Overthrown By Strangers
Isaiah 1:7 (KJB) Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
The Prophet Isaiah did not mince words in explaining the condition found at work within the land of Judah. Not only was their nation in deplorable condition, but this current state was the result of the chastening of the Lord.
You see, God cannot and will not allow continual disregard for Him and His ... Continue Reading →

Innate Knowledge Given
John 1:9 (KJB) That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
This verse in the first chapter of the book of John can easily confuse growing Christians. That is until one chooses to compare scripture with scripture to reveal God’s intent, context, and meaning. A wrong understanding is that each person born into this world is automatically handed the light (salvation) of God upon birth.
However, this verse details the fact that God innately makes His presence known and available ... Continue Reading →

A Sharp Crusader
Psalm 149:6 (KJB) Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand.
God does not expect His spiritual family to sit on the sideline of life. Nor does God desire for them to sit on the fences of life. Continual praises, scripture, and marching ahead are to be a child of God’s spiritual crusade as they walk circumspectly, bringing glory to God in this world.
God desires for each of us to sing a litany ... Continue Reading →

Prepared for Battle
Ephesians 6:11 (KJB) Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Battles are inevitable. Spiritual skirmishes are at work all about us. A child of God is given everything that he or she needs to stand tall and secure against God’s nemesis, satan in this world. God never promised His spiritual family was protected from facing battles, but that they could stand victorious in the heat of any fight.
God gives ... Continue Reading →

A Disciplined Army
Joel 2:8 (KJB) Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
The ancient context of this verse is speaking of a time when enemies were invading the ancient land of Israel. Not only that, but this message parallels one of a coming invasion with the fifth trumpet judgment, as was recorded for our consideration in the book of Revelation.
We can compare this marching band of ... Continue Reading →

God Decreed Light to Shine in Darkness
2 Corinthians 4:6 (KJB) For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
This verse of scripture is a beautiful picture of God’s grace and truth. This portrait of eternal light is available for whosoever places faith is placed in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Not only is this promise true, but the eternal ... Continue Reading →

The Absence of Light Creates Darkness
Isaiah 45:7 (KJB) I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
God takes credit for both light and darkness. Does this true statement confuse your thinking? The presence of evil is a natural void of the presence of God. You cannot have light without the presence of darkness or peace without hate working in this world.
I hope you understand that there is nothing cloudy about this statement ... Continue Reading →

I Will Do It
John 14:13 (KJB) And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Whatsoever you ask, I will do. What a promise from God! Knowing this and understanding how it works in God’s terms should make prayer a priority for every child of God. Prayer conveys the power of God. It is the vehicle of God’s power source from God to humanity.
It is essential to understand that no ... Continue Reading →

His Ways are Beyond Imagination
Romans 11:33 (KJB) O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
No man can fathom the greatness and glory of God. God’s power and presence will never be altered by a person, time, or circumstance. His potential is far-reaching and not limited by anything at work in this world.
God has been present since the beginning and has no end or limit to ... Continue Reading →

God is Great
Psalm 8:9 (KJB) O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
This scripture verse, among many others in the entire canon of scripture, tells us about the unique and excellent nature of God. In reading the whole eighth Psalm, a person can discover the perfect and unlimited potential of the nature of God.
Society tells us who we are, what to think, builds our self-esteem, but fails miserably in telling us about God. Humanity naturally wants to be ... Continue Reading →
