Ouxano Thumbnail

[display_podcast] In 1 Samuel 11, we see Saul being demonstrated publicly as Israel’s king by defeating the Ammonites, and then in chapter 12, Samuel offers his farewell address to the people of Israel - thus the end of the era of the judges in Israel’s history.  Yet, while he no longer stands as a judge over God’s people, he still remains a prophet, speaking on behalf of the Lord. So, as we pick up the story in chapter 13, we see Saul beginning to set up his political and military strong … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] We are blessed and honored to have one of my favorite people on the planet join our show:  Pastor Tommy Nelson of Denton Bible Church in Denton, TX (DentonBible.org).  Anyone familiar with my own story is familiar with Tommy.  The tapes that were given to me regarding the Book of Ecclesiastes that God used to pull me to His kingdom were from Tommy’s ministry.

Meeting People Head On with Ray Schmautz 6: Eternal Assurance

Meeting People Head On Thumbnail

Last time, I shared what the Bible says about how to become a Christian. But, how can we be assured that if we put our faith in Jesus Christ to be the Savior of the world, that He personally came and died for you to pay your penalty of death for your sin, so that you could have His righteousness – the Bible clearly says that you could be assured that if you were to die today, you would have eternal life and be with God forever. And that’s an assurance that’s worth more than all the money in … [Read more...]

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] I think I follow a bit of a God pattern.  Here’s what it looks like: I work myself up into a tizzy.  This is usually very melodramatic as no one has died, but rather plans – my plans – have changed. I freak out in my tizzy.  This usually happens at a speed of 0-60 and sends me into stern-worded rants, ugly crying, and the mass consumption of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream along with a dozen cookies. I realize God is supposed to be some sort of Mastermind, so I decide to put my wh … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] In 1 Samuel 8, we transition to the Israeli people’s request for a human king:As Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons to be judges over Israel. 2 Joel and Abijah, his oldest sons, held court in Beersheba. 3 But they were not like their father, for they were greedy for money. They accepted bribes and perverted justice. Now, remember that we discussed this subtheme throughout Samuel of father/son relationships and leadership.  Several examples are given, including this one … [Read more...]

This will certainly be true in this PODCAST, as we discuss together one of Jesus’ most remarkable statements.Matthew 11:20-24 (NKJV)20 Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent: 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin!
