1 Corinthians 15:30 (KJB) And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
This is an interesting question the Apostle Paul posed. The context of his asking concerned the daily unrelenting persecution he faced. Why on earth would any person subject themselves to such continual harassment? Especially if this harassment was literally hour upon hour as Paul was inspired to word it.
The answer is simple because Jesus Chris arose from the dead.
Knowing this, that Jesus Christ arose the third day, any child of God can ... Continue Reading →
Psalm 23:1 (KJB) A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In a modern mindset, a person might say that THE LORD as written in this verse of scripture screams as you read it.
Because it is presented for us in all capital letters. The New but informal language rule of the land is that no one resorts to using all capital letters unless they are screaming at another person. This tactic is what is most often used ... Continue Reading →
Psalm 12:6-7 (KJB) The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
To properly understand the message found in this Psalm, one must comprehend the meaning of the words preserve and forever. They do not mean this message will be around for just a little while, or available for some time. The word forever. In ... Continue Reading →
Matthew 12:31-32 (KJB) Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
The first thing to take note of is that in many Bibles, these verses are ... Continue Reading →
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (KJB) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Fornicators, idolaters, effeminate, abusers of themselves, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners are all critical and practical words given of God. We are going to examine a few of these “ancient words” that mankind has chosen to modify into ... Continue Reading →
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJB) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The first thing to note in this verse is that the focus is on being in Christ. To be in Christ is a spiritual state of the heart eager and willing to be under the headship or spiritual leadership of God. This spiritual state of heart is the opposite of many operating in a mode of me, myself, and I and nothing ... Continue Reading →
Acts 8:9-11 (KJB) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.
I want to call to your attention to a word divinely recorded in the above ... Continue Reading →
Acts 17:22 (KJB) Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
Religious and superstitious lie at different ends of the spiritual spectrum.
The Apostle Paul was a man who desired to follow the will and way of God. He was a man who desired to please God, as his life proves. At all personal cost. In doing so, Paul was used greatly of God including penning numerous books of the ... Continue Reading →
John 4:23-24 (KJB) But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Nothing could be more conceited and arrogant than to think that a man could change the very words spoken on this earth by Jesus Christ. But that is exactly what we find with the above verses divinely recorded in ... Continue Reading →
