The Reasons for this Blog

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 I remember sitting on the living room floor and my fatherContinue reading “The Reasons for this Blog”

What Deception?

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the fatherContinue reading “What Deception?”

Which God Do You Serve?

I often bring up the name of God in many of my blogs, and it is not necessarily to emphasize the spelling of the name in any particular language. “Name” means more than a string of letters that are associated with that which a person or deity is called by the phonetic pronunciation of thoseContinue reading “Which God Do You Serve?”

The Woman and the Dragon

“In your distress when all these things have found you in the latter days, then you will return to Yahweh your God, and you will listen to his voice.” Deuteronomy 4:30. I have maintained the book of John’s Revelation needs to be examined in small portions and compared to other scripture to find its meaning.Continue reading “The Woman and the Dragon”

The Will of Yahuah

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” ~Jesus, from Matthew 7:21 According to Jesus, we must do the will of his Father if we are to be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.Continue reading “The Will of Yahuah”

Be Holy for I am Holy

“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.’” 1 Peter 1:14-16 When a New Testament writer quotes scripture, we should takeContinue reading “Be Holy for I am Holy”

Praying In His Name

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us fromContinue reading “Praying In His Name”

Who is a Deacon?

“For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 3:13 Once I researched what it is to be a deacon, I was surprised to learn the “office of a deacon” was never an office.Continue reading “Who is a Deacon?”

Honour the Sabbath?

In previous blog posts, I have covered three of the Ten Commandments. Do not murder, do not be a false witness, and do not misuse His name. Remembering the Sabbath seems to be pretty important to Yahweh, and it is on equal ground with commandments such as do not murder, yet it is mostly ignoredContinue reading “Honour the Sabbath?”

The Wedding Garment

“But when the king came in to look at the guests, he saw there a man who had no wedding garment. And he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ And he was speechless.” Matthew 22:11-12 An overlooked prophecy by Zechariah which, I referenced in my last blogContinue reading “The Wedding Garment”

What is Church?

“If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.” Revelation 13:10 During the past two millennia, the church or the word church, has taken onContinue reading “What is Church?”

More than One Law?

“Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,as he does in all his letters when he speaksContinue reading “More than One Law?”

The Great Day of Yahuah

Scripture has much to say about the great and coming day of the LORD. Unfortunately, my experience has been that the subject is treated with silence from the pulpit. I am somewhat puzzled why this is the case with the subject matter spoken about by virtually every writer in the Old and New Testaments. IContinue reading “The Great Day of Yahuah”

Finding the Scroll

Then Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the secretary, “I have found the scroll of the Torah in the temple of Yahweh,” and Hilkiah gave the scroll to Shaphan and he read it. 2 Kings 22:8 There were many cases of righteous kings and unrighteous kings of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel. OneContinue reading “Finding the Scroll”

Don’t be a Jeroboam

And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all of the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite: Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned,Continue reading “Don’t be a Jeroboam”

Vanity

Ecc 1:1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.Ecc 1:2 Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.Ecc 1:3 What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?Ecc 1:4 A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remainsContinue reading “Vanity”

Mixing Iron and Clay

The debate surrounding the sons of God named in Genesis chapter six and to whom they are referring to, really isn’t much of a debate anymore, because not many in mainstream Christianity talk about it, and it is often dismissed by the theory that the “sons of God” are just the sons of Seth, Adam’sContinue reading “Mixing Iron and Clay”

A Murderous Heart

How much innocent blood is shed in the world today on a daily basis? Has anything changed since the beginning? The sixth commandment Yahweh God gave to the twelve tribes at Mount Horeb was Deuteronomy 5:17 “Thou shalt not kill”. Genesis 4:9-10 Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said,Continue reading “A Murderous Heart”

Information from Ezra We Stopped Reading, and Hope in the Resurrection of the Dead

The book of Revelation in the Bible is often neglected in Christianity due to its supposed difficulty and plain weirdness. Also, many people have made a lot of money trying to explain the visions John had and wrote down in the book. People often try to set dates for events, that are always wrong, whichContinue reading “Information from Ezra We Stopped Reading, and Hope in the Resurrection of the Dead”

What’s in a name?

It is interesting unraveling some of the linguistic situations that present themselves in modern translations of the Bible. In the Christian Bible there is the Old Testament, which was originally written in Hebrew, and the New Testament, which was originally written in Greek; or was it? Then there is the Septuagint, which seventy Hebrew translatorsContinue reading “What’s in a name?”

The Church and Israel, the Church or Israel, or Both? Faith Works.

When did the church begin? What is the church anyway? Who or what is Israel? Replacement theology; Dispensational theology; Covenant theology; Commonwealth theology; does anyone even know what theology system their brand of Christianity is? Does anyone care? What are the core beliefs of your doctrine, and where did they come from? The purpose ofContinue reading “The Church and Israel, the Church or Israel, or Both? Faith Works.”

Sixty-Six Books???

Have you ever wondered how the Christian Bible came into existence? I never gave it much thought until about six years ago when I started reading early church fathers’ writings. In an effort to stamp out gnosticism, stoics, and the likes of Marcion, who taught a lawless gospel, people like Ireneaus, Origen, Tertullian, Jerome andContinue reading “Sixty-Six Books???”
