WISDOM OF SOLOMON

Wisdom of Solomon? June 20, 2013   “ Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like. ” 2 Chronicles 1:12. Solomon was the son of David and inherited his father’s throne. God appeared to him in a dream and told him to ask for what he wanted. Solomon could have had anything he desired but asked for wisdom and knowledge. Solomon began his reign over Israel with humility. He didn’t ask for riches, but God gave him riches and wealth and honor in addition to the wisdom. God was pleased with him. But did Solomon honor God? His life started well, but he got sidetracked.   Just after the Israelites had left Egypt, God gave them some rules for their future king that God would choose from among them. “ But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he sh

Godly men lead their families, and as that Godly spiritual leader matures and grows in his faith his family also grows in faith. Children are nurtured and loved; they’

FELLOWSHIPPING WITH BELIAL

Fellowshipping with Belial May 30, 2013     “ Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14 . Many believe that Paul is only speaking about a marriage union between believers and nonbelievers. Actually there’s much more to this verse and the subsequent verses than most people like to believe. Corinth was a city full of pagan worship. Every deviant sexual practice and every form of satanic worship was there. Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians was to people who had accepted Christ but had not separated themselves from these pagan ways. Paul was not wishy-washy in his admonishment of their sins. The context is not marriage, but in fact it is about our Christian walk.   Christians are not to be unequally yoked together with unbelievers in anything. That means if you are a Christian don’t be married, don’t be in partnership
