Colossians 1:20 – Reconciliation

Let’s connect something that Paul says in the amazing first chapter of Colossians with our reading today from Isaiah.  We can do that because the Scriptures are an integrated compilation overseen by the Holy Spirit with no contradictions.  They maintain consistency from the first to the last.  God breathed into them and we can trust…

Isaiah 40:18 – To Whom Will You Liken God?

A full page ad in our complimentary copy of The Epoch Times caught my eye.  The top half displayed the name Shen Yun and a beautiful Chinese dancer in mid-leap.  The text below the fold said: “China Before Communism.”  It went on to mysteriously say: China was once called “Land of the Divine.”  There was…

Isaiah 37:26 – Have You Not Heard?

For those who think they plot and perform their evil in secret, I have news for them.  God sees it all.  They believe that their ways are higher than God’s – can you imagine?  From time immemorial, man has chosen his own way of living and decided he has no accountability to the God of…

Isaiah 34:2 – The Lord is Enraged

For you who are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, who washed and cleansed you through the salvation you freely accepted, I ask these questions: Is the Lord enraged at you?  Does His wrath rest upon you?  Has Jesus forgiven your sins so as to keep you from God’s day of judgment?  If your…

Ephesians 6:11 – The Schemes of the Devil

There should be no one reading this commentary who doesn’t see how darkness has risen in this land – indeed, throughout the entire world.  Many who are secular apprehend that something is amiss, but they cannot describe it or adequately respond to it.  Believers in Christ Jesus, however, have no excuse.  If our guidebook is…

Isaiah 28:15 – A Covenant With Death

Most people who follow Bible prophecy are aware that the trigger for the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation is the covenant that Antichrist confirms between Israel and an entity described as the “many.”  We famously see this in Daniel 9:27: And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half…

Government Intervention – A Short Story

As a cautionary tale, I wrote this short story as part of a writing challenge with Faithwriters.com and released it on May 12, 2014.  Given where we are in the world today seven years later (October 1, 2021), I thought it might be instructive to publish this here on my blog.  At the conclusion of…

Ephesians 2:2 – The Sons of Disobedience

The extent to which dark spiritual forces influence the world isn’t well understood.  Most Christians acknowledge that the enemy, Satan, our adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).  Because the Bible places so much emphasis on Satan – which is certainly not unjustified – few people…

Isaiah 13:20 – Babylon Never Again Inhabited

What is the eschatological secret of Babylon?  Many have tried to understand this over the years.  I confess that I am one of them.  There are two primary narratives as to what is end-times Babylon.  What is most popular?  Which account makes the most sense – at least to me? Babylon has a long and…
