5 “For to which of the angels did God ever say, ‘you are my Son; today I have begotten you’? Or again, ‘I will be his Father, and he will be my Son’? 6 And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him.’ 7 Of the angels he says, ‘He makes […]

At the Cross

What was it that actually happened at the cross? What was it that God was accomplishing by having His Son die at Calvary? Well I believe that are a number of things that God made clear through the substitutionary death of Jesus, and these, of course, have amazing ramifications for our spiritual wellbeing. In Romans […]

It Is No Longer I – It Is Christ Who Lives In Me… Galatians 2:20

rose with buds

I love the book of Galatians and never cease to marvel at the depth of God’s love expressed in the book. Paul is in top form as he unloads on the “false teachers” who have invaded the churches of Galatia to confuse and bind them to the Torah, the laws of Moses. These false teachers […]

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not condemned; he […]

“Did you know that you are the beneficiary of a great honor? You have the privilege of coming into the very throne room of the Great I AM. Not only have you been invited to stand in His presence, you have been invited to conversation, an intimate dialogue with the One who cares about you […]

If you don’t belong to a small group or a Bible study group you are really missing out on a great deal of fun and companionship to say nothing of what you might learn spiritually. Every time I attend I learn something new or have something jogged in my memory that brings me encouragement and […]

I started thinking about my prayer life the other day and I have to admit I was a bit startled by how self-centered it was. I pray to get things. Here is what got me thinking, if I pray for things or for God to make my life better, then my happiness must reside in […]

Last post we saw that the church at Thyatira was tolerating false teachings by the prophetess Jezebel. These teachings were closely associated with the teachings of Balaam and the Nicolaitans that plagued the church at Pergamum. Though the church at Pergamum hated these teachings, the church of Thyatira turned a blind eye to the vile […]

The longest letter to the seven churches is addressed to the least important of them in size and political importance. But, regardless, the letter is one of the most instructive and interesting of all seven. “To the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God, whose eyes […]
