Three reasons for studying biblical genealogies

Here is a great article regarding why we shouldn’t just skip over biblical genealogies when we read the Bible. If we believe that all scripture is inspired by God and inerrant, then we have no excuse to skim over those parts that our human brains deem unimportant.

Why we should study Biblical Genealogies.

What the Gospel is and why most of us don’t know it.

I was watching a sermon this morning on Romans chapter 3 – one of my favorite books of the Bible – by a pastor I had never heard of before.

I was impressed by the way he could take concepts that we new Christians in the 21st century have difficulty understanding, and explaining not only what they are but why we have difficulty understanding them. He also without apology explains what the church is doing wrong in it’s explanation of the Gospel.

Paul Washer became a believer while studying at the University of Texas. After graduating, he moved to Peru and served there as a missionary for ten years, during which time he founded the HeartCry Missionary Society in order to support Peruvian church planters. HeartCry’s work now supports indigenous missionaries throughout Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Eurasia, North America, and Latin America.

Paul now serves as one of the laborers with the HeartCry Missionary Society. He and his wife Charo have four children: Ian, Evan, Rowan, and Bronwyn

Here is the Roman 3 Video I watched this morning. I pray that it blesses you the way it has me.

Testing the Spirits / Spiritual Warfare

I was watching a sermon from John MacArthur today which I felt I needed to share. Pastor MacArthur does a phenomenal job sticking with Scripture when describing what Spiritual Warfare is, what it isn’t, and how to test the spirits. He speaks of who is responsible for doing it and why we do it.

He explains in great detail who the Holy Spirit is, and how He works in our lives. And he warns of the wolves in sheep’s clothing today, inside our church.

SOVEREIGN

God presides over every event, great or small, and He is in control of our lives. To be sovereign, He must be all-knowing and all-powerful, and by His sovereignty He rules His entire creation.

1 Chronicles 29:10-13 ESV – 10 . . . “Blessed are you, O LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. 11 Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. 12 Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all.
