Thoughts To Ponder In Your Walk With The Lord (Part Fourteen)

God is a divine mathematician. God’s exhale was the mathematical formulas that created creation. When God removes the curse on creation, the harmony of mathematics will be heard by all of creation as it flows endlessly from the Throne of The Most High. We are atoms (indivisible), descended from Adam with the same nature –indivisible – with volition (personal choice)…

Thoughts To Ponder In Your Walk With The Lord (Part Thirteen)

In the blazing radiance of the Lord’s glory our depravity is exposed, and His glory helps us see our depravity. He will expose the real self. America seems to be asleep, complacent in slumber, enjoying plentiful crops, clothes, possessions and luxuries, while our enemies plot our destruction, Material possessions build false security – a falseness to reality. Only when God’s…

That Which Is To Come

Wolves rushing in Eagles swooping down Confusion binding truth Untruth leading the blind The Restrainer slowly being withdrawn The way of Anti-Christ is being prepared Tribulation is just ahead Wickedness rules the day Come quickly, Lord Jesus – call us out We’re listening for the trumpet And the thunder of your shout. Amen.   Written Sunday September 18, 2022

Thoughts To Ponder In Your Walk With The Lord (Part Twelve)

Sobriety reveals one’s sweetness; alcohol releases one’s suppressed emotions. It is interesting that alcohol keeps the alcoholic in denial of addiction – the guilt of drinking keeps the alcoholic away from church and the Lord’s day. Alcohol breaks apart marriages, it keeps families apart, it ruins relationships, it is a guilt trip, it causes paranoia and cirrhosis of the liver,…

Power In The Blood?

In the Old Testament Levitical offerings, animal blood was the basis for setting up a representative analogy, or a teaching aid. Remember, in ancient times most people could not read. The animal blood in itself had no value but was used to demonstrate the future sacrifice of the innocent Lamb of God (Christ) on the cross. Therefore, whenever the blood…

God… Is Circularity, Causality

Eternity may be considered as: Illusion; both the future and the past simultaneously present; time is a means to measure eternity as endlessness – infinity; time is a creation by God with which to allow/cause us to understand God as always eternal – a means of thinking – an intellectual concept for perception; human-mind interpretations. We cannot know something about…

Lusts Of The Flesh

Our sin nature covets praise of peers, approval of others, our approbation lust runs wild… until we are slaves to it. Examples: The self-righteous person, those with an inferiority complex, and self-centered individuals. Egotism: power lust, the need to be seen. Bullying: internal conflict and misplaced aggressions. If you want to eliminate trouble in one step, do this: Kill your…

Satan – The Ruler Of This World

Satan is the ruler of this world, as referenced in the Scripture verses below. Adam and Eve and indeed, by default, all of us, were the intended rulers of the world. When Adam and Eve sinned, they handed over the keys, as it were, to the world, thereby placing control and rulership in the hands of satan (Unless his name…

The Body, The Soul, And Death

When physical death occurs, life leaves the body lifeless. The soul lives on, moves on. The soul and spirit of the believer is escorted to Heaven; the soul (no spirit – spiritually dead) of the unbeliever moves to Torments (a compartment of Sheol, located across the great gulf fixed from a now-empty Paradise). Praise the Lord. Amen.

Human Love

Capacity for human love involves emotion, thought, and expression. Genuine objective love is expressed from bible doctrine resident in the soul of the believer who is oriented to God, and given out to the world in the daily details of life (1 John 4:7-8).

God And The First Law Of Thermodynamics

The first law of thermodynamics is that of energy conservation. This law states that although energy can change forms, it cannot be either re-created or destroyed, and therefore the sum total remains the same – constant. Thus, no energy is now being created or destroyed anywhere in the known universe (Reference Genesis 2:1-2; Psalm 33:6-9, 102:25; Hebrews 4:3,10). Truly, there…

… To Save The Lost

We don’t need to go up to heaven to find truth and salvation. Christ came down from heaven to us to seek and save us by His death-payment for us. The incarnation and the death of Messiah were for the purpose of resurrection, confirming His power and grace to utterly save lost mankind. Jesus Christ is Lord (Jehovah-God) whether or…

Special Places Of Friendship

Veiled in obscurity in the hearts of those who love a friend is the true meaning of the unexplained — the desire of the ages. The whole inner beauty of friendship-love is known in the deepest of soul-friends as undefinable, but oh-so-real and forever. Enjoy now and hereafter the warmth and peace of special people and places.

