Romans 1:1. Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus.


With the understanding that Jesus is God, I began to study the gospels where the actions and words of Jesus were laid out before me. If my perception was correct, and Jesus was God, then I was seeing God in action. I could not worry about the “law” with all its regulations; I merely observed the life of Jesus. Continue reading

A heavily modified version of an old post on Hebrews 5:11. It’s hard for you to learn.


I, for the longest time, thought of myself as a slow learner. It turns out that I am more of a visual learner, for once I get the imagery in my head, that scriptural scene usually stays with me forever. So, when it comes to my experiences in comprehending the Bible, the understanding has come through repetition and a great deal of writing. The writing has been my opportunity to ask God my questions, no matter how awkward or embarrassing, and put forth my heartfelt challenges. Continue reading

I am regularly challenged by the horrendous lack of understanding in the church body.


The problem with setting the passage aside without understanding, is that Jesus, fulfilled all that He said, and returned to the Father.

The law, therefore, had no negative impact on the fulfillment of the promised gift of the Holy Spirit. Continue reading

Matthew 10:28, Him who able to kill the soul and the body.


When talking about the time period in which tribulations will exceed human reason, you are talking about the time of God’s wrath and judgment. Jesus, on the other hand, said tribulations, and that includes deadly events, would be a way of life. We here in America have yet to grasp the horrors of great tribulation, but we will.

As they used to say on Monty Python, and now for something completely different.
