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.

Luciferian Age of the Spirit

What most of the public sees today is a very obvious though general “war” between good and evil; forces of seeming good in our government against the evil of the cabal. This is what most are focusing on and because of that, much at the periphery seems to go unnoticed by the average person. Unfortunately, it will likely be these very things that people don’t notice that will undoubtedly become major turning points for society in the near future.

The Real Coming Great Awakening

In the end though, it is important to understand that there will be no permanent change to any good degree in society. It will not last. It cannot last. I firmly believe that for however many years I have remaining, anti-God forces will continue to push their aberrant ideology on society. They will continue to lie and vilify anything that even smacks of biblical values. They will continue to change definitions of words, twisting them to their meaning. They will repeatedly foist their strained sexuality and gender fluidity on society. They will not relent regardless of how much good President Trump is able to achieve. We need to be aware of this.

God in My Everything?

The more we begin to rely on our emotions and how we feel about something, the less likely we are going to look to God’s Word as the final and absolute authority for life and practice as Christians. This appears to be what Ken Shigematsu (and too many others to count), is doing. His books attempt to draw people away from the truth of the cross and Scripture into the arena of “feelz” using monastic rituals to get us there. He wants us to embrace the type of rituals that many ancient orders used for the express purpose of getting closer to God. Yet, these things are not in Scripture so we should be very concerned.

Reading Through the Bible

It is important to look at your Bible reading time each day as an opportunity to learn more about our God, Creator, and Savior. Don’t use this time to “study” the Bible. Use it to read it, to get the flow of how the Bible moves. If you come to a passage that confuses you, this is where good commentaries come in. You want to get either good, quality “devotional” commentaries or the more “academic” commentaries. The former will often apply passages to our lives for us, connecting them with the truth of the biblical text. The latter is written by scholars who delve often quite deeply into the original languages. This is good, but it might actually slow you down quite a bit. My suggestion for those starting out is to reach for the devotional commentaries written by people like Warren Wiersbe, J. Vernon McGee and even John MacArthur. I have a library full of academic commentaries as well as devotional ones. They both help when I’m actually involved in studying certain books of the Bible. Dr. Thomas Constable is another great author whose commentaries, while delving into the original languages, provides good insight and background on the Bible.
