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 …

Day Seventy Eight – Loved Not Their Lives Unto Death

We have heard it said, “I will love the Lord, even unto death”; Peter said something similar to that; even as the Lord told him “You will deny Me three times”. The Scripture reading this morning was in Acts 1 through chapter 13.  There will be some concluding study in chapter 14. These events give …

More Glory Than Moses

"Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; who was faithful to Him that appointed Him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. For this Man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath …

The Great God and Our Savior

"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; who gave Himself for us, that He might …

The Holy Spirit Speaks

"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe …
