October 8, II Thessalonians 3

Thursday, October 08, 2015      3 comments

Do not grow weary in doing good. That's sometimes hard, especially when we may try to help and it seems that no-one wants it. I've been on both sides of this, sometimes right and sometimes wrong. I remember someone who thought they were doin... Read more

October 7, II Thessalonians 2

Wednesday, October 07, 2015      1 comments

Can you imagine what it would be like in the first century, you've accepted Christ and waiting for His return. Then you receive a letter saying that He's already come back and you missed it. That's what appears to have happened. What a blow t... Read more

October 6, II Thessalonians 1

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      0 comments

OK so there's still a lot of flesh in me because at first the thought of the pagans being punished by God is appealing. But then there is this part in my soul that weeps for them. God certainly will balance the books so to speak when the time ... Read more

October 5, I Thessalonians 5

Monday, October 05, 2015      1 comments

Be ready for the Day of The Lord! Every generation of believers since Christ came has believed that they were living in the last days, waiting expectantly for His return. Most of us live with the belief that He will return but not today, maybe... Read more

October 4, Numbers 25

Sunday, October 04, 2015      2 comments

Throughout the Old Testament worship of most any false god is called baal. There has been a struggle throughout recorded time of evil vs God, the tactics haven't changed much, probably because there isn't a need to change. My translation says t... Read more

October 3, Numbers 24

Saturday, October 03, 2015      0 comments

Balak asks Balaam to curse Israel several times, in the end though God has a different idea. Starting at verse 15 there are two different and valid interpretations, both can be correct. Balak's descendants and his people will eventually be co... Read more

October 2, I Thessalonians 4

Friday, October 02, 2015      1 comments

Again Paul addresses sexual immorality but I won't focus on that. It's the last section, the promise that just as Christ died and was risen, when He returns He will bring all of those who died in Him and gather together the remainder of His bri... Read more

October 1, I Thessalonians 3

Thursday, October 01, 2015      2 comments

Another word of encouragement, Paul was concerned that as he had been imprisoned that the church at Thessalonica might have fallen away. Timothy brings word that they are faithful. That should be the report of all the churches but sadly isn't.... Read more

September 30, I Thessalonians 2

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      2 comments

Paul and Silas were beaten and imprisoned at Phillipi, preaching the gospel was dangerous. Paul didn't shy away from it. It's getting dangerous today to preach the gospel, no so much here in the US but the trend isn't good. So many preachers ... Read more

September 29. I Thessalonians 1

Tuesday, September 29, 2015      2 comments

Paul commends the church at Thessalonica for their faith. They were actually a living example of Christianity. Something we should strive to become. Today's workout. Back; Squat reach, biceps curl, high knees, pull-up, grapevine, h... Read more

September 28, Colossians 4

Monday, September 28, 2015      1 comments

In this chapter Paul closes his letter, verse 7 makes me believe that Tychicus hand carried the letter and had other information that Paul did not want to write. A good lesson for all times, some things should not be written down , or shared on... Read more

September 27, Numbers 23

Sunday, September 27, 2015      1 comments

September 27, Numbers 23 We continue the story of Balak and Balaam, the evil forces trying to curse the people of God. Balak tries from different angles, different approaches to curse God's people. That tactic hasn't changed. The enemies... Read more

September 26, Numbers 22

Saturday, September 26, 2015      1 comments

The main focus of this chapter is usually how God can use a dumb ass to speak to someone, focusing on Balaam's donkey. But there is so much more, the Moabites were distant cousins of Israel, being descendants of Lot. We see that God does speak... Read more

September 25, Colossians 3

Friday, September 25, 2015      0 comments

There are a lot of places where God speaks on sexual immorality, seems like it might be important to Him. The truth is that as humans indulge in lusts they will continue to decline farther and farther to a base life. Here Paul even speak... Read more

September 24, Colossians 2

Thursday, September 24, 2015      2 comments

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ. This is what's happened to the modern world, we've rem... Read more
