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 righteousness of God always stands in stark contrast to wickedness and evil at work in this world.
The purpose of the law of God ... Continue Reading →

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 →

Jesus Christ Faced Every Temptation
Hebrews 4:15 (KJB) For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
God’s only Son Jesus Christ is the high priest. He was sent by the will of God to come to this world (John 3:16) in the flesh to redeem mankind. Jesus Christ is God and man in the flesh. In fact, He ... Continue Reading →

We are only going to spend a brief amount of time here because Jesus Christ did not spend a great amount of time in His tomb.His disciples did not remain here long upon finding it empty this early morning on the third day.
We will take a ... Continue Reading →

The Proof Is In The Pudding
Matthew 11:16-19 (KJB) But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, 17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they ...

A Spiritual “About Face”
John 6:67-69 (KJB) Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? 68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
During His short earthly ministry, Jesus Christ was used to rejection.
He was accustomed to teaching people the Truth of God and watching many people fall ... Continue Reading →

Rich Blessings Found in Christ
Luke 6:20-23 (KJB) And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name ...

Calvary –The Taxing of His Physical Flesh unto Death
Jesus Christ was a young man, just over thirty years old. Certainly, His age and the time He spent walking during His earthly ministry, leads me to strongly consider His health was likely strong and robust. Further, there is no recorded incidence of any physical issues or health problems in His youth or in His time of ministry on this earth.
Jesus Christ faced intense physical and mental suffering in the day leading ... Continue Reading →
