Jesus, The H.A.N.D.S. of God

John 20:24 Now Thomas, called the Twin, one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 The other disciples therefore said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” So he said to them, “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” 26 And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to...

KJV Verse 16, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. “The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity.” ~ Leonard Ravenhill: “You can't make up for lost time. You can only do better in the future.” ~ Ashley Ormon Chronos is “Clock...


What God is Doing in You During a Pandemic

Philippians 1:6, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; 7 just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace.


Why We Give Thanks - Lesson from Giant Redwood Trees

William Barclay: “The distinguishing mark of the true Church is an abounding and overflowing gratitude. Thanksgiving is the constant and characteristic note of the Christian life.” J. B. Lightfoot: “Thanksgiving is the end of all human conduct, whether observed in words or works.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18, In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.Philippians 4:6, Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let...


A Kingdom That Cannot Be Shaken - Shine As Lights

Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; 13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. 14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding...


A Kingdom That Cannot Be Shaken: Grace to Serve

Hebrews 12:26, Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a...


Things That CANNOT BE SHAKEN When Things Shake

Hebrews 12:26, Whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a...


Justice=Righteousness & Righteousness = Justice

He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8) Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow. (Isaiah 1:17) The contexts of the words justice and judgment suggest the following: 1. One cannot preach righteousness without doing justice. 2. Justice must be done in the spirit of righteousness. 3. Authenticity is essential for one’s...

Victory Over Sin That Hides -"'Forgive Us Our Debts, as We Forgive Our Debtors"

Matthew 6:12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. Followers of Christ do not have a “sin conscience.”When you live for Christ, you are not consumed with fear of doing wrong. Hebrews 10:1 For the law, having a shadow of the good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with these same sacrifices, which they offer continually year by year, make those who approach perfect. 2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? For the worshipers, once...


Firm Foundation Bible Study - Topic: All Manner of Prayer

“Pray at all times—on every occasion, in every season—in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people).” Ephesians 6:18 Amplified (Also read Timothy 2:1-4) The Apostle Paul exhorted the Ephesians believers to pray with “all prayers" or "all manner of prayer." Prayer is certainly not a technical issue, so we don't have to fret about how we pray, so...


Rebellion: What Is It? Is it Always Wrong?

Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord, “Who take counsel, but not of Me, And who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, That they may add sin to sin; The simple definition of rebellion is: “The action or process of resisting authority...” Rebellion is a major program in every area of life and society. There are also instances were rebellion is warranted. We'll touch on that later. Rebellion is an artifact of human nature. It naturally occurs in all people, including...


"Lord Teach Us To Pray" Part Two: Daily Bread, Daily Provision.

Matt. 6:11, Give us this day our daily bread. When we see that this is a simple prayer for the needs of the everyday, we understand the following: 1 We understand that God cares for our bodies. Jesus showed us that; he spent so much time healing men's diseases and satisfying their physical hunger. 2 We understand to live one day at a time, and not to worry and be anxious about the distant and the unknown future. When Jesus taught his disciples to pray this petition, He likely remembered...


Lord, Teach Us to Pray - Part One, Your Kingdom Come, Your Will be Done.

The Model Prayer Matthew 6:5 “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you [c]openly. 7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the...
