May 28, Acts 6

Thursday, May 28, 2015      1 comments

Stephen is doing mighty works for the Lord, and the religious leaders are threatened. I always found this a curious thing, not happy that God is moving but upset because it will effect their pockets. It says that false witnesses were set up, al... Read more

May 27, Acts 5

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      1 comments

Ananias and Sapphira usually get the most attention in this chapter but I want to look at Gamaliel. This man shows profound wisdom, showing that in so many cases cult followings have risen up focusing on a single man but when that man is gone s... Read more

May 26, Acts 4

This healing from the last chapter has caused a stir, the religious people are a bit disturbed. Peter makes a profound statement, "we can only speak on what we have seen and heard". In other words one can only testify on what they have witness... Read more

One of the problems with reading a story is getting all of the emotions to come through. This man was lame from birth, now he is leaping and praising. Think about this for a minute, lame from birth means he never walked, now he's leaping an... Read more

A house with leprosy. I have to believe this means a case of mold or fungal growth in the walls. We know how difficult it can be to get rid of certain molds, and the health hazards associated with them. It's nothing new, they had mold p... Read more

May 23, Leviticus 13

Saturday, May 23, 2015      1 comments

The main topic of this chapter is Leprosy, but that term includes nearly any skin disease. Secluding the person infected seems harsh but there is a basic principle of protecting the masses. Chicken pox and measles would fall in this category,... Read more

May 22, Acts 2

Friday, May 22, 2015      1 comments

The focus of this chapter it typically that the Holy Spirit comes and people speak in tongues, but I am looking farther down. It's the last verse, day by day the Lord added to the number those who were being saved. Most churches will see... Read more

May 21, Acts 1

With the loss of Judas the remaining disciples decided that they needed another to make 12. I've wondered at times if this was really necessary or just men doing stuff for the sake of doing stuff. Some believe that Matthias was also Zacchaeus ... Read more

Peter said he's going fishing. He made a career change that wasn't quite working out. For the last three years he lived with Jesus and was supported by ministry. That job is gone so it's back to the old standby. The rest followed him. We're... Read more

He is risen! What more can one say? For 2000 years the world has tried to deny that He rose, that He is a myth and that His followers took the body. But where is it? All but one of Jesus closest disciples were executed for their beliefs, wou... Read more

Jesus' final day, everything that was done to Him on this day was brutal. We see the true base nature of humanity here, enjoying the sport of torture and torment. Knowing that people can and will do these things, how can anyone think that huma... Read more

May 17, Leviticus 12

This chapter deals with purification periods after childbirth. I tried to find a reason for the difference in time between a boy or girl but the opinions vary so greatly. One study indicated a hormonal thing, that a woman's body took lon... Read more

God defines clean and unclean animals. There has been and will continue to be different theories about why some are clean and others are not. I think some are obvious such as carrion and water scavengers eating decaying flesh, essentiall... Read more

Pilot asks Jesus, 'What is truth?'. It's a philosophical question that egg heads have been asking for centuries. It poses a question that can man really know truth and is truth for one person the same for another. It is prevalent in our acad... Read more

We call the example of prayer that Jesus taught us, our father, "the lord's prayer' but this is really the lord's prayer. Jesus prays, and He prays for His disciples not only present at that time but He prays for future disciples. He prays ... Read more
