Theology 101 – From Isaiah 45

Isaiah 45 — “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me…” Isaiah ministered in Judah at least 100 years before the Babylonian Captivity.

Saved By The Blood

Exodus 12:29-32 — “And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt…” The final devastating plague fell upon Egypt just as the LORD said it would. There was not one Egyptian household that was not visited with death on that terrifying night. But the Children of…

Seeing Jesus, Not The World

Hebrews 2:8b-9a — “But now we see not yet all things put under him. But we see Jesus…” When we look and see the world around us we are often discouraged. The world is not a happy place, it is not what God intended it to be in the beginning. But thankfully, He has sent His…

What No Man Can Tame

James 3:7-8 — “Every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed…But the tongue can no man tame.” How often does our mouth get us into trouble? How often do we say things we regret? We all have a massive problem with our mouth and James wants…

Everlasting Father

Isaiah 9:6 — “And his name shall be called…the everlasting Father…” The son in this famous verse is the Son of God, the eternal Son, but He is also called “the everlasting Father.” How can this be? Isn’t this at odds with what the Bible teaches about the Holy Trinity? The Father is God, but He’s…
