Two Witnesses

Last year my BSGs did a study on Revelation.  It was a challenging deep dive into one of the most mysterious books of the Bible.  Any Hollywood script writer or New York Times bestselling author would probably consider the story told in Revelation to be a pinnacle piece.  It weaves its way through the story of the complacencyContinue reading “Two Witnesses”

After Eden

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 During December of 2020 many people kept announcing that “next year will definitely be better.”  I could understand the longing, the hope and desire.  Let’s face it, 2020 was rife with fear, loss, despair, and worry.  I told peopleContinue reading “After Eden”

Peace

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you. 2 Thessalonians 3:16 For many years I was in search mode with my faith.  I kept searching for something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.  At first, I thought it was toContinue reading “Peace”

Our Brother’s Keeper

Life Lesson #14: Your gift of salvation is not a private affair.  We are to be our brother’s keeper. Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire;  to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. Jude 1:22-23 When I first started going to church, IContinue reading “Our Brother’s Keeper”

Identifying The Enemy

Lesson #13: To win a battle you first need to identify your adversary. For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. Jude 1:4 AboutContinue reading “Identifying The Enemy”

Tiny Yet Mighty

Throughout the Bible we are taught how the least becomes the most, the youngest becomes the greatest, and the weak become strong.  In my journey of studying the Bible I’ve flipped past seemingly insignificant books as I searched through the powerful messages of the Gospels and the insightful letters to the Corinthians and Ephesians.  And we allContinue reading “Tiny Yet Mighty”
