Caring For the Widow, the Orphan, and the Stranger

The Old Testament and the New has much wealth of how to deal with others, and care for those who are less fortunate than ourselves. "When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the …

Jesus, the Greatest Prophet

"The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto Him ye shall hearken; according to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, 'Let me not hear again the voice of …

Recognizing the True Prophet

"If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, 'Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;' thou shalt not hearken …

Not For Your Own Righteousness

If there were no God like so many are trying to tell us through atheistic and "scientific" thought; this world would have been destroyed way before now.  Without God there would be nothing in the first place; and I would not be sitting at this computer sharing this with you. This article is about righteousness.  …

I Must Not Go Over Jordan

Reading today from Deuteronomy 4 - 6 "And the LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it. Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the …

Subdued Before the LORD

The following is GOD'S promise to the tribes of Gad, Reuben, and the half tribe of Manasseh.  They had chosen to stay on the east side of Jordan, but made the promise that they would cross Jordan and fight for the land alongside their brethren. This is both a promise for their keeping their oath; …

Do You Like Assignments?

It is a great endeavor and an adventure to read the Bible through in a year; or quicker if you choose to do so.  With some more effort a slow reader, such as myself, can read it through in three months. A little less effort to read through the Scriptures in six months.  For a …

A Zeal for GOD, and Holiness

Sometimes I fear, due to what some call grace, that holiness is a forgotten quality within Christianity. We need the zeal of Phinehas in dealing with sin; starting with our own sins. Due to the deceptive, lying, personal aggrandizing of Balaam to make his own greed successful the Moabites came in with lusty pleasures to …

Even the False Will Bless Whom GOD Has Blessed

"And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness. And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the Spirit of God came upon …

Spring Up, O Well

"And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in Oboth. And they journeyed from Oboth, and pitched at Ijeabarim, in the wilderness which is before Moab, toward the sunrising. From thence they removed, and pitched in the valley of Zared. From thence they removed, and pitched on the other side of Arnon, which is in the wilderness …
