2 Thessalonians 2:11 (KJB) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
A sin-filled heart opposes God, and for any person who chooses to continually reject His truth, God sends strong delusions to cloud and complicate his or her mind in making it impossible for a lost and disobedient person to comprehend Truth.
“This” mentioned in the above verse alludes to the purpose or reason for God choosing to reject some people. Indeed, any ... Continue Reading →

Separated from The Penalty of Sin
Romans 5:1-2 (KJB) Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
A sincere child of God has been saved through faith in the finished spiritual work of Christ and spared from the natural penalty of death from sin. The price of sin is ... Continue Reading →

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 ... Continue Reading →

Out of Fellowship with God
Genesis 3:8 (KJB) And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
This day was different.
God was walking in the garden alone. He was there, but they were no longer walking with Him.
Adam and Eve ordinarily walked in sweet fellowship with God. However, they were ... Continue Reading →

A Sweet Savor of Christ
2 Corinthians 2:15-16 (KJB) For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
What kind of “spiritual scent” does your life represent to God? There are only two fragrances available: The odor of death or ... Continue Reading →

Ignorance Will Usher in Humiliation
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (Mark 8:38 KJV)
People who are too embarrassed to acknowledge and proclaim the Truth about God while alive in this world will face eternal humiliation from God one day. God is always willing to accept ... Continue Reading →

Sin Hampers Your Relationship with God
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. (Isaiah 59:2 KJV)
God in His infinite perfection and righteousness cannot have anything to do with sin.
Sinning after salvation is like placing a stop sign or period upon God’s narrow pathway. Unrepentant sin hinders our personal fellowship with God. It is like a clogged artery or having a stopped up ... Continue Reading →

Are You Heading In God’s Direction?
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV)
A daily walk in spiritual fellowship with God is more about the direction a person is headed rather than striving to make each and every decision be biblically correct. Not one person this side of heaven will shoot one hundred percent at being biblically ... Continue Reading →
Man is alienated from God from his birth.
The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. (Psalm 58:3 KJV) Continue Reading →
This blunt scripture bears the truth about a schism or ravine between the holiness of God and the darkness of natural man. It woefully describes every single person born on this earth. Not one person is naturally born in fellowship with God. Man is born with a dark devilish nature living ...
Do you keep your heart free of sin and spiritual debris?
If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me: (Psalm 66:18 KJV)
Regarding sin in our heart is to know and understand that sin is present in our heart and do nothing about getting rid of it. It is to recognize sin but allow it to remain inside of us, rather than spitting it out with godly repulsion as we humbly agree with the nature ... Continue Reading →
