2 Chronicles 29:5 – Filth in the Holy Place

The reforms that King Hezekiah instituted brought the favor of the Lord upon him and the people he ruled over.  It always astounds me that in the Southern Kingdom of Judah, kings like Hezekiah arose when their fathers were ungodly and corrupt.  That was the case with Hezekiah, whose father was Ahaz, described in 2…

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 9:56-57 – Lethal Curses

Throughout the Old Testament, we see various curses being pronounced; some are by men, some by God.  What we also typically see is a fulfillment of those curses.  So, are curses real, and something we should be concerned about today? The account of Gideon with his victory over the Midianites ends poorly.  God raised up…

Judges 3:1-2 – To Test Israel

Now these are the nations that the Lord left, to test Israel by them, that is, all in Israel who had not experienced all the wars in Canaan. It was only in order that the generations of the people of Israel might know war, to teach war to those who had not known it before….

Joshua 24:15 – Choosing Poorly

Both Moses and Joshua – righteous leaders of Israel – knew the dangers that would come upon God’s children if they reverted to their old ways of following other gods.  They warned the people with Yahweh’s very Words numerous times, yet they were quite aware how deceitful the hearts of men were and their inclination…

Mark 4:26-29 – How Grows the Kingdom?

Many have attempted over the years to thwart the growth of God’s Kingdom.  Incited by Satan and his minions, men have done all in their power to keep the Gospel from going forth and “infecting” others.  The topic reminds me of numerous examples where – on the surface – it appears as though the God…

Leviticus 20:26 – Holy To the Lord

One of the commands that God has consistently given to His people, whether Israelites or Christ-followers, is for us to remain apart from those who are unbelievers.  This command is captured in Leviticus 20:26 where Yahweh instructs: “You shall be holy to me, for I the Lord am holy and have separated you from the…

The Q Quandary – Part 2

In Part 1 of The Q Quandary, I described how Christians can be deceived in following Q without exercising wisdom and discernment.  The reason for this is because the outcome that Q espouses is exactly the same as what the New Age / New Gnostic community believes will happen.  Their expectation is that once Q…

Persecution in America

Persecution in America is nothing like in other parts of the world.  If you are at all aware, you know that in the Middle East, i.e. Islamic nations; in China, a Communist/atheist nation; in Hindu; Buddhist; and pagan nations, persecution is so much worse than anything we know.  In these places, Christian believers are beaten,…
