Ephesians 3:2-5 if indeed you have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which was given to me for you, how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets: (NKJV) Imagine you are staying the night at someone’s house for the first time. You wake up in the middle of the night and need to find the bathroom. As you lay on the sofa bed in the middle of the living room, […]
Matthew 18:3 “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” (NKJV)Picture in your mind with me three scenarios with small children:An adult is holding a dog saying, “Come here. Pet the doggy. He’s nice. He doesn’t bite.” An adult is standing in a swimming pool a couple of feet from the edge saying, “Jump! C’mon, I’ll catch you, don’t worry.” An adult is kneeling on one knee, arms outstretched saying to a child, “I need a hug! Come let me love on you.” What will be the child’s response in all three of this situations? It depends on who you were picturing as the adult. In all three scenarios, […]

Question:I am believer and constuction constractor. I was recently asked by Husband (non believer) and wife (a believer) to build some apartment buildings for them. In exchange for doing this work they want the compensation to be in the form of an ownship interest in the apartments. I have prayed about this situation and have looked up scripture. I am struggling with what to do. Any thoughts would be of great help. Answer:There are no prohibitions in Scripture against doing business with unbelievers. In fact, as we do conduct business with them, we should do so in such a way that our conduct witnesses to them and brings glory to God.I see no caution from the standpoint of Biblical principle. But of course, you should […]
Psalm 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law. (NKJV)Part of the Christian life is the illumination of God’s truth in our hearts. This is much more than just a head knowledge or intellectual understanding of the Bible. You may understand, and can articulate your salvation, but when the implications of it truly becomes illuminated in your heart, you will glory in it. It will consume your thoughts and transform your life. We’ve all seen the excitement and reaction of someone who wins the lottery or inherits a surprise fortune. We’ve seen the ecstasy of newlyweds or the person who just got an autograph from their favorite celebrity. And while all of that isn’t worthy to be mentioned on the […]
Revelation 20:9 – They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. (NKJV) In the movie 2012 which chronicles a Noah-worthy endtime cataclysm, the Woody Harrelson character, who is the kook conspiracy theorist (and of course right on the money about the truth), made a statement like this: “All the great peoples and religions knew about the end of days, the end of the world. The Mayans, the Incas, iChing… the Bible, kinda…” Hollywood never misses a change to demean Scripture, at best making it equal to every other religion, but more often, lowering it further to the status of fables and […]
Yeah, I know. I’m really insensitive aren’t I. In reality, no I’m not. I’m sad for ANYONE who has to admit God exists when it’s too late to do anything about it. I have an atheist friend I’ve been emailing regularly who will face a similar revelation about God someday. I just hope she does it on this side of eternity.

(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. It is very bold to declare in six words the conclusion to the whole matter of life. Only God can get away with describing creation in 10 words, and life in six: Fear God and obey His commandments. As humans we want things to be plain, and that’s about as plain as it gets.The enacting of that truth however is far from plain. To know what the Bible […]
