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 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?

This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him.

Jesus said that false prophets would rise, and all the more once His Day approaches. He was right. There are many who want to be prophets, but instead of waiting on the Lord, they force the issue. Let me give you some clues about the false prophets today. First off, they like to use theContinue reading “This is My Beloved Son. Hear Him.”

Tarry in Jerusalem

 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass, while he blessedContinue reading “Tarry in Jerusalem”

Covet Christ

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”

I Would Rather Be Weak in Flesh and Strong in Spirit

Maybe this is the fever that has wracked my mind today talking, or the maybe it’s many weeks without adequate rest, or perhaps it is the heart issue I’ve had since childhood that seems to be taking its toll on my body. Maybe it is the years of mental anguish. Or, maybe it is heartacheContinue reading “I Would Rather Be Weak in Flesh and Strong in Spirit”
