1 Corinthians 15:24 – Then Comes the End

Can you imagine life without death?  Such a day is coming.  Because Christ lived, died, and rose again, the end of death is a reality otherwise impossible.  It’s been rightly said that the entirety of the Christian faith rests on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  He is an historical figure.  He was a man wise…

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…

Psalm 94:13 – Until A Pit Is Dug

One of the many truths the psalms teach us is the glory and majesty of the Lord.   They exalt Him above every other god and show us that only through Him do we have any hope.  We learn that other spiritual beings have pretensions of replacing God, and that through their demonic influence, man…

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…

Romans 8:14 – Sons of God

Scripture refers to the sons of God in both the Old and New Testaments.  When we see this term in either place, it has very different connotations and yet, ultimately, the same meaning.  It’s very curious how the Bible speaks of this phrase under the two covenants.  Why?  Human beings are not in view when…

Deuteronomy 32:17 – Gods They Had Never Known

Have I said this before?  I’m sure I have.  Context when reading the Bible is everything.  Consider The Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32.  Yahweh instructed Moses to recite the words of this song to all Israel (Deuteronomy 31:30).  They were Words of warning to God’s children because He knew their hearts and how unfaithful…

Leviticus 20:26 – Holy To the Lord

One of the commands that God has consistently given to His people, whether Israelites or Christ-followers, is for us to remain apart from those who are unbelievers.  This command is captured in Leviticus 20:26 where Yahweh instructs: “You shall be holy to me, for I the Lord am holy and have separated you from the…

Exodus 7:5,16 – The God of the Hebrews

The peoples of the earth served gods that were not the Lord God, Yahweh, the great I AM.  Rather, their allegiance was to the sons of God (bene Elohim) who were over the nations.  Following the Tower of Babel incident in Genesis 11, in which man was disobedient to God and did go out into…

Idols: Then & Now

In our westernized, Christian worldview, the idols of old made of stone and wood make little sense.  We wonder how the peoples of the Ancient Near East (ANE) could be so foolish as to think that a statue of some sort was worthy of worship.  How stupid could they have been back in those days? …

America’s Fate: A Mashup of Ideas – Part 4 of 4

The final essay of this 4-part series attempts to bring together the ideas presented in the first three parts.  The elements in the mashup about America’s fate come from the books The Fourth Turning, The Unseen Realm, and This Present Darkness.  They derive from secular, Biblical non-fiction, and Christian fiction concepts.  Is it any wonder…
