Psalm 24:7 – Lift Up You Heads, O Gates!

There are many men who try their best to thwart the Lord, but all of them ultimately fail.  The Muslims are among those who believe that because of their actions, the God of the Bible – in the form of the Jewish Messiah – will be kept from fulfilling prophecy.  How foolish they are! The…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 7-7-21 Christian Awaken-Trib-Rapture?

Within the Christian community there are currently three worldview perspectives that are being put forth as to God’s intent, and what that means for mankind.

Nehemiah 9:26 – Nevertheless

It’s astounding what God puts up with concerning this rebellious creation of His called mankind. If He wasn’t long-suffering beyond what you and I can imagine, He would have decided the human experiment had long-past reached its expiration date.  Nevertheless (the word that also happens to highlight the title of this essay today), God somehow…

John 3:5 – Water and Spirit

We’re all familiar with the account of the Pharisee Nicodemus coming to Jesus at night. Jesus called him the teacher of Israel (John 3:10); as such he was an important, highly regarded man.  It’s why he came at night.  His intense curiosity about Jesus got the best of him, but he couldn’t risk anyone seeing…

1 Kings 13:34 – Fruit of Bad Counsel

Counsel may come from men and be good or bad and have its consequences; when counsel comes from God and is ignored the outcome is disastrous. When Rehoboam became king in place of his father Solomon, he immediately had a choice to make as to how he would rule.  The people of Israel came to…

1 Kings 10:5 – No Breath in Her

Imagine yourself a monarch – a king or queen – in the time of Solomon.  The queen of Sheba was such a ruler.  Because of Solomon’s fame, this queen heard about him from the distant land in which she lived.  Sheba is considered to be the modern day country of Yemen, to the far south…

Luke 20:36 – Equal to Angels

The scribes and chief priests, the Pharisees and the Sadducees, all came to Jesus with their own agendas hoping to catch Him as a false prophet and thus denounce Him.  At one point, the Sadducees tried to trip Him up with questions about the afterlife.  As opposed to the Pharisees, they didn’t believe in the…

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…
