The 7 Churches of Revelation: Important Point on the Best Perspective of Interpretation

Before I get into the scriptures concerning the 7 churches of Revelation, I want to clarify something about the proper perspective when considering these churches. I will later amend the introduction article so that it includes this point. Some say that the churches represent a progression of the apostacy. I do not see it thatContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Important Point on the Best Perspective of Interpretation”

Tarry in Jerusalem

 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessedContinue reading “Tarry in Jerusalem”

Considering Proverbs 11:1

A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight. What is a false balance, and why is this an abomination to the Lord? Let’s say someone is selling a product by pound. You buy a pound at the agreed upon price, but unbeknownst to you, the seller gave you slightlyContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:1”

Many Honor God with Their Lips and Not Their Heart

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” In a recent post, I said that our words matter because they testify to God and to man what is in our hearts. I try to meditate on the things I write so that I can catch errors or explain more fully things that IContinue reading “Many Honor God with Their Lips and Not Their Heart”

The Pain Behind the Pride

I see it. The pain behind your pride. I see it because this was me too. I’m sure there are traces remaining. How strange it was to discover that I had pride. I was always so insecure. Then I realized, pride and insecurity are good friends. Insecurity seeks to be relieved through pride, but prideContinue reading “The Pain Behind the Pride”

Jesus Wept Over Jerusalem

37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall notContinue reading “Jesus Wept Over Jerusalem”

Weaning Babies is Hard

I just put my 20 month old to bed after his last nursing session. For good this time. Weaning breastfed babies is hard. They cry. They don’t understand why you no longer provide that for them–the comfort and nourishment that you have provided since birth. It’s confusing, frustrating, and frightening. It’s hard on mother too.Continue reading “Weaning Babies is Hard”

The Righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees

For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. – Matthew 5:19-20 What is the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, and why does their righteousness ban them from the kingdom of heaven? There areContinue reading “The Righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees”

“He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” Who is he?

2 Thessalonians 2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.Continue reading ““He who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” Who is he?”

Exercising in Righteous Judgment

Originally posted on June 6, 2018 at KindlingTruth.com Should a Christian be judgmental? We hear it all the time, “judge not that you be not judged.” As Christians, we are commanded to judge, but we are to be careful in the judgments we make with an understanding that “with what judgment you judge, you willContinue reading “Exercising in Righteous Judgment”
