    A Familiar Verse   A verse that most people are very familiar with is  John 15, verse 13.   In this verse, Jesus tells us something about love, and about friends;  “Greater love has no one, than this;  That one should lay down his life, for his friends.”  In the next verse, Jesus says;  “You are My friends, if you do what I command.”   And of course,…

The Poor And Meek In Spirit

May 18, 2019

    Who is “Poor” in Spirit?   Jesus said in  Mathew 5, verse 3;  “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”  I was reading in Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, and it says that “poor” means..  “to be beggarly, and destitute, and afflicted”, and that it refers to “one who is crouched in wretchedness”.   And then it says;  “It has always had a bad…

He Has Risen

A Comprehensive Study Of The Holy Spirit Of God – Part 2

February 2, 2019

    The “Role” and the “Work” of the Holy Spirit   In Part 1 of this study, we saw how the bible portrays the Holy Spirit as the “power” of God.  By the word “power”, I mean the active force that accomplishes the will of God.  For example, it was the Spirit of God (aka the Holy Spirit) who was “moving over the face of the waters” during the…
