Notes on Exodus 36-38

Exodus 36-38 is the action of constructing the ark of the testimony/ark of the covenant/ark of the Lord/ ark of God/ holy ark/ art of thy strength/ ark of the Lord God (seven names; seven is the number of perfection. Hmm…), the tabernacle, and the various other tools and instruments that were laid out in… Continue reading Notes on Exodus 36-38

Notes on Exodus 33-35

God is still quite angry at the children of Israel in the beginning of Exodus 33. Moses once again tries to stand in for his people to assuage God’s anger. Notice that God gets angry. In our modern churches, we often hear only that “God is love,” which is true. God can also be anger,… Continue reading Notes on Exodus 33-35

Notes on Exodus 28-29

Exodus 28-29 are seemingly monotonous chapters that describe the garments of priests and some rules on sacrificing animals. However, there are some interesting nuggets found within these passages. 1. Suiting up for the priesthood is similar to putting on the “whole armor of God” denoting that the priest was going to spiritual battle just as… Continue reading Notes on Exodus 28-29

Notes on Genesis 38-40

Judah (the Messianic line) married a Canaanite woman (Hamitic) and had many sons. The firstborn, who married Tamar, was killed by God for being wicked. The second was killed by God for not being with Tamar. The Messianic line now passed through Pharez, the son of Judah and Tamar. The messy Messianic line is full… Continue reading Notes on Genesis 38-40

Notes on Genesis 32-34

We cannot escape our sin nature. Even after God blesses us and teaches us a strong lesson, we fall back into old habits. Several years had passed since Jacob lied and essentially stole Esau’s blessing when the two were reunited. We should note that Jacob (Israel) was in total fear of Esau (Rome) when Esau… Continue reading Notes on Genesis 32-34

Notes on Genesis 22-24

Interesting. Genesis 22:8 (KJV) "God will provide himself a lamb" and (MEV) "God will provide for himself the lamb". The King James leaves a double meaning; the lamb will be provided for God AND God will become the lamb himself. Isaac was to be sacrificed, but God decided to provide the lamb that would take… Continue reading Notes on Genesis 22-24

Testing the Law of First Mention

I was asked by a sweet lady from church to expand on the Law of First Mention that I talked about earlier this week. She specifically wanted to know about wine. I had not yet looked into this fully, so I was more than happy to put this “law” to the test. LAW OF FIRST… Continue reading Testing the Law of First Mention

Notes on Genesis 4-7

*Updated on April 29, 2019 *Chapter 4 begins with the births of Cain and Abel. There is an interesting argument here that is worth knowing. Some believe that Satan, when he “beguiled” Eve back in Genesis 3, actually seduced her and got her pregnant. The result of that pregnancy is Cain, of whom Eve declared… Continue reading Notes on Genesis 4-7

Notes on Genesis 1-3

**Updated on April 28, 2019. **Genesis 1-3 begins with the story of creation. Believe it or not, there are several disagreements on the timeline for creation among Christians. Some believe that the entire universe was created in six literal 24-hour period. Some believe that each of the six days of creation were actually 1,000 years… Continue reading Notes on Genesis 1-3

Taking God for Granted

Think of all the things we take for granted in life. The concepts of white privilege and patriarchy are that white males have certain historical advantages that they never actually think about. Things are becoming more egalitarian, for sure. However, Western civilization has been, for better or worse, a product of straight white men exploiting… Continue reading Taking God for Granted
