Is It This or That?

The Jews could not grasp what Jesus said. In Matthew 24, He used the word “this” to reference a generation and it seems clear enough (though there is plenty of disagreement), that He ultimately was referring to the generation that would be alive during the coming Tribulation, which would end as He returned. However, there is also a near/far view because things certainly started with the generation living at the time of Jesus, didn’t it?

Can People Be Good?

There is an implied question between verses 23 and 24 with the use of the word “for.” Why did Barnabas do what he did? Because “…he was a good man…” (v. 24). Barnabas was a “good” man according to the Scriptures. But wait, I thought God said that all have sinned and fallen short of His glory and that our righteousness is filthy? Yes, God has said that and it is true.

Gospel Reset: Salvation Made Relevant Book Review

Christians need to be able to understand how to present the Gospel to people today who are largely godless and have no real concept of a loving God who hates sin. Most when they hear the word “sin” think of the archaic Dark Ages. Too many today believe God is simply “love” and that’s it. What they fail to understand is that God is also holy, perfect, righteous and for those who never come to Him in need of salvation, He becomes their Judge.

Push Toward Globalism Continues

There is also a Deep State circus happening in DC, specifically with respect to the Senate. Dems and a few RINOs are pulling out all the stops to ensure that Brett Kavanaugh does not become the next Supreme Court Justice. To this end, they have trotted out Dr. Ford to accuse Kavanaugh of rape some 35 years ago. Because of her claim, many on the Left simply choose to believe her. However, much of her testimony is virtually falling apart and the many connections Ford has to the CIA, the Dems and the Deep State is coming out.

Micah Explains True Religion in One Short Verse

Micah also states that we should “love kindness.” What does that mean? It means we should endeavor to be kind to all people and by its very nature, it means that we put our own wants and needs on the back burner. You cannot be concerned about how others “feel” if you are concerned primarily with yourself. To be kind means to always think in terms of how theĀ otherĀ person feels. What’s happening with them? What are they having to deal with? How can I make their life easier?

Daniel 11, Part 2

If Daniel 11 shows us anything, it shows us that God is intimately involved in humanity’s affairs is actively directs things to the climax of this age so that His purposes – all of them will be accomplished – while still allowing humanity to have some semblance of free will, in spite of the fall of man.

What’s Your Level of Commitment?

Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Daniel had spent decades living for God. By the time they got to Babylon, it was firmly embedded in their thinking and outlook. They could no more set aside their obedience to God than they would drink muddy, putrid water. There was no question about their direction. They were all in for God regardless of the cost.
