“So Abram went forth as the LORD had spoken to him…”  Wow! The God of the universe, Creator of all mankind, Giver and Sustainer of life spoke to Abram. That would have been unlike the other idols his father had known. Maybe he had looked at the statues his family carved from wood or stone […]

“…and in you (Abram) all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3) Abram is the beginning of the Hebrew nation. We answered our question (article #7) as to how one individual becomes a nation. It was birthed by a God who chose, a man who responded, and a God who keeps His […]

ABRAHAM’S SEED Abraham, the father of the Jewish nation, “believed God and it was counted to him as righteousness”. Anyone who responds to God as Abraham did, in belief and obedience, will also be called the sons (and daughters) of Abraham. This is how the prophecy God made to Abram about being “a blessing to […]

“Lovely Feet” Lovely feet belong to him who says to Zion, “Your God reigns”. (Isaiah 52:7). Why does God care about the feet of His messengers? In short, it is because if the bearer of news doesn’t tell the whole truth, then he can be discredited. Jesus was sent by His Father to come into […]

THE PLIGHT OF ALL GENTILES Gentiles in the flesh (outside of a relationship with Jesus Christ) are …dead in your trespasses and sins (against God and man) and therefore children of wrath (Ephesians 2:1-3) …separated from Christ (the Messiah) ….excluded from the commonwealth of Israel ….no promises ….no hope …without God …in the world (strangers, […]

THE PLIGHT OF THE JEWS “Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD will not take into account.” The question is then asked, “Is this blessing then upon the circumcised (Jew); or upon the uncircumcised (Gentile) also? For we (Jews) say, “Faith was reckoned to Abraham as righteousness. How then was it reckoned? While he […]

My husband and I went to see the movie, “Wall Street”, when it first came out. It was an interesting movie and, for the most part, we really liked it. There was one phrase in it I still remember to this day and it’s something to ponder … (not necessarily verbatim) “Growing old is not for sissies.” […]

It is so funny how we look for a starting place to invoke change. I do not believe that most of us just wake up on a day and say I am going to quit this or that. Or, I am going to quit my job and start a business of my own (you fill […]

It was a day wrapped in disappointment! I am most thankful that I don’t have many days like that. But not today…this was a dreary, gloomy (sensing winter’s approach) day of emotional let downs. Two of my friends recently lost their loved ones and my heart was heavy for them at their loss of mom […]
