Important Bible Words


My first word is MERCY, because it is usually the first word God uses when talking about how He brought salvation to His people, by His MERCY; “not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior;” and the meaning words for MERCY are forbearance, clemency, and leniency can be granted to guilty person for any offence.

My next word is PROPITIATION and that was accomplished on the Cross when Christ gave His life for us, to satisfy an offended one; meaning God, on our behalf; “Whom God hath set forth to be a PROPITIATION through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.” The meaning for PROPITIATION is to gain or regain the favor of an offended one by the shedding of blood which Christ did, and paid our debt our offense on Golgotha.

The next word is RECONCILIATION, this is an action that brings two or more things together that has been separated for a space of time; “Wherefore in all things it behooved Him to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make RECONCILIATION for the sins of the people.” So Christ reconciled us back to His Father, which in turn gave us back His son Jesus Christ who saved us. So RECONCILIATION is the taking care of a matter that has caused a separation between two parties. Meaning to restore, or renew a relationship.

Some folks believe God Predestinated ALL things whatsoever happens whether such ever comes to pass or not. They say "do you believe what is to be won't be?" The True Primitive Baptist Church teaches ONLY what God's Holy Word says and no more. God predestinated His People ONLY, not things or events in TIME. Rom. 8:28-30; Eph. 1:4, 11.

"That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." (1st Corinthians 1:31)

Man is always wanting to glory in something. It is usually his self or something that he has done. Then there are times that we glory in what we possess, what our friends possess, or what our family possesses. Yet we find that all these possessions are worldly and perish with using. But Paul says; "He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord," As we glory in the Lord we find possessions that are eternal, treasures that never fade away, thoughts that comfort the heart, and brings peace to the soul. The Lord is worthy of our praise, worthy of all the glory that he receives and he will never leave us nor forsake us because we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto all good works.

Brother George

In Romans chapter 12 and verse 18 we read; If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. It seems that sometimes that it is pretty easy to live peaceably with the members of the church in which you attend. It might even be easy to enjoy the peace and fellowship of our sister Churches in Christ and indeed we need to strive for peace and fellowship for all Primitive Baptists people throughout, but this text says; If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.


Live Peaceably

With All Men


How about the people that live across the street or down the road from us? Is it not just as important to strive to have peace with them as it is with the Church of Jesus Christ? In 1st Timothy chapter 3, verse 7 Paul says; moreover he must have a good report of them, which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. Do you suppose that a person can have peace and unity in the church if he is always fighting with his neighbors? Have you ever had someone that lived next to you that always kept you upset with the way that they act, do, or present him or herself? Do you sometimes just want to strike back and get even? Does it sometimes flow over into the church that you attend and you will snap back at a loving church member that you highly esteem in the Lord?

Well, what about the ones in the world that hate what you believe and stand for? Especially when they ridicule and make light of salvation by grace. Do you realize that the mark of a true disciple is to be a people that strive for peace in or out of the church of Jesus Christ? In verse 19 thru 21 the apostle says; Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. Do you realize that the only way that we can overcome evil is by doing well?

“About Work”


• Work happens when a force is exerted and something is moved: So I guess there is not much work going on, when all the junk that needed picking up, is still laying where it was.

• Maybe that is why we fall short on good works sometimes; cause self is usually the hardest thing there is to move.

• Some people want to work by talkin' it out, but the Lord is the only one I ever heard of, moving things by talkin' to 'em.

• Ever notice when there is more talking there is less work; and when there is more working there is less talk.

• Daddy said: “Folks think us Old Baptists don't believe in works; but the best way there is to PASS time, is to KEEP MOVING.”
