Heritage Begins Here
1 Chronicles 1:1 (KJB) Adam, Sheth, Enosh
The book of Chronicles might seem like dry reading without any relevance whatsoever today. However, it is the recorded history of all humanity, beginning with Adam in this short scripture verse.
1 Chronicles 1:4 (KJB) Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Mindset, Motive, and Ministry
John 12:4-6 (KJB) Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, 5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
Judas Iscariot, the one who would soon betray Jesus Christ, was concerned in these verses about this costly perfume wasted rather than sold, ... Continue Reading →

Masters and Servants
Colossians 4:1 (KJB) Masters, give unto your servants that which is just and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.
Please do not be confused with the biblical language found in this scripture verse. Many people are quick to judge what they think the context is and instantly be offended with the “master” and “servant” language as is recorded in this verse. Some will hatefully turn this message from God into a racial issue, but doing so is far from a correct ... Continue Reading →

God warns us over and over again about the coming hour when all souls; dead or alive, will hear and rise to God’s voice. Perhaps this description seems more like a modern-day ... Continue Reading →

Misplaced Trust is Foolish
Psalm 146:3-4 (KJB) Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
It is not abundantly clear who the author of this Psalm is, however, his trust placed in God is evident. Some will say this Psalmist was certainly David, who through many trials, tragedies, and triumphs knew where to find lasting hope and confidence despite his state of ... Continue Reading →

Lust of The Flesh Woes
1 Kings 11:1-2 (KJB) But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; 2 Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
“But king Solomon loved many strange women…” This short phrase tells us a lot ... Continue Reading →
