  • Fish Hooks, Nostrils, and a Humble Prayer

    One of the wickedest kings in all of Israel, if not the most wicked, was Manasseh, son of Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 33). What I find puzzling about the life of Manasseh is why God records so much of his dirty laundry. But before we look closely at God’s judgment, it should be mentioned that one […]

  • No Straggler in His Ranks!

    I love finding obscure but powerful truths in the Scriptures. Isaiah 14:31 is one such find. If you read this in a variety of translations you will find different wording each time. I believe the one that best fits the context reads, “The smoke comes out of the north and there is no straggler in […]

  • Sticks and Stones May Break Your Bones–But God Can Kill You! Part 2

    Yesterday we talked about God’s intolerance to the Sabbath stick gatherer from Numbers 15. What appeared to be an innocent stroll to pick up a few sticks turned out to be a mob-enticed crowd of stone throwers and one victim–quite dead.

  • No Risks, No Rewards – Part 2

    In Ecclesiastes 11 we read, “Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not
 what disaster may happen on the earth.” Before we probe into the meaning of this 
passage, I would first like to share a story that may help in our understanding. Recently I heard about a 94 year […]

  • No Risks, No Rewards – Part 1

    In Ecclesiastes 11 we read, “Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.” Well I tried this and all I found was soggy bread! What does it mean to cast your bread upon the waters? What will you receive in return? Before we delve into the Hebrew meaning of words and […]
