567 I TOLD YOU SO.

  Luke 16:31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.   God’s word is all we need to understand the truth. It is just so hard to find in a world soaked in lies.   First, where do we find the truth? We know that Jesus was the truth. ...

566 SILENCE.

Authored by stephen0porter on Sun, Feb 25 2018 - 10:59 AM

Ecclesiastes 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;  Is silence really golden? Ever since God created this world, there has never been a time of complete silence. We are surrounded by ‘white noise’. That is the noise of existence; wind, birds, animals, movement, sea waves, ...

Matthew 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.  Every ounce of physical matter has an aura or persona. It has some form of influence on its surroundings. One stone, lying anywhere, influences ...

564 THE GOSPEL!

Authored by stephen0porter on Sat, Feb 10 2018 - 06:06 PM

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. The gospel – the good news; what is that? Many religions, books and speeches have been created explaining and promoting God’s ‘good news’ but is it really THAT hard to understand? Acts 28:27 For the heart of this people ...

Job 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. What God gives us is not for us to judge and accept or condemn and reject. God gives everything for us TO ENJOY. 1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that ...

562 BELIEVING, PART TWO.

James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? In part one, we understand that to believe, one must have something to believe in. Even though there are many beliefs and many things, that mankind believes in, ...

561 BELIEVING!

Authored by stephen0porter on Sat, Jan 20 2018 - 12:19 AM

stephen0porter's avatar

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Believing is faith; to believe something or someone, is to have faith in that something or someone. When you believe, you will trust what you believe in. I could go on and define all kinds of worldly beliefs and probably hit most of you but believing ...

Love the Neighbore and More

Authored by ASCombs2662 on Tue, Jan 16 2018 - 07:28 PM

 In Genesis 1:26, we read that man was created “in the image of God.” Ask yourself this question: if my neighbor was, as I am, created in God’s image, how can I not love him/her? In fact, how can I say that I love God if I don’t love my neighbor? (see the Bible, 1 John 4:20)  Jesus became flesh to be a man ...

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  Jesus has promised those, who trust Him, peace. It is the peace, which He had while He walked on this earth as a man. John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be ...

A lesson in Genesis, the Lord is mindful...Genesis 331 Jacob looked up and there was Esau, coming with his four hundred men; so he divided the children among Leah, Rachel and the two maidservants. 2 He put the maidservants and their children in front, Leah and her children next, and Rachel and Joseph in the rear. 3 He himself went on ahead and ...

Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Every believer in Jesus Christ should recognize these words; ‘the kingdom of God is within you’. These are Jesus’ direct words to the general public. He was in the presence of the Pharisees, probably in Jerusalem. If you ...

Job 1:8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Can God TRUST you enough to brag about you? God wants us to LIVE A LIFE THAT HE CAN BE PLEASED WITH. Job was not only fearful about his life before God but ...

1 John 3:17 But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?  There is a stigma about wealth. People wish to be wealthy but condemn and convict those, who have wealth, as liars and thieves. They believe because one has accumulated ...

John 4:4 And he must needs go through Samaria. God has a time and place for everything but we are not slaves to time as we think we are. We are to move through life working with God in His time, which is flexible to our obedience. We make schedules and appointments to organize our lives and then we become slaves to those same appointments when ...

John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.  Jesus is like a bus. We recognize that it is going to the place we want to be, get in, and STAY IN UNTIL WE GET TO OUR DESTINATION! Jesus is going to inherit, and be the king of, God’ ...

Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Jesus, God’s son, learned obedience by THE THINGS WHICH HE SUFFERED. Then, scripture says, ‘and being made perfect’. Can we ...

Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. When we were created, man had no rights but he was given many responsibilities. Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. That’s right, man’s first job was to be a farmer; ...

Luke 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

Are You Convinced?

No one will convince me that God isn’t real. No one will convince that God’s Word doesn’t work or that He doesn’t save (John 3:16,) heal (Romans 8:11) or fight my battles for me (Exodus 14:14). Why? Because I have experienced too many healings in my body, too many situations being turned around in my favor. I have seen God ...

Imagine: God knew you before He formed the world (Ephesians 1:4.) He saw all the mistakes and choices you would make, the people whose lives you would change, even the times you turned your back on Him and denied Him like Peter (John 18:15-27.) He still loved you. He still thought you were worth creating. He picked a specific purpose for you to ...
