Fear is a Form of Worship

I don’t always fear God as I should. This is especially true when I begin to exalt my fears as being higher and mightier forces in my life than God Himself. I was talking with a loved one yesterday about this cycle I tend to go through. I have a lot of responsibilities in thisContinue reading “Fear is a Form of Worship”

“Mother Earth” Isn’t Angry.

God is. Thanks be to God, that the anger of God is not as the anger of Man. All things are under His full knowledge and control…even the so-called whims and rage of “Mother Earth.” He is not surprised by anything nor is He undermined by any plan that Man has in store. Neither isContinue reading ““Mother Earth” Isn’t Angry.”

Determining Salvation Issues: “These Things Saith He”

These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Reflect, Discuss, and Expect a Revival

There is a wealth of understanding for us in the letters of Jesus to the 7 churches of Revelation and in the Book of Revelation in totality–a book that reveals Jesus, the nature of the true church, the nature of the unfaithful church, and the results both can expect.

The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Was a Lukewarm Laodicean Too

There is none like Jesus. He is worthy of our full devotion, yet we often take Him for granted. I know I did. Sometimes I think about the years I wasted and I regret it. Sometimes I think about choices I made that hinder my ability to serve Him even now as I’d like to.Continue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Was a Lukewarm Laodicean Too”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Laodicea

14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; 15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither coldContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Laodicea”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Have Fallen Short of Philadelphia’s Patience Too

When I first read about the 7 churches of Revelation seriously, one of the first things that stood out to me about Philadelphia was their keeping to the “word of the Lord’s patience.” Patience is not a virtue I naturally possess, and I still seek Jesus to cultivate more patience within me. Because of myContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: I Have Fallen Short of Philadelphia’s Patience Too”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Philadelphia

7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, andContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Philadelphia”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Ephesus

Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hastContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Ephesus”

We Are Not Alone When Jesus is With Us

“The hour is coming, and is now come, when you shall be scattered. Every man to his own and shall leave me alone, and yet I am not alone because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken to you, that in me you might have peace.” (John 16) Isolation is a hardContinue reading “We Are Not Alone When Jesus is With Us”
