Feast, Fun, Fellowship
John 7:37-38 (KJB) In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Do Not Frustrate God’s Grace
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.
How can a person frustrate the grace of God? Well, for starters a person must understand the manner and magnitude of the grace of God. His grace is greater than any sin. If His grace were not greater than it would not have cost God or His Son Jesus Christ anything ... Continue Reading →

Excuse After Excuse
Luke 14:17-19 (KJB) And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to ...

An Infamous Convict
Matthew 27:16 (KJB) And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
Just what exactly makes a prisoner notable?
Luke 23:18-19 Luke minced no words in calling Barabbas a murder!
John 18:40 John called Barabbas a robber.
Mark 15:7 Mark accused Barabbas of plotting against Rome.
It seems this man was mentioned in all the gospels and each author penned different crimes he committed. Barabbas was not a low-level criminal but one who seemed to have an ongoing history of ... Continue Reading →

The Source and Certainty of Scripture
2 Peter 1:19-21 (KJB) We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but ...

They Lacked Spiritual Clarity
John 2:19-20 (KJB) Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
Jesus Christ was speaking to the Jewish audience about His body. He was the temple which would be destroyed. However, though these people followed Him and were familiar with His teaching, they ... Continue Reading →

Only One Name is Forever Famed
Philippians 2:9-11 (KJB) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Without the Resurrection, Trusting in God is Pointless
1 Corinthians 15:32 (KJB) If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.
The Apostle Paul was always moved to be articulate, or swinging for the fence when recording the inspired Word of God. This scripture verse is certainly a “Spiritual Home Run.” It begs each of us to ... Continue Reading →

God Spake in Time Past
Hebrews 1:1-2 (KJB) God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.
Scripture is “God-breathed. The very words found in scripture were divinely spoken of God. Not only that but His words were divinely recorded by scribes for ... Continue Reading →
Blinded by The Light
Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul Series
Hebrews 9:16 (KJB) For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
It thrills my heart to read these particular New Testament passages as is found in Hebrews 9:15-23, including a pinnacle verse which points to the substitutionary death of Christ and the necessity of His shed blood as was divinely recorded by the Apostle Paul.
First, we ... Continue Reading →
