But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 4

Written by

Previously, we talked about Satan’s promises that fueled his passion. Since his fall, he has wanted to be like the Most High. We understand this from Isaiah 14:12-14.

12“How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who have weakened the nations!

13“But you said in...

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 3

Written by

The idea that Satan could actually think in terms of becoming like the Most High is absurd, but proves just how far an entity can fall because of pride, arrogance, or hubris. Isaiah 14:12-15 tells the story.

12 “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, You who...

Bible College Name Changes that Delete Bible

Written by

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I wrote about my Alma mater, Philadelphia College of Bible (PCB). I graduated from PCB in 1979 and was the last class to attend the Center City (Philadelphia) campus before it relocated to its current location of Langhorne Manor, PA. Not long after it...

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 2

Written by

Is it all just a chess match that’s open-ended or is there a specific plan that’s being followed with a specific outcome?

In our last article in this series, we introduced the biblical concept that while God could have chosen to immediately confine Satan to the Lake of Fire as soon as sin was found in him, God clearly chose not to do...

False teachers unchecked. Proven wrong, but still spinning. Can’t admit error.

You know, I’m getting fed up, so I cannot imagine how God must feel. In spite of the fact that Jesus said we would not know the day or hour of His return (and ostensibly, the end of the world since that what His physical return means for...

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 4

Written by

Are you willing to obey God as Daniel and his friends did regardless of the cost? Then make disciples of all nations, wherever you are…

In our last installment of this series – Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 3 – we covered Daniel 1:11-13. We want to move on from there, so without further ado, let’s discuss Daniel 1:14.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 1

Written by

Satan sinned and God waited…

While we’re dealing with Daniel 1 in another series, I want to start this new one while it’s fresh in my mind. In this series, we’re going to look at Satan’s original sin, where it led, and why God didn’t put Lucifer (Satan) into the Lake of Fire that was created for him and his...

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 3

Written by

Daniel’s faith and desire to obey God compelled him to reject the king’s “choice” foods.

In our last installment in this series dealing with Daniel 1, we actually went over verses 9 – 13, but I want to take a bit more time in this article to zero in on them and break them down a bit more. There are some extremely...

Pineal Gland, New Age, and Christianity

Written by

Is the pineal gland the doorway to God?

I’m amazed at how many people seem to be floating off into “inner” space on a quest for eternal life or at least to have conversations with God. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised because the Bible warns that in the end times, people will move away from the faith (cf. 1 Timothy...

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 2

Written by

Daniel did not want to defile himself with the king’s food so he asked to be fed vegetables.

We began our journey through Daniel 1 with our last (and first) installment here. While the first chapter of Daniel might not prove to be so filled with historical intrigue and infamy as was Daniel 11, there is much to learn and benefit from in...

Prophecies of Daniel 1, Part 1

Written by

The Land of Shinar dates back to the time of Nimrod and very early Babylon.

I had a great time going through Daniel 11 and recently tied things up with the 19th part that I posted here. In fact, I liked it so much that I thought I’d go back and start at the beginning and dissect each chapter of Daniel until we get through Daniel 12. Once...

Christians Are Not of This World

Written by

Wherever you are, THERE is the mission field…

It cannot be stated enough. Christians are not citizens of this world. We are merely here temporarily.

A verse popped into my inbox this morning from a Verse of the Day website that brought this home to me once again.

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought...

America Is On Borrowed Time

Written by

Yep, not a drop of alcohol to be found after the 18th Amendment went into effect, creating Prohibition. Right…

I hate being an individual who speaks about gloom and doom. I’d prefer to believe that great things are in store for America and that if we’ll only work more diligently and pray harder as Christians, things will get done...

Oh boy (as in “Oh boy” stated by Fred Flintstone too often in the cartoon), I’m sure I’ll hear about differing opinions on this one. I’m okay with that as long as the way people state those differences remains civil. But since sarcasm tends to reign supreme in our society today,...
