    Three Crosses

    April 14, 2017 by SouthWriter

    Three poles lay waiting for three criminals at the place called "the Skull".

    The Savior is lifted up for all sinners to see. Only the saints understand what they are looking at. There is but one Savior before all people, sinners and saints, will one day appear. Will you, dear sinner, be at the Savior's right hand?

    Note: This blogpost does not account for the "destroyers" mentioned in the text; however the general position of an "Angel of Death" remains the same



    Around Passover many begin to recount Exodus' account of the Passover: how the Hebrew Israelites put a lamb’s blood on their door and how an “Angel” killed the firstborn of every Egyptian household. This Angel is often renowned as “the Angel of Death”, but upon searching for this Angel in more detail many ask “Where is the Angel of Death found in the Bible?”

    Actually, the so-called “Angel of Death” is not found in the Bible. In fact, the scenario of the Passover it is not entailed that the “killer” was even an Angel, but God Himself not agents of wrath.

    Since today is Palm Sunday, I decided to tell y'all about it's origins. It finds its roots many years prior to the birth of Jesus. The prophet Zechariah said, after prophesying judgement on the nations, says of Israel:

    "Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion! Shout, Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." (Zechariah 9:9 NIV)

    Now we come to Jesus, on His way to Jerusalem. He sent a couple of His disciples to borrow a man's donkey. It wasn't just any donkey. It was a colt just like the prophecy states. The disciples brought the donkey to Jesus and placed their cloaks on it for a saddle.

    Then Jesus rode on it into Jerusalem with the crowds cheering and wav…

    This chapter of Revelation is starting to look like today. (Scroll down for the chapter text)

    I don't know what the rider on the white horse is, but the second seal appears to be broken. With ISIS and the other Middle East issues, and the possibility of a war with North Korea, this second seal is looking a lot like what we see in the news.

    Then there is the seal that brings famine and economic issues. Likely this is a result of a nuclear war, which could be brought on by the US attacking North Korea. Also as a result of the war and then as a result of the famine, there will be much death. We are already seeing this, but only the beginning of it. For 1/4 of the Earth's population will be dead. But the death will not just be from the war and f…

    Hey everyone. I have decided to learn Hebrew. This is going to be a fun adventure for me. I have tried to learn Hebrew in the past; I'm not sure what stopped me. I am going to first memorize all (or most of) the Hebrew words in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary. Then I will go back through and work on learning how to spell each one. I already know the alphabet (or should I say "alephbet"?) from Hebrew4Christians. If you guys want to learn Hebrew (or at least get the basic idea of what Hebrew is) I would recommend Hebrew4Christians. So far I have learned 3 words (aside from what I already know prior to this endeavour):

    • אָב - 'âb (awb) - father (noun)
    • אֵב - 'êb (abe) - green plant (noun)
    • אָבַד - 'âbad (aw-bad') - to wander away (verb)

    So, before you do it, before you fall, here are some things I have to say as first-hand experience:

    You will get more than you came for. You may have a healthy concept of sexuality going in, but when you leave for the real world, you'll want more. Thoughts and hints won't cut it anymore. You'll want something better. You'll warp and twist your fantasies just to get yourself a better high of dopamine, and you'll warp and twist what you want to see. Soon, what would have disgusted you before you fell is what you'd love to see.

    Yesterday, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the President of the United States, yet numerous do not like the fact. Christians are called to be different from the world. Even if we don’t like Donald Trump, we need to respect and honor him. God put him and everyone else who is in authority in a place of authority; so “whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” (Romans 13:2)

    It is important that we, as Christians, respect the authorities. This includes Law Enforcement. God placed even the Law Enforcement Officers in the place they are at to keep peace in the land. Read what Paul has to say on this matter:

    In the previous blogpost Superdadsuper explores how Mary, Joseph and Elizabeth reacted to the news of a virgin conception


    During the reign of Augustus Caesar, it had been over 150 years since anyone had seen what passed as a miracle in Judea . As reported by the Jews, this miracle made one flask of oil last eight days rather than the one day expected. This happened just as winter was beginning. Today we know the commemoration as Hanukkah.

    Even the devoutest Jew did not expect miracles to happen. Mary of Nazareth was no exception. Her reaction to Gabriel's claims showed that she thought them impossible. Even when the angel told her that her older cousin, once barren, was now pregnant, she could only wait to see if this unheard of miracle woul…

    Virgin Birth: Reactions

    December 18, 2016 by Superdadsuper

    Imagine a married man who is preparing his future life with his new bride. Suppose this bride was gone on a three month trip to help her cousin and when she returned was found to be pregnant! What kind of feelings would this cause? Well, Joseph knew this feeling exactly, because he was this man and Mary was the wife. It sounds like the typical story of the unfaithful wife who shared her intimacy with another man, because she had not had any with her husband.

