  • Life and death reside in God's territory

    My brother and I were blessed to have a mother who lived to age 95.

    Death is a word we desire to put in the back of our minds even though we know it is inevitable and in God’s plan. Every activity has an appointed time (Psalm 31:15).

  • Christ will crush rebellion

    In Revelation 11:12, the witnesses are resurrected.

    “Now after the three-and-a-half days, the breath of life from God entered them and they stood on their feet and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a loud voice from Heaven saying to them, ‘Come up here.’ And they ascended to Heaven in a cloud and their enemies saw them.”

    Revelation 11:15-19 describes the seventh trumpet and the kingdom proclaimed: “The Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ and He shall reign forever and ever.”

  • Bible doesn’t reveal the 'seven thunders'

    Revelation 10:1-7 discusses the mighty angel with the little book. The seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered and do not write them.

    In these verses, the seven thunders are not revealed.

    Revelation 10:8-11: John eats the little book.

  • Problems come to each of us

    Problems come to everyone. The Apostle Peter said, “Don’t be surprised when you have problems.” Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation.” We don’t know when they may come. For example, you don’t plan a flat tire. Trials come in all shapes and sizes.

  • Seventh Seal is a prelude to the seven trumpets

    Seventh Seal: Prelude to the seven trumpets (Revelation 8:1-6)

    The trumpets announce severe judgment in response to the prayers of the saints. Trumpets are a warning signal and a call for mankind to repent of their sins. The plagues released by the blowing of the trumpets are similar to the plagues of Egypt (Exodus 7:17-21; 9:21-25; 10:21-23).

    The first four affect the natural world and the last three affect the unsaved. Some people believe these calamities are symbolic and not literal. They are seen as repetitive throughout history and intensifying as the age closes.

  • Speak the truth in love

    The desire of every Christian should be to please our heavenly father by our deeds, words and attitudes. James shows us ways the Christian can please God.  The book of James is a manual on the Christian life.

    God’s will for every Christian is that we grow spiritually. The writer of Hebrews challenges us, “… let us … go on to maturity” (6:1). God wants us to be like his son. As Christians our standard for measuring our growth is not another Christian, but the word of God.
