"Listen to Me, you who know rightness and justice and right standing with God, the people in whose heart is My law and My instruction: fear not the reproach of men, neither be afraid nor dismayed at their revilings.

God vs Idols
Posted Friday, January 10, at 3:20 PM

"To whom can God be compared? How can you describe what he is like? He is not like an idol that workers make, that metalworkers cover with gold and set in a base of silver." (Isaiah 40:18-19, GNT) In this scripture, Isaiah is proclaiming the majesty of God over all other idols (or man-made images). No one or nothing can compare to the Creator of Heaven and Earth. No one can instruct The Lord; He is an all-knowing God...

Spiritual Slumber
Posted Friday, December 6, at 9:06 AM

"The Lord has made you drowsy, ready to fall into a deep sleep. The prophets should be the eyes of the people, but God has blindfolded them.

Choosing love over fear
Posted Friday, October 4, at 9:34 AM

"8 He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love...18 There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love's complete perfection]. (1 John 4:8,18, AMP)...

Posted Friday, August 16, at 1:54 PM

"Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut." (Proverbs 10:19, NLT) The above scripture is quite poignant. Lying lips can kill the spirit of unity in the workplace, home, and church. Whereas, a spirit of unity can effectively produce power, agreement, harmony, and God's presence. Any action or practice of deceiving someone by concealing or misrepresenting the truth is sin...
