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 2:15 – The Aroma of Christ

Have you ever stopped to think why certain people hate true believers in Jesus Christ so much?  The ultimate answer is that these non-believers are infused with the spirit of Satan.  Because he is such a hater of God with all He has made and done, this anti-God fervor infects and infests those who have…

1 Corinthians 16:9 – And There Are Many Adversaries

The preaching of the Gospel always brings opposition, even strife.  What is Good News to some is anathema to many.  For all those who are broken and in great need of the Word of God, there are also those who want nothing to do with the ways of the Lord.  Paul in 1 Corinthians 16:9…

1 Corinthians 15:53 – Imperishable Immortality

The future that God has for His children is one that we can discuss and speculate about, but until it actually happens, we cannot truly comprehend how marvelous it will be.  Paul describes the process of our joining with Christ and becoming like Him by likening the metamorphosis we’ll undergo to that of a seed…

1 Corinthians 15:24 – Then Comes the End

Can you imagine life without death?  Such a day is coming.  Because Christ lived, died, and rose again, the end of death is a reality otherwise impossible.  It’s been rightly said that the entirety of the Christian faith rests on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  He is an historical figure.  He was a man wise…

1 Corinthians 11:32 – Condemned Along With the World

The taking of Communion is a serious matter.  Partaking of it in the right manner may impact our very health and longevity; the context that Paul outlines implies that it may also have implications in how Jesus judges the world in the Tribulation. When Paul learned how the Corinthians were coming together for the Lord’s…

Psalm 147:11 – Those Who Fear Him

Do you want to know one of the reasons the church in America is so weak?  I believe it relates directly to how believers view God in their relationship with Him.  Over the years the Bible has been attacked on all sides.  It has been questioned as to how reliable it is.  Did so and…

1 Corinthians 7:29 – The Appointed Time Has Grown Very Short

Because of the pagan lifestyle from which the church in Corinth emerged, Paul had much to teach them about living in holiness and righteousness.  They had immorality among them that they apparently didn’t recognize as such.  There were issues among some of the women in church exhibiting improper conduct by speaking out of turn.  What…

Psalm 119:104 – I Get Understanding

Psalm 119 is like the meditation of a faithful man who relates how he remains steadfast in the Lord.  In the psalm he describes his encounters with those who hate him, and the response that he gives and lives.  Because it’s a writing of the Old Testament, i.e. of the Old Covenant, we can miss…

1 Corinthians 2:8 – Rulers of This Age

Those who oppose God inevitably believe they are smarter than Him.  They devise plans that oppose His will and think that He doesn’t see and know them.  This is part of their foolishness.  If the Lord knows how many hairs each of us has on our heads (Luke 12:7), then might He not also know…
