The Hebrew Character of the Christian-Hebrew Epistles, Part I

by

The Christian-Hebrew epistles, those epistles written to believers of Hebrew origin, set themselves apart from the church epistles in that they are not written to Christians of Gentile origin.

The Garden of Gethsemane

by

The Garden of Gethsemane gives us some interesting insight into the heart of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In the garden we see Jesus struggling, sweating profusely, torn up inside, intensely engaged.  We see him so exposed, so human.   He asks his Father for another alternative.  He sees what lies before him and so […]

A Man To Match The Mission

by

Proverbs 18:16: A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. The book bearing Nehemiah’s name also contains his words. Although authored by God, we have a very unique perspective on the history of rebuilding the wall because Nehemiah records the details (at the direction of the Lord) as he lives […]

Dreams That Build Desire

Psalm 10:17: LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: Jesus Christ is our big-brother and our example in whose steps we are to walk (I Peter 2:21). He declared in John 4:34 that his meat was to do the will of […]

Set Your Sights

Proverbs 29:18: Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Vision is the bridge between the present and the future. Vision charts a journey into our future. Without it most people take the path of least resistance doing their best to avoid discomfort. A clearly defined […]
