A New Ewe

Moses… was so self-absorbed he couldn’t see what he had just witnessed. was afraid of being dismissed. doubted God’s power where he was weak. was fine with the change, as long as someone else did it. Change… is vanity if not done in covenant with God. brought about by God’s mighty hand is tough change. The best change was transformational change that took place on the cross. comes from God.  The one who never changes! Be all in with God,…

The Golden Child

David’s appearance was as a shepherd David’s appearance was as a servant David’s appearance was selfish David’s appearance was senseless 1 Samuel 171 Samuel 16:1-7 But God didn’t look at his appearance.  God looked on David’s heart!

The Black Sheep

God used Judah’s bad heart for good. (Gen. 37:26) God used an unrighteous act to transform Judah’s heart. (Gen. 38:26) Judah reveals his heart when he offers his life to save two. (Gen. 44:33-34) Judah’s reward is a blessing of all blessings. (Gen. 49:8-12) The black sheep of the family is a reminder that we all have sinned.  Don’t give up on him/her just like God didn’t give up on you.

(Acts 2:45)  

One Conclusion

Will we have a free will in Heaven? Does Revelation 21:1 mean there will be no rain in Heaven (Sea is gone)? Who are the Kings of Earth in Revelation 21:24? If God knew who we were before we were made does that mean He knew Adam and Eve would sin? Can I have clarification on the beasts in chapter 13 and the mark of the beast? Are we close to the end due to the fact that most of…

One Home

Heaven is… Physical (Revelation 21:9-14) Perfect (Revelation 21:1-2) God with us (Revelation 21:3) The curse brought division between… God and man (Genesis 3:20-24) Man and man (Genesis 3:16) Man and nature (Genesis 3:17-19) The final victory reconciled… God and man (Revelation 21:5-8) Man and man (Revelation 21:4) Man and nature Revelation 22:1-2) Understanding the next life will motivate us to prepare and share while in this life.  

One Victory

With deception Satan destroys (Revelation 16:13-16) With truth Jesus destroys (Revelation 19:11-21) With power God reigns victorious (Revelation 16:17-21; 19:1-2) With righteous deeds the church is prepared (Revelation 19:6-9) Any plan that makes life about us is the deceptive voice of Satan.  When we use the sword of truth to guide our life, we will be a prepared, righteous bride for the coming of the lamb.
