I WILL FOLLOW THEE

Having watched Jesus perform numerous miracles, a scribe approaches Him and volunteers to follow Jesus.  There are many who fall into the category that this man volunteered for. Impressed with what Jesus had performed it is quite possible that he being a “scribe” might have lots to write about.  What is to be considered withContinue reading “I WILL FOLLOW THEE”

DUSTING OFF A BOOK

God has blessed me with a library of hundreds of books, mostly commentaries.  I love to read some of those that are long out of print.  I admit that some of the old English writings are a challenge. I read one commentary on the Song of Solomon sometime ago, and in the process of consideringContinue reading “DUSTING OFF A BOOK”

ANOTHER UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE

Much ado is made about the Israelites crossing the Red Sea.  Research after research has been done to prove or disprove such an occurrence took place. Every effort of digging at various locations and even an effort to call it the Sea of Reeds, so it would make it less of a miracle!  While suchContinue reading “ANOTHER UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE”

BLESSING BECOMES SIN

Perhaps you have caught this in the past, however just in case you might have missed the idea of a blessing can easily become a blight; sin if you did not observe the connection! When Israel left Egypt, after 400 years and ten plagues had battered them under Moses leadership, (Exodus 7-11) a most interestingContinue reading “BLESSING BECOMES SIN”

A CONTENTIOUS WOMAN

While reading I came across the 13th verse of Proverbs 19.  I thought to myself: “Ted!  You were a most fortunate individual.  In fact you rate amongst the few in history that can make that claim!” I would have a hard time to recall that Patsy ever displayed being “contentious”.  She was the epitome ofContinue reading “A CONTENTIOUS WOMAN”

CONTEXTUAL INTERPRETATION

The question was quite simple:  “Why so many denominations?”  While that question was simple, the answer was not as easy as one might suppose.  In my library there about five books on Church History, most of them give insight from different angles while endeavoring to be 100% accurate.  However, I find that they are basicallyContinue reading “CONTEXTUAL INTERPRETATION”

ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA – CONTINUED

“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities.  For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.  Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed with receive condemnation upon themselves. .  For rulers are not a cause ofContinue reading “ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA – CONTINUED”

ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!  For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor?  Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to Him again?  For fromContinue reading “ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA”

SAUL … IN AGREEMENT

How long does one hold something over another person’s head?   You are in a conversation, in a group more-so, and a name is mentioned, someone quickly inserts an incident that took place or was supposed to have taken place thirty years previously.  It may be an insinuation with no accuracy, and yet the expression onContinue reading “SAUL … IN AGREEMENT”
