  • God’s plan will unfold in judgment

    The temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God and from his power, and no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed. Revelation 15:1-8

    Prelude to the bowl judgments: The tabernacle of testimony is literally “the tent of witness.” It’s the exact word describing the ancient tabernacle in the Greek text of Exodus 40:34-35.

  • Babylon may be a symbol of satanic world system

    References for this column include Revelation 14:1-5, The Lamb and the 144,000; and Revelation 14:6-13; The proclamation of three angels.

    The first angel flies about the earth preaching the gospel to all men during the last three and a half years of this age. The same preaching we now hear except he will be able to announce the hour of God’s judgment. We can only announce it is coming.

    The second angel will fly in the heavens announcing the fall of literal Babylon, which will be destroyed under the seventh vial.

  • Rely on the Scriptures to avoid arguments

    How do you avoid arguments with others? James 4:1 says, “They come from your desires that battle within you.” When my wants conflict with your wants the sparks fly.

    In James 4:1-10 he goes into greater detail as to the causes of conflict, but I want to look at his cures for conflict. “God gives grace to the humble” (4:6). “Humble yourselves before God and He will lift you up” (4:10). The cure is humility.

  • Avoid strife for a godly life

    Personality conflicts cause many problems in our lives. We don’t get along with some people and when relationships are bad, life stinks. It is very important that we learn to get along with others.

    James says in 3:18, “Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.” We sow seeds every day in our relationships and one day there will be a harvest. What kind of harvest will it be? It all depends on the seeds we have sown. The question then becomes: How can I plant seeds of peace and have peaceful relationships?

  • Moral rot within a nation can cause its downfall

    When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But with wise and knowledgeable leaders, there is stability. Proverbs: 28:2

  • You're never too old to get a new heart and spirit

    Controlling the tongue was our subject last week. James 3:1-12 gives three reasons for controlling the tongue: my tongue directs where I go, it can destroy what I have and it shows who I am inside.

    Our problem is not with our mouth but with the heart. The tongue lets us know what is in the heart. “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34).
