BARTIMAEUS

Mark 10:46-52 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. And when he heard it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they called the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee. And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, "What wilt thou that I s

COURAGE

John 12:43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. It saddens me to think about this verse, this whole scenario that positioned John to write this sentence was shortly before Jesus was crucified. Many people believed on Jesus but because of what others thought or the impact it would have on their positions with the church they would not openly admit it. It’s still this way today, I myself have coward at proclaiming the gospel to others when I had the opportunity to pray for someone, or even just witness about Jesus, I didn’t; was I just concerned about what people would think or what they would say? Truth is both. When you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, yo

Thought Catcher

II Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds:) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Have you ever been so upset with the devil that you wanted to challenge him to a fistfight? Yeah, that’s probably not the wisest idea, and if you do that’s exactly what he would laugh at. One night as I was sleeping, I heard a voice tell me that I was a liar, it was audible and clear, I thought, “Wait a minute! I’m not a liar!” I woke

Childlike Compassion

Mathew 18: 1 - 5 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. I can honestly say this was one of those answers that perplexed the disciples, they were expecting to hear something like Moses, Elijah, maybe there were a couple of votes cast for Isaiah. This truly shows the heart of men, Jesus had just explained to them tha

No Debate

I Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto thee Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. When you first read this scripture, it can be a little perplexing to say the least. It’s the deep knowledge of God and who God is. The books of Timothy were written by the Apostle Paul and are considered the pastoral epistles, they address conduct and behavior and qualification’s for various positions in the church. Which brings us to the first sentence in this verse: And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: There is so much controversy surrounding the

One in A Million

Exodus 33:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle. This verse is formed out of grief. The children of Israel had committed grievous sin against God, and God had Moses move the tabernacle to the outside of the camp because He could no longer dwell inside the camp. As Moses went to meet with God that morning, all the men stood at the door of their tents and honored Moses as he went to meet with God, after this every morning as Moses walked to the tabernacle this was the custom to honor the man of God. But notice one man out of a mi

WARNING!

Revelations 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: This is coming sooner than most people think, and it is already being introduced into our culture and even implemented. This is what the church has talked about for centuries and it’s called: “The Mark of The Beast.” This mark has been debated over so much and so many different opinions given on the subject that confusion is the greatest defense the enemy has. And who is this author of confusion? Satan and Satan doesn’t play fair, and everyone is fair game. Satan is not omnipotent like God, two of the ways he can control mankind is through la

To the Finish

Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. I often think of this verse when I’m praying, I have a family portrait of my ancestors from more than 100 years ago, it’s a large black and white photo in a gold frame. Some sitting, some standing, no children in the picture just the heads of the different families. I don’t e

Fireproof

Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of the men that have transgressed against Me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh. Not everything in the bible is peaches and cream when this world’s time comes to an end this is what we will all see. What Isaiah is describing is called Hell, this is known as the second death, hell’s fire, tormented by flames of fire and a flesh-eating worm, an eternity separated from God. You’re either on one side of the flames or the other, no in-between. Those that have accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior will not suffer this death. Years ago, I saw a gentlema

Get To Know God

I John 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. Do you want to know God? This verse is pretty straight forward, but not everyone practices it. I have a friend named Jerry; he’s gone on to be with the Lord several years ago. Jerry was such a good old guy it would take the whole page just to say enough good about him. But Jerry wasn’t always such a good ole’ boy, you could tell that he used to be one tough character, a fighter. Then his wife became a Christian and through her dedication to the Lord, he finally came around. I talked to my pastor about Jerry, it seemed so unfair that this tough hard-core man just had a personality change and became a tough old, kind man. Why coul

Prosperity X’s Soul equals: Peace

III John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. What a beautiful greeting, it would be nice if we did this to one- another whenever we ran into a friend. Sometimes friends with their greetings will almost pronounce a curse on us and the very people they love. John is stating this to one of his pastors, Gaius who was leading a church and was having some trouble with another church pastor, Diotrephes who beheld a false doctrine. People like this can be very stressful to deal with, and John let him know he would deal with Diotrephes when he arrived. Gaius cherished this letter commissioned by the Holy Spirit and penned by the

God’s Blueprint

Genesis 15:8-9 And he said, Lord GOD, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it? And he said unto him, Take me a heifer of three years old, and a she-goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. And Abram said: “Adonai Yehhov’ee” which means: ‘Sovereign and Eternal’ Abram understood that God is self-existent, the beginning and the end, supreme ruler, but he also understood a characteristic about God, an insight a type of understanding that is only learned through love, obedience, and hard-fought battles. Abram had just defeated five kings, five kings who were ravaging and destroying other kingdoms and cities. Abram gave tithes to Melchizedek
