What is the Deceitfulness of Riches Anyway?

Posted by Tony L Smith on Friday, December 11, 2015,



The Deceitfulness of Riches. Are you caught in its trap? The truth may surprise you.



The phrase the deceitfulness of riches is used only once to my knowledge and that is in the parable of the sower. The parable in which Jesus said” if you can't understand this parable, how will you understand any of them”

Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfrui...

God's desire living in us

Posted by Tony L Smith on Sunday, December 6, 2015,



Ever since I came to the Lord which was many moons ago and I learnt the Christian lingo, there was these unspoken thought patterns about words and their good or evil meanings that I picked up. Being a man that had his own struggles with sin and trying to get a Christian grip on things I leaned toward the negative side of the word passion and the word desire. To me they just mostly fit into the category of sin.

I finally overcame my one sided view of passion as I came to understand passion f...

Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Garden

Posted by Tony L Smith on Wednesday, December 2, 2015,



When Tyrannosaurus Rex walked through the garden of Eden.

There is a strange occurrence in the book of Genesis after man ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. It is recorded in Gen 3:9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? It appears that God was looking passionately for the man and woman he created as if He missed them or at least was trying to get Adam to respond.

Adam, the man and his wife were in a different mindset which is recorded in ...

The Root of Desire

The Root of Desire



Most of the time we think that we have to ask God to do things for us. To help us with our life, to fix this or fix that. To heal this or that, to give us money, jobs, more strength to live etc..

I am starting to realize that we haven't fully understood our position in him, or his position in us. Sense the father created us, we seem to feel he just set us down here on this earth, gave us a few ability’s, desires, insights and told us to go and have at it. When things don...

The Cry of Son-ship

Deep cries unto deep


Years ago a pastor friend of mine was sharing something he saw while watching a Star Trek episode in which the Enterprise was looking into a gigantic probe that was making a weird sound that wasn't legible to anyone. The noise the probe was making was almost deafening. As the probe approached Earth it was causing all kinds of chaos and would literally destroy the Earth. To get to the point the noise was that made by a particular type of whale which was extinct in that ...

Grace in the Eyes of the Lord

Grace In the Eyes of the Lord

Ahh.. The Grace of the Lord, such an awesome yet misunderstood concept. We usually think that the Grace of God means the mercy of God, and that it causes the Lord to turn a blind eye to our imperfections. Sometimes we think that it means that God saved us and is going to bless us regardless of our disobedience.
While the above thoughts have some truth to them, they are not the whole truth about Grace.
Lets look a little closer.
 Gen 6:8  But Noah found grace in the e...

Wholeness of Mind and Heart

Posted by Tony L Smith on Saturday, February 21, 2015,


I been thinking a lot about wholeness lately and how it relates to faith.
Jesus said  If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7.
Well, we sure do a lot of asking, but don’t do much receiving. It is very apparent that we are not meeting the requirements of these guide lines He put forth.
We explain to ourselves that we must not be in line with the things He wants us to have. Our desires and request must be selfish at best, ...

Some thoughts about the Kingdom

Posted by Tony L Smith on Friday, December 31, 2010,

  I find there is still a lot of confusion among people concerning the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of Heaven.
   Far too many still believe that the Kingdom is the organized church, or organized religion. Some are just satisfied to believe it is the life after death in heaven.
   Kingdom means dominion of a King. If the organized church or religion is the Kingdom of God, then we have a very weak Kingdom, and a weak King.
   These manifestations of church and religion that we have seen thus fa...
