Are you living foolishly despising authority and rules; or are you spiritually prudent; open to godly guidelines and holy commandments?

A fool despiseth his father’s instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent. (Proverbs 15:5 KJV)

Godly parents don’t always produce Godly children but man should never give up trying to set an example before them of godliness.  Every child is a new adventure as each child’s personal response to God is as different as night and day.  Some will ...

Eve: The First Wife and Mother

Eve was the first female, first wife, and first mother of Cain, Abel, and Seth. She is our first example of a woman created by the hand of God.  God created her by piercing the side of Adam the first man created upon this earth.  Woman was taken from man and given a specific role on this earth.  Women are to be a helpmeet for their husband to assist him in meeting the will of God upon this ...

Do you follow after quirky traditions of man or the stability of a relationship with God?

A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. (James 1:8 KJV)

There are many unsettled people in this world; even those individuals who profess to having a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  Being unsettled, wavering, uncertain, or vacillating sitting on the fence between worldly ways and the way of God are characteristics of a life being lived according to the ...

God has known you since the beginning

Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all ...

Our Standing In Christ

God sees man who is quickened alive spiritually as covered in the blood Jesus Christ shed upon the cross for all sin.  He sees man who has been quickened alive as perfect and pure from His holy viewpoint in the Heavens:

Praise to God who does not see the stain of our sin but only the blood of Christ covering us or atoning for our sin making us as white as snow.  David spoke of this in Psalm fifty one ...

Mankind can take no credit for any abilities in his spiritual life for they are of God.

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; (2 Corinthians 3:5 KJV)

Mankind is insufficient in his own natural darkened state having nothing in his natural self to glory about; apart from inviting the presence of God to live and dwell inside Him accepting God’s gift of great mercy through faith ...

Are you offering sweet smelling worship unto God or derision and worthless adoration?

To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? (Isaiah 1:11-12 KJV)

Hitting Spiritual Rock Bottom

God cannot work in our lives until we see our own lowly spiritual estate or position in life.  It requires hitting spiritual rock bottom and seeing a need for His presence and power at work in our life.  Mankind often chooses to operate according to self-will rather than God’s will becoming stoically entrenched in our own inflated  high opinion with some even go as far as feeling God is lucky to have them living upon this earth!

This ...

Do you have a healthy spiritual dose of God’s strength and abilities dwelling within you as you sojourn upon this earth?

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire. (Hebrews 12:28-29 KJV)

“A kingdom which cannot be moved…” This speaks of a kingdom that is thoroughly established or entrenched; not blown over by errant winds and passing ...

You will reap what you sow upon the earth.

He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (Matthew 12:30 KJV)

This scripture verse is short and precise in its inspired message.  God does not have a proverbial fence upon this earth that we can relax and rest upon, or go back and forth between choosing His way and the way of the god of this world.  God freely offers all ...
