The Deity Exposed to His Enemies
John 10:30 (KJB) I and my Father are one.
This is a short verse packed with a powerful spiritual punch that Jesus Christ delivered squarely right “smack in the face” to his enemies.
Jesus Christ is speaking in this verse about Himself and His Father who is God. He clearly is identifying Himself as one with God. He is one and the same as God. Jesus Christ and God are one or in unison in ... Continue Reading →

A Greater Tabernacle
Hebrews 9:11 (KJB) But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building.
The Old Testament tabernacle was a temporary tent which stood with the purpose of pointing to a coming perpetual temple. This Old Testament tent was temporary, moveable, and provided a holy place for God to come and dwell. It came with strict instructions ... Continue Reading →

Overcame Him by The Blood of The Lamb!
Revelation 12:11 (KJB) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
A man either loves God and righteousness placing Him in first place in his life or he loves the god of self and evil. There is no in-between, “gray area,” of an affinity for both ends of the spiritual spectrum available.
A man is ... Continue Reading →

This Same Jesus
Acts 1:10-11 (KJB) And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
His ascension into heaven would have been a most glorious sight to witness. Not ... Continue Reading →

Forbid Him Not
Luke 9:49-50 (KJB) And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. 50 And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.
Often a man gets comfy in what he intuitively knows and has been taught. He is often content with breaking God’s love down to a denomination, or a fixed set ... Continue Reading →

Jesus Had Spiritual Growth and Maturity
Luke 2:51-52 (KJB) And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
The Bible does not have a lot to say about the early years of Jesus, but what it does reveal is powerful. His growing years are not chronicled in a plethora ... Continue Reading →

An Ironic Question Perhaps?
John 16:31 (KJB) Jesus answered them, Do ye now believe?
Jesus was speaking to His disciples knowing that they had all seen and heard many proofs to back up His claims of who He was and what was about to happen to Him according to the will of His Father. He stopped to ask them if they now believed.
Certainly, the disciples saw and heard many awe-filled things in their ministry alongside Jesus Christ. They were blessed ... Continue Reading →

Jesus Christ Faced the Same Temptations
Hebrews 2:18 (KJB) For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
It is so easy for a man hounded by temptations in this world to get the idea that his situation or problems are somehow so staggering that not even God can relate to them. Thinking like this is faulty and does not line up with the truths contained in God’s Word.
God tells us ... Continue Reading →

Hindsight Often Presents a Clearer Picture
Matthew 27:54 (KJB) Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
If only a man could spend his time driving backwards on the roads of life seeing situations from his hindsight rather than living in each moment. The results of a choice and the consequences of sin would be so ... Continue Reading →

Rejected by His Own
John 1:10-11 (KJB) He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Sometimes, those who are the closest to us can also serve as some of our harshest critics. Experiencing rejection and ridicule from others is common. In fact, Jesus Christ experienced rejection in His short-lived ministry upon this earth.
He tells us throughout the canon ... Continue Reading →
