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

Why would a shy introvert have such a craving to teach?


Not that long ago I got set up for a trap by my pastor. I was taken to lunch under the premise of talking about a study I was to lead, but, his plan had everything to do with challenging … Continue reading

All the people of the land will bury them. Ezekiel 39:11-16

Gabriel Brings an Answer, but to what? Daniel chapter 9 part two.


I can’t believe I did that! What you might ask? I glanced over Daniel nine and found myself wanting to ignore about half of it. Why? Because at first look it seems like it is merely one man’s conversation with … Continue reading
