Deuteronomy 9:3 – A Consuming Fire

God created us with an ego, but that sure can get out of hand!  The Oxford English dictionary says about ego that it’s “a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance.”  Certainly the self-esteem part of the definition is critical simply so we can function on a daily basis.  We have to feel a sense of…

Deuteronomy 7:14 – Blessed Above All Peoples

The Lord wanted to bless His children Israel.  He told them time and again all that He wanted to do for them.  When they responded positively to His giving them the Ten Commandments, listen to the yearning of Yahweh’s heart in Deuteronomy 5:29: “Oh that they had such a heart as this always, to fear…

Numbers 35:33 – Blood Pollutes the Land

Some of the final instructions to the Israelites before they crossed the Jordan River into the land of Canaan gave them important principles that we in modern times should have heeded, but did not.  They display the character and intent of God, which ultimately His people ignored, and which we likewise have disdained in the…

Numbers 33:55 – Trouble in the Land

Because of what the Israelites had learned in Egypt over their 400 years of captivity, Yahweh had a deconditioning project to accomplish with them.  They had been in the midst of a pantheon of pagan gods and gotten used to deities whose image they could see.  The verbal history of their people had probably taken…

Mark 9:2 – Satan On Notice

As is often the case in Scripture, more is going on behind the scenes in many passages we read than first meets the eye.  This is particularly true of the episode known as The Transfiguration.  The account begins in Mark 9:2 which says: And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and…

Numbers 18:5 – Wrath No More

Yahweh had separated the Levites as a unique tribe among the twelve in Israel to serve Him.  Because they had stood against the depravity that the children of Israel engaged in during the incident of the golden calf, God ordained them for service (Exodus 32:29).  The Lord made many pronouncements about what this meant and…

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…

Numbers 9:16 – Supernatural

The Bible is a book filled with wonders, all of which point to God.  Why is it that given all we’re shown He can do, that we still try to limit Him?  How is it that we can accept some supernatural aspects of God and His kingdom, yet are loathe to believe others?  What is…

Numbers 5:15 – Trial by Ordeal

Certain passages of the Bible make us shake our heads in confusion before we move on in our reading, because we don’t understand what’s going on at a deeper level.  In our westernized Christianity, we don’t have the appropriate context to discern the true intent; rather than digging deeper, we add these things to our…
