Biblical Healing (5): The Works of God Revealed

“Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must workContinue reading “Biblical Healing (5): The Works of God Revealed”

Why “Run, Hide, Fight” Can Get You Killed

Occassionally we hear of a killer shooter. The standard immediate action phrase is “run, hide, fight.” It’s a place to start, maybe, but statistically it doesn’t appear to work. For instance the Columbine school shooting: many children ran and hid, but they hid under there desks. They became easy targets. What we need to identifyContinue reading “Why “Run, Hide, Fight” Can Get You Killed”

Biblical Healing (4): Pauls Thorn

There are some doctrines so steeped in tradition that seeing it any other way takes a concerted effort. Usually most won’t ever change a tradition and others will only change when there’s no where else to turn. I’m speaking primarily on healing, but it goes for any teaching. Only when life or death hangs inContinue reading “Biblical Healing (4): Pauls Thorn”

Biblical Healing: (3) Receiving

Perhaps the greatest question concerning the promises of God is, “How do we get the promises working in our lives?” It should be obvious to anyone who’s been walking with God more than a few months that nothing is automatic. We must keep in mind who’s involved in receiving from God: God and the receiver.Continue reading “Biblical Healing: (3) Receiving”

What About B.O.?

“Bugging out” (BO) is a term many more are becoming familiar with as our country becomes more divided. I think of the scripture “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation” (Matthew 12:25). There’s just no way that two different polarized ideologies can cohabit with one another. People will either “hate the one andContinue reading “What About B.O.?”

I’m Confused! What Did You Say The Day Of Christ Was?

We need to be careful that we don’t take a scripture out of context, or add a meaning to it that can’t be verified by other scriptures: “By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established” (Matthew 18:16). When we do, we’re trying to make the Bible fit our doctrine. ThisContinue reading “I’m Confused! What Did You Say The Day Of Christ Was?”

The Divine Order of the End Times

God has a divine order for the return of Jesus. He has given us explicit signs to look for before Jesus will come. It’s not as complicated or as confusing as often presented. Yet, with all that the Bible says about the end times, many can’t defend their position why they believe what they believe.Continue reading “The Divine Order of the End Times”

Eat The Hay And Spit Out The Sticks

“Wisdom shouts in the streets. She cries out in the public square. She calls to the crowds along the main street, to those gathered in front of the city gate: ‘How long, you simpletons, will you insist on being simpleminded? How long will you mockers relish your mocking? How long will you fools hate knowledge?Continue reading “Eat The Hay And Spit Out The Sticks”

Biblical Healing: (2) Healing And The Atonement

In our “Introduction to Healing,” we asked if healing was in the atonement. Today, we want to explore that question. If Jesus paid for our healing in the atonement, then we have a legal right to it, and He has a legal right to perform it. It also means that it is God’s will forContinue reading “Biblical Healing: (2) Healing And The Atonement”

The Thief And Paradise

“Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, ‘If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.’ But the other, answering rebuked him, saying, ‘Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but thisContinue reading “The Thief And Paradise”
