Experiences and emotions can cloud our vision and dull our hearing of what the Lord is speaking by His Spirit, so it is good to consider ourselves so that we can get to know the will of Jesus better and repent of misconceptions and false things spoken in His Name. The articles I wrote recentlyContinue reading “Some Thoughts on Matthew 12”

Fellow Students Instead of Superiors
Approaching our brethren as fellow students of Jesus and the Apostles and not as their superiors opens communication. If you have a Christian blog or some other form of educational/exhorting/edifying public ministry, then you probably have something to share. That’s good. I have things to share too. I was just thinking about the way weContinue reading “Fellow Students Instead of Superiors”
What if She Had Taken the Time to Share Jesus With Me?
Have you ever encountered someone that seemed too steeped in sin to care about taking Christianity seriously? This evening I’ve been thinking about someone I have not thought about in a long time–someone who probably thought that I was too steeped in sin to care about taking Christianity seriously. This was a co-worker of mine.Continue reading “What if She Had Taken the Time to Share Jesus With Me?”
Paul the Apostle told the Corinthians to “covet the greater gifts.” I certainly don’t want to discourage anyone from seeking gifts of the Spirit. However, I cannot help but think about something else that is true, and that is the fact that all things will one day pass away as they make room for theContinue reading “Covet Christ”
Murder As Defined By Jesus: Part 1
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to hisContinue reading “Murder As Defined By Jesus: Part 1”
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”
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.”
Repent and do the First Works!
“Enough!” This word strongly filled my mind on Friday, May 14, 2021. I’ve heard the Lord’s voice audibly before, but this is not common—and it does not make me a special Christian—many others have heard Him too, and so can all who seek Him. “Enough!” This single word jolted me out of a mindset thatContinue reading “Repent and do the First Works!”
Breaking Through the Babble
When mankind works together, we begin to make too much of ourselves. We think we can reach heaven. We think we, being man, can make ourselves like God. So, God divides us. He breaks down our communication. This is good for us. This is also our undoing. We are prideful, selfish, and murderous by nature.Continue reading “Breaking Through the Babble”
They Cannot Censor God
If you are a Christian and you are given something to say in the name of Jesus, they CANNOT censor you. Sure, they will censor you for a time, but the Lord of Heaven will not allow this to stand. “He that sits in the heavens shall laugh.” In their attempts to shut you up,Continue reading “They Cannot Censor God”
