BE FAITH-FOUR IN 2018, 31 JAN 2018

The Wednesday BE FAITH-FOUR in 2018 Reading. A timely passage with Tax Season upon us and to follow the President’s State of the Union address. Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the […]

THE HERMENEUTIC CONTRIBUTION OF JOHN NELSON DARBY

John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) is considered the father of modern Dispensationalism. Although Dispensationalism preceded Darby, Darby is credited with bringing dispensational ideas to the laity and common man. Through his association with Plymouth Brethren congregations, Darby popularized the dispensational approach to reading the Scriptures forward as an unfolding Revelation. THE FORWARD READING HERMENEUTIC OF DARBY […]

THE FOUR-CHARIOT RECONNAISSANCE TEAM (ZECHARIAH 6:1-8)

The date was February 15, 520 BC. The people had become disillusioned in the work of rebuilding the temple.

Zechariah is one of the most incredible books of the Bible!

I love and value the precious time I have had this week in the study, thinking, and writing about the vision of the FOUR CHARIOTS in Zechariah 6:1-8.

Living the Eternal Word. It Matters.

Oh, that God would raise up an army of Christians, old and young alike, that are truly passionate about what God has said in the Bible, willing to search out the eternal truths of God’s Word and let that Word govern their lives for His honor and glory! The grass withers, the flower fades, but […]

MISSION IMPROBABLE

Well, I made a mistake. The four chariots in Zechariah 6:1-8 have very little to do with an apocalypse (see the previous post). The vision is not about an apocalyptic end-time war, but security in times of vulnerability, when the world around us has gone scary uncertain. This is the message from God that Zechariah […]

HOW TO BE RICH, TRUELY RICH

True heart contentment is possible. It begins with a decision to live within the boundaries of God’s care and provision, no matter how meager our income may seem, and forgo the ‘more is better’ mindset. Aiming for less will get you more when anchored in gratitude to God and service to others. Wealth is not […]
