My Experience of Receiving the Holy Spirit

I know that the topic of receiving the Holy Spirit is one of contention among Christians, and I understand why. I don’t think we have to experience the same things, and to judge each other according to our experiences with the Holy Spirit leads to a lot of unnecessary accusations. I want to write moreContinue reading “My Experience of Receiving the Holy Spirit”

Considering Proverbs 10:6

Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. What does this mean? Those who do justly receive blessing from God. That makes sense. What about, “violence covers the mouth of the wicked?” Does this mean that the wicked will have their mouth stopped violently? Does this meanContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:6”

The Hour of Temptation

What happens when you expose someone who is as a “white-washed tomb filled with dead man’s bones?” Sometimes they might rage at you in attempts to scare you off so that you will back down. Sometimes they polish their tomb so that it is as white and bright as possible, so that they can continueContinue reading “The Hour of Temptation”

Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)

Faith is fundamental for any Christian. Our salvation hinges on faith, and yet I wonder how much we truly understand what a “faith-based” life really means. What change might we experience if we really took hold of our faith? I want to spend some time considering faith. Jesus tells us that even faith as aContinue reading “Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains (Complete Series)”

Considering Proverbs 10:2

2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death. As Christians, we know that the only righteousness that will deliver us from death is the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Our own righteousness is not enough and never will be. As Christians, we also know that there is nothing we can do to earn theContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:2”

What Matters Most

In times of confusion, strife, and division, it can be easy to lose sight of what matters most. Today, I am going to republish two posts from my former website, kindlingtruth.com.

The Problem with Kings–We are the Four Horsemen

This was originally posted on October 4, 2019 on my first website, http://www.kindlingtruth.com I abandoned that project for a few reasons, and I’ve been thinking about that decision lately.
