The Truth is Pure and Powerful
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. (Titus 3:9 KJB)
Paul was warning a young man named Titus about getting caught up in zealous questions and arguments concerning the law of God. Nothing good could come of it for God’s law was already established and known. Jesus Christ had already been born, died, and was resurrected on this earth. The law was ... Continue Reading →
Man is often his own worst enemy.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: (Revelation 3:17 KJV)
Mankind is boastful and naturally proud, according to the darkened nature of his heart from birth. Man likes to speak out about his own ability to provide for himself. He is naturally self-reliant and resourceful, without considering all things have ... Continue Reading →
God’s style is humble and unassuming not forceful, prideful, and pretentious.
And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. (Mark 10:44-45 KJV)
In Jesus’s day, as is the case as well today, many earthly rulers set themselves up to be rulers of all despising or ignoring any power other than their ... Continue Reading →
God will lift you up for His glory and honor.
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. (Matthew 23:12 KJV)
God’s order of exaltation is drastically different than that of this world. Many people of this world are busy lifting up themselves along with a heaping dose of pride and vain self-glory. This is certain spiritual suicide when regarded in context with God’s view of sin and the wages of ... Continue Reading →
Allow God to do all the promoting.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: (1 Peter 5:6 KJV)
Humbling ourselves unto God is to submit to His will for our life. It is to allow Him to be in the driver’s seat as we sit contentedly in peace in the passenger seat, allowing Him to steer us through mazes and obstacles along the narrow pathway upon this earth.
Allowing God to ... Continue Reading →

Are you living in tune to the dark forces or living in the light of eternity?
And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any ... Continue Reading →
Are you wallowing in pride with god or seeking God and righteousness?
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. (Psalms 10:4 KJV)
Pride closes spiritual doors; slamming them closed tight. The matter of pride is in direct conflict or opposition to humility and the spiritual things of God. Those who operate in pride are at home and comfortable in the darkness of this evil world; enjoying the ... Continue Reading →
This verse from the book of John clearly indicates there is such a thing as righteous judgment. Often we hear remarks made such as “judge not lest you be judged, or “take the own mote out of your eye first.” These remarks come from good well-meaning individuals who are loosely quoting scripture often out of biblical context, not always regarding proper circumstances and intent Jesus had for judging with righteous judgment.
Righteous judgment does not take into account appearance ... Continue Reading →
