This is a good week to read the book of Esther. Purim, the celebration spoken of in the book, is celebrated on the Jewish calendar of Adar 14; Friday, February 26, in 2021 (beginning at sundown Thursday, through sundown Friday). Today, my wife Teresa joins with some of her thoughts on Esther. “I was thinking … Continue reading What Does Esther Mean to Us in Our Day?
There is a certain Christian post currently floating around fb, with which I cannot agree, so I want to post this response. That particular post begins with the statement, “The anti-christ comes after the rapture….” With all that goes on in these days, it’s always good to question, to search out the truth. I’m not … Continue reading Is the Rapture Really “Pre-Tribulation?” Did you realize that teaching is only a couple of hundred years old? What does Scripture really say?
Believers love to sing and speak of the kindness of God. Indeed, He is a kind God. Romans 2:4b (NAS) tells us that “the kindness of God leads you to repentance.” But there is a caveat to God’s kindness. God’s kindness is absolute, but it is so much more than just simple feel-good fluff. Romans … Continue reading The Kindness and the Judgment of God – They’re the same thing!
The dictionary defines “constant” as: “Something that is unchanging or invariable.” There is an old saying that goes, “the only thing constant in life is change.” I’ve also heard another one that says, “the only constants in life are death and taxes.” To those I would also add “road construction.” But in reality, only one … Continue reading What is the only real “constant” in life?

There are those in this world that deny the validity of Scripture. They know little to nothing of the truth of the oracles of God. Strong believers can … Continue reading Understanding Truth or Distorting Truth?
Believers are, or should be, familiar with the Fruit of the Spirit, from Galatians 5, and the Beatitudes, from Matthew 5. Both are excellent examples for life in Messiah. But are they related, connected together, somehow? [This concept is from something I read or heard some time back; don’t remember who or where. The bulk … Continue reading The Fruit of the Beatitudes
With all that goes on in these days, it’s always good to question, to search out the truth. I’m not promoting myself, or some new discovery, as this truth I write about I’m also reading elsewhere from various ministries and authors, and I believe it to be an important truth. I’m asking you to consider … Continue reading Better Pray that You’ll be “Left Behind”
Grace, grace, God’s grace. Grace that is greater than all our sin. (From the hymn, “Grace Greater Than Our Sin,” by Julia H Johnston (1849-1919). Atbash (אתבש) aht-bahsh. “Originally used to encode the Hebrew alphabet, an Atbash is formed by mapping an alphabet to its reverse, so that the first letter becomes the last letter” … Continue reading Now That’s A Great Grace!
