1 Kings 9:8 – Heap of Ruins

Solomon spent seven years building the temple of the Lord in Jerusalem (1 Kings 6:38). When he had finished, he dedicated the house to the Lord.  In his prayers of dedication, Solomon acknowledged the natural inclination of the people to sin, and he pleaded with Yahweh to forgive them in their human failures.  We see…

Luke 21:34 – Dissipation

As Jesus continued to speak to His disciples on the Mount of Olives about the things to come, He warned of the days during the Great Tribulation, and what they would be like in Israel. The last 3 1/2 years of this most horrible time ever to come upon the earth will be particularly difficult…

Luke 21:9 – Things That Must Occur

Are we close to the return of Jesus? If we believe what He said to His disciples on the Mount of Olives, we certainly are. The parallel passage in Luke to Jesus’ conversation with His disciples in Matthew 24 starts with them praising the temple in Jerusalem and how beautiful it is.  Jesus shocks them…

Luke 20:19 – Prophetic Fulfillment

The parables that Jesus spoke were for the purpose of veiling His Words so that an unbelieving people wouldn’t be given truth that would do them no good. Mark 4:10-12 illustrates this: And when he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables. And he said to them, “To you…

Luke 18:7 – Crying for Justice

To anyone whose head isn’t buried in the sand, the world is growing darker.  There are those who take the unbiblical view that God will halt this progression into greater wickedness and bring an amazing revival.  However, all one must do is read his Bible to see that in these latter days, no such event…

Luke 17:32 – Remember Lot’s Wife

There are several passages that we look at to give us a deeper understanding of Jesus’ return.  Luke 17 is one of them.  In this chapter, it’s the Pharisees who first ask Him about the coming Kingdom of God, rather than His disciples who do so in Matthew 24.  Jesus’ cryptic response is that it…

1 Samuel 12:21 – Empty Things

“And do not turn aside after empty things that cannot profit or deliver, for they are empty.” (1 Samuel 12:21) How the world loves to pursue empty things!  All of humanity has a void in their heart and seeks to fill it, yet they almost always seek to do so in ways that don’t include…

Luke 12:46 – Cut to Pieces

When I read Luke 12:35-48, sub-headed in the ESV as You Must Be Ready, the passage inevitably disturbs me.  Jesus was speaking to His disciples and relating a parable that reflected directly upon His return from heaven.  The parable deals with the master who has gone away for his wedding feast and the servants who…

Luke 11:50-51 – The Doomed Generation

On the heels of Jesus describing the people of His time as an evil generation because they sought a sign from God – despite having seen many signs from Yahweh in the person of Jesus – He condemned them.  He said that the queen of Sheba and the men of Nineveh would rise up in…
