No Prophet Is Accepted In His Own Country

Early in the earthly ministry of Jesus, the Lord addressed a problem that hindered some from accepting the truth. After teaching in Galilee, the Bible records, “And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for

God And Mammon

It is important to realize that God will not accept being secondary in any person’s life. The “first and great commandment” is to “…love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” (Matt. 22:37). Yet, so many individuals have little to no time for God

He Did It Anyway

It is incredibly disappointing to know that so many people are either ignorant or have been taught incorrectly about the death of Jesus. Believe it or not, you might even encounter some who claim that Jesus did not realize why He came to Earth. Let me state, before I go any further, that Jesus knew

A Messianic Psalm

As many already know, the book of Psalms is a great study to endeavor. There are so many different things about God and His will that are revealed in those Psalms. One in particular is going to be examined for this article. The 22nd Psalm is known as a messianic psalm. The reason for that

Born Again

John chapter three is one of the most referenced segments of Scripture in all of the Bible.  Of course it contains the familiar verse, John 3:16, but there is much more in that chapter than just that one verse.  At the beginning of the chapter we are introduced to a Pharisee named Nicodemus.  Nicodemus came

Being Like Jesus

Have you ever thought about what the world would be like if everyone thought and acted like Jesus?  Imagine the kindness that would be shown.  Imagine the love that would be demonstrated.  Imagine the peacefulness that would exist.  While there are some individuals that have no interest in thinking and acting like Jesus, there are

What The Speaker Said

            The speaker said, “All you have to do is believe on Jesus to go to heaven.” When I heard this I thought, this man does not know what he is saying. Why? Because he believes that all one has to do is believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he or

All Things New

Jesus said, “And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.” Revelation 21:5.  Every person likes new things. Having new things keeps our economy moving. We often become bored with the old things and buy new ones.

Every Idle Word

Jesus said, “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I

Christ Gives Peace

The Word of God says, “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. And when he had so said, he
