Philippians – The Joy of Knowing Christ
Up Close and Personal with the Apostle Paul Series
Philippians 1:20-21 (KJB) According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Never is there any shame ... Continue Reading →

Empty Professions Do Not Personally Involve God
Matthew 7:21 (KJB) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Professing Christ is not the same as genuinely knowing Christ. One leads to a personal relationship with Him and an eternal home in heaven. The other leads to an empty hope and a permanent home among the fires of hell forevermore.
Not ... Continue Reading →

Waxed Strong in Spirit
Luke 1:80 (KJB) And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
This short succinct verse has much to say about the time of maturing in John’s youth. His growing and maturing years were spent in the desert. Not the palace.
The growth of Paul (formerly known as Saul) who mingled with men of law, sprouting forth from the feet of Gamaliel, and on ... Continue Reading →

Called of God
1 Timothy 3:4-5 (KJB) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
It is vital that a man of God, divinely called to pastor a church, first be established his own house with a godly spiritual order according to the precepts and principals found in God’s Word. ... Continue Reading →

Wednesday’s Wisdom From God’s Word
I can Worship God Any Way I Want
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.

Micah 7:6 (KJB) For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.
Family values, tradition, and loyalty are often found to be weak and broken. Many injured relationships are not able to stand the test of time and circumstances found at work in this world.
God’s Word clearly states that relationships will be torn apart with ... Continue Reading →

Sin Remembered No More
Hebrews 10:15-17 (KJB) Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, 16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Continual remembrance of sin is no longer necessary. With the old covenant, ... Continue Reading →

Few Will Find It
Matthew 7:13-14 (KJB) 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: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Just how does a person know for sure he is journeying along the narrow way in eternal fellowship with God?
Or is lost ... Continue Reading →

A Peaceful Countenance
Matthew 5:9 (KJB) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Peace and blessings go hand in hand with having possession of a personal relationship with God.
Without God mankind, will not find lasting peace or blessings. Or will not desire for entertaining peace with others in this world. Not only are children of God eternally blessed but they have an internal desire for peace.
It is fitting that the man and woman of ... Continue Reading →

It is time to grow up!
1 Corinthians 13:11 (KJB) When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Young children are immature by nature.
Adults are expected to grow and mature.
This is true whether you are talking about the natural man or the spiritual man. Maturity is anticipated and expected to surface in the lives of young adults.
Paul ... Continue Reading →
