Today’s Bitterness

Today’s Bitterness

The Spirit of Marah (Bitterness) On the third day when the Israelites journeyed back to Israel after their Exodus from Egypt, they found themselves at Marah, thirsty and out of water. There was a well there, but it was bitter. The Biblical account tells us in Exodus 15:23 (NASV): “When they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter; therefore it was named Marah.” So we learn that Marah means bitter in Hebrew….

Failing to Stand with Israel

Failing to Stand with Israel

I wonder what consequences our nation will suffer for failing to stand with Israel in the U.N. last week. God doesn’t take kindly to those trying to divide the land He has given to Israel. In Joel 3:2 He promises to bring all nations to the valley of Jehoshaphat (which is the Kidron Valley outside of Jerusalem) because they have divided the land. In Zechariah 14:2 He promises to gather all nations against Jerusalem. In the end-time discourse in Luke 21…

Nothing is Impossible

Nothing is Impossible

Galatians 1:1 Paul, an apostle (not sent from men, nor through the agency of man, but through Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead), Paul is a unique apostle. He was not one of the twelve original apostles who walked with Jesus while He was on earth. Instead, Paul met Jesus after His resurrection while he traveled to Damascus to arrest and do harm to Christians. That was no problem to Jesus. He took this…

God’s Compassion

God’s Compassion

  Psalm 40:11-12 Thou, O Lord, wilt not withhold Thy compassion from me; Thy lovingkindness and Thy truth will continually preserve me. For evils beyond number have surrounded me. My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see; they are more numerous than the hairs on my head; and my heart has failed me. Left to our own devices and walking in our own strength, we will fail every time. If it were not for God’s…

New Baby at our Place

I know this doesn’t look like a new baby, but it is. It’s my new fiction, based on fact which is out this month. So, do we call that “faction”? Hard Times in the Heartland the third in the series of The Late Sooner. It’s based on my dad’s letters to Mom and me during WW II and family stories. Like my other books, the facts are carefully researched and woven into this story. As a kid, I hated history…

Judgment Day

Judgment Day

  Romans 8:33 Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; We who belong to Christ, need not fear the day we stand before God to give an accounting. God Himself has declared all those who have received Christ and trust Him for salvation, “Not guilty.” God Himself is the one whom we have offended. He also is the judge, jury, and executioner. When we chose to choose Jesus as our Savior, God declared…

Temptations

Temptations

I Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it. Many people use this scripture to say, “God will not give me more than I am able to bear.” That is not what God says. He’s talking about temptation,…

Time Management

Luke 12:22 And He (Jesus) said to His disciples, “For this reason I say to you, do not be anxious for your life, as to what you shall eat; nor for your body, as to what you shall put on.” People today spend a great deal of energy building personal wealth. Women shop for hours for the most fashionable apparel. Others, fritter away their time following the latest program on TV, or search on Facebook what their friends had for…
