Mark 4:26-29 – How Grows the Kingdom?

Many have attempted over the years to thwart the growth of God’s Kingdom.  Incited by Satan and his minions, men have done all in their power to keep the Gospel from going forth and “infecting” others.  The topic reminds me of numerous examples where – on the surface – it appears as though the God…

Numbers 5:15 – Trial by Ordeal

Certain passages of the Bible make us shake our heads in confusion before we move on in our reading, because we don’t understand what’s going on at a deeper level.  In our westernized Christianity, we don’t have the appropriate context to discern the true intent; rather than digging deeper, we add these things to our…

Numbers 3:12 – Redemption by Levite

When the Lord redeemed the children of Israel from the fiery furnace of slavery in Egypt, because of the blood He shed of the Egyptian firstborn, the Israelites incurred a debt that had to be paid.  Yahweh informed Moses of this in Exodus 13:1-2 The Lord said to Moses, “Consecrate to me all the firstborn….

Numbers 2:2,17 – At the Center

We first encounter the term “tent of meeting” in Exodus 33:7-11 as the tent that Moses pitched outside the camp, where he would seek the Lord and speak with Him face to face.  This tent was the temporary tabernacle of God that was a place of worship and where He dwelt.  When Moses entered the…

Leviticus 27:28-29 – Surely Be Put To Death

Leviticus brings us God’s holy laws for the Israelites.  When they obeyed His laws and walked in the ways that He commanded, He promised His people great blessings.  If they turned from God to follow other gods and chose to live as they wanted, God made it abundantly clear that He would punish them with…

Mark 1:34 – Demonic Origins

The question arises, “Where did demons come from?”  In reading the Bible, there seems to be no origin for these nasty beings; all of a sudden they appear to do Satan’s bidding and torment mankind.  The reality is that there is a clear and rational explanation, but it all has to do with interpreting Scripture…

Mark 1:4 – Baptism of Repentance

Do you know what has largely been lost in these ending days of the Church Age?  Do you understand why so many are falling away and churches becoming apostate?  There’s a very simple answer. One message was preached from the beginning of the Gospels that was a necessary requirement for entering the Kingdom of Heaven. …

Leviticus 20:26 – Holy To the Lord

One of the commands that God has consistently given to His people, whether Israelites or Christ-followers, is for us to remain apart from those who are unbelievers.  This command is captured in Leviticus 20:26 where Yahweh instructs: “You shall be holy to me, for I the Lord am holy and have separated you from the…

Leviticus 18:22 – Abomination

In this day and age, this essay cannot be written and the words spoken, otherwise, the wrath of the woke crowd is aroused.  Too bad.  Let’s talk about what the Bible says about depravity. Leviticus 18 is a forbidden chapter by anyone who desires to live according to the gospel of self and not the…

Leviticus 16:8 – For Azazel

For those of you who read Leviticus closely, you may have wondered about the passage we’ll discuss today.  Leviticus 16:8 (ESV) reports the Lord commanding Moses: And Aaron shall cast lots over the two goats, one lot for the Lord and the other lot for Azazel. “But wait,” you say, “my Bible (i.e. NIV, KJV,…
