We are naturally wicked from birth.

The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. (Psalms 58:3 KJV)

Yes, you and I are wicked from our physical birth.  Nobody can rightly claim to be righteous upon their own natural standing ever since sin was introduced in the Garden of Eden when the serpent beguiled Eve.

That is why a child can lie so innocently or naturally in their tender young age.  Children ...

Are you sitting on the fence?

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4:4 KJV)

There is no proverbial “sitting on the fence” with God.  This world is bifurcated, or divided, since Adam’s fall into two existing camps: light and darkness; one camp exists with God the other is in enmity against the things of ...

Will you crawl to the edge of the limb?

Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. So Mordecai went his way, and ...

Are you a good person or a godly person?

There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness. (Proverbs 30:12 KJV)

There are always those who feel they are good, honest, pure, hardworking, upstanding moral citizens who need no change in their life; especially any change necessitating a Savior.  Those who consider themselves to be upright individuals, according to the world’s standards, often cannot manage to blush or shudder at the filthiness ...

Have you made the right turn unto His narrow path?

Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. (2 Corinthians 7:9-10 KJV)

Paul was at home plate driving a “spiritual homerun” to those listening to ...

Have you made a spiritual U-turn towards the things of God?

Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) (Galatians 1:1 KJV)

Paul was straightway settling any confusion or misinformation that may have reared its ugly head concerning the authority of his apostleship.  Likely this was important because of many who sorely remembered Paul’s many past escapades centered in in enmity and rebellion against the ...

Supernatural strength from God brings victory.

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)

This verse does not say I can do many things, or some things.  It says ALL things can be accomplished operating under the influence of God’s supernatural power.  We can accomplish anything according to His will for our life.  God’s will never operate against His commandments and precepts contained in His Word.

I quit smoking after many years of this unattractive habit.  ...

What thoughts are filling your mind today?

Today, October 31st, many allow thoughts of Halloween to fill their mind up with ghouls, witches, evil, and darkness to freely swirl about.  Many choose to celebrate this holiday with their children, going to parties, and gathering candy while dressed up in a wide range of costumes; from television personalities to likeness of evil characters.  It is a worldly celebration or gala playing with evil and darkness for innocent children and practicing Satanists alike.

For ...

Now know I that the LORD saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. (Psalms 20:6 KJV)

Have you really given much thought about the mighty power of the right hand of God?  Or the supernatural working of His divine hearing that He can hear clearly each and every heartfelt cry and prayer as His people cry ...

Can you see the handiwork of God in nature?

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. (Psalms 19:1 KJV)

The heavens vastly stretch out in the sky above us but do not reveal all the many holy and glorious characteristics of God and His throne in Heavens.  Our finite eyes and minds cannot possibly take in all the wonderful creations contained within the heavens.  We can ...
