2 Timothy 2:14 “Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.” “Remind everyone about these things, and command them in God’s presence to stop fighting over words. Such arguments are useless, and they can ruin […]
Sometime ago in eternity past, a meeting was convened in the heavenlies, and going by the records we have, it was a closed door meeting between the three highest, strongest, wisest and closest persons (Genesis 1:26). The Oneness that exists between these three defies the capacity of language and description. And because language relies on […]
1 Peter 2:24 KJV Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. Man has no solution for his predicament. He is helpless, hopeless and in most cases, recklessly so. He argues his own […]
Philemon 1:6 KJV (Empahsis mine) “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the ACKNOWLEDGING of EVERY GOOD THING which is IN you IN Christ Jesus.” Once you come to the LORD Jesus to be saved, you are, henceforth, legally one with Him, the acknowledging of which brings you into your rest in […]

And this is not just beginner’s class stuff, it is the very essence of the Christian life. We must never again descend to human philosophy and works; we must allow Christ to live His life freely and fully in us, gratefully living in the New covenant.
What does it mean for something to be biblical? First, it is not just that it is in the bible. This is one major way the devil sponsors false teachings. Remember that he used the very Scriptures to tempt Jesus. And my LORD didn’t just say, “oh yes, that’s in the bible, I’ll do it, […]
There is a work resulting from grace The point that is critical for us to raise is that works does not have to be a nullification of grace. We are certain and assured of the fact that God is fully responsible for the New Life we received in Christ Jesus. There is nothing of man […]
For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2 Timothy 1:12 (KJV) Emphasis mine “…Have ye not read…?” More and more as I read the scriptures, I […]
