  1. The Cords of Affliction

    ALL FLESH IS GRASS. IT WITHERS IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY; baked by the sun. Whether we like it or not, we all have one thing in common: The Cords of affliction. Romans 8:20-21 says, “For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, [21] Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.” Made ‘...subject to vanity’ we all are. BY the same one...
  2. Deny This "Friendship Request"

    Lately I've been seeing many friends on Facebook put this message: "Do not accept a friend request from me, I've been hacked." Seeing all of these post got me thinking last night. The one "friendship request" we should all deny is friendship with the world. It is easier to regain a hacked Facebook account than a life tangled with the sin of the world. God created a beautiful world with magnificent views of mountains, oceans, and all of creation shows the great glory of God. God wants us to...

  4. “the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself”

    Genesis 1:11 [11] And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. “...and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself,” And here is great hope in “...His seed remains. Do we fully realize how precious and prosperous it is that His seed remains in us? 1 John 3:9 “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in...
  5. Daily Word - October 1, 2018

    "He said to me, 'Son of man, can these bones live?' And I answered, 'O Lord GOD, You know.'" - Ezekiel 37:3 God is always standing by, ready to breathe new life into anything lifeless when we ask. He is there in our spiritual springtime and in the cold, winter months. And He is even closer, hovering nearby in our darkest hours, according to Psalm 34:18 where it says: "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." This scripture asks the question, "...can these bones...
  6. How I Understand Good and Evil-- Part One

    The discussion on the Christianity Board Forums about The Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil and Satan's Ability to Create produced some statements that I thought, if carried to their extreme, would make God the creator of evil. My efforts to clarify this seemed to make matters worse. So I said I would clairfy my thoughts in a blog post. St. Augustine and many other brilliant minds have said what I'm trying to say. So I feel foolish in my attempt. But I did say I would post this. I hope,...
  7. A sound mind: The Spirit of Love vs the spirit of fear.

    For most of my life I had the furthest thing from an example of a sound mind. I lived in torment. Fearful, anxious, panicked, horrible at dealing with or accepting life's challenges. There was no peace, for sure. If I had to describe a panic attack in a few shorts words it would be: an overwhelming need to outrun. To outrun everything; to always be ever watchful and to remain in a constant fight or flight mode. There is no peace in that. But a sound mind is a promise and it is true. God...
  8. Bear witness:

    1 Corinthians 10:13 says “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” “...will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that he may be able to bear it.” That we may be able to bear it: Is a beautiful promise that where the flesh is weak and unable, the Spirit is willing and capable. If we force...
  9. Fire kindled:

    In the book of Job, consider the forth speaking on Job's affliction. The mysterious Elihu; which the LORD when He responds to Job doesn't ever address as being wrong. Who is this young man that appears in the narrative? Job 32:2 “Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu...” because Job justified himself rather than God. Verse 3 says Elihu’s wrath was also kindled against Job’s friends because they found no answer and yet condemned Job. Elihu speaks: Job 33:31-33 [31] Mark well, O Job, hearken...
  10. That which is Least:

    Consider "least" and "faithful": (Luke 16:10-13) "He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. [11] If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches ? [12] And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own? [13] No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the...
  11. The angel of Lord by night opened the prison doors.

    Acts 5:19-20 [19] But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth(from captivity), and said, [20] Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. “...the Lord by night opened the prison doors,” then He gave a command “Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.” We are to speak forth “all the words of this life.” What life? the life found only in the Son! For God(the Father) “hath committed unto...
  12. The "folk tale" of bel and the dragon. (Part Two)

    If interested, please, read part one first. Bel and the dragon: "Now Daniel had commanded his servants to bring ashes, and those they strewed throughout all the temple in the presence of the king alone: then went they out, and shut the door, and seal it with the king's signet, and so departed. Now in the night came the priest with their wives and children, … and did eat and drink up all." Ashes: "And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and...
  13. The "folk tale" of bel and the dragon. -Part One

    The narrative of bel (14:1–22) is a folk tale ridiculing worship. In it, the king asks Daniel "Do you not think that Bel is a living god? Do you not see how much he eats and drinks every day?" Daniel proves through a ruse that the sacred meal of bel is actually consumed at night by the seventy priests and their wives and children, who entered through a secret door when the temple's doors were sealed. The priests and their wives and children are killed, and Daniel is permitted to destroy the...
  14. Faint not.

    He is risen. Revelation 1:17-18 "And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: [18] I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death." He is alive for evermore. Matthew 28:7 "And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have...
  15. DAILY MEDITATIONS AND AFFIRMATIONS - 202

    Ephesians 1:5 - "Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will." CHRISTIANS ARE THE TRUE ROYALTY ON THE EARTH AND ARE HONORED BY THE HEAVENLY HOST FAR ABOVE ANY EARTHLY KINGS OR PRESIDENTS. THIS IS THE GOOD PLEASURE OF HIS WILL. NOTHING WILL EVER BE STRONG ENOUGH TO THWART HIS WILL, AND THEREFORE OUR INHERITANCE IN HIM IS MORE SECURE THAN ANY EARTHLY POSITION EVER COULD BE. EVEN WHEN WE WERE YET SINNERS, HE BOUGHT US FOR A...
