The Book Of Jude

February 15, 2020

      The Book of Jude, A Letter From God   Verse 1;  “Jude, servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James;  To those loved by God, even called and guarded in Jesus Christ.”  That might be just slightly different from the wording in your bible, but that is the most literal translation of the verse.  “..To those loved by God, even called and guarded in Jesus Christ.”  Instead…

James 5, Verses 13 thru 20

January 19, 2020

Concerning James 5, Verses 13 thru 20   Verse 13  introduces a new subject matter, from the previous verses.  James had been talking about those who trust in their riches, instead of trusting in God.  And he had been talking about how the rich sometimes persecute the poor.  And he talked about being patient, and waiting on the Lord, to receive the Lord’s blessings.  And he talked about treating one…

1 Peter Chapter 2, Verses 1 Thru 3

September 28, 2019

    Putting Away Sin, And Longing for the Word   Verses 1 & 2;  “Putting away therefore, all wickedness, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, as newborn babes, long for the spiritual milk, which is without guile, that you may grow thereby unto salvation..” Those verses remind me of  James 1, verse 21.  Listen to the similarity.  James says;  “Wherefore, putting away all filthiness,…

March 24, 2019

  A Study of The Book of Acts;  The Acts of the Apostles Welcome to our study of the book of Acts.  The proper title should probably be, “The Acts of the Apostles”, because that’s really what the book tells of.  It tells of the various things which the apostles of Jesus Christ did, from the time that Jesus ascended back to heaven, until the end of the apostle Paul’s…
