Why I Wrote Middle Grade Adventure Fantasy Keeper Of Reign

Thought I’d let my readers of Keeper of Reign, some of the back story of how and why I wanted to write this allegorical fantasy for children 10 to 16. One of the things that helped me to hone in on the theme for Keeper of Reign is the song from Switchfoot. When I first heard their song…

The Power Of Words In The Bible Study

Following last Saturday’s blog, I thought I’d go on to the Christmas story of Zechariah found in Luke chapter 1. Yeah, I know it’s still six months to Christmas, but since we’re doing the importance of words in the Word Series, the story bears a huge significance.   Have you ever wondered why the angel…

What God Says About Death As Defined In The Bible.

Does God contradict Himself in The Bible? Have you ever wondered if God contradicts Himself? Like in the Bible, for instance? How can we really get to know Him?

Does The Bible Claim Jesus Is Yahweh? Sometimes I get the question, where does the Bible claim that Jesus is God? Or “Does Jesus ever claimed that He’s God?” I thought I’d tackle this by drawing attention to the name of God commonly used in the Old Testament, (and by the Jesus in the Bible,)…

Jesus the sacrificial lamb found in Genesis.

 How many times did the Old Testament refer to Jesus? In the following weeks I thought I’d take a break from my “names” series and look at the pre-incarnate Christ and his mention or presence in the Old Testament.
