Preparing and Prophesying About Calvary
Matthew 16:21 (KJB) From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
Though Jesus Christ spoke in a clear language about the approaching of His death, His message was not understood or received by the crowds or His closest men, then or now. Today ... Continue Reading →

No Basis for Self-Righteousness or Individual Merit
Romans 3:27-28 (KJB) Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
There is no room for any level of spiritual smugness in our personal relationship with God. Nor is there any room for building prideful fences and barriers in relating with others. Simply put, pride ... Continue Reading →

And All Thy House
Genesis 7:1 (KJB) And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
Noah was a man who faithfully served and trusted God. Living this kind of “sold-out life” not only affected the spiritual state of his own life but worked miracles in the lives of others about him. Noah was a billboard for God to those around him, though ... Continue Reading →

Many Shall Run to and Fro
Daniel 12:4 (KJB) But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
This verse from the Old Testament points foremost to the Jewish people, God’s own people. While it is true that God’s chosen people have been blinded to Truth for some time, there will be a day coming where their eyes and ... Continue Reading →

God Leaves No Wiggle Room
Matthew 12:30 (KJB) He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
God has painted a unique spiritual pathway for the heart of every professing child of God. His power and presence are brushed upon the palette of nature poised in this world. There is no guesswork involved in choosing to agree with God and walk in His direction as a man sojourns in this world.
This ... Continue Reading →

Foolish Galatians Reprimanded
Galatians 3:1 (KJB) O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
Paul comes straight at obvious spiritual errors of the Galatians armed with the truths of God. Oh, how foolish they were in trying to keep the law, perhaps even making Paul’s heart skip a beat, as he considered their misplaced confidence in such blatantly incorrect doctrine.
Hadn’t they ... Continue Reading →

Life Is Not All About Me, Myself, and I
Philippians 2:20-21 (KJB) For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. 21 For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.
The Apostle Paul made these remarks in dealing with Roman associates who often resorted to taking care of their own needs and feelings rather than noticing the needs of others about them. Anotherwards, they placed their individual needs ahead of the collective ... Continue Reading →

Abraham Stayed Strong in Faith
Romans 4:20 (KJB) He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.
You know the feeling. You hear something on the news or read something posted on a social media platform, and it sounds too good to be true. You scrutinize the fine print or strain to hear every detail as you consider the promise at hand.
Why, because promises are broken all the time in ... Continue Reading →

All Under His Control
Matthew 28:18 (KJB) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Jesus Christ was getting ready to ascend back to His Father in heaven. Before leaving this earth, He spoke candidly to His disciples about the perpetual; spiritual victory which had taken place upon the cross at Calvary. They were probably still a little awestruck at the recent supernatural events which had taken place right ... Continue Reading →
From the Line of Benjamin
Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul
Philippians 3:4-5 (KJB) Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5 Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee.
Indeed, many of you are familiar with the life ... Continue Reading →
