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.

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.

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.

Politics, the Bible and You

This is not to suggest it doesn’t matter who we vote for or that their character doesn’t matter. It is saying that their personal ethics [are] not the first or sole criteria for determining the best candidate. As God is raising up and taking down leaders, we, as citizens of America, should use our best judgment to choose the candidate that will maintain law and order, seek the welfare of all people, and to promote good and restrain evil as God defines it. We do our best and allow love and grace to abound.

Living in Light of the Times, Part 2

We need to get with God’s program and stop worrying about how we can change society so that things will “improve.” They aren’t going to improve. Hell is destined to be unleashed onto the earth and Satan will have his day in the form of Antichrist and he will be defeated with finality. Aren’t you glad? There is an end to this growing, stupefying morass of evil and it is on the horizon. Can you not see it? Can you not yet hear the footsteps of the Messiah as He returns in complete and utter victory to a world that has always rejected Him and His sovereign rule?

Numbers: Census and History of Israel

The book of Numbers is a book that should remind us of our propensity to wander away from God if left to our own desires. We must be diligent in serving Him and reminding ourselves that we need to do whatever it takes to remain true to our calling. Our calling is to faithfully submit our will for His at every turn.
