The Purpose of The Cross
This Easter season I will be sharing from our previously written Calvary series titled UNWRAPPING THE GIFT OF CALVARY.
Simply said, Calvary is about life, no fooling here; it is about a new lasting spiritual life. However, nothing about the gift of eternal life, made possible through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on Calvary, is simple. Jesus Christ, the man and who is God, even shed drops of blood when deep in prayer concerning God’s will for Him at Calvary.
Calvary was undoubtedly not easy ... Continue Reading →

Colossians 2:3 (KJB) In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Who is the “Whom” referred to in this verse? Indeed, you know that in conjunction with the context of the surrounding verses, this “whom” points to the God-head and Jesus Christ, in particular, who is the storehouse of wisdom and knowledge.
God’s brand of understanding is not the same as information, instruction, and data available to study in this world. Any person can choose to go to a higher ... Continue Reading →

Romans 8:29 (KJB) For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
God knew all about you since the beginning of time. The time of your birth and your position in this world does not come as a surprise to God. God knew you before you were born, and He has a particular will for your life even before your birth.
You see, nothing is by accident, chance, or ... Continue Reading →

Shadow of Death
Psalm 23:4 (KJB) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
The shadow of death, what is that? It sounds gruesome and forboding. What would you think if I told you we are all walking in the shadow of death as we sojourn in this wicked world. That is right, both saved and lost souls live in the shadow ... Continue Reading →

Overthrown By Strangers
Isaiah 1:7 (KJB) Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
The Prophet Isaiah did not mince words in explaining the condition found at work within the land of Judah. Not only was their nation in deplorable condition, but this current state was the result of the chastening of the Lord.
You see, God cannot and will not allow continual disregard for Him and His ... Continue Reading →

Innate Knowledge Given
John 1:9 (KJB) That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
This verse in the first chapter of the book of John can easily confuse growing Christians. That is until one chooses to compare scripture with scripture to reveal God’s intent, context, and meaning. A wrong understanding is that each person born into this world is automatically handed the light (salvation) of God upon birth.
However, this verse details the fact that God innately makes His presence known and available ... Continue Reading →

The Underpinning of Idolatry
Colossians 3:5-6 (KJB) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.
These verses tell us about the roots of idolatry at work in this world. These world based things are often worshipped over and above cherishing God. Rather than allowing God’s peace rule and rein in their hearts, many people choose to serve and savor the stuff ... Continue Reading →

In That Day
Revelation 21:4 (KJB) And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
This wonderful promise about our future in sweet fellowship with God is one that many hearts focus on when facing heartbreaking trials and tribulations in this world. It tells us that God will wipe the tears from off our face Himself. Not only that but ... Continue Reading →

Luke 22:41-42 (KJB) And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
Jesus Christ sought out the will of His Father in heartfelt, humble prayer on His knees. He pursued communication with His Father away from His followers and disciples so that He could be in prayerful one on one communion with Him.
Jesus Christ was open, truthful, ... Continue Reading →

God Offers Simple Soundness
2 Timothy 1:7 (KJB) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
It is not big news that some in this world attempt to make a living by trying to alter the state of the mind and body.
“What, you might say- What do you mean?”
Mind control is big business, but is nothing more than an attempt to maneuver another person into doing, saying, or ... Continue Reading →
