2 Corinthians 12:10 – When I Am Weak

It’s very easy these days to lose heart.  The enemy – although probably few in numbers – appears to have much strength.  He certainly has momentum.  When all the levers of power are arrayed against us, the odds look overwhelming.  All we have to do is witness how the entire government of this nation has…

2 Corinthians 11:20 – If Someone Makes Slaves of You

In Chapter 11 of 2 Corinthians Paul rebukes the church at Corinth for its willingness to be fooled and manipulated by false apostles preaching a faux gospel.  Despite the many spiritual gifts with which God had blessed the congregation, spiritual discernment apparently wasn’t one of them; or if it was, the people disregarded what the…

Ecclesiastes 7:25 – The Wickedness of Folly

When Solomon became king at a young age following the death of his father David, he approached God and prayed mightily to Him.  His heart was right with the Lord.  Because of this, Yahweh answered Him.  God declared that since Solomon desired nothing for himself but wisdom in order to govern the people of Israel…

2 Corinthians 10:4 – Weapons of War

Concern is growing among many – myself included – as to where the actions of our government, which has clearly aligned itself against a certain segment of the population, lead in these times ahead.  The Biden Regime has staked out a position that labels conservatives and Christians as the enemy.  This is not hyperbole on…

Ecclesiastes 3:11 – He Has Put Eternity Into Man’s Heart

King Solomon – the Preacher in Ecclesiastes – had an astounding gift from God.  Because at the time of his ascension to the throne, he was humble and asked nothing for himself, God gave him the wisdom of the ages.  No one, before or since, has had the wisdom of Solomon.  It’s a strange thing,…

2 Corinthians 8:14 – Your Abundance at the Present Time

Can you see into the future?  Does your vision extend past the present and your current situation?  Are you able to get a sense of what’s coming?  Do you know how you’ll act when difficult times are upon us?  Will you represent the Lord in a manner worthy of Him? I personally desire to answer…

2 Corinthians 7:10 – Godly Grief

In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul expressed shock at what he had heard the congregation found acceptable in the actions of some around them.  There was sexual immorality in their midst, and they weren’t addressing it.  Paul said this must be corrected.  The man committing this sin – since he was…

2 Corinthians 6:16 – What Accord Has Christ With Belial?

The world is a subtle and tempting place.  It has its pleasures, and men desire them.  The allure of worldly things has caused many a person to stumble and fall.  It’s bad enough when someone secular succumbs and his end is grievous, it’s certainly worse when a Christian does so since he should know better….

Proverbs 24:11 – Rescue Those Taken Away to Death

The times in which we live are creating multiple schisms. We have the big one of the day being between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. There are many who are working hard to cause this rift to be even greater. They want a bifurcated society, not of haves and have-nots, but of the jabbed and…

2 Corinthians 4:18 – Things That Are Unseen

What we see happening around us in the world can be overwhelming. There are times it takes our breath away. We ask, “How could this possibly happen?” “Is anyone in charge?” “What next?” It seems that from one week to the next, things get worse. “Is there no end to this?” “Can’t we get back…
