The search for the best government has occupied mankind for thousands of years. And yet, no one would ever call any of the systems in place today ideal.

The Bible gives strong warnings that Satan is a competent adversary. Paul's motivation for instructing us to put on the armor of God is "to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against... spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" (Ephesians:6:11-12). But God goes beyond mere warning and provides us with first-hand accounts of Satan's interactions with men. A considerate reading of these can give valuable insight into just how frighteningly clever the devil really is!

There is a human tendency to resist change; however, God commands us to be different. A quote from one of the great debates of American history speaks to the need to periodically assess our lives and make corrections.

Becoming a Christian means changing your way of life to live the way that God wants, primarily by turning from sin. While it's easy to reject sins such as murder, some of the more "harmless" or "fun" sins can be hard to let go of. You may even be fooled into thinking that they are better than what God commands! The story of Saul and King Agag speaks powerfully to this issue, providing a lesson that we should examine ourselves by.

Hannah endured years of harsh ridicule over her barrenness before being blessed with a child. Last time, I analyzed her attitude towards God as her rival provoked her during the yearly trips to give offerings at the tabernacle. Though Penninah transformed these joyous occassions into an altogether unpleasant experience for Hannah, she resolved not to let her lack of blessings stop her from being thankful to God during these times. In this blog post, I'll examine her attitude in asking God for a child to put an end to this oppression.

Hannah was the mother of Samuel - one of Israel's greatest prophets - and his birth was a direct answer to her prayers. With Thanksgiving approaching, let's consider her story as a case study on the proper attitude and spirit of thankfulness. In this first post, I'll analyze Hannah's condition and mindset prior to Samuel's birth.

The basic lesson that is typically taught from the parable of the talents is that every person must be diligent and faithful with whatever God has given him in this life. While this is indeed a good and true message, many people overlook the reason why a person should live God's way of life, and much of Christianity has not understood it. The parable teaches that the entire reason for living faithfully is because of the coming Kingdom of God on earth!

Just 100 years ago, there were several nations dubbed "superpowers," which were vying for dominance; thus America has been called the "last superpower" in the sense that it is the last  remaining  superpower from that era. As a child, I thought that the word "last" in that phrase indicated that America was the final superpower that would ever exist. Bible prophecy reveals that there are two more superpowers yet to come that will supplant America and rule the entire world!

Throughout the history of the kings of Israel, one bad king set the standard for the onslaught of evil kings to follow: King Jeroboam. Subsequent kings were measured by whether they continued in the "sins of Jeroboam" (1 Kings:15:34, 1 Kings:16:19, etc.), and no king achieved a higher degree of infamy. Jeroboam did many evil things, but the most distinctive offense, the one that really belonged to Jeroboam, was changing God's Feast of Tabernacles!

In Matthew:9:14-15, Christ was questioned about why His disciples didn't fast as often as the Pharisees did. He explained that they would not fast as long as He was with them, but that they would fast after His death. There is not a single record in the gospels to demonstrate Christ fasting with them, which might lead one to conclude that they never fasted together - but is that view consistent with scripture?

Christ said, " Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill... one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled ." Some have taken this to mean that Christ "fulfilled" the law during His lifetime, causing it to "pass away," and, as a result, Christians today are not required to observe God's law. While Christ did observe  the law perfectly, He did not truly fulfill the law during His first coming - and the upcoming Feast of Trumpets proves it!

Christ's position on the law was clear - do you know what He said, and do you agree with Him?

When I was a young boy attending a Baptist church every Sunday, I had little understanding of what we were doing or why. As I grew older, it took some time before I thought to examine the reason why churches meet every week, and it took even more time before I understood the truth of God's Word about when and how to worship God.
