1 Corinthians 7:29 – The Appointed Time Has Grown Very Short

Because of the pagan lifestyle from which the church in Corinth emerged, Paul had much to teach them about living in holiness and righteousness.  They had immorality among them that they apparently didn’t recognize as such.  There were issues among some of the women in church exhibiting improper conduct by speaking out of turn.  What…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-25-21: Red Alert!

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-25-21: Red Alert! America Will Soon Strike (us) Hard to imagine we’re only half a year into the Biden Regime.  If you’re at all awake, you know it’s been bad.  Here’s the thing: it’s going to get worse.  Remember being happy that 2020 finally ended?  You probably didn’t hear people like…

1 Corinthians 7:23 – Do Not Become Slaves of Men

An interesting dynamic has taken hold in the world that echoes ancient times.  It revolves around who is the master and who is the servant.  God is the grand creator; all beings have come forth from His creative Word.  As such, He alone is the master of all.  However, since the very beginning, those who…

1 Corinthians 5:13 – One Who Bears the Name of Brother

How shocked Paul was when he heard what was happening in his beloved church at Corinth!  He knew they were born again, but what in the world were they thinking?  How could they possibly countenance certain activities going on in their midst?  Paul minced no words.  They must deal with the sin in their congregation…

Psalm 119:104 – I Get Understanding

Psalm 119 is like the meditation of a faithful man who relates how he remains steadfast in the Lord.  In the psalm he describes his encounters with those who hate him, and the response that he gives and lives.  Because it’s a writing of the Old Testament, i.e. of the Old Covenant, we can miss…

1 Corinthians 2:8 – Rulers of This Age

Those who oppose God inevitably believe they are smarter than Him.  They devise plans that oppose His will and think that He doesn’t see and know them.  This is part of their foolishness.  If the Lord knows how many hairs each of us has on our heads (Luke 12:7), then might He not also know…

1 Corinthians 1:20 – The Wisdom of the World

It is the wisdom of the world that has brought us to the precipice of the Rapture of the church and the subsequent Tribulation.  Man in his wisdom believes that he can run things better than God.  When the Lord is questioned: “Hath God said?” by the serpent (Genesis 3:1), it is this fallacy that…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 8-18-21: Last Trumpet or Pre-Trib Rapture?

It’s been a while since I did a straight-up teaching on the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Because of the varying views on the Rapture as to its timing, whenever I comment on the truth that the Rapture must occur prior to the 7-year Tribulation, I inevitably get messages wherever the video is posted by those who think…

Romans 13:1 – Governing Authorities

The subject of discussion in this commentary is a minefield.  I’m well aware that pastors and theologians have differing views and ways of understanding what Paul says in Romans 13:1-2: Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by…

Romans 12:21 – Overcome Evil With Good

One of the most difficult commands we as Christians are given in Scripture comes from Romans 12:19.  It says: Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” Who among us in the course of our lives hasn’t wanted…
