The children of Israel as a whole, as the story is told in our Old Testament, seemed to be bad times followers of God only. If you read through the period of the Judges, when they were governed by their judges before they had a king, you will see a pattern of them turning to God when times were bad and forgetting God when He blessed them, so that He in turn punished them again until they cried out to Him again. The pattern repeated itself over and over throughout all periods of their history, but can be clearly seen in the period of the Judges. Continue reading

Death

download (23)

Do you feel you are close to death at this moment. If you do, don’t feel alone because in fact all of us, at any point in time, are close to death.

I have never personally had the honor of marriage, but still find it a very important and relevant topic as it is an institution designed by God for the preservation of the family. There is no other design that man could come up with that can take the place of marriage and it is quite a sinful and godless state that we find ourselves living in modern society. The pattern of marriage is not being followed as divorce rates climb and many young couples would prefer to live together instead of making the commitment to one another that a long term marriage requires.

If you love me…

obedience1

Jesus said in John 14:15: “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” The New Testament its original Greek used two different words that are translated love in our English bibles. The first is agapaho  which is a higher love in a moral sense, such as we feel for God. The second is phileo, which is to have an affection for in the more personal sense or the love that we might have for the fellow human beings in our life (brotherly love). In this passage the higher form of the word is used, denoting that Jesus wants us to love Him in the higher sense that we love God in that we will revere and worship Him as well as keep His commandments.
