Our Infinite God

April 4, 2020

      Words to Describe Our Infinite God   There are many words that have been used to describe our Almighty God.  “Almighty” is just one of them.  But other words are “eternal”, which in the case of God, means without beginning and without end.  And “Omniscient”, which means..  all knowing, with absolutely nothing being hidden from His awareness;  And “omnipresent”, which means, in the ultimate sense..  to be…

Our Sovereign God

April 4, 2020

    What Does Sovereign Mean ?   When I was asked what sovereign means, I had to pause a minute and think about how I would define the word.  And my first thought was “self-governing” or “self-ruling”.   I remembered the term “sovereign state” and I thought of a state that is self-governing, and under no one else’s control.  And I think of a king’s sovereignty, as referring the…

The Lord’s Day

March 28, 2020

      Does The Bible Say That Sunday Is The Lord’s Day ?   In the latest edition of the Gospel Minutes newspaper, a question was submitted by someone, concerning Christians calling Sunday, “the Lord’s day”.   They said that in the scriptures, they couldn’t find anything to verify that Sunday was called “the Lord’s day”.  And I thought that Clem Thurman gave a good answer, so I’d like…

The Last Shall Be First

March 22, 2020

    Humility and Sacrifice   In  Mathew chapter 19,  Jesus was teaching about giving things up, and taking a back seat, so to speak.  That’s the chapter where a young man came to Jesus, and he asked Jesus;  “Teacher, what GOOD THING shall I do that I may obtain eternal life?”  (Mathew 19, verse 16)  And Jesus answered, and said in  verse 17;  “Why are you asking Me about…

The Sin Of I, Me, Mine

March 20, 2020

      A Man With “I” Trouble   In  Luke chapter 12,  Jesus told a parable about a certain rich man who had “I” trouble.  Not “eye” spelled e-y-e;  But “I” as in the personal pronoun, “I”.  He was guilty of the sin, of “I, Me, Mine”.   The sin of “I, Me, Mine”, is when you’re only concerned about yourself, and not about anyone else, and especially not…

March 15, 2020

  Think About This Quote   I read a quote the other day, that I didn’t understand at first.  But then after I thought about it a while, I believe that the meaning occurred to me.  And I think that we can make application of it, in regards to our own spiritual lives. Let me read to you the quote;  “Pride is the first shirt that you put on, and…

The Promise Of God

March 14, 2020

          New Testament Promises   I’d like to read to you some of the promises that God has made to us in the new testament. First, there’s this promise from  Romans 8, verse 28.   And I think this is the favorite verse of a lot of people, because it’s such a great promise.  Here it is..  “And we know, that God causes all things to…

The Glory Of Your Spirit

March 6, 2020

            Think About the Glory of Your Spirit..   Think about the glory of your spirit, and the glory of every Christian’s spirit.  Most people spend far too much time thinking about the glory of their appearance, but spend very little time thinking about the glory of their spirit.  But everyone is born with a glorious spirit. God said in  Genesis 1, verse 26;  “Let…

Lucifer

February 22, 2020

  Who is Lucifer ?   If you asked a hundred people,  “Who is Lucifer?”  Probably ninety-nine of them would say that Lucifer is satan.  But that’s not what the bible says.  The King James Bible, and several other versions, use the word “Lucifer”, one time, and that one time is in  Isaiah 14, verse 12.  Some of the other English versions of the bible use the words “shinning one”, …

What’s Your Anger Type ?

February 12, 2020

  What Your Anger Says About You   I read a comment recently that made me stop and think.  The comment suggested that the things which make us angry, say a lot about us, as human beings, and as Christians.  And I realized that there’s a lot of truth in that statement, especially for the Christian.  Christians have no business feeling angry, about a lot of the things that we…

The Scepter Of Righteousness

January 29, 2020

      The Scepter of the Kingdom of God   Consider if you would, the words of  Hebrews 1, verse 8;  “..And the scepter of righteousness, is the scepter of Thy kingdom.” A scepter is basically a rod, or a staff;  However a scepter is almost always an ornamented staff, or a decorated staff, that a king or an emperor would carry in his hands, especially on ceremonial occasions. …

What Is The Spirit, Of Your Spirit ?

    Does your Spirit Possess the Proper Spirit ?   In 1968, Kenny Rogers was with a group called The First Edition, and they recorded a song called “I Just Dropped In, To See What Condition My Condition Was In”.   And that became the chorus of the song..  “To see what condition my condition was in”. I suppose maybe you’d call that, a play-on-words, and the reason that I…

      How Are Christians Anointed ?   This morning I want to finish my talk on the subject of anointing.  Last week I talked about the meanings of the word “anoint”, or “anointed”.   Do you remember what those meanings are?   “Anointed” means to be chosen by God, and it means to be accepted by God, and it means to be appointed by God, and to be…
