The Fruit Of A Tested Faith

James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting …

Continue in Faithfulness

But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.  But evil men …

Beware Of Lying To God

But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, and kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet.  But Peter said, "Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and …

The Reason We Were Created

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, "Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter."  And immediately I was in the Spirit: and, behold, a throne …

Asking God’s Will, Then Not Doing It

Then all the captains of the forces, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and Jezaniah the son of Hoshaiah, and all the people from the least even unto the greatest, came near, and said unto Jeremiah the prophet, "Let, we beseech thee, our supplication be accepted before thee, and pray for us unto the LORD thy …

Day Thirty Three – Look Again

Our reading today is Nehemiah 11 - Esther 10.  The commentary this morning will deal solely with Esther. Esther is a book of the Bible that never names the name of God.  God is not even mentioned in person; however the work, power and presence of God is clearly seen by those who have the …

Mary and The Master

"But Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping: and as she wept, she stooped down, into the sepulchre, and saw two angels in white sitting, the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.  And they say unto her, 'Woman, why are you weeping?' She said …

He Who Sees Me Sees Him Who Sent Me

"Jesus cried and said, 'He that believes on Me, believes not on Me, but on Him that sent Me.  And he that sees Me sees Him that sent Me.  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes on Me should not abide in darkness.  And if any man hear My words, and …

A Zeal for GOD, and Holiness

Sometimes I fear, due to what some call grace, that holiness is a forgotten quality within Christianity. We need the zeal of Phinehas in dealing with sin; starting with our own sins. Due to the deceptive, lying, personal aggrandizing of Balaam to make his own greed successful the Moabites came in with lusty pleasures to …

Pulling Down Strong Holds – 2 Corinthians 10:1-6

"Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: but I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us …
