  Bringing the Gospel to the People of Your New Culture As God will place us in the new culture, one of our responsibilities will be to share Jesus with the people in our new culture. How are we to do this? How can I share Jesus with someone whom does not speak my language clearly and to whom I cannot speak their language clearly? This is a difficult task, but it can be done. In Acts 8, we have… Read more

How a Foreigner Should Show Compassion for the Native Citizen But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a… Read more

Homosexuality is False Marriage But from the beginning of the creation, God “made them male and female.’ “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” (Mark 10:6-9 NKJV) Homosexual marriages, whether they are with two men or two women, are a form of false… Read more

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
