Is Earth Visited by Celestial Beings?

There is the Bible view and the secular view. Hardly a day goes by without television shows on this subject. The interest in extraterrestrial life and contact is universal. Bible accounts of who visitors are and why they come are also very prolific. Jude 1:6 refers to angels who left their ‘first habitation’ (heaven) and came to earth….

ROI – God expects it. How does our part look?

ROI is Return On Investment. God endows capabilities, so we can give back to Him when He returns. In Matthew 25:14-25, Jesus said, ‘It is like a man about to go abroad who summoned his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to a third one,…

How Far Away is Your Temper?

For those with a short fuse a temper tantrum is a second away. All it takes is blocking our objective. Conquering that trait is a lifetime of work. Behaviors are ingrained through heredity, interaction with situations in our environment and through time. The longer a behavior is ingrained, the deeper it embeds; the longer it…

Giving Precedes Getting

We are driven to satisfy our own needs and desires. That’s what is on our minds when we begin praying. But that is not what God advises us to do when we approach Him. Exodus 23:15: ‘No one will appear before me empty-handed.’ Oops! We came to get, not give. Psalms 100:4 says, ‘Come within…

Proliferate or Wilt?

  Most of us have heard the expression, ‘You are what you eat’. Consumption helps us understand Mark 4: 4-8: ‘Listen! Imagine a sower going out to sow. Now it happened that, as he sowed, some of the seed fell on the edge of the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some…

Guaranteed Life Success Myth or Promise?

If I catch a huge fish at a particular spot, I am inclined to return there. If I catch nothing the second or third time the memory of the big one still persists. I try a few more times, speculating that if one was there, there have to be more. I don‘t persist at spots…

What can God do in one second?

For starters, He makes the light emanating from every object in the universe travel 186,272 miles. That’s quite an example of what can be done in a short amount of time? Ephesians 5:16: “Make the best of the present time, for it is a wicked age.” For loafers and sluggards, time is for idleness; work…

Fear and Hate – They are Both Wise

Psalm 111:10 says, ‘The fear of the Lord in the beginning of wisdom.’ Proverbs 1:7 and 9:10 say the identical thing. Three times God tells us that we begin to get wise when we begin to fear Him. If the first of the 10 Commandments is to love God with all of our heart, mind,…

Enablers versus Developers

Compassion is a true Christian virtue. We should show it whenever someone is in a difficult situation that they have no control over. Enabling is not the same thing as showing compassion, although enablers describe their actions as compassionate. When people are in difficult situations because of irresponsible actions they have taken, they need development…
