Matthew 13:57

King James Version

57 And they were offended in him. 

But Jesus said unto them, 

A prophet is not without honour, 

save in his own country, 

and in his own house.

JESUS came to the world to save us from our sins.

He conquered death, and the devil.

But many people don't believe in Him.

They don't believe He is the SON of GOD.

What happens when they don't?

Here's what Scripture says:

Matthew 13:58

King James Version

58 And he did not many mighty works there 

because of their unbelief.

Mark 16:16

King James Version

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; 

but he that believeth not shall be damned.

John 3:16

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

John 3:18-19

King James Version

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: 

but he that believeth not is condemned already, 

because he hath not believed in the name 

of the only begotten Son of God.

19 And this is the condemnation, 

that light is come into the world, 

and men loved darkness rather than light, 

because their deeds were evil.

John 8:24

King James Version

24 I said therefore unto you, 

that ye shall die in your sins: 

for if ye believe not that I am he, 

ye shall die in your sins.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

King James Version

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness 

in them that perish; 

because they received not the love of the truth, 

that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause 

God shall send them strong delusion, 

that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned 

who believed not the truth, 

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

James 1:6-8

King James Version

6 But let him ask in faith, 

nothing wavering. 

For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea 

driven with the wind and tossed.

7 For let not that man think 

that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

8 A double minded man is unstable 

in all his ways.

Revelation 21:8

King James Version

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, 

and the abominable, and murderers, 

and whoremongers, and sorcerers, 

and idolaters, and all liars, 

shall have their part in the lake 

which burneth with fire and brimstone: 

which is the second death.

Even the LORD's disciples had a problem with unbelief.

Matthew 17:14-21

King James Version

14 And when they were come to the multitude, 

there came to him a certain man, 

kneeling down to him, and saying,

15 Lord, 

have mercy on my son: 

for he is lunatick, 

and sore vexed: 

for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, 

and oft into the water.

16 And I brought him to thy disciples, 

and they could not cure him.

17 Then Jesus answered and said, 

O faithless and perverse generation, 

how long shall I be with you? 

how long shall I suffer you? 

bring him hither to me.

18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; 

and he departed out of him: 

and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, 

and said, 

Why could not we cast him out?

20 And Jesus said unto them, 

Because of your unbelief: 

for verily I say unto you, 

If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed

ye shall say unto this mountain, 

Remove hence to yonder place; 

and it shall remove; 

and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out 

but by prayer and fasting.

We are not judged for our unbelief.

But something else will.

JESUS tells us so.

John 12:47-50

King James Version

47 And if any man hear my words, 

and believe not, 

I judge him not: 

for I came not to judge the world, 

but to save the world.

48 He that rejecteth me, 

and receiveth not my words, 

hath one that judgeth him: 

the word that I have spoken, 

the same shall judge him in the last day.

49 For I have not spoken of myself; 

but the Father which sent me, 

he gave me a commandment, 

what I should say, 

and what I should speak.

50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: 

whatsoever I speak therefore, 

even as the Father said unto me, 

so I speak.

Hebrews 13:9-10

King James Version

9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. 

For it is a good thing that the heart be established 

with grace; 

not with meats, 

that have been occupied therein.

10 We have an altar, 

whereof they have no right to eat 

which serve the tabernacle.

What does the Bible say about GOD's "altar"?

As first article for a perceived series of articles, the HOLY SPIRIT led me to these Book of Revelation verses.

Each set of verses is worthy of meditation, and further study.

Revelation 6:9-10

King James Version

9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, 

I saw under the altar the souls of them 

that were slain for the word of God, 

and for the testimony which they held:

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, 

How long, O Lord, holy and true, 

dost thou not judge and avenge our blood 

on them that dwell on the earth?

Revelation 8:1-6

King James Version

8 And when he had opened the seventh seal, 

there was silence in heaven 

about the space of half an hour.

2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; 

and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, 

having a golden censer; 

and there was given unto him much incense, 

that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints 

upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 And the smoke of the incense, 

which came with the prayers of the saints, 

ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

5 And the angel took the censer, 

and filled it with fire of the altar,

and cast it into the earth: 

and there were voices, and thunderings, 

and lightnings, and an earthquake.

