Job’s Captivity

Who held Job captive? In literal translations of Job 42:10 (Young’s, KJV), the Lord “turned Job’s captivity.” It seems to have been a common figurative phrase, though, that implied the return of lost fortunes or restoration of property, so translations that aren’t as literal usually translate the phrase that way – “the LORD restored his […]

Agree With Yahweh

Some things can’t be fixed. Even in those situations, Yahweh has a plan that includes a list of “next steps.” Agreeing with Him regarding the validity of those steps is your best option for doing well in your life.

YOUR ENEMIES

Weakening Nations

In Isaiah 14:12, Lucifer was accused of weakening the nations. The United States of America has, by Abraham Lincoln’s description, a government of, by, and for “the people.” (Gettysburg Address, 1863) A nation that is its own authority is one of the kingdoms of this world. Jesus prophesied in Matthew 24 and 25 several things […]

MAP AND COMPASS

A dictionary is a map. It charts where we have been to get to the place where we are. It doesn’t suggest how to use a word, but instead documents how a word is commonly being used. The Bible is a Map. It is a record of how far we have seen in various directions. […]