Common Arguments Against God, Salvation, And Biblical Truth

The “I want nothing to do with organized religion” argument is based on the rules and corruption of human-created religion, and this argument is valid. God Himself stands apart from organized religion. Religion is humans trying to gain the approval of God by working their way toward something better. Grace, on the other hand, is what God freely does for…

The Breath Of God

THE BREATH OF GOD The Word of God was literally “breathed” into the writers of scripture by God the Holy Spirit. This breath is the same breath that God breathes into every human being at physical birth. His breath gives life to all creation, including His “living” (the original Greek is literally “alive”) Word – the Bible (Heb. 4:12). All…

Thoughts To Ponder In Your Walk With The Lord (Part One)

Committing ourselves to God’s Truths, we can withstand the assaults of materialism, communism, and existential humanism; we can keep our humanity – our dignity. Our character is determined by our reaction to circumstances, not the circumstances themselves. Counter adversity with God’s Word, His principles, and faith – our fortification in time of need. We have to recognize, and even more…

Scientific Laws And The Universe

DOCTRINE OF THE SCIENTIFIC LAWS AND OF THE UNIVERSE The continuation of the universe and earth all depend on the omnipotence and immutability of Jesus Christ (Col. 1:17, Heb.1:3). “Scientific laws” is a misnomer. This is a Divine law. Science can observe and classify. Only God can guarantee the continuation of these. The universe will not always exist as it…

Points To Ponder

The following is a theological presentation of Biblical knowledge manifested in Scripture and developed here for thought processes of the individual reader as guided by the Holy Spirit; ponder and reflect upon them, one by one. Any extension of Scripture revelation is an infinite undertaking. There is progress in doctrinal knowledge, but there is no increase in Scripture-revelation, only our…

Barrier Of Sin

An invisible wall, insurmountable, that literally separates imperfect mankind from PERFECT GOD. This barrier prevents man from having a relationship with God. Six bricks comprise this barrier: 1). MAN’S POSITION IN ADAM 2).  SIN 3). THE PENALTY OF SIN 4).  PHYSICAL BIRTH 5).  MAN’S RELATIVE RIGHTEOUSNESS  6).  THE PERFECT CHARACTER OF GOD This barrier is removed by the atoning work…

Religion or Relationship

Someone once wisely said:  “I left the rituals of religion for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.”  Authentic Christianity is NOT a religion — religion is ritual without reality!  Christianity is a personal relationship with the only living God, through faith in Christ Jesus (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Jesus condemned religion and religious people. Read Christ’s harsh words for yourself,…

God’s Uniquely-Born Son

To begin our lesson, we will address one important question: How is it that we are ‘born sinful?’ Well, we are born as a duplicate of Adam as he was spiritually, after the fall. We share his original sin and his sinful nature by genetic transmission. Thus we share his spiritual death. Adam’s sin becomes our sin; his sin nature;…

SCRIPTURE FOR MEDITATION Many topics and verses below are also viewable on the Home Page and/or in various categories under “Tree of Knowledge.” There may be some variation from editing, but repetition is a good teacher. Also, some people will search “Meditations” or “Lectures” before reading the “Home Page” or the categorical studies listed under “Tree of Knowledge.” WOTM wishes…

Intrinsic Knowledge/Intrinsic Desire

INTRINSIC KNOWLEDGE Because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made” (Romans 1:20). “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the…

Faith Perception

(Based on Roman 8:28-32). Your understanding of salvation and the filling of the Holy Spirit comes by means of faith-perception. Knowledge, understanding, acceptance, belief.  Faith-perception (meditation and recall of doctrine) makes the power of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual life of the believer, a reality in our thinking. Reality is NOT what we feel, NOT what we assume, NOT…

The Seven Glories of Christ

THE SEVEN GLORIES OF CHRIST Nowhere in all of Scripture (except the book of John, chapter 1, and the book of Hebrews chapters 1-3) is the uniqueness of the Glory and Divinity of the person of Christ so compactly presented. Open your ‘Study’ Bible to the first chapter of Hebrews.   Notice the first word in Hebrews chapter one is “God.” The…

I Am

“I Am that I Am” Jehovah Elohim (Lord God) emphatically declared His Deity and authority “I am that I am” (Exodus 3:14). Then Messiah (Jesus the Christ, the Son of God), in the Gospel of John and Revelation, declared the same essence of Deity. “I AM the Bread of Life” (John 6:35). “I AM  the Light of the world” (John…

The “Sin Nature”

Arrogance of the Species   We humans sin because we can. We sin because we have the knowledge of good and evil.  We sin because we have volition (freedom to choose). We sin because we have the Adamic (Adam’s) Nature – the sin nature. The “old man” of Ephesians 4:22; the Adamic nature; the “flesh” of Romans 8:3, 4; the…

Internationalism

Satan is the enemy of nationalism. Satan offers internationalism in its place in an effort to establish his own utopian kingdom on earth. Satan’s intent is a universal state which he can control and sit on the throne as God without God’s interference. How arrogant is that? Internationalism opens the door to a world dictator – the Anti-Christ. The first…

Socialism — Two

Socialism is the human attempt to provide a utopian economy with political, social and environmental ‘perfection.’ But only Jesus Christ will accomplish a perfect environment at His Second Coming. If a free society is to remain free there must be a strong military, to protect the freedom of human volition. Therefore, every citizen must know and understand the Divine Gift…
