About

This blog is intended to be a place for me to teach and ponder God’s word aloud.  For more information search for my “Welcome” post.

I sincerely hope it will be of some spiritual value to you.  If it is, I would appreciate knowing in the comments of the appropriate post(s)!

While you peruse this blog, I have one request of you that I put above all others: study God’s word for yourself.  Think for yourself.  Please don’t risk your soul for what others told you about the Bible and God, search it out for yourself.

  1. Curious, what is your take on Deuteronomy 18? also What about the “Church” that can overcome the gates of hell. What and where is it, or do you think it exists yet.

    1. I’m not completely sure about your first question. Is there something specific about which you have a question? I will say that Deut. 18:15 is a prophecy of Jesus as shown from Acts 3:22-23. Matthew 16:18 shows that Jesus would build His (ownership) church (singular). Thus, Jesus has the deed to the church and thus sets the rules for it (which idea is also confirmed in Matthew 17:1-5 and Matthew 28:18). It was established at Pentecost in Acts 2 (see Acts 2:47 especially). Colossians 1:13 shows that Christians were already part of the kingdom of the Son, thus equating the church and kingdom, and making them synonymous terms.
