Salvation, Righteousness and Life

The Ambiguous Meaning of Salvation If you live in the Western world you’ve probably been asked religious questions like, “are you saved?” and “when did you receive your salvation?”  These questions were like grains of sand to me, those little irritations that penetrate and lodge within, refusing to be ignored.  Like the irritations that make their...

Pay careful attention to how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, redeeming your time because the days are full of evil (bad).  Ephesians 5:15,16 If you're reading this then you've been given a gift more valuable than money, the gift of time.  We've all been given this same priceless gift.  In my case,...

Truth Will Set You Free, from what?

"Then you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you Free." John 8:32 Truth shines like a Light in the darkness. Opinions About Truth Our opinions about what's good, bad, right, wrong, true or false have led to many an ugly disagreement.  Religious, political and family feuds exist as proof of those who do...

Who Abolished the Seven Feasts of YHVH?

Who Abolished The Seven Feasts? Y'shua didn't abolish the seven feasts of YHVH, Matthew 5:17.   On the contrary He said, "until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Torah until all is accomplished." Matthew 5:18; Matthew 24:35; 1 Peter 1:25; Psalm 111:8; Psalm 119:89; Isaiah 40:8. So when and why did they disappear from... Continue Reading →

Who is Open to Receive Truth?

"Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so" Acts 17:11 Who were these noble-minded people of Berea?  From verse 10 we know they were Judean and met in a Synagogue in Berea.  Berea was located in...

Love is Humble

Love is Humble Is there a connection between Love and being humble?  I was amazed to find these two words both require the same transformation of  our thinking, Galatians 5:17; Romans 12:2; Philippians 2:2.  "Our natural mind is opposed to the Spirit of Truth."   Could the Truth be as simple as discovering our pride-filled nature is the...

Love is the Plum Line

Love is the Plum Line A Plum-line is a very simple yet very precise tool, a piece of string with a weight at the bottom.  The law of gravity assures us, with 100% accuracy, when we align with "true vertical," because the plum-line always hangs perfectly straight. What if we had a plum-line for Truth?... Continue Reading →
