KEEP IT SIMPLE

Why is it that people delight in making even the simplest thing complicated?  Why, I believe if you gave engineers the task of making a square block, they could make a two thousand step operation out of it. And in doing so, there would be at least a thousand places where a defect could occur.  Let me give you a recent example. Continue Reading »

THE PRICE OF ANXIETY

Worry and anxiety are subjects that I have over 40 years of experience with, so that makes me an expert of sorts, doesn’t it?  However, admittedly my experience is somewhat out of date, because when I came to the LORD in 1993, He invited me to cast my cares upon Him, so I did.  Simple, huh?  Don’t you wish everything was this easy?

HOW TO HAVE PEACE

Today’s article is for people who continually live under stress.  There are many things that rob our peace and cause frustration in our lives.  One of the big ones involves time,  Funny how everyone has 24 hours in their day, yet many say “they just don’t have enough time” to do all they need (or THINK) they need to do.  Have you noticed how time is speeding up?

NEVER GIVE UP!

The expression “never give up” is about as old as the hills, but it’s some of the best advice ever heard.  All of us face difficulties in our lives, and without doubt many times we have given up on something, or at least wanted to.  Today I’d like to talk about that. Continue Reading »

BY FAITH

We hear a great deal in the Bible about faith, and we know it is impossible to please God without faith.  But hearing about faith and actually acting upon it is an entirely different thing altogether.  It is written in Hebrews 10:38, Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Living by faith; exactly what does that mean?  Living by faith is not just an occasional thing, but a continual action that involves stepping continually into the unknown.  It’s like having three doors before you and having to choose only one. Each door has something entirely different behind it, and the doors are not labeled. One has a hungry lion behind it, one has everything you normally expect from life, and the other has a new adventure you’ve never been on or even thought of before. Now choose one… Continue Reading »

JUST THE FACTS

There used to be a TV show called “Dragnet” about a policeman named Joe Friday whose catchphrase was “Just the facts”. In the course of his investigation there were often theories about this or that, but he wasn’t interested in theories, “just the facts”.  Well, that’s me.  As you know, I teach about a lot of Bible subjects, but mostly about healing.  And do you know what?  I don’t give a hoot about anyone’s theory about this or that, all I’m interested in are the FACTS!  Everywhere I go there are people who think this or that about the Bible, and yes, I do too, BUT what we think doesn’t count.  What DOES count is what the Bible says, for it contains the sum knowledge of what is revealed by God to mankind.  Yes, the Holy Spirit speaks to believers, but what He says ALWAYS agrees with the written Word of God.  And what about the times when the “voice of the Holy Spirit” doesn’t agree with the Word, such as “NEW REVELATION?  Pitch it.

IN DUE TIME

Today while seeking the LORD what to write about, I heard in the Spirit, “in due time”.  Now, what did He mean by that?  Was He telling me He is busy and He will get back to me later about it?  No, because He ALWAYS tells me what to write as soon as I ask.  Rather, He gave me the subject matter.  It seemed logical to find everything the Bible has to say about “in due time”, so here are the verses.  Allow me to comment on each: Continue Reading »

BELIEVE NOW, RECEIVE NOW

“I will believe it when I see it.” We have all heard that one before, haven’t we?  But do you know that conflicts with the Bible? Continue Reading »

YEA, HATH GOD SAID?

All of our troubles started way back there in the Garden of Eden several thousand years ago, and you’d think by now we would have solved the problems, but not so.  Here in Genesis 3:1-6 we can read about it::
Gen 3:1  Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Gen 3:2  And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
Gen 3:3  But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
Gen 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
Gen 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Gen 3:6  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

GOLD, SILVER, PRECIOUS STONES, WOOD, HAY AND STUBBLE

When studying in 1 Corinthians 3 this week, it became obvious the LORD was building upon the last few weeks of my previous articles.  Over the years the teachings of the original disciples has been altered, watered down, or downright changed. Keep in mind what Paul said in Galatians 1:6- 9.  And we wonder why we don’t see the power of the Gospel of Christ Jesus working these days like it did then? Continue Reading »
