Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

Isaiah 7:14

Handling the Word of God!


   The Apostle Paul recognized the power of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, he knew it stood on its own and that nothing needed to be added to it!


For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”


Romans 1:16-17


   Paul also realized that not everyone would understand the message of the cross. Paul both knew and he observed the effects of the message of Jesus Christ; he saw how some accepted that message and he also saw just the opposite. Paul saw those that  unfortunately rejected the gospel message.


For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.


1 Corinthians 1:18


   The Apostle presented the gospel message straight forward as it is; he didn't sugar coat the gospel message or water it down, as some preachers do today. Paul never used the gospel message to further his own ends or to get rich as some preachers do today. Paul was very clear in his delivery of the message, he didn't tickle the ears of the listeners as some do today. Paul was very careful with how he handled the gospel message because he knew the power that te message had. He knew the message stood on its own merits and needed no help from man. Paul glorified Jesus in how he handled the message and in how careful he was in his delivery.


But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,


2 Corinthians 4:2-3


We need more preachers like Paul today, and less of the ear ticklers.

2 Corinthians 2:14-15

A Fragrant Aroma!

   God is always with us and God will never leave us! When you add to this...

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the
Lord,
And their righteousness is
from Me,”
Says the Lord.

Isaiah 54:17

   We start to lose our fear of man, and begin to rely upon, depend upon our Lord and little by little the confidence builds.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

   When we become totally submissive to the Lord, totally dependent upon Him, we become conquerors...

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Romans 8:37

   Nothing can stop us, because nothing can stop the Lord...

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

1 John 4:4

   We overcome the world and then the Lord disperses us as a fragrance. We become the light in a darkened world. As we spread the gospel message more hear the word and more accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior, we become a fragrance that continues to spread.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

2 Corinthians 2:14-15

How do you smell?

And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Jesus * Said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: No one comes to the Father but though Me.
