Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. Jesus said that something divided, cannot stand. Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. Mark 3:26 And if Satan rise up...

573 QUALITY!

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 ...

Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. My Heavenly father’s word is true and will be in my ears to guide me. Revelation 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh ...

571 JUDGMENT STARTS NOW!

Posted in Bible on Fri, Mar 30 2018 - 05:09 AM

| Comment (1)

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. Matthew 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. For those who think that ‘...

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…

Posted in Bible on Sat, Mar 17 2018 - 05:30 AM

| Comment (1)

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...

568 COMFORTABLE WITH THE STATUS QUO!

| Comment (1)

Revelation 3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:  Are we really happy with where we are and what life is like around us? We seem to have all of God’s blessings and little of the world’s...

567 I TOLD YOU SO.

Posted in Bible on Fri, Mar 02 2018 - 07:32 AM

  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.

Posted in Bible on Sun, Feb 25 2018 - 10:59 AM

| Comments (2)

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,...

565 RIPPLE EFFECT.

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!

Posted in Bible on Sat, Feb 10 2018 - 06:06 PM

| Comments (3)

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.

Posted in Bible on Sat, Jan 27 2018 - 02:34 PM

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!

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...
