1 Corinthians 11:32 – Condemned Along With the World

The taking of Communion is a serious matter.  Partaking of it in the right manner may impact our very health and longevity; the context that Paul outlines implies that it may also have implications in how Jesus judges the world in the Tribulation. When Paul learned how the Corinthians were coming together for the Lord’s…

Psalm 147:11 – Those Who Fear Him

Do you want to know one of the reasons the church in America is so weak?  I believe it relates directly to how believers view God in their relationship with Him.  Over the years the Bible has been attacked on all sides.  It has been questioned as to how reliable it is.  Did so and…

1 Corinthians 7:29 – The Appointed Time Has Grown Very Short

Because of the pagan lifestyle from which the church in Corinth emerged, Paul had much to teach them about living in holiness and righteousness.  They had immorality among them that they apparently didn’t recognize as such.  There were issues among some of the women in church exhibiting improper conduct by speaking out of turn.  What…

Psalm 119:104 – I Get Understanding

Psalm 119 is like the meditation of a faithful man who relates how he remains steadfast in the Lord.  In the psalm he describes his encounters with those who hate him, and the response that he gives and lives.  Because it’s a writing of the Old Testament, i.e. of the Old Covenant, we can miss…

1 Corinthians 2:8 – Rulers of This Age

Those who oppose God inevitably believe they are smarter than Him.  They devise plans that oppose His will and think that He doesn’t see and know them.  This is part of their foolishness.  If the Lord knows how many hairs each of us has on our heads (Luke 12:7), then might He not also know…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-18-21: Last Trumpet or Pre-Trib Rapture?

It’s been a while since I did a straight-up teaching on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Because of the varying views on the Rapture as to its timing, whenever I comment on the truth that the Rapture must occur prior to the 7-year Tribulation, I inevitably get messages wherever the video is posted by those who think…

Romans 15:4 – Written For Our Instruction

God gives us His Word – the entire Word – for a reason.  There may be parts of Scripture where we wonder what it’s doing in there or how it applies to us, but for someone, somehow, it does pertain, so it’s all useful.  Paul’s letter to the Romans variously addressed both the Jewish believers…

Romans 13:1 – Governing Authorities

The subject of discussion in this commentary is a minefield.  I’m well aware that pastors and theologians have differing views and ways of understanding what Paul says in Romans 13:1-2: Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-11-21: Puppet Master Conspiracy

By now we should be able to put to rest the lie concerning COVID and the so-called vaccine that those who don’t believe the government narrative are conspiracy theorists.  When we look at the big picture, there’s obviously something going on.  When literally every government leader around the world; the major medical authorities worldwide such…

Psalm 91:9 – Because…

Many people use Psalm 91 almost as a magical saying.  Especially in this Age of COVID, the psalm has taken on meaning as an incantation in people’s thinking that it was never intended to do.  Can someone simply repeat the words and obtain special/supernatural protection?  Of course not!  Yet, that is what some believe and…
