Isaiah 40:18 – To Whom Will You Liken God?

A full page ad in our complimentary copy of The Epoch Times caught my eye.  The top half displayed the name Shen Yun and a beautiful Chinese dancer in mid-leap.  The text below the fold said: “China Before Communism.”  It went on to mysteriously say: China was once called “Land of the Divine.”  There was…

Proverbs 7:27 – The Way to Sheol

Proverbs 7-8 provides the contrast between one who is faithful and one who is not.  These chapters speak of the adulteress and the woman called Wisdom.  The adulteress is always scheming how to gain illicit love; Wisdom demonstrates the benefits of seeking righteousness.  When the master of the adulteress’ house leaves, she diligently prepares for…

Proverbs 3:7 – Wise In Your Own Eyes

How the world loves its self-wisdom!  We look at Proverbs and all the cautions that God provides to keep us from going our own way, and what does man do?  He goes his own way.  In so many passages of the Bible, the Lord shows His care and concern for His creation by admonishing people…

Psalm 147:11 – Those Who Fear Him

Do you want to know one of the reasons the church in America is so weak?  I believe it relates directly to how believers view God in their relationship with Him.  Over the years the Bible has been attacked on all sides.  It has been questioned as to how reliable it is.  Did so and…

1 Corinthians 6:9 – Do Not Be Deceived

Deception is the order of the day.  Everywhere we look, people are being deceived.  It results in fraud, i.e. people being cheated.  Yet they glory in it, making their own lives a shambles and the lives of others miserable.  What is it that brings forth such a condition? First and foremost is the rejection of…

Psalm 109:4 – I Give Myself To Prayer

Most of us have had people in our lives who have irritated us or been prickly thorns; some may have had true, vicious enemies, but probably not many.  Living in America, we’ve had great ease and comfort.  Conflicts and wars haven’t touched our nation within its borders for many years – from long before all…

Romans 15:4 – Written For Our Instruction

God gives us His Word – the entire Word – for a reason.  There may be parts of Scripture where we wonder what it’s doing in there or how it applies to us, but for someone, somehow, it does pertain, so it’s all useful.  Paul’s letter to the Romans variously addressed both the Jewish believers…

Psalm 103:3 – Heals All Your Diseases

The days of COVID, now a year and a half and going strong (as I write this), have exposed many evils.  Probably the greatest of these is the number of people who have little regard for our nation as founded and wish to destroy it.  Government officials and their wicked agenda as globalists have been…

Psalm 94:13 – Until A Pit Is Dug

One of the many truths the psalms teach us is the glory and majesty of the Lord.   They exalt Him above every other god and show us that only through Him do we have any hope.  We learn that other spiritual beings have pretensions of replacing God, and that through their demonic influence, man…
