Made … Continue reading I Struggle With Sin As A Believer. What Can I Do?
"OH NO! I BLEW IT AGAIN AND SINNED!" I once had a person telling me that the Jews killed Christ and made Him die on that cross.

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have TRIBULATION: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." (John 16:33 KJV) When troubles come into our life, and Jesus told us that they would, how should we be reacting? What about when … Continue reading Believers, Are We Listening? God Wants Us To REST IN HIM.
A family member of the Catholic faith once posted on social media that by "praying to St. Anthony for help, he will be right on it; and you will always be grateful to know him." By stating this, whether knowing or not, she was stating that St. Anthony was the reason why prayer will be … Continue reading Is Praying to Dead Catholic Saints Wrong?

There are all kinds of trees in the Bible. The tree of life. The tree of good and evil. And here Jesus speaks about … Continue reading John 15: The True Vine & The Branches
"But sin, taking occasion BY THE COMMANDMENT, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For WITHOUT THE LAW sin was dead." (ROMANS 7:8 KJV) There is something very special in this verse.

It … Continue reading Romans 7:8, “without the law sin was dead”
》》 SALVATION IS BY BELIEF ON CHRIST AND THE ONLY ATONEMENT FOR SIN; CHRIST CRUCIFIED. Jesus explains Salvation through Him in John 3 through conversation with Nicodemus, one of the Jewish leaders, that knew Jesus must be sent by God due to all the miracles Jesus performed. "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, … Continue reading The Moment of Salvation Verses Our Service After Salvation
I have heard from various pulpits and Bible teachers that what we do after Salvation is important to keep our Salvation and not lose it. They seem to think that after we believe on Christ, that is not enough. We also must work to help the Holy Spirit sanctify us as if we are all … Continue reading What Does It Mean To Rest In Christ?
This doubt is something all believers face at one time; especially in the early times after receiving Salvation through Christ.

(Matthew 6:34-34 KJV) As a believer in Christ who … Continue reading What Did Jesus Mean Saying That We Should Seek First The Kingdom Of God And His Righteousness?
I see many believers today and pulpits teaching that we are still to be under the Ten Commandments. That we should be obeying them and that God did not 'do away with them' when Christ came. From the perspective that the Ten Commandments are God's absolute truth and are Holy, they are correct but they … Continue reading What Is The Source Of A Believer?
"For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." (Matthew 6:14-15 KJV) Jesus said this right after teaching the Jewish people how they should be praying when they pray to God. It is part of … Continue reading Matthew 6: 14-16…Will We Lose Salvation If We Fail To Forgive A Person?
"Finally, my brethren, be strong IN THE LORD, and in the power of HIS MIGHT. Put on the WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, that ye may be able to STAND AGAINST THE WILES of the devil.

If we … Continue reading 1 John 1: Is Walking In The Light Something We DO? Or Is It About God’s Grace?
If you accepted the free gift of Salvation then you are not under the Law of Moses. You are under grace. Here are 37 scriptures that prove that Christians are not under the law!

(Romans 3:20) If … Continue reading Does the Bible teach that believers in Christ Jesus are not under The Law of Moses and Ten Commandments?
"I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
