You're In This World But Not Of It
by Don Richey on January 25th, 2023
Surely, He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. Psalm 91:3Notice the wording used in this verse. Surely, He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler. Not “maybe” or “sometimes,” but “SURELY.” Not a conditional “He might” but a definitive “He shall.” What blessed assurance we have that our God will deliver us from the snare of the fowler.  The Bible...  Read More
You Are Righteous Now
by Don Richey on January 18th, 2023
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness comes by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.   Galatians 2:21For good to happen to us, we must have a correct understanding of our right standing with God. So many have been taught to associate righteousness with a list of things that they have to do, and if they fulfill this list, they feel righteous. And when they fail in their behavior...  Read More
Speak The Word
by Don Richey on January 11th, 2023
And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak. 2  Corinthians 4:13Friends, it has never been enough to just KNOW the Word in our heart. We have to SAY it. That’s when dormant power becomes actual power. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness, He did not merely think about Scripture. He SPOKE it ou...  Read More
He Keeps Up In All Our Ways
by Don Richey on January 7th, 2023
For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:11-12Are you aware that angels are surrounding us and protecting us today, because God has given them charge over us to do just that very thing. When we choose to make Him our habitation, He charges His angels to watch over us and to s...  Read More
The Word Became Flesh
by Don Richey on December 28th, 2022
Making the Word of God of none effect through your traditions…  Mark 7:13The Christmas season is the perfect time to consider the miraculous virgin birth of Jesus. However, the truth about His birth sometimes gets lost in our Christmas traditions. Jesus warns against making the Word of God of none effect by the influence of traditions. I believe many of the Christmas traditions we have today distr...  Read More
A Biblical Understanding of Fasting
by Don Richey on December 21st, 2022
The Bible (primarily the New Testament) gives us the reasons for fasting and they are: (1) To minister to  the Lord. (2) To lay hands on ministers to send them forth. (3) To draw close to God in perilous times. Although the New Testament does not tell us "to fast", it certainly does not mean that we should not.There are not iron clad rules in the Bible regarding fasting and that is because the nee...  Read More
The Precious Gift of Righteousness
by Don Richey on December 16th, 2022
Therefore, by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.  Romans 3:20It is vitally important that we understand the purpose of the law in regards to our relationship with God. The law was given for only ONE purpose. That you would have the knowledge of sin and recognize your need for a Savior. Without the law there would be no sin (Roman 5...  Read More
What Jesus is Today, is What You Are
by Don Richey on December 11th, 2022
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: because as He is, so are WE in this world.  1 John 4:17It’s a joy to know that God does not measure and judge you based on your performance today. Instead, He looks at Jesus, and as Jesus is, that is how He sees you. WOW. Think about that for a moment. Could this actually be true? His Word declares that “love has b...  Read More
The Pulling Down of Strongholds
by Don Richey on December 3rd, 2022
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:3-4When you are meditating on Bible promises that proclaim God’s truth over your life, you are already beginning to win the battle for your mind. It’s not a coincidence that Jesus was crucified on Golgotha, which actually mea...  Read More
Be Sure You're Conscious Of The Cross
by Don Richey on November 16th, 2022
For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.  1 Corinthians 2:2We see here in this scripture the Apostle Paul saying that he determined to know nothing among them except “Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” In other words, Paul, who wrote two thirds of the New Testament, had his mind full of Jesus and His finished work.Friends, God wants you to be mindful of ...  Read More
Is It God's Will to Heal Everyone
by Don Richey on November 2nd, 2022
…For I am the Lord that health thee.  Exodus 15:26 (Read full verse)There are still so many Christians who are not convinced that God still heals today. If they do believe He heals today, they’re not sure it’s His will to heal everyone. To the true student of the Word, there is overwhelming evidence that not only says it’s God’s will to heal today but that it’s His will to heal all who come to Him...  Read More
Not Sin Conscious, But Christ Conscious
by Don Richey on October 26th, 2022
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace   Ephesians 1:7Have you ever tried to make an effort not to sin? Have you ever started out your day saying that you will not sin and being so conscious of your conduct that you get extremely discouraged when you make a mistake? If so, then you are not Christ conscious but sin conscious. Men, ...  Read More
