John 10:16 – One Flock One Shepherd

God didn’t have to do any of this. He had no need that He had to fill. There wasn’t any outside influence on Him. God created us simply because He wanted to. No, maybe I’m wrong. Perhaps He did have a need. That need was to lavish the love bursting in His heart upon someone….

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…

Judges 6:31 – Contending for Baal

Why is it that those who follow other gods feel they have to protect their god; that he cannot do the work of protecting himself?  I’m thinking specifically of Islam right now with the followers of Allah, but this certainly applies to every other god.  All of them apparently need their followers to act in…

Deuteronomy 32:17 – Gods They Had Never Known

Have I said this before?  I’m sure I have.  Context when reading the Bible is everything.  Consider The Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32.  Yahweh instructed Moses to recite the words of this song to all Israel (Deuteronomy 31:30).  They were Words of warning to God’s children because He knew their hearts and how unfaithful…

Genesis 11 – Babel

The typical Christian thinking is that sin is the only problem in the world that Jesus came to overcome.  In fact, the ancient Jewish concept of what’s wrong provides a much bigger picture, and it actually paves the way for all that Jesus has done and will do prophetically so as to redeem the earth….

Gathered & Scattered

The idea of people being scattered and gathered is prominent in the Bible for better and for worse, although God has seemingly preferred scattering because of man’s rebellious spirit.  This isn’t intended to be an exhaustive study, but the contrasts provide a different view of the story of mankind and the church. The first two…

Replacement Theology in the Deuteronomy 32 Worldview

When we approach the Bible with what is known as the Deuteronomy 32 worldview, we understand why Replacement Theology is so prevalent today.  Replacement Theology takes the Biblically false view that Israel no longer has a place in God’s plans and purposes because 1) Israel blew it, and 2) the Church has taken her place….

New Age Spirituality & the Sons of God

The New Age movement, i.e. the New Spirituality, isn’t really so new.  Its roots go back to antiquity.  They weave throughout the Bible.  And they manifest in various world religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism.  These roots are fascinating and deadly. In order to see the nature of these roots, we have to look at…
