What People Need

The bible says it’s the goodness of God that leads men to repentance.

I remember one morning I arrived at work excited after seeing something I felt was from the Holy Spirit. I told my co-worker, “People need to know that God really loves them! It’s the love of God that leads them to repentance.”

The Ages to Come…What Are They?

Hebrews 2:5 “For He has not put the world to come… in subjection to angels.

What is this world to come…a world not in subjection to angels, but to humans?

Psalms 8:6 says that man was set over the works of God’s hands, And all things were put in subjection under his feet. The book of Hebrews repeats this statement in Hebrews 2:6-8. Because of the sin of Adam, men lost that exalted position over the earth. But God had a rescue in mind, a plan to restore man to his original position as ruler over the earth.

“You Don’t Have it Anymore Either”

The life of the born again Christian believer is, or ought to be, a constant journey of discovery about who our new “Boss” is, the Kingdom that He is the head over, and how we have now been made a citizen of that Kingdom. We must learn what our new identity in Him is, and what rights and privileges have now been given to us.

Don’t Hide the Light That is in You

Luke 11:33

“No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lamp stand, that those who come in may see the light.”

I have read the verses preceding this one numerous times, but never really given a lot of thought to it. A cursory reading of it looks like Jesus was talking about various things, but upon closer examination, I believe each example He uses is related to the next. I think He is actually expounding on one thought.

You Can Take This to the Bank

“Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”–Ecclesiastes 8:11

Do you think this is what we see in our society today? The Bible is never wrong in describing the human condition. Because it was written by the inspiration of God, it contains the mind of the God who created all men and who knows their frame and everything else about them.

Jesus…the Absolute, Perfect Picture of Who God Is

Jesus is the exact representation or image of the nature and character of God.

The book of Hebrews begins by stating that in the past, God spoke to people in many different ways through the prophets, but now He speaks to us through His Son, who has been appointed heir of all things and through Whom all things were made. Hebrews 1:1-2. Hebrews 1:3 goes on to say…

Be Strong in the Lord, in the Power of His Might

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:10-12.

Are You Fully Persuaded?

Romans 4:18-21 “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as he had been told, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he acknowledged the decrepitness of his body (since he was about a hundred years old) and the lifelessness of Sarah’s womb. Yet he did not waver through disbelief in the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God was able to do what He had promised.” Berean Study Bible

The Eyes of the Lord

2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…”

The context of this verse is this….a seer came to a king of Judah to chastise him for relying on the help of another king instead of on God alone. The seer gives the king an example of a previous battle when the Lord had delivered the enemy into his hand and then goes on to make this statement about the eyes of the Lord. This statement is a true statement that all of us as God’s children can embrace as a promise for our own lives.

Angels Don’t Rule in the Age to Come…We Do

For He has not put the world to come…in subjection to angels. Hebrews 2:5

“Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?- 1 Corinthians 6:2-3
