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…

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 5:13 – One Who Bears the Name of Brother

How shocked Paul was when he heard what was happening in his beloved church at Corinth!  He knew they were born again, but what in the world were they thinking?  How could they possibly countenance certain activities going on in their midst?  Paul minced no words.  They must deal with the sin in their congregation…

Acts 23:12 – Made A Plot

The Apostle Paul had his share of hostility directed at him.  Wherever he went preaching the Word of God and proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord, there were inevitably some (or many!) who took offense at what he said.  Paul was the poster boy for what Jesus declared about Himself and the Gospel in Luke 12:51:…

Acts 15:20 – Abstinence Instructions

God long ago said that His intention was to redeem all of mankind to Him and that He would use the Jews to eventually do this.  When God began working through the evangelistic efforts of the apostles, it seems like it took them by surprise.  Apparently, they had forgotten what God had said in this…

John 11:27: Yes Lord, I Believe

An argument that many of the feminist persuasion make is that the Bible, and by association, all of ancient Israel, was paternalistic and that women were degraded – nothing but chattel – almost on the equivalent of slaves.  In their thinking, the culture that Scripture portrays is rife with offensives because women were housebound and…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-26-21: Future According to Georgia Guidestones

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-26-21: The Future According to the Georgia Guidestones The Georgia Guidestones are mysterious and “strangely” aligned with the globalist agenda. Most people and groups telegraph their intentions. Unfortunately we have a tendency to not believe people when then they tell us things that don’t fit our preconceived notions. In the case…

Luke 18:19 – Good Person Test

Many people think that because they’re a “good person,” they’ll go to heaven.  Even large numbers in the Christian community believe that’s the way to eternal life.  Of course, if they read the Bible and believed what Jesus and Paul said, they’d know the truth.  In John 3:3, Jesus told Nicodemus: “Truly, truly, I say…

Deuteronomy 27:2-3 – Stones on Mount Ebal

When Yahweh delivered His children Israel from Egypt, He showed them clearly how He was different from every other god.  For four hundred years they had been immersed in a culture that worshiped the creation.  God declared there is One who made all of creation, and they were to lift only His Name on high. …

Deuteronomy 7:14 – Blessed Above All Peoples

The Lord wanted to bless His children Israel.  He told them time and again all that He wanted to do for them.  When they responded positively to His giving them the Ten Commandments, listen to the yearning of Yahweh’s heart in Deuteronomy 5:29: “Oh that they had such a heart as this always, to fear…
