Hope for Ichabod

1 Samuel 4 tells a story of great despair in one of the darkest days of Jewish history. The Philistines, mortal enemies of Israel, had defeated Israel’s armies; the nation’s judge, Eli along with her priests Phineas and Hophni were dead, and the Ark of the Covenant had been captured. After hearing the news of […]

Dancing Around the Golden Calf

October 22, 1844 is recorded in the annals of history as The Great Disappointment. It was the date that William Miller predicted Christ would return and establish His eternal kingdom.

A Moment of Reckoning

Hillary Clinton declares at the Democratic National Convention that this election is a “moment of reckoning.” I think this may be the one true statement of her political career. “O that my head were waters and my eyes a fountain of tears that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter […]

Statesmen Stand Alone

Help For Immanuel

(Please take the time to read this post. There is not a single reference to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or our broken political system. There is only a heart cry for help in the completion of a most noble and important work.) “Whoever shuts up his ears to the cries of the poor shall himself […]

Swatting At Wasps

O grave, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting? (1 Corinthians 15:55) While attending the funeral of a good friend this past week, I was profoundly impacted by a simple story shared by the Pastor conducting the service.
