Isaiah 22:13 – You Did Not Look To Him

In Isaiah 22, the prophet gives an oracle – a vision – for Jerusalem.  I could be wrong, but it appears to me that this is both a lament for what had already occurred and a warning of what was to come with the destruction of the daughter of my people (Isaiah 22:4).  A great…

2 Corinthians 4:18 – Things That Are Unseen

What we see happening around us in the world can be overwhelming. There are times it takes our breath away. We ask, “How could this possibly happen?” “Is anyone in charge?” “What next?” It seems that from one week to the next, things get worse. “Is there no end to this?” “Can’t we get back…

Mark 6:22 – Herodias’ Daughter

It’s one thing for someone to reject Jesus, but another thing altogether when that person causes another to sin.  Due to the choices one makes, in a sense, it’s easy to see how progressive sin brings him (or her) to a very bad place.  During the Exodus, Yahweh dealt with this downward slide of iniquity…

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 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…

Matthew 26:8 – They Were Indignant

On first reading, in suggesting the connection I propose in this commentary, you may say, “What?”  But, hear me out.  What if the original fall of the sons of God (bene Elohim) foreshadowed the indignation of the disciples when the woman anointed Jesus with oil and the subsequent action by Judas? The first rebel was…

Matthew 25:40 – As You Did

We know that from the time of Jesus, the only way to eternal life is through Him (John 3:16).  Believers who have died and risen, and those alive and translated in the Rapture, will all be justified by grace through Jesus for their works in Christ at His mercy seat (Hebrews 9:5; Romans 3:24-25).  Their…

Matthew 25:12,30 – Two More Rapture Warnings

How anyone can read the New Testament and come away not seeing the many instances where the pre-Tribulation Rapture is discussed, nor the warnings associated with it, is beyond me.  Today, I want to briefly illustrate two more instances that point to this blessed event, yet the dire outcome for those who don’t believe in…

Matthew 24:44 – The Unexpected Hour

One of the passages in Matthew 24 that has caused a differing of opinions revolves around what is headed in the ESV “No One Knows That Day and Hour.”  This section is where Jesus speaks about His return, but which return is it?  There are those in the Bible prophecy community who believe that Jesus…
