By The Wayside
Luke 8:12 (KJV) Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
The wayside, I hope you know that this refers to the edge of the beaten-down pathway. It is the common thoroughfare followed by spiritually lost and wayward hearts on this earth. Many, if not all, these folks have heard about God. However, this vital life-saving ... Continue Reading →

Gossip And Evil Speaking
James 4:11-12 (KJV) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
You are skating on thin ice with God if you do ... Continue Reading →

How Can We Sing In A Strange Land?
Psalm 137:2-4 (KJV) We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the LORD’S song in a strange land?
This Psalm was written during the Babylonian captivity by an unknown author inspired by God. Its ... Continue Reading →

Whining And Complaining Is Not The Precedent
Philippians 2:14 (KJV) Do all things without murmurings and disputings.
Throughout this second chapter of Philippians, via the Apostle Paul, God gave us a pattern. The crux of the matter is that we are to do all things without complaining despite any circumstance we find ourselves standing. Whoa, this might seem challenging, or in humanistic thinking, near impossible to accomplish.
However, one must consider is that a child of God can do anything inside ... Continue Reading →

A Haughty Heart Wounds, But Love and Grace Heal
Philippians 2:3 (KJV) Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
I hope you understand that the state of your heart influences your relationship and service for God. It affects the potential for livelihood in wounded and hurting hearts in this world. A person who sees himself as having “arrived.” Or as living in the pinnacle of Christianity while ... Continue Reading →

Heart Intention Matters
1 Corinthians 16:14 (KJV) Let all your things be done with charity.
Indeed, you understand that both the thought and intention of your heart matter much to God. Do you whine and complain when you are helping others in need? Does your lip service to God lack sincere love and devotion? Do your actions, and the application of His truth match the timeless character of God?
Perhaps you are busy serving others only because you think you have ... Continue Reading →

Self-Righteous Or God-Righteous?
Proverbs 16:1-3 (KJV) The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
I hope you know that you cannot do the “God thing” on your terms and timing. Sadly, many souls are trying to learn about God and to ... Continue Reading →

Cannot Be Moved
Hebrews 12:28-29 (KJV) Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.
The future kingdom of God is unmoveable. It is established since the beginning and will remain forever, unlike this earth, which will succumb to fire and destruction at God’s timing. Indeed, God’s kingdom is a perpetual kingdom that has no end. His rule ... Continue Reading →

The Truth always Brings Fierce Opposition
Philippians 1:28 (KJV) And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
Yep, you can count on it. Fierce resistance always arises as the truth about God is spoken. Nothing has changed over the years; in biblical times, hostility is present as facts are revealed. Jesus Christ told us in multiple passages, like in John 16:33, to expect ... Continue Reading →

Do Not Follow The Crowd
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
These scripture verses give us wise counsel concerning the pathway to heaven in this world. Sadly, some well-known individuals will tell you ... Continue Reading →
