How Do I Enter Into God’s Secret Place?

Since the secret place of God is in Jesus who became the physical manifestation of the rock upon which Moses stood, the physical manifestation of God and His presence, we can only enter through Him. He Himself declared in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, No man comes to the […]

A Prayer Of Confidence

A Prayer Of Confidence

In Psalm 17, David references his own situation in which enemies and evil men have oppressed and surrounded him. He calls on God to be his vindicator, appealing to Him for His help. There is a neat thing about Scripture, where in portions like this, it focuses on the then present time and people, yet […]

Hearing The Voice Of God

Hearing The Voice Of God

“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it …” (Isaiah 30:21). Jehovah God is a God that loves to communicate with His people, using a variety of ways from a voice that is “as the sound of many waters” (Revelation 1:15), to the “still small voice” of […]

Like Showers That Water The Earth

Like Showers That Water The Earth

God’s children are likened to a flock of sheep throughout scripture, and the prophet Ezekiel speaks of them as such. In 34:26 he says, “… I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing.” This passage is eschatological with fulfillment in three stages, beginning now with the “church […]

The Path I Tread

The Path I Tread

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6). The tendency of our human nature is to figure it out ourselves; but, like a traveler who does not follow the map, we end up at […]

Thankful Delight For God’s Powerful Word

Psalm 119 is largely about the word of God, and its author utilizes several related terms such as law, commandments, precepts, statutes, and judgments, which are employed well over 125 times in this one Psalm alone (in the King James Version)! Anyone who speaks of a topic so frequently is obviously, deeply ingrained in it, […]

God’s Love Revealed Through His Word

God’s love is declared to us in one of the most classic verses in the Bible, John 3:16, which says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” Love is very costly; love sacrifices everything for its object. God’s love for us is a sacrificial love that caused Him to […]

The Power Of God’s Word (Knowing Christ-Part 1)

We read in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword …” and this tells us that the word of God is energetic, active, effective, and working. It is something that is said – the thought, topic, reasoning, motive, and expression – specifically the divine expression […]

Better… (Part 4)

Better… (Part 4)

In Ephesians 5:18 we read, “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.” We do not sanction the use of intoxicants because of their mind altering, physical controlling power, the devastating actions they promote, and Biblical considerations, period. While wine appears to be the most tolerable […]

When Storms Arise (Part 2)

When Storms Arise (Part 2)

  Once again we return to the night storm at sea in Mark 4:35-41, which symbolizes storms that we may face on the sea of life. The disciples, some of them former fishermen knew the natural tactics of how to handle a boat in a storm, but this storm was more than they could handle […]
