"unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3 Now we turn to seek the Messiah in the Latter Prophets which include Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and the 12 minor prophets.

I didn't know this, but the Hebrews divided their scripture into three categories: Torah (Law), Nevi'im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings). While that might not be new to you, what books are included in which category probably are. Torah: Moses five … Continue reading 2020-09-23 What’s a Nevi’im?
"...for he wrote of me." John 5:46 It's been very interesting to study the writings of the Messiah in the Old Testament. As I've said many times, the bible is Jesus' autobiography.

"The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom," Proverbs 4:7 A couple days ago I wrote about how all the colors of nature match and how all the sounds of nature are harmonious.

"Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation." Psalm 146:3 I read an article from USA Today (link below) that warned people not to fall for "fringe" right-wing theories out there. Why? Because they have been debunked. Or so the article claims.

“that you may know you have eternal life.”1 John 5:13 In all my wrangling with Catholic doctrine of late, it may seem as if the main point has been lost. Indeed, it hasn’t; however, it is certainly important to step back now and then and look at the entire landscape. Let’s do a bit of … Continue reading 2020-09-15 Sing To The Lord!
“He was despised and rejected by men;”Isaiah 53:3 The last prophecy written in Matthew 2 is also very interesting. Let’s take a look: Matthew 2:23 And he went and lived in a city called Nazareth, so that what was spoken by the prophets might be fulfilled, that he would be called a Nazarene. This seems … Continue reading 2020-09-14 Come And See!
