A Mark of Ownership

Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Perhaps nothing has been more speculated than about this mark.  Some say it will be a physical mark like cattle branding ...

Ears Ringing With Disaster

2 Kings 21:10-12 (KJV) And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying, Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such ...

God’s Timing Is Always Perfect

2 Peter 3:9 (KJV) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Perhaps on days when it seems God should be rounding the corner and sliding into home plate for accompanying His spiritual family to their eternal home, we must remind ourselves that God’s timing is always right.  Though it often seems ...

Destroy The Seed Royal

2 Kings 11:1-3 (KJV) And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal. But Jehosheba, the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king’s sons which were slain; and they hid him, even him and his nurse, in the bedchamber from Athaliah, so that he was not slain.

No Profit In Idolatry

No Profit In Idolatry

Romans 6:21 (KJV) What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

God sees the big picture as humanity only sees what is right in front of him and is blind to what lurks right around the corners of life.  In other words, God sees the beginning from the end, and for that reason, it is essential that humanity place trust in God rather ...

Worshipping Creation rather Than The Creator

November 12, 2021

Worshipping Creation rather Than The Creator

Romans 1:25 (KJV) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

This earth has many idols, and the practice of worshipping anything other than God is a serious spiritual matter, an offense to God.  Adoring anything other than God is a deep pit that many souls fall into as they live on this earth.  It is easy ...

A Perfect G.P.S.

November 09, 2021

A Perfect G.P.S.

Psalm 37:31 (KJV) The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

It is common for many of us to slide into our vehicle and drive away confident that we will arrive at our intended destination on time and without any issues.  Why?  Because many have a G.P.S. for direction as they travel the highways and byways in this world.  A global positioning system directs numerous vehicles on the freeways and ...

Mature in Christ

2 Peter 3:18 (KJV) But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

God did not want His spiritual best for us just to let us sit and rot on this wicked earth.  No, God desires, beyond spiritual regeneration, that each saved soul matures in His Spirit.  In other words, a saved soul is not just to become a pew warmer ...

Not At Ease In This World

Not At Ease In This World

Amos 6:1 (KJV) Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!

These verses speak of living at ease in this world.  Contextually it points to the ancient cities of Jerusalem and Samaria.  Neither then nor today should any regenerated soul live at ease in any location in this wicked world.  Indeed, folks ...

Nothing Less Than Our Best

1 Samuel 12:24-25 (KJV) Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you. But if ye shall still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed, both ye and your king.

These verses give us direction in serving and savoring God.  It tells us to serve Him with our whole heart.  This directive does not imply serving God when we feel like it, ...
