Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-11-21: Puppet Master Conspiracy

By now we should be able to put to rest the lie concerning COVID and the so-called vaccine that those who don’t believe the government narrative are conspiracy theorists.  When we look at the big picture, there’s obviously something going on.  When literally every government leader around the world; the major medical authorities worldwide such…

Acts 21:32 – Ran Down to Them

I’ve written on this topic in other places, but today’s reading offers another opportunity to present an intriguing concept.  The general historical belief is that the 1st and 2nd temples in Jerusalem were built on the Temple Mount.  This has been ingrained in both Muslim and Jewish minds over the centuries.  It’s one of the…

Acts 7:54 – They Ground Their Teeth

An anti-God spirit runs deep throughout the world.  It is true that each human being made in the image of God has what some have termed “a God-shaped hole” in his heart, and the one who fills it with the love of Christ will receive abundantly over and above what he expects.  However, there is…

Genesis 39:3 – The Lord’s Favor

When bad things happen to us, we cry out with the age-old question, “Why me, Lord?”  Perhaps we’ve served God well and faithfully and haven’t deviated from Him.  It could even be said that we walked in His righteousness; we’ve lived and been upright in the Name of Christ.  Then the roof caves in over…

Genesis 37:18 and Matthew 12:14 – Conspiracy

When the prophet tells us in Jeremiah 17:9 that “the heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?”, the truth he speaks is from of old, arising from the very first sin and the fall of man.  Yet, many people don’t believe this about the human condition.  They choose to…

Genesis 35:9-11 & Matthew 11:20-24 – Which God?

There’s a deep connection between Genesis 35:9-11 and Matthew 11:20-24.  In Genesis we read: “God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Paddan-aram, and blessed him. And God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; no longer shall your name be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name.” So he called his name…

Matthew 10:28 – Fear

Jesus knew the price His followers would have to pay in this wicked world.  The promise of eternal life in Him comes with a high cost.  Yet, Jesus said that it’s worth every penny we own and every drop of blood running through our veins.  Who we fear and bow down to, even in great…

Genesis 24:6,8 – Old Life Before Christ

There are many principles that God illustrates to us through the lives and actions of the people who populate the Old Testament.  In Genesis 24:6,8 we see one of these principles enacted through Abraham’s servant Eliezer when Abraham sent him to the place of his extended family in Ur to seek a wife for his…

Matthew 7 – Destruction or Safety

The statement by Jesus in Matthew 7:13-14 is one of the hardest in the Bible for people to wrap their minds around.  He tells us: “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate…

Matthew 6:24 – Believing Loyalty

When Jesus speaks about the problem of serving two masters in Matthew 6:24, His teaching goes to the heart of our relationship with God: “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot…
