Prophecy Watch: News Reports of Strange Trumpet Sounds in the Sky

I’ve read blogs, seen videos, and heard audio from people around the world talking about these crazy horn-like sounds coming from the sky.  The sound is described as deafening and lasts for several minutes.  I’ve not touched on this in the past because most readers would blow it off as non-sense but now that wellContinue reading “Prophecy Watch: News Reports of Strange Trumpet Sounds in the Sky”

Blogging Through Song: Life After Death & Taxes

A dear friend of mine named Vernon Bauer, a retired missionary to Colombia and a masterful theologian, preached a sermon once on the benefit of music in our daily Christian walk.  Needless to say, I was intrigued.  The point that he made was to plant a song in your mind to call upon when temptationContinue reading “Blogging Through Song: Life After Death & Taxes”

According to the USGS, a magnitude 7.3 has struck Nepal just 2 weeks after the earthquake that killed 8,000+ people on April 25.  BBC reports 4 people have been killed in this earthquake, but that number may rise as aftershocks hit and more victims are discovered.  Please pray for the people of Nepal as theyContinue reading “HEADLINE: Another Major Earthquake Strikes Nepal”

Desiring God: Parenting in the Valley of Dry Bones

“They said they were sorry.  They picked up their toys with force and temper.  They mouthed ‘yes, sir.’  Though you’ve taught them the form of what to feel, do, and say, you recognize in these moments how helpless you are to change their hearts.  This is when we need the same thing Ezekiel did thatContinue reading “Desiring God: Parenting in the Valley of Dry Bones”

Bearer of the Remnant

Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb; even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you.  I have made, and I will bear; I will carryContinue reading “Bearer of the Remnant”

Video Post: Warnings from a Modern Day Prophet

As Christians, we use the term prophet cautiously because of how many false prophets there are and have been.  Prophecy is not necessarily about predicting the future, but about speaking from God to national leaders and to the people of the nations.  In my opinion, if you have to label yourself a prophet then youContinue reading “Video Post: Warnings from a Modern Day Prophet”

An Introduction to Bible Prophecy

Prophecy has been something that has captivated mankind for centuries.  It’s a mystery that is found in the lore of civilizations around the world, often times as related to a religion (though not always).  Prophecy, as it’s typically understood, can be categorized as a predictive forecast of an event or series thereof.  That, then, begsContinue reading “An Introduction to Bible Prophecy”

Yom Hashoah, or Jesus, Joseph & The Holocaust

Sundown marks a very important day for not just Israel, but for all Jews around the world.  The day is Yom Hashoah, known in English as Holocaust Remembrance Day.  It commemorates the systematic extermination of Europe’s Jewish population by Nazi Germany during World War II. Shoah, Not Holocaust For the sake of you, the reader,Continue reading “Yom Hashoah, or Jesus, Joseph & The Holocaust”

Why Does God Allow Evil?

This question is timeless.  It’s one that we’ve all heard many times, and it’s one that will continue to be asked until Jesus returns and puts an end to it.  But how do we, as Christians answer this question?  Rather than offering a simple answer, I want to break down the question itself and goContinue reading “Why Does God Allow Evil?”

A New Lesson from the Feeding of the 5,000

Today at church the pastor’s sermon focused on the miracle of the feeding of the 5,000.  It was a good sermon, and I am always moved by his passion for preaching the Word of God but it wasn’t his points that jumped out at me.  It wasn’t the passion with which he spoke, and itContinue reading “A New Lesson from the Feeding of the 5,000”
