Tamar, The 1st Levirate Marriage

In the gospels of Mark 12:18-27, Matthew 22:23-34 and Luke 20:27-40 the Sadducees approach Jesus with an unusual question considering they didn't believe in life after death. The Sadducees refused to go beyond the written Torah (first five books of the Bible). Unlike the Pharisees they denied the immortality of the soul, bodily resurrection after … Continue reading Tamar, The 1st Levirate Marriage

Prayer vs Worry, Be Careful

To say our country is in uncharted territory would be a huge understatement. Covid-19 is morphing into new strains with unknown implications. A new administration is in the white house that half of the country didn't vote for. That's not unusual in an election but this is, Military.com - Guard officials said Thursday that approximately … Continue reading Prayer vs Worry, Be Careful

1Tim. 2:1-3 Pray For All Men

Since before the Nov. 3rd presidential election I have been praying that "God's Will" would be done in it and that I would acknowledge the outcome as His Will. Many times and ways scripture tells us that God places authorities over people according to their actions in following His ways or not. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=god%20gives%20people%20the%20leaders%20they%20deserve&ko=-1&ia=web The Book … Continue reading 1Tim. 2:1-3 Pray For All Men

H2021″The Adulteress Looking Down On Her Prostitute Sister”

I thought about writing this post in December but the title that I wanted to give it stopped me several times. In my mind the title should have been "The Adulteress Looking Down On Her Prostitute Sister" and for that reason I didn't write it. It seemed vulgar to me. Then after New Years I … Continue reading H2021″The Adulteress Looking Down On Her Prostitute Sister”

Sun-diving Comet, CME,6.0EQ, Solar Eclipse, & “7”

This is a follow up to the things I wrote about in my last post, https://intheword.blog/2020/12/05/a-solar-eclipse-jonah-nahum/ "Solar Eclipses, Jonah, Nahum & America?" On Dec. 14th 2020 I anticipated that maybe some other events might occur to give emphasis to the uniqueness and oddity of events occurring on this given date. Early in the day while … Continue reading Sun-diving Comet, CME,6.0EQ, Solar Eclipse, & “7”

Multitudes, Multitudes, In The Valley of Decision!

Day before yesterday while out on a drive with my wife we were discussing how divided our nation is over the outcome of the presidential election. We both agreed that if it weren't for so many claims of cheating in such blatant ways the idea our candidate honestly losing would be more acceptable. But that's … Continue reading Multitudes, Multitudes, In The Valley of Decision!

Could God Use A Fallen Person Like Donald Trump

The last almost 4 years with Donald Trump as president has been quite a ride. Sometimes as with the 1st presidential debate not a very appealing one but certainly not boring either. Before the 2016 election I questioned in my heart if God would use a man with the moral flaws that Donald Trump clearly … Continue reading Could God Use A Fallen Person Like Donald Trump

Facing Hurricane Delta, Trusting Jesus

8am The Blue Dot is my home. Today, for the 2nd time this year a substantial hurricane will move across the parish of our home within 40 miles or so. That's relatively close to being a direct hit but without the full impact. It's also close enough to a direct hit that until it has … Continue reading Facing Hurricane Delta, Trusting Jesus

Two Had To Die

When reading the Bible I've learned to pay attention to the "side notes," those added comments that seem as though they are only fluff, something inconsequential. Today's MyDailyBible app devotional reading is a perfect example of that and is where the title of this blog post comes from. DailyPlan : one-year-tract : 2020-09-15 #Bible https://www.mydailybible.org/dp/esv/one-year-tract/2020-09-15.htmContinue reading Two Had To Die
