  • Vicious

    Indeed, this is what the Lord says: “Even the captives of the mighty man will be taken away, And the prey of a tyrant will be rescued; For I will contend with the one who contends with you, And I will save your sons” Isaiah 49:25 There is a vicious enemy to the human race, and especially to those […]

  • Seeking Perfection

    “You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect” Matthew 5:48 This is a tall order! Is Yeshua really telling us to be perfect, especially in this broken world and body? How can any of us attain perfection or even be like God? This scripture should really cause us to stop and ponder. Jesus is […]

  • To Abandon Wisdom

    “Like a muddied spring or a polluted well is a righteous person who gives way before the wicked”. proverbs 25:26 Here is a rhetorical question. What happens when we look the other way as a wrongful act or crime is being committed? Faced with these situations, self-preservation may take priority over any other options before […]

  • A Holy Nation

    “Righteousness makes a nation great, but sin degrades any people” proverbs 15:34 America has a problem – sin! We like to talk about how we are the greatest nation on earth; the greatest nation that ever existed and how we are a Christian nation. We boast about our military might, wealth, and democratic values. We […]

  • What is Good, What is Bad, What is True, What is False!

    “Loved ones, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see if they are from God. For many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). The desire to know more was part of the lure that led to the fall in the Garden of Eden, and with it, the knowledge of good and […]

  • What is Truth?

    Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” After he said this, he went out again to the Judean leaders. He said to them, “I find no case against Him” John 18:38 By all accounts, Pontius Pilate was not a righteous man, but he was at least interested in the truth and in declaring that he found no […]

  • Spiritual Examination

    Psalm 26: A Psalm of David.  Vindicate me, O Lord, For I have walked in my integrity. I have also trusted in the Lord; I shall not slip. 2 Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; Try my mind and my heart. 3 For Your lovingkindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. 4 I have not sat with idolatrous mortals, Nor will I go in with hypocrites. 5 I have […]

  • The Usurper

    “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive”. (John 5:43) It is difficult not to come to the conclusion that the Church in America has abdicated its authority to political usurpers who feed on it for political gain; like […]

  • Unrighteous Zealots

    “Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of your words”. (Proverbs 23:9) In my devotional reading this morning, Dr. Adam Dooley of Dauphin Way Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama commented that “Believers should neither feel obligated to nor responsible for those who hate the truth.” Dr. Dooley […]

  • Immerse Yourself In Scripture

    There is a flood of information coming our way on a hourly basis and much of it is very convincing. But is that information all true? The enemy deceives us with partial truths and the only way to counter these attacks is to know the truth. We do this by immersing ourselves in scripture and prayer […]
