Day Fifty Seven – Judgment By Our Sin

I find it very sad that so many have tried to change the definition of Biblical sin.  According to God’s Word – the Bible – sin is a transgression of God’s law.  Sin is failure to measure up to God’s glory; His requirements of the law.  Nowadays, we hear things like, “Sin is whatever keeps …

Day Fifty Two – The LORD Is Salvation

Our reading today is Song of Solomon 7 through Isaiah 11.  The reading of Isaiah is interesting, full of Messianic prophecies, and hope for the rest of the world.  The language toward Judah and Israel is quite strong and warns them of their need to return to right worship of YHWH [the LORD]. The prophet …

The Scripture reading for today is 2 Chronicles 5 - 17. One of the things you will notice about the Chronicles is that they maintain a fairly positive approach to the lineage of David, yet do mention their failures, and their turning from the LORD. This morning I took note of king Asa, and the …

My Hope In The Evil Day

Like the Abominations of Evil

"Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem: but did evil in the sight of the LORD, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel. For he built again the high places which Hezekiah …

Repent and Be Fruitful

"There were present at that season some that told Him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.  And Jesus answering said unto them, 'Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?  I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise …
