Be Careful of Only Studying the Bible Forensically

This is how it usually goes with studying the Bible. New Christians read the Bible and discover all the wonderful events and people of God’s Holy Word.  Stories told in younger years of Noah and the Ark and miracles God performed through Moses as the Hebrews were delivered from the bondage under pharaoh are now …

Jesus is Lord!

Follow the Word and see . . . First the Psalm. Make a mental note of the words/phrases, “heathen, “kings,” “rulers” “Thou art my son,” “rod of iron” and “Kiss the Son.” Notice that “Son” is capitalized. David is prophesying of Jesus the Christ, the Holy One of God. “Why do the heathen rage, and …
