HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND SEASON’S GREETINGS?

Gal 4:9  But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? Gal 4:10  Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. Gal 4:11  I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain. Throughout the year, we find people all over the world observing and celebrating various holidays and “holy days;” and while each culture has their own specific “days, and months, and times, and years” to “observe” these days, there is a great importance placed upon these days by mankind based upon how ‘near and dear’ the day has become concerning the individuals lives, or how widely popular the days have become. And while this study may ‘rub some the wrong...

PREACHING THE LORD UNTO THE GRECIANS?

Act 11:19  Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. Act 11:20  And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus. Act 11:21  And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.       As you undoubtedly know, after describing in Acts 8:1 to 11:18 that His program with Israel did not continue on as it was expected to do, and as it was prophesied to do, following the vision that He gave to Stephen; (but instead by what did happen God made it clearly evident that He was doing something...

THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES: ACTS 7 AND 8

Act 8:1  And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. Act 8:2  And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. Act 8:3  As for Saul, he made havock of the church, entering into every house, and haling men and women committed them to prison. Act 8:4  Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.   In view of the prophesied time of “repentance to Israel” that God was giving to His nation during the time covered by the opening seven chapters of the Book of Acts, (which specifically commenced on the Day of Pentecost...

CAN SOMEONE HAVE AN “OUT OF BODY” EXPERIENCE TODAY?

2Co 12:1  It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 2Co 12:2  I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth; such an one caught up to the third heaven. 2Co 12:3  And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) 2Co 12:4  How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.   We have all heard someone at one point in our lives say that they have had an ‘out of body’ experience, and most commonly they will say that they were led to a ‘bright light,’ or hovered over their lifeless bodies, or they will say they...

ISRAEL’S FIRST LESSON IN GOD’S JEHOVAH-NESS

Exo 15:22  So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. Exo 15:23  And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. Exo 15:24  And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? Exo 15:25  And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, Exo 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his...

JUDGING THE AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE RIGHTEOUSLY AS A SON

1Co 6:2  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 1Co 6:3  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 1Co 6:4  If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 1Co 6:5  I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?   Most of our adult lives consist of our using, or not using our ‘better judgment’ concerning the affairs of this life, and facing the consequences that may come, and whether good or bad; we become responsible for our decisions based upon this world’s...

THE SWEET INFLUENCES OF PLEIADES AND THE ZODIAC

Job 38:29  Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it? Job 38:30  The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen. Job 38:31  Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion? Job 38:32  Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Job 38:33  Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?     In view of the context in which God asks Job, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” it is my understanding that they are two of the many ‘ordinance powers’ of the firmament of heaven, which are not only integral components of the very structural...

DID PAUL WRITE THE BOOK OF HEBREWS?

  Col 1:1  Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother, Col 1:2  To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.   In some, if not most bibles declare that the Apostle Paul wrote the book of Hebrews, and we see the title “The epistle of Paul to the Hebrews,” and most will assume that the Apostle Paul penned this epistle just as he did the 13 prior books. This has been a great mystery among the church world because the writer does not identify himself, so most commonly people make assumptions based upon the fact that the writer addressed some of the saints that Paul mentioned in his epistles, and that the grammar of the writer is also...

THE LORD’S BATTLE WITH ISRAEL’S ENEMIES

  Exo 17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?   Exo 17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.   Exo 17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.   Exo 17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.   Exo 17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.   Once God had victoriously brought Israel out of Egypt by single-handedly...

REVELATIONS 12: SEVEN HEADS, TEN HORNS, AND SEVEN CROWNS

Rev 12:1  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: Rev 12:2  And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Rev 12:3  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. Rev 12:4  And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. Rev 12:5  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. Rev...
