Filthy Sheep Wool: A Deadly Self-Defence

The human heart can cause the mind to conveniently forget our own unrighteousness as a self defense mechanism when we feel hurt or wronged .  Seldom do we see how we contributed to a situation. We even feel what we call “righteous indignation” if we think we did not deserve something. We tend to desireContinue reading “Filthy Sheep Wool: A Deadly Self-Defence”

Don’t Leave Your Seat

Both Christians and others seem to be so disappointed with the church’s “performance” mainly because of intolerance of the moral and social disparity between Christ and those who claim to follow His way.  Many recognize our LORD’s standards are perfect despite worldly attempts to defy His Deity.  While many may not wish to yield theirContinue reading “Don’t Leave Your Seat”

Guaranteed Security Within the Boundaries

For years I enjoyed an unexceptional faith.  The kind that believes in Jesus for Salvation as a form of fire insurance. Then there were the added benefits such as having a community of like-minded people, pleasant messages, worship music, and all of the wonderful promises in Scripture.  I was happy to be in the sheepfoldContinue reading “Guaranteed Security Within the Boundaries”

Chosen to be Pure in Heart

I love Jehovah God’s immutability and His intentionality!  There is such comfort in knowing His grace and patience endures long with humanity despite our propensity to error; that our development, emotions and comprehension have no influence on who He is.  The LORD’s grace in Old Testament Scripture is characterized so very beautifully in the bookContinue reading “Chosen to be Pure in Heart”

The Message in a Body

Scripture in the book of Isaiah contains such a beautiful prophecy about the promised Messiah purposely born to establish His Kingdom on the throne of David forever; His name – God; His rule – justice; He is Wonderful, Counselor, and the Prince of Peace.  Rabbis and Jewish writers like Elie Wiesel have long maintained thereContinue reading “The Message in a Body”

Intricate Mysteries Ascribe God’s Excellency

Who are you? Who did God design you to be? If you were created in the image of God, what does that really mean? What purpose does a human being ultimately have? Are there many purposes or just one? How can someone understand God’s specific will for their lives using a collection of writings datingContinue reading “Intricate Mysteries Ascribe God’s Excellency”

The Heart That Never Cries

  Yesterday following a robust discussion in our local bible study, I was asked a question by a fellow student of the Word of God who was trying to grasp HOW a person can possibly live in eternity and never morn unsaved loved-ones who are forever tormented and separated from those who live with God.  Continue reading “The Heart That Never Cries”

One of Many Branches on a Fruitful Vine

What’s with a blog dedicated to fruitfulness? Almost sounds too fruity… Lately I’ve felt so compelled to deepen my life’s journey with God my Father, wanting to know Him more intimately and the more I long to know Him, the more I am drawn into His Holy Scripture. Reading the Bible use to be aContinue reading “One of Many Branches on a Fruitful Vine”
