Overcomers

The book of Revelation completes the canon of Scripture.  As we read the book, a group of people called overcomers are referred to directly or indirectly over one hundred times in the twenty two chapters. It is of interest that the Greek word that translates into “overcomer” is nikao.  John is the only writer of…

“Get in, Buckle up, Hold on!”

In the next several posts we will focus on various aspects of the Revelation of Jesus Christ as given to the apostle John on the isle of Patmos.  That which has been revealed entrusts us with the sacred responsibility and privilege to obey with humility, interpret with sensibility, and to worship with clarity.  We will…

What Happens When We Die?

  Scripture teaches things about the future life that most believers (Christians), and almost all others, have never heard of.  The church has done little to enlighten and plenty to mislead us and to numb us into a comfortable confusion.  There is a sort of cozy and vague optimism that it is all going to…

Resurrection, Insurrection

This is the fourth and the last post in a mini-series that began as True Faith, Real Faith.  We have been looking at the foundation and the manifestations of the kind of faith that is pleasing to God.  It must be reiterated that all of these concepts have been taken directly from Scripture. True faith,…

A Perpetual Legacy

                  This post is the third in a series of four as we explore the nature of faith that is true and real.  All of these concepts are derived directly from Scripture. True faith, real faith makes room for God to do the improbable and the impossible.…

Pleasing to God

The next three posts, Pleasing to God, A Perpetual Legacy, and Resurrection/Insurrection, are birthed out of the introductory post, True Faith, Real Faith.  All three consist of seed thoughts concerning the nature of faith and how this trust and confidence in God manifests itself in our daily pilgrimage/journey.  All twenty seven of these concepts are…

True Faith, Real Faith

What is involved in having the type of faith that pleases God?  Does this kind of faith have a foundation?  How is it to be manifested in the lives of those who have it?  Is it ours as the result of a one-time event, or is it recognized and acclimated to over a lifetime?  Let’s…

Sacred Seed

Confidence in God gives clarity, coherence and radiance in living.  The person who fears God and leans purposefully on His precepts and promises will stand erect and firm on an established foundation. Seed from this family will be robust in the earth.  They will be kingdom-priests and valiant champions.  Excellence will characterize their every endeavor. …

The Death of Death, Conclusion

Jesus prayed seven brief prayers from the cross. When he opened His mouth, He shattered the gates of hell and opened the gates of His kingdom. “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”  By taking our sin into His being, He experienced the abandonment of His Father.  We experience the perceived abandonment of…

The Death of Death

Two of the Gospel writers wrote of the birth of Jesus Christ.  All four writers give a brief account of the Resurrection of Christ.  But they all give a detailed account of His Crucifixion.  The defining act of Christ’s life was His death.  This willful and sacrificial act was ultimately the death of death in…
