On Eagles’ Wings

Our God is a supernatural God.  We see that throughout the Bible in the many miracles, signs, and wonders that He performs.  In the Book of Exodus, He brings about ten terrible plagues upon Pharaoh and the nation of Egypt in the earth, the heavens, and upon man.  No doubt, he can do anything, even…

Counterfeit Redemption

When I was saved and born again in 2005, my pastor impressed on me the importance of reading the Bible daily.  He held a Bible up over my head and said that everything in our lives must come under the Word of God.  Being brand new in the Lord and having no idea what real…

The Twitter Swamp

Most of you are familiar with the social media platform Twitter.  You may also be aware that many people communicate extremely vile things on it.  It seems that no one stops to think.  Is what I’m saying uplifting in any sense of the word?  It appears that the majority of people don’t care.  They just…

Corrupting Influence of Sin

Today, I’ll start with an analogy.  It’s rather gross, but at the same time, I think, quite effective. Consider a brand-new toilet bowl.  It’s clean, white, no hint of anything that might mar its pristine surface.  It gets installed in your home and it isn’t long before it’s not quite so pretty. A little bit…

Parable of the Unmerciful Servant

Reading in Matthew 18 about the parable of the unmerciful servant made me reflect back to verses I discussed in a previous blog post.  In Romans 2:4-5, the Apostle Paul says: Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you…

Why Bible Prophecy

It seems as though Bible prophecy has a bad name these days.  When believers in the Pre-Tribulation Rapture espouse this position, there are numerous “Christians” who ridicule the notion that Jesus will come back for His church in a timely manner.  Why is this such a strange and unpopular notion? If these scoffers were to…

Prophecy Revealed & Blessed

I mentioned in my initial blog post that prophecy comprises a significant portion of the Bible.  God’s servants, the prophets, wrote up to one-third of Bible text that involves future events described from a prophetic perspective.  Just from that alone, it should be evident that prophecy is important to God. However, God doesn’t stop there,…

Blog Introduction

The name of this blog is taken from Luke 21:28 where Jesus says: “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” I have no doubt this blog will be quite different from the majority of blogs that many might read.  I’m a pastor as…
