The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but …

Bear the infirmities of the weak

We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as it is written, 'The reproaches of them that reproached Thee fell on Me.' For whatsoever things were written …

When works are no more works; and grace is no more grace

I say then, 'Hath God cast away His people?' God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew. Wot ye not what the Scripture saith of Elias? How he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, 'Lord, …

The goodness of God

Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things. And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them …

Neither count I my life dear unto myself

And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might …

Day Eighty Seven – The Best High Priest

When I began doing this 90 days of reading through the Bible my thinking on these posts were not to write commentaries on what I had read, but that is probably what they are.  They are more my thoughts on what I have read, and certainly not verbally inspired as the Scriptures are.  I had …

Day Eighty Six – The Brethren and The Priesthood

The Scheduled reading today is 1 Timothy 4 through Hebrews 2; I read 2 Timothy 1 through Hebrews 5.  A wonderful reading.  I read of Timothy faithful pastor at Ephesus, and Titus a faithful Christian pastor on the Isle of Crete (1:5), and his ministry to the people.  Paul’s call to Titus for the appointing …

Day Eighty Five – Until Jesus Comes Again

The scheduled reading for today is Colossians 3 through 1 Timothy 3.  Today's study is dealing with First and Second Thessalonians. Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians was one about living in this world until Jesus comes again.  In the Thessalonian letters he does address the second coming of Christ, even the rapture of the church; …

Day Eighty Four – Spiritual Blessings

Our scheduled Scripture reading for today is Galatians 6 through Colossians 2. It could be said probably, that, everybody likes a blessing.  Those who do not believe in God, however, may not call it “Blessing”.  What would you have to be thankful for?  Who would you thank?  I do not have the answer.  We will …

Day Eighty Three – The Power of the Cross

There have been some wonderful photo shots of lightening.  There is a whole lot of power in each one of those bolts of light.  The  one’s who know those things could tell you how much, but I am coming up without any trivia on that except to know there is so much power that just …

Day Eighty Two – On Forgiving Others

Yesterday’s post was about “Sin in the Church”.  Looking in First Corinthians at the Corinthian church was not much different than looking into the world; maybe even worse.  The apostle Paul confronted a situation which grieved his heart.  These were his spiritual children, and they were in the midst of tolerating the evil in their …

Day Eighty One – Dealing With Sin In The Church

There is probably nothing more sure and clear than the title of this post, "Dealing With Sin in the Church”.  To ask, “Is there sin in our churches?” is a very unnecessary question.  Where there is a church without sin; it is of their own confession; and not the truth.  Besides where there is people …

Day Eighty – Shipwreck, Sin, and Slavery

The world we live in with all the conveniences, comforts, and wealth is not often viewed with slavery, or sin in mind.  As a matter of fact most of the human race would just as soon forget the idea of sin and chalk it up to being an antiquated idea.  An ancient superstition or fear …

Day Seventy Nine – Walking in The Spirit of God

I often see that my walk with God is not what it ought to be.  Sometimes I am not so sure that I have ever really walked with God in the same way the apostle Paul, or even John Mark may have.  I read the gospels, the New Testament, and even the Old Testament and …
