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...

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...

559 THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Posted in Bible on Fri, Dec 29 2017 - 05:39 PM

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...

558 SHAME AND HONOUR.

Posted in Bible on Fri, Dec 22 2017 - 04:43 PM

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...

557 IT IS WHAT WE DO WITH THEM.

Posted in Bible on Sat, Dec 16 2017 - 03:49 PM

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...

556 IN A MOMENT.

Posted in Bible on Sun, Dec 10 2017 - 10:59 AM

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...

555 BUS.

Posted in Bible on Sun, Dec 03 2017 - 02:11 PM

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’...

554 SUFFERING.

Posted in Bible on Sun, Dec 03 2017 - 02:08 PM

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...

553 JUST LIKE THEM.

Posted in Bible on Sat, Nov 18 2017 - 06:13 AM

Job 8:13 So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish: Only those who are wrong get angry when we are not like them. We all want to think that WE ARE RIGHT! Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. We gather together in groups or clicks to associate with...

552 I HAVE RIGHTS?

Posted in Bible on Sat, Nov 11 2017 - 07:52 AM

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;...

551 YOUR LAST DAY!

Posted in Bible on Sat, Nov 04 2017 - 05:45 AM

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? The sad truth is that hardly anyone knows when their times will come to depart from this life and go on into eternity. We live such a fragile existence where even a slight jar or bump could lead ...

550 UNWORTHY!

Posted in Bible on Fri, Oct 27 2017 - 05:46 PM

John 1:27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose. Jesus said that there was no greater person on the earth than John the Baptist. Matthew 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is...

549 THIS IS NOW, PEOPLE.

Posted in Bible on Sat, Oct 21 2017 - 05:29 PM

2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. The last days AND THE PERILOUS TIMES are here, now. This was written to Timothy almost 2000 years ago and all that time has gone by so, why would we think that this is still a future thing? 2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,...

548 ALL ABOUT THAT SIN.

Posted in Bible on Fri, Oct 13 2017 - 04:16 PM

Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; It is important to remember that the actions of the wicked are not the sins of the wicked. The actions of the wicked are the result of the sin in their heart. Sin is a ...

Jeremiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.  God’s church is waiting for our returning Lord to ...

546 PASS IT ON.

Posted in Bible on Fri, Sep 29 2017 - 05:19 PM

Malachi 2:7 For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.  We…..yes, YOU AND ME have the responsibility to speak the truth to one another. God wants to speak to everyone BUT not everyone wants to hear God. So, God has given the responsibility ...

545 JUST START!

Posted in Bible on Sat, Sep 16 2017 - 03:52 PM

Romans 1:10 Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you.  Everything has a beginning; there is always a place to start before we can get anywhere. The beginning is always a frightful place because all is in front of us. We see what a huge effort it is going to take....

2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. Air is a necessary substance for our existence. If there were no air, we would die. Air carries oxygen, which is a vital food for our bodies to...

543 PROCESS.

Posted in Bible on Mon, Aug 28 2017 - 04:52 AM

Hebrews 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Even before we were born, there were those who had plans for our lives, goals they wanted us to achieve, and importance they wanted us to become. We entered into this ‘goal’ oriented mindset upon our birth and those mature adults, in...

542 NOT FAITH!

Posted in Bible on Sat, Aug 19 2017 - 04:41 PM

Romans 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.  It is very easy to cheat a Christian because Jesus is teaching us to have faith. Having faith means that we WANT TO BELIEVE the things people tell us. We want everyone to speak the truth and, when they don...

Posted in Bible on Sat, Aug 12 2017 - 06:52 AM

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  Everyone is good at something. Usually, it is something in which they are passionately interested. Even those who seem to be troublemakers and idlers are good at what they do because THAT IS WHAT THEY...

541 LIFE IS A HIGHWAY.

Posted in Bible on Sat, Aug 05 2017 - 06:21 AM

Proverbs 16:17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. You have heard me compare the Christian walk to a drive on the highway and the drivers there but I am going to try to compare it in more detail here. The very first thing we must do is pick our vehicle for our drive (life). We can...

Posted in Bible on Sat, Jul 29 2017 - 06:19 PM

John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. Have you noticed how easily derogatory and accusing words come out of our mouths at what others do but correction and innocence is what we...

Luke 22:19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.  We, humans, love to celebrate. We do it starting every Friday because it is the last day of work before the weekend and then celebrate any and every event, major happening, or...

Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. Luke 11:25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Luke 11:26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; ...
