Joseph’s Life and Lessons, Part 7

Let’s remember, that this is all part of God’s plan because it was in Egypt that God determined to produce a nation that would ultimately be completely sold out to Him alone. This is yet future. It has not happened yet as a continual streak. It has occurred here and there throughout history but not as an unbroken way of living before God Almighty. This will happen to the nation of Israel one day, when their hearts will be so sold out to God that they will never leave or forsake Him as a nation again. This will occur in the coming Millennial Kingdom following the Tribulation/Great Tribulation.

Joseph’s Life and Lessons, Part 5

As things continue to unfold in Scripture, we will learn about more of God’s plan to create and ultimately save a people He will create for His purposes. It didn’t begin with Joseph. It actually began much further back than that, but the time was right for God to actually put His hand to creating a people He would call Israelites (Jewish people), who would not only be given a large place in the Middle East, but would give birth to the Person who would become sin though He personally knew no sin that salvation might be offered to all who would in faith believe.

Joseph’s Life and Lessons, Part 4

Sometimes, it is very difficult for us as Christians to accept the circumstances that we find ourselves in through no fault of our own. I’m not talking about having to deal with problems we create for ourselves. I’m talking about those things that happen that affect us that we did not see coming. If God loves us, will never forsake us and will always remain with us, when things happen that we do not expect, is it logical to say that those things just “happened” or took us or God by surprise? We want to ask “where is God?” when in point of fact, He never left and is creating circumstances that might appear negative but they have His purposes in mind. What are those purposes? They are always to do two things. First, they are refine us and recreate the character of Jesus within us. Second, they are designed to always give God glory.

Exodus: Book of Deliverance

Exodus teaches us that against all odds, God’s purposes are accomplished, whether anyone likes it or not. It may take time to unroll but it will be seen and God will be victorious. Exodus also teaches us that we can participate in God’s victories through faith; our ability to take God at His Word and simply follow Him. Yet, no one can do this perfectly. The best we can do is submit ourselves to Him on a daily basis and when we do fall, get up quickly, admit/confess our sin and once again, move on with Him.

Why Are Satan and Demons Allowed to Produce Miracles? Part 1

We see throughout the Old and New Testaments these examples of what Satan is capable of doing. Again, I’d like to emphasize that anything he does, he does only with God’s permission, but clearly, he is a very powerful being and the fact that he exists mainly in the spiritual dimension gives him the power to bring about what we call miracles, but for him, they are simply part of his natural ability. I also think that this is why Christians should not chase after miracles per se, because in doing so, our emotions will often catch us up so that we will become so myopic that we will accept miracles from any source, believing that only God would provide what we deem the “miracles” to His children. This is absolutely incorrect thinking and the fact that God has forbidden any connection with the occult or dark arts is proof that alleged miracles can come not just from God, but from Satan and his demons as well. Satan exists in the supernatural realm, therefore it is reasonable to conclude that performing what we call miracles are natural for him. However, he is always kept in check by God.
