Inevitable Tragedy of Evil Rulers

The evil of so many kings of Israel/Judah tends to shock us because this was the nation that God created, revealed Himself to, and gave His Law to so that they would be a light to the world. We wonder how after experiencing so many blessings and miracles came to a point of rejecting God? It is the same reason people do so today; it is due to our sin and our unwillingness to live in fear of the Lord that would cause us to live godly lives, which is seen in obedience to Him. This puts us at odds with God. Even as Christians, if we are not careful to nurture our relationship with God, we will fail.

Ahab’s Evil Politics

But in spite of all the terribly godless things Ahab did during his 20-year reign, probably the thing that most disturbs me is Ahab’s tacit approval of the murder of Naboth (1 Kings 21), to take Naboth’s vineyard/land. Here was a godly man of Israel simply trying to live in obedience to God because he obviously feared God, which enabled him to stand up to the king. How else could he have stood up to Ahab? Obeying God was far more important to Naboth.

Fear God and Live

The subject is fearing the Lord, something that I believe too many Christians (including me), fail at miserably. It happens because we do not focus on our obligation to fear Him because we are often too focused on His mercy, love, and grace. While those things are clearly important, without balancing things out with a healthy profound reverential awe and respect for Him, we become one-sided and truly off balance.

Are We There?

Over the past week or so, I’ve pretty much stopped going to social networks. It’s always the same repeatedly. I’d rather ignore what’s there and just concentrate on what God is doing. If I am learning to fear Him, then I must be willing to let go of those things of this world that keep me bound to frustration, worry and concern.

I honestly believe that as we separate from the Babylon system, we will be honoring Him and what we do in secret will be rewarded openly and that includes a greater awareness of Him and His work in and through us.

Will you join me in praying for each other that we will learn to offer Him our sacrifice of fear that leads to obedience?

Discerning the Times: Heretics, Racism and New Numbers for Holocaust?

Our anti-Christian society wants us all to conform. They want churches to play by their rules. They don’t like it when some pastors try to buck the world’s system and government officials then decide to come down on them for their unwillingness to tow the line. But in fact, Christians have a much higher calling and it is now past time for us to realize and understand this. If we say we are Christians, shouldn’t we understand and live in a way that prompts us to follow Jesus regardless of the cost?

Grow in your godly fear Him this week!

Failure to Fear the Lord

Job had heard God and had absolutely no answer to God’s queries. None. Job was left realizing how utterly vile he was and had no ground to ask or demand from God any answer to any question. This was Job’s start of true wisdom because he had finally come to a point of understanding what it meant to truly fear God.

False Teachers and Prophets, Part 9

There are way too many false teachers today; both men and women. While some are calling them out, too often, those voices are being ignored or silenced. This should not be. Reading through 1 and 2 Samuel proves that any nation who ignores God’s rule is destined for destruction, often coming from within. God seems to turn nations over to their own desires (Romans 1), and allows them to fail and fall all because they chose to ignore God and try to play by their own rules.

He is Risen!

Happy Resurrection Sunday to everyone! In spite of the evil in the world, in spite of the growing darkness, Jesus is alive!

On the third day following His voluntary death, Jesus rose from the grave because death could not keep Him.

Jesus, GodMan was born of a virgin, lived a perfectly sinless life, died for our sin, and rose again.

The soul-endangering problem of direct revelation: Exhibit A- Joanna Gaines

Great article about the insidious nature of Satan’s schemes to pull us away from God’s Word listening instead to some ethereal “voice.”

The End Time

By Elizabeth Prata

Oprah has made a big splash with her interview of media and real estate moguls Chip and Joanna Gaines.

Source: Christian Post

A few days ago, I’d posted an essay discussing the issue of women who claim to hear direct personalized revelations from God and what a danger that is. The essay was called “Satan whispers, women start a movement.

For example, stay at home mom Jennie Allen founded the IF:Gathering movement because in her words, “A voice from the sky” told her directly “to gather an equip this generation.” She was assured by a friend that if the voice was from God He would definitely give her all that she needs to accomplish it. Satan can do that, too, a notion that apparently had not occurred to them.

I’d also mentioned Joanna Gaines as negative examples of career-ambitious women who claim to hear from…

As Babylon Takes Shape…

At the Tower of Babel, God did not directly interact with Satan at all or his protégé Nimrod. God instead simply “went down” among the people and confused their languages by introducing many languages at that point. People divided along language differences and finally did what God had long before instructed Noah; to replenish the earth. Up to that point, everyone lived in the area of Shinar where the temple to the people’s gods was being constructed as symbol of defiance and disobedience to God. It is the same spirit that is currently shaping the modern day system of Babylon.
