1 Chronicles 10:13-14 – He Broke Faith

What keeps us from drawing nearer to God?  Worse, what tears us away from Him? King Saul is the poster child as the answer to these questions. The prophet Samuel hadn’t been thrilled when the people he served wanted a king.  He was near the end of his life, and his two sons weren’t Godly…

John 8:32 – Truly My Disciples

There is a difference between those who think they’re Christians, with the supposition that all is good in their spiritual walk, and those who truly belong to the Lord.  There is, of course, a spectrum of belief from the seriously devout to people who are extremely casual in their faith. On that scale are the…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-19-21: The Transhumanist Fallacy

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-19-21: The Transhumanist Fallacy Are people becoming less than human in order to theoretically become more than human? We’re going to consider some of the aspects of the very public push to achieve immortality with the intention of kicking God out of the equation for good. In so doing, we’re going…

1 Chronicles 1:39 – Genealogical Mayhem

When you come across genealogies in the Bible, do your eyes cross and you begin to nod off, wishing this portion of your daily reading would hurry up and pass? That’s a typical reaction, and one you might have in your first several times reading through the entire Bible in a year and coming across…

2 Kings 19:28 – My Hook in Your Nose

Hezekiah’s believing loyalty toward Yahweh earned him many blessings.  The Lord in 2 Kings 18:5 even went so far as to say: He trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel, so that there was none like him among all the kings of Judah after him, nor among those who were before him. High praise…

John 5:38 – You Do Not Believe

There have always been those who did not believe in the God of all creation. They have turned from Him in their willfulness or ignorance and followed other gods. These gods are indeed real; they are spiritual beings in rebellion to their Father who created them.  In the grand scheme of things, Satan has risen…

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-12-21: The Next Crisis

Awaken Bible Prophecy Update 5-12-21: Pandemic or Plague – The Next Crisis In this prophecy update we first venture into the problem that churches propagate by allowing ungodly thinking to come from the people in the pews. The main discussion centers around the possibility of another crisis – perhaps a smallpox epidemic – that the…

2 Kings 3:27 – Human Sacrifice

The demonic realm hungers for blood. We’ve all heard about satanic rituals where blood is shed or even drank, so there’s certainly enough information and proof that adherents of darkness who follow Satan and his minions perform abhorrent practices.  Have you ever wondered why, or to what end? First, it’s important to understand there are…

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 18:21 – Leaping and Limping

If someone is leaping, can he also be limping at the same time?  That’s a strange question, isn’t it? Apparently according to the writer of 1 Kings, that’s a distinct possibility. In the days of the prophet Elijah, the wicked King Ahab ruled over Israel – the Northern Kingdom.  He was so evil and far…
