24-HOUR COVERAGE

It’s the way my brain works.  I see something small, and it might well be something of insignificance, but it “latches on” and turns into pondering.  Ultimately, it will relate itself to some thought from the Scriptures that behind it has multiplied thoughts from other portions of the Word of God, the Bible. I wasContinue reading “24-HOUR COVERAGE”

THRU MANY DANGERS, TOILS, & SNARES

A friend wrote recently, and quoted those words from Amazing Grace. (John Newton)  In comparison, I would like to believe that I never measured anything close to him by a fouled up life.  However, in our tendency to grade sin as bad, worse, or even so categorically as beyond the imagination, we would like toContinue reading “THRU MANY DANGERS, TOILS, & SNARES”

SAUL TO PAUL

Over the years I have been called some interesting names, but let’s face it, I remain the same person that my parents named me.  That name Edward could have come from a great grand-father who was gored to death by a bull, or possibly an uncle who fell on the job, gained gangrene in hisContinue reading “SAUL TO PAUL”

WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?

Perhaps, at least let us hope, that the current crises has seen a few Bibles taken off the shelves, dusted off and read.  Many probably had a hard time finding the Easter Story, mainly because God and His Word have been relegated to “Emergency” situations only.  With the churches closed, at least the pastors didContinue reading “WHO IS MY NEIGHBOR?”

SEATED AT HIS FEET

We have oft read the story of Jesus visiting the home of Mary and Martha!  You will find it in Luke 10, beginning at verse 38 and continuing through verse 42. Reading through the Scriptures you become aware of the fact that numerous women often followed and supported the Lord Jesus as He ministered hereContinue reading “SEATED AT HIS FEET”

JACOB

Reading through Genesis we garner truths concerning parents showing partiality to one child above another.  In particular we refer to Isaac who had married Rebekah. Genesis 25:19 and following!  She had twins, Esau and Jacob.  Isaac favored Esau, and Rebekah favored Jacob. (You need to read the entire story.) On an occasion when Esau cameContinue reading “JACOB”

THE STONES CRY OUT

Undoubtedly you have read of some of the findings of archeologists, things they “dig up” from the most unexpected places.  I visited and viewed the Dead Sea scrolls, and came away knowing little more than when I arrived.  Admittedly, I was not totally ignorant of what to expect prior to that visit, yet, I realizedContinue reading “THE STONES CRY OUT”

TO WHOM SHALL WE GO

Those words appear in John 6:68.  The context makes them stand out significantly, for Jesus had been attracting crowds who were listening to each word that He spoke, with many giving indication that they were so captivated that it was their intention of becoming one of His disciples. We are accustomed to people giving aContinue reading “TO WHOM SHALL WE GO”

THE DEMONIAC OF GADARA

We are not always able to determine demonic oppression in an individual.  In our modern society we would probably desire an individual be sent to a Psychologist, or Psychiatrist, prior to acknowledging that the possibility exists that they may very well be experiencing demonic oppression, or even possession.  We have come a long way, butContinue reading “THE DEMONIAC OF GADARA”
