Everlasting to Everlasting

Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 in Worship Wednesday | 0 comments

*Worship Wednesday* — Our acknowledgment of GOD does not make Him who He is.  It is not our worship that establishes His rule, for His government is from everlasting to everlasting and His Kingdom will have no end.   Also, we see the reign of Jesus as complete and unchallenged.  All of human history is moving toward one climactic moment when at the name of Jesus every knee will bow.  Before all is said and done, there will be no living thing that will not openly acknowledge the Kingship of Jesus.  All will confess, even if salvation is no longer within their reach.  Satan himself, will proclaim in front...

Is Jesus a Lesser God?

Posted by on Oct 15, 2013 in Tuesday Truth-day | 0 comments

*Tuesday = Truth-day* — If Jesus was a God, what kind of God was He?  Was He equal to the Father, or some sort of junior god?  In John 14: 28, Jesus says, “The Father is greater than I.”  Some will look at this and conclude that Jesus must have been a lesser god.  Are they right?   In John 14 the disciples are moaning because Jesus said He’s going away, returning to the glory that is properly His.  So if they really know who He is and really love Him properly, they’ll be glad that He’s going back to the realm where He really is greater.  Jesus also...

Stepping In, Taking Charge

Posted by on Oct 14, 2013 in Messiah Monday | 0 comments

*Messiah Monday* — What exactly does it mean to say that GOD’s “Kingdom” had arrived in Jesus’ ministry?  It means that through Jesus, GOD was revealing His sovereignty.  He was stepping into history and taking charge, defeating the gods of this world through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son.   Jews remember Israel’s miraculous redemption from Egypt with: “Your people saw your kingdom as you cleaved the sea before Moses.”  Meaning, when the Red Sea parted, GOD’s power burst in on creation in an astonishing way.  GOD was showing His people (and His enemies) who is really in charge of the universe.   Similarly, when Jesus walked...

Did GOD Create and Go?

Posted by on Oct 13, 2013 in Sunday Science | 0 comments

*Sunday Science* — If the cause of the universe was a personal being, is there any evidence that this Creator is still living today?  Maybe the Creator put the universe into motion and now doesn’t exist anymore.   Since the Creator transcends the universe and is above the laws of nature, He created, it seems unlikely that anything in the laws of nature could extinguish Him.  Christians believe this Creator has not remained silent but has revealed Himself decisively in the person, ministry and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, which shows that He’s still around and still working in history.   Again, the proof that everything that began to...

Love Neighbor = Love Enemy

Posted by on Oct 11, 2013 in Philosophy Friday | 0 comments

*Philosophy Friday* — There are some “unpopular” virtues tied to Christianity.  Probably one of the most unpopular is the Christian rule: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”  Because in Christian morals “your neighbor” includes “your enemy,” and so we come against the horrible duty of forgiving our enemies.   Everyone believes forgiveness is a great idea … until they have to forgive someone.  This is what Christianity is, and right in the middle of it all we find, “Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.”  This is where we find that we are offered forgiveness on no other terms but forgiving others first.  It is...

Revelation Generally Available

Posted by on Oct 10, 2013 in Theology Thursday | 0 comments

*Theology Thursday* — What do we mean by general revelation? It’s generally available.  It is not restricted to certain people or certain times and places in history. It is available to all of humankind. Secondly, on the basis of God’s general revelation in nature and conscience, people can know that there is a Creator of the universe who has enormous power; but they won’t know that He’s a Trinity, and they won’t know that He became incarnate in Jesus Christ. So general revelation gives only general information about who God is, not specific information.   Now how does God reveal himself generally to us? In Romans, Paul talks about...
