1 Corinthians 16:9 – And There Are Many Adversaries

The preaching of the Gospel always brings opposition, even strife.  What is Good News to some is anathema to many.  For all those who are broken and in great need of the Word of God, there are also those who want nothing to do with the ways of the Lord.  Paul in 1 Corinthians 16:9…

Proverbs 7:27 – The Way to Sheol

Proverbs 7-8 provides the contrast between one who is faithful and one who is not.  These chapters speak of the adulteress and the woman called Wisdom.  The adulteress is always scheming how to gain illicit love; Wisdom demonstrates the benefits of seeking righteousness.  When the master of the adulteress’ house leaves, she diligently prepares for…

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 10:20 – They Offer to Demons

Too many people think they can live a so-called Christian life with one foot in God’s camp and one foot in the camp of demons.  Whether from ignorance or hubris, the church has been largely compromised over the years.  This has resulted in a Christian faith that accepts non-Biblical practices as though they come from…

Psalm 20:7 – Some Trust in Horses

In psalm after psalm we see that David exhibited his faith in the Lord.  Although in his descriptions, we understand that he faced many difficulties, from enemies that pursued him to those who betrayed him.  Yet, the common theme throughout the psalms David wrote is his believing loyalty to Yahweh. Men rose up on every…

2 Chronicles 32:7 – More With Us

Today, I’d like to make two points from our reading that are, perhaps, more related than they appear on the surface. The first has to do with King Hezekiah’s faith; the second deals with his son Manasseh and his relationship to God. Hezekiah is considered one of the most righteous kings of Judah with all…

We’re going to consider some of the aspects of the very public push to achieve immortality with the intention of kicking God out of the equation for good. In so doing, we’re going…

2 Kings 23:25 – No King Like Him

Before him there was no king like him, who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his might, according to all the Law of Moses, nor did any like him arise after him. (2 Kings 23:25) This verse indicates the high regard that God had for…

2 Kings 22:11 – He Tore His Clothes

When was the time you learned the Word of the Lord and tore your clothes?  It doesn’t have to be a literal tearing of your garments, rather it could be the moment of greatest brokenness or understanding in your life that caused you to turn to God and confess Jesus Christ as your Savior.  You…
