Wonderful Name

Wonderful Name

When we think of the wonderfulness of Jesus the first Scripture that likely comes to mind is Isaiah 9:6 where we are given some descriptive insight into His coming and mission. One of the unique things about this verse is the four or five descriptive names given to Him. Names in the Bible often had […]

Love Is

Love Is

Love is an attribute of God the seed of which is implanted within at the New Birth. Jesus said “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” John 13:35. This love (Greek, Agape) is not just an emotional feeling that we tend to associate with love, […]

Water In The Wilderness

Water In The Wilderness

Soon after leaving Egypt, crossing the Red Sea as by dry land, witnessing God overthrow Pharaoh and his army when they tried to follow them, and having a praise service for the victory (see Exodus 15) they come to the wilderness of Shur; in verses 23-25, finding no water for three days they came to […]

Bread From Heaven

Bread From Heaven

About a month and a half after being miraculously brought out of Egypt by God His people run out of food and rather than trusting Him for more miracles they resort to complaining against Moses and Aaron, God’s  ordained leaders, which God considers to be against Him! Think twice before you find fault with those […]

The Shield Of The Lord

The Shield Of The Lord

A shield was an important part of ancient armor, used to protect the soldier against incoming rounds from the enemy. Figuratively it is used of God as the protector of His people. David used this figure of speech during the time of Absalom’s rebellion recorded in 2 Samuel 15 as he took flight to the […]

Fellowship Of Believers

Fellowship Of Believers

In 1 John 1:3 we read these words, “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you…” Remember John had seen Jesus with his own physical eyes, and heard His words with his own physical ears and it was what he saw and heard that he was anxious to share with his Christian […]

How About Job?

How About Job?

Job was an upright man that feared God and kept himself from evil, 1:1. Being severely tested he neither sinned with his lips or blamed God, 1:22; 2:10. However he spoke beyond his knowledge, and when God questions him he acknowledges his error, despises himself, repents in full humility, then steps out serving God and […]

Have You Seen The Glory?

Have You Seen The Glory?

In Exodus 33:18-20 Moses asked God to be shown His glory, to which God replied that Moses would see His goodness and hear the proclamation of His name, but could not physically look on His face. In due time God sent Jesus to become a part of mankind, and through Him we can see God’s […]

   All For Jesus

   All For Jesus

Imagine the excitement of a lad in the crowd around Jesus in John 6; when there is a need for food he offers his five barley loaves and two small fish, but Andrew  asks “what are they among so many?” But Jesus took that meager supply, which was obviously all the boy had, gave thanks […]

 Overflowing, Un-understandable, Exuberant Joy

Peter, in his first epistle, addresses people who because of their commitment to Christ are suffering various trials and rejection by their fellowmen, with such opposition that in 4:12 he refers to it as a “fiery trial”. Yet in spite of all this Peter takes note of, and thus encourages them to continue in their […]
