The Foolishness of God Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men… 1 Corinthians 1:25 (NASB) This sounds like a strange paradox at first reading: God in His foolishness is wiser than men. Or to put it another way – Even when God is stupid, it is still better than when man is at his smartest. God’s dumbest answer to a problem is better than the collective wisdom of the smartest men. This concept goes against many common currents… Read more

God is Responsible in His Love by Giving to His Creation God is responsible in His love by giving to His creation. Responsible love is the ability to effectively respond to love. Our problem as Christians is that we don’t know how to respond to God’s love. We see that in Genesis. God creates Adam and Eve. God expresses enormous love to them in the following ways: He creates them. He provides for them. He stays with them God is giving… Read more

God Chooses to Be Responsible with His Love by Creating God in His infinite wisdom and sovereignty chose to be responsible with His love. He chose to be responsible with His love in His act of creation. God created Adam and Eve. Why did God create humans? God created humans so He could “delight in someone to love.” When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man… Read more

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
