  1. Genesis 44:1-14

    . ● Gen 44:1-2 . .Then he instructed his house steward as follows: Fill the men's bags with food, as much as they can carry, and put each one's money in the mouth of his bag. Put my silver goblet in the mouth of the bag of the youngest one, together with his money for the rations. And he did as Joseph told him. When the brothers threw Joseph into that pit back in chapter 37, they fully intended to leave him there to die; all alone. So it makes sense that Joseph would want to gauge their...
  2. Sharing About Heaven . . .

    Well, we are indeed not here in order to be pleased, ourselves. We are here so we can become pleasing to our Father, like how Jesus is so pleasing to our Heavenly Father. So, in case anyone thinks he or she is the central reason for Heaven, yes he or she is indeed fooled. And in case one supposes Heaven is mainly for making us happy . . . we are fooled. However > if we become like Jesus, more and more . . . "gentle and lowly in heart" (in Matthew 11:28-30) > we will be pleasing to our...
  3. Hebrews 8 Meditation Using Strongs.

    A meditation on the words, not a translation ;) However, the main point we affirm is this: Our high priest clings to us as a garment who sits forever in the authority of the throne of the king in Heaven. The servant worthy of all praise, the true tabernacle fastened together by God, and not human hands. Since all high priests are appointed for bringing forth not only gifts but also sacrificial victims, it is natural that our high priest also has something to bring forth as an offering....
  4. Genesis 43:31-34

    . ● Gen 43:31-32 . .Then he washed his face and came out; and regaining his composure, said: Serve the food. So they set him a place by himself, and them by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves; because the Egyptians could not eat food with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination to the Egyptians. Apparently the brothers didn't think anything of Joseph eating alone. Maybe they just thought (as common Egyptian culture dictated) the other Egyptians were too far below...
  5. Put Them Off!

    Romans 13:8-10 ESV Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. As believers in Jesus Christ, love (Godlike) for other human beings is not...
  6. A Ready Servant

    We don’t know when Jesus will return. It truly could be at any moment. We should all take this moment to check ourselves against the instructions found in the Bible. Jesus himself made it clear that the most important teaching is to love God with all your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:36-40). If we love God, we will demonstrate that love by serving others with love. Every encounter we have with another human being should come from a place of love. That’s a...
  7. Church Growth And Authority - Why A Problem? What To Do?

    Why My Church is NOT Growing – Part 19 - What is our problem with authority? In this last posting regarding authority, we examine the true underlying problem with authority and what we should do about bringing correction. Check it out. GodsTruthInLove.org
  8. The Goodness Of God

    I wrote the below after reading this, about God’s goodness and our repentance as a response to Him: The Goodness of God Leads to Repentance Goodness, creation six days,* baptised in it, in spades. It from Him, His Face. God inherently Good, One’s inheritance made when we turn toward His wood,** walk in His way, to, through the Door, today.*** ____________ * Reference the several “and it was good” cited in Genesis chapter 1, after each day of creation **Matthew 16:24 *** The biblical...
  9. Genesis 43:30

    . ● Gen 43:30 . .Then Joseph made a hasty exit because he was overcome with emotion for his brother and wanted to sob. Going into his private room, he wept there. Only people who have found long-lost relatives can understand the wave of emotion that swept Joseph at this moment. It's a strange human experience. When my own full brother found me after losing track of each other for almost 26 years, I broke down and had to call in sick to work the next day. It was overwhelming; and I don't...
  10. Slight Of Hand

    It seems to me the good in humanity is in constant conflict with the bad. The old cowboy movies made that clear. Yet we could say that the mid 20th century was a good time for many of the first world nations even though there were constant wars. What made it good was not us or our godly ideals, but a sense of prosperity for those with the upper hand. It was when this prosperity started to dwindle towards the end of that century and up until now, that we now seem to see the world as...
  11. The Stone The Builders Rejected

    "The Stone the Builders Rejected" (Psalm 118:22-23, Matthew 21:42) is not just a parable and prophesy, but actually relates to a historical event that happened during the Building of the 1st Temple.

  13. Experiencing The Word(3) - Value The Word...

    What we value is what adds value to our lives! For anything to deliver its value it must first be valued! The worth of anything we do in life is first determined by what value we attached to that particular activity, thing or relationship! What gives value to anything is our sense of value for that thing. I will use a spiritual analogy here to drive home my point and it’s from the many stories of Jesus. We will read in the book of Mark 5:21-34. It’s a long read but please read the word with...
  14. Genesis 43:14-29

    . ● Gen 43:15-18a . . So the men took that gift, and they took with them double the money; as well as Benjamin. They made their way down to Egypt, where they reported to Joseph. . . .When Joseph saw Benjamin with them; he said to his house steward: Take the men into the house; slaughter and prepare an animal, for the men will dine with me at noon. The man did as Joseph said, and he brought the men into Joseph's house. It's highly unlikely Joseph recognized Benjamin since he was just a...
  15. Thank You God

    thank you God for getting a prize. I know you helped that happen, thank you for this Lord you are so very kind to me. it is like You were determined to bless me and I am incredibly humbled by that. Merciful God thank you very much for blessing me with this, thank you
  16. Romans 12:20 Burning Coals On The Head

    I go over 3 interpretations of Romans 12:20 and tell why this verse should be interpreted as bringing someone to repentance rather than shame (because you treated them better than they treated you) or its simply about supplying the needs of your enemy.
  17. Transcends Us... Transcends Us Not

    Are we a product of our environment or of our own thinking? Is not our thinking influenced by our environment? Whether we think in compliance with it, or seeking an alternative way to it, are the two still not influenced by the same? Did not Jesus give us an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT to weigh against our own? His set us free of worldly influence and allowed us to think "outside the box". We could become transcended. How many as a result repented of our environment in favour of His,...
  18. Temptation

    Before Jesus began His ministry here in this world, He spent time in the desert fasting and praying. During this time, Satan came to tempt Jesus with three weaknesses of mankind. “For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.” 1 John 2:16 (NIV) These are three tools the devil uses to manipulate all of us – the lust of the flesh – the lust of the eyes – the pride of life. Of course, Jesus could...
  19. My Phantom Beloved (poem)

    My phantom beloved how I wish you were mine. Our destinies echo in this haunt across time. Your name is a vapor. Your touch is the wind. Your love - the moonlight. My heart you have pinned. The world waxes darker. The moon shrinks into night. But your smile, beloved, makes the stars remain bright. Peace: it is taken, and men live by the sword. But love promised is worth fighting for. Nations may shift like the turbulent seas. And sirens sound with their sweet melodies. But I drown out...
  20. Genesis 43:1-14

    . ● Gen 43:1-7 . . But the famine in the land was severe. And when they had eaten up the rations which they had brought from Egypt, their father said to them: Go again and procure some food for us. . . . But Judah said to him: The man warned us "Do not let me see your faces unless your brother is with you". If you will let our brother go with us, we will go down and procure food for you; but if you will not let him go, we will not go down, for the man said to us "Do not let me see your...
