Fish Need to Be Hungry to Bite

Is it any wonder that Jesus turned the disciples into apostles who literally fished for people? Any good fishermen will tell you that there is only so much that he/she can do to actually catch fish with a rod and reel. The hook should be baited with something that those particular fish like and needs to be covered so that no part of the hook is visible to the fish. The other thing the fisherman needs to do is try to be as quiet as possible because water tends to increase the sound waves, scaring away the fish.

God’s Sovereignty Through the Ages, Part 2

Is this how things actually work, with God Almighty squared off against the powers of evil in the form of Satan? Are they “equal” opponents? Clearly, if we are to believe God’s Word, the answer is a resounding “NO!” God is supreme by an infinite amount! God is and remains always sovereign even when humans fail. God has absolute and final control over all situations that in any way impact His plans and purposes. God is fully sovereign, meaning that His plans and purposes always prevail. This is in spite of Satan and his angels and fallen humanity.

Social Network Politics Are Too Much

Discussing politics on any social network is counter-productive. I realized even after this upcoming election is over, the political arguments, articles, and character assassinations will not stop. The political fallout will continue on every social networks. If you’re a person that can easily ignore that stuff, more power to you. I can’t, so the best solution for me was to leave.

Deuteronomy: Application of the Law

The idea to love God was foreign to the Israelites’ way of life and understanding. It is something that needed to be developed within them. Why did Moses urge the Israelites to love God? Simply because love – true love – creates a desire to please the object of that love, from the heart. Without love, things done for another are done mainly out of fear or duty. Moses wanted the Israelites to go well beyond this where God was concerned. He wanted them to love God so that their actions and words toward Him would flow from a heart overflowing with appreciation and awe.

God’s Sovereignty Through the Ages, Part 1

There is nothing humanity can do to diminish or offset God’s sovereignty and we’d best come to terms with that as quickly as we can. In this series, we are going to rely heavily upon the Bible to tell us what we need to know about God and His sovereignty – two things which are inseparable because they go hand in hand. It is important for our own spiritual health that we attack this issue head on because it will help us understand our tendency to think too highly of ourselves individually and humanity overall.

Apparently, Jesus Was Supposed to Return October 17, 2016

Apparently, Dewey Bruton is an individual who has become rather well-known in the end times arena. Who knew? He has a very specific articulated timeline for Daniel as it relates to the end times. I completely disagree with it as do many others, but that doesn’t really matter because Bruton has a large following of people who latch onto every word he has taught. Here’s just one example of the reception Bruton’s teachings have received.

Saudi Arabia Uncovered

In schools in Saudi Arabia right now, young Muslim boys are taught that Christians should be punished to death with the hopes of eventually eliminating all Christians. Knowledge of these books and teachings have actually come to light and the Saudi family has stated that they are making changes. Yet, the documentary clearly shows that ultraconservative Wahhabism is being forced onto the population whether anyone likes it or not. If ISIS and the Saudis have their ultraconservative Islamic beliefs in common, then it stands to reason that the Saudis would not object to (and might even be inclined to help), ISIS marching through areas of the Middle East (or parts of Europe and America), doing what they can to instill fear, impose ultraconservative forms of Islam, and help overthrow factions and governments that are not ultraconservative Islamic in nature.
