Standing in the Storm

God’s people would be bolder and braver if their leaders were not afraid to speak about controversial subjects. Fear of losing license because of being leaders in difficult situations and having unpopular views keeps some leaders from leading people to God’s promises. In chapter 38 of Jeremiah’s record, he prophesied that Jerusalem would be taken […]

Ask Jesus

On one of the very few occasions when Jesus’ disciples asked Him what He was talking about when He said something, He explained the parable of the sower (Luke 8:9-15). He will explain things to you as you ask in faith, too. The soils in the parable were: trodden hard from much traffic; rocky; among […]

Hunger and Humility

Two things Yahweh rewards happily are the conditions of hunger and humility. Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness will be filled. The son who wanted his inheritance early and wasted it hungered for the meals and liberties of his home and therefore returned to his father. Yahweh gave Israel bread from Heaven for their […]

Looking Foolish

Paul was trained in the art of enforcing the law. He was trained in the art of rhetoric – of arguing. He considered himself to be charged with a two-pronged advance assignment in the earth: instruct Israelis about the appearance of their King, and then to instruct Gentiles on the same subject. He was to […]

The Kingdom In Heaven 2

Angels and other beings from Heaven have been the victims of much imaginative misrepresentation by humans. From impish babies with wings, to Cupid, to fairies, we have painted and sculpted them in ways that make them fit our stories since we don’t have too many stories or details about them from God’s stories. If the […]

The Kingdom In Heaven

Peter was preaching to a crowd that had gathered when he and John healed the lame man at the Beautiful Gate when he told them that Jesus would be in Heaven until “the restitution of all things.’ (Acts 3:21 KJV). Revival is a word that means “bring back to life.” Restitution means something was paid […]

A View Of His Kingdom

You can’t see His Kingdom if you have not been born of Him (John 3:3). Once your eyes have been transformed by His Light, you can begin to see His Kingdom in many different places and times. This is a view of it from a place of exile in which His people found themselves; a […]

Songs of Victory

After seeing their God do one more great work of delivering them and destroying their enemies, Israel changed their tune. At least for one afternoon. Then Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and said, ” I will sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalted; The horse and […]

He Said, They Said

What Yahweh said to Moses: Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Tell the sons of Israel to turn back and camp before Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; you shall camp in front of Baal-zephon, opposite it, by the sea. For Pharaoh will say of the sons of Israel, ‘They are wandering aimlessly in […]

Hard Hearts and Swarms of Problems

Our God has designed our minds to value logic and to use it to find our ways and protect ourselves and our families. We use it to imagine things and then to build them. Paul suggested to the Believers in Corinth that they needed to have their logic influenced by the experiences that were recorded […]
