Posted in Bible on Sat, Jul 07 2018 - 05:55 PM

583 THAT IS SAD!

Posted in Bible on Mon, Jul 02 2018 - 06:02 PM

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. God is trying so hard to get mankind to accept His gift of salvation, through repentance, because He loves us. God knows what WE DON’T. Because ...

Posted in Bible on Sat, Jun 23 2018 - 04:52 AM

Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. God is patient, kind, longsuffering, and eternal but, there comes a time when even His best is not good enough, for some people. Then He will give them what they are struggling so hard for;...

581 ONCE SAVED, ALWAYS SAVED…REALLY?

Posted in Bible on Fri, Jun 15 2018 - 04:15 PM

| Comments (3)

John 10:29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. There is no easy way to talk about this doctrine. The phrase ‘once saved, always saved’ is not in scripture. It is coined of the fact that Jesus is more powerful than anyone else and can keep those who give their...

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. We all know that to walk in the sunlight is to be in it all day. We do not think about it unless it becomes too hot and then we try to get out of it. When we walk in the sunlight,...

Isaiah 14:24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: God had a purpose for creating this world and He had a thought in mind when He created mankind to oversee it.

578 WORD!

Posted in Bible on Sat, May 26 2018 - 04:40 PM

Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. I am going to embark on a subject that is going to offend many, and that is the word of God. Mankind has been inundated with an assault on words, and especially the true word of God. Words which...

575 HOW IS YOUR CONSCIENCE?

Posted in Bible on Sat, Apr 28 2018 - 05:57 PM

1 Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: It is the job of the Holy Ghost, which Jesus gives to those who love Him, to lead us into the love and truth of God. John 14:26 But the...

Acts 6:3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. God is more interested in quality rather than quantity. It is not that God wants only the best and will reject the rest; it is that God will take the rest and MAKE AS MANY, AS WILL STICK WITH ...

1 Corinthians 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. We are creating our own judgment. God is watching how we react to others and will treat us accordingly.

570 GOD’S INCREASE AT OUR EXPENSE

Posted in Bible on Fri, Mar 23 2018 - 02:42 PM

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. God GAVE His son so mankind could take His life, unjustly, on Calvary’s cross, to pay for our salvation. There is a cost involved with serving our Lord. Not just in financials but in time, ...

569 IF WE BELIEVE…

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Do we really believe that God’s word is true? Do our actions PROVE that God’s word is true? Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is...

  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. ...

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,...

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?

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?

561 BELIEVING!

Posted in Bible on Sat, Jan 20 2018 - 12:19 AM

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...
