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”

You Want to Fight for God? Get the Beam out of Your Own Eye First.

There are some who can be very gung-ho about going after “false” Christians, the Great Whore of Mystery Babylon, going on Spirit of Jezebel witch hunts, and the like. In one sense, those who are faithful to the word of God and the teachings of the gospel of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ as givenContinue reading “You Want to Fight for God? Get the Beam out of Your Own Eye First.”

Clarification and Comparison Between the Satanic and Saintly: Sitting with Jesus in His Throne

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. – Revelation 3:21 I’ve referenced this a few times recently, and I think clarification is in order. I’ve been thinking for a while now about theContinue reading “Clarification and Comparison Between the Satanic and Saintly: Sitting with Jesus in His Throne”

For the Glory of the Father in Heaven

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they mayContinue reading “For the Glory of the Father in Heaven”

Jesus is Near the Broken Ones. So are the Wolves.

One thing I love about Jesus is His love for the weak. Those who know that they are sinners, those who know that they are lost in this world, those who are not content with this life, those who want to know God and always feel a lack, no matter how much of God theyContinue reading “Jesus is Near the Broken Ones. So are the Wolves.”

My Troubles with Trusting God

I said that I would write an article about my problems with trusting in Jesus, and I want to. I’m not sure how to go about it, so this is another impromptu. It’s the best way I know how do to these things. Sorry in advance if this gets a little messy. I know thatContinue reading “My Troubles with Trusting God”
