, I realize two things, one that I do not have as much a softened heart, as does Paul, and second, this verse is short, but chock full of truth.
Here is a man, the Apostle Paul, who could find peace and joy in any and every situation. Boy, ... Continue Reading →

There Am I
Matthew 18:20 (KJV) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Jesus’s message is very clear for us in this verse. Where two or three people gather in the name of Jesus Christ, He is with them. Now, you will find that some people tie this statement directly to the church or even a building housing a church. However, that is not the correct message.
Indeed you ... Continue Reading →

Judah’s Coming Judgment
Isaiah 5:13-14 (KJV) Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.
These pointed verses from the Bible book of Isaiah declare that certain judgment is coming for Judah. However, many of these ... Continue Reading →

Ephesians 5:15-17 (KJV) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
It is not enough to “give lip service” to God, attend church, be an ethical and moral person, and speak kindly of God. Each sincere child of God both desires and implements God’s direction and wisdom to will and work in ... Continue Reading →
