    None is Righteous: Galilean Blood and the Tower of Siloam

    None is Righteous: Galilean Blood and the Tower of Siloam

    None is Righteous... No, Not OneJesus' 3.5 years of ministry took place at a time of widespread civil unrest. The nation of Israel had been conquered by the Romans and was subject to them. They had to pay heavy taxes, their sense of national dignity was stripped away, and it was only through a great deal of unrest that they had been granted immunity from the requirements to pay religious homage to the emperor as a God. Some of their protests   had borne fruits of religious liberty.... however...They were oppressed, harassed, and often brutally treated by the Roman soldiers who occupied and policed the land. There were protests [some of which turned violent], there were massacres, religious beliefs were often meshed together with political agendas... there were racial tensions, there were cultural tensions, economic tensions, nationalistic tensions. The situation was so bad that within a few short decades Roman would send in an entire army to completely flatten the entire city of Jerusalem.And in the midst of this walked Jesus Christ. Who by doing the will of the Father and walking in the spirit of God, cut a straight and true path right through the middle of it all... preaching repentance and the coming rule of God on earth.Luke 13:1-8A group of people had gathered and were questioning Jesus about current events. Based on the answer He gave they were expecting Him to tell them which side He considered right. They wanted Him to give His opinion: who's cause was righteous, and who's was not? And I think the assumption was, if a person was aligned with the more righteous cause... they were themself more righteous.Jesus said, "what makes you suppose, the people in this group were more righteous in the eyes of God than the other"... and then followed up with "the only path to righteousness is to repent before God".Practice justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God.Request your own free copy of Jesus Christ: The Real Story.

    The Holy Spirit at Work: Divine Aid in Understanding God's Word

    The Holy Spirit at Work: Divine Aid in Understanding God's Word

    The holy spirit is at work in the people of God. The areas of our lives touched by the holy spirit are many. Two broad categories we could apply are INPUT, and OUTPUT:Input: through the active power of God present within us  good things come into our lives such as: conviction, faith, understanding, discernment, courage, endurance and more. Output: though acting upon and using these good things God gives us through the spirit we are able to produce good mental attitudes: love, peace, joy, humility, kindness, gentleness, patience, goodness, kindness, etc. These are examples of "thinking like God", and they form the foundation of life everlasting, the bedrock principles of the kingdom of God, and positive participation in the family of God.These inputs and outputs are workings of the holy spirit. Is there more we can know about the actual "mechanics" of how the spirit of God interacts with our minds and human spirits? Yes, there is. Is there anything we can do to "grease the wheels", so that the good things coming into our lives and the good things produced in our live flow more freely? Yes, there is.Our purpose today is to review the work of holy spirit which is involved in our understanding of God’s word.Get a free copy of this small but helpful book The Power of The Holy SpiritKeep Reading »

    The Resurrection of the Body: As Revealed in the Bible and the Risen Christ

    The Resurrection of the Body: As Revealed in the Bible and the Risen Christ

    The Resurrection BodyThe teaching about the resurrection is the core of the plan of God. You can talk about forgiveness, building Godly character, commandments, prophecy, the nature of God, or any other biblical subject... but none of them matter one whit... unless there is the hope of resurrection. Sadly, but predictably... the truth of the resurrection is clouded with misunderstanding, error, false teaching, disbelief, and every other kind of stumbling block imaginable. Our purpose today is to review the scripture record concerning the nature of the resurrection body and see how that understanding affects our expectation and preparation for resurrection. Request your own copy of Who Is God? . In this small but important mini-book you'll learn more about God's nature as described in the bible. Its a wonderful study tool you can have completely free of charge.Keep Reading »
