Jesus Is Our Rock “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house,...Read More

Odds and Sods Vol 2 Issue 24 The newsletter will be available on Wednesday. Having difficulties with my other site, JonClaytonWrites.com. I am using the Divi theme from Elegant Themes with a child theme from a 3rd party. I liked it because it had a stunning look. But, it had become difficult to manage on the admin side. Finally had enough and switched to the Extra theme (Divi for blogs). That has made the situation better. Extra is the same theme I use on this site. Still, there is much to do on both sites. God is good! Live...Read More

I Never Knew You “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23, NKJV) Jesus spoke here of a proper verbal confession, where these ones called Jesus Lord.

If You do these things, show Yourself to the world.” 5 For even His brothers did not believe in Him. (John 7:3-5, NKJV) Not Even His Brothers Believed We know from Scripture who Jesus’ brothers were. After the miraculous virgin birth, Mary and Joseph had other children. In Nazareth, the people asked incredulously: And when the Sabbath...Read More
