1 Corinthians 15:24 – Then Comes the End

Can you imagine life without death?  Such a day is coming.  Because Christ lived, died, and rose again, the end of death is a reality otherwise impossible.  It’s been rightly said that the entirety of the Christian faith rests on the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  He is an historical figure.  He was a man wise…

Proverbs 7:27 – The Way to Sheol

Proverbs 7-8 provides the contrast between one who is faithful and one who is not.  These chapters speak of the adulteress and the woman called Wisdom.  The adulteress is always scheming how to gain illicit love; Wisdom demonstrates the benefits of seeking righteousness.  When the master of the adulteress’ house leaves, she diligently prepares for…

Proverbs 6:18 – Six Things That the Lord Hates

Don’t be fooled by the title; it’s actually seven things that are an abomination to God, as outlined in Proverbs 6:16-19: There are six things that the Lord hates,     seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue,     and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans,     feet that…

Proverbs 3:7 – Wise In Your Own Eyes

How the world loves its self-wisdom!  We look at Proverbs and all the cautions that God provides to keep us from going our own way, and what does man do?  He goes his own way.  In so many passages of the Bible, the Lord shows His care and concern for His creation by admonishing people…

Proverbs 1:26 – Laughing at Calamity

The Lord minces no words as to how He blesses those who honor Him and curses those who despise Him.  The opening chapters of Proverbs spell out for us the ways God does this.  They also prompt the question: Why would any not follow the ways of the Lord?  The answer is that those who…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 9-1-21: FDA’s Pfizer Fraud

As sometimes happens, I had another topic planned for this week’s Prophecy Update, but an issue of greater importance has taken precedence.  As many of you know, the FDA has purportedly given its approval to the Pfizer so-called vaccine.  This is a fraud and a sham which will mislead many, so I wanted to speak…

1 Corinthians 11:32 – Condemned Along With the World

The taking of Communion is a serious matter.  Partaking of it in the right manner may impact our very health and longevity; the context that Paul outlines implies that it may also have implications in how Jesus judges the world in the Tribulation. When Paul learned how the Corinthians were coming together for the Lord’s…

Psalm 147:11 – Those Who Fear Him

Do you want to know one of the reasons the church in America is so weak?  I believe it relates directly to how believers view God in their relationship with Him.  Over the years the Bible has been attacked on all sides.  It has been questioned as to how reliable it is.  Did so and…

1 Corinthians 10:20 – They Offer to Demons

Too many people think they can live a so-called Christian life with one foot in God’s camp and one foot in the camp of demons.  Whether from ignorance or hubris, the church has been largely compromised over the years.  This has resulted in a Christian faith that accepts non-Biblical practices as though they come from…

1 Corinthians 10:6 – Examples

Paul wanted the church in Corinth to understand the mercy of God and His grace, but to certainly not take it for granted.  Although he was writing primarily to a Gentile church, Paul described those whom God delivered from exile in Egypt – the Jewish people – as their fathers.  He did this because the…
