The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to ...

The Ultimate Spiritual Goal
1 Peter 1:16 (KJB) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
God does not wish for your happiness. No, indeed, He wishes for you to desire to become holy.
There is a world of difference between being happy and being holy. Happiness relies upon our outward circumstances for ushering in happiness. Holiness relies upon the supernatural power and presence of God.
Holiness simply relies upon the work of God in our heart. Holiness lasts ... Continue Reading →

Empty Professions Do Not Personally Involve God
Matthew 7:21 (KJB) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Professing Christ is not the same as genuinely knowing Christ. One leads to a personal relationship with Him and an eternal home in heaven. The other leads to an empty hope and a permanent home among the fires of hell forevermore.
Not ... Continue Reading →

The Will of God Always Reaps Eternal Benefits
John 6:38-40 (KJB) For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which ...

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 →

The Leadership Gathered
Matthew 26:3 (KJB) Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas.
This verse describes an ancient “meeting of the minds.” This gathering was a conglomeration of minds led instinctively by dark and evil leaning hearts. These men were spiritually closed to things of God and open wide for following the darkness of the god of this world.
The chief priests, ... Continue Reading →

God Changes Lives
John 4:28-29 (KJB) The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men, 29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
This woman was so excited to tell others about this extraordinary man she had just met! So thrilled in fact, that she left her water pot sit, and hurriedly ran off to the city to tell others ... Continue Reading →
