Have you tasted of God’s righteousness finding it spiritually delicious?

For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. (2 Peter 2:21-22 KJV)

Peter is speaking in ...

God will never forsake His own spiritual family.

But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Thy children shall make haste; thy destroyers and they that made ...

They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight. (Proverbs 11:20 KJV)

A forward heart is an abomination, an outrage, an abysmal circumstance which is hated never tolerated by a holy God.  God is holy and cannot align Himself with or support in any way sin.  God HATES sin.

Many would pipe in today “But God loves ...

Sin no longer rules in the flesh of those who are covered in His blood.

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. (Galatians 2:21 KJV)

Trying to blend the law of God and the grace of God is like trying to combine oil and water. These two things are not cohesive; man either lives by God’s law or he lives spiritually quickened alive and covered in ...

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (Matthew 24:4-5 KJV)
