The Burden

I’m studying Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan as part of a Life Group at church. The Bible is the number one selling book in the world, and Pilgrim’s Progress is number two. Honestly, I couldn’t understand it until I watched the animated version a couple of years ago. Now I’m thoroughly enjoying it. There are …

Practice Righteousness

Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, …

Pray about everything

This is the home screen of my phone. I keep it there as a constant reminder to pray about everything (Philippians 4:6). Yet, I forget to do that, believe it or not. Whenever I have a lot of God-related plans (ie plans on how I’ll get things done that God has placed on my heart) …

None Should Perish

The day of the Lord is at hand. We don’t know the when, only that it will occur. Therefore we must be vigilant about sharing the Good News so that none should perish. Bible Verse of the Day But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a …

The Gospel

I think we make out the Gospel to be more complicated than it is, as far as sharing it. If you watch Ray Comfort’s video (below), you’ll see how he simply asks questions and then tells the young man that Jesus died for his sins. Paul shares the Gospel in just two verses in 1 …

Seeing the Light

The “god of this world” (Satan) keeps unbelievers from seeing the light of the gospel. He causes them to have closed minds so they won’t be receptive to hearing or recognizing truth. In my FaceBook prayer group “Pray In The Stillness,” I post the same things I share on my blog. Once in a while, …

War Arose in Heaven

Another one of Satan’s falls occurs in the future; sometime during the tribulation period when war arose in Heaven. It explains the scene I picture when I read from Luke 10:18, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.” Bible Verse of the Day And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought …

An Angel of Light

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 ESV

He Shall Bruise Your Head

Satan deceived Eve. She allowed herself to be deceived. Then she shared her sin with her husband, who willingly sinned against God. As a result, we are all under the curse, (Genesis 3:14-19) the penalty of which is death. But, God knew all of this would take place and had a plan for our redemption …

Satan’s Fall

I always pictured the scene as he and a third of the angels (what a multitude that must have been) literally falling, forcefully cast down to earth and into the gates of hell, locked out of heaven for all eternity.* Maybe it was like that, but commentary tells us that when Jesus said, “I saw …
