We need the stars

December 30, 2018

God didn’t make a billion trillion stars for Himself, He made them for us.


But I don’t need them! someone says. Oh yes, we need them all. They are there to speak to us of how great their Creator is.


See Psalm 19.

Dispelling doubt

December 29, 2018

Only trust can dispel doubt.


Nothing else can.


December 29, 2018

“….meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.”


Colossians 4:3-4


It shows the utter dependence on the Spirit of God to help us speak as we ought to speak, as He opens doors to speak.


This is why Paul requested prayer for this, for he knew that God would answer and give him the utterance.

Eternal Life

December 29, 2018

In 1 John 1:2 Jesus is called, “…that ETERNAL LIFE which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us.”


The Person of Jesus Christ is eternal life.


So, if anyone wants eternal life they must have Him.


And “whoever has the Son has life”.


And you can’t have Him if you still want to continue in your sinful life.

One billion trillion stars in the observable universe.


That’s a lot of energy.


It had to come from somewhere.


Now, just think how much power or energy God has to instantly create 1 billion trillion stars?


When He opens our eyes we fall on our face and worship Him.

The way it’s supposed to be

December 29, 2018

If every Christian obeys the Holy Spirit then you have the church the way it was always supposed to be.

Not an option

December 29, 2018

Understanding the Bible, and understanding who Jesus Christ is, has done, and requires, is the same thing.


If we don’t understand the Bible, we don’t understand Jesus.


So, understanding the Bible is not an option.

How did He do it?

December 29, 2018

How did Jesus raise the funds for His ministry?


He didn’t.

One and the same

December 28, 2018

Asking someone, Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? ….or asking them, Do you preach Jesus? …. is virtually the same thing.

No difficulty too great

December 28, 2018

There is no difficulty in the Christian life which is too great to be faced by faith and prayer.

Seeing was believing

December 28, 2018

I was a diehard church system guy until the day I visited a house church and saw something of how the early church functioned.


Seeing was believing, for me.


Actually, more experiencing the truth lived out by some folks.


December 28, 2018

I think if we’re not willing to risk a friendship over a vital truth in Christ, then it’s not much of a friendship.

Talk like normal people

December 27, 2018

Non-institutional church goes something like this: Let’s skip the program and just talk like normal people.

He said it

December 27, 2018

“Whoever believes on me shall never die.”


~ Jesus Christ


Jesus said it and millions of us have believed him.


If anyone else said it you would know they’re insane.

Whose word?

December 27, 2018

If you’re not teaching God’s word, then whose word ARE you teaching?


December 27, 2018

There can be no coming to Christ without forsaking sin, otherwise it’s not real.

Tell me

December 27, 2018

Tell me something that’s better than God?

The shell

December 27, 2018

The shell of the body is not as important as what’s inside the shell.
