Satan’s Jealousy of Man

Just think of the magnificence of the Garden.  Everything in the earth was new and glorious, fresh from the Creator’s mind and hand.  How amazing that must have been!  To top that off, God made man, the epitome of all that He had conceived. Observing everything that God had done, His divine sons cheered.  They…

Replacement Theology in the Deuteronomy 32 Worldview

When we approach the Bible with what is known as the Deuteronomy 32 worldview, we understand why Replacement Theology is so prevalent today.  Replacement Theology takes the Biblically false view that Israel no longer has a place in God’s plans and purposes because 1) Israel blew it, and 2) the Church has taken her place….

Ezra’s Conundrum

The story of Ezra returning to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple has a disturbing account at the end of the book.  The leaders come to Ezra and inform him in Ezra 9:1-2 (ESV) that: “The people of Israel and the priests and the Levites have not separated themselves from the peoples of the lands with…

Paul’s Mars Hill Declaration of Deuteronomy 32:8

The Apostle Paul was a product of the Ancient Near East.  He understood the neighborhood in which he lived.  He knew there was a supernatural world and worldview that greatly influenced the lives of those to whom he witnessed.  This is fully on display when Paul goes to Athens and engages the Greeks on the…

The Lord was quite clear to Saul when He called him on the road to Damascus where he became the…

God’s Divine Family Council

In the Book of Job, we get a glimpse of how God’s Divine Council works.  Somewhere in the beginning, God created the heavenly host.  Whether this was before the account of creation that we read about in Genesis or during, we don’t know.  Since Scripture is silent about God creating His divine family, it’s likely…

Spirit Baptism In the Deuteronomy 32 Worldview

Since reading The Unseen Realm by Dr. Michael S. Heiser, which rocked the way I view Scripture, I’ve begun considering how the Deuteronomy 32 worldview applies to other aspects of what I believe.  Even as Dr. Heiser says that we who have an eschatological view of the Bible look at it through certain systems we’ve…

New Age Spirituality & the Sons of God

The New Age movement, i.e. the New Spirituality, isn’t really so new.  Its roots go back to antiquity.  They weave throughout the Bible.  And they manifest in various world religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism.  These roots are fascinating and deadly. In order to see the nature of these roots, we have to look at…

The Blasphemy of Jesus

When reading Matthew 26 where Jesus is brought before the Sanhedrin for them to judge Him, no doubt you’ve seen the extreme reaction by Caiaphas the high priest.  Caiaphas is interrogating Jesus and is getting frustrated because He doesn’t say a word in His defense.  Finally, in this confrontation Caiaphas has had enough.  Matthew 26:62-66…
