Dear friends and family, Greetings from cold and cloudy New York City! Quite a change from the heat and humidity I was experiencing just last week. I was attempting to mentally prepare myself for the change, but it’s hard to adapt to a 70 degree (Fahrenheit) difference. I’m thankful for the opportunity to be in […]

Warrior, King, and Peacemaker

Reading: Psalm 46 This morning as I write, there are some extremely controversial nuclear negotiations going on in Geneva, Switzerland. The US is backing what Israel terms a “bad deal” with Iran to allow it to continue building nuclear weapons aimed at annihilating Israel. Many attempt to ignore Iran’s true desires in the name of […]

End Times: Tensions in the Middle East

More and more our world seems to be spinning-out of control, with many countries slowly moving towards dictatorship and totalitarianism, with more sanctions and limited freedoms.

Today’s Reading: Genesis 16. (Context: Ishmael’s birth.) In Genesis 16, Abram’s wife, Sarai, becomes impatient and forces her husband to have a child with her slave, that she might become his concubine.

The Entire History of the World (Daily Devotional)

Today’s Reading: Revelation 12. (Context: This chapter is the history of the world through God’s eyes. It is both incredibly different from normal world history, and far simpler. As far as its literary structure, it is almost like studying an ancient mythological work, perhaps similar to Homer’s Iliad. ) Personally, I love world history, especially as it relates to Biblical […]
