Supernatural surprise!

Adam witnessed his Father supernaturally create Eve.  But over time, that power of our Father to intervene was questioned.  And men discounted God.  The result was that the whole world then witnessed our Father’s supernatural ability to intervene as the aquifers gave up their water and the rain came and the entire planet was covered in water. But again over time the significance of the Father faded.  So He again intervened for all to see by supernaturally confounding language. But over time His power and majesty faded again such that… Read more Supernatural surprise!

Weekend Warrior

noun One who enthusiastically engages in an activity or hobby on the weekends outside of regular employment. A part-time soldier, or reservist. A person who indulges in a sport or pastime on an infrequent basis, usually on weekends when work commitments are not present. I had the good fortune to be raised in a town that housed a major military base.  Some of the top people in the military spent 3 years in my town.  Some went on to the pentagon.  Some were veterans of the first gulf war.  Some liked the town so much that… Read more Weekend Warrior

Focus on Jesus

Twice our Father singles out three outstanding men of the Old Testament: Eze 14:14 even though these three men, Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, by their own righteousness they could only deliver themselves,” declares the Lord GOD. Eze 14:20 even though Noah, Daniel and Job were in its midst, as I live,” declares the Lord GOD, “they could not deliver either their son or their daughter. They would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.” Three exceptional men.  Men that I could never begin to approach in their righteousness.  I thank God that my story has not been written for all to read as was theirs.  I note that God gave us a glimpse of the humanity of two of the men.  Noah had an unfortunate situation… Read more Focus on Jesus

Money Changers

Jhn 2:15 And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables; Mat 21:12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves. Twice Jesus drove the money changers out of the temple.  They weren’t accurately representing His Father.  They were capitalizing on the ignorance of the attenders.  They were opportunists … not servants. Sound familiar? Soon, Jesus will once again deal harshly with the money changers.  But this time it… Read more Money Changers

Inconceivable!

Used early and often in the movie Princess Bride.  Correctly challenged by Indigo.  “I do not think that word means what you think it means”.  Indeed! The same type of mistakes are made in our modern “Christian lingo”.  One example is the word “death” or “died” as in Jesus died in our place.  We think physically died on the cross. Here’s some logic to consider.  That we will all live eternally is agreed.  Hopefully, not an eternal life in Hell. Today, we ask the incorrect question of how to be… Read more Inconceivable!

Doctor … know it all?

I’m saddened by our Christian society’s propensity to refer to certain Christian high profile men as “doctor” so and so?  I wish we would come to our senses? I think of Paul who had by far and away the best training in the scriptures that one could get.  He was advancing beyond his peers.  Yet he refers to himself as the “least” of the Apostles and “foremost” among sinners.  That seems appropriate to me. When we place man made status on each other, we unfortunately reinforce a portion of our… Read more Doctor … know it all?
