So I work…

Is there any day of the week you would choose not to be healed and made whole? Likewise, is there any day of the week that you would refuse a blessing of health and wholeness to anyone? “And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these thingsContinue reading “So I work…”

Are You Jealous?

Shocking—although it should not be so. I thought I would do a simple study on the word jealous. I should have guessed that I was being set up for something really amazing. My initial mild interest in studying the term for two reasons abruptly changed. I can just imagine the heavenly interest in my immediateContinue reading “Are You Jealous?”

Why will you die?

Christ is coming! He wants us to be ready to receive the crown of eternal life He has for the faithful. If we desire to be judged ”the faithful,” then in the name of His Son Jesus, we must simply ask Him to make us “the faithful.” Then we must trustingly believe that He hearsContinue reading “Why will you die?”

Handling the Hurt

In Matthew 5:44, Jesus reveals what to do when people hurt you. Pray for them. Release them to God. Entrust your well-being to Him, who rightfully measures vengeance and saves the repentant. When they accuse you, pray for them. When they insult you, pray for them. When you find they have used you, pray forContinue reading “Handling the Hurt”

Forgiveness Granted, but Reconciliation?

In all relationships, as in marriage, including our marriage to Christ, forgiveness may be granted. Yet, without true repentance, there can be no reconciliation. While God is always ready to forgive, God requires true repentance for there to be peace between Him and the guilty: at-one-ment. There must be godly sorrow for sin—not sorrow forContinue reading “Forgiveness Granted, but Reconciliation?”

Love Heals

Healing begins with putting your faith in the power of God’s love for you. Go ahead. Test it. Try all the treatments you want. But until you add to your regimen that special ingredient—the prayer of faith—healing will not be complete. Instead, disease can stick around, even when symptoms have seemed to disappear only toContinue reading “Love Heals”

Will you choose to be made whole?

God created the best food for our health, maintaining health in mind, body and life, that we prosper and be in health just as our soul prospers (3 John 1:2). God made food (nuts, grains, fruits, vegetables, herbs) to be medicine for our physical bodies. He made His Word to be our spiritual medicine. (ReadContinue reading “Will you choose to be made whole?”

Truth in love reaches the heart…

Some say, “Christ is in every thing.” This is so not true. This is one of Satan’s lies to deceive the masses. God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. God made specific distinctions, separating light from darkness both physically and spiritually: clean from unclean, godly from ungodly, etc. He did notContinue reading “Truth in love reaches the heart…”

We must be overcomers

We must overcome sin, which is the transgression of God’s Law. We must overcome as Christ overcame. How? By faith, God’s grace (Power). We are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). Our faith in the power of God to deliver us from sin becomes our salvation. It is a gift to anyone who willContinue reading “We must be overcomers”

The Remnant Are Never AWOL

All you who profess to be God’s remnant: What are you doing? Why leave the wall? Where, when, how else can you sound the warning? Are you preaching and teaching the gospel in your words and deeds? Does your life daily proclaim the Three Angels’ Messages of Revelation 14:6-12? When you do, it is notContinue reading “The Remnant Are Never AWOL”

Our walk, living is worship

Our walk, the way we live, is worship. But the question is this: Who are we worshiping? We worship the Creator God, our Heavenly Father, when our walk is in obedience to the Word of God: the Holy Bible. When we love God supremely and love one another as we love ourselves, we show ourContinue reading “Our walk, living is worship”

Don’t get it twisted!

It is not about being saved by works. No true Bible-based Christian believes that. There is no such process for salvation. No one can gain Heaven simply by human effort. Salvation is a gift from God that may be accepted or refused. It is deliverance from sin. It is being saved from the wages ofContinue reading “Don’t get it twisted!”

God’s Salvation: What does it look like in the life?

God’s salvation means deliverance from sin. The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. It is the power of God to deliver us from the power of sin. Sin is the transgression of the law of God, which ends in death. Sadly, many fail to realize that they are choosing to yield to SatanContinue reading “God’s Salvation: What does it look like in the life?”

