New Testament Readers

New Testament Readers

Someone told me of a conversation they had at a garage sale. The person said, “We only read and study the New Testament at our church.”             When I heard that, I was reminded of a house I saw on the news recently. It sat on the edge of the river. They suffered heavy rains. The earth under the home gave way and the whole house slid into the swollen river and floated away.             I then saw another picture…

A Timely Word

A Timely Word

Last month, an old acquaintance asked me to share a word with her online instant message prayer group for a certain day. Since I have no word except what the Lord gives me, I prayerfully opened my Bible to a scripture I hadn’t recalled seeing before. The passage is Jeremiah 7:3-7. Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, “Amend your ways and your deeds, and I will let you dwell in this place. Do not trust in…

Hold Fast

Hold Fast

A couple of weeks ago the phrase “hold fast” kept coming to me.  It came in the daytime and even in the middle of the night. Finally, I got up at 3:00 a.m. to see where it appeared in the Bible. The first instance was Hebrews 3:6 which reads, “but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.” The…

An Interesting Free Biblical Series

An Interesting Free Biblical Series

A client of mine shared a series of extraordinary websites with me a few weeks ago. I finally got around to watching them on You Tube over this past weekend. They cover Ron Wyatt’s accounts of his discovery of everything from the Red Sea crossing by Moses and the Israelites to his discovery of The Ark of the Covenant and beyond. As you probably know, once you finish one segment on You Tube, a related subject pops up. I sat…

End Times Insights

A friend sent me this notice. I believe it is very timely. After you’ve read it, please pass it on to others for the time is short. You can find this in its original form at www.olivetreeviews.org A Perfect Storm Is Brewing By Jan Markell July 27, 2015 Can we take talk about a “New World Order” seriously, or is it just conspiratorial? If there is such a movement, who are the players? How does Pope Francis fit in since…

The Accuser

The Accuser

Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.” One day, those of us who have put our faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah, will hear these words spoken in heaven. Jesus will throw…

Myth vs Truth

Myth vs Truth

In the Bible God tells us, “You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you” (Deuteronomy 4:2). In case we miss it, He tells us again in Deuteronomy 12:32, “Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.” In His final instructions in Revelation, He makes…

God’s Throne

God’s Throne

Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need. God offers and has provided the way for us to be saved through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for our sake. Therefore, we can come into His throne room with boldness and assurance and openly present our petitions of need before Him (Hebrews 4:16). He loves us. He is merciful. He…

Basic Training

Today’s devotional is from a book I co-authored with Ardythe Kolb entitiled Daily Walk with Jesus available here in paperback and e-reader. I John 2:17 And the world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God abides forever. Most often when we’re in a stew about something that’s going wrong, our problem is about time. We live in a minuscule slice of eternity, but it’s all we have, so we panic over…

One in Christ

One in Christ

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. In God’s eyes, no one person is above another, no matter their station or nationality. Gender holds no superiority over another. The only distinction to Him is if you are in Christ or not. There is no in-between—no sort-of Christian. Gray doesn’t count. It’s only black or white. In or out….
