The Underpinning of Idolatry

The Underpinning of Idolatry

Colossians 3:5-6 (KJB) Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience.

These verses tell us about the roots of idolatry at work in this world.  These world based things are often worshipped over and above cherishing God.  Rather than allowing God’s peace rule and rein in their hearts, many people choose to serve and savor the stuff ...

He Ruleth Over All

He Ruleth Over All

Psalm 103:19 (KJB) The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

Imagine anywhere a man goes, whether it be on this earth or in eternity, God rules.

Not only that, but His power is supernatural, unlimited, or infinite, having no beginning or end.

It can sincerely be stated that every problem on this earth stems from not understanding who God is and what He can and will do in us and through us.  All too often ...

Obvious Answers for Narcissists

Romans 11:33-36 (KJB) O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller? 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Jesus Was in the Boat

Mark 4:38-41 (KJB) And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? 39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? 41 And they ...

By Revelation

Ephesians 3:3-4 (KJB) How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, 4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)

The Apostle Paul was used as an instrument of God to reveal and unravel this mystery.  First, a person must understand that this was not the words of Paul written in this verse, but words were given to him by the inspiration of God to reveal vital truths.  ...

God Called His Name

Exodus 3:4 (KJB) And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.

God called Moses amid a burning bush.  God knew how to get his undivided attention.

God dropped Paul to the ground to get his attention.

God made Sarah laugh in her old age when hearing His promise given through an angel.

Mary and Joseph, Jesus’s earthly parents, ...

Simon Bewitched

Acts 8:9-11 (KJB) But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

This man named Simon was thought to be a sorcerer.  ...

House of Rolls

House of Rolls

Ezra 6:1 (KJB) Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.

I hope you know that the context of this verse is not all about donuts and sugary confections or about homemade buttery dinner buns. 

Indeed, the rolls mentioned in this verse are pointing to an ancient room housing a collection of ancient scrolls on which were recorded God’s words and decrees.  This room was the ...

Contrite Before God

Ezra 9:5-7 (KJB) And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God, 6 And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. 7 Since the days of our fathers ...

Eternal Fondness

Eternal Fondness

Colossians 3:2 (KJB) Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

It is so easy to place rose-colored glasses on your face and see the world as you want it to be, or as you believe it to be, rather than observing this world filtered with the truth of God. A correct viewpoint is only possible through applying the lens of God.

Ouch, that might sting a little, but it is true. God’s viewpoint does make us set up ...
