John 12:43 – The Glory From Man

Salvation is simple. It requires nothing on our part other than belief. We don’t have to clean ourselves up in any way. Jesus says, “Come as you are.” We can be broken and destitute, or we can be at the top of our game; it doesn’t matter. As long as our hearts are gripped by…

John 12:8 – The Poor With Us

Whatever events happened around Him, Jesus always used them to teach about the kingdom of God. That which He taught His disciples then is useful for us today in one form or another. One compelling incident occurred among those in His inner circle just before His triumphal entry into Jerusalem at Passover before His crucifixion….

1 Chronicles 29:3 – Giving To the House of God

It should be patently obvious to all Christians that God wants us to give to, i.e. sow into, His kingdom. We do this through our tithes and offerings. This is not a law or a strict command, rather it’s something we should want to do from our hearts. God seeks those who freely give and…

John 11:27: Yes Lord, I Believe

An argument that many of the feminist persuasion make is that the Bible, and by association, all of ancient Israel, was paternalistic and that women were degraded – nothing but chattel – almost on the equivalent of slaves.  In their thinking, the culture that Scripture portrays is rife with offensives because women were housebound and…

John 11:9 – Walk In the Day

Jesus answered, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.” (John 11:9-10) Do you want to walk and not stumble?  Walk…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-26-21: Future According to Georgia Guidestones

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-26-21: The Future According to the Georgia Guidestones The Georgia Guidestones are mysterious and “strangely” aligned with the globalist agenda. Most people and groups telegraph their intentions. Unfortunately we have a tendency to not believe people when then they tell us things that don’t fit our preconceived notions. In the case…

John 10:27 – My Sheep Hear My Voice

In our day and age, we can’t relate as much to the parallels and word usage which we see in Scripture as could the people back in ancient Israel. They were an agrarian society that lived close to the land. They farmed and raised herds of animals. As such, they were intimately familiar with crops…

John 10:16 – One Flock One Shepherd

God didn’t have to do any of this. He had no need that He had to fill. There wasn’t any outside influence on Him. God created us simply because He wanted to. No, maybe I’m wrong. Perhaps He did have a need. That need was to lavish the love bursting in His heart upon someone….

John 9:31 – God Listens to Him

For some reason, many people who consider themselves Christians believe they can live a carnal or secular life and still have God listen and respond to them.  In our present culture there are numerous people who go to church and live far from God, yet expect His blessings.  Who are these people?  Given the nature…

1 Chronicles 12:32 – Understanding the Times

If the days are evil, shouldn’t we know that? When all in the world isn’t as it should be, doesn’t the church have an obligation to understand what’s happening? And in knowing these things, aren’t we who believe obligated to act?  Scripture says, “Yes, indeed!” In 1 Chronicles 12:32 here is what we’re told about…
