On This Labor Day – Do Something Great

The Bible Unveiled

We are reminded in Colossians 3, If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God – Colossians 3:1-3. As one who knows many perils in this world, it is easy to become distracted by the world around us; with work, family, appointments, the economy, and stress. Did I mention stress? There is one thing that the LORD does for us when we are founded upon the ROCK that is Christ. We are given His peace. Take some time this month and consider your role in the body.

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance:…

Jump Out Of The Frying Pan Into The Fire

The Bible Unveiled

Lift Up A Banner is proud to announce the upcoming release of a new featurette, Into The Fire: The Burning Bush – Where The Spirit Speaks. The short film is set to be released within the next 30 days and I hope that you will be submersed into the Word of God as never before. While many of us consider all of the events and uncertainty in the world, le us jump out of the frying pan and into the fire.

As this may sound confusing, let us consider Daniel 3. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego while operating in great faith, trusted the LORD to deliver them from Nebuchadnezzar because they chose not to bow themselves down to worship other gods or idols. As they were thrown into the exceedingly hot furnace, we read the following, ‘Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said…

The Wandering Meadow

The Bible Unveiled

At the precipice of eternity there was a wandering meadow. 

Though serene and placid, somehow unattainable.  

The vast distance I see, a settling conviction. 

Life’s token required; the balance unpaid. 

Wrinkled and scarred, how encumbered the cost. 

The choices were ours, and now almost lost. 

Lintels and doorposts, do you know of the towers?  

Have you carefully counted, and weighed out each measure? 

A tear for each penny, a year for each slice, 

Our life is required, the fulfillment of price. 

“He that forsaketh not all that he hath, cannot be my disciple.”

– Luke 14:33

He Is Alive, He Is Risen From The Grave

He is risen from the grave! Look, He is alive! This excellent news is much more welcome and reassuring than ever before after a year defined by so much agony and suffering. The tale of Passover begins with a subject that has recently affected many of us: death. And dying by crucifixion at Calvary, where Jesus […]

He Is Alive, He Is Risen From The Grave

The Tendency Of Modern Christianity

The Bible Unveiled

For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow. – Ecclesiastes 1:18

As I sit here staring at a computer screen and a blinking cursor trying to figure out how to convey the following message, I understand the vanity of man explained within the pages of Ecclesiastes. Honestly speaking, it is painful knowing some of the depths within the Word of God. In a world such as we live in today, all Christians are taught pretty much the same thing. Believe in any Jesus Christ and all is forgiven. Do you even know what you are forgiven for? Jesus said, “you shall know the truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” Pilate said to Jesus, “what is truth?”

Do you know the truth? Do you know what you have been made free from? Is to be made free, something that takes time as the…

Christ In You, The Hope Of Glory

The Bible Unveiled

The hope of Glory is Christ in you. In Colossians, Paul tells us about the mystery that has been hid from the beginning which is revealed to his saints. Do you know what this mystery is? Everyone in Christianity, and possibly the world, knows who Jesus Christ is. Although, what is this great mystery? I could probably go to anyone and ask them what Christians believe. Do you know anyone who can clarify what Paul is speaking about? Why? What does Colossians say about who this is revealed to? “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written that He takes the wise in their own craftiness.” – 1 Cor 3:19. The fact remains that we probably don’t have a clue what we’re talking about unless we have His Spirit.

How do we receive His Spirit? Is it by baptism? Is it by the baptism…

Your Father The Devil – What Was Jesus Telling Us?

The Bible Unveiled

Imagine the world as if nothing was as it seems. Imagine what would take place if Jesus Christ’s teachings were literally true. Our Lord explained to us that His primary mission was to free the captives, restore sight to the blind, show us the way, and also to raise the dead. What would happen if all these things were true? If we were all blind, what would happen? If we were all in prison, what would be the result? If we were all conceived dead, what would become of us? Consider what could happen if these things were true. Could Jesus have been right? Could they be false? Has the Lord ever lied? Did He reveal to us we are descended from Satan? “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do… And because I tell you the TRUTH, ye believe me…

My Sister In Christ – Spiritual Inspiration

The Bible Unveiled

A Guest post of Spiritual Inspiration from my sister in Christ, while walking, even as Jesus walked. Inspiration given in September 2021.

Announce in Judah, proclaim in Jerusalem and say Sound the Trumpet throughout the Land. Raise the SIGNAL to FLEE to ZION without delay! For Jesus Christ is bringing great disaster from the North, even terrible destruction. A Lion has come out of his lair, a Destroyer of Nations has set out. He has left his place to lay waste your land. Your towns will be in rum without inhabitants. So put on sackcloth and ashes for the Fierce Anger Of The Lord. Tell this to the nations, Proclaim concerning Jerusalem. A besieging army is coming from a distant land, raising a War Cry against the cities of Judah! Oh, my anguish, my anguish! I writhe in PAIN! Oh, the agony of my heart! My heart pounds within…

Does The Peace Of God Reign In Your Heart?

The Bible Unveiled

Let the peace of GOD rule in your heart and always be thankful. How are we to let the peace of GOD reign within us? How are we to let go of the former self? How are we to put off the old man? Christians are called to eliminate their old sinful ways of thinking and to replace them with a completely new way of thinking. A life that’s possible due to the Holy Spirit living within us, the old man is symbolically replaced by Baptism. The new Man gets life by the receiving of Holy Spirit. What is the Baptism though? How are we to obtain the Holy Spirit?

The Bible tells us in Ephesians 5, “That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such…

Biblical Fasting – The Acceptable Fast

The Bible Unveiled

Within the pages of the Bible, we learn about Biblical fasting and what the acceptable fast is to the LORD. Jesus also teaches us about the two great commandments. We are to love the LORD God with all of our heart and love our neighbor as ourselves. According to the Word, these two principles go hand in hand.

In Matthew 12, there is a question from the Messiah: “Who is my mother? And who are my brethren?” The answer is like what the Bible teaches us about fasting. “For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” Many of us, while reading the Bible, take at face value what others are teaching us without seeking the answers for ourselves. So, what does the Word of GOD actually say about fasting? The answer is in Isaiah 58…