    In the next blogpost we will explore how the Bible claims the Virgin Birth as a literal event rather than an allegory

    Written in Stone

    November 19, 2016 by SouthWriter


    After the Assyrians descended upon the northern kingdom (aka "Israel") they preserved the land and its apostate religion by settling their own people among the poor and disenfranchised remnant.

    The Samaritan religion persists to the present as an accepted Hebrew sect in larger Judaism. However, some Jews might not be so accepting of that sect. Recently the Living Torah Museum in Brooklyn, NY, auctioned of an old Roman era memorial plaque of the Samaritan version of the Ten Commandments. The third commandment against taking the 's name in vain was replaced with a Samaritan Commandment requiring that a temple be built on Mount Gerizim rather than in Jerusalem.

    The winning bid was $850,000 for the two-foot square marble tablet that once had be…

    Poem.

    November 12, 2016 by Snowstripe the Fierce

    A thought is an indulgence: A relieving moment for the soul. A time when our mind reminds us we’re fine, And our darkness is revealed as a whole.

    I suppose my soul began to wander When the Feelings of youth first began. The Voices of my mind said, “Deeper!” And so deeper and still I began.

    The Old Man shook his head and warned me, Saying, “Boy, don’t go off or run away!” Yet I ignored his plight, slinking off into Night. I’m in a way lost still to this day.

    The Voices now began to humor me, Letting me rest on Abjection’s bitter mirth, They claimed I was “better”, yet bound in a fetter, They watched me raise the Beast I had birthed.

    At first I’d thought to hide It. The Voices quite soundly agreed. “No one ever wants to see That,” they’d warn me…

    The Psalmist declared the necessity to store the Word of God in a safe place: the mind. This was necessary because even stone tablets can break and be scattered. The early use of papyrus (ancient paper) made the more permanent clay tablets obsolete for everyday use. Such a find is rare because of the fragile nature of papyrus. As attractive as it might be to dream of finding something from the pen of an Apostle, the nature of the medium makes this .practically impossible.

    Let us praise God that His people have gotten the Word out as they wrote, taught and preached to others over the millennia.

    Experts and Bias

    The secular news magazine Newsweek presents coverage of what secular experts claim may be fake documents among the so-called Dead Sea Scrolls. Based on what these scholars consider a "strong coincidence" they are launching an investigation to develop "methods with which to counter [the] threat" of forgeries being sold to American evangelicals such as Steve Green and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    Though the concern may be real, the "flag of fakery" they consider is fragments preserved on the subject of homosexuality drawn from two passages in Leviticus. With texts going back to at least the Septuagint, there is no doubt to these texts being available in the days of the verified scrolls. Leviticus is part of the Torah…

    They recognize their inability to save themselves. This humility acknowledges God’s ownership over everything.

    The beatitudes have a pattern. Each one is certain stage in a person’s walk with God. In this first stage, the person realizes his emptiness and inability to save himself. He is humble before God. They are considered blessed because they are going to be a “co-owner” of the kingdom of heaven, looking ahead to a future stage.

    If you are already saved, that means you have already made it to this point in life. But don’t stop there, continue on in your walk with God. Study the Bible, pray without ceasing, and be a witness to those who are yet to be saved. Perhaps they will see their lack and become poor in spirit and come to a place of …

    Take a pause in your day and read today’s devotional.

    Renewing our minds is changing the way we think. So we have to intentionally change our focus to God’s Kingdom from earthly things (which are things related to sin, sin itself, and even the temporary things of life). Renewing our minds is how we are transformed from living with our focus on earthly things. These verses were written as a command, not a suggestion, so we must work hard on setting our hearts and minds on things above.

    Irrelevancy

    October 19, 2016 by Snowstripe the Fierce

    I've heard around the block about the dispution among the Church as to whether or not Christ married during His time on Earth. If He did, this would raise some alarming questions: 

    1. Who did He marry?

    2. Were His children holy?

    3. Where were they when Jesus died?

    4. Did He even have children with this wife?

    These are a few among many others. However, I see no evidence pointing positively for or against Christ marrying and having children. On the one hand, He came to live a full human life, and children are a natural part of it. On the other hand, He didn't come to have children; he came to save us. 

    Whatever is the truth, this notion is irrelevant to our salvation. Christ's main purpose wasn't to just live a human life and tell God what it's li…

    Little Details

    October 6, 2016 by SouthWriter

    Worldview is a powerful influence. Archeology in Israel and surrounding lands is often in the hands of those that have their minds made up concerning the history of Israel. In their heyday, these skeptics were even claiming that the mighty kingdom of David and Solomon never existed. Others denied the exodus .

    All along, they had the Bible at hand, and chose to ignore it. Instead, they put a spin on what the ruins tell them in order to "disprove" the recorded word of those who were there. And so, when mundane details come to light, even Christians seem surprised that the Bible accurately records the sometimes dirty details.

