2 Corinthians 7:10 – Godly Grief

In his first letter to the church in Corinth, Paul expressed shock at what he had heard the congregation found acceptable in the actions of some around them.  There was sexual immorality in their midst, and they weren’t addressing it.  Paul said this must be corrected.  The man committing this sin – since he was…

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….

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…

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 15:24 – 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…

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…

Proverbs 6:18 – Six Things That the Lord Hates

Don’t be fooled by the title; it’s actually seven things that are an abomination to God, as outlined in Proverbs 6:16-19: There are six things that the Lord hates,     seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue,     and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans,     feet that…

Proverbs 1:26 – Laughing at Calamity

The Lord minces no words as to how He blesses those who honor Him and curses those who despise Him.  The opening chapters of Proverbs spell out for us the ways God does this.  They also prompt the question: Why would any not follow the ways of the Lord?  The answer is that those who…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 9-1-21: FDA’s Pfizer Fraud

As sometimes happens, I had another topic planned for this week’s Prophecy Update, but an issue of greater importance has taken precedence.  As many of you know, the FDA has purportedly given its approval to the Pfizer so-called vaccine.  This is a fraud and a sham which will mislead many, so I wanted to speak…
