    Searching the Scriptures #42: Blood & Meats

    Searching the Scriptures #42: Blood & Meats

    After Noah and his sons departed the ark, God Most High established a covenant with them, and with all their descendants. That covenant involved two dietary commands:


    Don't consume blood, because the life is in the blood.
    Feel free to eat any remeś (רֶמֶשׂ) thing that lives, in addition to plants.

    The first part is easy enough to understand, but the second part generates confusion. What is the meaning of the Hebrew word remeś? Does it encompass fish and fowl? Does it exclude or include unclean animals? These questions lead us into an analysis of Acts chapters 10 and 15.

    Searching the Scriptures #41: Profitable Ignorance

    Searching the Scriptures #41: Profitable Ignorance

    As we continue studying through Genesis and Daniel, we find ourselves emphasizing the fact that we don't have the mystery all figured out. We're gathering clues to help us understand end-times prophecies, but we haven't even assembled all the clues yet, much less connected them perfectly to construct an airtight narrative.

    Sometimes it can be difficult to not be dogmatic. Pride—that most universal of sins—leads us to convince ourselves that we know more than we really do. That attitude stunts further development, because growing in knowledge of the truth requires input from our brothers and sisters, with their unique perspectives and revelations.

    Searching the Scriptures #40: Forty Days of Fire and Flood

    Searching the Scriptures #40: Forty Days of Fire and Flood

    We didn't plan it this way, but our fortieth episode happens to largely deal with the forty days of wrath for the wicked and celebration for the saints. I'm going to chalk this nice synchronicity up to Providence.

    The episode begins with an explanation of chiastic, or mirror, structure found through the Scriptures, and likely built into the entirety of redemptive history. From there, it moves into discussion of the forty days: why it keeps popping up throughout the Bible, and why would we should expect one or two 40-day periods of paradigm shifts once we reach the Day of the Lord.

    Searching the Scriptures #39: Seven Days or Seven Years?

    Searching the Scriptures #39: Seven Days or Seven Years?

    We begin to unpack the prophetic symbolism found within the Flood narrative. Along the way, we consider whether or not the seven days of Noah's separation from the world could equate to seven years of protection for end-times believers.

    Searching the Scriptures #38: The Corruption of All Flesh

    Searching the Scriptures #38: The Corruption of All Flesh

     "And God created... every living creature... after his kind: and God saw that it was good" (Gen. 1:21). Over and over again in the Book of Genesis, Moses records that God created creatures in distinct categories called "kinds," and that mankind, being created in the image of God, was set apart from all other kinds. After each bout of creation, we read that God looked up his work with pleasure, considering it good. Everything was made just the way it should be, and there was no need to improve on or reconfigure any living thing. Is it any wonder, then, that Satan would incite people to destroy the God-ordained distinctions between kinds by mixing what was not intended to be mixed? Noah lived in the first Hybrid Age, and his world was judged by deluge; we've now entered the second Hybrid Age, and the world will soon be judged by malestrom.

    Searching the Scriptures #37: Old vs New Covenant

    Searching the Scriptures #37: Old vs New Covenant

    What really is the difference between the Mosaic (Old) and Messianic (New) covenants? Is the New Covenant fully in effect now? How does the Law factor in? I cut through all the confusion with an episode-long Q&A about law and covenants.

    Here's the link to my Artify Me! shop, mentioned in the opening segment. It's a photo-to-portrait service that's high quality yet reasonably priced. Check it out!

Eschatology Tackler

I've studied prophetic end-times perspectives for quite a few years now, yet I kept getting discouraged because of the many conflicting & non-harmonizing views. The Watchman has emphasized the importance of approaching the scriptures from a Hebraic & moedim perspective--something I've started to realize just a couple years ago myself. After having thrown out the pre- & mid- rapture theory long ago, his refreshing Hebraic case for it happening before all is said and done, is the most compelling I'd ever heard. It's relieving how he doesn't limit the inspired scriptures to the arbitrary Protestant canon of 66 books, like so many other prophecy buffs do.
Also, 2 Baruch is a book I had to go through again because of the incredible well-researched, multi-episode walkthrough series of it that he has done. I own his book & I intend on reading it asap. I know it will provide necessary & edifying clarity to the coming eschatological timeline--which is why I'm already looking forward to volume two of the book series.

The Truth IS Out There!!

I am excited and also blown away at how Alexander Lawrence opens up the scriptures. His knowledge of the Scriptures is amazing. God has truly blessed him, and thankfully he now blesses us -- me, at least!! Thank you!! for your insights and wisdom, and for sharing these with us. I'm also glad to find out he's a prepper and encourages us all to prepare, which I already embrace.

Rocking Truth!!!!

I really appreciate the insight Watchman Alexander shares. Haven’t missed a podcast yet! It’s great to know there’s someone like him that graciously challenges our thinking and encourage us to really study the Bible instead of just routinely surface reading such a precious book that’s filled with rich insight on the plans and the heart of God, and to make us wise as serpent and gentle as doves. Watchman Alexander makes it plan to understand. I also enjoy the quick session Amanda shares in the podcast. Helps us to reflect on where our hearts should be for God, for others and for ourselves. It’s good to understand how to express the love of Yeshua the Messiah. Thanks for taking the time to research and share what God has taught the both of you!
