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 […]

THE FOUR CHARIOTS OF THE APOCALYPSE

THE FOUR CHARIOTS of the APOCALYPSE (Zechariah 6:1-8) This week we plan to examine the 8th and last vision in the series of visions given to Zechariah on the night of February 15, 520 BC. You can read for yourself the vision of the Four Chariots in Zechariah 6:1-8. We plan to follow the same […]

THE END-TIME BABYLONIAN RENAISSANCE

Zechariah was in Jerusalem when he received the vision of the Woman in a Basket being Deported from Jeruslem to Shinar on the night of February 15, 520 BC. The temple rebuild project was well underway and eventually completed in 516 BC. The visions and prophecies of Zechariah map out the road of the Messiah […]

THE LITTLE WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A 5-GALLON BUCKET

It is about 4:20 AM on Monday morning. I have begun my study of the next vision reported in Zechariah 5:5-11. The vision of the little woman in the 5-gallon bucket/basket is indeed strange and puzzling. Her name is wickedness. The lid that covers the bucket/basket was made of heavy lead. Two women with Stork […]

DO PEOPLE REALLY WANT MORE BIBLE?

Really? People want more Bible than community, music, children and youth programs, and service-ministry-outreach opportunities? the Gallup survey mentioned in the attached post.

I don’t believe it….

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI SNOW DAY

Where I live in south Mississippi, a snow day comes about once every five years. We had one last week, a couple of inches, not much. However, even a little snow can pretty much shut down the town. We try not to drive when it is snowing, but that doesn’t keep us from going outside and […]

THE OLD MAN AND THE MANURE PILE

Fresh horse manure right out of the ‘tube’ stinks pretty bad. However, once the manure has aged a bit, it stinks less. After a while, when nicely composted, it will even acquire a nice earthy smell that hints of the new life and vitality of the soil. For us old guys, regrets linger, like manure […]

THE GREAT HORSE MANURE STANK OF 2017

Well, there was snow here last week, horse manure this week. The manure pile is the one without the shovel, in case you were wondering 😉 I feel a sermon coming…. SNOW DAY! Where I live in south Mississippi, a snow day comes about once every five years. We had one last week, a couple of […]