6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets 

prepared themselves to sound.

Revelation 9:13-15

King James Version

13 And the sixth angel sounded, 

and I heard a voice 

from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, 

Loose the four angels which are bound 

in the great river Euphrates.

15 And the four angels were loosed, 

which were prepared for an hour, and a day, 

and a month, and a year, 

for to slay the third part of men.

Revelation 11:1-4

King James Version

11 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: 

and the angel stood, saying, 

Rise, and measure the temple of God, 

and the altar, 

and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, 

and measure it not; 

for it is given unto the Gentiles: 

and the holy city shall they tread under foot 

forty and two months.

3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, 

and they shall prophesy 

a thousand two hundred and threescore days, 

clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees, 

and the two candlesticks standing 

before the God of the earth.

Revelation 14:18-20

King James Version

18 And another angel came out from the altar, 

which had power over fire; 

and cried with a loud cry

to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, 

Thrust in thy sharp sickle, 

and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; 

for her grapes are fully ripe.

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, 

and gathered the vine of the earth, 

and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, 

and blood came out of the winepress, 

even unto the horse bridles, 

by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Revelation 16:7-9

King James Version

7 And I heard another out of the altar say, 

Even so, Lord God Almighty, 

true and righteous are thy judgments.

8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; 

and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

9 And men were scorched with great heat, 

and blasphemed the name of God, 

which hath power over these plagues: 

and they repented not to give him glory.

Psalm 34:4

King James Version

4 I sought the Lord, 

and he heard me, 

and delivered me from all my fears.

In need of peace?

Look to the LORD JESUS.

In need of comfort?

Look to the HOLY SPIRIT.

In need of love?

Look to GOD.

In need of certainty?

Look to the BIBLE.

In need of a direction?

Look to being BORN AGAIN.

All these I've come to know when GOD made me born again.

It's been a daily studying, and sharing of the Bible these past 40 months.

SPIRIT teaches me each day.

And here's where He led me today.

These verses speak of the GOD of PEACE.

Mark 4:39-41

King James Version

39 And he arose, 

and rebuked the wind, 

and said unto the sea, 

Peace, be still. 

And the wind ceased, 

and there was a great calm.

40 And he said unto them, 

Why are ye so fearful? 

how is it that ye have no faith?

41 And they feared exceedingly, 

and said one to another, 

What manner of man is this, 

that even the wind and the sea obey him?

John 14:27

King James Version

27 Peace I leave with you, 

my peace I give unto you: 

not as the world giveth, give I unto you. 

Let not your heart be troubled, 

neither let it be afraid.

John 16:33

King James Version

33 These things I have spoken unto you, 

that in me ye might have peace. 

In the world ye shall have tribulation: 

but be of good cheer; 

I have overcome the world.

Romans 5:1

King James Version

5 Therefore being justified by faith, 

we have peace with God 

through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 15:13

King James Version

13 Now the God of hope 

fill you with all joy and peace in believing, 

that ye may abound in hope, 

through the power of the Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 14:33

King James Version

33 For God is not the author of confusion, 

but of peace, 

as in all churches of the saints.

Galatians 5:22-23

King James Version

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, 

joy, peace, longsuffering, 

gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: 

against such there is no law.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

King James Version

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless 

unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 1:7

King James Version

7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 

but of power, 

and of love, 

and of a sound mind.

James 3:17

King James Version

17 But the wisdom that is from above 

is first pure, 

then peaceable, 


and easy to be intreated, 

full of mercy and good fruits, 

without partiality, 

and without hypocrisy.

Breathe freely, dear friends!

Breathe, through JESUS!

JESUS and sinners


JESUS said heaven rejoices 

over ONE sinner who repents:

Luke 15:7

King James Version

7 I say unto you, 

that likewise joy shall be in heaven 

over one sinner that repenteth, 

more than over ninety and nine just persons, 

which need no repentance.

Do you know how much JESUS loves us?

Do you know how much sinners matter to Him?

