Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

I have learned that talking to people about what they eat and their health is like talking to them about their need for salvation, which of course, is far more important. My point is that people tend to not realize the problem they are in, whether it has to do with foods they eat or the beliefs they hold. My wife and I have spent time talking with people who suffer from all sorts of maladies and illnesses, and we use ourselves as examples, so in that sense, we are living examples of what it means to turn bad health into good. Yet, while they seem to listen and appreciate what we have to say, they don’t put our advice into practice.

Job’s Deeper Meaning

It is fitting that from the very beginning, long before the redemptive work of the Messiah was even foretold, we have a type of Christ where we see the anguish, the depths of suffering, and the physical, emotional, and mental pain seen in the character of Job. This book provides us with great insight into the tremendous sacrifice and suffering that Jesus willingly took on for us, so that we might gain salvation. Without His suffering, we would not have that solution to our problem.

Job’s Problems

Once again, God gives Satan permission to actually harm Job in his person. This points one more time to God’s absolute sovereignty over all Creation. Satan can do nothing to you or me unless God allows it. This is such an important point that we actually need to spend time contemplating its ramifications. There is another point that you are possibly thinking about as well and we will do our best to answer it. The question, “Why does God allow this type of evil to come to a person in the first place, especially when that person is apparently completely dedicated to God?” That question has an answer and it is brought out in the book of Job. It does not come right to the point though, but stretches out over the course of the 42 chapters contained within it.

Music That Moves the Emotions

How many times have you cried at a sad scene in a movie? I’m sure you’ve done it but not necessarily for the reason you think. Sure, the scene itself might have been touching with actors doing a very good job of selling the scene making you forget you’re watching a movie. But the most important aspect of that scene was put in during post-production: the music and sound effects. Gifted movie music composers create music that compliments each scene and helps drive that scene and bring out the required viewer’s emotions.

Has Q Been Comped and/or Taken Over by Black Hats?

It is interesting to watch patriots argue about this. They say it profiting shouldn’t matter, that we’re all in this together and who cares if someone makes money off of the process? These very same people would probably have a severe problem with those within the area of religion who are also in it for the profit of it. They would not speak kindly of them. People who are involved in religion for profit are easily seen by most people. They often turn people away from the church because of their greed. Yes, on one hand, they preach a “message” of faith that on the surface appears to be true and biblical. However, it becomes patently clear that they are also twisting the message to enrich themselves.

It’s Really About Obedience, Pt 2

King Asa took what the prophet told him and became even more encouraged to do the right thing as far as God was concerned! He went even further and gained strength from Azariah’s words so that he had the courage to rid the land of idols. Then the next few verses tell us that Asa offered many offerings to the Lord. Because of this, all of Judah rejoiced and gained new strength to renew their covenant with the Lord.

It’s Really About Obedience, Pt 1

I’m inclined to think that this happened to Rehoboam during his third year of ruling. He began possibly to pat himself on the back. Things were going very well. He was using wisdom to make good decisions. His sons were helping him rule throughout Judah. Look at all the blessings coming into Judah as well! So maybe Rehoboam began to relax his standards where God was concerned. All of a sudden, he’s simply doing his own thing and ignoring God’s rule. The people of Judah saw that it was no longer important to their king, so they adopted the same attitude. This is a lesson for us Christians as well. People “read” our lives and they wind up making judgments about God based on what they see in us.