When you do not know…

Ask! When you do not know God, go to God in prayer. Give your whole self to Him. Exercise your faith when praying to God. Trust that when you ask Him to deliver you from sin in the name of Jesus, He will do it. When you pray for forgiveness, believe He will forgive you.Continue reading “When you do not know…”

I’m not talking out of the side of my neck!

First off, I am speaking to those who profess to believe in Jesus the Son of God and God the Father. When God’s Power (via the Holy Spirit) moves on our behalf and delivers us from sin, and then we turn backward and return to that sin, we should expect the worst. The consequence weContinue reading “I’m not talking out of the side of my neck!”

Must you wait until you’re thirty to be baptized?

Christ was thirty years old when He was baptized. Since He is our example in all things, why are we baptizing children and babes? Where in the Word were young children and babes simply baptized? Nowhere! Christ commands us:“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and ofContinue reading “Must you wait until you’re thirty to be baptized?”

Being transformed by the renewing of our mind

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. KJV—Romans 12:2 Let us meditate upon the Word as we are learning, going through the process of being born again, as we areContinue reading “Being transformed by the renewing of our mind”

I am reminded…

God reminded me what I am. He reminded me whose I am. He reminded me what I am to focus on. I am to give everything to Him in prayer. He is to be the One taking up residence in my heart. My thoughts are to be such that I can involve Him in themContinue reading “I am reminded…”

Time is almost up!

Time is winding down or up, whichever way you prefer to say it. Probation is quickly closing, moment by moment. The probation of some ended at death. Some are still alive, but their probation has closed. For others, their probation will soon close. I am praying all that can be saved, will be saved. ButContinue reading “Time is almost up!”

Blessed and Highly Favored: Who?

Those who fear God are those who bless the LORD and in turn are blessed by Him. “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name” (Psalm 103:1). Anyone who chooses to live by every word of God through faith (grace of God), be encouraged. Look up. GodContinue reading “Blessed and Highly Favored: Who?”

Ruthless!

The ruthless disregard God. They disregard His Word. Yet, they still proclaim to be His and even saved of Him. Yes. The ruthless profess and proclaim to be God’s, while choosing to deny Him daily in their very lives. Miriam-Webster defines ruthless as having no pity: merciless, cruel, such as a ruthless tyrant. One withoutContinue reading “Ruthless!”

Hunters Weepers, Finders Keepers

Who hasn’t heard Let the man chase you! Men are hunters, let them hunt. So men are groomed. The Bible says, “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, . . . Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?“Continue reading “Hunters Weepers, Finders Keepers”

More Than Just a Day

Keeping the Sabbath holy, according to God’s commandment, requires a spiritual heart transplant. That means being born again. Being born again must involve thorough repentance and conversion. That means knowing that you did wrong, making the necessary efforts to rectify the wrong, and living so that you do not repeat the wrong. Yes. That typicallyContinue reading “More Than Just a Day”

The Righteous, Saints: Who are they?

During one church service, the speaker asked the righteous to identify themselves with a show of hands. Fewer than five in a congregation of at least 1500 dared to raise their hands. In an “Aha! I tricked you!” tone, the speaker followed up with words that actually congratulated those whose hand remained down and undoubtedlyContinue reading “The Righteous, Saints: Who are they?”

Free or Bond: What Are You?

Galatians 4:16-17 KJV[16] Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?[17] They zealously affect you, but not well; yea, they would exclude you, that ye might affect them. [18] But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.Continue reading “Free or Bond: What Are You?”

The Wise Don’t, Can’t Sell

Prayerfully read Matthew 25:6-13 (King James Version). 6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.Continue reading “The Wise Don’t, Can’t Sell”

Professors of the Faith

Jeremiah 16:1-21 KJV[1] The word of the Lord came also unto me, saying, [2] Thou shalt not take thee a wife, neither shalt thou have sons or daughters in this place. [3] For thus saith the Lord concerning the sons and concerning the daughters that are born in this place, and concerning their mothers thatContinue reading “Professors of the Faith”
