God’s Voice

Does God speak to you? If someone else says that God speaks to them, are they hallucinating? What are examples of God speaking to someone, both in the past and today? These are all good questions, about something very important. Let’s take a look at the subject of God speaking to people.

Who Cannot Be A Disciple

There are those who call Jesus ‘Teacher’, and that is good. I am glad that people believe that they can learn something from Jesus. There are those who call Jesus ‘Savior’, and that is also good. It is wonderful that some people have realized that they need Jesus as a defense attorney when Satan accuses them before God. There are those who call Him ‘Lord’, and that is very good. But there’s more to the story.

Scripture Mistakes!

So many people claim to love scripture, yet don’t live their lives accordingly. True, each and every one of us is “off-track” and none of us has a totally clear and complete picture of God nor God’s plan. I have encountered many people that deeply value reading the Bible, which is good. However, I see little evidence in talking with them that they value their relationship with God. So, let’s have some fun (with no intention of being blasphemous) modifying some scriptures.

10 or 9?

There have been discussions about putting the 10 Commandments in public places. Those that are against it, say that the Government should not endorse Christian principles. They don’t realize that those Commandments are Jewish! There is no record of Him repeating them with a passion to anyone or any crowd! He was not into rules, but relationships. As a Christian myself, I don’t want the 10 Commandments in public places, I want something much, much stronger!

My Answers to Questions

In over four decades of an intimate walk with God, I have been pulled into many conversations. More than half of that time I have had a presence on the internet with well over 500,000 visitors from over 90 countries to my website (which this blog replaces). In short, I have been asked a lot of very good questions about God and Heaven. Here are my answers!

Christian, Christ-follower or Rescue?

Those who believe the New Testament found in Bibles go around calling themselves Christians. Some have decided that “Christian” is not the best word for them and have switched to “Christ-follower”. There is nothing wrong with either word, as both have solid roots. I have met some “Christians”, who are proud of being one, yet when I look at how they live, at how they treat others, I get confused about what they say is their value system! To be honest, it’s sad. I prefer

Chosen How? Why?

The phrase “Chosen People” is often used in culture to justify believing that “we” are “better” than “them” because “God” chose “us”. While self-righteousness is not anyone’s best quality, it is a common feature of almost all cultures. It is rare to find a culture that believes others are just as good and just as important as “us”. How are we chosen: elected, drafted, or selected?

Tabernacle, Temple, and Jesus

Earlier, I posted about how the Tabernacle/Temple layout showed us how to go from being “saved only” to someone who can have intimacy with God. This is only a small example of God sending multiple messages with the same scripture, or in this case, with the design of the Tabernacle/Temple.

Tabernacle, Temple, and Today

In the Old Testament, we learn about both the Tabernacle and the Temple. As the Hebrew people left Egypt, they set up the Tabernacle (tent) and after they settled in the Promised Land, Solomon built the Temple. Both had similar layouts. I confess that reading about them is not very … exciting. However, when you see God’s message in their layout, you can see that it’s a guide to your walk with Jesus!
