Everyone Doing What is Good in Their Own Eyes

It is going to get really difficult for Christians as things progress toward the end. It’s just the way it is as revealed in Scripture. Christians are going to once again be the scapegoat for everything the world doesn’t like and they will not hesitate to take it out on us. What’s our recourse? Get and stay close to God! Read His Word daily. Commune with Him often. Seek to live as He would like us to live.The road ahead looks very bleak, at least for a while, until the Lord Himself returns. I believe we can have peace in the midst of the trials headed our way, but that peace will not happen accidentally. It will happen as we do what we need to do to draw and remain close to God our Father.

The Ups and Downs of Israel in Judges

Whose fault is this? Why did this new generation of Israelites grow up without knowing about God Himself or the things that He had done for Israel?!

Joshua Calls Israelites on Failure to Obey

As Christians, we have something the Israelites did not have. We have the Holy Spirit living within us. He seals us unto the day of redemption and nothing can break that seal, not even our puny “free will” (Ephesians 4:30). God the Holy Spirit also empowers us to live a life whereby our words, thoughts, and actions bring great glory to God. Would you agree with me that even with the Holy Spirit within us, it is often difficult to live the life that God requires? Yet, we must persevere. As Paul says, we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12). Of course, Paul is not saying we must work for our salvation. He is saying we must work or cooperate with God as His character is being formed in us in this life. The results of our salvation are what need to work out in and through us. It is a process called sanctification that must happen for each and every Christian.

Bible Summary: Overview of the Old Testament

Together, the 37 individual books make up the entire Old Testament of the English Bible. In order to appreciate the chronological history of the Hebrew nation (prior to even becoming the Hebrew nation), until the Inter-testamental period, it is important to gain a solid understanding of each of these eleven chronological books; their themes, the period they cover and how they connect. Once these are understood, then the blanks can be filled in so to speak with the complementary, wisdom and prophetic books.
