A Concern, A Call, A Corral, and Compassion for The Sheep
Mark 6:34 (KJB) And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ had crowds of people following His intriguing teaching. The needs of the people were apparent, both physically and spiritually, and Jesus was moved with compassion.
Not only was ... Continue Reading →

Draw All Men
John 12:32 (KJB) And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
This short verse is a great reference to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon Calvary. Just as the serpent was lifted up in the wilderness Jesus Christ would be lifted up.
It agrees perfectly with the message in this verse:
John 3:14-15 (KJB) And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man ... Continue Reading →

The Will of God Always Reaps Eternal Benefits

Going the Extra Mile
John 11:6-8 (KJB) When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was. 7 Then after that saith he to his disciples, Let us go into Judaea again. 8 His disciples say unto him, Master, the Jews of late sought to stone thee; and goest thou thither again?

Jesus Christ Did Not Seek Relief
Matthew 26:53 (KJB) Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?
It is not necessary to get caught up in any numbers game to determine exactly what number a legion of angels involves. All Peter, and us, really need to understand is that Jesus Christ could have called on His Father to send an army of angels to remove this ... Continue Reading →

Aptly Applies to Ahithophel And Judas
Psalm 41:9 (KJB) Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
The first application for this verse is with the setting of this Psalm with King David and Ahithophel. Ahithophel pretended to be one of David’s closest advisors. Yet, in time was proven to be a collaborator working in opposition to the authority of King David.
However, the New Testament circumstance ... Continue Reading →

John 3:17 (KJB) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
God had a purpose for His Only Son since the beginning. He was to be sent to this world not to condemn it, but for delivering the gift of salvation.

The purpose of the law of God ... Continue Reading →

A Surreal Spiritual Account
John 7:33-36 (KJB) Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me. 34 Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come. 35 Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles? 36 What ...

Truth is Perpetually Powerful
Matthew 10:17 (KJB) But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues.
Jesus Christ warned His Jewish audience in the context of this verse that His message will always have naysayers and protractors determined to disparage and change the truth. This fact still rings true today, not only for the Jewish people, but for all believers.
Today it is common for professing believers busy witnessing ... Continue Reading →
