Marcus and Joni – Jonathan Cahn (12.11.2013)

Marcus and Joni – Jonathan Cahn (12.11.2013). Jonathan Cahn explains “The Harbinger,” on “Marcus and Joni.”  If you’re not familiar with “The Harbinger,” this program is a good introduction.  I bought “The Harbinger Decoded” DVD recently, an exceptional documentary with special features that were new to me.  The book and documentary are based on Isaiah […]

JUDE & 2 PETER 2: Regarding False Teachers

I was reading the second chapter of 2 Peter this morning and was struck by its similarity to the Book of Jude, which warns the body of believers about false teachers, wolves in sheep’s clothing.   I love using a cross-reference Bible to compare scripture with scripture. Written by men, inspired by God, the Bible […]

Teaching the Gospel From the Old Testament

Paul is regarded as the Apostle to the Gentiles, and rightly so; but in every city, he went to the synagogue first.  As he stated in Romans 1: 16,  For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, […]

Beyond Duck Dynasty

I Corinthian 6: 9  has been all over the news today, and I’m glad it’s getting 24-hour coverage.  Here it is (a sermon in one verse) in the King James Bible: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?  Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, […]

Give to the Poor Without Fanfare

Yule Probably Hate This

Recently, I ordered some clothes online from one of my favorite stores.  The merchandise arrived in a package with the following words highlighted in red: “Yule Love This.”  Indeed, I loved the clothes but found the slogan annoying, despite the clever word play. What is Yule?  What is Christmas?  If you do a quick search […]

What Does It Mean to be Persecuted for the Sake of Christ?

Most of us in the West have no clue what it means to be persecuted for the sake of Christ.  If people give us the cold shoulder for taking a moral stand or sharing the gospel, we feel persecuted.   But rejection and persecution are not synonymous.  The Apostle Paul gives us a graphic example of what it means to […]
