The Law is Good. 1 Timothy 1:1 – 11.


Paul, as we have come to recognize, opens with a greeting, however, according to J.Vernon McGee, this greeting is different. Here is an example of one of Paul’s typical greetings. Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but … Continue reading

Paul’s plan to visit the church in Rome. Romans 15:22-33


As we close out chapter 15, I feel I need to recap verses 20, 21. My ambition has always been to preach the Good News where the name of Christ has never been heard, rather than where a church has … Continue reading

Live in such a way … Romans 14:13-23.


Do Not Cause Another to Stumble Paul opens Romans 14 by talking about those who don’t believe what you believe and, therefore, can’t eat what you eat. In some translations, Paul is said to call this a weaker faith. In … Continue reading

Since we have been made right. Romans 5:1-4.

Seals, trumpets, and bowls. An attempt to understand what is about to happen as God’s wrath gets poured out.


I meant to make a chronological outline to describe the judgments of God that begin in Revelation 6. This is what you get. I am one of those people who always wanted to understand end times events (Eschatology), but the … Continue reading

Micah 5:6, they never overcame the nations they were told to.


Hopefully, you got the point and can see that the potentialities exist for a Turkish ally to turn against them, even if they themselves are Muslims. If you have an understanding of Islam, then you know there are many sects within the ideology, and none of them get along. Continue reading
