  • “And when they say to you, ‘Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,’ should not a people seek their God?

  • “So the LORD said to Moses, ‘Say to Aaron, “Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the land, so that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.”’ And they did so. For Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and struck the dust of the earth, and it became lice on man and beast.…

  • He was not a stranger to pain whether emotional, physical, or otherwise. Yet, he would write, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8.18). The word consider in today’s focus text…

  • Many things which Solomon saw “under the sun” were things that were derived of his own experiences and were, in fact, flawed. Contrary to the axiom, “Experience is the best teacher,” Solomon found out that experience was sometimes deceitful and wrong conclusions could be easily drawn. However, not…

  • During the Watergate Investigations about three or four decades ago, Sam Ervin, the late Senator from North Carolina, was heard to say, “It sometimes is better to have a good forgettery than a good memory.” His remarks came on the heels of repeated memory failures on the part of then-President Nixon’s…

  • Once saved, always saved is not a biblical doctrine. This doctrine is also referred to by some as the impossibility of apostasy as well as the perseverance of the saints. One New Testament example is adequate to prove that this doctrine is of men and not of God. Today’s devotional will…

  • From the pen of Jeremiah we are able to read of the horrific spiritual condition of the fallen nation of Israel. Essentially the entire nation of Israel had gone whoring after other gods, the gods of the heathens that surrounded them. The way for this great apostasy was paved by false kings, false priests, false prophets,…

  • “Then Elisha went to Damascus, and Ben-Hadad king of Syria was sick; and it was told him, saying, ‘The man of God has come here.’ And the king said to Hazael, ‘Take a present in your hand, and go to meet the man of God, and inquire of the LORD by him, saying, “Shall I recover from this disease?”’…

  • Have you ever marveled at anything? Has anything ever amazed you? Inasmuch as Jesus was as wise as He was and knew all the things that He did, would you think that He would ever have marveled at anything or encountered anything that amazed Him? It is interesting that there are only two biblical events in which…

  • “Let’s not haggle about the price; just give me what you think is fair!” There have been times when I have said this to a close and trusted friend. Maybe it was about a bit of carpenter work I did for them, or perhaps they wanted to buy something from me for which I had no particular need. What follows…

  • Years ago, there was a particular mail order catalog which was found in virtually every American household; it displayed items for sale in a very predictable order. This “ranking” also corresponded with the escalating cost of each of item within that grouping.  For instance, tires were listed as Good,…

  • Some questions seek information; some questions are posed for effect; some questions are rhetorical. Today’s question (i.e. What is man that You [God] are mindful of him?) is a question of wonderment and awe. On the one hand, God is so mighty and magnificent; on the other hand, man is so weak and non-spectacular.…

  • “Now Saul [later known as the apostle Paul] was consenting to his [Stephen’s] death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.
