  1. Understanding Christ: A Look Through The Book Of Luke - Luke 18

    Unlike the Luke Gospel chapter 11 that opened with a special request from the disciples to Jesus to teach them how to pray, Luke 18 opened with Jesus initiating this discussion that bothers on a vital ingredient for a successful prayer life. We will read the text and learn one or two lessons on the subject of prayer. Like I submitted before the book of Luke more than any other of the remaining gospels highlighted and dwell on Jesus prayer life, how he demonstrated and taught prayer. "And...
  2. Liberal Abortion Laws (infanticide)

    Liberal abortion laws (infanticide) This is not about Trump, or liberals, but about basic human rights I do not think that all posts on abortion are political in nature. I do not identify with any political party, as do many Americans. Independent voters are becoming more common. I do believe that abortion is a very serious symptom of a culture that has grown used to a certain kind of ‘rot’ and think it is normal. Sort of like the times before the civil rights movement. The corruption of...
  3. Song 1:3

    . ● Song 1:3 . . Your oils have a pleasing fragrance, your name is like purified oil; therefore the maidens love you. ASIDE: I'm personally convinced that Song is just as much a fantasy as Mozart's Magic Flute. The reason being that in Ecc 7:28, Solomon complained that he was unable to find even one good woman among a thousand. In other words: in my estimation, Shulah was a daydream; viz: the kind of girl that Solomon always wished to meet, but never did. She was a girl who only existed in...
  4. Upon This Shifting Sand

    Life is full of hints from God showing us how fragile and powerless the modern institutions of mankind truly are, for instance when they can be brought to their knees even by simple snowfall. Thank you Lord for the reminders of how unprepared we really are for reality, especially in today's world of dependence on the ingenuity of man. Heaven help the human powers and principalities who rule over mankind if the man made electric power ever went out for an extended period of time, even if only...

  6. Understanding Christ: A Look Through The Book Of Luke - Luke 17

    After reaching over 3,000 in words for yesterday's blog post, which is the longest blog post on this blog I am hoping that today I can keep that numbers today under 1000, which if you will observe is the normal range for the length of a post on this blog. This however changed with the LUKE CHALLENGE! How do you achieve brevity when the text for your study has been described as the gospel of details? An average chapter in the Luke gospel averages 40 verses per chapter. Compare this with other...
  7. Pondering Proverbs 30:4-5

    Proverbs 30:4 (EHV): Who has gone up to Heaven and come down? Who has gathered up the wind in the palms of his hands? Who has wrapped the water in a garment? Who has set up all the ends of the earth? What is his name and the name of his son? Tell me if you know? "What is his name and the name of his son? Tell me you know?" God would eventually move to answer these two questions, but to emphasize for all time that the answers would come from mercy and not through human wisdom or...
  8. Foolish Man Foolish Woman Equals Hell

    How Do We Make Godly Decisions? - Study of Proverbs 9:13-18 Foolish Man Foolish Woman Equals Hell If you act foolishly without wisdom you will find yourself, according to God’s Word, in a living hell. Check out the most recent look into Proverbs in this posting. GodsTruthInLove.org
  9. Song 1:2

    . ● Song 1:2a . . May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth. A lover's kiss doesn't always have to be mouth-to-mouth. For example kissing the hand used to be common courtesy in some parts of the world, same as greetings consisting of kissing on the cheek. However, I think we can safely assume that Shulah had an affectionate kiss in mind rather than courtesy. A kiss on the shoulder would suffice for that purpose. That kind of a kiss, though maybe not very passionate, is at least intimate....
  10. Understanding Christ: A Look Through The Book Of Luke - Luke 16

    Finally, we are here in that chapter, Luke 16, a chapter famous for two parables. The parable of the unjust steward and that of Lazarus. How I love the story of Lazarus. It was straight forward and down to earth, everyone seems to agree on the message this parable seems to be passing across. It's the other parable, the one of the unjust steward that worries me. I never really understood what Jesus was trying to teach here. All my Sunday school teachers never made it easy too, I tend to hear...
  11. 12. The Body Of Christ. What Will The Body Of Christ Do.

