Considering Proverbs 11:2

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. This reminds me of something Jesus said. “I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.” In Matthew Chapter 11,Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:2”

A Hypothetical Scenario for Christians: If the Tide Turned on Your Enemies

What if the tide were to turn on all of the enemies of Christianity today found within the social sphere? As a Christian, what would you do?

The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos—Let’s Try This Again

I missed an important point when considering the letter to the church of Pergamos, and it is this: thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith. I got hung up on interpreting what “Satan’s seat” means and how we see this today. However, this is not so much the trouble for Pergamos.Continue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: Pergamos—Let’s Try This Again”

Considering Proverbs 10:19-21

19 In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise. 20 The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth. 21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. I like the contrast between verse 19Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:19-21”

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. – Matthew 5:6 As Christians, our righteousness comes from the blood of Jesus first and foremost.

Oversharing?

Do I overshare my own experiences? Do I talk about myself too much? Does this distract from Jesus? Maybe at times. Am I self-serving and vain in so doing? Maybe.

What do you do, as a God-fearing Christian, when you are faced with a seemingly impossible scenario? If you go to the left, to the right, or turn back, there is sin. So, all you can do is move forward knowing that the steps you are taking are going to be painful and the endContinue reading “Sin on All Sides, Death in Front, and Peace Within”

Why I Say That I Did Not Know What Spirit I Was Of

How can a minister of Jesus be filled with His Holy Spirit and also be overcome by evil spirits? Is this even possible? Isn’t it written that those with the Spirit of God never sin, because the seed of God is in them and they cannot sin? I want to write about this because IContinue reading “Why I Say That I Did Not Know What Spirit I Was Of”

Considering Proverbs 10:17

He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth. We are all very foolish by nature—especially in terms of our lack in the wisdom of God. However, so long as we are willing to be instructed, we can be corrected by Him. If we refuse His correction, thenContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:17”
