  1. Judges 2 -- Breaking The Altars Of Freud, Marx And Darwin

    2 The angel of the Lord went up from Gilgal When Israel crossed the Jordan they took 12 stones out of the river as a memorial, that was in Gilgal. Also, at that time they renewed the covenant with the Lord by circumcising all the males. Gilgal would be similar to Plymouth rock. It is the spot where the Israelites first landed when they came into the good land. to Bokimand said, Bokimand means the place of weeping. We have gone from Plymouth rock to the place of weeping. We have gone from...
  2. Proverbs 4 -- The Bread Of Wickedness And The Wine Of Violence.

    1 Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. This is why we study history. Pay attention to Martin Luther King Jr., or to Malcolm X, or to Michael Jordan. That is how you gain understanding. 2 I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. Everyone wants to forsake the teaching of the father. People hear what they want to hear. It takes faith in your father to listen to him. 3 For I too was a son to my father, still tender, and cherished by...
  3. Deuteronomy 28 -- A Slave That No One Will Buy

    1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of Jehovah thy God, to take heed to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that Jehovah thy God will set thee supreme above all nations of the earth; We saw this at the time of Solomon and we also saw it during the days of Truman and Eisenhower. 2 and all these blessings shall come on thee and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of Jehovah thy God. 3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city,...
  4. Luke 17 -- Surprise! The Kingdom Of God Is In Your Midst!

    17 Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. We just saw a video of police shooting a man walking away from them 7 times in the back. As a result there were protests that resulted in a lot of damaged property. This video of the man being shot in the back is certainly a “thing that will cause people to stumble”. I have no issue with you saying that they should not have responded by smashing windows. But they...
  5. Luke 20 Pretend Shepherds Versus The Real One

    1 One day as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courts and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. 2 “Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?” Great question. If a cop comes up to you they need to show you their badge, that tells you by what authority they are acting as a cop. Teachers also have to be certified. We go through a lot of different tests....
  6. Psalm 2 -- Therefore You Kings, Be Warned

    1 Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The Platform in the Democrats National convention discussed religious freedom in the US -- Following their promised protection of free exercise and celebration of tolerance, the Democrats added a condition: “Democrats believe that freedom of religion and the right to believe — or not to believe — are fundamental human rights. We will never use protection of that right as a cover for discrimination.” The platform also contained a...
  7. Romans 10 -- What Not To Do If You Want To Be Saved

    So then, if you want to be saved there is one thing you can’t do. Many people talk about the things that you need to do to get saved. You need to pray, yet some people have gotten saved who didn’t pray. You need to seek the Lord, yet some people have gotten saved who weren’t seeking for the Lord. You need to understand the gospel, yet there are people who have been saved who don’t have any understanding. In truth the Lord has already done everything you need, you simply need to receive it....
  8. Ezekiel 34 -- Shepherds Who Only Take Care Of Themselves

    34 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Woe to you shepherds of Israel who only take care of yourselves! Should not shepherds take care of the flock? The mayor of Chicago has banned protests on her street. She said this is all about protecting her family. She was elected to be the shepherd of the entire city, a city with protests, riots and looting in the streets. A great...
  9. Isaiah 57 -- No Justice, No Peace

    Right now in the US there is a great divide. The president exemplifies this divide. The news media has lost its credibility being accused of being “fake news”. People on either side of this divide see the other side as their enemy. The tea party with Sarah Palin was disrespected, mocked and ridiculed. This has caused an even greater animosity towards the media from those who feel their voices have not been heard. Their concerns are disrespected. 1 The righteous perish, and no one takes it to...
  10. Luke 16 -- Say What?

    Luke 15 has three stories that are very familiar topics to preachers. The lost sheep, the lost coin, and the prodigal son. Everyone “knows” those stories, but then you come to Luke 16 and it is “say what?” When I come to a chapter like this I have to wonder if I really understood what I was reading because if I did why is this chapter so mind boggling? In chapter 15 we are rejoicing over finding something that was lost. This chapter is about a manager who is about to lose his job because the...
  11. Acts 9 -- Adventures In Prayer

    9 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest 2 and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. Psalm 55:1 Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea; 2 hear me and answer me. My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught 3 because of what my enemy is saying, because of the threats of the...
  12. Acts 8 -- What Can Stand In The Way Of The Gospel?

    8 And Saul approved of their killing him. Just like those that approved of the crucifixion of Jesus. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Psalm 80:1 Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth 2 before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us. 3 Restore us, O God; make your face...
  13. Acts 6 -- The Last Straw And Acts 7 -- Are These Charges True?

    6 In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. 2 So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.3 Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spiritand wisdom. We will turn this...
  14. Acts 5 -- How To Stand During Persecution

    5 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet. 3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at...
  15. Acts 4 -- Is It Right To Listen To You?

    4 The priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to Peter and John while they were speaking to the people. 2 They were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead. 3 They seized Peter and John and, because it was evening, they put them in jail until the next day.4 But many who heard the message believed; so the number of men who believed grew to about five thousand. One of the first questions...
