Repent, Remission of Sin, and Be Baptized
Acts 2:38 (KJB) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
There are a lot of doctrinal misconceptions concerning baptism and this verse of scripture, especially when isolated from proper biblical-based context — two things mentioned here in this verse that is vital in receiving God’s gift of life.
The Apostle Peter ... Continue Reading →

The Smoke Of God’s Judgment
Genesis 19:28 (KJB) And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
This verse leaves no question as to what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. Though this event is a part of ancient biblical history, it is relevant for a proper understanding of our times in this world today. Also important to note, God promises He will destroy ... Continue Reading →

Christ At Work In Your Heart
Ephesians 3:17-19 (KJB) That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
“Where does it say that Christ resides in the heart?” Right here in these scripture verses above ... Continue Reading →

Godly Discipline, Correction, and Instruction
Proverbs 3:11-12 (KJB) My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
God chastises His children. But, apart from how this correction looks in this world, His chastisement is a good and necessary thing. A child of God expects to be corrected, instructed, and directed by God for his or her greater good and spiritual state of ... Continue Reading →

Wisdom of David
Psalm 119:98-100 (KJB) Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. 99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. 100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
Some of you may peer into the life of David and see extraordinary wisdom in many of his life events, going from a lowly laboring shepherd to an eventual successful reign as king. You may consider that ... Continue Reading →

He Shall Know
John 7:17 (KJB) If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
“If…” is an essential word in this verse of scripture; the other significant words found here are “he shall know…”
You see, these words tie our serving and obedience to God to knowing and personally applying His will apart from false doctrine, interference from our desires, and unsound reasoning. Comprehending God’s will always place spiritual wisdom ... Continue Reading →

Identify With Christ, Shine Gracefully
2 Corinthians 6:3-4 (KJB) Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: 4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses.
Isn’t it sad that there are so many offensive people living in this world? What is even more tragic is that many proclaiming to be a child of God with their lips fail tremendously in living this claim out in their life. Not only are ... Continue Reading →

This Charge Was Considered Treason
Luke 23:38 (KJB) And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Jesus was formally charged with treason by Pilate. A sign was hung over Him declaring Him KING OF THE JEWS. This declaration came from Jesus and was apart from loyalty to collective political leaning and the military rule of the Roman government. To these men, His claim was absurd.
However, we can know for sure that ... Continue Reading →

Not Otherwise Minded
Galatians 5:10 (KJB) I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
This verse speaks to us two-fold. One that there are otherwise minded teachers and preachers in ancient times and today in this world. Indeed, there will always be those people who introduce a false gospel message. God has made it clear that it is up to us as individuals to discern any ... Continue Reading →

Thus Saith The Lord
Exodus 4:21-23 (KJB) And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go. 22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: 23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and ...
