Are You Sincerely Saved?

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.

The Righteousness of Christ

Revelation 19:8 (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.  ...

Follow Christ

1 Corinthians 11:1 (KJB) Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

The Godhead

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 ...

Destroy Evil by Prayer and Fasting

Matthew 17:19-21 (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 ...

The Perfect Peace of God

Matthew 26:63-64 (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 ...

Did God Provide For Or Provide A Sacrifice

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 ...
