Arrayed in Fine Linen

January 19th, 2019

Arrayed in Fine Linen

Revelation 19:8 (KJB) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Clean, white, crisp, and fresh.

Just think about the moment you pull bed sheets out of the dryer.  Or bring a sun-dried set of sheets in from off the clothesline.  They smell and feel remarkably fresh and clean!  In fact, there is nothing better than going to sleep in ...

A Biblical Prescription for A Woman’s Success

A Biblical Prescription for A Woman’s Success

Titus 2:3-5 (KJB) The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

It is a sad thing ...

The Ultimate Spiritual Goal

July 23rd, 2018

The Ultimate Spiritual Goal

1 Peter 1:16 (KJB) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

God does not wish for your happiness.  No, indeed, He wishes for you to desire to become holy.

There is a world of difference between being happy and being holy.  Happiness relies upon our outward circumstances for ushering in happiness.  Holiness relies upon the supernatural power and presence of God.

Holiness simply relies upon the work of God in our heart.  Holiness lasts ...

June 23rd, 2018

The Beauty of Holiness

1 Chronicles 16:27-30 (KJB) Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place. 28 Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength. 29 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness. 30 Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that ...

Because of His Holiness

April 15th, 2018

Because of His Holiness

1 Peter 1:15-16 (KJB)   But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;  16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Because God is holy is the only reason a man should desire to live a holy life.  The moving motivation for living right, being right, and doing right only comes from having a personal relationship with God.

Without knowing God personally, a man ...

Righteousness Only Comes by God

June 7th, 2017

Righteousness Only Comes by God

Galatians 2:21 (KJB)   I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Paul is trying to clear lingering confusion about mixing law and grace.  Attempting to blend the two together only serves to frustrate the grace of God.  That is precisely why God sent His Only Son to die on Calvary.  His unmerited favor can affect man with His righteousness for the keeping ...

Sinless Perfection

March 30, 2017

Sinless Perfection

Numbers 23:19 (KJB)   God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Balak is speaking in this verse about the righteous and unchanging character of God.  This description rings true even today.  God is perfect and without sin, therefore, He never has sin in His life to repent of ...

Does Your Life Have These Perpetual and Pleasing Ingredients?

October 27th, 2016

Does Your Life Have These Perpetual and Pleasing Ingredients?

Hebrews 12:14 (KJB)   Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

These two ingredients, peace and holiness, are often found to be absent, or at least greatly diminished in the lives of many professing Christians today.

Peace and holiness, or having “spiritual zest,” is a crucial element in living a new spiritual life.  These spiritual components come only through possessing a personal relationship with God.  ...

God naturally opposes satan

God naturally opposes satan

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? (2 Corinthians 6:15 KJV)

What spiritual harmony would God have with satan? God and satan are at extreme odds.  They exist at opposite ends of the spiritual spectrum having nothing in common or separated as far apart is darkness is to light.

There is never any fellowship between light and darkness, or between sin and the holiness of God, or ...

Under the Influence of God

Under the Influence of God

Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations: And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean; And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the LORD hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses. ...
