JESUS CHRIST IS OUR SECURITY

Jesus Christ is our security


We live in a world that is very dangerous and as a result security has enhanced to the point where big brother is very active in life. Some of it is real and some of it is for fear and control.

I hear many people talk about the good old days but now that big brother is "Big" the joy has been taken out of life in many cases but of course that issue never applies to all people.

When I was growing up government did what they had to do and society went about the business of work and personal life. Now they are intertwined almost as one. We are not quite there yet but the Bible says it is coming. This is just one more sign that Jesus is coming very soon. When I was young we never talked about this subject because it was never a problem.

Scripture tells us that Jesus Christ is our security. This is not to say that we should not have common sense in our lives about the dangers of life but without understanding some…

THE SEVENTY WEEKS OF DANIEL OR THE 7-- 490 YEARS ACCORDING TO JUDGES.

A BLESSED REVIEW AND A WONDERFUL GOODBYE A blessed review and a wonderful goodbye
This is the very last article in this verse by verse analysis in the book of Philippians. I remember I was about to start a verse by verse study on Revelation chapter one and the Lord interrupted me and directed my review to the book of Philippians. I understood that there were people on internet land that needed to understand these four chapters because there is a tremendous need for Christians to apply the principles of this particular biblical content to their lives. I hope I was able to make this precious book more clear and break down the points Paul was trying to convey in a simple way with the motive of serving you (by the way it is always my pleasure) so you can apply these truths to your life in your church and on your job or where ever you are in your path down here on earth.  In the first article which was titled, "A wonderful reunion" it was quite obvious that Paul and the Philippia…

WHEN WE ARE FORSAKEN BY OTHERS

When we are forsaken by others


You would be surprised how many people are fearful that they will be forsaken by others in one way or another. Some dear brothers and sisters that I am writing to are presently abandoned by some friend or group that they were very close to and are taking it very hard. You gave your heart and now it is broken. The shattered pieces of your soul are all over the place and you are probably looking for someone to help you put them together so you can be whole rather than all over the place.

This has happened to me and believe this or not sometimes God is the author. If you truly know Jesus Christ He is never going to leave you. "And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. "Psalm 9:10. When we seek someone we want to get to know them. When we seek God it becomes all about a relationship with Him.

We hear the saying all the time trust in the Lord but to do this we must seek Him. It i…

THE BEAUTIFUL GIFT OF EVERLASTING LIFE

The beautiful gift of everlasting life


As a Christian I am so thankful that I have everlasting life through Jesus Christ. "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son." 1 John 5:11. What a gift God has given us through His Son Jesus Christ. Wow! How could I thank and praise God enough for being able to abide with Jesus Christ on earth and live with Him in heaven for all eternity?

The most popular verse in the Bible says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16. I appreciate every word of that verse but to be granted everlasting life through Jesus Christ is something so special to me on a personal level.

I was once dead in my sins and now I have life in Jesus Christ. The Son of God comes all the way home when He says, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that s…

THE CARNAL MIND

The carnal mind


I can see God, the angels and redeemed saints in heaven routing for us from heaven. Can you see an angel in heaven saying," Be spiritually minded so you can have eternal life?" How many times did they see a carnally minded person eternally separated from God for all eternity? They do not like dealing with that outcome.

We sometimes look at an unbeliever and get frustrated but according to the Bible they cannot be guided by the Holy Spirit and follow God. (6) "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (7) Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. (8) So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God." Romans 8:6-8.

Carnal is sinful but to be spiritually minded is to have our focus on Jesus Christ. One leads to death and unrest. The other leads to life and peace. Our sin goes against the Spirit of God but the Spirit of God goes against sin…
