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…”

Marriage Reform: It’s Time

Nearly all (if not all) marriages pale in comparison to what they were intended. In fact, it is said, “There is not one marriage in one hundred that results happily, bearing the sanction of God and placing the parties in a position better to glorify him. The evil consequences of ill-marriages are numberless.” Ideally, marriage is meant toContinue reading “Marriage Reform: It’s Time”

The change must come: Restored

Are we married to Christ? Does the marriage need to be restored? Restoration in the marriage relationship to God will restore the single soul, as well as the couple—male and female—joined in marriage by God. Our restoration by the working power, strength, and indwelling of the Holy Spirit is a true documentary of the soulContinue reading “The change must come: Restored”

The Governor and His Brother’s Wife: What JTB Knew

John the Baptist sometimes is painted as an uncompromising and uncompassionate, fire-spitting preacher who judged and publicized the sins of church and civil leaders. Maybe it comes off that way, because it was rare to hear anyone boldly address the sins of church and state leaders in similar fashion as the masses—and with good reason.Continue reading “The Governor and His Brother’s Wife: What JTB Knew”

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?”

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”

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?”

The Seventh Day

The seventh day of the week (now known as Saturday) is the holy Sabbath of God. It is the Lord’s Day. Matthew 12:6-8 KJV[6] But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple. [7] But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice,Continue reading “The Seventh Day”

Moment of Marriage

I wanted to know; so I asked God. In all of the many marriages listed in Scripture, why is there not one instance (or is there?) where a couple is shown exchanging vows? Interestingly, it was at a marriage that the first miracle of Jesus ever happened, as recorded in the Canon. John 2, describesContinue reading “Moment of Marriage”

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”

Did you know? Have you heard?

Malachi 2:11-16 KJV[11] Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the Lord which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. [12] The Lord will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, outContinue reading “Did you know? Have you heard?”

Marriage 100

For now, let’s just stay on the surface. This is just the surface. Let’s have a look at marriage. Let’s see it as God and His Church. It is represented in the marriage of God with man and woman. Adultery against God—in both the spiritual and physical—begins in the mind. What mankind does against hisContinue reading “Marriage 100”

Joseph and Mary: Were They Married?

I was always a bit bothered (actually, more than a bit bothered) by the commonly understood interpretation of Matthew 1:18-20, and Luke 2:4-7. It was, and perhaps still is, taught that Mary and Joseph were only engaged during this period. They were not actually married. In fact, I was told that they were somewhere inContinue reading “Joseph and Mary: Were They Married?”

Your Own Husband!

In the beginning God famously began His creative phases with one small but mighty divinely empowered word: Let. Count the word: 12 times in Genesis 1. Similarly, the Holy Spirit moved upon the Apostle Paul (according to 2 Peter 1:20, 21) to speak the very same command when he spoke of one’s lifetime companion inContinue reading “Your Own Husband!”

Alone

Images immediately emerge that describe the state of singlehood and solitary confinement, but especially since 2020, a quarantine. Yet neither of these necessarily fully describes what God meant when He said, “It is not good that the man should be alone, I will make an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18 KJV). You see, withinContinue reading “Alone”

All About Choices

In all our daily living, who are we worshiping (serving), really? Are we measuring all and everything in us, our lives by every word of God? “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee knowContinue reading “All About Choices”
