A Study on Zephaniah. Part 1, an introduction.


I will tell you what motivated this study. I went to a “Bible Study” that to some degree was promoted by a Southern California Christian radio host. I think the man is sincere and I think the work God has … Continue reading

It is odd how someone else’s words suddenly validate an idea.


I previously posted a blog entitled, There are some odd passages in Ezekiel 39, where I spoke of the fire as potentially a nuclear war. In that blog, I pointed out some problems with that idea. However, since I posted … Continue reading

What about Jacob? Or, can a man find healing in a woman? Part two.


This entire blog was spawned from a sermon entitled, What about Jacob? Or, can a man find healing in a woman? To make this brief, I did not understand, nor was I able to track with what the pastor said, … Continue reading

Dispelling some Myths – Jonah. Chapter four.


When we last saw Jonah, he had walked through the town of Nineveh, a three-day journey, as he proclaimed “forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” The result of God’s proclamation, the entire town, and the Assyrian king cover themselves … Continue reading

David and Goliath – Dispelling some myths.


We all have versions of the David and Goliath story in our heads. In our men’s group, we are reading Max Lucado’s book Overcoming your Giants. In the first chapter the author talks in odd descriptives about a young David, … Continue reading

An extremely ludicrous example. Gal 2:19-21


Although I might have used other translations as I wrote about Paul’s transition out of legalism into the grace of God we find in Christ; the CJB seems to convey what I perceive Paul is saying, the best. Galatians 2:18-19 … Continue reading

It is not according to man. Galatians 1:11

Behold it’s coming. Ezekiel 39:7-10.


I closed the last study of Ezekiel 39 ending on verse 6. Why then bring it into this continuation of chapter 39? Because it helps to establish context. Ezekiel 39:5-7 NASB “You will fall on the open field; for it … Continue reading
