The Trio of Body, Soul, and Spirit

April 7th, 2019

The Trio of Body, Soul, and Spirit

1 Thessalonians 5:23 (KJB) And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

This verse recorded by Paul is spiritually thick and inviting.  Digesting what it reveals, in ancient times and for us today compares to the satisfaction of biting into a thick juicy burger for a beef lover.  It is ...

And All Thy House

And All Thy House

Genesis 7:1 (KJB) And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Noah was a man who faithfully served and trusted God.  Living this kind of “sold-out life” not only affected the spiritual state of his own life but worked miracles in the lives of others about him.  Noah was a billboard for God to those around him, though ...

Each Soul Will Reside in Eternity

Each Soul Will Reside in Eternity

Hebrews 13:2 (KJB) Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Let us never forget that every person we meet in this world has a soul that will reside in eternity.  Whether it be within sweet fellowship with God.  Or found among the flames of Hell is not something we can determine.

The Bible tells us that only God knows the condition of the heart.  Though we can and should ...

Falling into the Ditch

Falling into the Ditch

Matthew 15:12-14 (KJB) Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Just as genuine spiritual children naturally follow God.  A spiritually ...

A New Creature in Christ

A New Creature in Christ

Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul Series

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJB) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

A new life in Christ does not merely mean the addition of Jesus Christ to existing world-based habits, preferences, or tacking Him onto current lifestyle choices.  No, indeed, for you, me, and every spiritually regenerated heart, ...

Fools Spit Out Truth

June 28, 2017

Fools Spit Out Truth

Ephesians 4:18 (KJB)   Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.

Foolish people cannot consider having anything to do with God for they have no spiritual hearing, or vision, or inner knowledge about Him.  They are stuck in a vicious circle of imprudent living in this world.  They cannot make ends meet, find true love, or walk along God’s ...

Pride is Eternally Unhealthy

March 16th, 2017

Pride is Eternally Unhealthy

Galatians 6:3 (KJB)   For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.

Pride at work in the heart displays an attitude of “I am important and everything revolves around me.”

A prideful heart condition stands in stark contrast to a humble and submissive person having a godly heart condition.  A godly heart revolves around God.  Everything is about bringing honor and glory to Him and entertains no thought of self-worth.

Satan ...

Alive in Christ

January 30th, 2017

Alive in Christ

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 that gives life.  It is the Spirit which breathes new life into darkened dead hearts.

Man is born with a dead and unprofitable heart.  A natural heart is not alive until God gives it the spiritual “breath of life.” (Ezekiel 36:26, John 3:5)

Only God can ...

Breaking The Chains of Substance Abuse

 

You are not alone many others before you have shattered addictions to alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, and other intoxicating substances.  Substance abuse involves many different chemicals and methods of abuse including by injection, inhalation, and consumption.  Many of these drugs are highly addictive in nature including cocaine, methamphetamines, heroin, and alcohol.

Drugs are quickly infiltrating the lives of many people, even in lives of others not far from away from my own community.  Do not ever say you ...
