Government Intervention – A Short Story

As a cautionary tale, I wrote this short story as part of a writing challenge with Faithwriters.com and released it on May 12, 2014.  Given where we are in the world today seven years later (October 1, 2021), I thought it might be instructive to publish this here on my blog.  At the conclusion of…

Ephesians 2:2 – The Sons of Disobedience

The extent to which dark spiritual forces influence the world isn’t well understood.  Most Christians acknowledge that the enemy, Satan, our adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).  Because the Bible places so much emphasis on Satan – which is certainly not unjustified – few people…

Isaiah 10:5 – The Rod of His Anger

God sometimes uses the unjust to punish those He loves because they, too, have been unjust. A statement like this may not go down well with many in today’s modern church.  Surely, if God loves us, He wouldn’t allow others who hate Him to harm His elect!  How could that be?  Our God is a…

Isaiah 9:10 – The Bricks Have Fallen

Some of you are familiar with the book written several years ago by Jonathan Cahn called The Harbinger (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005IYEQKI/).  In examining the ancient prophecies of Israel, Cahn saw a parallel warning that applied to America.  His book and explanation were controversial, but Bible prophecy always is. The initial warning that Isaiah related from the Lord…

Galatians 3:7 – Sons of Abraham

One of the most egregious deceptions going around in Christendom is that since the faith of both Christians and Muslims is descended from Abraham, we are all co-equal sons of God.  This is wrong on so many levels, it’s hard to know where to start, but begin we will. This lie of equivalence is behind…

Isaiah 3:9 – They Proclaim Their Sin

The first several chapters of Isaiah read as if God could be speaking to us today.  God called Isaiah to proclaim Israel’s sin so as to awaken the people to their danger of imminent judgment.  He cared deeply for His children Israel, but they were indifferent.  By this time in their history, God’s Chosen People…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 9-22-21 – Demographic Doomsday

There are two intriguing narratives that may be intersecting to create massive problems in our nation and around the world.  Neither of them is good news, of course, and the one is extremely disturbing, if true. One of the issues facing mankind is global depopulation.  Yes, you’ve heard for years about the so-called population bomb,…

2 Corinthians 13:5 – Test Yourselves

For all the problems the church in Corinth had, with every ounce of his being, Paul wanted to see them walking in righteousness before God.  Given what glimpses we get from his two letters, they had issues!  He repeats the laundry list of vices in 2 Corinthians 12:20 that he had seen: For I fear…

Ecclesiastes 7:25 – The Wickedness of Folly

When Solomon became king at a young age following the death of his father David, he approached God and prayed mightily to Him.  His heart was right with the Lord.  Because of this, Yahweh answered Him.  God declared that since Solomon desired nothing for himself but wisdom in order to govern the people of Israel…
