Dissecting Jeremiah 29:11

The LORD of host, the God of Israel said in Scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope,” Jeremiah 29:11. I recall this was the exact passage assigned to me to exegete in one ofContinue reading “Dissecting Jeremiah 29:11”

Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple

The pandemic triggered a lot of delusions from among the Futurist camp – the belief that Jesus is yet to return in the future. Yes, Jesus promised His disciples He was coming in their generation. See my previous blog “Confused Christianity” for better perspective on the topic. Futurists believe the Second Coming of Jesus ChristContinue reading “Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple”

Confused Christianity

Without a doubt, the 21st Christianity comes in many shapes and forms. Christians differ in doctrines, but they seem to be unified believing that the return of Jesus Christ is still in the future, though it has been millennia since Jesus promised His apostles that He will be coming in their generation. See Matthew 16:27-28.Continue reading “Confused Christianity”

A Reflection On Our Journey and God’s Goodness

“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever. (Psalm 136:1)” Praise God despite the need for social distancing, my weeks have been productive. Thus far, I have Bible studies on the following days: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. Oh yes, our Sunday gatherings are for Bible study, notContinue reading “A Reflection On Our Journey and God’s Goodness”

A Glimpse to Discipleship

The Lord Jesus Christ spent three years calling disciples to Himself. He ate, slept and taught them the truths of the Bible. When opportunity arose, He cautioned against living double lives and encouraged them to trust His Word and change for the glory of God. Nowhere in Scripture did He teach the disciples to enrichContinue reading “A Glimpse to Discipleship”

Oops! They Did It Again

I was asked recently, “Is it true that Russia would supply arms to Middle East nations in war with Israel as taught in Scripture preceding the Return of Christ?” The simple and straightforward answer in Scripture was a definite “no, nowhere in the Bible”; but with Christian myths and fictitious novels, “yes, a lot!” HereContinue reading “Oops! They Did It Again”

Christianity 101

Many won’t admit it but the pandemic has unveiled a lot of mess within contemporary Christianity. Controversy and scandals have rocked the Christian world – sexual scandals, politicking and callous denial of the Covid-19 pandemic causing many to resist the required health protocols. It isn’t surprising however, for conventional Christianity has always been acquainted withContinue reading “Christianity 101”

The Sufficiency Of The Gospel

Jesus did two feeding miracles. In both occasions, the crowd were with Jesus Christ in a desolate place – the five thousand Jews and the four thousand Gentiles (Matthew 15:32-39; Mark 8:1-10). Jesus feeding the five thousand Jews was mentioned across all four gospels of the New Testament Scripture, but only Matthew and Mark recordedContinue reading “The Sufficiency Of The Gospel”

Utopia

I have previously written about my conversion to Christianity on my blog entitled “Regarding Wilmer”. Few days after my only son was buried, a Bible study was started at our home and continued every Monday evening, which lasted for two years. Since then, it became my habit to read the Bible every opportunity available toContinue reading “Utopia”

Let The Reader Understand

The Covid-19 pandemic has been around for a year now. Until today, its origin remains to be a matter of opinion, nothing conclusive or official. Just when vaccines are set to roll out, a couple of new variants or mutations of the virus have emerged and is now spreading, even as the original strain remainsContinue reading “Let The Reader Understand”
