Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day: Genesis 21:33

 And Abraham planted a tamarisk tree at Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the Lord, the Everlasting God.

  • The everlasting covenants and promises are conditional (i.e., Jeremiah 7
  • Salvation is absolutely free in the finished work of Jesus Christ, but it requires repentance and faith.
  • Jesus calls His new relationship with believers "a new covenant" ( Matt. 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20; 1 Cor. 11:25).
  • It is both a legal pronouncement (forensic) and a call to Christlikeness ( Matt. 5:48; Rom. 8:29-30; 2 Cor. 3:18;….
  • Believers are not saved by their performance, but unto obedience (Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Cor. 3:5-6)
  • Godly living becomes the evidence of salvation, not the means of salvation (i.e., James and 1 John).
  • However, eternal life has observable characteristics!

No one created God. He always existed and always will continue to exist.

Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day: James 1:13

Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.

  • God is not the source of evil (Eccl. 15:11, 15, 20).
  • God has no connection or experience with evil.

God does not tempt so as to destroy, but He does test so as to strengthen

Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day:  1 Samuel 15:29

And also the Glory of Israel will not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind.

# The attributes as descriptions of God (1 Chr. 29:11.)

  1. will not lie
  2. will not change His mind (clarified as not like a human)

Repentance can affect God's will. If not, what is the purpose of intercessory prayer?

Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day:  1 John 1:9

 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

  • Believers continue to agree with God that they have violated His holiness (Rom. 3:23).
  • Jesus' death is the means of forgiveness, but sinful mankind must respond and continue to respond in faith to be saved (John 1:12; 3:16).
  • God takes our sins seriously, yet He has provided the means for our forgiveness in the substitutionary death of Christ (Rom. 3:21-31).
  • Believers who continue to commit acts of sin need restoration of fellowship.

Our God is a faithful God. Whatever He speaks in His Word is true. Whatever  He promises, will come to pass. He will keep all His covenants

Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day: Philippians 3:10

“that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; ”

  • As believers share Jesus' victory, they also share His ministry (Matt. 10:24; Luke 6:40; John 13:14-16; 15:20; 17:18; 20:21; 2 Tim. 3:12)
  • Believers must be dead to sin and self and alive to God 16:24-26; Rom. 6:1-11; Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:3)

True life is preceded by death to the old life!

Verse of the Day

Acts 5:1-3 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles' feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself?”

2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

  • Peter, through this gift, discerned that Ananias and Sapphira's hearts were filled with Satan's lies. They held back a portion of money which had been pledged to the ministry.

# distinguishing between spirits insures the body of Christ against the infiltration of deceivers.

  • Through the distinguishing between spirits, we can know when we are being deceived either by Satan through people or situations, or by people themselves. This revealed knowledge becomes our protection.

Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 55:8-11

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the Lord. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth , And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

  • God's ways are beyond our understanding

Verse of the Day

Verse of the Day: Romans 9:11

“for though the twins were not yet born and had not done anything good or bad, so that God's purpose according to His choice would stand, not because of works but because of Him who calls,”

  • God's choice was not meant to exclude, but to include! The Messiah will come from a select seed, but He will come for all (who exercise faith (Rom. 2:28-29; 4:3, 22-25; Romans 10).
