Matthew 25:12,30 – Two More Rapture Warnings

How anyone can read the New Testament and come away not seeing the many instances where the pre-Tribulation Rapture is discussed, nor the warnings associated with it, is beyond me.  Today, I want to briefly illustrate two more instances that point to this blessed event, yet the dire outcome for those who don’t believe in…

Matthew 22:1-14 – Parable of the Wedding Feast

As was usually the case, when Jesus spoke to the crowds, the religious rulers were right there, listening, critically examining, and scheming how to use His Words against Him.  The Pharisees and chief priests may not have understood all that Jesus implied in His parables, but they did get the point that He was often…

Exodus 25-26 – God’s Mercy Seat

In reading detailed descriptions in the Bible, lists of laws, or genealogies, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the text.  Often, people attempting to read their entire Bible get bogged down in these portions of Scripture and lose their resolve to remain faithful to God’s Word.  What I typically recommend for these passages initially is…

Exodus 23:32-33 – The Snare of Other Gods

From the very first when God called His children out of Egypt, the most important commandment He gave was that they should follow no other gods but Him.  This was so important that Yahweh enshrined this ordinance as the first two of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:3-4: “You shall have no other gods before…

Exodus 20:18-21 – Near or Far from God

As God was introducing Himself to the Israelites during the Exile through various encounters, in which Moses was the intermediary, an interesting dynamic comes into focus.  The passage in Exodus 20:18-21 gives us an indication of this interplay: “Now when all the people saw the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of…

Exodus 13:9 – A Sign on Hand & Forehead

As Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt, God communicated several key points He wanted them to recognize.  They were to remember this day through the eating of unleavened bread and the consecration of their firstborn.  God wanted them to know that He was bringing them into a land of His choosing through…

Exodus 12:12 – Judgments Upon the gods

In delivering His children from the fiery furnace of slavery in Egypt, God had very specific objectives to accomplish through the Exodus.  The Egyptians served other gods.  They did not know or worship Yahweh.  The Hebrew people had lived in that environment for 430 years.  In their verbal history, they knew of Yahweh, but had…

Matthew 16:18 – The Gates of Hell

One of the most misunderstood verses in the Bible is Matthew 16:18 where Jesus, speaking to Peter and His disciples, says: “And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Most of us are aware that the Catholic…

Exodus 2:3,10 – What Moses Represents

Certain incidents in the Bible often foreshadow other events yet to come.  This idea comprises the concept of typology.  Typology is a symbolic representation, usually showing something in the Old Testament in one manner to portray what will happen in the New Testament. An familiar example of typology may be the Exodus of the Hebrew…
