Submission

  It seems that the Judahites Thought of themselves as God’s chosen race that would always experience God’s good blessings, failing to keep in mind that those blessings are only attained to by abiding in and keeping His covenant. Because of blatant sin, moral decline, and rebellion, Babylon came against Jerusalem and captured it bringing […]

God’s Revelation Of Himself

God’s Revelation Of Himself

Psalm 19 speaks of two specific ways in which God has revealed Himself to the world. First in verses 1-6 He gives us a general revelation of Himself, His Power, Might, and Goodness through what we call “nature”. Though incomplete, the Apostle says “Nevertheless He did not leave Himself without witness…” Acts 14:17. No matter […]

Feed My Sheep

Feed My Sheep

In Luke 9:10-17 the disciples see a crisis but Jesus sees an opportunity.

Celebrating “Christmas”

Celebrating “Christmas”

As we approach the Christmas holiday let us pause and think about the day we call “Christmas.

A Message To God’s Children

A Message To God’s Children

The Bible has much to say about little children with reference to Christians. In Mark 10:13-16 people brought little children to Jesus to be touched by Him; the disciples apparently thought it was a hindrance and “rebuked” them, but Jesus “was greatly displeased” with that and said, “Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God […]

In The Fullness Of Time

The phrase “in the process of time” appears five times in the King James Version of the Old Testament translated from a combination of Hebrew words indicating that after a period of time or at a specific time certain things or events took place. While God Himself lives in eternity He deals with us in […]

Like Shining Stars

Like Shining Stars

Jesus was intent on doing the work of the kingdom of God during His window of opportunity in this world. In John 9:4-5 He said “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” But soon His window of opportunity in this world (physically) would be gone, and the […]
