Plan of God

Acts 535 And he said to them: “Men of Israel, [h]take heed to yourselves what you intend to do regarding these men. 36 For some time ago Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody. A number of men, about four hundred, [i]joined him. He was slain, and all who obeyed him were scattered and came to nothing. 37 After this man, Judas […]

Ananias and Sapphira Pt 4

Acts 5:7 Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?” She said, “Yes, for so much.” 9 Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the […]

Submit

Ephesians 519 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, 20 giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another in the fear of [f]God. The picture this paints in my head is a little funny. People […]

Measuring God’s Love

I went back to my commentary so I could read this again and see if there was more information I could get. My commentary had some cool insight. Ephesians 317 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and […]

This Calling

So the next section is GREAT. However, it is hard to find a stopping point for break down purposes. These sentences just run on and on. Ephesians 118 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the […]

Submit.

Ruth 33 Therefore wash yourself and anoint yourself, put on your best garment and go down to the threshing floor; but do not make yourself known to the man until he has finished eating and drinking. 4 Then it shall be, when he lies down, that you shall notice the place where he lies; and you shall go in, uncover his feet, and […]

Not on God

Ruth 2There was a relative of Naomi’s husband, a man of great wealth, of the family of Elimelech. His name was Boaz. 2 So Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, “Please let me go to the field, and glean heads of grain after him in whose sight I may find favor.” And she said to her, “Go, my daughter.” From my Commentary:A man of […]

Ever Increasing Faith

I don’t do this often, but I’m posting twice today. I’m rereading Smith Wigglesworth book “Every Increasing Faith.” Here is an excerpt I wanted to share.. I visited a woman who had been suffering for many years. She was all twisted up with rheumatism and had been two years in bed. I said to her, […]

An Old Rebuke

1 Timothy 5Do not rebuke an older man, but exhort him as a father, younger men as brothers, 2 older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, with all purity. From my commentary:Do not rebuke: The ancient Greek verb for rebuke is not the normal word for “rebuke” in the New Testament. This is the only place this word is used, […]

Restoration

Song of Solomon 6 The Shulamite 11 I went down to the garden of nuts To see the verdure of the valley, To see whether the vine had budded And the pomegranates had bloomed. 12 Before I was even aware, My soul had made me As the chariots of [c]my noble people. Commentary Before I […]
