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 ...

Leading the Quiet and Peaceable Life Pt. 2

False expectations can be devastating in our personal lives, toward our spouses, in parenting, and in other relationships.

Leading the Quiet & Peaceable Life Pt. 1

The technology of the modern and post-modern world has given new wave mediums to “the prince of the power of the air”.  Access to the course of Satan’s world is available in our homes, in our cars, and now is even mobile with a mobility that exceeds the radio as we drive our vehicles.  These ...

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth

In this day in age, a Christian can go to a bookstore and find a mass of resources regarding, “how to study God’s Word”.  Without a doubt, many of these can provide insight in connection with many things regarding God’s Word, for instance: geography, measurements, cultural characteristics, and the like.  Yet, these are more study ...

The Judgment Seat of Christ

Reward, prizes, and competition can be gruesome, unfair, and cultivate selfishness and an ego in this world.  We should automatically know then when our heavenly Father speaks of “reward” and “the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” that its obtainment is given based upon His own standard, rather than the “wisdom ...

Working unto the Lord Pt. 2

When we know business is ordained by God, and that most jobs can be used to serve the Lord in, and that diligence is the first word to describe how God conducts Himself with His business, we should ask the question how can I be diligent in business and not slothful?  Our Father provides us ...

Working unto the Lord Pt. 1

“not slothful in business, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord”             The Bible has much to say about business, work, and labor.  Our Father teaches in many passages about the topic to provide understanding to the student and those who love Him.  We are to understand business and how to labor in it.  The spiritual ...
