A Gentle Eternal Giant
Revelation 17:14 (KJB) These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
A lamb is a gentle creature. It is used here in this scripture verse to point to the tenderness and merciful nature of Jesus Christ. It is an illustration of a meek and milk mannered God who is ... Continue Reading →

Jesus Christ Did Not Balk or Bail
1 Corinthians 15:57 (KJB) But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Eternal victory was made possible only through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. Without His willingness to die for the sins of mankind there would not be victory possible for any man.
Without the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, man would remain unregenerate in his heart and spiritually dead in ... Continue Reading →

Seeking solitude with God
Luke 5:16 (KJB) And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed.
There were times when Jesus Christ sought out a crowd to teach and preach.
Other times Jesus Christ chose to dwell in solitude with God.
Having a heart to heart talk with God was always done on His knees in reverent prayer. While Jesus Christ had occasions of public prayer, He often could be found to draw away from the hustle and bustle of the crowd ... Continue Reading →

Jesus Makes House Calls!
Matthew 8:14 (KJB) And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
There is always discussion among men about whether the Apostle Peter was ever married. This verse clearly gives the answer about his marital status. Though it is not mentioned, potentially Peter had both a wife, and extended family members.
Peter’s mother in law was lying ill and Jesus had come calling to perform a miracle ... Continue Reading →

At Any Moment
Mark 13:7-8 (KJB) And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
Jesus gave mankind a warning about an unraveling of events to come in the ... Continue Reading →

Heed Jesus Christ’s Warning
Matthew 7:15 (KJB) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
This is an important warning to take to heart! Avoid false prophets for outwardly perhaps they seem loving and knowledgeable about things of God, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves in waiting. They desire to send poisoned arrows to strike you in the heart to injure and maim the effectiveness of your spiritual condition toward things ... Continue Reading →

The “Spiritual Oomph” of Jesus
Luke 2:20-21 (KJB) And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them. 21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
These two verses are filled with great “spiritual oomph”!
The shepherds had completed their journey to see ... Continue Reading →
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 KJV)
As we enter into the eve of celebrating the earthly birth of Jesus Christ please take some valuable time to dwell upon the rich and unrelenting supernatural love of God the Father, for without His love of God for us His Son, Jesus Christ would not have been sent giving an opportunity for all ...

Unwrapping the Perpetual Present
Luke 2:11 (KJB) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Today, December 25th is set aside each year to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.
The “unto you” mentioned in this verse, of course, is you and I and every other person who has in the past or does now exist upon this earth. God sent His Son to die as a Savior ... Continue Reading →
