By His Wound We Were Healed

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24, EVS, emphasis mine). “But he was pierced for our transgressions;he was crushed for our iniquities;upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,and withContinue reading “By His Wound We Were Healed”

Concerning Spiritual: (14) One in Christ

We’re all different. We all have different personalities. Some are plumbers, business people, warriors, politicians, quick, slow, slim, fat, quiet, boisterous, rich, poor, etc. But we all belong to Christ. We are the body of Christ, and He loves us all the same. We’re like pieces of a puzzle. Each piece makes up the whole.Continue reading “Concerning Spiritual: (14) One in Christ”

Satanic Influence

“The ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me” (John 14:30). There is the obvious reason this verse is important. It means Jesus is without sin and can be the our sin substitute. Yet, I’ve come to see a deeper side to this statement. First lets take a look at somethingContinue reading “Satanic Influence”

What Is Our True Armor?

I wanted to share with you a little different look at Ephesians chapter six, and maybe make it a little clearer or at least give you a broader view. As you probably know, Ephesians six is where Paul writes of the armor of God, but I don’t believe the parts of the armor (the sword,Continue reading “What Is Our True Armor?”

God Is God Of His Creation, Not Satan

Though people worship and follow others and things, God stands alone as the creator of everything. He set himself as the center of worship and the only true God. Following another god will not protect you from the creator God. Satan has never created anything. How then can he save you from Hades and Hell?Continue reading “God Is God Of His Creation, Not Satan”

Which Baptism?

I find it a little disconcerting when good Christian folks don’t understand there are different kinds of baptisms. This ignorance causes misinterpretation of scripture. Misinterpretation causes wrong thinking. Wrong thinking causes wrong believing. And wrong believing can cause us to miss out on the best God has for us. It also causes division among immatureContinue reading “Which Baptism?”

In Jesus’ Name

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21). Every time we use the name of Jesus, we declare what Jesus has done for us. Jesus has saved us from our sins. Jesus has saved us from the curseContinue reading “In Jesus’ Name”

The Fruit of Righteousness – An Outward working Of An Inward Power

Sin was before the law of Moses. It was the same during Moses time, and it is still sin now. Justification by faith doesn’t negate what sin is, in fact, it verifies that sin exist. If sin does’t exist, we don’t nee to be justified. Justification by faith changes your starting place. It changes theContinue reading “The Fruit of Righteousness – An Outward working Of An Inward Power”

The Difference Between Hades and Hell

There is a difference between hades and hell. Though knowing the difference may be of little significance in the grand scheme of things, still it’s in the scriptures and may be of interest to some. We’ll look at a few scriptures and find the difference. “If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck itContinue reading “The Difference Between Hades and Hell”
