Pleasing God & Peace

Proverbs 16:7, “Pleasing God & Peace.”   Proverbs 16:7, “When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”   God can give peace to a person, or a nation, or He can take away peace from a person, or a nation. Isaiah 45:6 & 7, “That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there

Psalm 19:1 Integrity

 “Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool” Proverbs 19:1   The meaning of integrity is moral soundness or purity; incorruptness, uprightness; honesty.   Job is an excellent man of integrity. Job 2:3, “And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there i

Trust in the Lord

Psalms 37:1-5, “Trust in the Lord.”   Verse 1 – 5, “Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust

Do It By The Book

God never commanded anyone in His Word to tithe money to Tabernacle, Temple, Synagogue or Church. Yet, so many In churches around the world today are lied to every time the offering plate is passed. “God requires you to tithe your money” is spoken from the pulpit. “If you don’t tithe, you are a God-robber! You are cursed!” Is often shouted to put the laity in a state of guilt and condemnation. Relax Saints of God… Fear not. God never authorized that pastor to speak those deceitful and unk

Is Tithing a Sin?

Is Tithing a Sin? by Ronald W Robey Is tithing money a sin? Yes, it is,... if you are tithing money because, "the Bible commands us to tithe.". God's Word decides what is to be tithed, not us.  If the preacher's tithe sermon contradicts what is written in God's Holy Word, God is right, the preacher is wrong.  If man's belief concerning God's commanded tithe is contrary to what is written in the Bible about God's commanded tithe, God is right, man is wrong.  The decision as to what is to be ti

A Childish Man, Or A Childlike Man

There is a balance to life. Everything we do is, or should be, by balance. However, balance does not necessarily mean in even proportion. For instance, if I want a good balance of flour and yeast in my bread, I will surely not use the same amount of yeast as I do of flour! Life is the same. Different situations call for different proportions, and sometimes the balance is somewhat hard to find. This morning, I was looking in the back of my Bible and I saw a thought that I had written down a few

Praying Sincerely

Have you ever noticed how insincere we are when we pray? Just today I was thinking about prayer and I thought of praying over a meal. Then the thought came to my mind, "I wonder just how often we truly are thankful for our food, and how many times we just say that we are." It's sad that this should even be an issue, yet it is. We have made prayer so mechanical. I see it in my own prayer life. Certain things I always say in my prayers have become empty words, I pray sometimes, only because I have

The Stubburnness Of My Own Will

Recently, I've been considering why it was that certain people simply refuse to submit to God on some of the simplest things. Why is it that the Bible can be so plain on something, and yet we just ignore it like it was never there, declaring either that there is some other meaning, or even more brazenly, "I'm just not convicted about that!" Let me give you an example. The other day, I was discussing the issue of music with someone when they said that God did not set a clear musical standard in t

The Word Listen 聽 In Chinese.

Proverbs 1:5 Analyzing the Chinese word, ‘Hear.’ 「聽」 Introduction Proverbs 1:5 says, “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.” A wise man will listen to the scriptures and OBtain counsel. The Chinese language is unique, interesting, and very complex. Also, within their own

Following Christ.

Luke 9:51, "And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem." The Lord Jesus was determined to proceed to Jerusalem to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world. Jesus did not let the affairs of this life, the Pharisees of the religious world, the issues of His day, and the clamour of the world deter Him from the will of God in His life. Proverbs 4:25-27, "Let thine eyes look straight on, and let thine eyelids look strai

Man’S Dilemma And Its Remedy

Man’s Dilemma and Its Remedy By: James Foley Text: Luke 21: 5-38 In our text we find mans dilemma. The reading is lengthy, but necessary to show the severity of mans dilemma. The whole world is in turmoil today. In our text we can see the full scope of this world-wide turmoil. Religious turmoil: turmoil of nations: turmoil of nature: turmoil in personal lives and family relationships. Everywhere we look we see this turmoil and the resulting confusion and moral decay it generate

Contrary Doctrine

Text: Rom.16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 1Tim.4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 2Tim.1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 2Tim.2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the

Be Ye Followers Of Christ

What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? We are saved by the Blood of Christ, forgiven of our sin, and eternally secured with Him. But what does it mean to be a Follower of Christ? 1Co_4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. 1Co_11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Eph_5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; Php_3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. 1Th_1:6 And ye be

The Foolishness Of Preaching

The Foolishness of Preaching In todays society, all understanding, education, knowledge, and mankinds advancement is based on science, with the omission of God. The idea of God is seen as foolishness, and as an outdated close-minded mindset. Let alone the idea that there is something wrong with society, that their lives are filled with sin and they are in danger of perishing and going to Hell. These in societies eyes are the rantings of a lunatic, not understanding the seriousness of its fact.

Repent Part 1: A Series Of Meditations On The Word

Repent Part 1: A SERIES OF MEDITATIONS ON THE WORD June 26, 2014 at 9:50am Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. People generally don't read really long articles so we will explore and discuss what it means to repent together, in parts. In the days after creation the number of people grew. Mankind was wicked and God was "angry" that the internal thoughts of man were constantly about doing hurt to other people. So the Bible says that "it repented the LORD that he had made man on

Whosoever Loveth And Maketh A Lie

Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. The above should be a sOBering thought for all who read it. It should be a challenge for all to "think before you speak," and to "look before you leap." One group teaches that there is not a verse in the entire Bible where God commands Gentile Converts to faith in Christ to tithe their money. Another group teaches that God's Word commands Gentile Conv
 

Charity Begins At Home

God doesn't expect us to operate under the guidelines of the Mosaic/Levitic Law. We have been brought into a new Covenant with God. The old is no more. Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. So many pastors and teachers today attempt to keep their congregations under the guidelines of the Mosaic/Levitic Law, when that is not God's plan for the Church at all. God has given us His direction conc
 

He May Be A Levite, But...

A person once posed the question, "If we did a bloodline test, and it proved my pastor is a descendant of Levi, is he eligible to receive tithes?" Bloodline test, DNA, genealogy,... any other evidence that would prove your pastor in "yourcity, planet Earth", is a Levite still would not excuse him from preaching the lie that God requires tithes of money. There is not one single command in the Word of God for money to be tithed. If your pastor IS a Levite, the only tithe he would have been qu
 

Jacob's Vow

Did JacOB really promise to give God a tenth of all his belongings? JacOB made a vow, saying, "Of all thou shalt give me, I will surely give a tenth." Interesting vow, which was not fulfilled by JacOB himself, but by his offspring. God promised to give JacOB the land JacOB was on. Genesis 28:13-15 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed s
 

God Will Come Nigh In Judgment

Malachi 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me,
 

Whose Image And Superscription?

“Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s, and unto God that which is God’s.” Matthew 12:21 The above statement made by Jesus to the scribes and Pharisees is often taken out of its context and used by pastors and laymen alike, in an attempt to prove that God requires tithe of money from the Church member today. But, when read in context with the entire discourse, and rightly dividing the Word of Truth, it is easy to see that Jesus was not endorsing a monetary tithe at all. Nor was He saying
