“Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” Psalm 100:3 For the last few years, I have had small flocks of chickens to provide us with eggs. The current flock is the first we Read More
“A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:8 Squirrels have a high “squashed” rate. Perhaps they are excited by the load of nuts they are carrying or anxiety about getting more, but their indecisions when crossing a road often get them killed by cars whizzing down the road the little Read More
According to Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language, an “abomination” is an “extreme hatred, a detestation”. As harsh as that label is, there are many things that the Word of God defines as an abomination to God. It may surprise the “God is love” crowd when they discover there are things that Read More
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36 Also: John 8:32. In an attempt to retrieve an escaped rooster, I set out a live trap in hopes of retrieving him. In the morning I was surprised to see that I did not trap the escapee, but in his Read More
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Prov. 22:6 The Bible clearly gives the responsibility of rearing children to the child's parents. If the parents are Christians then their duty also includes raising their offspring to love, honor, and obey the Lord. Read More
There was a time when a person's words were trustworthy and binding. Most assumed when someone spoke that it was the truth they were speaking. Written contracts were not that common; as once a person gave his word and shook hands on the matter, it was most likely as good as done. When someone Read More
We seldom think of the future consequences of our sin. Too often we do what gratifies us for the moment, and do not consider what our iniquities will cost us in the future. However, there is usually “fruit” from our sin, and quite often it is “rotten”. Most of the time we reap sin's havoc Read More
I have been asked several times, “How do you know there is a God?” Even recently I was questioned about this by an atheist. Although some claim to have seen God, their testimonies often do not align with the Bible. Often their story changes when questioned. From what the Bible says, no one will see Read More
The slandering brand of being labeled a “homophobic,” an “irrational hatred or fear of homosexuals or homosexuality,” is being used to force civilization into accepting the homosexual sexual behavior. No one wants to be labeled differently, so the “politically-correct marketing” tool of attacking a normal person by making them appear odd or different has greatly Read More
It has been very easy to encourage those in sickness, trials, or even facing death that “It will be alright. Get close to the Lord, and He will help you through the valley you are facing.” Although I really believe that, I always wondered when it is my time to face death, severe trials, Read More
I have been very blessed since I have been saved. The churches I have been a member of for the last 37 years are good, KJV, separated, Bible-believing churches. From those pulpits, and my own consistent studying, I have learned much about and from the Bible. After dealing with people for many years, I have Read More
Excerpts from Jonathan Edwards 1741 Sermon that encouraged many to be saved and altered many lives. The God that holds you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider or some loathsome insect over the fire, abhors you, and is dreadfully provoked. His wrath towards you burns like fire; he looks upon Read More
Several glass walk-bridges have been constructed. Some of the most famous ones are found in the Hubei Province in China. The longest is 1,600 feet long and spans a 715-foot chasm. Many visitors to the bridge enjoy looking down through the glass panels to see all that is below them through the clear structure. It Read More
There is a lot of “religion” in this world, but little that worships the one true God His way. Some worship multiple “gods”. Some religions even claim to worship the one God that created them, and that controls this world; but a quick glimpse into their teachings show they are in direct violation of what Read More
As Moses led the people of Israel away from their bondage in Egypt and to the land God had promised them, they were not alone. God escorted them. He manifested Himself by a pillar of cloud by day. At night, He made His presence known as a pillar of fire. “And the LORD went before Read More
All Christians are called to be obedient to God's calling; be it to be saved, baptized, tithe, cease a certain sin, or to do something He has laid on one's heart to do. Too often, excuses are used to wiggle out of what one has been burdened to do. Moses made such an excuse. He Read More
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13 Several years ago, I witnessed a perfect example of how God can use us and help us overcome even severe problems: A Wednesday night audience was anticipating hearing from a speaker representing a ministry to the handicapped. After the man was announced, the Read More
After Moses received his orders from God to lead Israel out of bondage, his faith was quickly tested. So that the soon-to-be leader could prove to those he would guide that he was sent by God, he was asked to perform a very strange miracle. Moses was asked to take his ordinary walking staff and Read More
Joseph, in Genesis, had many undeserved ordeals in his young life. He was hated by his brothers. They sold him into slavery. where he was later jailed. Finally, however, the hardships he experienced were turned to triumphs. He was made the second ruler under the mighty Pharaoh and was eventually able to help save Egypt Read More
During the Christmas season, many of the traditional songs are played. One of the most popular is “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”. It was written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespe and was first aired in 1934. Many of the modern beliefs about Santa originate from this song. Although most adults certainly know Read More
Praise is bestowing compliments “on a person for his personal virtues or worthy actions …”, as Noah Webster explained it. Psalms is the praise book of the Bible with the word “praise” mentioned 132 times. It is very important to God, and should be to us, to praise God for all the wonderful things He Read More
“Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4 Enter into Read More
“Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” Acts 12:5 Peter's future did not look too promising as he lay in a dark, dank prison cell.

Too often a Bible verse is selected to prove a point or doctrine without understanding what it is really talking about. The context of the verse is often ignored. Because previous, or following verses, that inform more fully what the Scripture is about are not heeded, Scripture is often misunderstood. Not understanding the context of Read More
