Overcoming Sin

There is an interesting verse in Genesis chapter four that we have all read countless times, but today I realized God Himself gave us the key to victory over sin. Genesis 4:1-10 LSB "Now the man knew his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, and she said, "I have gotten a... Continue Reading →

The Beauty of the Cross

How can something so vile as a cross used to murder millions be considered beautiful? Because at a set time in history, the selfless Son of God freely gave His life on that instrument to redeem mankind. John 19:17-20 LSB "They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place... Continue Reading →

Av: Overcoming Unbelief

Av is the fifth month on the Hebrew calendar. We've all heard that five is a grace number, and Av is a month when we need grace, a grace that overcomes. The ninth of Av (Saturday, August 6, 2022) is a day of mourning and fasting because it is on that day the First and... Continue Reading →

Come Back, Church

For the last few days, my social media has been overrun with the little miss character. After a few weeks of enduring this little craze, it will likely be on to the next thing. The next pointless, no one will remember thing. Social media is a good tool for staying connected, but it also exposes... Continue Reading →

Mantles And Majesty

In First Kings, chapter eighteen, we read the story of Elijah confronting Ahab and triumphing over the prophets of Baal. After such a great victory, Elijah flees from the evil Jezebel for his life.  The story continues in 1 Kings 19:4-21 TLV “But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and...

Why The TLV?

I have loved the Bible since I was a kid. I guess you could say I’m a collector, with a modest count of fifty-four Bibles (at the writing of this post). I enjoy reading all translations and have always bounced back and forth with "my main translation.” In 2022, my goal was to read through... Continue Reading →

My Responsibility Before God

Social media can be a blessing and a distraction in life. We all know this to be true. So I won't be talking about our social media usage but how Bible teachers, pastors, and other ministers rightly use social media and how they can be snared by it. As a Bible teacher and blogger, I...

Between The Straits

Tonight at sundown (July 16, 2022) till August 6, 2022, marks a period on the Hebrew calendar known as being between the straits. It is a time of mourning the loss of the First and Second Temple. The ninth of Av is a day of remembrance for the Temples as well as other tragic events... Continue Reading →

Growing in the Lord

A few days ago, my Facebook memories from three and four years ago had quotes from Pastor Rod Parsley of World Harvest Church in Columbus, Ohio, and the host of Breakthrough Television. Pastor Rod, or PRP as he is often tagged, is who God used to begin my journey with the Lord. This was one... Continue Reading →

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the LordHe is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are storedHe has loosed the fateful lightening of His terrible swift swordHis truth is marching onI have seen him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling campsThey have builded him an altar in...

Tammuz: Guard Your Heart and Worship

The Summer months on God’s calendar have begun. Tammuz, Av, and Elul have no major holidays, but God always has something to show us each month. For example, Tammuz is the month Israel built the golden calf in the wilderness (Exodus 32) and is also the month ten of the twelve spies brought back a... Continue Reading →

O Happy Day!

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." (Jeremiah 1:5 NASB95). "And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. (Luke 1:41... Continue Reading →

Relational Theology

Have you ever heard someone say that most of their friends are really just acquaintances? Unfortunately, we tend to be loose with the definition of friend these days. The Bible says that Abraham was a friend of God. The father of our faith is the first person in Scripture called a prophet; more importantly, he... Continue Reading →

Resurrection Passages

 A few things caught my attention while reading the resurrection passages in ‘A Harmony of the Gospels in 30 Days’ on YouVersion. Reading all the Gospel accounts together by story sheds new light on the life and ministry of Jesus. For instance, look at how revelation comes; John 20:9 TLV “For they did not yet...

Sanctification in the Shaking

We heard and saw rumblings among some Wesleyan groups toward more liberal theology in the twenty-teens. In 2020 failed prophecies shook the charismatic movement. In 2021, the reformed camp stood in disbelief as modern heroes began embracing woke ideology and began to nuance the abortion position. Having not yet fully recovered from Resolution 9, Southern...
