Preparing the Way of the Lord

1 Thessalonians 5

Paul begins to instruct the pillars of our day about the onset of the tribulation, first teaching that the vast majority will be taken completely by surprise. 1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day […]

1 Thessalonians 3 – 4

1 Thessalonians 3 Paul reveals that he is at Athens and is sending this letter by Timothy for the purpose of confirming and establishing the pillars of Thessaloniki. 1 Thessalonians 3:1 Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone; 3:2 And sent Timotheus, our brother, and […]

1 Thessalonians 1 – 2

1 Thessalonians The epistles to the Thessalonians were recorded and preserved for God’s faithful pillars, who stand unshakable on every Word of God; and encourages them in their patient enduring while giving them key prophetic information. While the epistles of Paul are addressed to individual congregations; they are likewise preserved as Holy Scripture and recorded […]

Colossians 3 – 4

Colossians 3 Colossians 3:1 If ye then be risen [risen from the waters of baptism into Christ] with Christ, seek those things which are above [seek godly things and not worldliness], where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God [the Father]. 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth […]

Colossians 2

Colossians 2 Colossians 2:1 For I would that ye knew what great conflict [deep concern] I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh; 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love [which is living by every Word […]

Colossians 1

The Book of Colossians was written to the brethren at Colossae and to the brethren of Laodicea; it is therefore a direct message to today’s spiritual Ekklesia; who are for the most part latter day Laodiceans. Paul was the apostle to the Gentiles and everywhere he went; he spoke first to the Jews and was […]

Philippians 3 – 4

Philippians 3 Philippians 3:1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. Paul writes the same warnings to them and to us, that he repeatedly writes for our benefit throughout his epistles. 3:2 Beware of dogs [wolves […]

Philippians 2

Philippians 2 Philippians 2:1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2:2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Paul admonishes the Philippians to be like-minded […]

Philippians 1

Ephesians 5

Ephesians 5 Ephesians 5:1 Be ye, therefore, followers of God as dear children. 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. We are to follow God like young children follow their parents. God is our […]

Ephesians 4

Ephesians 4 Ephesians 4:1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord beseech you that you should walk worthy of the vocation [live a godly life] where with you are called 4:2 With all lowliness [humility] and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 4:2 Endeavoring to keep the unity of the spirit and the […]

Ephesians 3

Ephesians 3 Ephesians 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles, 3:2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: 3:3 How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, […]

Ephesians 2

Ephesians 2 Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened [given life], who were dead in trespasses and sin. We were dead, or as good as dead, because we were full of sin; and the wages of sin is death. The ultimate result of sin is death. We were as good as dead facing ultimate death for […]

Galatians 5 – 6

Galatians 5 Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, [yes his sacrifice has made us free from bondage to sin and free from having to pay the penalty of death] and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage, [bondage to sin] Once we are liberated from […]

Galatians 4

Galatians 4 Galatians 4:1 Now, I say, that the heir, as long as he is a child, differs nothing from a servant, though he is the lord of all. If someone inherits a huge estate but is still a child, they need to mature and learn how to handle that responsibility before that responsibility can […]

Galatians 3

Galatians 3 Paul condemns racism in the Ekklesia and teaches the difference between physical and spiritual circumcision.

Galatians 2

Galatians 2 Paul goes into a short history of his calling and ministry to establish that he learned the Word directly from Christ, and that he did not learn the New Covenant doctrine from other men, nor was he ordained by men, but was called and ordained of God. Then Paul immediately goes into the […]

Galatians 1

Galatians The Epistles of Paul have been attacked and twisted from the very days of Paul himself. Today they are twisted and perverted so as to appear to mean the exact opposite of what they do mean, turning Paul’s teachings to keep God’s Word with passionate zeal into an excuse to minimize and compromise with […]

Second Corinthians 12 – 13

2 Corinthians 12 2 Corinthians 12:1 It is not expedient [appropriate] for me doubtless to [engage in self glorying] glory [therefore] I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. Paul now speaks of someone [probably John and Revelation] who had had a vision of God’s Heaven. 23:2 I knew a man in Christ above […]

Second Corinthians 8 – 9

2 Corinthians 8 After writing his first epistle of correction to the Corinthians for tolerating the sinner, Paul finds Titus in Macedonia and hears of the deep sincere repentance of the Corinthians.
