2 Chronicles 32:7 – More With Us

Today, I’d like to make two points from our reading that are, perhaps, more related than they appear on the surface. The first has to do with King Hezekiah’s faith; the second deals with his son Manasseh and his relationship to God. Hezekiah is considered one of the most righteous kings of Judah with all…

John 12:8 – The Poor With Us

Whatever events happened around Him, Jesus always used them to teach about the kingdom of God. That which He taught His disciples then is useful for us today in one form or another. One compelling incident occurred among those in His inner circle just before His triumphal entry into Jerusalem at Passover before His crucifixion….

1 Chronicles 29:3 – Giving To the House of God

It should be patently obvious to all Christians that God wants us to give to, i.e. sow into, His kingdom. We do this through our tithes and offerings. This is not a law or a strict command, rather it’s something we should want to do from our hearts. God seeks those who freely give and…

John 10:27 – My Sheep Hear My Voice

In our day and age, we can’t relate as much to the parallels and word usage which we see in Scripture as could the people back in ancient Israel. They were an agrarian society that lived close to the land. They farmed and raised herds of animals. As such, they were intimately familiar with crops…

2 Kings 22:11 – He Tore His Clothes

When was the time you learned the Word of the Lord and tore your clothes?  It doesn’t have to be a literal tearing of your garments, rather it could be the moment of greatest brokenness or understanding in your life that caused you to turn to God and confess Jesus Christ as your Savior.  You…

Luke 3:8 – Fruits of Repentance

Without repentance, there is no salvation.  Paul in 2 Corinthians 7:10 tells us: For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death. Accompanying repentance, one who experiences this 180 degree turning, or change of mind (Greek: metanoia), should first have Godly grief.  Why?  Because this kind of…

Matthew 25:12,30 – Two More Rapture Warnings

How anyone can read the New Testament and come away not seeing the many instances where the pre-Tribulation Rapture is discussed, nor the warnings associated with it, is beyond me.  Today, I want to briefly illustrate two more instances that point to this blessed event, yet the dire outcome for those who don’t believe in…

Genesis 24:6,8 – Old Life Before Christ

There are many principles that God illustrates to us through the lives and actions of the people who populate the Old Testament.  In Genesis 24:6,8 we see one of these principles enacted through Abraham’s servant Eliezer when Abraham sent him to the place of his extended family in Ur to seek a wife for his…
