Gods of the New Age

I have been working on a theory for a few years now, though I did not realize it at the time. It will hopefully shed some light on some of the more interesting and controversial topics of our day. I’m working on a much larger version of it, but I would like to gauge interest … Continue reading Gods of the New Age

Notes on Deuteronomy 30-34

God wants us to hear, learn, and fear the LORD (Deut. 31:12-13). This order is repeated twice. We are to hear and learn the Word of God, then we are to fear Him. I believe this is because the more we learn of God, the more we cannot help but fear him. Unfortunately, our modern … Continue reading Notes on Deuteronomy 30-34

Notes on Deuteronomy 14-20

The Israelites are a “peculiar people” (Deut. 14:2), which is why it is silly for Christians and Americans today to think that all the laws of the Old Testament apply to us. It is why anti-Christians always want to point to the Pentateuch in order to lecture us on our hypocrisy. They are fools to … Continue reading Notes on Deuteronomy 14-20

Notes on Deuteronomy 1-2

Deuteronomy is the last of the five books of the Jewish Pentateuch, also known as the Law of Moses. The first two chapters are a quick rundown of some of the events that occurred in the book of Numbers. It takes place near the end of the 40 year wandering in the wilderness, and the … Continue reading Notes on Deuteronomy 1-2

Notes on Numbers 31-32

The children of Israel went to war against the Midianites and achieved near total destruction. The battle was so one sided that not one Israelite soldier was killed (Num. 31:49). Though they were commanded to slaughter everyone, the Israelites kept the women and children alive, and were punished with a plague (Num. 31:16). What would … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 31-32

Notes on Numbers 21-22

As they march toward Canaan, the Israelites begin defeating army after army. Since they can’t go through Edom (Num. 20:18), they go around (Num. 21:4). Once again, they murmur against God. This is the tenth time that they whined about their situation, this time focusing on the quality of the free food they have been … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 21-22

Notes on Numbers 14-15

Once again, the children of Israel are complaining about their situation (Numbers 14). Their lack of patience is exactly what we deal with on a day to day basis. God promised them something, and it did not happen on THEIR time, so THEY are unhappy. This is what we all do. We want something NOW … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 14-15

Notes on Numbers 11-13

One of the things that always astounds me is the frequency with which the children of Israel take God for granted. They walked across the dry land when the Red Sea parted for them. They literally see the presence of God as a massive cloud and pillar of fire that surrounds their tabernacle every day. … Continue reading Notes on Numbers 11-13

Notes on Leviticus 19-21

Leviticus 19:15 says “Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honour the person of the mighty; but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbor.” This verse is both an anti-Marxist and anti-Capitalist attack. We should not hold up the powerful, wealthy titans of industry as … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 19-21

Notes on Leviticus 16-18

Leviticus 16 gives us a picture of Christ as the scapegoat. A bullock and a goat are killed as burnt offerings for the Israelites, while an additional goat is to take on “all their transgressions in all their sins (verse 21)” so that this goat would “bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land … Continue reading Notes on Leviticus 16-18
