1 Kings 18:21 – Leaping and Limping

If someone is leaping, can he also be limping at the same time?  That’s a strange question, isn’t it? Apparently according to the writer of 1 Kings, that’s a distinct possibility. In the days of the prophet Elijah, the wicked King Ahab ruled over Israel – the Northern Kingdom.  He was so evil and far…

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…

Luke 14:28 – Counting the Cost

It’s an astounding fact that western Christianity has largely made itself no Christianity at all.  How is it that we’ve come from the early church, in which the apostles and the followers of Jesus were severely persecuted, to a place where following Jesus is made to be like having a boy- or girlfriend? In those…

Judges 18:19 – “Keep Quiet”

What is it about so many of the priests and Levites we meet in the book of Judges?  Each one seems to be worse than the next.  Weren’t they supposed to be set apart by God for service to Him because they stood athwart the sin and evil they saw during the incident of the…

Judges 6:31 – Contending for Baal

Why is it that those who follow other gods feel they have to protect their god; that he cannot do the work of protecting himself?  I’m thinking specifically of Islam right now with the followers of Allah, but this certainly applies to every other god.  All of them apparently need their followers to act in…

Deuteronomy 32:17 – Gods They Had Never Known

Have I said this before?  I’m sure I have.  Context when reading the Bible is everything.  Consider The Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32.  Yahweh instructed Moses to recite the words of this song to all Israel (Deuteronomy 31:30).  They were Words of warning to God’s children because He knew their hearts and how unfaithful…
