John 8:36

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Another beautiful verse that I have had on my mind today. Without God, are we ever really free? He is the one who grants us all the blessings that we have in life. Remember that….



While taking a break at work tonight a Scripture came upon me about knowing God. The entire chapter of Psalm 46 shares the importance of know that God is God. That His power and control over the entirety of the world cannot be matched. I believe this came to me because there are times in my life that I try to solve my problems without seeking deliverance from God.

I believe that each of us need to take the time to be still and know that God is God. Just like when he told Moses, “I am that I am.” He told Moses to tell the people that I am sent him to deliver His message. GOD could have commanded Moses to go into detail, instead He knew a few words were all that was needed to get the point across. Sometimes, we needed to us little to no words to make thing go better.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5. A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6. A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

The beauty of this wisdom is that it is truth. There is an appointed time for everything on the earth. Our problem is that we want to decide when that appointed time should be. God is the one who appoints time for everything. Man must learn to heed to the will of God and stop expecting God to heed to the will of man. If man makes a mess of his own life, how does he expect to dictate the order of the rest of the world?

Submission to God, is the beginning of true wisdom. Once man accepts that God is all-knowing then he can listen to the guidance of God’s commandments. We must be willing to have faith in God without question or doubt.

Persecution is a Part of It

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

I am sure there are many of us that have heard something along the lines of; “that old Bible thumper”, or “they think they are better than me”.  These are the kinds of comments that people will use as a form of discouragement for true Children of God. In fact, if you are not experiencing this type of persecution there is a good chance that you might be lacking in the dedication department.

Now I am not saying this is always the case, because Jesus went to some places where he was welcomed by the people. However, there always seemed to be that one person who wanted to question what he was doing. The lack of faith can be a powerful tool for enemies of God and those that follow Him. Our job, as His followers, is the spread the greatness of God’s love and not allow those of this world to discourage us in the process.


This is a good example of why we must be loving towards one another. There are many people who believe that a person must ask for forgiveness, but I believe that we need to not allow grudges to drag us down. Jesus while hanging on the cross and dying told God to forgive the people for what they were doing. Stephen also shared this mentality while he was being stoned. Forgiveness is a crucial part of being a Christian.

Matthew 22:41-46

41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

I have given some thought to this interaction between Jesus and the Pharisees, I have noticed that the Pharisees were not able t answer many of the questions that Jesus presented them with. I believe this comes from the fact that the Pharisees were not Godly men as they acted and they did not have the Spirit to reveal the meanings of things concerning Jesus.

The solution, as I believe,  is this: Jesus was with God from the beginning. This is the reason he is Lord. He came to earth in human form and therefore needed to be born of a human woman. Mary is a descendant of David and this made Jesus a son of David. So, while Jesus  has always been in Godly form, he was descended from the bloodline of David. Jesus is Lord, always has and always will be. Jesus in flesh, had David as an ancestor.

God is the Way

It’s been a while since I posted anything, it’s be a hectic start to the new year. Recently, I started my second job and been trying to find the balance needed to finish my last month of class and two jobs. My wife had been working double shifts at her job due to call-offs and this has thrown our schedules for a bit of a loop. Hopefully, things have already started on an upswing for us. If not, it is the will of God and we will accept this faithfully. I know that sometimes we tend to push this to the back of our minds, but God isn’t going any where. All it takes if for us to turn our problems over to Him and He will carry us through it.

1 Peter 5:6-11 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
