Exxept The Lord Build The House

Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Psalms 127:1 KJV The meaning is,. People build a house for shelter, protection from outside forces. The most deadly threats in this world are not natural, not flesh and blood, […]

“The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things…” Jer. 17

Extreme negative emotions are very often a sign of imbalance, immaturity, and deception. Men are designed with the highest level of intellect which is our highest form of communication. When a person chooses emotions as the highest form of communication they are likely demonstrating immaturity at the least and likely deception. The reason is as […]

The Kingdom of Heaven Suffers Violence, Matt. 11:12

John the Baptist was the herald, “EXTRA, EXTRA, Read All About It. The Message is here and has begun his CONQUEST! He is going to destroy Sin, Death, and Hell. Stamp your ticket here at the Jordan river, I’m baptizing sinners for entrance into Messiah’s kingdom.”   “Multitudes” according to the context were “pressing” to […]

The Math that Equals Fellowship with God, Philippians 4:8,9

Here we find more complex math in God’s word to exercise the frontal cortex of those endowed with “the image of God.” Us creatures who can think! Like every manufactured machine, there are no unnecessary parts; each part has a specific contribution/contributions. In this passage the Holy Spirit inspires Paul to highlight several of our body components […]

The Law of Harvest/ Coming of Age

The Law of the harvest runs throughout the Bible. The time for fruit and the inspection of its quality. The bad fruit is separated out from the good fruit. Peter is inspired to teach this coming of age process from another perspective to Jews suffering persecution from their countrymen. “Therefore, those who are ill-treated and suffer […]

The Good Life!

What’s wrong with “the good life?” Isn’t God glorified in my success? This would mean that the seed He plants is designed produce material wealth. The truth is: what we call “the good life” is really a slow death with decaying things. The real “good life” begins with seed that produces everlasting things, which don’t […]

Pray For Me

Everybody needs prayer, as a matter of fact we should always pray for each other.   But, some ministries put their disciples in a constant posture of needing prayer for the wrong things. It’s like always being hungry for fulfillment and never, never being satisfied.   With these ministries focusing on fleshly needs every week, […]

Ask of God, ask in Faith; James 1:6

Been wrestling with James 1 since a Bible study a couple of weeks ago. Because James ask us to do the impossible to “count it all joy when we fall into all kinds of soul trying situations.” What I want to focus on is the If any man lacks wisdom let him ask of God […]

God of Disasters?

First, we must keep perspective: that this life ends in death for everyone (nobody escapes). So, God’s concern is what happens to us in the end at the great judgment day. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man […]

A Lover’s Last Will and Testament

These days marriage is mostly seen as similar to a business partnership. In the Bible and real life, it is a Covenant. (This is true whether we know it or not.) Marriage is a Covenant ordained by God in the garden of Eden when he made Eve for Adam, and had plans for many children. […]
