Renewing our minds for this world or the world at all times?

A few thoughts we should possess not only now, but at all times in the world in which we live – sorry about the writing….. Grace and Peace Beloved, Throughout this season of a pandemic, I have heard much of the same as before the coronavirus about politics, economy, the constitution, rights, theories about the ...

Biblical Clarity in the Face of COVID-19

The spectrum of response the church is giving to the virus and its’ effect is manifesting the sleeping giant of error couched in the church.  In other words, the Coronavirus is manifesting a greater problem and that is the doctrinal array of error that resides in the church.  The confusion has been reflected in the ...

Bringing Up the Man of God

Over a little more than a year ago I was invited to attend a ceremony.  This ceremony was being hosted by parents for their son.  This wasn’t a graduation, he was younger than graduation age, but of a sort was.  They asked if I could attend and speak.  Due to scheduling conflicts, I was unable ...

God’s All Grace for Your All-Sufficiency

“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:” ~ 2 Corinthians 9:8 ~ Sufficiency necessitates purpose, goal, objective.  Sufficiency is means to an end.  The sufficiency spoken of in 2 Corinthians is provided by God’s abundant, all ...

Patient Soul Possession Pt. 3

The little flock during the future time of Jacob’s trouble will need “patience” to endure such times.  The description of those times is a major doctrine throughout the testimony of scripture.  Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel prophesied about these future times.  Daniel made prayers and supplications to God to know more about the timing of ...

Patient Soul Possession Pt. 2

Christ’s exhortations to “…endure unto the end, and the same shall be saved” (Matt. 24:13) or, “In your patience possess ye your souls.” (Luk. 21:19) are not exhortations that are dealing with eternal salvation from the debt and penalty of one’s sins.  Whether it be in Matthew or Luke the context is not spiritual salvation ...

Patient Soul Possession Pt. 1

Jesus had thoroughly prepared His disciples for the prophesied persecutions they were going to face. From the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7) to the Sermon on the Mount of Olives (Matt. 24) He taught and warned them. This is echoed by Peter in 1 Peter 4:12-14, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery ...

Humble Confidence

The great king of Assyria sent his messengers Tartan, Rabsaris, and Rabshakeh along with a great host against Jerusalem.  Eliakim, Shebna, and Joah came out to hear their message.  Rabshakeh presented his intimidating question, “What confidence is this wherein thou trustest?”  Hezekiah’s options, make pledges to the king of Assyria as their servants or place ...

Leading the Quiet and Peaceable Life Pt. 4

Godliness transcends partisanship and the politics of higher offices no matter their form within any nation.  The bearers of godliness have always transcended the winds of politics.  Yet, the crass conversation of politics has infiltrated the speech and attitude of those in Christ toward the very ones that God has commended His love to.  At ...

Leading the Quiet and Peaceable Life Pt. 3

The Lord Jesus Christ testified that He was the light of men and therefore the Light had come into the world.  Now that Christ is at the right hand of the Father those that are in Him, though we live in this present evil world, are to continue the tradition in His stead.  We too ...
