Ending it all…

First I have to say that I find it amazing that they divided this book into chapters where this particular verse falls exactly at 13:13 .... hmmmm 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that...

John 1:1

John used the word "Word" in dual form intentionally, to the Jew this meant the same as the Law of Moses "In the beginning YHVH created"; this is further expounded in Colossians 1:15-17 "The Son is...

Zechariah 9:9 "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem, behold thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having Salvation; lowly and riding upon an ass,...

Oooops, I did it again ….

Sorry Brittany fans, its just me...... I was invited to a "gospel revival" at a Church of Christ and actually went today. The topic was 'The Music of Revelation' which found to be very odd for a group of people that do not allow instruments in their sanctuary. Couldn't resist the option to go.  ... Continue Reading →