Never mind if He's criticized for it:

Luke 15:1-2

King James Version

15 Then drew near unto him 

all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, 


This man receiveth sinners, 

and eateth with them.

As always, the LORD teaches in parables.

Luke 15:3-6

King James Version

3 And he spake this parable unto them, 


4 What man of you, 

having an hundred sheep, 

if he lose one of them, 

doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, 

and go after that which is lost, 

until he find it?

5 And when he hath found it, 

he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6 And when he cometh home, 

he calleth together his friends and neighbours, 

saying unto them, 

Rejoice with me; 

for I have found my sheep 

which was lost.

Proof of how much sinners matter to the LORD can be found through these verses:

Mark 2:16-17

King James Version

16 And when the scribes and Pharisees 

saw him eat with publicans and sinners, 

they said unto his disciples, 

How is it that he eateth and drinketh 

with publicans and sinners?

17 When Jesus heard it, 

he saith unto them, 

They that are whole have no need of the physician, 

but they that are sick: 

I came not to call the righteous, 

but sinners to repentance.

Luke 19:10

King James Version

10 For the Son of man is come to seek 

and to save that which was lost.

John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through him 

might be saved.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.

If you are a sinner, you are not unusual.

Who isn't?

We're all sinners.

But do we have to remain as one?

Romans 3:10

King James Version

10 As it is written, 

There is none righteous, 

no, not one:

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;

1 John 1:8

King James Version

8 If we say that we have no sin, 

we deceive ourselves, 

and the truth is not in us.

1 John 1:10

King James Version

10 If we say that we have not sinned, 

we make him a liar, 

and his word is not in us.

We are to have compassion for each other.

For the weakness of our flesh.

For the corruptibility of our minds.

For the flightiness of our souls.

JESUS teaches compassion:

Matthew 7:1-5

King James Version

7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, 

ye shall be judged: 

and with what measure ye mete, 

it shall be measured to you again.

3 And why beholdest thou the mote 

that is in thy brother's eye, 

but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, 

Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; 

and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

5 Thou hypocrite, 

first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; 

and then shalt thou see clearly 

to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Every day we're still on earth, is pure GRACE.

We can only thank the LORD, for His mercy.

It's time to get right with the LORD now.

For a purpose JESUS made clear.

The RAPTURE can happen, any moment.

Even as we speak.

Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: 

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Mark 1:15

King James Version

15 And saying, 

The time is fulfilled, 

and the kingdom of God is at hand: 

repent ye, 

and believe the gospel.

How many more reminders do we need?

Every sinner matters.

We are all matter, thus, we sin.

It's now time to be born again.

That we may be of GOD's SPIRIT.

John 3:3-7

King James Version

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born again, 

he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, 

How can a man be born when he is old? 

can he enter the second time 

into his mother's womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, 

Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 

Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, 

he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; 

and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, 

Ye must be born again.

From sinhood, to sainthood?

It is possible.

ONLY through JESUS.

1 John 1:9

King James Version

9 If we confess our sins, 

he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, 

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The ANCIENT paths


Jeremiah 18:15

King James Version

15 Because my people hath forgotten me,

 they have burned incense to vanity, 

and they have caused them to stumble in their ways 

from the ancient paths, 

to walk in paths,

that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law,

turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, 

that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; 

but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,

according to all that is written therein: 

for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, 

and then thou shalt have good success.

by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

and all nations shall flow unto it.

3 And many people shall go and say,

Come ye, 

and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, 

to the house of the God of Jacob; 

and he will teach us of his ways, 

and we will walk in his paths: 

for out of Zion shall go forth the law, 

and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

4 And he shall judge among the nations, 

and shall rebuke many people: 

and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, 

and their spears into pruninghooks: 

nation shall not lift up sword against nation, 

neither shall they learn war any more.

5 O house of Jacob, 

come ye, 

and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

But they said, 

We will not walk therein.

nevertheless afterward 

it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness 

unto them which are exercised thereby.

12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, 

and the feeble knees;

13 And make straight paths for your feet, 

lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; 

but let it rather be healed.


Hebrews 12:14

King James Version

14 Follow peace with all men, 

and holiness, 

without which no man shall see the Lord:
