Considering Proverbs 10:13-14

13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction. When I read these verses, I’m thankful that we serve a patient God. How often haveContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:13-14”

The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged

How long has it been since our Lord, Jesus, ascended into heaven? How many men since that time have made judgements concerning the teachings of Jesus and the way a Christian aught to live out their faith? Many men—in Christ there is no male or female, so for simplicity’s sake, I say men—have made judgements.Continue reading “The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged”

What Happens When a Christian Dies and How This Teaching Affects Our View of The Resurrection

What Happens When a Christian Dies? Originally Posted on January 31, 2019 by Amanda at kindlingtruth.com Side note: This article is a good explanation of the resurrection in terms of what we experience as Christians pertaining to the resurrection bodily. I intend to write an article that considers the present-day experience of the resurrection spiritually, whichContinue reading “What Happens When a Christian Dies and How This Teaching Affects Our View of The Resurrection”

It is the Father’s Good Pleasure to Give You the Kingdom

When we receive from God, either from our brethren or from the Spirit of God, it feels like robbery. We know that we do not deserve it. Sometimes we might feel ashamed, or maybe even a bit afraid when the Lord has given us more than we feel able to be faithful towards. I don’tContinue reading “It is the Father’s Good Pleasure to Give You the Kingdom”

From the Mouth of Babes: You Can’t Serve God and Money

I want to share something that one of my sons shared with me, because I do believe this to be from the Lord, Jesus. I’ll be the first to admit to feeling appalled when I see people putting their kids on display for their so-called religious encounters. Some seem—based on the content alone–to be highlyContinue reading “From the Mouth of Babes: You Can’t Serve God and Money”

The Spirit of God is Meekness…Not Weakness

Yesterday I wrote that Christians should not trust in “Egypt,” but in the Spirit of God. We should “wait on Him.” Waiting on the Lord, Jesus means that we serve Him. In order to serve Jesus, we need to know who He is. We need to have a relationship with Him. We need to beContinue reading “The Spirit of God is Meekness…Not Weakness”

The Desolation of the UK

The title is meant to provoke thought. I can’t make any certain claim, but things seem to be going in a very “desolate” direction. A few days ago, we rung in the new year, and it was sad to see empty streets. Lifeless. Desolate. I just heard about extreme lockdown measures that are being imposedContinue reading “The Desolation of the UK”

Bruised Reeds and Smoking Flax

The mercy of the Lord, Jesus is an incredible thing. His patience. His compassion. His wisdom. He knows how to deal with the vulnerable. As it is written of Him, “a bruised reed shall he not break, and a smoking flax shall he not quench.” When we are barely hanging on to the faith, HeContinue reading “Bruised Reeds and Smoking Flax”

Considering Proverbs 10:11

The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. This is similar to Proverbs 10:6 — Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. As Christians who seek to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ,Continue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:11”

Delivered to Satan

You might be familiar with the time Paul the apostle wrote about delivering someone to Satan. If not, you can look it up. This is something I believed to be warranted when Christians abuse the written word of God and the blood of Jesus who is the Word of God. When we knowingly misuse theContinue reading “Delivered to Satan”
