  1. Daily Devotional - January 7, 2020

    Proverbs 18:21 - "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." Scripture tells us that God uses words to "call those things which be not as though they were" (Romans 4:17). Most people spend their lives "telling it like it is." There is a difference between lying and speaking by faith. A lie is meant to deceive someone. It's designed to make someone believe something that's not true. But to speak by faith is simply to speak words that...
  2. SORROW NOT!

    Isaiah 51:11 - "And the redeemed of the LORD will return and come to Zion with singing, crowned with unending joy. Joy and gladness will overtake them, forever free from sorrow and grief." Isaiah 53:4 - "Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted." Isaiah 53 says Jesus bore our griefs and carried our sorrows. If Jesus was required to bear sorrow and defeat it on the cross then it must be satanic. It must be designed to...
  3. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 10

    C.--Does not the race get back, in the second Adam, spiritual life? A.--Certainly not; Adam was not a spiritual but a human being, consequently had human life and powers, which were declared "very good” i.e. perfect." The consecrated are the only ones warranted by the word of God in expecting a change from human to spiritual conditions--spiritual bodies with spiritual powers "like unto the angels," (the Great Company class) AND "like unto Christ's glorious body” (the “Little Flock”). This...
  4. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 9

    C.--If justice could not let mankind go free from death, how could Jesus be permitted to live if he became man's substitute? Must not his life be forever forfeited? A.--It was forever forfeited--he never took the same life back again. He was quickened (made alive) to a higher life by the Father. He was "put to death in the FLESH, but quickened by the SPIRIT" to a higher plane, a spiritual body. As we shall be, he, our leader, was "sown a natural body, raised a spiritual body." Had he been...
  5. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 8

    C.--Do you understand the Scriptures to teach that all mankind will reach and maintain the perfection of life which Adam lost-- which you called "everlasting life?" A.--It would seem as though such love, when seen, would beget love and obedience; but we are assured there is a second death, and while those who become subject to it, will not compare in numbers with the saved, yet, there will be some, who will not reach perfection, even at the end of the thousand years, who being incorrigible...
  6. Daily Devotional - January 6, 2020

    1 Corinthians 11:26, "For as often as you eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the Lord's death till He comes." The "Tree of Life" relates to life or death. The "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" relates to that which is good or bad, or, right or wrong. In our daily life experiences we often make decisions, or choices that relate to right or wrong, and comment about it being either good or bad. As we do this, we again become attached to the tree of knowledge. Therefore, as...
  7. Seeking Communion - January 5, 2020

    For those who are faint in their heart be of good cheer for the Lord has overcome all that surrounds you. Remember He said, "lo, I am with you always, even until the end of time." (Matthew 28:20) Draw Him into the situation that is trying to draw you into the valley of fear. As you draw Him in His faith within you (Galatians 2:20) rises up, fear will bow down and diminish. Let the faith that He has given you -- let that gift be opened to a greater degree. Release the faith that is within...
  8. PRAYING YOUR LOVED ONE INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD

    2 Corinthians 4:4 - "Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God." NLT If you have been interceding for your brother there is nothing wrong with him except the devil! No human being who truly understood the salvation Jesus offers would reject it of his own free will. Why then are so many people...
  9. Daily Devotional - January 5, 2020

    Isaiah 60:1 - "Arise, shine! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the LORD rises to shine on you." The shift that is upon you right now is the greatest shift and birthing of your life. There is a royal flush of His victory that is already yours in Christ, manifesting powerfully in your life to position you in ways you have never been positioned in, to do what you have never done, and go where you never thought you could go. You will RUN, RUN, RUN with Him, and your body...
  10. Daily Devotional - January 4, 2020

    Matthew 7:13-14 - "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it." Look for God's purpose in everything you are going through and live in the moment, moving forward in each step cautiously, and using His wisdom....
  11. UNDERSTANDING GOD'S DELAYS

    The reasons for delay in your life are actually choices you have total control over? Reason #1 – Pursuing the Promise Instead of God If you have been in a pattern of delay for weeks, months or even years, ask yourself, "Have I been chasing something that is related to God's purpose for my life?" For example, if you want something or need something, is it possible you don't believe you've already received it (Mark 11:24)? God promises in Philippians 4:19, "And my God shall supply all your...
  12. Daily Devotional - January 3, 2020

    Exodus 33:14-16 "And He said, 'My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.' Then he [Moses] said to Him, 'If Thy presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Thy sight, I and Thy people? Is it not by Thy going with us, so that we, I and Thy people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?'" This is a key of great power in God's Kingdom. The presence of God is the...
  13. God Trumps Kings Part II

    Trust and Disobey for there is no other way. In Part I, I spoke about the times when Biblical disobedience is necessary. Part II will be focused on applying it to modern times, not only by saying, “No” to government, but by saying “Yes” to God.
  14. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 7

    C.--If ransomed, why do they remain in death, and others die, since Christ has paid the price? A.--But the price is not yet fully paid. To have a clear understanding of God's plan, we must recognize the distinction which he makes between the world in general and the Church, or called-out ones of the present time. God loves the world, and has made great and rich provisions, as we have seen, for their coming in his due time, to a condition of perfection and happiness, but, in the meantime,...
  15. Why Evil Was Permitted and Related Topics, Part 6

    C.--Was everlasting life one of the things possessed by Adam before he sinned, and which he lost in death; and is it to be restored to mankind through Christ's ransom? A.--YES; his continuance of life, if obedient, is implied in the threatening of death if disobedient. Adam, when created perfect, was possessed of a perfect body, and with perfect arrangements for the continuance of the perfect life, in the trees (woods) of life, in the garden. This kind of life would have lasted forever had...
