Does God Still Kill People?

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6) “And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.” (Exo. 33:20) Moses needed to be hid in the cleft of the rock and allowed to see only the backside of the Almighty as He passed by, if he would have looked directly into the face of Glory, he would have died. That same glory is what the Lord Jesus Christ left in heaven when He came to dwell among men, or all who saw Him would have also died. A truth can be seen from this, that God does not change, but He can easily modify Himself. Did He walk in that glory in full view of Adam and Eve? When the Lord came to visit Abraham before the destruction of Sodom and

Testing Your Unbelief

“And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.” (Mark 9:24) I would ask you to consider this verse with the following one, “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matt. 6:34) How much assurance do you have within yourself that the plans you have for tomorrow will come to fruition, that by the end of tomorrow all that you had set before yourself to do will be accomplished? That your vehicle will start, or the bus will be on time, that your place of employment will still be there, that the shops you visit will still welcome you, that you will eat? Most people would consider these daily excursions into tomorrow expected, taken for granted, because of the simple

Looking Forward Always

I was a voracious reader in my youth, if I could not be found outside playing, it was the local library where I could be found. This continued well into my thirties, actually reading perhaps thousands of books, mostly fictional. But there was something that occurred to me recently, that the playing never really ended at that time, for I still sought the pleasures of this world. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4) Some may have considered it working for money, which I did, but nearly every employment position I accepted I did so to learn how to accomplish what was set before me, and when I did so, at least as much as I felt I needed to know, I moved on

Thou Shalt Not Covet

Is it possible to sin without coveting, if there is no temptation available, can the opportunity for sin be present? We do not go to the garden of Eden to search for the origin of sin, but to heaven itself, where we hear the covering cherubim say, “I will.” “For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:” (Isaiah 14:13) Lucifer could not have something he wanted, which implies two things, that he, along with all the angels, were created sinless, and that they were created with free will. “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” (Eze. 28:15) Lucifer realized that there was something in heaven that was denied

2.    Your first responsibility is to the Lord; “Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase”: (Prov. 3:9)

3.    You must consider your family after your first responsibility; “But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1st Tim. 5:8)
