Matthew 28:19–Addressing Doubts

Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost ~Jesus (Matthew 28:19) I've noticed that a growing number of Christians are starting to believe and teach some very bad misinformation about Matthew 28:19.  Some well-meaning people claim that Jesus never … Continue reading Matthew 28:19–Addressing Doubts

He Walked On Water

I have a goal this year of reading through the entire New Testament in the original Greek.  I am beginning to realize that this is quite an ambitious goal, but the rewards are well worth the effort.  As I was reading from the Gospel of John a few days ago, something I already knew about … Continue reading He Walked On Water

The Stranger’s Grave

Genesis 23 starts off with a small story, almost incidental, that never caught my attention until a few days ago.  Abraham's wife Sarah, the "mother of nations" (Genesis 17:16)  who conceived Abraham's miracle child Isaac, died at 127 years old.  Doubtless this was heartbreaking for Abraham--he had followed the Lord for years now with this … Continue reading The Stranger’s Grave

Roots By The River

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the … Continue reading Roots By The River

Feeling Our Infirmities

I was reading the book of Hebrews the other day, and the Lord began to comfort me with a couple passages from the book of Hebrews.  It is easy to get frustrated with certain factors in our lives: we're human.  We are flesh and blood, and we have limitations and temptations that often beset us. … Continue reading Feeling Our Infirmities

Eclipse Timing

The "Great American Eclipse" came and went on August 21st.  My family hosted company from out of town to come up and see the total eclipse with us, and it was a magnificent time.  The sight was spectacular, breathtakingly beautiful.  I was even able to get a few photos of the eclipse during totality. From … Continue reading Eclipse Timing

Dark Oregon

About a week ago I published A Day of Darkened Sun, a blog post introducing people to the eclipse that is crossing America this Monday (August 21st) and to some of the providential aspects surrounding the eclipse.  With the eclipse upon us in just a couple days, I wanted to share a particular point about … Continue reading Dark Oregon

A Day of Darkened Sun

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will be visible across the United States.  This event has received a lot of media buzz as of late because of just how rare a full solar eclipse is.  A full solar eclipse hasn't been visible from the continental US in 38 years.  It is being called … Continue reading A Day of Darkened Sun

A Prophetic People

When people think of prophets and prophecy, they normally think of an elect group of people with supernatural insight and power.  These are not your average preachers!  They have an extraordinary zeal to reach the lost; they dream dreams or have trances from God; they speak riddles or predict the future.  Even those of us … Continue reading A Prophetic People

Third Day Miracles

The gospel of John tells us the first miracle that our Lord performed. While he and his disciples were at a wedding in Cana, the wedding party ran out of wine (2:1-3).  To meet the need, Jesus commanded the servants to fill six stone water pots, typically used for ritual washing, with water and then … Continue reading Third Day Miracles
