Determining Salvation Issues: “These Things Saith He”

These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Considering Proverbs 11:1

A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight. What is a false balance, and why is this an abomination to the Lord? Let’s say someone is selling a product by pound. You buy a pound at the agreed upon price, but unbeknownst to you, the seller gave you slightlyContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 11:1”

Many Honor God with Their Lips and Not Their Heart

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” In a recent post, I said that our words matter because they testify to God and to man what is in our hearts.

Considering Proverbs 10:30

30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.

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”

Considering Proverbs 2:9-15

9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. 10 When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; 11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: 12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; 13 Who leave the pathsContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 2:9-15”
