THE WAY IT IS

We’ve all heard the expression, “that’s the way it is”. So whatever it is you’re talking about, you just accept it as that and drop it. That is, unless you’re like I am. I like to study deeper into things and get to the bottom of the matter. Now, while I appreciate the hard work and research of others, there’s still nothing like searching a matter out for yourself, so you are satisfied every stone has been turned over, every “I” dotted and every “t” crossed. Else, how are you going to stand up when the circumstances point contrary to what everyone else believes?

THE POWER OF OUR WORDS

Have you ever really paid attention to your own words? The Lord Jesus said in Mark 11:23,
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS

What is the main thing we got by Christ Jesus going to the cross? It is the forgiveness of our sins, past, present, and future. Due to our receiving Christ Jesus as LORD and Savior, sin is no longer imputed against us. Without forgiveness of our sins, we have absolutely no hope of everlasting life. The Bible is very clear about that, AND, it is also very clear that we must in turn forgive everyone who has sinned against US. Continue Reading »

NO COMPROMISE

Whenever we want to make a deal with someone, we must be willing to compromise. An example of that would be if you are trying to buy a car from someone and they want $10,000 for it. You look the car over and decide, yes, you want it, but you’re only willing to give $8,000 for it. Would you walk away, or would you make your $8,000 offer for it? Well, if you wanted it, you would offer the seller what you decided, and he could either take it, or refuse. We will say he was willing to compromise with you for $9,000 and you felt you could do that, so you made the deal. And that’s the way we usually do business. We don’t always get what we want, so we have to compromise. How does that way of doing things work with God?

THE LAMB OF GOD

Normally, I post my weekly newsletter on Friday, but I’m doing it a day early this week because it’s a special day.

Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus of Nazareth is often referred to as the Lamb of God, and for a very good reason: He was sacrificed to take away the sins of the world. In the Old Testament, Passover was initiated the evening the Israelites were told by Moses that the LORD was going to pass through Egypt and destroy the firstborn male of every animal and household where the blood of the Passover lamb was not on the lintel and doorpost. In other words, if He saw the blood, He would “pass over”, and there would be no death. The scriptures are in Exodus 12: This is an abbreviated account for the sake of time and room for this article.

IF WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST


If we are the Body of Christ, and He is our head, why is there so much disunity in the Body? Now we know our natural body has many functions, each interdependent upon the others. The Bible has somewhat to say about this in 1 Corinthians 12. The entire chapter is useful here, but for the lack of room, we will use verses 12-17. It would be good if you go back and read the whole chapter.

SPRING IS HERE

Springtime is upon us, and it’s my favorite time of the year. It means flowers pushing up out of the ground, trees getting their leaves back, the grass starts growing again, and it’s a time of new hope and renewal. Spring means new life and hope. But what about those who have no hope, or have given up hope that things will ever change and be better? Spring happens each year whether you have hope or not, because God set things up that way.

SAFE WITH THE LORD

Have you ever been to the circus? One of the attractions there is usually a tightrope walker. He or she would climb high up to a rope or a wire stretched between two poles, and the idea is to safely walk from one end to the other without falling. Nearly everyone wants to make a hit in life, everyone but the tightrope walker, that is. He or she prefers just to get there safely.

CHOOSE YOUR POSITION

There’s a battle going on for your soul right now in the spiritual realm, and whether you like it or not, you are going to take a stand. You may think you don’t have any choice in the matter, but the truth is, you do. You can choose to be an overcomer in Christ Jesus, or you can choose to hunker down and hope for the best as the battle rages around you. It isn’t a matter IF you will be attacked by the devil, but WHEN. So you must choose your position. Continue Reading »
