1 Corinthians 1:18
(KJB) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but
unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
Are we saved, or are we being saved? This difference in wording is as opposing as
apples are to oranges or as night is to daytime. The two spiritual camps rest at opposing ends
of the spiritual spectrum. A saved heart
enjoys sweet eternal fellowship with God while lost hearts are far removed from
Him; both now and forevermore.

(KJB) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean
and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
The pure nature of Christ is on display for our understanding and our application in this verse. This biblically based illustration of Christ’s righteous nature is portrayed for us by the mention of fine white linen, crisp, clean, unspoiled, unadulterated. These words paint for us an uncorrupted picture of His unmarred character and righteousness. ... Continue Reading →
1 Corinthians 11:1
(KJB) Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.
Follow the example of Christ.

Acts 17:29 (KJB) Forasmuch
then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is
like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
The Godhead, as was recorded in this verse, directly points exclusively
to the triune God; The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. It can also be referred to as the Trinity in
world-based terminology, but God used the term the Godhead in this verse and others. In honoring and revering ... Continue Reading →
(KJB) Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast
him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for
verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall
say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and
nothing shall be impossible unto you. 21 Howbeit this kind goeth not
out but by prayer and fasting.
These verses above are significant for each ... Continue Reading →
(KJB) But Jesus held his peace. And
the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God,
that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God. 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou
hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye
see the Son of man sitting
on the right hand of power,
and coming in the clouds of heaven.
It has been said silence can be deadly. Maybe so, but sometimes silence can be
golden. In ... Continue Reading →
Genesis 22:8 (KJB) And Abraham
said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt
offering: so they went both of them together.
The ancient Patriarch Abraham was speaking to his son Isaac in
this eighth verse of chapter twenty of
Genesis. Abraham had obediently
brought his only son to a mountain top as directed by God to offer him as a
sacrifice unto God. Abraham was willing
to sacrifice his son; however, this verse was for the purpose of prophetically
speaking of God sending His Only ... Continue Reading →
