2 Corinthians 6:16 – What Accord Has Christ With Belial?

The world is a subtle and tempting place.  It has its pleasures, and men desire them.  The allure of worldly things has caused many a person to stumble and fall.  It’s bad enough when someone secular succumbs and his end is grievous, it’s certainly worse when a Christian does so since he should know better….

Proverbs 24:11 – Rescue Those Taken Away to Death

The times in which we live are creating multiple schisms. We have the big one of the day being between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. There are many who are working hard to cause this rift to be even greater. They want a bifurcated society, not of haves and have-nots, but of the jabbed and…

2 Corinthians 4:18 – Things That Are Unseen

What we see happening around us in the world can be overwhelming. There are times it takes our breath away. We ask, “How could this possibly happen?” “Is anyone in charge?” “What next?” It seems that from one week to the next, things get worse. “Is there no end to this?” “Can’t we get back…

2 Corinthians 3:14 – Their Minds Were Hardened

The nation of Israel had everything going for it.  After all, when God has specially chosen you to be the focus and recipient of the purpose and destiny He has planned for mankind, surely He would pour out incredible mercy and goodness upon you.  That’s certainly the case, but Israel squandered it. God gave Moses…

2 Corinthians 2:15 – The Aroma of Christ

Have you ever stopped to think why certain people hate true believers in Jesus Christ so much?  The ultimate answer is that these non-believers are infused with the spirit of Satan.  Because he is such a hater of God with all He has made and done, this anti-God fervor infects and infests those who have…

2 Corinthians 1:9 – The Sentence of Death

If you look around and think the world has gone nuts, you’re probably right.  As we near the end of history as we know it, with the soon-coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the veil of deception has overshadowed the vision of most of secular society.  The very thing that Jesus warned about is occurring. …

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 9-8-21: Biblical Curses Upon America

America has entered a time of Biblical judgment.  We are not Israel.  The US is not a theocratic state.  However, our nation was founded on Biblical principles.  God in His wisdom provides patterns of blessings and judgments so that all who read and understand His Word can see the parallels from the past to the…

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…

1 Corinthians 15:53 – Imperishable Immortality

The future that God has for His children is one that we can discuss and speculate about, but until it actually happens, we cannot truly comprehend how marvelous it will be.  Paul describes the process of our joining with Christ and becoming like Him by likening the metamorphosis we’ll undergo to that of a seed…

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…
