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 LSB "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 innermost parts I knew you, And before you came out from the womb I set you apart; I have given you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 LSB). "And it happened that when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled... 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 LSB "For as yet they did...

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...

Walking with the Spirit

When the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all in one place, and suddenly there came a sound from heaven like a mighty rushing wind, and tongues like fire sat on each of them, and they all spoke in tongues as the Spirit gave utterance. Most of us think of Acts 2:1-4 when... Continue Reading →

Walking in the Word

Have you ever started putting a shelving unit together, looked at the pictures in the instructions, said to yourself, simple enough, and then proceeded to toss the instructions aside? Then, twenty minutes later, you're looking for them because you have too many screws or that part doesn't connect to where "it's supposed to?" We wouldn't... Continue Reading →

Pressing Towards Pentecost

Surviving plagues, Lamb's blood keeping away death, seeing a sea parted and crossing on dry ground, bitter waters made sweet and being fed by miracle manna. Can it get any more memorable than this? The Hebrews had seen God do many things in a short amount of time, but now they are pressing towards their... Continue Reading →
