Seed That Fell Upon Stony Places

5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away (Matthew 13:5-6). 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same isContinue reading “Seed That Fell Upon Stony Places”

The Father is Wise in Hiding His Son from Us

Before I received the Holy Spirit, I remember thinking that if I had the Spirit of God within me, then I would have Jesus with me all the time and I would not feel alone anymore. Feeling alone in this world has been a constant for most of my life, and I assume that theContinue reading “The Father is Wise in Hiding His Son from Us”

These Things Saith He – Scripture for Sardis

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for withoutContinue reading “These Things Saith He – Scripture for Sardis”

What is Distracting You from Jesus?

How do we develop “ears to hear?” Jesus says that if we seek, we will find. He speaks to us by the Holy Spirit, but we have to become practiced at this because it can be difficult to hear that “still small voice” and learn to discern His voice from our own. If we continueContinue reading “What is Distracting You from Jesus?”

These Things Saith He – Overcoming Sardis

And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. 2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for IContinue reading “These Things Saith He – Overcoming Sardis”

Lessons from Ananias and Saphira

FIVE UNPOPULAR TEACHINGS OF JESUS — Beloved Creative Studio

God purposed us to be His. He loves you! Nothing terribly unpopular here (everyone likes to be loved), but for everyone who has believed in Jesus for their justification before God, by the blood of Christ, He desires you to now be set apart. This is where the rubber meets the road. You are His… FIVEContinue reading “FIVE UNPOPULAR TEACHINGS OF JESUS — Beloved Creative Studio”

Considering Proverbs 11:13

A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter. Several ideas come to mind for me when I read this proverb. The first is perhaps the most obvious. When someone entrusts a person with confidential information, a faithful person will keep the information hidden while an unfaithful person willContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:13”

Some Thoughts on Matthew 12

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”

The 7 Churches of Revelation: My Sardis Experience

Since I write some hard things, I cannot do so without also considering myself and putting that out there. How have I been as Sardis? According to my understanding of the Church of Sardis, we are dealing with misconceptions and negligence of the Holy Spirit, which leads to a church that claims to be aliveContinue reading “The 7 Churches of Revelation: My Sardis Experience”
