Genesis 2:21-22 – Wedding Ceremony?

| April 19, 2014

Wedding ceremonies often point out that woman did not come out of Adam’s head so that she would rule over him; nor from his feet so that he would run over her; but from his side, close to his heart. Romantic, but maybe not the real reason why. Out of Adam’s side came his bride, […]

2 Kings 4:8-37 – Praying through the Bible #116 – A Prayer for Resurrection Again

| January 14, 2014

The Bible is filled with unnamed heroes. This nameless woman’s story sounds familiar, but that is how the Bible is inspired. God keeps telling the same stories with different characters.

Ezra – Who Am I? (Finding Jesus)

| July 13, 2012

The book of Ezra foretells and foreshadows the coming of Christ in a rather intriguing and interesting way – not by one person, but through the two returns and their two leaders. Both individuals, Zerubbabel and Ezra, together tell the story of Christ and His coming kingdom. Both returns are equally decreed by a King […]

Hebrews 9:4 – Jesus in the Ark (Finding Jesus)

| October 13, 2011

Did you know that the Ark of the Covenant had three objects hidden within, hidden behind the veil? According to Hebrews 9:4, they were: “a gold jar containing the manna, Aaron’s staff that budded, and the tablets of the covenant.” Each had a purpose for the generation when placed into the Ark. The tablets were […]
