Prophecy Watch: The Merging of Countries into Economic Communities From the Scriptures, it is apparent that the economies of the entire earth dúring the time of the Antichrist will be unified. Apparently, everyone (small and great, rich and poor, free and slave) will have to identify with the Antichrist and his regime. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make… Read more

The Bed is a Picture of Intimacy Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4 NKJV) The word bed here is used in the New Testament a total of four times. Two times in Romans, once in Luke and once in Hebrews. In Romans 9:10, it says this: And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac The word describes the result… Read more

The Influence of Language and Culture In those days I also saw Jews who had married women of Ashdod, Ammon, and Moab. And half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod, and could not speak the language of Judah, but spoke according to the language of one or the other people. So I contended with them and cursed them, struck some of them and pulled out their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, “You shall not give… Read more

The Danger of a Foreign Spiritual Influence in Intermarriage Therefore take careful heed to yourselves, that you love the LORD your God. Or else, if indeed you do go back, and cling to the remnant of these nations–these that remain among you–and make marriages with them, and go in to them and they to you, know for certain that the LORD your God will no longer drive out these nations from before you. But they shall be snares and traps… Read more

Marital Love is Not Your Usual Yada Yada Have you seen these statements when you download something from Google? It will say something like: “Please read, this is not your usual yada yada.” Yada is the Hebrew word for knowledge, or in the basic verb form – to know. This verb has many meanings in the Old Testament. You can know a thing, a place, a person. You can say you are acquainted with a person, in which you know…. Read more

The Bite and Sting of Alcohol Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has contentions? Who has complaints? Who has wounds without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who linger long at the wine, Those who go in search of mixed wine. Do not look on the wine when it is red, When it sparkles in the cup, When it swirls around smoothly; At the last it bites like a serpent, And stings like a viper. Your eyes will… Read more

Responsible Love and Anger My dear brothers and sisters, be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Your anger can never make things right in God’s sight. (James 1:19-20 NLT) The Bible encourages me to be “slow to be angry.” Why does it say this in this fashion? The reason is because anger is a reaction, not a response. Of course, every reaction is a response, but some reactions are not good responses. When you get… Read more

Is Gender an Option? “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the LORD your God. (Deuteronomy 22:5 NKJV) I watched a “Larry King Live” show last week (and it came again Sunday as a repeat)on CNN on the theme trans genders. There is a current movie out called “Transamerica” about a man who tries to become a woman…. Read more

Responsible Love Requires Costly Grace What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even… Read more

Temptation is Being Tricked to be Irresponsible And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. (Matthew 6:13 NKJV) Dietrich Bonhöffer once said: Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility. Every behavior requires a choice. Every choice is based on a belief. To properly respond (or to make the right choice in a situation) requires knowing what is… Read more
