Good Friday Reflection

Today is Good Friday, the day we remember the sacrifice Jesus paid on behalf of our sin to redeem us and restore us to a right relationship with God. Many will attend Good Friday Communion services, others will attend a Messianic Passover Seder, but all of our minds will be on Jesus, our Lord, and... Continue Reading →

BE Restored

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 NKJV "Therefore say to the children of Israel: 'I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 I will take you as My people, and I will...

BE Delivered

Passover is a time of deliverance. It is an invitation to examine our hearts and lives and get the leaven (sin) out. It is also one of three appointed Feasts of the Lord. Passover is the story of the Hebrew people being delivered from bondage and the fulfillment of our redemption from sin through the... Continue Reading →

BE! ROOTED

Let there be is a phrase repeated in Genesis chapter one as God created all that the world contains. Colossians 2:6-7 tells us to be rooted in Christ, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you...

Treasuring The Torah

2 Timothy 3:16-17 TLV “All Scripture is [God-breathed]1 and useful for teaching, for reproof, for restoration, and for training in righteousness, 17 so that the person belonging to God may be capable, fully equipped for every good deed.” These are the two quintessential verses for the doctrine of the inspiration of Scripture. They are the... Continue Reading →

A Covenant Keeping God

The Bible is a book about covenants from beginning to end, and God is a covenant, God. So Paul wrote to the Galatians that through Jesus, the blessing of Abraham comes to the Gentiles, and to the Romans, he noted that Abraham is the father of us all.  To understand the new covenant fully, we...

Grace, Mercy, and Celebration

Throughout Israel’s history, we see neglect and return. Israel neglects the commands of God, repents, and returns to the ways of God. At times we catch ourselves judging Israel and thinking, how could a people who saw such great miracles so quickly turn from God? But in reality, we are no different; we often neglect...

Correction And Direction

My first flight was From DFW to London, then London to South Africa. I remember looking out the window each time we would begin flying lower as we got closer to landing. Seeing land far away and getting closer and closer is an incredible thing to see. Life is like that at times, we tend... Continue Reading →

Keeping a Journal

Growing up, I always heard Kenneth Copeland say, "one word from God can change your life." Today as I was reading my Bible, that phrase came to mind, and I began to think about it and different characters in the Bible. Moses saw a burning bush, and when he turned aside to see, the Lord...

A Heart Strangely Warmed

"I felt my heart strangely warmed…I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone, for salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death."  Those were the words of John Wesley after hearing someone read Martin Luther's preface...

The Hidden Hand of God

Tonight and tomorrow are joyous days of celebration for the Jewish people. Tonight marks the beginning of Purim, the celebration of the Jewish people being delivered from the murderous plot of the wicked Haman. Esther is a short book, and I encourage you to read it, as I will only be highlighting a few portions... Continue Reading →

Growing With The Gospel

I started reading a tome on Puritan theology at the beginning of the year. It has been an immense blessing so far, but it has also caused a lot of heartache. The Puritans focused solely on Christ and His gospel, even regarding discipleship. Over the last couple of years, I have realized just how absent... Continue Reading →

End-Times Epicenter

Growing up in church during the late nineties and early two-thousands, I was simultaneously terrified of the end-times yet fascinated by the movies produced by Cloud Ten Pictures. If you’ve never seen a great low-quality end-times film, I highly recommend it; some of my favorites are; Left Behind, Judgement, Vanished, and The Mark. Last year... Continue Reading →

The Promise

"I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel." (Genesis 3:15 ESV). "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall... Continue Reading →

Stories of Heaven And Hell

Today, I saw a headline on Instagram; Woman dies from suffering a heart attack and claims she went to Heaven and met Jesus. I thought of the man in the Bible who begged for someone to be sent to his brothers to warn them of the afterlife. Accounts of visits to Heaven and hell abound... Continue Reading →
