With the travelers corpses still lying on the ground. Ezekiel 39:14-16


As I began to take on this section, I was reminded how far too many times that Bible teachings, in general, have been fraught with tradition, a lack of logic, and bereft of truth. This is what I grew up … Continue reading

I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. Ezekiel 39:7 -13


God, angry with Gog, the leader of Magog, puts a hook in his jaw and draws him to the hills of Israel and kills, not only him but 5/6th of those who have allied themselves with this person. I feel … Continue reading

In his time he will be revealed. 2Thessalonians 2:5-8


I started writing this blog in 2014. I am writing this because I woke up one morning, years ago, and began listening to the late J. Vernon McGee talking on the radio about this very passage. If I heard him … Continue reading

A study/commentary on 2 Thessalonians 2: 1-4


I primarily use the NASB, but occasionally I find it deficient; I will insert other translations if they can clarify the context. Those translations will be duly noted. Chapter one was an appropriate greeting, but chapter two stands alone and … Continue reading

On the subject of vengeance.


Several weeks ago the Monday morning study leader announced that the following week we would be starting a study on vengeance. To show that the carnal side of me still exists, I wrote this on my notepad, Coming up next … Continue reading

But before faith came. Galatians 3:23


Sorry, if this trip through Galatians is becoming tedious, but imagine that moment when a new reader drops in and has no idea of what we are talking. It happens. We are working our way through Paul’s letter to the … Continue reading

Can I apply the principles learned here, even if I am not a Jew. Galatians 3:22


Sometimes, like today, I am battling with insecurities and wondering why I think anyone needs another commentary. But maybe, you’re just like me and find yourself overwhelmed by the high theology of some; the convoluted approach of others, and the … Continue reading

With the concept of a mediator in place, we continue. Galatians 3:20-21


When we last saw our hero Paul – I am just kidding because it has been weeks since I stepped away from my commentary on Galatians. Like most of Paul’s letters, this letter to the followers in Galatia is an … Continue reading

This opening line is one that gives me grief. Galatians 3:1-3


In many of my posts I show you a bit of me; in other words, I make it personal, and then hopefully applicable. I am going to try to integrate myself into this one as well, but I am going … Continue reading
