  1. Psalms 143

    I read Psalms 143 verse 9, " Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me." The Lord told my soul that He will deliver torture victims from their enemies and will heal their damaged bodies and hearts. The Lord told my soul that He will heal torture victims. The Lord told my soul that He loves torture victims very much. The Lord told me that He will heal the wounds of torture victims and will heal torturers so that they become beautiful souls.
  2. Proverbs Analysis - Chapter 1 (part 3)

    I want to wrap up this analysis of Chapter 1 of Proverbs by highlighting an interesting aspect of wisdom. Per Proverbs, wisdom is an active force (it is mentioned as a spirit in Ephesians 1:17). It "cries aloud in the street" and raises its voice "in the markets" (Proverbs 1:20 ESV). Wisdom appears to be an entity (or something like it) that has a particular agenda (to be heard and accorded with) that it actively pursues in the places of the world. Wisdom is found in the streets, in the...
  3. Proverbs Analysis - Chapter 1 (part 2)

    Having established that we must be in a right relationship with God before we can receive wisdom we are then introduced to two archetypes (by implication): the fool and the wise person. We are told "fools despise wisdom and instruction" (Proverbs 1:7 ESV). I will refrain from making a Mr. T joke here but let us not be pitiable fools but rather be wise, who by implication love wisdom and instruction. I also want to emphasize the word "despise" used here. It does not say "ignore" but...
  4. Proverbs Analysis - Chapter 1 (part 1)

    The Book of Proverbs is considered to be authored by King Solomon (although which of these proverbs are "curated" from collected Jewish wisdom literature of the time and which are original to him I am not sure), who is the wisest man who ever lived and ever shall live (1 Kings 12 ESV). I think it interesting to note that the Lord as an author uses certain archetypes by way of instruction as to what a quality of an attribute means when being played out in one's life. That is to say if Solomon...
  5. Genesis 24:23-31

    . ● Gen 24:23-25 . . Pray tell me; he said: whose daughter are you? Is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night? She replied: I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor. And she went on: There is plenty of straw and feed at home, and also room to spend the night. That did it. The identity of Becky's family was the final chop that felled the tree. Abraham's steward had no more doubts about the Lord's providence. At this point, he put the ring in...
  6. Getting The Victory Over Sin.

    I am a discipler at my church and have written a basic "Christianity 101" course for those I disciple. Among the things that are most important to new believers is the means of victory over sin. Since sin is perhaps the believer's greatest barrier to fellowship with God, learning to deal with it effectively is a crucial part of the process of discipleship. Below are delineated the basic "tools" God has supplied to all of His children that they might live victorious over sin. 2...
  7. A Little Word On Storms(4)

    A foundation built on the word is what guarantees our victory in the world. A foundation built on the word is what guarantees our victory through the storms. Jesus has some word on the storms of life and how to deal with them when they do come. We have this parable in Matthew 7:24-27. Is there any scripture so direct and profound in dealing with the storms of life? Let's read. 'Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built...

  9. Walking Away From Conflict And Letting God Protect Us

    We oftentimes hear that we should stand up for ourselves and fight for what's ours. While I agree that there are rights that are worth defending oftentimes the methods we choose of defending those rights are not in accordance with the will of God. When we walk in the will of God and give him a chance to render judgment for us (instead of rushing to act or to secure what could be a short-term victory) we are walking in the path that God has laid out for us and therefore our footsteps will be...
  10. Genesis 24:16d-22

    . ● Gen 24:16d . . She went down to the spring, filled her jar, and came up. The "spring" in this case was a small pool of water fed by an aquifer, which is different than an artesian well. Artesians gush, while aquifers seep. Some of the shafts of ancient man-made wells in that part of the world resemble mini open-pit mines; with steps hewn into the sides to facilitate access to the water for dipping jars and buckets. Becky's spring was likely constructed like that. ● Gen 24:17a . .The...
  11. The Redemption Of Eve By The New Adam

    I had originally planned to put this in my "Power of the Tongue" series but after spending some time thinking about it I think this blog post would be better off as a stand-alone. For those who have not read the "Power of Tongue" series of posts I am currently blogging about the Bible's treatment of words and the power of the tongue. I think this is very important because the Lord puts tremendous emphasis on words (for he is the incarnation of the Word itself). It is with our words (and our...
  12. Genesis 24:11-16c

    . ● Gen 24:11 . . He made the camels kneel down by the well outside the city, at evening time, the time when women come out to draw water. "evening time" is from an ambiguous word that indicates any time between high noon and sunset as opposed to morning which can indicate any time between sunrise and high noon. ● Gen 24:12 . . And he said: O Lord, God of my master Abraham, grant me good fortune this day, and deal graciously with my master Abraham: This steward was truly a God-fearing...
  13. Hurricanes

    This one is about hurricanes. On the radar, they can look impressive. If one thinks of them as just another creation of God, maybe some kind of message to those who persist in abusing our environment, God says, I can do so even better than you!
