Luke 14:28 – Counting the Cost

It’s an astounding fact that western Christianity has largely made itself no Christianity at all.  How is it that we’ve come from the early church, in which the apostles and the followers of Jesus were severely persecuted, to a place where following Jesus is made to be like having a boy- or girlfriend? In those…

Judges 18:19 – “Keep Quiet”

What is it about so many of the priests and Levites we meet in the book of Judges?  Each one seems to be worse than the next.  Weren’t they supposed to be set apart by God for service to Him because they stood athwart the sin and evil they saw during the incident of the…

Judges 6:31 – Contending for Baal

Why is it that those who follow other gods feel they have to protect their god; that he cannot do the work of protecting himself?  I’m thinking specifically of Islam right now with the followers of Allah, but this certainly applies to every other god.  All of them apparently need their followers to act in…

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…

Numbers 18:5 – Wrath No More

Yahweh had separated the Levites as a unique tribe among the twelve in Israel to serve Him.  Because they had stood against the depravity that the children of Israel engaged in during the incident of the golden calf, God ordained them for service (Exodus 32:29).  The Lord made many pronouncements about what this meant and…

Leviticus 16:8 – For Azazel

For those of you who read Leviticus closely, you may have wondered about the passage we’ll discuss today.  Leviticus 16:8 (ESV) reports the Lord commanding Moses: And Aaron shall cast lots over the two goats, one lot for the Lord and the other lot for Azazel. “But wait,” you say, “my Bible (i.e. NIV, KJV,…

Exodus 23:32-33 – The Snare of Other Gods

From the very first when God called His children out of Egypt, the most important commandment He gave was that they should follow no other gods but Him.  This was so important that Yahweh enshrined this ordinance as the first two of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:3-4: “You shall have no other gods before…

Exodus 12:12 – Judgments Upon the gods

In delivering His children from the fiery furnace of slavery in Egypt, God had very specific objectives to accomplish through the Exodus.  The Egyptians served other gods.  They did not know or worship Yahweh.  The Hebrew people had lived in that environment for 430 years.  In their verbal history, they knew of Yahweh, but had…

Exodus 2:3,10 – What Moses Represents

Certain incidents in the Bible often foreshadow other events yet to come.  This idea comprises the concept of typology.  Typology is a symbolic representation, usually showing something in the Old Testament in one manner to portray what will happen in the New Testament. An familiar example of typology may be the Exodus of the Hebrew…
