Psalm 20:7 – Some Trust in Horses

In psalm after psalm we see that David exhibited his faith in the Lord.  Although in his descriptions, we understand that he faced many difficulties, from enemies that pursued him to those who betrayed him.  Yet, the common theme throughout the psalms David wrote is his believing loyalty to Yahweh. Men rose up on every…

2 Chronicles 32:7 – More With Us

Today, I’d like to make two points from our reading that are, perhaps, more related than they appear on the surface. The first has to do with King Hezekiah’s faith; the second deals with his son Manasseh and his relationship to God. Hezekiah is considered one of the most righteous kings of Judah with all…

2 Kings 17:33 – Syncretism

When people try to serve both other gods and Yahweh, the God of the Bible, at the same time, they are guilty of syncretism.  Merriam-Webster dictionary defines syncretism “as the combination of different forms of belief or practice.”  In ancient Israel, this sin was a serious downfall among the people.  In fact, it’s what led…

John 5:38 – You Do Not Believe

There have always been those who did not believe in the God of all creation. They have turned from Him in their willfulness or ignorance and followed other gods. These gods are indeed real; they are spiritual beings in rebellion to their Father who created them.  In the grand scheme of things, Satan has risen…

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…