    Moving a thousand years through the clouds of dust of time, he finds himself on the shores of the Sea of Galilee (Gennesarret) and the town of Magdala , hometown of his friend and follower Mary .

    In well preserved ruins, archeologists have revealed details including a stone "tabletop" like that which Jesus would have used to spread out the scroll of Isaiah in his hometown of Nazareth not too far from these stones when they were in everyday use by those who knew Jesus personally.

    Folks like to play in the dirt over in Israel. There is a good reason for this: that dirt covers ruins that shed light on the life and times of the Bible. Often, we are challenged to stand on the Bible rather than on the interpretation in publications written by people who don't take God's word seriously. But there are those that look at the same evidence through the lenses of faith.

    Dr. Eric Mitchell, of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary is such a man. Writing for the Christian Examiner he states:

    Everything was fulfilled in the Ressurection and the grave time of Jesus. This is part 2 out of 2 for our two-part blog about how Old Testament biblical prophecies were fulfilled in the Crucifixion and Ressurection of Jesus Christ, celebrating Good Friday and Easter (Ressurection Day). This blogpost (part 2) talks about how prophecies were fulfilled in Jesus's time where he was dead and his ressurection. You can check out part 1 about the Crucifixion and Death's fulfilment of prophecies.


    While Jonah may seem distant, having lived hundreds of years before Jesus, his account provides an interesting foreshadowing of Jesus in the grave. When Jonah ran from God , so he didn’t have to travel to the Assyrian capital of Nineveh , he was thrown into…

    Resurrection Sunday, most commonly called “Easter,” is the annual holiday in which the resurrection of Jesus Christ is celebrated. Often the true reasons for celebration of this day are forgotten, as both the event itself and the Bible are disregarded. Often not only  the biblical significance of the suffering  but also of the Resurrection is neglected. In followup to our blog for Christmas we are going to discuss the Passion, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the perspective of biblical prophecy and foreshadowing.


    One of the best examples of prophecies of Jesus’s crucifixion in the Old Testament is found in Psalm 22. Though this Psalm was written by David at least a thousand years before the crucifixion, it describes the e…

    I am remiss for not adding to the "Jesus Christ" article for today, "Maundy Thursday" in the (Catholic and Protestant) Church Calendar.  This holiday is set on the Thursday before Good Friday to commemorate the last evening of Jesus' life before His death on the cross. On that night, Jesus celebrated a covenant meal with his disciples and washed their feet.  He then gave this this command (L. Mandatum):

    A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  (John 13:35)

    Risen: A Movie Review

    February 24, 2016 by SouthWriter

    Risen was a well scripted screenplay depicting the angst faced by the Romans in the light of the lie foisted on them by the Sanhedrin. What was Pilate to believe? He had tried to keep the fanatics calm by killing Jesus, only to hear that the body had been somehow stolen by the very cowards who had run away from the crucifixion.

    The depiction of the awful conditions surrounding the crucifixion , including the probable shallow grave for victims nearby, requires an “PG-13” rating, as does the brutality of Roman soldiers putting down a rebellion among the Jews. However, in this, the truth of the scriptures is reflected, for we read of these uprisings being dealt with harshly . I would give this movie a strong B.

    A closer look at our salvation from Hebrews 2.

    The writer of Hebrews had just said in verse 14 "All of them are spirits on a divine mission, sent to serve those who are about to inherit salvation, aren’t they?" So the writer is saying that because the Angels are sent to serve those who about to inherit salvation, we must pay closer attention to what we have heard (teachings) or we may drift away. So pay attention, this is serious stuff.

    1 For this reason we must pay closer attention to the things we have heard, or we may drift away,

    If we neglect the salvation we have in Christ, we will suffer the consequences of sin. God, in Christ, payed the price to redeem us from the death we deserve, counting us as righteous when we deserved death. This …

Since there are biological mechanisms that can create "fire" (bombardier beetle, for instance), it is reasonable to believe something like this could have existed.

    Ever since Eve shared the fruit with Adam, mankind has known the difference between righteousness and evil. However, there is a constant attempt to redefine the terms. Earlier testimony in this "courtroom drama" has demonstrated that the rules have not changed. Men in their hearts know right from wrong.

    However, mankind holds tenaciously to its right to do what it wants, in spite of what God has said to the contrary. When they do, though, they hide motives and change rules along the way to appear good to their fellow men.

    Job 21 -- 31

    I have allowed myself to get behind, so I have collected ten or eleven brief thoughts from my readings for the last three days.  Most of these are paraphrases from what Job had to say, though Bildad butted in for a brief few verses (chapter 25).

    Job 21:13-15  The attiude of the secular and successful man: "Look at what I have done. Who needs God?  I certainly don't!"

    This attitude stretches across the ages.  People get rich and credit their own ingenuity.  Without any reason for God in their lives, they go merrily into oblivion.  Most often they wouldn't have it any other way!