    What will the Body of Christ do. Reigning with Christ. `If we endure we shall also reign with Him.` (2 Tim. 2: 12) The Body of Christ will then be crowned and seated on thrones in the third heaven. They will cast their crowns before the Lord, signifying that all authority is from Him. `The 24 elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying “You are worthy to receive glory and honour and...
  12. Song 1:1

    . ● Song 1:1 . . Solomon's song of songs. Solomon penned quite a few songs; something like 1,005 (1Kings 4:32). Whether he wrote the music too or just the lyrics; I don't know; maybe. He was a very intelligent guy, but that doesn't necessarily mean he was a musician; nor even that he could carry a tune; but then he didn't have too. Solomon had a number of professional singers on the payroll. (Ecc 2:8) "song of songs" suggests a colloquialism like Sadaam Hussein's "mother of all wars". In...
  13. Ash Wednesday 2020 (feeding Our Soul’s)

    Ash Wednesday 2020 (Feeding our soul’s) We see this power, the force of the Red Dragon… in new and different ways. It exists in the form of materialistic ideologies that tell us it is absurd to think of God; it is absurd to observe God’s commandments: they are a leftover from a time past. Life is only worth living for its own sake. Take everything we can get in this brief moment of life. Consumerism, selfishness, and entertainment alone are worthwhile. —POPE BENEDICT XVI, Homily, August...
  14. Eyeball Log Jamb

    Have you ever noticed how people are quick to pick up on outward examples of 'evil' in the world, yet fail to see that the same potential for those deeds is within all of us? The same because the examples are based on the same foundation principles we all live by, the principles of 'self'. People like to avoid the concept of self to shirk responsibility. Thinking 'self' removes the concept of 'them' and properly places the spotlight upon 'us'. Speck in the eye, the parable. © ...timothyu
  15. Introduction

    . I suppose there are any number of ways to spiritualize Song, and they're probably all very useful. Nothing especially wrong with allegories; I mean, the apostle Paul allegorized an event from the Old Testament to illustrate his point in Gal 4:21-31, so I think it's probably okay. But as for us, I'd much rather we take this little book in the Old Testament prima facie, viz: as a romantic fantasy rather than some sort of mystical writing. Now; according to 2Tim 3:15-17; all scripture is...
  16. Understanding Christ: A Look Through The Book Of Luke - Luke 15

    The purpose of a parable is to conceal spiritual truths. Mark 4:11 tells us this much, "And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables." Mark 4:11 KJV Each time Jesus spoke in parables it was for the purpose of mystifying those that are without and enlightening those that are within. This is why the disciples when they are alone always asking for the meaning of parables that they...
  17. What Jesus Teaches About Panning For Gold

    In some ways, Jesus is building his kingdom in a process similar to gold panning. As you may know, gold panning is the process of scooping up mud and sloshing it around until the useless material washes away and only the gold is remaining. Because gold is a more substantial material than the rocks and mud, it endures until the end of the panning process. In much the same way, our Christian faith provides us with the spiritual weight we need to be considered valuable to God. Without our...
  18. The Heart Of Worship

    Matt Redman The Heart of Worship When the music fades All is stripped away And I simply come Longing just to bring Something that's of worth That will bless your heart I'll bring you more than a song For a song in itself Is not what you have required You search much deeper within Through the way things appear You're looking into my heart I'm coming back to the heart of worship And it's all about you, It's all about you, Jesus I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it When...
  19. Surrendering To Love (“and Jacob Wrestled With God”)

    Surrendering to love (“And Jacob wrestled with God”) For me, the concept of surrender brings to mind some sort of previous struggle. It has a warlike feel to it, something that can be a long arduous exchange. Jacob in his struggle with God was wounded and for the rest of his life, he had a painful limp. When meditating on the Scriptures they can be used analogically in order to derive some benefit from it. Jacob wrestled all night with his concept of God brought to ‘flesh’, it was a...
  20. 11. The Body Of Christ. What Are The Rewards For The Body Of Christ. (part 2)

    CROWNS - Authority. Different crowns, representing authority and responsibility will also be bestowed as additional rewards for specific service and faith. From Greek, `Stephanos` - Victor`s crowns. 1. The Crown of Life. (James 1: 12) `Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been proved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love him.` There are many trials we face as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. 2. The Crown of...
