Luke 2:10-11 (KJV) And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Mary was about to give birth to her son, baby Jesus Christ. In modern terms, giving birth is both natural and routine. It brings great joy to a couple, only possible when ... Continue Reading →

Joseph, Fear Not
Matthew 1:18-20 (KJV) Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in ... Continue Reading →

Today is the first day of December. This means the holiday season is fast approaching. It is time set aside since the first century for remembering the virgin birth of Christ. It is a time of faith ... Continue Reading →

Jesus Silences the Hypocrites
John 8:7 (KJV) So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
These verses come from one of my favorite accounts God inspired for John to record in His Word. The context of this verse is that a group of people came to Jesus to report dodgy behavior concerning a promiscuous woman. Regrettably, this woman was ... Continue Reading →

A House of Prayer
Matthew 21:12-13 (KJV) And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
There is some controversy among biblical scholars as to the reason Jesus overturned ... Continue Reading →

The Devil Pressures Us Away From God’s Green Pasture
Psalm 23:2 (KJV) He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
I think about the tremendous pressure that a deep diver goes through to descend into the depths, and as he rises to the surface, the pressures change again. Such incredible force met in the wrong timing can lead any diver to face the bends. This condition is a severe health complication that ... Continue Reading →

A Mark of Ownership
Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Perhaps nothing has been more speculated than about this mark. Some say it will be a physical mark like cattle branding ... Continue Reading →

Happy Thanksgiving 2021, Praise God; we have so many blessings to be thankful for every day!
Ears Ringing With Disaster
2 Kings 21:10-12 (KJV) And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying, Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such ...

God Wants every Soul To Hear and Receive
1 Timothy 2:4 (KJV) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
This succinct verse provides us two valuable lessons. The first is that God desires all people to hear His saving knowledge and for them to receive His truth. All means all, and knowing this refutes any messenger who claims God only wants some people to listen and accept His salvation message. ... Continue Reading →

The Truth Is Shocking
Romans 3:23 (KJV) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
For all you “do-gooders” out there, how do you account for this “to the point” verse? This scripture cuts to the heart of the matter. No matter how good we might think we are or imply the things we do are essential, pleasing, and acceptable to God, none of our doing can make it beyond the truth-filled message of this pointed ...
