“The God Code” – Documentary

Just watching this now – it is available ONLY until the 14th of April.  I’m watching through Direct TV, but there are other options.

The God Code – History Channel

 

ABOUT

Behind locked doors in St. Petersburg, Russia is the Leningrad Codex, the world’s oldest complete text of the Hebrew Bible. Because of its ancient origins, it is a purer version of the Bible–containing words and characters lost in later translations. Timothy Smith, an antiquities expert, believes he’s found an intricate code hidden within its text, one that may not show up in later translations. This two-hour special takes viewers on a journey across the globe to find out if the hidden code is real. If it is, could this be the actual word of God? A code written into his own divine work. A master plan for history? The code is said to point to a diverse variety of historical events from the rise of Hitler to the threat of North Korea and it may even point to the location of one of the greatest treasures of all, the lost Arc of the Covenant.

Can Love Confront?

Enter Wonderland

Today’s post is a little different from the others, as I share a passage from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book, Life Together. The reading is from Chapter 4: Ministry.  Although it is very dry, it’s an excellent read, one that certainly challenges my perception of Christian fellowship.  I would recommend it for anyone looking to understand common devotions or seeking ways to improve personal devotions.  Available on Amazon.


The speaking of that Word is beset with infinite perils.  If it is not accompanied by worthy listening, how can it really be the right word for the other person?  If it is contradicted by one’s own lack of active helpfulness, how can it be a convincing and sincere word?  If it issues, not from a spirit of bearing and forbearing, but from impatience and the desire to force its acceptance, how can it be the liberating and healing word?

Moreover, the person who…

Here is a YouVersion image from good friend, Steve King. How do the Scriptures define ‘saint?’ You may have the testimony of Yeshua, but do you keep the commandments of God?

Malachi 4 says the generation in the days of Elijah will keep the Law of Moses… EVEN the statutes and ordinances!!

Got Torah? Might be a good time to investigate…

Difficult verses in the ‘christmas’ story… p.2

Difficult verses in the ‘christmas’ story part 2. Study to show yourself approved…..

natsab

Yesterday, we began a short series considering some verses from the ‘Christmas’ story that challenge the traditional theological narrative of Christendom.  As I implied yesterday, these verses should pique our interest in a search for truth.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t care what men say, I want to see what Scripture says….


Thy Kingdom Come

When someone talks about the Millennial Kingdom or the future eternal Kingdom, what comes to mind?  Whose Kingdom is it?  Who rules over it?  Who was it promised to?  Who Messiah throneactually gets it?  Etc….  At the end of the Book of Revelation, what does the Kingdom look like and who is in it?

Scripture gives a very unified story that often does not match the narrative I was taught growing up.  At least, the focus I heard in church was quite different than what Scripture says.

A beloved part of the ‘Christmas’…
