  Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching (KJV). As we previously discovered,...

  We were all created for relationship; not one of us was meant to be alone.  When sin entered into the world, relationships began to break down, and loneliness entered in as well. The very first relationship to break down was the one between God and man.  Every human being is born...

Awakening with this epiphany, I laughed.  Really, four epiphanies in one night of sleep?  It sounded like a strange play or movie concept.   This epiphany was about my daily mantras. I awoke with the realization that I don't really use daily mantras.  I use situational mantras...

  The primary focus on the word guilt here is the emotion of inadequacy attached to it, and not so much the committing of an actual offence. Guilt is the unholy counterfeit of the conviction of the Holy Spirit, used to manipulate and impede one’s ability to function as a child of God...

  Matthew 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful (KJV). When believers are so intertwined with the world, it makes it very difficult for...

  James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak . . . (KJV). When talking with other people, we should treat each one as if he or she is the most important person on the planet, because each one is the most important person to God. ...

  Some confuse other people’s actions with who they are, and consequently judge them accordingly.  If they were to see someone doing something bad, they may tend to judge him as someone who is bad, even though they do not know what is in his heart.  They may simply have...
