Light for Dark Times

But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

~ Hebrews 5:14

Hell is Truth Known Too Late

This begins a series on Luke 16:19-31, the account of the Rich Man and Lazarus. Here we consider the two men's earthly states and think about the error of concluding that earthly prosperity evidences the blessing of God while poverty proves the absence of His blessing.

Christ in Hosea (CHS 12-14)

We conclude this series of messages on Hosea by making an overview of the entire book and finding the "dark sayings" about Christ and His redemption which appear repeatedly in the midst of God's pronouncement of judgment upon Israel. We focus particularly on Hosea 13:14 which is quoted by the Apostle Paul in 1 Cor 15.

He issues a clarion call for those who love Christ to answer the call to love the oppressed and speak for the victims, as Proverbs 31:9 says: “Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.”
