The Freedom to Do and To Say What Is Right
2 Corinthians 3:17 (KJB) Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
True freedom does not leave a soul in bondage to ideals, handouts, whims, religiosity, or in adhering to civil rules and out of spiritual synchrony or fellowship with God as is legislated by lost hearts in this world. Bondage at work in this world always leads lost souls to ... Continue Reading →
Preserved Words Bible Studies, a Part of First Love Ministries Guest Post Series
In 1Jn. 4:1-3 God tells us that we are not to believe every “spirit” but TRY the “spirits” because MANY “false prophets” are gone out into the world. We are taught that there is a Spirit of God and another “spirit” or “spirits” that are NOT of God. The way to tell the difference is whether they confess that Jesus Christ (of Nazareth and your Bible) is THE ... Continue Reading →

A Truly Wise Man is Inspired by God
Job 32:8-9 (KJB) But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. 9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.
Inside every man is the Spirit of God. In a man who does not personally know God, His Spirit lies dormant, waiting to be awakened unto new spiritual life. In a man who has been quickened alive God’s spiritual essence ... Continue Reading →

Verbally Inspired Words
2 Samuel 23:2 (KJB) The Spirit of the LORD spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.
Do you know that God can choose to place words inside a man’s mouth? David is speaking in this verse about God placing necessary words inside his mouth. Does this sound impossible? Nothing is too hard or beyond what God can do, then or now.
In the case of Elizabeth’s husband Zechariah, God chose to zipper his mouth closed, ... Continue Reading →

An Array of Ministries and Gifts
1 Corinthians 12:4 (KJB) Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
The one and only spiritual source of personal ministry gifts never change. God supplies at least one serviceable gift to every man and woman of God. Some individuals receive more than one ministry gift, and a few receive multiple gifts.
Though the source of these spiritual gifts is always the same, the gifts themselves are diversified. This means that there are ... Continue Reading →

Daniel Found Favor
Daniel 6:1-3 (KJB) It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; 2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage. 3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the ...

His Spirit Brings Life
John 6:63 (KJB) It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
It is the Spirit of God which quickens eternally alive the heart of the regenerated man.
The natural man is eternally weak and wobbly because of sin.
It is God’s Spirit which profits man by restoring his dead and sin filled heart. The spiritually quickened alive person’s flesh will certainly break ... Continue Reading →

John 1:14 (KJB) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
The Word is Jesus Christ. He was supernaturally sent through virgin birth to dwell upon this earth for a time to fulfill the perfect will of God. God sent His Son so that you and I can exist alive forever.
Jesus Christ was sent to reveal ... Continue Reading →

Apply God’s Spirit
1 John 4:1 (KJB) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
There are numerous influencing spirits at work in this world. Only one Spirit is of God. All other “spiritual wannabees” are fickle and fake and always busy trying to influence man to accept things that are in opposition to God rather than what is His Truth and spiritual perfection.
Dark ... Continue Reading →

The Spirit Intercedes for Us
Romans 8:26-27 (KJB) Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
The Spirit of God intercedes for us when we cannot ask ... Continue Reading →
