What if Your Candidate Loses?

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. – Proverbs 14:34 Something I have heard many election seasons since the mid 90 ’s If “we” don ’t win this upcoming election, the nation will be destroyed. Read carefully again Proverbs 14:34. We live in a nation that is not above reproach. Yet, for many, this nation is still recognized as the greatest nation with the most freedom to worship God than any other nation on earth.…

“Contending for the Faith”

The book of Jude is addressed to Christians who needed to wake up to fight against some ungodly people with ungodly ideas among them (Jude 3 -4, 12, 16, 19). The key statement of Jude exhorts these endangered Christians to, “Contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). “Contenders” are interested in building up other Christians (20) “…building yourselves up on your most holy faith…” Those who would contend earnestly for the…

How to be a Go-SHEN Christian

Goshen is the name of a few places in scripture. The most well -known is the land the Israelites dwelt in during their time in Egypt (Gen. 47:1 -6). Several blessings came by being in the land of Goshen. Consider three: Protection First, Goshen became an initial line of defense in keeping the Israelites separated from Egypt ’s pagan culture (Gen. 46:33). To the Egyptian, shepherds were an abomination. Ironically it was not the Israelites whose culture was an abomination,…

What Happens to Our Bodies When We Die?

Have you ever been to the zoo and seen all the animals like the tigers, lions, alligators, rhinos, bears, and many others? Man’s body is no greater than the body of a beast; they are both mortal. The only difference between them and us is we have an immortal soul which lives for eternity. We have to choose how we live for the destination of our soul going to Heaven or Hell for eternity. Solomon teaches on this very subject…

“Friends” in High Places

The temple was finally built! Worshiping God on the “high places” was intended to cease (cf. 1st Kings 3:1 -4). In 1st Kings 8, the ark of the covenant of the Lord is brought in, and the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord (1 -11). It was a time of immense celebration and joy for Israel, who had been waiting on this promise from God since the days of Moses (Deut. 12:1 -14). This was a…

Why I Love Camp

Lord willing, we ’ll be on our way Sunday morning to this year ’s session of Camp Bandina. I love going to a Christian camp. I don’t love it because the counselors there are perfect, but because they ’re servants of the Perfect One. As counselors, we all bring our faults and flaws right along with us, but we get a chance to serve God by teaching His perfect love and His perfect ways to the campers. I don’t love…
