Rahab – a character study. Part of the Dispelling myths series. Chapter one.


I am not so sure there are myths involved, as it is more a case of suppositions. My interest in Rahab started long ago, as I heard the stories, but rarely ever read the story for myself. If you follow my … Continue reading

Lightening, voices, and thunder – edited part 1. Revelation 11:18 through.


I believe what we see here in Revelation 11:18 is the end of all things, but on what do I base that assessment? “And the nations were enraged, and Your wrath came, and the time came for the dead to … Continue reading
