The Best Kind of Fear

We live in perilous, yet exciting times. We witness tragedy every day in the Middle East and other parts of the world. We read our Bibles and can witness God’s prophecy revealed in the very headlines we’re reading or watching. While we might have a tendency to be afraid, I’d like to point us to […] Continue reading…

The Assurance of Bible Prophecy

In my last post, God’s Ten Most Wanted, I wrote about the certainty and accuracy of biblical prophecy. God tells us what’s going to happen before it happens! To develop this point further we only need to look at two Scriptures. First is Isaiah 46:9–10. It says, “Remember the former things of old, 
For I […] Continue reading…

Victory Over Giants: Pretender or Warrior?

When we read the story of David and Goliath (1 Samuel 17) there is a tremendous contrast between the army of Israel and David the shepherd boy. The army is in battle array and they look fully equipped and ready to fight. Yet, at the same time, they are dismayed by the giant—they have a […] Continue reading…

Victory Over Giants: The Sword of God’s Word

1 Samuel 17 contains one of the best-known and most beloved stores in the whole Bible—the story of young David’s defeat of the Philistine giant Goliath. When we read or hear this story we often don’t go deep enough. We’re excited by it and we approach it as a childlike fairytale, instead of identifying with […] Continue reading…

He Lives

 This coming Sunday is Resurrection Sunday. While many people refer to this day as Easter I prefer to call it by this name because even though Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, He lives. And, that is the message of this coming Sunday and every Resurrection Sunday. The reason we celebrate is because of […] Continue reading…

Our Heavenly Citizenship

 C. S. Lewis wrote, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”[1] Quite simply, we not only long to be in heaven, we were made for it. That was God’s original intent and design. This fallen […] Continue reading…

Understanding God’s Nature

God is speaking in Isaiah 57:15, “For thus says the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” He’s […] Continue reading…

Giving Thanks: A Healed Man and a Whole Man

 Luke 17:11–19 is the story of ten lepers who lived in a remote village between Jerusalem and Galilee. In those times leprosy was a dreaded disease (see Leviticus 13 and 14 for an explanation of the horrific plight of those who had leprosy). People were exiled, they lived alone, they were cut off from the […] Continue reading…

Contrasting Ways of Responding to God’s Presence

 My last post highlighted king David and bringing the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem. To the Israelites and David, the Ark clearly signified God’s presence in their midst. This post examines two contrasting ways of responding to God’s presence from 2 Samuel 6. As the Ark comes into the city, on its way […] Continue reading…

Receiving THIS to Proclaim the THAT

 In my last post I wrote about a statement in Acts 2:16. Dr. Luke pointing to the Holy Spirit writes, “this is that.” He’s clearly saying that the appearance of the Holy Spirit is rooted in the foundational Truth of the past as he quotes the Prophet Joel. The Holy Spirit in our lives is […] Continue reading…
