The Importance Of Studying A Real Bible

(Psalm 119:11,15) "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee... I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways." I wonder how many believers today truly study God's Word? Too many people today are satisfied with only having some electric device that will open up a good Bible program, but never do they hold a real tangible Bible in their hands or mark it up with notes when the Holy Spirit speaks to them during devotions. Too often believers read a verse for the day, or some prewritten devotional, but never do they sit and really study God's Word for themselves as God intended. I'm just old fashioned enough to look back at my 40 years of Bible reading to say that I'm on my 4th Bible, for I have three older Bibles on my book shelf that look like they went through a war (which they did). Each having pages scribbledwith notes that go back to a time when God specifically spoke to me about something important during my lif…

True Love

(Song of Solomon 8:7) "Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned."  In the above verse, Solomon is expressing the strength of a real love between two people who are committed to each other, especially in the Lord. True love is indestructible. 1) True love came from God. God so loved man that he gave man the ability to not just love Him but also his mate in life. (Gen. 2:22) "And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man." That day, God gave a precious gift to Adam. It was someone to complete him, someone like him, from inside him, someone who could share life with, and a love like no other in this world. When Eve was given to Adam it was for life and not just until he found another. That's why Adam said, "therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: an…

Is there An Unpardonable Sin

(Mark 3:29) "But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:" So, is there a sin that can be committed that is unforgivable? According to the above verse there is, but how is this sin committed, and can a saved person commit it?
1) What is the unforgivable sin?  Well, it's not a one-time blasphemy but rather a "settled position" where someone refuses to believe God's Word while at the same time rejecting the convicting power of God's Holy Spirit, adding blasphemy to unbelief. The religious Pharisees of Jesus' day were so in denial that they even attributed Christ's miracles to the devil making themselves as stated above, "in danger of eternal damnation." In other words, they had not totally committed this sin yet, but were in danger of doing so and its unforgiveness, if they continued in their unbelief and blasphemy. 2) Can a saved person commit it?No!!!A saved believer is…
