Luke 10:20 – The Most Important Thing

Jesus demonstrated His authority when He sent out disciples in His Name.  When He first sent out the Twelve, they received from Him the power to cast out demons and cure diseases, but in doing these miracles, their primary purpose was to proclaim the Kingdom of God (Luke 9:1-2).  These were His handpicked men who…

Luke 9:57-62 – Costly Faith

How corrupted the Words and teachings of Jesus have become in these latter days!  For anyone who has read the Bible to think that Jesus came to give us our best life now is a mystery.  Well, maybe not.  Satan’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy.  Certainly his intent is to cause those who…

Judges 9:56-57 – Lethal Curses

Throughout the Old Testament, we see various curses being pronounced; some are by men, some by God.  What we also typically see is a fulfillment of those curses.  So, are curses real, and something we should be concerned about today? The account of Gideon with his victory over the Midianites ends poorly.  God raised up…

Joshua 18:3 – Possession of the Land

God promised His children they would take possession of the land of Canaan.  All that He had told them that He would do since delivering them from slavery in Egypt, He made good on His Word.  Time and again He had demonstrated to the Israelites that they could trust HIm.  God allowed an entire generation…

Luke 4:30 – Through Their Midst

When Jesus began His ministry, He wasted no time riling up the religious community.  In the power of the Holy Spirit following the 40 days of temptation in the wilderness, Jesus soon went into the synagogue on the Sabbath. A report had gone throughout Galilee that He was apparently a holy man.  Have you ever…

Joshua 5:15 – Take Off Your Sandals

To be in the presence of the Lord is an awesome thing.  Coming before the Holy One of Israel must have been a heart-stopping experience.  In many places in the Bible we see mere mortals fall down in wonder when an angel appeared; consider how much more breathtaking it was when God Himself stood before…

Luke 1:45 – She Who Believed

There are some number of us who lament the fact that few in the church today take an interest in Bible prophecy.  We see that as a lack of teaching and preaching from the pulpit, and the subsequent disinterest in the congregation because they’re not inspired to search deeper into the Word of God in…

Mark 14:71 – I Don’t Know This Man

Do you know Jesus?  Peter, one of His closest disciples declared that he didn’t.  Mark 14:71 reveals about Peter: But he began to invoke a curse on himself and to swear, “I do not know this man of whom you speak.” How could that be?  Peter had walked with Jesus for three years.  From the…

Numbers 33:55 – Trouble in the Land

Because of what the Israelites had learned in Egypt over their 400 years of captivity, Yahweh had a deconditioning project to accomplish with them.  They had been in the midst of a pantheon of pagan gods and gotten used to deities whose image they could see.  The verbal history of their people had probably taken…
