And God gave Solomon wisdom

1 Kings 4:29-34, “And God gave Solomon wisdom.” 1 Kings 4:29-34, “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon's wisdom excelled of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about. And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his

Genesis 1 (Bible Primer)

Genesis 1:1 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. We will be looking at this text today. I would like to first however, do some equipping for all of us. To some this may be review and to some this is completely new. Before we get started in the first verses of scripture, I would like to look at the nuts and bolts of how we are going to understand our Bible. Further to that I think we should look at why it’s the Bible we study. How do we know its trust worthy? And then final

Spiritual Growth

SPIRITUAL GROWTH, AS TAUGHT BY SCRIPTURE AND THE SCIENCE OF BOTANY By Jim Foley   Text:  “…Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow”  Matthew 6:28.   INTRO:  In this scripture Jesus gives us an object lesson as to what constitutes spiritual growth, and how it happens.  Jesus made the lilies and He made me, and now he describes to me how both biological and spiritual growth takes place.  People often create for themselves a great deal of anxiety because they assume

Right in the Sight of the Lord

1 Kings 15:11-15, “Right in the Sight of the Lord”    11 "And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.   12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.   13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.   14 But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa's hea

When did the church begin?

When did the church begin?    I think we would all agree that the English word “church” originates from the Greek word, “Ecclesia”. Without going into great detail I believe that we can also agree that this Greek word basically means “assembly.” Ok, if we agree so far then we can move on to what assembly we are referring to when discussing the word, “Church.” I think it logical to begin with the promise of the church. We find the promise here: Mat. 16:18 And I say also unto t

Four Principles for Building a Church

“Four Principles concerning the New Testament Church.”   King Solomon, and the nation of Israel, was seven years in building the Temple. Wow! Seven years is a long time. It takes a long time to get a large job accomplished. Sometimes when a person starts a work, and it takes a long time, they get discouraged and give up.   King Solomon did not get discouraged and he did not give up. He finished the task that God told him to do. The task of building the Temple was a very impor

All Things Work Together for Good

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.  Romans 8:28 Romans 8:28 is one of the the most familiar verses in the Bible and one of the verses people most like to "claim." It also seems to be one of the most misunderstood and misapplied. All too often, the misunderstanding arises when someone refuses to simply allow the scripture to say what it says. The most obvious misunderstanding is the fact that the

The Wonders of God's Grace

The Wonders of God’s Grace by Ronald W Robey   Luke 5:37 And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. Luke 5:38 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. Luke 5:39 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.   In the above passage, Jesus was demonstrating the fact that Law and Grace CANNOT mix.

Believers and the Law

Just something going through my head this morning: CHRISTIANS AND THE LAW   In this electronic age of communication, with the internet, hence the world at our fingertips, it gives one a view into the minds and lives, often more than we might prefer, of many others who, before this, we might now little to nothing about.   One thing that always amazes me, is the great lack of biblical understanding of so many who claim the name of Christ-and today, again in this age of in

Peace in the Midst of the Storm

Matthew 14:22-33 “Peace in the Midst of the Storm.” By Alan   “And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away. And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went un

Biblical Repentance

Biblical Repentance Before I dive into the doctrine of repentance let me just say that I am very aware of the importance of judging myself before judging anyone else and I try to walk in the light. In case you are wondering “who are you to reprove others?” I am only a sinner saved by God’s amazing grace. In fact, I am less than nothing apart from the Lord. BUT, Like Jeremiah, God’s Word burns in me and I cannot keep quiet. If there is a doctrine that is seriously lacking in today’s chu

The Light of the World

The Light of the World James Foley     John 1:1-13   A. Our text begins at the very beginning of time as mankind knows it. Since God has no beginning and no end, this reference supports the fact that God is from eternity past. Because we are creatures of time, we cannot possibly comprehend the infinite nature of God.  I would like to speak to you today regarding the contrast between a Holy, Just and Righteous God and mankind in his natural state, meaning withou

The Kindness of God

  “The Kindness of God” 2 Samuel 9:1-13 David & Mephibosheth The theme of this story is the kindness of God. In David’s life, we can see the kindness of God. Because David and God had an intimate relationship, David developed a kind heart. Background Before David became the King of Israel King Saul tried to kill David and prevent David from becoming King over I

Closed Communion James Foley   I Corinthians 11:17-34: "Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the

The New Birth

THE NEW BIRTH Text: John 3 :1-21.      Introduction: The text at hand shows that there is something that is extremely important to every individual that comes into this world. It also shows that there are some that are aware of it but for the most part, mankind is ignorant of its necessity. This subject is so important that it is the reason that the Bible was writte

Glory in Heaven

“Glory in Heaven.” Daniel 12:3, “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; And they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” According to the scriptures, what is wisdom? And who is a wise person? “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” Job 28:28  A person who fears the Lord, and is trusting in the Lord for the salvation of their soul, has wisdom.  God

The Blind Beggar

The Blind Beggar  James Foley     Text Mark.10:46-52 Here is a man beset by two great evils, blindness and poverty. Being blind is sad enough all on its own. We pity one like this, but to be blind and poor is heart breaking. My application of this scripture is that this man’s condition is but a picture of the natural man’s condition when he is born into this world.

The Sacrifice of the Lord Jesus

To atone for ones sins is to reconcile a person to

The LORD is good.

“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” Nahum 1:7   “The LORD is good.”   In this short devotion I would like to consider Nahum 1:7 in the light of our Saviour Jesus Christ being LORD and a few thoughts brought out by the Lord Jesus when He preached the Sermon on the Mount.

God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. We need to sit back, be still, and just meditate on the attributes and character of God. We need to understand that the ve
