1 Corinthians 5:13 – One Who Bears the Name of Brother

How shocked Paul was when he heard what was happening in his beloved church at Corinth!  He knew they were born again, but what in the world were they thinking?  How could they possibly countenance certain activities going on in their midst?  Paul minced no words.  They must deal with the sin in their congregation…

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…

Romans 2:11 – God Shows No Partiality

If you’ve been watching the culture and hearing those around us decry the sins of man – if you believed them – you would certainly think that God shows partiality.  Of what sin am I speaking?  Really, just one.  The sin of whiteness.  Oh, my.  Do you know what “the third rail” is when someone…

Acts 14:9 – Faith To Be Made Well

What is the nature of true faith? How do we know if we really have it or not? What is the way that it manifests? The answer to these questions comes through our text today, plus we see it very clearly in a well-known Old Testament passage. Paul and Barnabas had fled to Lystra from…

Job 28:20 – From Where Does Wisdom Come?

Why does wisdom seem so elusive?  There is so much knowledge in the world, but smart people appear devoid of wisdom.  Man has extensive capabilities to discover the unknown, yet common sense is a rarity.  What are we to make of that? Job provided the answer in one of his monologues to his friends.  Although…

Job 4:6 – Fear of God Your Confidence

Once Job had been clobbered with disaster, some of his friends heard about his plight and came to give him comfort.  At first they reacted in a way that truly gave Job solace. We see this in Job 2:13: And they sat with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, and no one…

John 19:14 – The Day of Preparation

God’s plan and His timing are seen through the ages, if we only have eyes to see. The day that Jesus came before Pilate was significant in the Hebrew calendar. The Jews had gathered in Jerusalem for Passover, which had been initiated many years ago by God on the cusp of the Exodus. Of course,…

2 Chronicles 24:17 – Advice of the Princes

Throughout Scripture we see the good and the bad decisions that people make in their lives. Unfortunately, because of man’s sinful nature, many more poor choices come to light in the pages of the Bible. This is readily apparent in the life of King Joash of Judah. Joash was crowned king as a young child….

Cyber Polygon: The Next Globalist War Game & Catastrophe?

Please read and take this article as a warning.  It’s something I’ve discussed in my weekly Awaken Bible Prophecy Updates as a potential “next big thing” coming from the globalist elites.  These people have tasted blood.  They will not stop now until they get what they want.  What that will be is actually judgment from…

John 12:8 – The Poor With Us

Whatever events happened around Him, Jesus always used them to teach about the kingdom of God. That which He taught His disciples then is useful for us today in one form or another. One compelling incident occurred among those in His inner circle just before His triumphal entry into Jerusalem at Passover before His crucifixion….
